GlassFish 3.1: From Installation to Running Application in a Cluster
By anilam on Feb 28, 2011
Centralized Administration is one of the main theme of GlassFish 3.1 With this in mind, Admin Console also enables GlassFish user to create Nodes for remote machine, create remote instances for a cluster, start the cluster, deploy and finally test out the application running on a cluster, all within the console.
Joe has a great blog about using SSH to manage instance lifecycle and I have created a screencast to show you how to setup the remote machine with the setup-ssh and create a GlassFish install image with the install-node command. Once this is done, you can use Admin Console to perform any of the task listed above.
The following screencast starts from downloading the GlassFish 3.1 bits from http://glassfish.java.net/downloads/3.1 to running hello.war on a cluster, all within less than 12 min.
