Gerald started to learn more about GlassFish when the looked to replace their existing Application Server, Orion ( "our situation was very similar to the Wotif guys"). One of the reasons they chose GlassFish was, as Gerald Gierer puts it, "The application server had to be well supported and well documented. It also had to have a great track record and be up to date in terms of the latest Java EE specifications.... The server also had to be high quality, free for development purposes and (preferably) be open source" and "... I also wanted an administration console that actually \*worked\* without the need for hacking xml and restarting the server for simple tasks".
To read through all of Gieman IT Solutions' reasons why they chose GlassFish, see their full questionnaire here. Here's how Gieman IT Solutions summarizes their reasons for using GlassFish, Gerald Gierer writes, "We are very happy with GlassFish - keep up the good work!" and "GlassFish was the only server that fitted all the criteria." (their evaluation criteria).
