History and Compatibility
By carlasblog on Feb 03, 2006
I found a couple of blogs that I think are related in a very fundamental way. Vince's blog A history lesson of deployment strategies talks about different approaches to deploying apps on GlassFish. He referrs to an article on deploying to SJSAS 8.1 and also astrategy to use ant as means to avoid unnecessary compiles. BTW, Inder just posted a blog that describes how the Java BluePrints team uses ant to build and deploy apps within the NetBeans environment as well as standalone.
Kin-Man writes that a goal of JSP 2.1 is to provide a unified expression language (EL) for JSP and JSF. He talks about how compatibility with previous versions was broken in a recent build of GlassFish but fortunately a fix was made available in the last promoted build .
Compatibility is and has been very important in GlassFish. Compatibility to the specs, previous versions of the product or with other tools all matter.
