GlassFish Clustering in Under 10 Minutes
By John Clingan-Oracle on Dec 06, 2008
As we add features to GlassFish over time, one characteristic we do not want to compromise is ease-of-use. With this screencast I wanted to show how easy it is to set up a GlassFish high availability cluster. While other clustering screencasts exist, I wanted to take a different approach. How long would it take, from download to deploying an app, to get a GlassFish high availability cluster up and running? This screencast does just that. While I could have gone faster - faster connection, eliminate narration, etc - I wanted to make it more typical and meaningful for viewers. Here's a summary of the timing:
- Download: 2 minutes and 30 seconds. I cover this time by describing bringing up a slide and describing the clustering architecture
- Installation and cluster setup: 4 minutes, 30 seconds.
- Verifying and testing cluster by deploying a sample application: 3 minutes
