Hi: A couple of days ago, I edited my signature, because of two new certificates. I post a message after that. Signature got changed, no surprise there, but then when I read my previous posts, I found all those signature also had been changed. I think this is something quite contradict to the common sense, but of course, not annoying. I am working on my architecture assignment now, so I was more interested in architecture angle of things. So how does Javaranch keep all the posts, by entity beans? what kind of application server is used? what about web server? what is the design pattern? flyweight or interpret or fast lane? I will be really appreciate it if someone can provide that information. Thanks, :roll:
The HTML pages are generated dynamcially each time that the underlying .cgi file is modified. At that time everyones post count etc is updated to the current data. Apparently the signatures are updated then also.
