Deep Dive: Sun GlassFish Web Space Server 10.0

At the 2008 JavaOne Conference, Sun made an exciting announcement regarding a collaboration agreement it reached with the Liferay open portal community. Both companies agreed to share code and release products from a common codebase. Sun GlassFish Web Space Server is an outgrowth of that common codebase, bringing together features and technologies from Liferay as well as Sun's OpenPortal communities.

In this Deep Dive video, James Falkner, Sun's Product Architect for portal technologies, demonstrates many of the features that Sun GlassFish Web Space Server offers for administrators, developers, and end users. Along the way, he demonstrates some cool features such as hooking portlet events together graphically, and changing the theme for a portal page in Adobe Dreamweaver using Web Space Server's View Designer plugin.

There's so much functionality in the Web Space Server that it was difficult to fit James's demonstrations into one short video. So instead we offer multiple videos -- or a video in multiple parts. Watch it. I think you'll see that Sun GlassaFish Web Space Server 10.0 is a fun and highly functional product.
