Towards GlassFish 3.1 - Best Thing since Sliced Bread
By pelegri on May 15, 2010
A lot of progress on GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 3.1. If everything goes according to plan, by the end of the year we will have a release that has all the benefits of 3.0 and of 2.1.1. From 3.0 it remains modular, embeddable and with JavaEE 6 and OSGi support. From 2.1 it adds clustering and HA. It will continue to be Open Source and will interoperate with key Oracle middleware components.
The development of 3.1 is documented at our GlassFish Wiki; key links include the Plan for 3.1, the Feature List, Engineering Schedule and the Functional Specs. Chris Kasso has started weekly engineering meetings.
Each main feature has an overview page describing it; over the next few weeks I will do a series of spotlights on these features. It can be the best thing since Sliced Bread :)
