Faster than Fastest! -- Session Redeployment in GlassFish v3
By pelegri on Jul 11, 2009
Redeployment time is one of the metrics we track in our productivity metric (others include startup and deployment time). GlassFish v2 is already very fast - actually, according this survey ran by the ZeroTurnaround folks, GF v2 is the fastest JavaEE compliant container - but GF v3 is even faster.
One of the new features in GlassFish v3 is session state preservation across redeployments. Jan Introduced the new feature during GFv3 Prelude and now Alexis has published a Screencast (movie) using JPetStore (Spring, IBatis, etc). The screencast uses NetBeans 6.7 but it works equally well on the Eclipse Bundle.
Very much looking forward to GFv3 FCS...
