Raspberry Pi Running Apache Tomcat Server Hosting Ontopia Declared a Success

March 28, 2013

Raspberry Pi system enthusiasts will be excited to read Escape Velocity’s article, Ontopia Runs on Raspberry Pi. Ontopia, a collection of open source tools for building, preserving and developing Topic Maps based applications, reportedly works successfully on the Raspberry Pi, a credit card sized ARM GNU/Linux box based on the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s work. The article demonstrates,

“Using the Raspberry Pi to run the Apache Tomcat server that hosts the Ontopia software, response time is as good or better than I have experienced when hosting the Ontopia software on a cloud-based Linux server at my ISP.  Topic maps open quickly in all three applications and navigation from topic to topic within each application is downright snappy…

I am expecting the Pi to be viable development platform and a decent host for low-volume Tomcat-based demonstration applications that Pi?enthusiasts might create.”

The promising findings reported in the article hold the implication that the Pi may be capable of supporting more applications and technologies than previously thought. If you are interested in embedding taxonomy functions into a Raspberry Pi system, Ontopia has an answer. Pi enthusiasm has spread especially among high school and grade schoolers. Fans even meet up in monthly “Raspberry Jams” where like-minded fans discuss the ins and outs of the system.

    Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!
