GlassFish: On a mission to please developers
Since its launch in 2005, GlassFish has come a long way, with an estimated 5 million downloads a year and a thriving community. While continuing to deliver a compact and high-fidelity Java EE Application server, GlassFish v2 has expanded to deliver production quality and performance (Project Grizzly), clustering, support for scripting ((AJAX, Ruby on Rails), high availability, Comet, SIP and interoperable web services. You no longer need to chose between open source, support for fast development cycles and enterprise features and performance. Now we're in the middle of moving to v3, an OSGi based modular and light weight architecture, aligned with the Java EE 6. What's next? You tell us! You help us!<br><br> This session will cover GlassFish v2, its clustering capabilities, Metro web services stack with .Net interoperability, Web tier (Grizzly, Comet, jMaki, ...), tools support, and administration features. It will then get into ongoing work for GlassFish v3. Finally it will give an overview of the much broader GlassFish community with telco, identity, directory, MQ, integration, database, social, and other software.
