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.

Comments:

Worthless article - nothing in it tells me the real-life problem that they were trying to solve at Bauer.

Or at least I got bored after the first few lines of opaque jargon filled copy and stopped reading.

I've been in development for 10 years so I'm no n00b with a short attention span. I just love to hear about great technology like Java solving difficult real life problems. And I like to see this within the first few lines of reading.

An another thing, your pages on sun.com and elsewhere are far too busy with unrelated content.

hello Rob,
Sharing experience is not easy as different people has very different expectations. We're trying our best with this format and associated questionnaire (I hope you've read this bit). There's always room for improvement in both the content and the way it's presented.
cheers,
-Alexis, probably with even shorter attention span

Hi Rob. We are always interested in improving our content, but, after reading your note and looking again at the entry and questionnaire, I suspect you may just be interested in a different type of report.

It is not the intention of this series of entries to describe the details of the problem that the customers were solving, or the architecture they were using. We are trying to capture the technologies involved, what where the pain points, what things worked out, what helped them in their decision.
