Logicstyle, an ISV based in Brazil, helped EGESA Engineering, one of the largest construction companies in Brazil, to avoid "framework explosion" by choosing Java EE 6. With 80% capability built in the stack, they needed only Wicket and Jasper Reports for building their entire applications in a short duration of 6 months.
The application serves about 190 use cases, has about 300 entities, integrates with other enterprise systems, and still feels "light-weight" for development and deployment.
Some of the Java EE 6-exclusive features such as CDI, no-interface session beans, and Asynchronous EJBs are used for a simplified development experience. The fast startup time of GlassFish improves developer productivity a lot and web-based admin console and CLI tools are used extensively.
Make sure you read the EGESA detailed questionnaire for further information on how Java EE 6, GlassFish, and NetBeans is used to solve their business need.
