GlassFish v3 Prelude
By pelegri on Nov 05, 2008
GlassFish v3 Prelude is the first of two GlassFish v3 pre-releases. This release proves the basic modular principles of the GlassFish v3 family, it is based on the Java EE 5 specifications and it is supported. GlassFish v3 Prelude does not support clustering nor state replication.
GlassFish v3 Prelude builds on top of the Apache Felix OSGi runtime, offers great extensibility, support for Rails and Grails, developer features (fast startup, retain sessions across redeploys, NetBeans and Eclipse tooling, ...), an embedded API, Comet support, a brand new IPS-based update center, RESTful web services, a preview of several Java EE 6 features, and much more.
GlassFish v3 Prelude was released on November 6th, 2008, in parallel with the evolution of the GlassFish v2 family. We strongly encourage users interested in the "v3" functionality to go directly to the latest version of the GlassFish 3 family. Users and customers interested in clustering and state replication should use GlassFish v2 until these features show up in GlassFish 3.1.
First Pre-Release of GFv3.
