Hi, I thought that I read that LS2 would support multiple storage options. Specifically, there was some discussion of including an EAV option where all responses would be included in a single table with one response per row. Was that ever implemented?

LS2 was stopped due to lack of resources. Instead it was decided to improve the code base of LS1.x brand gradually.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Yes, I did see that development update. Too bad. I was thinking in the context of Pooja's database API which is ongoing. It looks like it is going to support this "section flat" idea but perhaps that's the only option.

Hi, EAV model hasn't been implemented yet, but can be added as a plugin, as the porting has been done. Also now "section flat" is not the only option, we also have flat engine implemented (which is supposed to handle the LS1 response structure).

P.S.: Apologies for late reply :)

Thank you. That answers my question. And thanks for all your work this summer. Do you think these changes are going to be incorporated into LS1 in a 2011 release?

I'm afraid not because DBSE couldn't be integrated with LS1 as it involved quite a lot work and was thought to interfere with the main LS1 porting.

Ah ha. I see. But if development work on LS2 was stopped because of no resources, and the DBSE will not work with LS1, what will become of DBSE?

(Sorry for all the newbie questions...)

DBSE is truly a "future feature" which will be integrated with main LS1 once it is fully-fledged.
