It's impossible to say. It depends on how much content you will have. I realize you don't know this either, so you'll have to guess. I agree with Ulf that it's better to have more space than less.

The links Jaikiran provided contain most of my thoughts on this topic. One big thing - we decided to fork from JForum 2.1.8 and are not merging our changes into the main stream. This means we own our fork forever. If you ever want to pull in JForum again, I recommend donating as many of your changes back to JForum 3 as possible.

That said, we make more changes that you'll need to. Partly because we needed backward compatibility with our old forum software.



The links provided to your blog are very helpful. I wanted to be part of JForum community to report the changes or bugs which i found and fixed it. Unfortunately, it looks like the forums are not supported anymore since you cannot even register.

Even for a company where every penny counts, that doesn't make sense. The price differential between a 20GB disk and a 200GB disk is so small these days, that this will turn into a loss if you even have to move the DB once in the app's lifetime because of limited disk space. While 20GB is plenty for a stock JForum installation, DBs have a tendency to acquire new tables and new attributes over time, in addition to the growing amount of data. It may seem penny-wise to save on hard disk space, but it's pound-foolish.



Wish i can convince but thanks for your input. I will keep monitoring when it goes live to see how much the usage is. If it is extreme then probably will extend the DB space.

Thank you



I don't know the answers to your other questions, but you might find this journal article by Jeanne useful. Jeanne played a major part in the forum migration and has blogged about some of it here



This is very useful. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your reply. I asked this question just to get a general idea about the DB space from people who have experience with the forums software and when you work for a company every penny does count :--) . I think i will go with 20GB for the start.

Hello Ranchers,

I tried to post a question on the JForums community but it looks like that no one can register over there anymore as i get an error of Java.util.arraylist. Since JavaRanch is running on top of JForums i thought you might be able to answer my simple question.

I am implementing JForums for one of our production application. We have close to 4000 users registered. As of now we don't know how many people will take advantage of the forums software (Like creating topics, uploading files, etc) which we are implementing until it goes live. My question to you is how much database space do you think should be appropriate for JForums ?. We are using Postgres 8.3. Any issues which you encountered while merging the software will be very helpful. As of now i have made alot of changes and has been testing thoroughly on my local machine. Found couple of bugs with SSO and the forum software itself but was able to fix it also.

Thank you

Forget about articles, news or media. I can assure you this much that java and .Net future is brighter than any other language specially in USA. Recently i have discovered one more thing also that if you are an expert in core java or swing and are looking for a job just in this specific part, you will be disappointed big time.

Almost all the jobs these days ask for j2ee experience specially jsp, servlet, database and a framework. I have never used EJB but my company wants me to learn struts and spring framework because of their popularity and most of the fortune500 companies are using either one of these frameworks.

So forget about the media just concentrate on J2EE and trust me you will not be disappointed.

Hi Everyone. I am currently living in memphis, Tn and working for a fortune500 company as a java developer. I need to do my masters next year. In order to do that i searched a university(University Of Memphis) and came to know that one of the programs(Applied Computer Science) is the best suitable program for me because they offer more practical ecommerce courses like web application, data mining, database, etc and some business courses also.

To get admitted in this program either a GRE score or GMAT score is good. I bought both of these books barrons GRE and barrons GMAT. My only drawback is my english(Not in speaking but vocabulary) and geometry. GRE have 3000 vocabulary word list and from talking and getting advices from people i came to know GMAT is easier than GRE.

Which one do you think i should give GRE or GMAT?. I got 2 months to prepare.

Thank You

What are you trying to accomplish? its better if you make another class which have getter and setter methods for the flight. Once a user clicks on submit button i am assuming you would like to save it in a txt file. this can be done using the toString() method in your flight class.

Hello All. I have a servlet by the name of CookieLoginServlet. if the login is successful then another servlet "ContentServlet" will display a Wellcome page. For some reason the webpage stays at the same place and does not forward the request to contentservlet.

Meaning if i enter a correct username and password which exist in mydatabase then a wellcome page will display if not then it will send the login form again stating that the password is invalid. Any clues?

CookieLoginServlet



and here is my contentservlet class


Thanks
