Glen Smith has been kicking the tires of GlassFish to run his Groovyblogs portal for a while now. This Grails-powered application was developed in record time and has proven to run smoothly for over two years now.
Groovyblogs was recently enhanced to use OpenMQ and a message-oriented architecture with "significantly greater uptime, and much more scalable and pluggable deployment opportunities" as an immediate result. Earlier updates included the use of GlassFish v2's HTTP compression support (Glen started with GlassFish v1 back in 2007).
Glen didn't wait for GlassFish v3's optimized experience for scripting environment such as Groovy/Grails (Screencast, Download, Getting Started) but promises to do so after once he's done writing and reviewing "Grails in Action".
Read all about this story straight from Glen in this detailed questionnaire.
