Re: [CODE4LIB] NoSQL - is this a real thing or a flash in the pan?

2010-04-12 Thread Robert Sanderson
Depends on the sort of features required, in particular the access patterns, and the hardware it's going to run on. In my experience, NoSQL systems (for example apache's Cassandra) have extremely good distribution properties over multiple machines, much better than SQL databases. Essentially,

Exposing the records as Linked Data, rather than just plain old XML would be an interesting demonstration of how the library world can generate and, more importantly, curate massive amounts of data. They could then be linked to and from by other resources/services -- for example linking a copy of

Re: [CODE4LIB] XML Schema vs Library APIs (OAI-PMH/SRU/unAPI)

That is (still) incorrect. A single schema may contain multiple namespaces, and there isn't a unique identifier for a schema. For example, any simple Dublin Core based syntax must have at least two Namespaces, Dublin Core and the wrapper element. SchemaLocation is not unique as there can be many

Here's some off the top of my head: * Separation of concerns -- You can keep your server side data transfer and change the front end easily by working with the javascript, rather than reworking both. * Lax Security -- It's easier to get into trouble when you're simply inlining HTML received,

To be (more) controversial... If it's okay to require headers, why can't API keys go in a header rather than the URL. Then it's just the same as content negotiation, it seems to me. You send a header and get a different response from the same URI. Rob On Mon, Dec 2, 2013 at 10:57 AM, Edward
