2012 @ full speed
By alexismp on Jan 01, 2012
First of all, on behalf of the GlassFish team here at Oracle, wishing you all readers the very best for 2012!
Phew, 2011 is done and it's time to look at the year to come and what we should all expect to achieve together.
First, and probably above all, Java EE 7 is what will keep most of the team busy for 2012. While there's the obvious Cloud/PaaS theme, there will also be a lot in store developers with JMS 2.0, javax.cache, JAX-RS 2.0, JPA 2.1, but also CDI 1.1, Batch, Identity, State Management, JSON, Concurrency for JavaEE, and more.
Of course there can be no Java EE 7 without a GlassFish 4.0 release, its production-quality Open Source reference implementation. So expect the usual transparent development with regular promoted builds.
But before GlassFish 4.0 hits the streets, you'll be able to enjoy a 3.1.2 release, a highly compatible and improved version of the 3.1.x branch.
What else would you like to see in 2012?
