Content Reprocessing in Bulk

May 21, 2007 at 02:03 PM | categories: MarkLogic | View Comments

At last week's 2007 MarkLogic User Conference, I talked about bulk reprocessing of XML content. The problem is simple: you have 100 GB to 100 TB of XML, and you need to make a small change to each and every document. The problem is simple, but the solution is not.

As part of the talk, I demonstrated and released a tool for this, called Corb (or "CoRB", if you prefer). Hopefully this will save someone else from re-inventing the wheel.

Oh, and I talked about scalability, too. How many TB of XML would you like?

Her Name Here

I'm now accepting re-nominations for a new cat. I won't have her until the end of next week, but she's already a movie-star on this interweb thingy. I didn't have anything to do with that video, or these pictures - they're both from the shelter. But I did spend some time with her in that same room.

She seems reasonably intelligent. I predict that she will be a mighty huntress.

However, her name is too short. I believe that cats should have names of around five syllables: this gives plenty of scope for short nicknames, while allowing for an easy change of nicknames as the cat's personality matures. For example, Kilimanjaro was known as Jar, Jaro, Killer, and Kilo (and probably less flattering things).

I'm toying with Carolynnetta. It has plenty of syllables, and also contains her shelter-name. Or I could name her after a song, but I'd need to stretch that out a bit.
