GlassFish Clustering in Under 10 Minutes
By John Clingan 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
