Sun GlassFish Web Space Server 10.0: Now Available!

Web Space LogoSun GlassFish Web Space Server 10.0 has been released today [download].  It is Sun's next-generation portal server platform. It enables businesses large and small to pull together applications and content from a variety of Web-based and internal sources and present them as a unified, customizable portal on Web browsers, kiosks, and mobile devices.  It is part of a larger Portfolio of software being released today as part of the GlassFish Portfolio.

Web Space Server started out about a year ago with a partnership with Liferay Portal to join forces to develop the core portal in the Liferay community. Web Space Server is Sun's first product based on this effort and common code base. You may still run across instances of the term Project WebSynergy - this was Sun's internal codename for the project before it was released.

Standards such as JSR 168, JSR 286, JSR 170, and WSRP 2.0 provide a solid foundation on which to build a modern web 2.0 enterprise application platform, using lightweight web-oriented architectures, and powerful developer tools to create a rich ecosystem for developers, integrators, administrators, and now users to collaborate and innovate with.

A new user-oriented site webspace.dev.java.net  has been established.  This site will house information most useful to administrators and end users of Web Space Server, including download and documentation links, community support forums, email lists, wiki content, and other useful information.

New community builds and milestones of Web Space Server will continue to be released to deliver new features and fix bugs.  This release is marked 10.0 to indicate it is a (r)evolutionary step from previous portal efforts, such as Portal Server 7.2.

The WebSyner--err--Web Space team is proud to bring you this first release, and hope you will like it as much as we do!

Thanks. Question: is Websynergy milestone4 = final?

Dennis,

No, WebSynergy MS4 is not the final build. There have been several improvements/additions/bugfixes since then.

Will there be an Open Source version of GlassFish Web Space Server ?

It's clear that Sun GlassFish Web Space Server 10.0 is NOT a community build. Are we expecting any further community builds soon or should we fall back to the Liferay Community Builds?

Posted by Pius on February 12, 2009 at 03:55 AM PST #

Pius, there will be more community and milestone builds, just as there were leading up this 10.0 commercial release. We intend to keep the same cadence that we had prior to the commercial release. These community builds will continue to be based on Liferay 5.2.x.

Andreas, we are considering this. But as you know we are based on Liferay, which is already open source, and most of our additions are in the form of contributions and bugfixes to that, from several sun-led open source projects (portlet container, wsrp, ruon, etc), plus a couple of small changes. So the vast majority is open source already, in various places.
