July 06 - GlassFish Rankings at Java.Net (Corrected Metrics)
By pelegri on Aug 28, 2006
We have been tracking Java.Net stats (e.g. June 06) as one of several ways to gauge adoption. The stats for July 06 came out a few weeks ago and, as in the past, GlassFish looked good: #1 in membership, accesses and hits, and, through jaxb2-reflection, also in commits, but mail traffic dropped from #1 to #10. I checked and found the explanation in Matt's blog.
All these metrics are just approximations but they are useful and I want to collect more accurate numbers. I did a quick check and mail (and forum) traffic is increasing substantially this month as part of our Increased Transparency. I'll write a real report at the end of the month but, if you are curious, you can look here.
