Onyme, data meaning with GlassFish

Onyme is a small company from the north of France specializing in Natural language processing (NLP) to provide "Data Meaning" (their tagline).

Java EE 6 is what attracted them to GlassFish which they now use in production with version 3.0.1 (they plan to move to 3.1 soon). JSF 2.0 seems heavily used with multiple component suites.

You can find out more about the motivations of Onyme and their GlassFish usage in this detailed questionnaire. As you read this, you'll see how the multiple management features are clearly high on their list of favorite features.

GlassFish scales-up for Flemish newspaper poll

LodgOn and iVox both helped launch idealegemeente.nieuwsblad.be, a web site to build your "ideal community" in Flanders for some 140.000 citizens, all sharing their choices via the web and Facebook.

LodgOn's Johan Vos explains in the detailed questionnaire how this web site went to production in December 2009 using GlassFish v2.1.1 but also how GlassFish v3 is clearly in the radar for future deployments. He also comment that "(he is) very careful not to include a bunch of external jars that duplicate functionality that is already present in another form in the JavaSE or JavaEE stack".

This production deployment uses MySQL as the database, and Jersey (JAX-RS implementation) plays an important role in the overall architecture. As always, to understand what this user likes most about GlassFish but also what he would like to see improved read the questionnaire.

Bauer Systems - Online and paper media with GlassFish

Bauer

Bauer Systems, a GlassFish user has been in the business of Media production (both print and online) for more than 130 years. They use a broad range of technologies from Java EE 5 to NetBeans, Oracle, JavaDB (yes, two different databases for different requirements), EJBs, Web Services, JMS, and some SOA.

The development effort for the GlassFish-powered applications so far has roughly been 20 person years. Development happens on a broad range of platforms while production is on Linux. Documentation quality was one of the deciding factor for Bauer to go with GlassFish. They are yet another user of OpenMQ but also JBI (in the form of OpenESB), and probably the first user to call out the GlassFish logo and t-shirts as one of their favorite product feature!

As always, make sure you read the Full Questionnaire for GlassFish adoption by Bauer Systems for more details on all of the above.
