Presentation: The Design and Architecture of InfoQ

by Niclas Nilsson on Jun 15, 2008 | NOTICE: The next QCon is in London Mar 2-6, Join us!

InfoQ.com is a next generation web app/portal implementation combining the latest advancements in portal technology (JSR 170) and web development (WebWork, Spring, AspectJ). In this presentation, Alexandru Popescu and Floyd Marinescu walks through the good, the bad, and the ugly of building InfoQ.com; from initial requirements (or lack theoreof), designs, implementation choices, and deployment issues, and all the lessons learned along the way.

In the talk, they examine some of the most interesting features of the site and show their implementation in the web layer, domain model, and DB of a modern tag-driven CMS approach that is the foundation of InfoQ.com.

From the presentation:

Our experiences with JCR

  • Pros

    • storage schema (JCR doesn’t impose a fixed schema)
    • Search built into the spec (Jackrabbit ships with Lucene)
    • XPath query language
    • Support for versioning
    • Support for locking
    • Data portability - import/export between JSR 170 implementations and storage systems
    • Hierarchical schema makes i18n easy
  • Cons

    • Lack of tooling - no SQL Explorer/data admin tools
    • Lack of convenience frameworks (ie: Hibernate, etc)
    • Very different and unusual compared to common stacks
    • No established, documented best practices / patterns
    • Lack of trained developers / resources

Set aside 50 minutes and find out how InfoQ.com really works.

I am having problems viewing this video/presentation by Ali Motaz

I click play, but the video never really starts, it seem to freeze at the screen of the big play thing image/button

Hi Ali


Did you try clicking the big Play button?

if that doesn't work i suggest closing all your browser windows and opening the page again.


i just tested it on both IE and Firefox and it works :)

Re: I am having problems viewing this video/presentation by Philip Luppens

Actually, I have the same problem as Ali M.: the video never starts playing (neither in FF nor Opera). It might be a proxy issue.

Re: I am having problems viewing this video/presentation by Philip Luppens

I stand corrected - it does work, but streaming doesn't work (meaning I have to sit through the complete download of the file), due to the proxy I'm behind (as I suspected).

Re: Please create a link for download by Colin Jack

Being able to download the movies would be very useful, especially so I could view them on a portable devide (e.g. IPod touch). Are there any plans to allow this?
