GlassFish Clustering in Under 10 Minutes

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

Note, the embedded video is via the Sun Learning Exchange. This video is also posted to YouTube.

Update: You can play these video's in full screen. On YouTube there is a "Watch in High Quality" link just under the video (to the right) as well.

Talk about quick and to the point !

Well done John,

How about some of the LB options to direct traffic into the cluster for the next one?

Mhassey, Thanks for the feedback. I plan to add in a load balancer setup screencast, and a third for setting up remote LB management. It's a matter of fitting them in to my rare spare time :-)

great video, a load balance demo would also be nice. Maybe even a JRuby cluster ?
