Sister blog - GlassFish for Business

While this Aquarium blog is a one-stop-shop for anything GlassFish and Java EE from Oracle and from the community, we also maintain a GlassFish for Business blog for those of you interested in making the most of your GlassFish commercial license.

GlassFish For Business Blog

The most recent post there, "Difference between GlassFish Open Source and Commercial Editions", covers just that - why even acquire an Oracle GlassFish Server license? Is is just the support or is there anything more? (hint: there's more).

Another recent post covers the release of Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.1 Patch 2, a great example of the value for GlassFish customers - a regular cadence of patch releases.

For those interested in finding out more :
Tech Price List (grep for "GlassFish")
Commercial GlassFish Offerings from Oracle (how fixes are applied to commercial an open source bits)
Oracle GlassFish Server and GlassFish Server Open Source Edition (Free vs. commercial, a blog from last year). Being consistent is a good thing (tm).

Navigating SunSolve - Patches for GlassFish and SailFin

SunSolve is the standard Sun mechanism for distributing "patches" to Sun products, with content ranging from Free Public Releases and Security Patches to For-Free bug-fixing patches (the majority) and is in a multiplicity of formats, from ZIPs to PKG(5).


SunSolve has been adding features recently, including some navigational help that I just discovered, so sharing them...

• A twitter account: @SunPatches,
• New, per-product, content pages, including SailFin Patches and GlassFish Patches.
• Better Introduction, Home Page and PatchFinder.

A full-list of categories is here - I'm afraid the GlassFish-related products fall under several places; to help you, we summarize them at GlassFishForBusiness and we report them via Twitter at @GlassFish.

I do not yet know what is the transition story for SunSolve to Oracle, but we will let you know as we find out.

New Hudson White Paper... and Recordings from JavaZone


We have published a new WhitePaper on Hudson: Developing Software Collaboratively with Hudson, like the rest of the GlassFish Portfolio WPs it requires (free) SDN registration. The WP provides a good overview of Hudson and Sun's commercial distribution: Sun CI Server (summary), which is part of the GlassFish Portfolio. Check it out and let us know what you think.

And, on a separate but related topic, Kohsuke just came back from Presenting at JavaZone and it seems it went very well. The recordings are now available and they look very good - see the Full List, the encodings in Silverlight and MP4.
