DoesNotWorkplace again

I don't get it. A demo site may once in a while go down. That does not mean that the initial setup has to be so careless. The server root isn't redirected to the application, all site messages are still generic. IBM seems to have procedures for absolutely everything but at the same time they can take a site to the web without any QA? This is an invitation to try interesting things. I wonder what happens if I call the generic sample applications of a WebSphere application server ...

At least the Instant Messaging does now work.

Yes it does. Try the Learning stuff and see how easy (hard) it is to register for a class. Also, the speed of the system is lousy. I wonder if the box is a quad processor with 2gb of RAM.

So, as I said to Volker on IM the other day, this demo site wasn't yet ready for public release. The plan was to do so in the future, but for now it was meant to be internal only. I can't pull back the fact that I blogged it and that the URL is out there; but if this negative exposure keeps up, I might have to have it shut down.
In response to your question -- no, it hasn't been scaled up for the kind of volume that it seems to be getting hit with these days. When we formally launch it externally, I'll blog it again, and I'll indicate what has changed from where it's at now.

Taking it down might actually be a good idea. This system obviously has not been fully installed. I would not let it out on a public IP before that is done. You would only have to close the firewall to that host from the public internet.

Currently this looks like an early rehearsel on stage in front of a large audience.
