Updated GlassFish GeoMaps!

Some of you may recall the Geomaps we used to update every month to share the activity of GlassFish users. This map (available from maps.glassfish.org) had not been updated for many months because of networking changes in our lab causing the overal long and rather brittle process of generating these maps to be, well, broken. Arun stepped up to the plate and fixed the problem to give us an updated set of recent maps up to March 2011 (see his recent post).

The various maps show the overall activity with cumulative (since 2007) or monthly hits but also unique IP addresses which is an approximation of GlassFish users based on the usage of the admin console. That approximation is an over-count mainly because of DHCP but also a undercount because a fair number of GlassFish installations do not have internet access correctly set, while some users only use development tools, the RESTful admin or asadmin instead of the admin console. In any case, these are \*not\* download numbers but rather active users.

It's always tricky to interpret these charts but you can see that the trend is good and the absolute numbers almost as high as the post-Java EE 6/GlassFish v3 launch. Let's track the results for the upcoming months to see if GlassFish 3.1 helps confirm these.
