GlassFish @ JavaMUG - Trip Report
By arungupta on Nov 16, 2008
Presented on GlassFish at Java MUG last week. The event is hosted at Sun's North Dallas Office. It was impressive to know that local Sun team is hosting 4 User Groups (MySQL, Solaris, and OpenSolaris other than the JUG) in a month.
The evening started around 6pm when the attendees started showing up for socializing over Pizza and Soda. The JUG started with a brief introduction by Eric Weibust - the JUG leader. The community leaders from Spring User Group, Dallas Rules Group, and SOA Users Group then gave an update in their user groups.
After the sponsor's pitch, I explained What/Why/How of GlassFish. The slides are available here. It was pretty exciting when 100% of attendees have heard about GlassFish. A few of them are using it for development as well and now we need to work on getting some production deployments there :)
The demos showed in the talk can be accessed at:
- Rapid Deployment using deploy-on-save for JSP/Servlets
- Rails develop/run/debug using NetBeans
- Secure, Reliable, Transactional, and .NET-interoperable Web service
