The RPM distribution for Whitebeam contains the complete system. This covers both the core
Whitebeam Engine and the data storage templates.
The core engine is very much analogous to current alternative technologies such as PHP, JSP
and ASP/.NET. The templates are analogous to some of the libraries built on-top of those
systems - for example PEAR-DB in the case of PHP.
Although the templates add a lot of functionality, including the ability to efficiently write
sophisticated applications without recourse to SQL, it seems to be a barrier to Whitebeam
For those people that would rather 'roll their own' frameworks under a robust Server-Side
packages - postgres-core and postgres-templates.
In the mean time documentation will be added around a simplified Whitebeam installation.
