SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 IE 8, Firefox 3 None on this list None on this list 4 4 4 The FishCat open source program is great. It will result in a higher quality product in the end The installation defaults to c:\Glassfishv3\ on windows. This is not correct, the bugs involving spaces seem to be fixed, but this has not been updated.
The updatetool is written in python, so the GUI is not portable...
Installation does not work under my Linux Slackware.

Ubuntu 9.04 Firefox 3 Jersey, JSF 2.0, DWR, Vaadin this one: http://kenai.com/projects/puj/pages/Arena-dev 4 4 4 testing on the edge, several bugs came out.. specially regarding the security manager. I was forced to refactor parts of the systems to continue to test on Glassfish V3. I didn't check the documentation in details, only specific parts regarding my needs. The overall quality of the documentation seems very good, but I would take more attention to have a more reliable opinion about that.

The 4 rating is about the bugs, in general Glassfish is a very promising product as soon the major security bugs are gone.
Performance is very good, memory consumption is not that good. Glassfish consumed more then a gigabyte of RAM to execute simple applications, what makes me apprehensive about its workload under a heavy production system.

The community around Glassfish is outstanding, with skilled engineers available all the time and forums questions being answered faster and more friendly than the average for this kind of software.

Glassfish finished last year without much adoption, but today it is hard to find people criticizing as easy as they criticize before. Glassfish is growing in attention and adoption, it is time to promote it to a vip product inside SUN/Oracle.
4 hours/week Yes perhaps a test server where I can deploy my test application. A Hudson or other CI server where I can contribute with acceptance tests. A lot of small/mid size applications contributed by the community can be used to automatically test the new builds. Like: "survived the community applications" ;)

5 3 4 The team spent a great effort to fix several very complex issues with IWebMvc2 and checked another ones reported from Gmaps4JSF. Their work was right on target and fast. Everything works now. The update tool can be enhanced and it's clearly one of the selling points for me. 2 hours/week Yes The team did a great job overall and they have my praises. The selection process was the only bit that wasn't that smooth IMHO.

Ubuntu 9.04, Windows XP Professional, MacOS X Firefox 3 A new app developed using v3: Struts2, EJB 3 and JPA 2
Existing app tested for possible migration: Struts 1.3 (existing app), Tiles
Roller 4 5
I personally do not care much about internationalization - thus I didn't rate this one.

The documentation is really excellent - I have never seen an open source project with better documentation. Especially if one adds the community support and participation and support in mailing lists.
Very good command line support and excellent documentation. Also a vivid community.

Deployment could be improved in that all possible sun-xxx.xml entries would be settable via the admin console. Probably quite a task - but worthwhile.
4 hours/week Yes This is a great programme and even though I did not have enough time to participate, I think this is a big plus for GlassFish (the product) and us all as community.

For example I'd like to have ability to deploy my application that include issue directly to Glassfish hosted on community server without preparing test case.
This way everybody will have opportunity to analyze the application without much efforts
Will prepare complete list of the suggestions a little bit later.

5 4 3 Everything either worked right away or was fixed speedily. The documentation is fine once you get used to it, but it was still a work in progress. Evangelize it better!

I evaluated it from the perspective of a departmental app server--something that can be used for developing and delivering applications for a medium-size group of users and where ease of use and ease of development are more important than raw performance. (I am not saying it doesn't perform--it is doing great, but I didn't benchmark that.) It is so far above the competition (Tomcat, JBoss, etc.) that it is a mystery to me why it isn't more popular. Easy to use, very fast, good support for development (and not just deployment), supports all the new EE6 stuff that you need for maximum developer productivity.
4 hours/week Yes It was very helpful. Great support for issues, very active mailing list.

4 5 3 The docs and the community have always been where glassfish excels, well done for continuing that tradition. very glad to hear you've got a solid future.

PLEASE do something about the lack of Glassfish RPMs.
In this day and age, if I can't install something from a package, it's increasingly hard to deploy it.
2 hours/week Yes Can you do it a different time of year ? :)

I'm really busy at work every autumn, and could'nt do it justice this year.

5 5 4 Most of Glassfish v3 is in _rather_ good shape. My only problem so far is that, talking about localization, the translation of log levels / severities ("FINEST", "SEVERE", ...) does make things somewhat difficult. Not much to mention. Looks like there's a rather good release ahead for all of us. Now let's hope the best for the future of GF in light of the Sun/Oracle merger issue. ;) 8 hours/week or more Yes Nope. Leave it like it is, it's a pretty friendly and very productive environment. :>

Windows XP Professional, MacOS X Firefox 3, Safari 4.0 I focussed mainly on Java EE 5 / 6 (JMS, REST, EJB, JMX, JSF 2.0) and production relevant areas. I tested several applications from the "Rethinking Java EE Patterns" project: http://kenai.com/projects/javaee-patterns/. Furthermore we ported some real world, commercial projects, from GF v2.1 to GF v3. I also used GF v3 daily builds in Java EE 5/6 workshops / classes. It was tested by many attendees on different platforms in addition. 5 4 3 My FishCAT involvement was by far more time consuming, than last year. Glassfish V3 quality was dramatically improved in last 12 months and the bugs were much harder to find. This high quality really surprised me - even esoteric parts of the spec worked very well. Especially the Java EE 6 coverage (REST, EJB 3.1, CDI / Weld, JSF 2.0, JPA 2.0) is excellent.

The documentation is the best in open source space - but, of course, can be be still improved.

I actually don't like internationalized Software. English works perfectly for me. German translations are, however, funny. I (any many other developers) always prefer English over German. Standard terms like "deployment" sounds funny in German "Bereitstellung" :-).
The incremental deployment capabilities of GlassFish v3 are outstanding. Java EE 6 apps can be redeployed in few milliseconds - even the changes of method signatures are recognized correctly.

The admin console was always a highlight, now the monitoring data is also directly available. BTrace could become very useful for production, Glassfish v3 OSGi capabilities are also unique - it can run on Equinox or Felix. One of my personal highlights is the NetBeans integration - you get a whole Java EE 6 environment (IDE + server) in few minutes and about 3 clicks.

VisualVM plugin for Glassfish is not compatible with v3. Not all monitoring data is exposed via JMX. Clustering etc. is also important, but is planned for v3.1.
8 hours/week or more Yes Kudos to the engineering team and all participants for taking us so seriously. The response times and the high quality of answers was remarkable high. I got high quality answers to my issues and questions in few hours, sometimes even minutes. Some of my suggestions will even make into the FCS - you can really change the world being a FishCAT :-).
Special thanks to Judy - our community manager - the fast and reliable communication hub :-). I really enjoyed the FishCAT experience!
