Hey, this is cheating, almost at the same level as sponsoring positive review writers. Cheap marketing, please call it off.

From the ad: Try these new technologies and blog about your experience using GlassFish in production deployment. We would like to know how GlassFish's reliability, performance, manageability, ease of use, and new features address your needs. You may also suggest new feature enhancements for the upcoming GlassFish V3 release. Please remember to mention the download location of GlassFish in your blog. It didn't say that it had to be a positive blog, just a honest review. Your comment assumes that it needs to be positive, which isn't a requirement - just honest evaluation. We're confident that when you really give our product a full, honest look, you'll like what you see, but that's not the purpose of this promotion.

I don't view this as "cheating" at all. It's a way to get people to see just how good Glassfish has become who might not otherwise take the time to do it. I've been a Glassfish/SJSAS user for several years now. The only knock on it that I can say still holds water, is that it isn't as widely used as it could be. Anything that Sun can do to get the word out is fine by me and certainly there is no harm in offering a prize like this.
