GlassFish scales and configures very quickly for Micello - the "indoor Google Maps" company

We all (at least majority of us) use some sort of maps to reach from one destination, say home, to another destination, say a shopping mall or a convention center. But once you've reached the mall then you switch to a different set of tools to navigate that is typically either a paper flyer or sign boards within the mall. fills that gaps by providing maps for any indoor locations like airport, shopping malls, convention centers, retail centers, and college campus.

Their application is built using "scalable stack" of GlassFish and MySQL, uses RESTful Web services, and has given them a 99.9% uptime in the past few months - no wonder its used to create indoor maps for 50 malls in Singapore. Listen all the details on Micello from Prakash in the video below:

Micello has been talked about at,, and mashable.

How are you using GlassFish today ?

Rails on GlassFish - "most performant of all", "simpler and just works", "blazing speed"

Here are some quotes about running Rails applications on GlassFish from user@jruby mailing list:

I find the glassfish gem to be the most performant of all -- and I don't need to war-up my app.

I also have some mongrel cluster stuff, but glassfish is simpler and just works.

Voila...blazing speed, can handle lots of traffic. Note that I am also cominging into apache from a dyndns name. So, whatever IP I have, I can go straight to execution on the glassfish gem and NO warring up! What could be easier deployment, or a faster execution?

It's running fantasticly and performing like nothing I've seen before :) Completely stable memory, no wirings or anything bad for 5 days now.. (with several ab/htperf stresstests).

It's always exciting to get good endorsements of our efforts in the GlassFish team :)
