jHome Testimonial at GlassFish Community Event, JavaOne 2012


jHome Automation, a Duke Choice Award 2011 winner, is a complete platform for home automation that allows you to control your home via internet, phone, and television. It also allows you to extend to devices that can be built yourself or bought as pre-assembled kits.

Vinicius Senger, founder of GlobalCode, the company behind the platform, presented at the GlassFish Community Event at JavaOne 2012 and shared how they used Java EE for building the infrastructure. They rely upon EJBs and REST APIs to provide home automation.

They like fast deployment times, CLI interface, rapid pace of evolution, and lightweight container. This is a "dream application server" for them which is very reliable in production. Other than jHome, GlobalCode uses GlassFish for consulting and training as well. They also see the trend in Brazil where customers are moving from JBoss -> GlassFish.

Dont' forget to watch the complete video for a fun demo of the project. I particularly like the coffee scheduler using EJBs. What is your favorite ?

Parleys Testimonial at GlassFish Community Event, JavaOne 2012


Parleys.com is an e-learning platform that provide a unique experience of online and offline viewing presentations, with integrated movies and chaptering, from the top notch developer conferences and about 40 JUGs all around the world.

Stephan Janssen (the Devoxx man and Parleys webmaster) presented at the GlassFish Community Event at JavaOne 2012 and shared why they moved from Tomcat to GlassFish. The move paid off as GlassFish was able to handle 2000 concurrent users very easily. Now they are also running Devoxx CFP and registration on this updated infrastructure. The GlassFish clustering, the asadmin CLI, application versioning, and JMS implementation are some of the features that made them a happy user.

Recently they migrated their application from Spring to Java EE 6. This allows them to stay away from getting locked into a proprietary framework and also avoid 40MB WAR file deployments. Stateless application, JAX-RS, MongoDB, and Elastic Search is their magical forumla for success there.

More details about their infrastructure is available here.

LodgON: Feedback from GlassFish Community Event at JavaOne 2011


LodgON focuses on Java software for enabling communities. Their success story of DaliCMS (now DaliCore) was one of the first ones to be published on this blog. And their stories of iVOX, fun around Belgian and Dutch elections, and recently Mollom is a good proof that they are one of the first adopters of GlassFish and continue to use it for all these years.

Johan Vos, CTO of LodgON, presented at the GlassFish Community Event at JavaOne 2011 and shared what they love about GlassFish. The grizzly kernel performance which can handle 15,000 requests/second, Jersey client for communicating with RESTful Web services, horizontal scalability, and the open source nature are some factors.
