2008 is over and SailFin is getting ready to leave the station

My last post was exulting about JSR289 passing the vote way back in July. We have been moving along since then. I thought SailFin would be the first to pass the JSR289 compatibility tests. But Oracle made sure that they already passed the TCK by the time it was made public! And then we found that there were issues in the TCK that needed discussion with the Spec lead. Thanks to Mihir, we got past all of that and had a clean run in November.

The economic turmoil and U.S presidential election have taken their share of headline news. It has been a less sensational and productive year for SailFin community. Some major accomplishments:

  • Community membership crossed 200, with over 45 with developer status.
  • Found early adopters through the community. Great interest seen from companies building unified communications solutions and conferencing systems for enterprises and SMBs.
  • Ericsson has been a tremendous partner all along. Ericsson Service Development Studio 4.1 is an Eclipse based IDE that includes SailFin by default.
  • IPTV live field trials with GlassFish and SailFin with Sonaecom in Portugal. I am told some more such things are in progress.
The GA release of SailFin is planned January 2009. As we approach this big date, there will be many more informative blog entries on the performance, unique features, and the team behind SailFin.
