SDPY - Java EE 5 is 3 years old

Java EE 5 is 3 years old. GlassFish v1 will hit the same milestone in a few days.
Java EE 6 and GlassFish v3 are scheduled for the fall with an interim release of the app server at JavaOne next month.

SDPY - JavaEE 5, Java 5, ...

•   POJOs and ABAP (SAP now Java EE 5-certified) (2006)
I was asking who would be last ship a Java EE 5-certified product. So, IBM or JBoss?

•   Tiger is here! (2004)
Java SE 5 shipped four (!) years ago. Are you there yet?

SDPY - Geronimo, NetNewsWire, VirtualBox, Sailfin

Another SDPY (Same Day Previous Year)...

Geronimo 2.0 (Java EE 5) disponible (2007)
Hum, has it already been a year? Haven't heard much (if anything) since that. At least they were not 2+ years late to the Java EE 5 party.

Perfect Blog Reader (2004)
I'm using NetNewsWire nowadays and need to figure out how usable the online/mobile version really is (last time I tried it felt really really slow on a fast connection).

Sailfin milestone 1 (2007)
One year later, Sailfin is in alpha release and JSR 289 is finally final.

VMWare player 2.0, no thank you (2007)
Needless to say that I went to VirtualBox and never looked back.

SDPY - NetBeans 4.0, Java Kernel

August 22nd is often prolific on this blog it seems.

Is JavaBE justified? (2006)
Java 6 Update 10 is now in RC. I was quite skeptical of the ability to bring down the size of the download (people were talking about a 1Mb installer...). Two years later, the full installer is expected to be around 11Mb and less than 4Mb for the kernel installer. That's a pretty good result given how intertwined the JRE classes are and compared to AIR or even Silverlight (ok, Flash is still doing great in that respect).

NetBeans 4.0 beta is out! (2004)
NetBeans 4.0 was the start of the NetBeans re-birth. It brought a new ANT-based system, had full support for Java 5 (funny to read the comment about Eclipse also "supporting Java 5, except for annotations" ;-), a new windowing system, etc... Clearly Matisse, the profiler, the new editor infrastructure, the regularly enhanced support for Java EE development and the support for scripting languages made it only better over time. It did take four years though...

SDPY - BEA, Oracle, Java EE 5, Matisse, and GlassFish

A year ago, BEA was joining the Java EE 5 parade.
• Interesting one-year-old read given the BEA acquisition by Oracle (and thus the future of Oracle's appserver) and the progress GlassFish has made in 12 months compared to others.
• I've only been using GlassFish for about 2 years (in its current incarnation). Seems longer than that.
• Three years ago, I was hinting at what NetBeans Matisse could look like. It turned out to be a killer feature.

SDPY - NetBeans on a diet

Three years ago, I wrote a couple of blog entries ([1], [2]) about the impact of removing features from NetBeans (which was only available as a single bundle at the time) to bring it closer to java editors in memory consumption.

Nowadays, NetBeans comes in a variety of bundles, including some very lightweight ones such at the 26MB Java bundle, the 22 Ruby bundle, or even the 14MB C/C++ bundle. With JavaScript coming in 6.1 we might see even more bundles (although a JavaScript-only bundle wouldn't make a much sense IMO).

SDPY - Java Open Source

Il y a un an, Java passait au GPL. Depuis, pas de fork, plutôt une belle coopération avec RedHat.

SDPY - JPA

Two years ago, I was commenting on the JPA evolution. 24 months mater, Hibernate is still a very vibrant community, but interestingly enough it's not the default in any Java EE 5 application server (at least until JBoss 5 releases). Clearly developers do use JPA outside the container (for batch or Swing applications), BEA/SolarMetric donated openJPA, and WebSphere "Classic" is still not reported as supporting Java EE 5...

SDPY - SPECj and GlassFish

If you're following at all GlassFish, you probably know that it has performance results above commercial vendors. Just one year ago, we had high hopes we would dramatically improve the performance of v2 over the v1 results. And we did. Performance is up by 60%!

SDPY - GlassFish vs. Tomcat (reloaded)

This was certainly already an interesting comparison two years ago and still is now:
•  GlassFish vs. Tomcat
•  Automatability: Tomcat vs Glassfish
•  Switched
•  GlassFish 2 vs. Tomcat 6
•  GlassFish and Tomcat Comparison

GlassFish still has ways to go, but it has a plan.

SDPY - Client Riche

Il y a exactement deux ans déjà, j'écrivais ce billet de retour d'une présentation sur les clients riches par Valtech. Depuis, l'eau a coulé sous les ponts, c'est le moins qu'on puisse dire :
•  XAML est devenu WPF et se décline sous d'autres plate-formes avec Silverlight
•  JDNC a été pour partie intégré en partie dans Java 6 et Swing a désormais un framework et du binding (outillé avec NetBeans Matisse)
•  Après avoir tordu XML dans tous les sens avec JDNC, JavaFX Script a été annoncé (sans XML)
•  AIR (ex-Apollo) prend de l'ampleur mais toujours pas résolument open source et quoi qu'on en dise un concurrent à Java
•  XUL est toujours une techno de niche
•  GWT est une approche (trop?) révolutionnaire
•  Eclipse RCP et NetBeans Platform progressent chacun de leur coté avec les mêmes arguments (NetBeans est full Swing).
•  on utilise et on abuse d'AJAX à tous les étages
•  JSF continue son bonhomme de chemin avec l'intégration dans Java EE 5 de plus en plus utilisé et dans JBoss Seam
•  Google Gears promet de repousser encore un peu les limites du web

Pas simple de faire une présentation exhaustive sur le sujet, mais l'intérêt est toujours aussi grand.

SDPY - From JavaCast to JavaPosse

Well, a LOT has happened since the fall of the JavaCast. If you're into podcasts (what a better way to commute!) you need to listen to the JavaPosse. Show #141 and going strong!

SDPY - Il y a un an, Sun abandonnait Java...

Il y a un an, je commentais sur un article qui annonçait l'abandon pur et simple de Java par Sun (!).
Intéressant à relire en prenant en compte le choix de la GPLv2, la mise en Open Source totale depuis mai 2007, le projet IcedTea, le nouveau symbole de bourse, etc...

SDPY - Episode GlassFish

Il y a à peu près deux ans (déjà!), je présentais l'objectif de GlassFish. Nous voici maintenant à l'aube d'une version 2 intégrant un clustering complet et un pile web services performante, interopérable avec Microsoft .Net 3.0 (WCF) et conforme au WS-I BSP (Basic Secure Profile) 1.0.

Bien sûr l'actualité c'est aussi le record de performance SPEC annoncé hier qui place GlassFish tout simplement devant BEA, Oracle et les autres, mais aussi cet autre résultat basé exclusivement sur une pile Open Source. En matière de serveur d'application Java, il n'y a désormais plus à choisir entre Open Source et fonctions d'entreprise.

Coté contributions, au delà d'Oracle qui fournit l'implémentation de référence de JPA, Ericsson est le second acteur important contribuant à GlassFish dans le cadre du projet SailFin, serveur de communication SIP Open Source. Le nombre de contributeurs individuels est également en progression. Les plus méritants ont été récompensés en mai dernier. Le nombre de contributeurs "par emprunts" se porte bien lui aussi: JAX-WS dans Weblogic 10, Metro & JSF dans JBoss 5 pour ce citer que les plus significatifs.

Enfin, coté déploiements, http://blogs.sun.com/stories recense une partie des mises en production de GlassFish. Inutile de parler du nombre de refus (polis) essuyés pour une référence en ligne. Enfin, plusieurs clients français participent au programme beta pour GlassFish 2 qui débute ces jours-ci et d'autres n'attendent qu'une version finale pour passer en production.

SDPY - Maturing GlassFish, Sunrays

•  [Sun Jun 26 2005] Ultra 20 and silly use of SunRays
I use sunrays on a daily basis and I really like it. I think the recent Solaris/OpenSolaris improvements provides JavaOne attendees a good experience...

•  [Tue Jun 27 2006] GlassFish turns 1
So we'll have version 2 with full clustering and great performance two years after starting, ...
