Premptive “Matrix Reloaded” Post

5 hours and 35 min. left until the movie…. I promise to find an appropriate place to blog my non-dot-net related Matrix Reloaded impressions, and I hope everyone else does too 🙂   

And now on to the important stuff:

1. Can anyone explain why MyRecordSet.Clone() clones only the structure and not the data? What were they thinking??

2. Does anyone have experience with 3rd party grids in realtime environments?  I am familiar with Infragistics, SyncFusion and ComponentOne but have not perf-tested them with multiple updates per second or situations which require selective repainting of partial rows.

3. Has anyone used CORBA.NET ( or a similar libaray for accessing CORBA classes from within managed code?  I could go the long way and embed C++ into my solution but I would prefer a solution which someone else has already debugged 🙂

And after reading Roy’s great RegEx articles, a tip for RegEx users:
Never use them in an inner loop of a routine that needs to be fast.  There is a price to pay for all the coolness that they give you, and that price is performance.  I have used Regexes in the past during the development phase for their elegance and flexibility, and then later replaced them (during testing & optimization) with ass-ugly hardwired code which gave performance improvements of 100% or more.

    Im using the remoting-corba lib for an app that accesses an IBM IMS database through IONA’s corba stack. Works great! Soap is so much easier, though. Im rewrapping the data from the corba object in a web method, and making a ‘live’ mainframe soap service.

    Aren’t you able to compile the Regex statements for multiple uses? Or maybe i’m thinking Python…
