"Miles To Go" thanks GlassFish Community!
By arungupta on Feb 27, 2011
GlassFish 3.1 is just about a few hours away ... the bow has been placed!
This release is the countless hours of work put by the developers, testers, project/people management, docs, partners, and last but not the least, and the most important the active community users who gave us constant feedback. I certainly feel privileged to be with the team when we delivered the very first version of "Reference Implementation" back in 1999. And also enjoy the floor with most of the GlassFish team and the ability to have hallway/whiteboard discussions with them other than participating in the daily jokes ;-) I'm merely a spokesperson of all these brilliant folks and just blow the horn all around the world. With GlassFish 3.1 out the door, this is going to get much more exciting!
On the eve of GlassFish 3.1 launch, I thought of sharing how this blog has traveled around the world promoting Java EE and GlassFish.
