SFR - Developer APIs, GlassFish-powered

If you're a Vodafone customer and have traveled to France, you've been using the SFR cellular network, the second largest in the country with 19 Million subscribers (almost 5 million 3G subscribers) and number one European non-historical telecom operator.

Project RED (Rich Enabler Distribution), the code name of the "SFR Developer Zone" Initiative (devzone.ateliersfr.fr), offers developer APIs to access the SFR core network features such as sending SMS, MMS, geo-localizing mobile devices, ... and has chosen to deploy on GlassFish in clustered mode and MySQL. The services have been live since last November (2008) with good feedback from the developers community.

This experience started with a prototype developed on Tomcat which was then industrialized on top of GlassFish. The clustering feature of the application server has been a crucial point to scale to the demand of the developers. OpenMQ is also part of the technical solution. Read all the details in this questionnaire.

Tune in and listen to the GlassFish @ RTL story

RTL is the #1 radio in France and millions of people wake up listening to the morning show every day. RTL now uses GlassFish for internal and external applications. The public website is at www.rtl.fr and it is conceived as an online continuation of the radio shows providing audio, news, and interaction between listeners and the radio show hosts.

The full questionnaire for this real-world deployment story has further details on the software architecture which includes a nice set of open source frameworks. Here's how RTL summarizes the values of GlassFish : "Simplicity, clustering built-in supervised with the console, really multiplatform, open source, supported by Sun.".
