Topgifter has recently taken a step forward to reach its users through social networking.

This way, your friends can see what you comment-it posts on your Facebook wall or you can also comment using Yahoo,AOL,Hotmail.And it guides the other users about the gift we display and helps them decide the p’s an q’s of the gift idea.
“The motion is passed to open the floor for discussion” ;)
TopGifter.com uses SOLR for its search backend. We use Amazon EC2, S3 to host our inventory. We use a combination of Java, php for topgifter.com site. To minimize server expenditures, I thought of leveraging Google App Engine. So, started experimenting with php using Quercus framework. Though I got most of the pages working fine, some external url’s are failing with a invalid string exception. I thought of modifying com.caucho.quercus.servlet.GoogleQuercusServlet in resin.jar , but could not get hold of source for resin.jar. As always, because of time constraints, could not get to the bottom of the problem.
