GlassFish V3 technology preview available
By Tim Quinn-Oracle on May 07, 2007
Preliminary work has already started on GlassFish V3. Some of the main focus areas are:
- to compose V3 as a set of modules which are dynamically activated as needed,
- to build V3 so it is extensible to new types of containers, modules, etc., and
- to allow V3 to be embedded in other code.
Although I will become much more involved in V3 very soon, I have had a chance already to see some of the work that has been done so far. Jerome and Kohsuke have written up some notes already, Jerome has blogged about V3, and we have made a technology preview of V3 available for download.
Naturally, at such an early stage this is not ready for production deployments, but for example you can deploy and run php and JRuby apps as well as web apps.
