... Seam and Terracotta with GlassFish, JBoss new Portal, EJB Timers, NB 6.5 Builds, Android as FOSS

A compilation of today's news of interest:

More frameworks come with GlassFish support out-of-the-box. Seam 2.1.0 GA is out and GF support is now explicitly mentioned ([1], [2]), and Terracotta 2.7 is out, also with GlassFish support ([2]).

JBoss announces a new relationship with Magnolia (website). The tip landed in my inbox as a "new JBoss portal strategy" and there seems to be some angle there as JBoss.org is switching from the JBoss portal to Magnolia Enterprise, but I think of Magnolia as mostly a CMS product rather than a portal, so will keep an eye on more details. See Announcement.

NetBeans continues to get closer to NB 6.5. The community builds with the multiple localizations are now available for review and feedback - check out Masaki-san's writeup.

GlassFish v3 Prelude includes support for the EJB 3.1 draft through the new update center, and Marina has modified instructions on how to Use the EJB Timer (small modification from previous instructions).

And, as Android becomes more real, Google has Open Sourced it.


Hi - just got this post from a colleague of mine. The magnolia announcement is not a change in strategy for the JBoss Portal. JBoss Portal is still part of the JBoss strategy and has a healthy roadmap. I have posted a couple blog entries about it already

Thanks for the clarification, Jason. That seems consistent with what Magnolia does. - eduard/o
