comment Is there a “rigorous” method for choosing a database?
Rather than building the whole thing, I would suggest that 2 people (or 2 teams) spend a week investigating 2 competing options, build a small prototype and then decide. Don't make performance the deciding factor, but rather ease of coding and maturity of the tools you would end up using, from the developer to the sysadmin.

comment Make puppet agent restart itself
I don't really have the answer to your question, but have you investigated running puppet agent from crontab? It could pick up the changes in your file and it wouldn't leave in memory a process which ultimately wakes up at given intervals.

comment Postgres: Replicating over ssh at specific time frames
You may want to investigate if dblink postgresql.org/docs/current/static/contrib-dblink-function.html fits your requirement. You could keep the ssh tunnel and write a stored procedure on the local db which opens a connection to the remote db and manipulates the data. See also postgresonline.com/journal/index.php?/archives/44-guid.html for examples of using dblink.

comment javac compiler throwing error in CentOS 5.7
Is this VPS based on OpenVZ? I had an issue with Java and OpenVZ which looked like yours, in the end the only 2 solutions were either to use the IBM JDK or switch to a Xen VPS. See serverfault.com/questions/168080/java-vm-problem-in-openvz

comment Jetty Vs Tomcat for a JSF based social networking & sharing website
Keeping in mind that there is no license costs for both and that the scalability and performances will be more a function of your application code than anything else, my advice is to choose the one you're most familiar with. If you've developed your application on Tomcat, then keep using Tomcat for production, and the same thing about Jetty.

comment Our security auditor is an idiot. How do I give him the information he wants?
If your story is true, I support naming and shaming this individual and the company he works for.

comment tomcat problems in vulnerability scan
So a scan says that Tomcat is vulnerable to something on a server where Tomcat is not installed... That alone should tell you how useless this "vulnerability" scan is.

comment Switched Oracle to use Shared Servers, now Java app throws SQLRecoverableExceptions
Why did you switch to shared servers, expecially if the application worked fine with dedicated servers? Is there a special requirement that only shared servers fulfill?
