Get As to your Qs - GlassFish Community Update on Tuesday

This Tuesday, June 8th, 9am PT (TZ converter), we will host another GlassFish Community Update. We will use GlassFish TV at uStream, like our previous update - you just need to point your browser to the channel (additional show info).  uStream (still?) uses a Flash client - the App Store says there is an iPad client but reviews suggest it might not work on this channel.

The presenters will include Nazrul and TomM, from Oracle, as well as Mathieu, from Serli; Alexis and I will be MCs. We will cover the ongoing development of GlassFish 3.1 Open Source Edition, starting with a brief recap of the roadmap and the 3.1 schedule and then discussing Milestone 1, which already includes Basic Clustering and Dynamic Reconfiguration as well as Application Versioning, a contribution from Serli.

The presentation will include demos of M1 as well as live Q&A with the panel of presenters via the uStream online chat and via twitter #glassfish. Like the previous time, we will make the recordings available for later viewing, but attending is your best opportunity to get As to your Qs.

Comments:

One topic that will hopefully be addressed at the community update is what will happen to all the resources so far hosted at http://slx.sun.com/ (already gone) and http://mediacast.sun.com/ (scheduled for shutdown 2010-06-30). Material posted as recently as two months ago (see, e.g., http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/entry/replays_for_glassfish_roadmap_now ) will be gone soon. Think about the extent of the loss: GlassFish.TV episodes: gone. GlassFish Podcast episodes: gone. This is a tragic loss for the GlassFish community; in fact, the entire Java community is affected - all media resources hosted at \*.sun.com are going the way of the dinosaurs. Evidently, Oracle didn't quite think this through in their integration planning. Their execution is rather ham-handed. Ironically, the safest place for Java information is anywhere but at \*.sun.com: content hosted at slideshare.net or IBM developerWorks will survive, content hosted at the birthplace of Java will not. Sad indeed.

Hi Richard. Thanks for your comments.

I agree the status of mediacast is an important issue, and we are working on it, but we almost certainly will not have a resolution by Tuesday. Do bring it up during our Q&A, though.
