GlassFish @ Manipal Institute of Technology, India - Go Campus Ambassadors!

Here is yet another (slightly dated) contribution by Vasudha Amrit on GlassFish, Campus Ambassador from Manipal Institue of Technology, India.

She arranged a GlassFish talk in her campus and one of the GlassFish team member delivered the talk (while on a personal visit :)! The blog report provide details. The event was a huge success with 482 attendees. Here is an excerpt from the blog:

we had to put up extra chairs all around the place and even then people kept coming, so much so that we had to send people back. Some people even volunteered to sit on the floor. There were a total of 482 students, HODs and faculties from four departments and the associate director ( phew!!!!! :P )attending the talk when we did a head count and that is not counting people who had gone back.

And some pictures (more in the original blog):


Thank you very much Vasudha for providing an opportunity to share the details about best open source application server! Thank you Sudhir for delivering the talk while on a personal visit!

GlassFish @ University of Essex and Frankfurt - Go Campus Ambassadors!

This blog highlights couple of contributions by Campus Ambassadors (CA) from University of Essex and Frankfurt towards GlassFish.

Jenya Kovalchuk (Campus Ambassador in the University of Essex, UK) gave a talk on GlassFish. The pre- and post-conditions of talk are really compelling:

Pre-condition: No one out of 25 present ever heard about GlassFish
Post-condition: Everyone is looking forward to put their hands on, how great it is! dear all, we are approaching labs where the software is already installed…

That means there are approx 15 more students who are now trying their hands on GlassFish :)

Igor Geier from University of Frankfurt developed a A MySQL GlassFish application. The application is a work-in-progress but it sure will show the ease-of-use of GlassFish and tight integration with NetBeans.

Thank you very much for talking about/using GlassFish!

GlassFish and MySQL Student Contest - Winners announced

GlassFish and MySQL student contest winners are announced!

Kolli Bharath from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology, India (review, project) and Tomas Augusto Muller, Universidade de Santa Cruz do Sul, Brazil (review, project) won the grand prize of $500 each. There are 7 second prize winners of $250 each.

Congratulations to all the winners!

Meet some of the contest participants here, here, here, and here.

There were lots of great entries and picking one was a tough decision. But luckily the process was simple and clearly defined for all the judges. Each submission was assigned numbers between 1-100 in 8 pre-defined criteria and then a winner was picked. Now, don't ask us about the total marks for each entry or the winning margin ;)

Thanks to all the judges for reviewing the entries!

Here are some guidelines I followed during the review:
  • I looked at the blog and project website, how do I get started ?
  • Is the project site well structured, with links to code, docs, etc ?
  • Is there an installation/user manual ?
  • Is the application a stereotype
  • Is testing (unit, integration, stress, reliability, performance and others) integral part of the project ?
  • Is it a simple JSP/Servlet application or any creative use of GlassFish ? For example, is the participant using Web services, Grizzly Comet, Rails, Grails, Admin console, Monitoring or any such features.
  • Any usability or functionality bugs filed during project development ?
  • How useful is the application in context ?
  • Any NetBeans- or Eclipse-GlassFish integration features used ?
So if you plan to participate in any contest in the future, keep these points in mind :)

If you are interested in advertising your contest entry on this blog, leave a comment on this blog!
