Bauer Systems, a GlassFish user has been in the business of Media production (both print and online) for more than 130 years. They use a broad range of technologies from Java EE 5 to NetBeans, Oracle, JavaDB (yes, two different databases for different requirements), EJBs, Web Services, JMS, and some SOA.
The development effort for the GlassFish-powered applications so far has roughly been 20 person years. Development happens on a broad range of platforms while production is on Linux. Documentation quality was one of the deciding factor for Bauer to go with GlassFish. They are yet another user of OpenMQ but also JBI (in the form of OpenESB), and probably the first user to call out the GlassFish logo and t-shirts as one of their favorite product feature!
As always, make sure you read the Full Questionnaire for GlassFish adoption by Bauer Systems for more details on all of the above.
