New Podcast episode posted - Metro update
By alexismp on Nov 28, 2008
After a fairly long period without new GlassFish Podcast episodes, here's an interview with Harold Carr, the architect of the unified GlassFish Metro Web Services stack. This 20-minute discussion covers a brief introduction, uses-cases for using secure, reliable and potentially transactional Web Services, tooling, and more.
The Metro stack is available to use in both GlassFish v2 and GlassFish v3 Prelude. In the case of the later "Prelude", the only difference is the need to add Metro support from the update center (web admin tool, updatetool UI, or pkg command-line). Also, as explained in this comparing GlassFish v2 and v3 Prelude table, you'll see that interop with Microsoft .Net 3.5 requires Metro 1.4, which is available from the update center.
