GlassFish Roadmap slides posted

There's been some FUD around GlassFish since the Oracle acquisition closed in January (and in fact even before) and it was hard for the team to dispel it until now. The GlassFish Roadmap Community Update slides used during today's live presentation are now available.

In a nutshell, the v3.1 release will offer centralized admin, clustering and Coherence support in 2010. As the Open Source community is concerned nothing changes (license, contributions, governance). More details in the slides and in an upcoming FAQ.

All in all, excellent news if you ask me.

Comments:

Wait a second...if I'm reading this properly, then I can no longer use future versions of Glassfish Open Source (as I had been doing) to host commercial software. That's correct, right? So that leaves JBoss as (realistically) the only viable commercial-friendly open source application server?

No, you read this wrong. The open source story remains the same.
What makes you say this?

Granted, not authoritative, but see http://blog.eisele.net/2010/03/glassfish-product-roadmap-updates.html

Note in particular the part that says:

"The GlassFish will be available under the Oracle Technology Network Developer License and under a productive deployment license."

The OTN Developer License specifically prohibits deployment for commercial purposes.

Is this incorrect?

The OTN license is an evaluation license (not open source) for Oracle GlassFish Server. You can get the open source bits from glassfish.org

So we'll get clustering in GlassFish v3 (contrary to the scary prediction of http://blog.eisele.net/2010/02/glassfish-vs-weblogic-10-visions-for.html). So sweet, I can continue to promote GlassFish!
