David Heffelfinger's Java EE/GlassFish Adoption Story
By reza_rahman on Apr 14, 2014
David Heffelfinger is the Chief Technology Officer of Ensode Technology and an ardent US based Java EE/GlassFish advocate. He has authored no less than four titles on Java EE/GlassFish. David shared a Java EE/GlassFish adoption story at the JavaOne 2013 Sunday GlassFish community event - check out the video below:
He detailed how he convinced a long time customer to upgrade their application servers and use Java EE/GlassFish with PrimeFaces by hacking together a quick demo. Using the combination of Java EE 6, GlassFish, PrimeFaces and NetBeans allowed him to lead a relatively inexperienced team in delivering the first version of the application in just three weeks. David also mentioned that using GlassFish as a learning tool helps keep his skills sharp and in-demand as GlassFish adopts the newest Java EE APIs faster than the other options. You can check out the details of his story on the GlassFish stories blog.
