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.

Wotif.com, a strong OpenMQ reference

Wotif.com Logo Australia's Wotif.com is a successful business that has grown quite a bit in the past year and a half, becoming the number one hotel website in both Australia and New Zealand. Each month, Wotif.com attracts over 3.2 million visitors and processes more than 200,000 bookings for 11,000 hotel partners around the world as explained in this detailed story.

Beyond Wotif.com's extensive use of GlassFish, this story also mentions who they migrated from Apache Active MQ 3 to Open Message Queue 4.0. Architect Greg Luck calls "Open Message Queue to be faster than Active MQ and rock solid in production”. You'll find more details on this slide deck and this set of videos.
