GlasFish v3 Documentation Available From Update Tool
By pauldavies on Dec 11, 2009
While distributing documentation on the web has many advantages, it does require users always to have fast access to the web. The good news for users of GlasFish™ server v3 who don't always have fast access to the web is that the documentation for GlasFish v3 is available from Update Tool in the form of an Image Packaging System (IPS) package.
This package contains all the documentation that is developed specifically for GlasFish v3, but does not include other documentation, such as Message Queue documentation, that is included for convenience in the GlasFish v3 documentation collection on the docs.sun.comSM site. The content of the documentation in the package is identical to the content on the docs.sun.com site, as both versions are published from the same source.
We plan to update this package if we update the documentation on the docs.sun.com site. We haven't worked out all the details yet, but we aim to keep the two versions as consistent as possible.
