The Release Notes describe Enterprise Server v3 Preview, the Quick Start Guide helps you get started quickly, and the many other guides help you make the most of Enterprise Server and its impressive capabilities. Of special note are two tutorials: First Cup: An Introduction to the Java EE Platform and Java EE 6 Tutorial, Volume I. These documents provide beginner's guides to developing enterprise applications for Enterprise Server and include working examples and instructions for creating applications with Java EE 6 technologies.
As always, your suggestions and participation are needed. Review the Preview documentation and submit your comments using the Documentation Comments wiki. Also contact the documentation team directly using the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list. We'd love to hear from you.

When I enlisted to work on the release notes for the Sun
GlassFish Portfolio (the day before launch!), I had no idea what
GlassFish Portfolio was. A suite? A platform? A figment of marketing
imagination? The short answer---Sun GlassFish Portfolio is a set of Sun
opensource components that provides the foundation to develop and
deploy Web and enterprise application. Okay, not so short.
I watched some videos and clicked around some web pages, and what I think is important about this announcement is (a) the components are open-source, (b) customers can choose only those pieces they want, and (c) the pricing model. Cheaper than our competitors, but not free. Ah. Maybe this is how we make money on opensource products.
The full scoop is here: Sun GlassFish Portfolio

- Reviewing the guides, flagging errors and providing suggestions for improvement.
- Performing procedures and examples, verifying their accuracy and completeness.
- Testing the online help, cross-checking it against the GUI and identifying places where explanations were unclear or information was missing.
- Reviewing the man pages, testing commands and verifying the correctness and completeness of the content.
This was the first round of FishCAT, and as with any new thing there's always room for improvement. We're thinking about that on the docs team, and would love to hear your thoughts as well. What worked and what didn't for FishCAT doc testing and review? What would you like to see done differently next time around? Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated. Just leave a comment on this blog or send an e-mail to the docs team. And thanks again for a job very well done.
