Mach-II 1.5 Modules

One of the great new features in Mach-II 1.5 is modules, which is handy way to drop reusable functionality into Mach-II applications. The great thing about modules is that it can be a little bit of code, like maybe an authentication module, or a full-blown application like, oh, I don't know, a blog maybe?

As a proof of concept, we dropped MachBlog into the Mach-II 1.5 web site as a module, and with some relatively minor tweaking by Peter, MachBlog works like a champ as a module. (Remember that MachBlog was written before Mach-II 1.5 so it wasn't surprising that we needed to tweak some things, which were more or less limited to using Mach-II 1.5's new BuildUrl() method to get the module links to work correctly.)

So what are you waiting for? Go check out the new Team Mach-II Blog, powered by MachBlog and Mach-II 1.5, on the brand-new mach-ii.com!
