GlassFish Localization

My work at Sun focuses on software product localization. I am a localization program manager, used to be involved in developer tools projects a lot. Recently, I have started to work on JES projects. One of them is Glassfish - a nice code name. I began my effort by looking at the history of this project.

GlassFish development was started back in 2005 as an open sourced application server project supporting Java EE platform. The first GlassFish product, GlassFish v.1 was released in May 2006, and GlassFish v.2 has just been released recently. The first release is English only. Now I am excited to have the opportunity to join my team in an effort to get GlassFish v.2 localized into 7 languages for the open source community.
