Embedding GlassFish Application Server v3 Prelude - Read All About it!
By pauldavies on Jun 15, 2009
Have you ever wanted to run GlassFish™ Application Server in embedded mode by typing java -jar glassfish-embedded-all.jar -p 8080?
Have you ever wanted to build and test an unpackaged application by typing mvn glassfish:run?
Have you ever wanted to develop an application that starts GlassFish Application Server and deploys another application to the server?
If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, check out the white paper A Guide to Embedding GlassFish Application Server v3 Prelude (Sun Online Account required).
This white paper explains how to obtain a distribution of GlassFish Application Server that developers, ISVs, and OEMs can embed in their applications. It also explains how to use embedded GlassFish Application Server to run applications in embedded Application Server and to develop applications in which Application Server is embedded.
Note - The application programming interfaces (APIs) that this white paper describes are for the v3 Prelude release only. Some of these APIs are changing between the v3 Prelude release and the final v3 release.
This white paper is for software developers and OEMs who are developing applications to run in embedded Application Server. The ability to program in the Java™ language is assumed.
