Towards GlassFish v3 fcs - Monitoring and New Enterprise Manager Features


One of the areas that has been improved significantly in GlassFish v3 is monitoring - see Prashanth's Functionality Overview. Most of the functionality is in the core product but some added value features will be part of the next version of the GlassFish Enterprise Manager available through Sun's commercial Sun GlassFish Portfolio.

Two recent posts by Sreeni explain how to use the new functionality to Enable/disable monitoring and attach Btrace-agent and to Create pluggable container-monitoring elements. The new monitoring functionality can also be used with JRuby, as Arun describes in How to monitor a Rails app using asadmin, JavaScript, jConsole, REST.

We are all looking forward towards GlassFish v3 FCS!


I've been under the impression that V3 will not have clustering support and that we'll need to wait until V3.1. This wiki page gives me the impression that clustering will be in V3.0?

My concern about waiting for V3.1 is that the future of GlassFish at Oracle is unknown, and I wonder if they will put the brakes on an important feature like clustering.

When is V3.1 scheduled for release? Clustering is very important for one of my projects and we can't upgrade until it is there.

v3 does not have a central administration console. Let me see if I can find the proper link to the v3.1 feature set.
