GlassFish Administration Experience ...

Starting 19 January 2006, I will be writing about various features of GlassFish Administration. Whereas it is exciting to write about various goodies of GlassFish itself, I will be concentrating on the administration. This should cover the administration command line interface (asadmin), administration GUI, JMX infrastructure, configuration, logging and so on and so forth.

Administrative experience is one of the most significant features of GlassFish. It has a sophisticated command line interface with over 200 consistently defined commands. It also has a state-of-the-art Graphical User Interface. It can fully be managed programmatically using what are called Appserver Management Extensions (AMX). The Administrative infrastructure is based on JMX. The interaction with the Tiger-fame JConsole is smooth. GlassFish also contains a proprietary JSR 160 Connector that works over HTTP and HTTPS. Most of the configuration is stored in a text file in XML format and efforts are on to improve its editing experience. Monitoring is dynamically configurable and there is lots of monitoring data available should you suspect a particular subsystem to malfunction. Call-flow capability has improved the visibility of the internals. It integrates well with Solaris-10's SMF so that the domains get the restartability as specified by SMF.

I will be writing about all of the above. Hope it interests you ...
