Introducing the Oracle GlassFish Server Control

I had missed the new name for the old Sun GlassFish Enterprise Manager - it is now called the Oracle GlassFish Server Control, and we have just published its Data Sheet.  Also in the official Oracle documentation you can find the Data Sheet for Oracle GlassFish Server, as well as the System Requirements and the FAQ.

All these are available from the official product page at And the pricing is from the Official Price List :)

Added Also see Alexis's post on eDelivery links.


Adam pointed out that Oracle GlassFish Server Control is available to Oracle customers via 'eDelivery' at

Woow, so GF3 is licensed @ $5k/processor now? No more support subscription uh?

Yes, but (a) you have to consult w/ the "Oracle Processor Core Factor Table" to convert those units into something that makes sense to you. And (b) talk/negotiate with your friendly Oracle sales rep.

I thought Oracle was gonna treat GF as a separate open-source initiative from WebLogic product. If more enterprise features are built on GF3.1 and they license it to compete side by side w/ WebLogic, it makes little sense to me long term to maintain 2 JEE stacks cannibalizing each other in the same market... Is there a differentiation strategy I'm missing there? Or are those bound to merge at some point?
