OSGi Application Development using GlassFish Server - New Whitepaper

You've seen tons of material related to GlassFish + OSGi on this blog. Most of the material was originally published on Sahoo's blog. Now Sahoo has published a new white paper "OSGi Application Development using GlassFish Server" providing a single place the details about GlassFish and OSGi. Specifically it covers the following topics:

  • OSGi Applications running in GlassFish Server
  • Hybrid (Java EE-enabled OSGi ) application bundles
  • Modular web applications
  • Building enterprise quality OSGi service using EJB technology
  • Shared/Standalone Persistence Unit

LOTD #14: New Whitepaper: GlassFish High Availability Reference Configurations for a Virtualized Environment

GlassFish v2 allows you to configure cluster of multiple nodes/instances to meet various availability requirements, from the highly scalable service availability configuration to the business-critical, 99.999% service-and-data availability configuration. A cluster can be deployed using different toplogies with a choice of service/data availability, in-Memory/HADB, co-located/non-colocated and other factors. This new white paper explains reference configurations on that can be used for deploying business services.

Understanding Security Token Service - New Whitepaper

Jiandong announced a new whitepaper: Building Trust in Web Services with Security Token Service. This papers explains how Security Token Service (STS) enable exchange of interoperable security tokens. It also explains how multiple STSs can be chained across security domains to realize Brokered Trust pattern. And then it provides a high-level architecture and the major components of the framework in Metro Web services stack for building a STS.

In an earlier entry, Jiandong explained how NetBeans WSIT module (part of Metro) can be used to build a STS. In a related entry, Shyam explained the extension points to implement STS according to a specific business requirement.

And this 26-page article provides a complete overview of how Metro provides an implementation of key WS-\* specifications.
