I am looking to incorporate Poco into our module which is currently written with boost.
I need to make a stronger case to the company to support the introduction of Poco.
I have been looking for some evidence to support the following.
1- Is it safe to mix Poco and Boost – what happens if we mix Poco threads with Boost threads / Poco Mutexs with Boost Mutexs etc / Poco filesystem and Boost filesystem etc.
2- Is it the case that Poco must be used in isolation or was it designed to work with boost?
3- I have noticed at least one company that is mixing Poco and Boost along with the STL.
– (http://www.weinzierl.de/en/development/kdrive.html) are more people mixing the two libraries / any issues reported?
In general our main concern is that if we use Poco, we get some great features but we must phase out boost.
I don’t think this is the case I think they should work fine side-by-side, I am wondering is there any document to support including them both?
If you have any links to any documents to answer these questions that would be great.
