SJS AS 9.1 (GF v2) - Public Release

GlassFish v2 was released September 17th, 2007, 16 months after the release of GlassFish v1. The informal motto for the release is

You don't need to choose between open source and enterprise features,
you can have both

This release replaces GlassFish v1 U1; all users of GFv1 are encouraged to switch to this release. See Overview of GFv2.

This was a very important release for the GlassFish Server as it was targeted to all levels of deployments. The functionality in the release covered the earlier "Sun Java System Application Server 8.2", including the 5-9's availability, through HADB. The release was covered extensively; a good overview of the release is available at GFv2 Launch Roundup [day 1], [day 2], [day 3], [day 4], [day 5] and [day 6].

The release was made available through Java.Net and Sun.Com. It's a free Right-to-Use release, based on the standard GlassFish Enterprise Support Model Commercial users of earlier releases should look at SJS AS 9.1 Patches.

The Sun distribution of GlassFish v1 U1 is Sun Java System Application Server 9.0 U1 and there is full commercial support for it; see GFv1 Overview.

The Java.Net distribution of this release is still available at GFv1 UR1 b14. I can't find a public link to the corresponding build at Sun.Com.

SJS AS 9.0 (GF v1) - Public Release

GlassFish v1 was released at JavaOne 2006, May 2006, a year after announcing the project. GF v1 is based on the same code base as the JavaEE 5 Reference Implementation; the RI is a specific snapshot in time of GF that is provided by the JavaEE 5 Spec Lead (Sun) to the JCP, and thus GF v1 was the first AppServer that was JavaEE 5 compliant. GFv1, like later versions, was in the different JavaEE 5-based SDKs available from Sun (download page).

GlassFish v1 builds on earlier versions of Sun's AppServers, and also includes Oracle's contribution of TopLink Essentials to provide the JPA 1.0 implementation. It is Open Source and fully Free Right-to-Use. GF v1 does have some of the enterprise features of GF v2, like cluster support, but it is nevertheless a very useful release in production as shown in the early testimonials in our Adoption Stories.

The Sun distribution of GlassFish v1 is Sun Java System Application Server 9.0 and there is full commercial support for it; see GFv1 Overview.

The Java.Net distribution of this release is still available at GFv1 b48. I can't find a public link to the corresponding build at Sun.Com.

The latest public release of the GF v1 branch is GlassFish v1 U1 but we encourage new users to start directly with the latest GlassFish v2 public release. See Overview of GFv1.

Release Overview

Description
Major Release, GFv1.

Release Date
May 04, 2006

Status
OBSOLETE. Replaced by GlassFish v1 U1.

Overview of SJS AS 9.0 (GF v1) Releases

GlassFish v1 is Sun's first Open Source release of Sun's App Server; the corresponding Sun branded distribution is Sun Java System Application Server 9.0, reflecting many earlier, closed-source, releases of ancestors of this code base. The original release was aligned with the final release of Java EE 5.

All patches are cumulative, i.e. fixes are accumulated in subsequent releases and the last digit in the release number often, but not always, matches its name; e.g. -01 is "Patch 1", but note that -05 is "Patch 4"!

The "No-Cost" term denotes a free release, while the "Restricted" term denotes one only available through the for-fee subscription service, see Support Overview and How to Install a Patch Screencast

The releases and patches so far are:

SJS AS 9.0 (No-Cost - May 2006)
SJS AS 9.0 U1 (No-Cost - Oct 06)
SJS AS 9.0 U1 Patch 1 (Restricted - Dec 14, 2006)
SJS AS 9.0 U1 Patch 2 (Restricted - Jan 25, 2007)
SJS AS 9.0 U1 Patch 3 (Restricted - Mar 22, 2007)
SJS AS 9.0 U1 Patch 4 (Restricted - Oct 25, 2007)
SJS AS 9.0 U1 Patch 5 (Restricted - Sep 15, 2008)

Note: Most customers should consider switching to the GlassFish v2-based releases (SJS AS 9.1) as they have improvements in functionality, reliability and performance.

Note: Many of the links above are forward links to entries that I will publish in the next day or two.
