Glassfish Goodness - Yes, Virginia, There's Still An AMP Stack!
By Eric Reid-ISV Engineering-Oracle on Feb 10, 2009
Today Sun is announcing our Glassfish Portfolio, and while this link and other blogs explain it much better than I ever could, I did want to clarify a few things about one piece of this Portfolio. Specifically, the newly-announced Sun Glassfish Web Stack....
Who Should Care?
Anyone who develops or uses applications atop AMP stacks.
What Does It Get Me?
The best performing, best integrated AMP stack for Solaris, OpenSolaris and Linux.
What Does It Have To Do With Glassfish?
No doubt, the Glassfish App Server is quite cool, a great example of Open Sourced-ness, and a very tight Application Server. And it's what we all think of when we hear the word 'Glassfish'. As of today, however, Glassfish means much more.
All that said, just keep these points in mind:
- Sun Glassfish Web Stack is simply a rename of what we were calling 'Web Stack'
- ...which, in turn, was the newer, improved version of what was before called 'CoolStack'
Remember, all the goodness, cool new name!
