A Smalltalk Specific Needs (Continued) Horror Story


A corporate policy, written in the COBAL era, dictated that all source code be kept "on the mainframe", using a particular source code repository tool. Although a particular Smalltalk groupware tool would have achieved the same results, while providing tighter integration with Smalltalk, it was rejected because the cost of providing an interface to the mainframe tool -- about three person-months -- was considered too high.
Moral: be prepared to change or break "the rules" in order to best get the job done.
