glassfish v2 and deployment
By hzhang on Sep 17, 2007
Glassfish v2 is released today! Aside from providing various support for the glassfish internal components (JBI etc), the main focus for deployment in v2 has been user experience:
Faster deployment: We have improved deployment performance in several ways, especially in the web redeployment area.
More diagnostic error messages: We now provide diagnostic error messages for the most common error use cases.
One highlight in v2 on the user experience is to address the windows locking problem. In v1, one complaint we often heard about is redeployment or undeployment failing due to windows locking. And Tim has written a quite useful tool to diagnose the cause of the file locking. In v2, we have taken a significant further step to address/alleviate this type of problem from the glassfish server side and we have heard great feedback about this!
