By arungupta on Mar 29, 2011
Point Debate is a social network company that stir up, engage and give voice to most diverse opinions. They started using GlassFish because it is only app server that is compliant with full Java EE 6 today.
The app uses JSF runtime with RichFaces component library for providing the user interface. EJBs are capturing the business functionality and JPA + MySQL + Ehcache are used for a scalable persistent architecture.
They love ease-of-development, community, and standards-based approach for GlassFish. They already plan to move to GlassFish 3.1 and use the clustering support. Make sure you read the PointDebate detailed questionnaire for further information on how GlassFish is used to serve their need.
