    Is Glassfish injecting itself with
    anabolic steroids in that 'toon ?

    Now I realise this is a marketing blog and all, but really, calling an ad-hoc migration to a beta build tool of highly dubious value a 'build improvement' really is a stretch.
    How about instead of adding yet more junk, you fix it so the random collection of build.xml files available either work, or are deleted to stop fooling people into trying them and thus gaining an awful impression of the abilities of Sun folks to create sane build scripts?

    Hi Hani.
    I don't think of TA as a marketing blog, but rather as a way to convey information about GlassFish and to encourage activity on GlassFish. Sometimes we may come short, but we do try [BTW, I saw one of your recent blogs on this area and I translated that into trying harder].
    Regarding the specifics of improving the build, it may be more effective to post your comments on the forum I listed. External feedback will be useful in keeping the topic in the front burner, even
    as everybody is busy with getting the beta ready.
    Thanks, - eduard/o
