Pense Imovies: Connecting real estate buyers and sellers using GlassFish

Pense Imoveis connects real estate buyer and seller in Brazil. This website is created by Grupo RBS, a multimedia communications based in the southern part of Brazil. After Guia da Semana, they picked GlassFish again to power this website because of the good performance and extremely fast startup and deployment time.

The deployment uses GlassFish 3.1.1 and Oracle database with RAC integration. Varnish is used for caching and mod_proxy_ajp for reverse proxying. The website is migrated from .NET to Spring on GlassFish. Even though this particular version of the application is using Spring but all future applications will be using Java EE 6.

With the upcoming FIFA world cup in 2014 and Olympics in 2016, now might be a good time to buy real estate in Brazil. And GlassFish will be happy to facilitate that!

Make sure to read full details in the questionnaire.

Ipso-Facto: Real Estate SaaS with GlassFish

Ipso-Facto builds and delivers real estate software as a service for the French market. They've been running GlassFish v2 in production for a little while now. Enough to call it "mature, recommend (it) for professional use" and start the rewrite of older applications to run on top of this Java EE server.

This company used to be a full Microsoft shop and first moved to Java with Tomcat before they adopted GlassFish. Their largest application, LogissimoASP, uses many JSF components from various sources, and operates in a Microsoft environment: Windows 2003 and SQL Server 2005. This application recently started using the clustering and load-balancing features provided by GlassFish v2 to secure the availability of the service which now has hundreds of concurrent users and spikes at well-known moments in the day.

As always, you're invited to read the detailed questionnaire for this Ipso-Facto GlassFish production story.
