back to writing some nice python scripts! Discovered last night the very nice python-cookbook and started to improve some python scripts inspired by some snippets from there. Also tested the python-qt binding (compiled from the source for qt3.0). It seems great. Especially that you can use the QTDesigner and pyuic to generate python-qt templates. I liked the clean API of QT even in c++. Is there any better combination than python/qt? not swing/java you bet.

i had some discussions with my co-developers about the XA-Resource-DB-Implementation in our xots. Many Databases don't support so called thread-migration which is very ugly. it means that every thread which gets involved in a database transaction has to somehow call xa_end before the "prepare" of the 2PC-Protocol can be started. This makes it hard to choose the thread-model of an application freely. I really don't like this XA-stuff...
