GlassFish and MySQL: The Series

With more than 100 million downloads, MySQL is the world's most popular open-source database. MySQL's popularity is indicative of the growing adoption of open-source software. Developers are using open-source software because it offers them a reliable and low-cost alternative for developing their applications. This adoption trend extends to middleware too. For example, open-source servers are replacing proprietary servers in many enterprises. Case in point: GlassFish, an open-source, enterprise-quality, Java EE 5-compliant application server, enjoys significant popularity. With more than seven million downloads since its release in May 2005 and more than half a million downloads a month, GlassFish has a widespread and growing community of users.

RESTful Web Services and Comet

Comet is a programming technique that enables a server to push data to client browsers. The technique is often referred to as "reverse Ajax". RESTful web services are web services built using the Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style. RESTful web services have come into widespread use because they tend to be lighter weight than SOAP-based web services.

Java Technology Evangelist, Carol McDonald, and Sun Staff Writer Rick Palkovic have written an interesting article that shows how RESTful web services with Comet can be used to produce an application in which the actions of one user affect the pages seen by other users. See RESTful Web Services and Comet.
