Sorry, not an idea but a question! Please could you tell me what system Archie runs on and how it was built? I would like to build a similar database. Many thanks.
Archie does very many things , and its technology is quite old in places. So whether you could learn anything of value really depends on what you want to do. But basically Archie is a “Web application programmed in Java EE.
Running on JBoss/Wildfly application server
Database: MS SQL Server”
