Selmet software with GlassFish - Croatia has more than beautiful beaches and a great football team

Selmet

This time GlassFish is put to work in a Warehouse Management System in Croatia. Selmet operates in an industrial environment offering operators with ruggedized handheld devices communicating with GlassFish-powered Web Services. The most common use of this software is for inventory and article checking.

One interesting side to this GlassFish ISV Partner story is how a mostly Microsoft-minded company benchmarked Micrososft's IIS (the WCF stack) against Metro (GlassFish's Web Services stack) to finally deploy GlassFish on Ubuntu. Selmet used NetBeans as the development tools and PostgreSQL as their database.

Find out more about this story by reading the Full Questionnaire for GlassFish adoption by Selmet and the associated case-study.

DocDoku: Turn-key Content Management experience with GlassFish


DocDocu logo Rich Java client and state-of-the-art server-side Java EE 5 are two key technologies used by DocDoku to provide online document sharing, versioning, and task management using workflow technology.

Technically speaking, this service started out as a stand-alone rich Java Swing application deployed with Java Web Start technology focusing on slick and intuitive user experience and interacting with custom server code. It soon appeared to Florent Garin, the key DocDoku architect and a Product Life-cycle Management expert, that the team was effectively rebuilding a mini appserver on its own, while polished open source application servers already offered such features (resource management, component models, etc.).  The end-resulting architecture combines rich Java client with the Java EE5 server-side architecture.

The team chose the GlassFish application server over JBoss as explained in this questionnaire and felt that the web administration console and the NetBeans tooling integration were the main two benefits they got from doing so. Stability has been another benefit, with their production GlassFish instance requiring zero restarts since going live in September 2006.

DocDoku's service is clearly aimed at small and medium business with price points ranging from free to €99 per month for 20 users but it has also seen adoption in larger enterprises.
