Sorry for the OT post. A few weeks ago, i read 'somewhere' about an independent fast food outlet in the US that was employing JIT compilation for their point of sale (and kitchen ordering) systems. This sounded very interesting as it theoretically would allow any kind of 'product' to be ordered from discrete assembled objects and the neccessay database updates applied on completion of the order (the 'exe' being compiled for the task at this point). Unfortunately, i didn't bookmark the page and can no longer find the reference that i had been reading.
just wondering if anyone here came across the same (or a similar) article recently?? what makes this approach interesting is the fact that 'new' code is built on the fly based on any number of differing overloads that programatically could be impossible to take account of.
anyway, here's hoping!!
 from memory, the 'system' utilised a template based class build design, therefore building unique code for each transaction. this is why (i believe) the app had to be built 'JIT' style.
btw - the references that i googled were:
NET Framework just-in-time
JIT compiler mscorpjt.dll
JIT fast food application
