Internet is undergoing rapid change.
That is why we, a group of internet enthusiasts,
computer programmers and mathematicians
from Moscow State University, decided to concentrate
our effort on development of
advanced technologies powering the dynamic side of the Web.
We believe that rapid introduction of new high technologies is the only right way
to live in the continuosly developing and growing internet.
We named our main technological framework X-WARE. It incorporates our knowledge and experience
in high performance
web-oriented informational systems, computer linguistics, data structures and algorithms,
distributed databases and other topics. Among X-WARE features there are: Dynamic generation of web pages
Distributed data storage accessible with CORBA
Effective full text search with on-the-fly indexing
Reference integrity, HTML transformation and checking
Object-oriented content management system
High scalability in performance, load resistance and data storage size
Transactional version management
We support the open source philosophy. We intend to make most of our products open source.
We participate in PostgreSQL
open source DBMS development. The work on
GiST support in PostgreSQL is
done by X-WARE team. GiST allows to extend PostgreSQL performance in complicated queries
occuring in real world business information systems.
To demonstrate and test our technnology we developed several noncommercial projects, including
- Clone of APOD (Astronomy Picture Of the Day).
is a very popular astronomical web resource.
It provides a daily fascinating astronomical image
with the comments by professional astronomers,
created by Robert Nemirroff (MTU) and Jerry Bonnel (USRA) in 1995.
We rearranged this site. Powered by the X-WARE technology,
it provides now a full-text search, keywords search, similar articles grouping.
This project is translated also into russian and is
a part of AstroNet - popular russian astronomical portal.
- Moscow University Search Engine.
This full text search engine by XWare team provides the document search over
all Moscow State University Web sites.
Full text search all astronomical sites in Russia. This is our contribution
to growing astronomical community.
- OpenFTS (Open source Full Text Search) is an advanced
PostgreSQL-based search engine that provides
online indexing of data and relevance ranking for
database searching. Close integration with
database allows use of metadata to restrict search
results. OpenFTS is distributed under GPL2 license and
available for download from
(PostgreSQL mailing list archive).
Intensive growth of PostgreSQL users and developers communities leads
to the necessity to have convenient and effective interface
to the mailing lists, with browse and search capabilities.
We developed this interface by
putting all the PostgreSQL mailing lists archive into one database,
derived from X-WARE, which allowed to build a convenient high-performance
site with a powerful full-text search. The database
and search indexes are updated on-the-fly, immediately when a new
message is arrived.
Our commercial interests
XWare team has gained essential experience in developing large scale mission-critical industrial
internet clusters. We offer customized internet solutions for large commercial sites, portals,
search systems, database interfaces etc.
We offer customized solutions based on PostgreSQL for
Our team offers also consulting services and support in solving the problems arising during
development of large internet projects.
