Security Features in GlassFish (and comparison against SJS AS 8.x)
By pelegri on May 29, 2007
One of the goals of GlassFish v2 is to incorporate all the features in SJS AS 8.2 EE (Enterprise Edition). For the most part this means adding features that everybody would want, but some features are mostly for backwards compatibility, or because of specialized needs. The tradeoffs are acheived via the notion of Profiles.
Shing Wai has posted a good Overview of how the different Security features map to GF v1, GF v2 and its profiles and SJS AS 8.2 EE. His summary table is very useful, check it out!
