OKAir and GlassFish powering International Airport
By alexismp on Nov 30, 2007
This new GlassFish-v2-in-production story takes us to a Czech International Airport. OK Air, a company specializing in airport software, has developed and deployed a Java EE 5 Airport Information System (AIS) using enterprise-grade GlassFish v2 to deliver valued and timely information to travelers and airport staff.
The software interacts with many external sources in different standard data formats and does so with various techniques varying from JMS to Web Services. For more information, Software architect Ota Kadlec answers the detailed full questionnaire. Many more details can be found there such as the use of SuSE as the deployment platform, the C MQ API, Tomahawk as the JSF component library, etc. Speaking of GlassFish, Ota says it best "Just try it!".
IATA, SITATEX, ATC, FIDS, AMMS, ICAO, ACI, EUROSTAT, FMTP, ... After all, maybe the number of acronyms in the Java world isn't all that exaggerated!
