While I was away (as everyone else) here are the few things that caught my attention:
• My GlassFish article on JavaLobby made it into the top 10 most read of 2008. Nice. Top rated too :)
• Someone created mod_v8. Makes sense, but who cares? Performances is reported to be better vs. Rhino. Would love to see some numbers. Update: on a related note: some scripting language benchmarking numbers here.
• Messages on the French developpez.com online forum for GlassFish has now more threads than WebLogic (stats). Next up: WebSphere number of messages. The GlassFish forum started years after all others. Many people mention GlassFish in EJB, JSF, and other sub-forums.
• sherod made his TwitterFX client available. Still early days, rough edges, etc... but very functional. As the author puts it: "I started on the 9th of December, not knowing JavaFX - it's been about 1-3 hours a day through until now."
