Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2 has just been released and is ready to download. Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2 improves upon its ease-of use features, flexibility and improved developer productivity with several enhancements. Do you want an application server that's both state-of-the-art and production-ready? Johan Vos, CTO at LodgON, says GlassFish is his favorite application server because "GlassFish contains the most advanced, state-of-the art technology that is seen in similar products a few years later and the quality of GlassFish is very high, the software is ready to be used in production." Here are the highlights of the Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2 release:
- Improved console startup time over previous versions of Oracle GlassFish Server.
- Enhanced configuration of Java Message Service (JMS) clusters for fault tolerance and failover capabilities.
- Easier Load Balancer configuration for faster throughput and reduced latenc.
- Enhanced security with SSL Encrypted traffic between the Domain Administration Server and remote instances.
- Support for the WebSocket Protocol RFC 6445, enabling bi-directional communication between a client and server, adding a web-origin based security model for browsers .
- New DCOM support. Windows users now have the flexibility to administer Glassfish clusters and instances remotely using SSH or DCOM.
- New Support for non-Multicast clustering. GlassFish High-Availability clustering is now possible in environments where multicast is disabled.
- Improved EclipseLink integration to enable data binding with JAX-WS. EclipseLink integration provides TopLink Grid support for using Coherence as a 2nd level data cache.
