In Medellín and elsewhere, Probendi and GlassFish help geo-reference emergencies

GlassFish seems pretty popular among ISVs (Software Vendors) and Probendi is yet another example of that. This company out of Bogotá, Colombia offers an emergency and security support system (Critical Governance™) providing real-time information based on its Knowledge Management System (KMS), Geographical Information System (GIS) and Decision Support System (DSS) modules. A mobile phone application available for Android, iPhone and Java ME devices complements the platform.
This software was built to deal with emergencies and architected using Java EE 6 with no additional framework and is now in production at half-a-dozen customers using GlassFish 3.0.1 which was selected to "take full advantage of the features and capabilities of a Java Enterprise application server". You'll find more details on this production story in our traditional detailled questionnaire.
Probendi Inc.'s Director, Daniele Di Salvo explains in this questionnaire that they have 80 web applications and that the feature they like best about GlassFish is " that when we need to do some changes on the server, we don't have to restart it". Hopefully Probendi will also find value in the new GlassFish 3.1 set of features (clustering, centralized admin, application versioning, etc.).
