GlassFish v3 - Platform Services and Remote Restart
By pelegri on Jun 06, 2009
GlassFish v3 includes all the benefits from its Java EE 6 compliance and its modular, services and OSGi-based design, but it is also the opportunity to address a number of long-standing RFEs and issues that were to hard to address on the old v2 architecture.
Byron recently reported on two of these RFEs. The first is Platform Services Support: it is now possible interact with Solaris/OpenSolaris SMF and Windows Services. Check Byron's writeup and give us feedback so we can try to incorporate it in our final September release.
The second feature is on the ability to do Remote Server Restart via the CLI or an HTTP-based request (I need to check with Byron if the feature made it into the admin console).
Check these out, and please give us feedback so GlassFish v3 is as useful to you as possible.
