Project Description
This project is aimed at efficient accessing of a service oriented framework for supporting a voluminous database. This database is a large media database which would provide the client with media files using these framework services. The performance of these services is improved by adding caching mechanism to the system.

Languages Used
C, Memcache utility & library, PHP.


Nowadays, efficacious accessibility of data stored in large databases is a major aspect of any system which needs to access data stored in such databases especially over the web. In this project report, we first study an existing service oriented framework for supporting a voluminous database created by Mime360. This database is a large media database which would provide the client with media files using these framework services.
The main purpose of this system is to provide accessibility to media files efficiently and only to the authorized users. One of the major quirks in this proposed system is its caching mechanism that will improve the performance of the existing framework.
In this report, we demonstrate the services provided by the system and the type of architecture suitable for such a system i.e. the service oriented architecture. We also illustrate the critical…...

...Digital Media: A Better Way to Learn Educators and parents have legitimate concerns about the effects of the Digital Age on learning. Digital media has changed dramatically since the development of the Internet and improvement of wireless technology. John Palfrey, Professor of Law and Urs Gasser, Executive Director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, both employed by the prestigious Harvard Law School, have written about how the world has been reshaped because of this new digital world in Born Digital. They found that this period “is the most rapid period of technological transformation ever, at least, when it comes to information” (3). This transformation of digital media over the last twenty-five years and the introduction of tools like the iPad create a clutter of information that threaten the ability to think deeply and concentrate, which has made the current educational system obsolete and ineffective. This same technology can be utilized to create the school of the future, by improving learning in the Digital Age. Digital natives, ”born after 1980,” do not know the world without the Internet, cell phones, computers, tablets and everything else that networked digital technology has provided (Palfrey 1). They “study, work, write and interact with each other in ways that are very different from the ways” their parents and grandparents grew up. (Palfrey 2). Palfrey and Gasser found that digital natives are comfortable with this new technology and......

Electronic and Digital Media

...Electronic and Digital Media Industry Technology has played a huge role in the electronic and digital media. Electronic and digital media today is right in our fingertips for information. Not to mention cell phones that have built in cameras and internet connection. Nowadays media has a huge impact in society. Technology is changing and will continue to change, this forces society to keep up with all the changes. Most of the society is dependent on electronic products and are spending less time with people face-to-face and more on the internet. Electronic media will most likely replace print media, and newsprint will only be found in certain museums and electronic files. A brief summary on how electronic technology of photography, recording and transmission has advanced from the beginning discovery to the present. In 1826, Joseph Nicephore Niepce made the world’s first true photograph of a scene. The camera was invented in 1826. The invention of the camera has developed dramatically over the years. First portable camera developed by Friedrich Risner a German mathematician. In 1931 an American photographer, Harold E. Edgeron, improved in the films and electronic flash. In 1861, color photographs taken by Tomas Sutton an English photographer. He also invented the single-lens reflex camera. In 1877, Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, the first recording and playback machine. Samuel Morse invented the telegraph allowing long distance communication. ...

Electronic and Digital Media

...Digital Media Matthew McCormick Course # Com/225 May 20, 2013 Maurice Nelson Digital Media Technology has molded the electronic and digital industry into what it is today. Society is dependent and addicted to technology and the potential to make life easier through it. Research for school projects is no longer spent with hours in the library, reading and taking notes, or combing through dictionaries and encyclopedias. Students now have the internet, where with one click they have access to a whole world of information, and they can do it anywhere in the world. Road trips are traveled by GPS not through hours of route planning in a map. Television is sought at more now than ever by kids in place of playing outside. Photography has made major improvements when discussing technology. In 1826, Joseph Niepce, a French inventor, discovered the first way to capture images. Using a pewter plate and some light sensitive materials, he was able to capture the first picture. It took 8 hours of sun light exposure to capture the first picture, the courtyard of his home (Karwatka, 2007). Today, you can take a high quality digital picture instantly, virtually anywhere, with almost any electronic device. Recording sound has also had to evolve with technology. Thomas Edison invented the first recording device in 1877. He named his device the phonograph, meaning sound writer (Lerner, 2008). He used a cylinder wrapped in tinfoil that rotated as someone shouted into a......

...Today nobody can avoid the influence exerted by digital media. Digital media is the type of media being computerized, in contrast with traditional media, such as newspapers, magazines, films and pictures. As digital media is constantly evolving, its future trend will be discussed and elaborated in the following essay. To begin with, the development of digital media poses a serious threat on traditional media, including newspapers, magazines, radio and cable TV. Christopher Zara, the reporter from International Business Times, has reported in his article that newspapers industries have shrunk by 40% in the last ten years, one of the fastest declining industries in US. On the contrary, there is an upward trend in digital media. The popularity of digital media will continually increase as it has a lot of key benefits, the major advantage lies in its convenience. It allows people to store and access information and data at anywhere at any time by using computers, smart phones or any of the various electronic gadgets flooding the market. With everybody owning at least one of these essential devices, society is relying on digital media more than ever and will be more in the future. On top of that, digital media enables people to have more freedom to select what they want to view and contribute easily in our online world. As a result, its users will increase dramatically in the next few decades. Printed media might disappear altogether in the future, which would be a loss of the......

Digital Media

...Digital Media and Technology Professor November 28, 2013 Education in Digitalization Our group decided to do our paper on the topic of Education in the Digital age which was our first project of the year. Education has changed so much over the years and it has done that very fast. From having textbooks and covering them to now classes having I pad’s in them and almost diminishing textbooks from school. As technology advances everyday, we can only imagine how our education will be in schools in even just 5 years. Research, studying, student testing, disabled education, hybrid classes and the changing roles of teachers in today's digital age are some of the main topics I will be talking about. Textbooks are not only very important for a students education but also puts a hole in their wallet. On average a student spends roughly $1,200 a year on textbooks whether you are renting them or buying them. That is a staggering number for a book that sometimes doesn't even help you too much in class. A single sheet of paper to make costs just 5 cents, but that adds up with how many pages are in a book overall. Some of the jobs that textbooks make were more than I expected. You can have jobs such as authors, illustrators, publishers, editors, lumbar people, paper mill workers and shippers. The authors are the people who write the text in the book, the illustrators can print in the pictures into the book, the editors look for any misspelling or misprint that the......

Many employees will be concern about their future at DDM, as centralization is usually an indication many positions will be eliminated. The strategic business decision of centralizing all support services open the doors to many new opportunities. From a payroll perspective the centralization will allow payroll professionals to gain knowledge of different jurisdiction legislative laws, understanding collective agreements and also obtain training in processing U.S. payroll and learning new payroll system. While there may be employees that will be eager to embrace this change, this announcement may also bring on job security concerns to payroll employees at different sites. Many employees may be upset and angry because the centralization may mean that their positions will be eliminated. This can definitely......

Digital Media

...The media of mass communication have long played a fundamental role in people’s lives. The media informs, persuades, entertains, and even sells. For the most part; mass media is only owned by a few private companies, as we learned in the “media ownership” discussion. According to the “Telecommunications Act of 1996,”, this act was to spawn some competition the broadcast companies. It also eased the restrictions on the number of television stations one individual company can own. The media, controlled by power corporations and government organizations, has positioned itself to influence people in all manner of ways, but no one group controls the system as a whole. 90% of all television media is controlled by only six broadcast corporations. Media can provide companionship, shape perception. They are fundamental to an informed and educated public.(Pavlik, McIntosh 2004). “An important aspect of digitization is that the boundaries between different media have brought into question, and a presupposition has the developer that we are in an era of media convergence” (Storsul,Fagerjord (2008). Strosul and Fagerjord believe that “blurring the border between media does not have to mean convergence. There is also development toward stronger differentiation of media in which elements from earlier separate media and sectors are combined in new ways.” In communication, there are three forms of interpersonal,......

Ethical Issues in Digital Media

...Ethical Issues with Digital Media Introduction Ethics in digital media involves the moral problem that is associated with the adoption of new communication technologies in daily activities. New advancement of technology has resulted in different techniques that have altered the manner in which business and other activities are undertaken in the world. Examples of digital media are online journalism, blogging sites, and social media. The major concern in the ethics of digital media is the effect of information that is transmitted through these channels. Ordinarily, the role of digital media is to act as a medium of communication. However, in the case that the accuracy of the information is not controlled, it can lead to various impacts to the society. The digital media played a very significant role in the financial crisis through the spread of information. As such, this paper analyses digital media ethics in relation to the global financial crisis and its effects to the society. The World Financial Crisis The global economic crisis has caused many problems nearly to all the sectors of the economy in the world. Many countries have suffered deep in their growth domestic product while recession has a common experience all over the world. The severity of the crisis has persisted to the recent times, but this can be attributed to the debts incurred by some developed economies like Greece even after strong support from other countries. As a result, the world’s financial......

Notion of Authorship in Digital Media

...Authorship and Digital Media With the widespread adoption of personal computers, especially those connected to broadband Internet, the media landscape has changed drastically. All media-related industries, from newspaper to television to music and more, are experiencing this shift and are desperately attempting to react to the changing media landscape that has placed much of the control on the consumers rather than the producers of these media forms. Two digital media forms experiencing particularly interesting shifts of power are video games and digital music. Consumers of digital media forms such as video games and digital music files have complicated the traditional notion of authorship through their use of digital media technologies, which allows them to use digital media as an instrument of expression. Before delving into the intricacies surrounding this new form of authorship present in digital media it is first important to discuss the notion of authorship prior to the emergence of this digitally induced phenomenon. In non-digital mediums such as books, radio, and television, authorship exists as an individual endeavor, as authorship is only granted to the original author(s) of the media. As a consumer of this non-digital media the only point of contention as it relates to authorial expression is limited is the debate over authorial intent or narrative interpretation in these non-interactive cultural forms. Books, television, and radio are more or less consumed......

Watermarking: Legalities of Digital Media

...Watermarking: Legalities of Digital Media Derrick Harper Course name and number Instructor name Outline I. Introduction II. History III. The Basics of Watermarking IV. Watermarking Applications V. A Simple Watermark: Patchwork VI. Current Work in Watermarking VII. Conclusion VIII. Works Cited Introduction It's no news to anyone that's reading this that the meteoric rise of the Internet in recent years has significantly increased the availability of all forms of media. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the realm of commercial musical recordings, where Napster and other internet-based distribution systems have made incredible volumes of musical content widely available, all without the consent of the music's originators. This situation, though, is not unique to the music industry, as photographers, filmmakers, and other content-originators all have the same problem to varying degrees. The solution, and even the need for a solution, to this problem of copyright infringement is still a topic that is open to great debate, but there is no debating the fact that some interesting and novel technology has been designed to help. Digital image watermarking, the practice of secretly embedding a piece of information in an image, is one of the more interesting of these technologies, and deserves some consideration. It is the purpose of this paper to give the reader an overview of watermarking and the diverse benefits that it offers. We begin with a......

The research helps the effect of social media and the technological advancements that have occurred in the recent past on an individual’s personality and self-esteem. The study has incorporated digital ethnography and social networking analysis to critically examine and analyze the focus groups at hand. Social networking sites are an important aspect in the digital world and involve increased networking of existing and compound relations which goes beyond close friends. It is a conglomerate friendship and relations of friends of friends. Technology has made vast and significant changes in social dynamics. It tends to both affect people in the society by either making them comfortable and uncomfortable thus affecting their self-esteem (Meadows, 2003, P. 23).

Electronic and Digital Media Industry

...Electronic and Digital Media Industry Mass communication (MC) today is reliant on technology. Based on chapter 1 of The Media of Mass Communication, MC is the technology-assisted transmission of messages to mass audiences. This definition of communication elaborates how technology seems to make life easier. Interpersonal communication is a face-to-face form of communication that has been widely used by people without technological assistance for years. In the old ages, mass media took place in concert halls using only the human voice; today people use microphones that allow them to send vocal messages to a larger audience. Print media has also taken a notch toward improvement with the help of the World Wide Web. Technology has enabled societies to broadcast messages throughout the world by using television, satellites, and the Internet. Print has had a strong impact on society. Mass media awareness started with the discovery of print media through books, newspapers, magazines, and so on. The way in which people’s lives have changed are based on the result of print’s improvement, it is what allowed people in the past to pass on several messages like basis for learning other languages through text.
