Last week I gave a presentation on GlassFish to the Connecticut Java User's Group. I wanted to answer a couple questions here that came up during the talk. Big thanks to the group for letting me come talk to them, and also thanks to Arun for letting me use his presentation.
One issue that came up was how GlassFish works with other frameworks, applications, etc., and I was asked about setting up GF as the servlet container with Apache as the web server for static content. The user was already using Apache web server in front of Tomcat and wanted to know how it would work with GF. The official docs one the topic are here, and the conversation can be followed on the GlassFish forum.
A related question was about the performance of GlassFish compared to Tomcat when used just as the servlet container with another web server in front. While I can't provide any official answer to this, the email thread can be followed (and continued!) on the forum page.
While talking about scripting support in GlassFish, I asked the group if there were other languages/frameworks that they were using besides the ones already supported. Someone asked about Perl with the Catalyst framework. I've passed along the info to the scripting team for their consideration. Please stay tuned to GlassFish Scripting for continuing information on scripting support.
Thanks again to the CT JUG for having me and for letting me plug my current project, Project SocialSite. I'll update this post with any more information as it comes in.
