comment What is it about functional programming that makes it inherently adapted to parallel execution?
Clear and example-rich answer. This is exactly the information I was looking for. Many thanks!

comment How should I handle database failures in a web application?
@husker, silly question but isn't MVC a bit excessive for such a simple application? I typically associate MVC with big, hulking applications (but I'm very new to the web game...)

comment How should I handle database failures in a web application?
I was hoping for concrete suggestions for how to achieve the behavior you are suggesting. Are there any common design patterns that can be applied to my case, for example?

comment How should I handle database failures in a web application?
@DanPichelman, thanks for your suggested answer. Unfortunately your link doesn't really address my question, which pertains to how I should structure my code to perform all the actions suggested in the answer you indicated (hence the design and architecture tag). I will edit my question to make this clearer!

comment How does the Zope Component Architecture (ZCA) relate to Service Component Architecture (SCA)?
@RobertHarvey, ah okay this seems to be what I was looking for, rather than SOA! Thanks!

comment How does the Zope Component Architecture (ZCA) relate to Service Component Architecture (SCA)?
@RobertHarvey, I'm reasonably familiar with Zope in the context of Twisted. I suppose my question can be rephrased as follows: Is there a common pattern for making use of registered components and utilities? I'm not sure component/utility registration fundamentally differs from using getattr on a submodule, for instance, and I can't even fathom why/how factories necessary or somehow more useful than class __init__ functions and/or metaclasses. The component-registration part of Zope strikes me as reinventing the (module) wheel.

comment How does the Zope Component Architecture (ZCA) relate to Service Component Architecture (SCA)?
@MartijnPieters, Yes, my question is a bit difficult to answer since it amounts to "what am I not understanding?" :) I haven't looked at Plone and Pyramid, but I am familiar with it's use in the Twisted project. I'll look at Plone/Pyramid though, thanks!

@MartijnPieters, I would also like to point out that the official Zope site seems to endorse "component architecture" (wiki.zope.org/zope3/ComponentArchitectureOverview) although perhaps this is distinct from SCA? wiki.zope.org/zope3/ComponentArchitectureOverview

comment How does the Zope Component Architecture (ZCA) relate to Service Component Architecture (SCA)?
@MartijnPieters, this surprises me. ZCA seems to have a notion of "services" (in the SCA sense) and is all about making highly-independent things talk to each other through strictly-defined interfaces. Is there a "Zope paradigm" of any sort? Could you address questions 3 and 4? Thanks!
