GlassFish, LAMP and Weblogic.

Just received notification about an exciting new webinar on GlassFish and LAMP is scheduled for May 13th. (Yes we like the 13th.. lucky for some). There are many developers using LAMP out there, but I also hear from enterprises that the issue soon becomes how to support and handle the integration issues around the LAMP components. For a view of how we have solved this issue be sure to sign up here.

While you are waiting for the webinar, you might be interested in this white paper on how GlassFish can be a great alternative to WebLogic. Give it a read especially if you are looking on how to migrate your non-ERP type applications to way lower TCO offering.

What is LAMP?

We have been having a lot of interesting internal debates about what to call our new offering in the LAMP space -- see release: Sun Microsystems Unveils Enterprise AMP Stack.

As we all know LAMP started off as being (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) but if I use Ruby am I suddenly not a LAMP developer am I a LAMR developer? Or if I use Apache, MySQL and PHP on Windows, am I a WAMP developer? And what do I call it if I use Progress, or Python, or ?

Internally we often call our Solaris stack SAMP, but again it just seems strange that for each variant we have another 4 letter acronym.

So what should we have called our offering?  Basically we are supporting Apache, MySQL and PHP on Linux, Solaris and Windows.
