GlassFish Logo

GlassFish v3 "Prelude" is launching today. Expect blogs, articles, and more throughout the day. If all you want is the bits, here they are.

This release builds on top of the Apache Felix OSGi runtime, offers great extensibility, support for Rails and Grails, developer features (fast startup, retain sessions across redeploys, NetBeans and Eclipse tooling, ...), an embedded API, Comet support, a brand new IPS-based update center, RESTful web services, a preview of several Java EE 6 features, and much more. Check out this introduction article as well as the press release, it also mentions a few partners building on top of GlassFish v3 Prelude.

Hear all about these new features in today's Online GlassFish Day. 20+ short sessions starting 8am PST.

Thanks for the hard works to make this happen!


I noted that AIX is not in the supported platform list:

Available on Popular Platforms – GlassFish v3 Prelude is available on Solaris 10, OpenSolaris, Red Hat 5, Windows XP Professional and Vista Business Edition, Ubuntu 8.0.4, and MacOS X.

Is Glassfish v3 Prelude not available on AIX? If so, is there a timeline that AIX will be added to the supported platform list?
