Wow. I just cleaned up the old IMS-only metadata entry component in CAREO, and lo and behold, IT'S ALIVE! It actually does a pretty decent job.
Next, I'll need to clean up the logic that determines who is allowed to edit an existing object, then I can re-activate the "Edit" link on the object listing component.
The "default" and "commons" themes will have the "Add Object" button now, and as soon as I can scare up the graphics for the other themes, they'll be activated too. Cool.
Update: Just looked at the timestamps on the last 2 posts in this weblog... an hour and a half to go from "I should look into building this for our client" to "It works, and it's live". Not bad. Have I mentioned how much I love WebObjects?
