    ▪    Monitoring Lead for GlassFish V3 - all my blogs on monitoring
    ▪    Startup performance improvement for GlassFish V2 - blog
    ▪    Load balancer Administration - Article & Blog
    ▪    N1 Service Provisioning System plugin for GlassFish - Article and a lot of blogs.
    ▪    Big-IP H/W LB integration with GlassFish - Article & Blog

I am very grateful for all the opportunities that Sun has provided to me. More importantly, I have made many good friends during my years at Sun and it has been a privilege to work with so many talented individuals and teams. They are the best in industry, its from them I learnt on how to be passionate and always be motivated to work even when things are not going our way. I will miss them all.

Provisioning with an existing installation of GlassFish V2

We have seen from other blogs with regards to how to manage the remote installations of Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 (productized version of GlassFish V2) using the N1SPS plugin for Application Server. In this blog I will show you how to identify and absorb an existing installation of GlassFish V2 on a remote machine and manage it with N1SPS plugin. This is particularly useful with GlassFish V2 which doesn't have a silent installer that could be used inline with N1SPS to do a remote installation. In order to get over this limitation, you need to either use the Sun Java System Application server 9.1 (Again the productized version of GlassFish V2) or do a manual install of the GlassFish V2 itself and then follow the instructions in this blog.

Provisioning GlassFish V2 with N1SPS

No matter how many efforts the team has put into making managing GlassFish v2 deployments easier, there will always be a point where some users (service providers or anyone else doing massive deployments) would like some extra help. This is where the N1 Service Provisioning System comes to the rescue. The idea is to help manage hundreds of hosts spread across many geographic locations by provisioning the software - describing it once, deploying it many times. Installing the bits, configuring the product (creating resources), and deploying applications to it can all be taken care of by N1 SPS. This same product can provision just about anything else your architecture requires - database, web servers, etc... This blog gives an overview of N1 Service Provisioning System (N1SPS) Plugin (version 6.0) for Sun Java System Application Server (Productized version of GlassFish V2). This has detailed instructions with some scenarios on how the Application Server plugin works.[Read More]

It also touches more advanced topics such as establishing a secure connection between the DAS (Domain Admin Server) and the web server.[Read More]
