Gartner on GlassFish v2

Analysist reports from our GlassFish v2 FCS launch are beginning to appear. Quoting from Gartner's report:

Gartner Logo

Sun and the GlassFish open-source community have delivered the first production-scale open-source Java EE 5 application server. This challenges the dominance of market leaders like Red Hat and IBM.

Note that the analyst identifies GlassFish as challenging the leaders of the open source market (JBoss) and the enterprise market (WebSphere); we are seeing plenty of evidence of this with our own (new) customers. But we have seen no impact from the WebSphere CE branding of Geronimo - which just adds an entry-level offering unrelated to IBM's enterprise-quality product.
