For those of you who have heard nothing of my plans to write a RosFS
service for ReactOS, here are some details about my plan.
RosFS is a small service running on system initialization by default
that indexes files, folders, users, devices, and network resources can
hold metadata via MySQL, sleepycat DB, TCL, Apache, and Perl; which will
all be embedded within the service itself. RosFS will hold encrypted
resources based off of a key that is created with the first startup of
ReactOS, it changes every 30 days to ensure security. The RosFS can be
accessed online via the built in web server with can be an encrypted
connection - SSL, or TLS. User ACLs can be set on a machine level or a
domain level. RosFS will support a SQL-like querying language that can
be written easily - it will have triggers, procedures, functions, and
saved queries - which are all logged. Triggers will be supplied by a
TCL-like language with features of Perl. An service will provide users
with current system updates, patches, etc stored on a domain server -
this option will only be installed on a powerful server with pretty good
hardware - ie: not for home use!!!
A few problems I know that will arise in developing such a project are:
3) Where to keep the files on the system
4) The RosFS query language will be trouble to write and maintain
depending on if a user uses such Databases like ORACLE, MySQL, MSSQL,
5) Explorer Integration - Will Explorer.exe need to be rewritten to
allow the addition of Metadata structures, etc.
6) Web integration - Perl, PHP, TCL, CGI, ISAPI???
Please send me comments and concerns about the RosFS project.
