Updated Links to Previous "Installing a GlassFish Patch"

Last year Yael did a screencast that I reported in Installing a GlassFish Patch, an early entry in this blog. I recently noticed that the links provided in there no longer works; I suspect a change in mediacast but I didn't see the problem in a quick pass. Until when I can go make the old entry work, you can go directly to the entries as follows:

Introduction
• How to Buy a Subscription Online
• How to Contact Sun Oline
• How to get Access to Patches
• How to Request Service Online

Caveat: These instructions represent the status of last year. I'll talk with Yael and the support team about how to get newer screencasts / slides for these tasks.

Caveat: I'm testing this entry on two different browsers, both on MacOS X. On Safari the links above work all the time. On FireFox 3, I need to reload the link. Sorry, don't have time to chase it up; specially since the presentation needs a content refresh.

Installing a GlassFish Patch - a Screencast

Added (on November 13th, 2008) - The links below no longer work. Check this Updated Entry for a workaround.

Yael has put together a screencast that shows how to get GlassFish Enterprise Support (see my previous post). The screencast covers the different portions of the experience, from buying subscription online to contacting Sun to installing the patches.

You probably want to start at the Top Page and use the left menu to navigate through the different sections. The top page starts with the introduction but give it a few sections to get started if you are in a slow connection.

Introduction
• How to Buy Subscription Online
• How to Contact Sun Online
• How to get Access to Patches
• How to Request Service Online

Note: This is Yael's first screencast and I also did some editing to the configuration files while posting them here, so let us know if you see any issues and/or feedback and we will try to fix them. From where I'm at now (an internet cafe with slow connection), I already see:

• You should wait a few seconds for the image to get started in each segment
• Stop/Pause/Resume is either flakey or not working
