zembly

I have been working hard on zembly that began "perpetual beta" today. At zembly, we are trying to provide a service to easily create social network applications that run on social networking sites like Facebook and Meebo as well as hosting widgets.

One of our focal points is making invoking Restful services easy. There are several difficult (not necessarily in terms of technology) issues to deal with when consuming restful services including API key management, and perhaps one of the most challenging finding and determining relevant data providers.

We have also tried to remove the distinction of code and deployment space by developing and "deploying" applications in the browser. This is a similar model to how blogs or wikis have taken over what in the past was the tedious process of editing and uploading html and other content.

If you are interested in taking a look at zembly, please visit the site. This is currently in private beta but there are some invitations available :)

This sounds great Chris, lots of fun. I like the way there is no mention of Sun on the home page :-)

Good job, my early-access-EA password still works:-)

GlassFish works as expected?

I'd like to see you publish the architecture and deployment diagrams for zembly. I am sure many folks would like to see how you are using MySQL, Solaris 10, GlassFish, JavaScript, REST, WADL, jMaki, etc. If there voices that claim that Sun can't do web 2.0, they should take a closer look.
