Hi all

In the CAB message board, it seems that SCBAT is referred to whenever someone asks how cab is used in the real world. That's why I decided to post here a list of topics I'm eager to see how they should be covered with CAB:

1) Distributed app. where multiple clients share a common service layer (i.e. remotely on an app server). The Business Model is only accessed through the service layer. How do you manage
- State synchronization on each level
- optimistic/pessimistic locking

2) An application with more than 10 items in the model. I'd really like to see how cab is acting in a more real-world-like scenario, havin a database with 10'000 or 100'000 items.
- Can we build application that run all day long (i.e. in a call center, where you're likely to process 100 and more Customers a day) without restarting the app?
- What impact does the number of items handled by the app have on the work item management?
At least the CAB bank teller quick start did not seem to handle 10'000 customers with 3 accounts each very well...

More to come, I guess...

I'm verry interested in your opinion and, of course, any experience in the fields mentioned above.
Cheers,
Marc
