    I have to put something in the makefile. I switched
    it to Os from O3 based on my observations here. I also
    tested switching from O3 to Os on another program and
    found the same results -- equal run time results and
    better build times. So I decided to make Os the default
    for now. From reading about Os, it uses most of the
    O2 optimizations.

    O3 often contains optimizations that will increase binary size a lot and may even have negative impact on performance.
    O2 may be a good compromise between Os and O3.

    I found this to be an interesting perspective:

    "-O3 is the highest optimization level and could
    possibly make faster code but the applications that
    benefit from it are very few, usually image and
    video decoders and such. However the side effects,
    like larger binary size, affects everything.
    Larger binaries use more memory, load slower,
    cause more disc I/O, etc. So compiling a system
    with -O3 will have the effect that a few
    applications run slightly faster at the expense
    of the rest of the system running slightly slower
    and becoming less responsive."

    The program I noticed the increase in size is a
    server that users run. It isn't expected to be
    the primary application running on a machine.
    It is likely to be one of a number of servers
    on a machine.
    It does seem that O2 or Os is a better default
    for this particular server.

    to resort to Google Groups anymore.]

    Probably O2 is a better default than O3 for almost everything, not only for
    your server.
    I think it's also what most people use.

    And as far as I can tell, that's as close to the truth you get. g++
    -O2 is almost always beneficial; -Os or -O3 is *probably* worth it,
    but it depends heavily on the application, and at least some on the
    exact cache sizes etc of the CPU it's executing on.

    I removed the Windows support for the middle tier.
    The middle tier runs on Linux and Mac OSX and it
    should work on other UNIX flavors. The new version
    of the code --


    is about 40 lines smaller without the Windows related
    code/junk. To reiterate, the front tier still works
    on Windows, but have for the time being decided to
    drop Windows support for the middle tier.

    In the user interface part, I think the O2 and Os
    switches help a lot.

    But in the heavy work horse part the O3 mode
    is required.

    Anyway it acctually depends upon the ratio of the
    interfaces and the work horses involved in the system.

    I'm reviving a classic thread rather than starting a new
    thread. If you can provide some ideas on how to improve
    the code or documentation of C++ Middleware Writer,
    please let me know.

    I was looking at Springfuse


    and they say:

    "Configure Springfuse and generate your project foundation"

    I don't know their service that well, but the use of
    the word foundation seems questionable. At least for
    CMW I wouldn't describe it as providing the foundation
    of your project. I want it to be a helpful tool.

    They also say "Generate an application now."

    I wouldn't be comfortable with that on my site. The CMW
    doesn't generate applications. You have to generate your
    own application. The CMW can help you build an application,
    but that's as far as I would go.

    This is a function written by the C++ Middleware Writer:

    inline void Marshal :):cmw::SendBuffer& buf
    ,uint8_t az1
    ,::cmw::marshalling_integer const& az2
    ,cui_generator const& az3
    ,int32_t msg_length_max=10000){

    I'm thinking about changing the name of the function
    PartialReset to Rollback. The function resets the
    state of the buffer to what it was when the function
    started. But I'm not sure if it's a good idea to use
    Rollback outside of database context.?

    There are a number of older topics here that were only
    discussed a little or not at all.

    Also my middle tier, the CMW Ambassador, does synchronous
    writes to files. It is async as far as the networking
    stuff goes. I'm not sure how big of a deal that is. I
    believe the average request will amount to output (files)
    less than 20k in size. I hope that will help in terms of
    minimizing the impact of synchronous writes.?

    I beleive there are some who are counted by G-d as righteous.
    But I admit this:

    "Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, but who can find a
    trustworthy man?" Proverbs 20:6

    Some translations say goodness rather than loyalty.

    My sense is that interest in this classic thread has waned. I also think you've already gotten a lot of good advise: one, fix up the web page, tell people what your product is, how it compares to the competition, and why anyone would want to use it; two, support standard serialization formats ratherthan proprietary formats, nobody wants to be locked into an unknown vendor; three, prefer alternatives to code generation. But you already have this feedback.

    Best of luck,

    A month or two ago I did update a number of things on the
    website. I compare it to the serialization library in

    I haven't found a format that encodes string lengths as variable-
    length integers. I'm not sure if there are any major
    differences between other binary protocols and mine besides
    the string lengths... for regular container sizes and message
    lengths I use 4-byte integers.

    I haven't updated this change on my website yet, but I
    plan to soon. The old figure was $500 and now it's $999.

    I'm willing to donate 15 hours/week for six months to a project
    that uses the C++ Middleware Writer.

    Also I'll pay $999 and give a $1,000 investment in my company
    to someone who helps me find someone interested in this.

    I'll pay the $999 after working for four months on the project.
    Ebenezer Enteprises works to reward investments to 3 times the
    original amount. So the investment would result in between $0 and
    $3,000, depending on how things go for the company.

    Thanks for your comments.

    No. I guess this refers to checksums? I'm open to adding that.
    I use receiver-makes-right.

    No. Do you have some links on these items?
    I think it makes sense since a lot of strings aren't very long.
    It may be a dozen bytes every time a message is sent.

    I can use the internet as much as I like, but I looked at
    a plan recently that had a 3G/month limit. That's about
    100M/day. The archive I have to download is now 20,801 bytes.
    I've worked to keep its size down and am glad to have done so
    if more limited plans are coming.?

    Under those conditions you can download your archive 200 times per hour,
    which seems plenty.

    There's also the rest of the web site, my own web searching
    and some other traffic, including VOIP traffic. I don't know
    what it adds up to, but it would reduce the 200 number a lot.
