[Seaside] JSON REST in VisualWork Seaside

Regarding porting code between VW and the Monticello family (Squeak/Pharo/GemStone) you could try using a combination of STIG[1] and FileTree[3]. STIG is a VW implementation of the Cypress package format[2]. FileTree is a (Squeak/Pharo/GemStone) implementation of the Cypress package format.

Cypress writes packages to disk, so git/github can be used for managing the shared source code. If you go this route you'll be able to feedback bugfixes from the VW side and easily import new updates to your VW implementation from the FileTree side ...

It's probably easier to go this route...

| It should work in theory, I know it's working on GemStone an VAST.
| Firstly it uses pragmas but the Pharo/Squeak/GemStone/VAST pragma API
| is modelled after the VW pragma API. That should work in theory. The
| second thing it uses are method argument names. You'll need to write
| one class extension on the VisulalWorks (or Cincom Smalltalk)
| platform
| class for this.
| If you need to port it manually AFAIK there is a tool to directly
| load
| the MC package without filing out and in. It's probably best to ask
| on
| a Cincom mailing list like vwnc though.
