<div>Possibly. Is that the only way to go... is OTP the answer</div>
<div>or is there another paradigm/behaviour/pattern that works</div>
<div>for these situations. Hot code loading is one of the reasons</div>
<div>I like Erlang and quite often my processes crash because</div>
<div>of dependencies on the old code. <br><br> </div>

http://www.trapexit.org/index.php/Building_An_OTP_Application</a> also has a<br>section on releases. I've done niether myself though. Is this what your<br>referring to or some finer point I've missed?<br><br><br>Jeff.
