Overview of SJS AS 9.1 (GF v2)

GlassFish v2 is Sun's second Open Source release of Sun's App Server, after GF v1 (SJS AS 9.0). The Sun branded distribution for GFv2 is Sun Java System Application Server 9.1.

GlassFish v2 includes a number of releases. Major releases use the "dot" terminology, starting with "2.0", then going to "2.1", etc. Minor public releases add a "U" for "Update Release".

All public releases also have an accompanying commercial, for-fee releases, but there are also sustaining releases only available thorugh our Enterprise Support for GlassFish - also see How to Install a Patch Screencast.

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. The "No-Cost" term denotes a free release, while the "Restricted" term denotes a commercial release.

The current releases are:
