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!

Project WebSynergy Stable Build 2: Now Available!

As you know, in May of this year, Sun and Liferay announced a partnership to jointly develop next generation enterprise portal technology.  The Sun portal team has since begun the rollout of Project WebSynergy, codename for the initiative to release a product based on this common technology.

The Project WebSynergy team is now proud to make its Stable Build 2 available for download!  This release represents a significant milestone for the project, incorporating a number of new features, improvements, and a general enhancements over the last stable build (which was made available in May @ JavaOne).

Some of the things to look for in SB2:

  • Release Stability and Cadence
  • The primary goal of this release was to establish regular builds (which you will start seeing regularly, not once every 2 months), get testing frameworks in place and automated (as soon as the public site, see below, is setup, automated test results will be posted as well), and establish basic hooks/frameworks in the Liferay community for future builds/releases to take advantage of.  As mentioned in my previous post, this is a Stable Build (as opposed to a Community Build or Commercial Release).

  • WSRP 2.0 Consumer Support & Admin Application

  • WSRP 2.0 Consumer support is now available.  In addition, a WSRP consumer administration application is available in WebSynergy that enables managing multiple WSRP Consumers. For more information, read the blog post.

  • Mirage/Journal

  • Liferay Portal has been modified to use the Mirage API. This API enables WebSynergy to use JCR-compliant repository.

  • Roller Blog Application

  • The Roller Blog app provides integration with Roller Weblogger version 4.0. Using this app, portal users can create and manage blogs on a Roller 4.0 server.

  • Simple API for Workflow

  • The Simple API for Workflow (SAW) feature is integrated into the Project WebSynergy SB 2 stable build. A sample Expense Report portlet provided with this feature showcases a typical enterprise Expense Report Application that involves human workflow. You can use SAW to connect to a business process engine such as the Java Composite Application Platform Suite provides the workflow functionality to the Expense Report portlet.

  • Presence

  • For more information on this feature, see this article on the Liferay wiki. In upcoming Project WebSynergy builds, new applications using this infrastructure will provide a more presence-aware Portal to end users.

  • Semantic

  • Core semantic processing libraries and utilities have been integrated into the portal. In the upcoming Project WebSynergy builds, the communities in the Liferay Portal Communities use this feature to provide a semantically rich experience to end users.

This build represents another in a series of binary releases of this project leading up to Sun's commercial release.  The product based on this project is also being renamed (Project WebSynergy is the internal codename), and we really don't want to have name confusion between the free-to-use, open source version and commercially supported version, so the external site presence (as described in my previous post) does not yet exist.  This should be resolved in the 14 days.

Note on GlassFish v3 - Project WebSynergy is available on GlassFish v2.  In the coming days, we expect to also make available a v3-based bundle based on GlassFish v3 TP2.
