Dynamic Web Development with Seaside

17.5Which method should I use?

You have the following choices for serving static files with your Seaside application:

  • The default answer is pretty simple: if you don’t know anything about web servers, use FileLibrary.
  • If you want to have your static resources versioned inside your Smalltalk image and don’t have too many (or too large) resources, use FileLibrary.
  • If you prefer to keep your static resources on your file system where you can edit and version them with your favorite file-based tools but you don’t want to run a separate web server, go read about how to serve static content from your image in Chapter 17.
  • Otherwise read Section 23.3 about Apache file serving and configuration.
