The last couple of weeks where a total mess, crunch mode… no time to eat, sleep, think or write/blog. Sorry for the lack of updates.
Scott Guthrie wrote a post on MySpace.com handling a very impressive amount of page views (approximately 1.5 billion page views per day). Christopher Bissel, managing architect on MySpace.com mentioned on the mailing list that a good portion of MySpace.com’s runs on iBATIS. A couple of months ago I was called in to tune a badly performing application where we eventually ended up using iBATIS. This experience forced me to think hard about performance when using object relational mapping patterns, frameworks and tools. iBATIS lives up to its promise.
