New GlassFish Mailing List: Architectural Discussions


Bill has announced the creation of a New Arch Mailing List for GlassFish. Quoting Bill:

The purpose of this mailing list is to discuss architectural issues for GlassFish. You might ask "what is software architecture? ...

The software architecture of a program or computing system is the structure or structures of the system, which comprise software components, the externally visible properties of those components, and the relationships between them.

This is a very important step for GlassFish. Architectural discussions were the last set of engineering discussions happening inside Sun; if you think you can contribute your expertise, please consider participating.

More on the improved JAX-WS implementation

The Shuttle Endeavour Launching in 2001

Kohsuke recently started writing about the new Improved JAX-WS implementation and now Paul is going into some Details on JAX-WS Performance. He describes the use of Japex, the new XMLStreamBuffer and XMLStreamReader, and more. He also promises more details in future blogs.

I think the new implementation will rock (or rocket?); this would be a great time for new members to join; start by using the artifacts (beta soon!), report bugs and rfes, and eventually become contributors.
