GlassFish presentation at Open Source India Week in Bangalore

OSIW logo

A technical developer track was organized in Bangalore as part of Open Source India Week (erstwhile LinuxAsia )
earlier this week and I presented a technical session on GlassFish. Some members in the audience wanted 
access to the slides and I have made them available here. 

It was an interactive presentation followed by a Q&A session. I have tried to record the questions, posed by the members in the audience, below. 

Comments:

Siva,

This is what I understood the question to be:
"given Sun's commercial application server (Sun Java System Application Server 9.x) shares the same source code as GlassFish project, how does Sun manage the schedule and roadmap of its commercial product?"

While the question was answered very well for the sustaining scenario, it is not so easy for the development version.

Thanks,
Sahoo

Sahoo: Agreed. I think the question was mostly asked from the commercial variant point of view.

Guys,

Congrats! It sounds like you gave a great presentation.

Sahoo,

I don't what is meant by the question remains unanswered for the development version. Can you provide some additional details?

Thanks,
Tom

Tom,

Yes, there were some very good discussions during the presentation. Here is the information you asked for:
Using an example:
Production version of SJSAS that is available today is 9.1UR1. The version that is being developed is 9.1.1. SJSAS 9.1.1 shares the same code base as GlassFish v2.1. Until GlassFish v2.1 is released, SJSAS 9.1.1 can't be released. Since, GlassFish v2.1 is developed in open source, it is not \*entirely\* controlled by Sun. How does Sun then come up with a road map (including feature set based on customer feedback) for 9.1.1 and commit to a schedule that its customers can rely on?

Thanks,
Sahoo
