GlassFish in Japanese

There is now a translation of the GlassFish community page into japanese (see FishEye Putback). Thanks to Ogino, Yuta and everybody that helped! We have several localization efforts ongoing; others include TheAquarium ([ja], [ru], [es], [zh]) and the Java EE Download pages ([ja]).

GlassFish content at Sun Tech Days

The Sun Tech Days world tour continues on. The next stops include Paris (this week), St-Petersburg (Russia) and São Paulo (Brazil) in April (full list). Most (all?) of these events are free.

Getting Started with GlassFish -- Screencast

Alexis has put together a nice video (7 minutes, includes audio) that shows how to Get Started with GFv2. The screencast starts at the GlassFish community page, continues with the download and installation and then moves to the New Administration Console, which looks really nice thanks to Woodstock and Ken. The screencast moves nicely and will get you started. We need to create similar ones for other pieces of GF; maybe one showing cluster deployment and in-memory replication?

10 Minutes of Fame - GlassFish Video at SDN

Simon is hosting a series of video interviews at the SDN Channel on OpenSource. We taped the interviews some time ago and we are releasing them once a week during March. Last week was the Introduction to the Series; this week's webcast shows interviews with Mark Reinhold on OpenJDK and with me on GlassFish. My 10 minutes of fame start arount minute 9 of the Webcast. It came out reasonably well, considering it was a one-shot interview, unlike my earier interview in Feb 2006.
