Genevestigator V3: A Reference Expression Database for the Meta-Analysis of Transcriptomes

Figure 1

System architecture of Genevestigator. The white spaces show the possible boundaries between computers. The application server modules are running in a Tomcat web container and communicate with the database through the JDBC protocol. A thick Java applet reads data from an application server and a cache subsystem through a custom RPC protocol tunneled over http/https. A load-balancing subsystem ensures that the clients can communicate with a scalable cluster of application servers. Moreover, the application servers can be transparently configured to work with a database cluster of an arbitrary size.
