Is it safe to use doc.java.sun.com?
One of the commentators on my last blog entry asked if it was safe
to do translations: would they be lost? It is pretty safe. I can't
guarantee anything, but no translation has ever been lost. The way
the database works is extremely reliable. The server is in a very
safe server room. The disks are 3-way redundant. Running load tests
on the server software on my laptop, it can do almost 2000 pages
per second - and the real server is a lot faster. So yea... It's
safe. It can take a pounding. I've got a to-do list a mile long,
but the translation database won't get trashed.
