Paul Barry 3.0

January 28, 2007

So I’ve finally finished the latest version of my site. The first version of my site went online on March 3rd of 2006 using WordPress. Then on my last birthday, I switched to Typo. Now, I’ve got up the first version of my site that I have built myself, using Java, Stripes, Spring and Hibernate. I’m using Resin as the Web/Application server and MySQL for the database. The OS is Ubuntu and it is hosted with VPSLand.

I hoping that this version will be more stable than the previous version. If you are having any problems using the site, let me know.



So any plans on releasing it to the public? After your done with the beta?

Interesting. So do you still feel like Ruby or Python offer no real development advantages? Or would advantages show up more after an initial implementation when things have to be changed or not? Just wondering if you've gained in additional insights along the way. Obviously, it's not a real study since you didn't actually write the other packages but I'd still be interested to hear more of your thoughts on this.

How long did it really take? Any estimate as to the overall effort?

I feel that there are advantages and disadvantages of Java, Ruby and Python. Ruby and Python can allow you to build a site by writing less code, but as the site gets more complex, it can be handled. Take a screen like this for example:

How would you build the controller for that in Rails or Django? I think it would be harder to do than the example code given on this page:

But, you may not have to do complex form handling like that, so then Rails or Django might be a good choice.
