( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi Folks,

I'm about to embark on the largest web application venture I've ever been exposed to and for a very reasonable amount of compensation. This project will include it all: terabytes of space to work with, multiple read/write databases, possible server clusters, and the necessity for scalability.

I'll be using a pre-existing software package to modify and create this large application, and will have a good deal of time to do it in.

My 4 questions are:

1. What do I need to know about large web applications written in perl using a mysql backend?

2. Where can I find resources on programming for server clusters? (web front end and mysql clusters)

3. What tools should I use for laying out the architecture of the project? (software architecture software, UML diagrams, etc.)

4. What other things am I going to need to take into consideration when I actually go to sit down and start coding this?

Grant me your wisdom those who have it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
