Random (but useful) News - 2010/11/11

GlassFish Podcast on Play! to celebrate their 1.1 release and their GlassFish container.
• First patch release for GlassFish 3.0.1. This is for paying Oracle GlassFish Server customers. Others will get the fixes as part of 3.1.
• Details on CDI/Weld in the upcoming GlassFish 3.1 release. Hoping memory and performance issues are all behind us.
Oracle JVM strategy clarification. Best quote: "We estimate that the contribution of code from JRockit into OpenJDK will be one of the largest - if not the largest - single contributions to the project since its inception."
• Get The Facts: MySQL Licensing and Pricing. Community Edition still free+GPL+InnoDB.
JDK 7 Support in NetBeans IDE 7.0. Ok, when do I find the time to try this all out?

GlassFish , Kenai, and HotSpot under the Oracle Sun

It's been just over a week since Oracle held its post-acquisition stategy webcast and we've already seen some fast reactions and comments from Oracle on several topics :

• Projects hosted on Kenai will preserve their infrastructure and be moved to java.net (the best of both worlds if you ask me). See Ted Farrell's post for the details.

GlassFish has seen an interesting set of reactions most of which worried about the wording used during the launch event. Mike Lehmann, WebLogic PM discusses here and there the situation and the likelihood of GlassFish v3 getting HA/Clustering capabilities in the near future. That's Mike's 1st post on TSS btw! I think that means he cares about GlassFish ;)

• On the JVM side, people have been asking question about HotSpot vs. JRockit and Henrik Ståhl, JRockit PM offered a first insight into what it would mean to have a combined product in the long run (also covers OpenJDK).

Overall, it's great to see Oracle reacting quickly to the community's concerns and I think one should judge the work of the combined teams (Sun and Oracle could not talk about future plans before January 27th) on the roadmaps and the execution. Remember, the proof of the pudding is in the roadmap!

New Sun processor + new VM optimization = Great performance increase

Now, it's not just GlassFish at Sun that's breaking performance records. My friends from Sun's Java performance team are also doing wonderful things with the JVM on the newly released Niagara 2 (UltraSPARC T2) CPU. Congratulation guys!

Maybe it's time for a new GlassFish benchmark on this newer Java 6 VM? Too bad BEA can't use Java 6 ;-)
