South Indian Food & GlassFish

Here are some pictures of the food I've eaten so far:





Here are some of the characteristics of Thali (first 3 pictures):
  • Banana leaf is used as the base for serving the food - clean and green
  • A large variety of items are served, including the traditional sambar/rasam/rice/yogurt
  • Modular - Items are served in a pre-defined order.
Over the lunch table, we were talking how this correlates to GlassFish v3:
  • HK2 is the core kernel - clean (written from scratch) and light-weight (green)
  • GlassFish v3 is a container that can do the traditional JavaEE and much more such as JRuby, PHP & Phobos.
  • Modular - Appropriate containers are loaded only if they are required. For example Web container is loaded only if there are any web applications deployed. Similarly for JRuby, PHP & Phobos as well.
Do you see any other similarity ? :)

And finally the Dosa (making & the final product)


And even a Biryani on the plane too :)

Sambar/Dosa, Biryani & GlassFish

I'll be spending some time with partners in Bangalore office next week (Feb 25, 26). Then I'll be speaking at Sun Tech Days Hyderabad (Feb 27, 28) and finally coordinating GlassFish Day (Feb 29). Of course, my overarching theme is to talk about GlassFish. But these two cities are also known for their local cuisines.

For those who don't know, Hyderabad and Bangalore are metropolitan cities in two different states in southern portion of India. Other than more popularly known as the hubs of IT in India, they are also known for Sambar/Dosa and Biryani respectively. I'm certainly looking forward to feast on the local cuisines.

The GlassFish Day agenda is pretty compelling with interesting topics like High Availability and Clustering and Performance Tuning. And then there are talks by our partners on Java CAPS and NetBeans/GlassFish Tooling. We hope to share our knowledge with you and learn from your wisdom and experience. And there are a wider variety of GlassFish sessions in the Tech Days as listed here.

Anybody for Dosa or Biryani together ?

Any restaurant recommendations ?
