The image from the xkcb explains how meaningless is the 5-star rating system. Then Aaron proposed an alternative solution and is the one which we use. Every category of assets would have a few rating attributes
which would have a description and a value. So, here is an example, all the assets of the category games would have rating attributes such as:
those attributes can have values from 1-5 which will have guiding text to help the user decide how to rate the item. for instance, stability might have as 1 star the value “crashes often” and 5 star “rock solid”
During my Google Summer of Code 2013 project I had to implement the ratings feature.
I had to implement the ratings functionality in the bodega-server and to our client. That’s why I was silent about the ratings, I guess making a blog post with some raw json isn’t exciting So here is how the ratings look like in the bodega-client

Furthermore, we liked how SpringSource targets this application development simplicity for both on-premise and cloud deployment targets. Today I’m pleased to announce that we have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Zimbra from Yahoo. While Zimbra’s domain is different than that of SpringSource, there are severa...12.03.2010 SAP Three-Tier Shows Excellent Scaling on vSphere SAP Three-Tier Shows Excellent Scaling on vSphere There have been many tests published showing great performance of SAP software running on VMware vSphere in a two-tier configuration. Both the application server and database server are running on the same VM in a two-tier configuration which reflects how many customers run SAP solutions in small and mid size configurations. In larger configurations, it becomes necessary to split out the application server and database server onto separate systems. In order to demonstrate how SAP software scales in a three-tier environment running on vSphe...27.04.2010 VMforce and VMware’s “Open PaaS” Strategy VMforce and VMware’s “Open PaaS” Strategy Posted by Steve Herrod Chief Technology Officer It was almost 9 months ago that we acquired SpringSource, bringing VMware one of the most popular Java development frameworks, stewardship of the Apache Tomcat, Apache HTTP Server, Hyperic, Groovy and Grails open source communities, and a group of talented engineers focused on the efficient development of applications for the cloud-computing era. We’ve recently augmented this team with the acquisition of Rabbit Technologies, the company behind the popular open source cloud messaging technol...10.05.2010 EMC World 2010 - let's talk private cloud - live streaming EMC World 2010 - let's talk private cloud - live streaming [Executive summary: We'll be blogging about private cloud for the next three days here at EMC World 2010. Stuck at your desk? Follow along with EMC World 2010 live video from SiliconANGLE's #TheCube.] I'm here in Boston to attend EMC World 2010. The theme, plastered everywhere at the venue and across the city (that's a sign at the taxi stand at Logan Airport over to the right) is "The Journey to the Private Cloud Starts Now." Thousands of infrastructure geeks are here to get their EMC on, and I'll be co...12.05.2010 Exchange 2010 Scale-Up Performance on vSphere Exchange 2010 Scale-Up Performance on vSphere In order to provide some performance guidance for the new Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 on VMware vSphere 4, a series of tests were run in the VMware labs. The first set of these tests involved a single Mailbox VM that was scaled up from 1 vCPU to 8 vCPU with a range of memory sizes. This blog article will take a look at the results from these tests to understand how Exchange 2010 performs in a VM. Additional blog posts will look more closely at these 1 VM tests as well as another set of tests that used up to four m...19.05.2010 Google and VMware's "Open PaaS" Strategy Google and VMware's "Open PaaS" Strategy - Posted by Steve Herrod Chief Technology Officer Wow… it has been an incredibly exciting, err, Spring for VMware's SpringSource division. In early April, we announced the acquisition of Rabbit Technologies, leaders of the open source RabbitMQ products used by thousands of customers for highly scalable, and reliable application messaging. In late April, we announced VMforce, a partnership between VMware and Salesforce.com to build an enterprise Java cloud with access to the vast data and great application services offered by the Force.c...21.05.2010 Exchange 2010 Disk I/O on vSphere Exchange 2010 Disk I/O on vSphere In the first part of this series on Exchange 2010 on vSphere the focus was scale-up performance of a single Mailbox Server VM. The results showed performance was great across all points tested, ranging up to 8000 users. This article will take a look at disk I/O which is an important aspect of Exchange performance. Enhancements made to Exchange 2010 have resulted in a reduction in disk I/Os per second (IOPS) in comparison to previous versions. This reduction is reported by Microsoft to be as big as 70% in some cases. Exchange 2010 makes more efficient ...17.06.2010 Scale-Out Performance of Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server VMs on vSphere 4 Scale-Out Performance of Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server VMs on vSphere 4 This is the third part in a series of blog posts on Exchange 2010 performance on vSphere 4. In the first post, tests were done to show the scale-up performance of a single Mailbox Server VM hosting up to 8000 users. The second post was about how increasing the amount of RAM would reduce the number of IOPS, resulting in better performance. This article is about scale-out performance with multiple Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server VMs. For a variety of reasons, it often makes sense to have more than one Mailbox Server in a...13.07.2010 VMware vSphere 4.1: Advancing the Platform for Cloud Computing VMware vSphere 4.1: Advancing the Platform for Cloud Computing Posted by Steve Herrod Chief Technology Officer A number of our recent VMware blog posts have focused on the newer VMware technology areas... SpringSource, RabbitMQ, Gemstone, and the partnerships we're forming to deliver cloud-portable applications. With this blog post, I get to highlight vSphere and vCenter, VMware's largest engineering investment areas and the very foundation of our broader cloud computing story. Today we are announcing general availability of VMware vSphere 4.1, and I'd like to share a bit more about it fr...
