midwifemate.com is a on-line midwifery practice management software that drastically reduces the paper work involved when family, hospitals, specialists, and midwife are busy taking care of the newborn and the mother. The information is accessible on a mobile device as well, very considerate of the parents-to-be. The application is hosted on GlassFish.
GlassFish was chosen over other App Servers because Java EE features are working as expected. They are using Hibernate as the persistence provider for the JPA layer.
The GlassFish is front-ended using Apache
Web server and proxy_ajp. Approximately 2000 hours have been spent
developing the application.
They like "good support for Java EE", multiple platform support and the GlassFish plugin for Eclipse.
The detailed GlassFish questionnaire provide additional details on all of the above.
