Webzzle - What if googling could get better (with some GlassFish inside)?
By alexismp on Apr 28, 2009
What if Google was not the last word in user search experience? What if the folksonomy provided by Wikipedia could help enhance and qualify every search made on the Internet? Webzzle is replacing keyword searches by multiple queries mixing Wikipedia concepts, pages contents and syntax operators to offer the best possible data to the end-user, all powered by a GlassFish runtime.
GlassFish was chosen over WebLogic and JBoss and uses clustering features such as centralized admin. Webzzle uses a MySQL 5.1 back-end and runs on Solaris with ZFS. When asked about the experience with the product, Webzzle's Xavier Vaucois replies that it offered "100% availability" and that "above all no major issue in our case" is the feature he likes best! This short slide deck and the traditional detailed questionnaire describe in further details this GlassFish production story.
