Guys,

I was just wondering how JavaRanches forums work, i.e. how exactly is each post stored, is there a framewrok that manages this?

Im looking to do something similar, but for reviews of products sold on an eShop i.e. people can add feedback for a particular product.

Would I store these reviews in one flat file or in numerous small files, in the database, server or elsewhere?

Thanks in advance for your advice

Regards
Zein

As the link at the bottom of this page shows, we're using a product from InfoPop. Last I looked, they had evaluation versions of their products.
The evaluation versions might be the best way to find this out.

Thanks Ben for your reply. I'll look into infoPop. They do seem quite expensive.

Personally I was thinking given that 'reviews' of products on eShops are so common, most likey there would be some open source software available that could handle the who thing for you?

Is anyone aware of anything that would be able to help me?

Thanks in advance, regards
Zein

Search google, there are other open source forums/boards out there.
