News from the Web Stack: Update Center install and Django
By alexismp on Aug 21, 2009
Jeff's blog entry on installing Web Stack using IPS (a new feature in 1.5) now has a screencast version (4 min. ogg format, use Firefox 3.5 or VLC 1.0), courtesy of Brian. The GlassFish Web Stack (see recent 1.5 release) uses the same packaging technology as the GlassFish App Server and as OpenSolaris (where the technology initially came from).
IPS, also known as pkg(5), offers a packaging system and tools (both command-line and graphical) to install and manage images. Check the IPS tag for more coverage (mainly applied to GlassFish AS).
Earlier in the week Brian had also posted a detailed entry on how to setup Django using WebStack on Solaris, together with a screencast (also in .ogg format). This one uses the "native" Python implementation and the Apache web server. For details on how to run Django with Jython on GlassFish, visit Vivek's blog which has all the details for you (the GlassFish v3 update center now has a jython container available as an add-on).
