In Medellín and elsewhere, Probendi and GlassFish help geo-reference emergencies

GlassFish seems pretty popular among ISVs (Software Vendors) and Probendi is yet another example of that. This company out of Bogotá, Colombia offers an emergency and security support system (Critical Governance™) providing real-time information based on its Knowledge Management System (KMS), Geographical Information System (GIS) and Decision Support System (DSS) modules. A mobile phone application available for Android, iPhone and Java ME devices complements the platform.

This software was built to deal with emergencies and architected using Java EE 6 with no additional framework and is now in production at half-a-dozen customers using GlassFish 3.0.1 which was selected to "take full advantage of the features and capabilities of a Java Enterprise application server". You'll find more details on this production story in our traditional detailled questionnaire.

Probendi Inc.'s Director, Daniele Di Salvo explains in this questionnaire that they have 80 web applications and that the feature they like best about GlassFish is " that when we need to do some changes on the server, we don't have to restart it". Hopefully Probendi will also find value in the new GlassFish 3.1 set of features (clustering, centralized admin, application versioning, etc.).

Reino develops a Web Based Application for Parking Management with GlassFish

Reino International, a division of Saltbush Parking Services, is the largest paid parking equipment and service provider in Australasia and the USA. Established in 1993, Reino International is an Australian owned and operated company with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, California, Milwaukee, Arkansas as well as being represented throughout Asia and Europe by a distributor network. Reino designs and manufactures parking meters, enforcement technologies and the management systems used to manage and enforce on-street and off-street parking for cities.

Reino decided to use GlassFish as their web based reporting application was based on Java EE 5 based technologies - JSF, JAX-WS and JPA - and the only complete application server which was capable of supporting these technologies at the time was GlassFish. Reino's application has now been in production over 18+ months.

To read through all of Reino's reasons why they chose GlassFish v2, see their full questionnaire here. Here's how Reino summarizes their reasons for using GlassFish; Noel O'Connor writes, "The admin console is very powerful and it is constantly improving. The web service test feature is exceptionally useful." and "We are very impressed with the amount of time and effort Sun has put into GlassFish and the progress that has been made."
