Two new GlassFish 3.1 RC releases!

The pace is accelerating - we now have GlassFish RC3 and RC4 available! Check the magic decoder ring for details.

Build 43 (RC4) is what you should be testing and this link has the 35+ bugs fixed since RC2 (in the main "GlassFish" JIRA). The promoted builds download page has several artifacts for you to choose from - web profile vs. full platform, installer-based (.exe or .sh) or ZIP, and multi-lingual (-ml).

As usual you can also use the update tool. Previous release candidate releases are covered here and here.


We've never been so close to releasing GlassFish 3.1 Open Source Edition! Did I say that before already? We should have a fun launch.


What about problems like ? I've seen it tagged with 3_1-excluded, something like that is being excluded or I am missing something? Modularity does not seems to me a capricious capability...

Hi Ricardo

As noted in the comment in
this issue is planned to be release-noted for the 3.1 release as this issue needs a fix in the Weld side.

Once Weld fixes it in a promoted build, GF would need to do another integration, and that was considered a risk, since it is late in the GF3.1 release cycle.

However there are workarounds for this scenario, including updating the weld-osgi-bundle.jar shipped with GF to the trunk version of Weld (refer comment at for more information).

Thanks for your response Siva!

Yes, I know the workaround path. I had to do that to fix the memory leak problem related to weld-gf3.0.1

Either way, I can not understad the release strategy. I know, weld is not developed by oracle and community version is community version, but oracle is releasing a product with major known bugs!

Well, I'm free to not to upgrade my server... If I am too hard with my opinions, sorry about that. I'm fascinated and thankfully about sun/oracle developments and I can understand the complexity to rely on external developments on such a key product.. But I think this is something to think about.
