GlassFish Portfolio --- Sun Opensource Collection

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.
