GlassFish @ JavaPolis, and in the Aquarium



GlassFish has enjoyed a pretty nice coverage at the last JavaPolis conference (actually more than what was planned). It only had one dedicated session by Inderjeet Singh, but EJB 3, NetBeans and Java Studio sessions, Apache Derby database, AJAX, JSF 1.2 and even Rod Johnson's Spring talks mentioned Sun's Open Source Java EE 5 Application Server. We also had a good number of people coming to the booth for questions and demos. I couldn't attend the Dali talk (Oracle EJB 3 support in Eclipse), but here's another place where GlassFish could be mentioned (see this). I guess the message that the "Reference Implementation" is no longer some proof of concept piece of software (this changed years ago...), but rather a production-quality application server has come across nicely.

GlassFish is almost feature-complete. It has EJB 3 persistence support (via Oracle's TopLink Essentials), EJB 3 POJO support with web-tier dependency injection (something most others don't have yet). But GlassFish is not just another Open Source java application server, it also provides differentiators such as the nio-based Grizzly HTTP listener framework, the web services monitoring support, AJAX demos and blueprints, modular load-on-demand architecture, and more. You can start using GlassFish today and even get the tools productivity with that.

If you want to know more about GlassFish, the Aquarium (a group blog, a new feature in Roller 2.0) is a very good place to keep an eye on. If you have a screencast on using GlassFish (such as this one) or a technical article on how to integrate GlassFish with your favorite framework or technology (Spring, Hibernate, Tapestry, AspectJ, Struts/WebWork, JDO, iBatis, etc), Eduardo has a little something for you... Make sure you also file bugs and RFEs (need to be logged-in), they are treated as more important than the ones filed by the GlassFish team.

Pretty fascinating to watch a community grow before your eyes.

"... a group blog, a new feature in Roller 2.0 ..." I know this is not the place to complain about Roller but I hate Roller's permalink that doesn't change the title of the page, all bookmarked pages from roller's blog have the same title !

Yes, I was thinking the same not long ago. But that doesn't make me "hate" Roller ;-)

Ok, here's Dave Johnson's take on it:

in the <head> of my blog page, use this to use entry title if page is a single-entry page and weblog title otherwise.

<code> #if ($pageModel.getWeblogEntry())
&nbsp;&nbsp; <title>#showWebsiteTitle(): $pageModel.getWeblogEntry().title</ title>
#else
&nbsp;&nbsp; <title>#showWebsiteTitle(): #showWebsiteDescription()</title>
#end&nbsp; </code>

Also, JIRA issue filed.
Works great for me!

Hi there! I'm currently doing a senior project for my mater's degree and am conducting some research comparing STRUTS and Spring and their impact on extensibility. I would appreciate it if anyone who has had experience with either framework would fill out a questionnaire for me. It's at http://www.createsurvey.com/c/31128-0nVgEU/. Thanks!!
