Screencast #28: Simple Web Application using Eclipse and GlassFish v3 Prelude

GlassFish v3 Prelude is now available! Some of the cool features are:
  • Modularity using OSGi
  • Rapid deployment using retain session data across HTTP redeploys and deploy-on-save
  • Embeddability
  • Dynamic languages and frameworks
  • Faster start up time
  • Integrated NetBeans and Eclipse tooling
  • Comet and Cometd
This screencast shows how you can create a simple Web application using JSP and Servlets in Eclipse 3.4, deploy it directly on GlassFish v3, use rapid deployment, and debug the application.

The GlassFish plugin for Eclipse has many more features than demonstrated in this screencast and are explained here.

A complete list of GlassFish related screencasts is available here. Other screencasts published on this blog are available here.

Also see GlassFish v3 running using Equinox, Rails and Merb applications using GlassFish Gem, and Embeddable GlassFish.

Screencast #27: Simple Web Application using NetBeans 6.5 IDE and GlassFish v3 Prelude

GlassFish v3 Prelude is now available!

It contains a Java EE 5-based Web stack. A comprehensive tooling by NetBeans IDE allows to easily develop Web applications and deploy directly on GlassFish v Prelude. Rapid deployment feature of GlassFish allows to redeploy applications without losing session state. Using the deploy-on-save feature of NetBeans the complete development cycle is reduced to edit-save-refresh. There is no longer a need to wait for explicit deployment any more, cool isn't it ?

And you can even purchase enterprise support as well!

This screencast shows how you can create a simple Web application using JSP and Servlets in NetBeans IDE, deploy it directly on GlassFish v3 and then debug it.

Are you still doing the conventional edit-save-deploy-refresh conventional development cycle ? Use NetBeans and GlassFish together to liberate yourself :)

3 steps for successful GlassFish Deployment

There are 3 simple steps for a successful GlassFish enterprise deployment - Download, Register, Subscribe. This blog describes what and why of each step. It particularly highlights the several unique benefits available to you in each step.

Download - The first step for any successful enterprise deployment is to download GlassFish - the best open source Application Server (see What's the big deal about GlassFish ?). You can download, develop and deploy your applications on GlassFish completely FREE. GlassFish Download

The benefits that comes along with download are:

Register - After GlassFish is downloaded and installed, you can easily register your instance by providing an email address. You can register by following these instructions. GlassFish Register

 The registration gives you the following benefits (in addition to the ones available in Download):
  • Access to aggregate contents like tech tips, bugs fixed, latest news and promotions.

Subscribe - Once your application is deployed and you need quality support in maintaining it then it's strongly recommended to buy the subscription. You can purchase the subscription here. GlassFish Subscribe

Here are the unique benefits that comes along with subscription (in addition to the ones available in Register):
  • Ability to escalate bugs for an out of cycle patch or engineering attention
  • Low risk, tested fixes and features for mission critical deployments
  • Enterprise level production support SLA - Standard, Premium or Premium Plus. Ensures 4 hour response for any question for Standard and Live Transfer for Premium and Premium Plus.
  • Indemnification for both parties
  • Live person technical support
  • Proactive to Sun Alerts and Notifications
  • Access to Sun Knowledge Base

The benefits at different steps are also summarized here.

Sun provides support for GlassFish through our distribution Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 (SJSAS 9.1). So if you have already downloaded then go ahead and register. If you have already registered and ready for deployment then download SJSAS 9.1 and buy a subscription. And be confident of your enterprise applications!
