Liferay 5.1.0 - with Project WebSynergy and GlassFish v3


Yesterday, Liferay released version 5.1.0 of Liferay Portal [download]. This latest release incorporates a number of new features, including features and bugfixes contributed from Project WebSynergy (e.g. the portlet container). Future releases will continue to incorporate components such as Mirage CMS API into Liferay Journal, WSRP 2.0, SAW, and presence components (all of which are present in the foundation of Project WebSynergy).

As of 5.1.0, Liferay is now bundled with GlassFish v2 and GlassFish v3 [Download Now]! It's a lightweight (33% reduction in size), platform-neutral download that demonstrates the power and modularity of GlassFish v3, with a real-world app. Kudos to the Sun and Liferay team!


Cool - Why is tomcat the default web container and not glassfish?

Hey Jim - we're working on that, trust me :)

Historically Tomcat was used for demos and such, because of its small download size and fast startup time. The tide is turning in GlassFish's favor however, so stay tuned :)
