Jenzabar: Running a school or college using Java EE 6 and GlassFish

Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, recently launched Jenzabar JX, a revolutionary new enterprise resource planning system built on open standards using Java EE 6 and GlassFish. Jenzabar JX gives institutions an extensible system with modern tools to successfully manage constituent relationships and meet the full spectrum of academic and administrative needs for today's technologically sophisticated students, faculty, and staff.

In developing a cost-effective solution to serve diverse institutions of higher education, Jenzabar needed an infrastructure for JX that was scalable and performed well in a wide variety of environments. In addition, with its legacy system, the company had experienced the pitfalls of supporting its own proprietary infrastructure, and resolved that JX would employ an open source infrastructure with standards compliance. Jenzabar identified the GlassFish application server and its supportive community as a solid base on which to build, enabling Jenzabar to focus its development energies on business logic for higher education. An added bonus, the embedded GlassFish server drives all integration testing within the JX product. Jenzabar customers are delighted with the direction of Jenzabar JX.

Laird Nelson (an architect of the project) presented at the GlassFish Community Event at JavaOne 2011 and shared their experience with GlassFish. The slides below provide more details:
