GlassFish V2: The start of something great

What a difference two weeks make. Two weeks ago I was pulling (what's left of) my hair out trying to get the T's crossed and the i's dotted on GlassFish before the Monday launch. Pre-and-post-launch I've have been talking to potential customers, the sales force, analysts and the press. The word is getting out and the feedback is extremely positive.

I can't help feel that this GlassFish launch is the start of something great. Yes, Sun has had an application server (in one form or another) for almost a decade. Yes, GlassFish V1 has been around for over a year - even in production. But it all seems to have come together with GlassFish V2. Grrreat performance. New cost-efficient subscriptions for support. Enterprise ready. Open source community. Fully Java EE 5 compatible. The value proposition is looking good.  Not to put ASCII in their HTML, but Gartner seems to agree.

As we, the community, move forward, I'll do my best to keep everyone abreast of GlassFish momentum. The message may not always come from The Clingan Zone, but I've got prolific friends :-)

Congrats on V2, John!
