GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #3 - From install to cluster in 10 minutes or so

In this third post of the SOTD (Screencast Of The Day) series following the release of GlassFish 3.1, here is Anissa's Centralized Administration in GlassFish 3.1.

This 11-minute demo shows :
• the installation of GlassFish 3.1
• the configuration of remote clustered instances (via SSH)
• the web admin console to configure the cluster and instances
• deployment of an application to the cluster
Very neat!

This screencast is hosted on the GlassFish YouTube Channel.

Web Admin Console - feedback wanted

The web admin console is often mentioned (in our "stories" for instance) as a strong feature of GlassFish but the team doesn't want to stand still and is looking at evolving the console as part of GlassFish v3 (due later this year) and is asking for feedback.

The expected benefits are a more modern look and feel, bookmarkable pages, better performance, and a more extensible design to allow for customizations and more community contributions. Feature-wise, the document discusses deployment of non-war artifacts, Scripting support (monitoring of the jruby container for instance), grizzly configuration and more.

Feedback is expected before March 23rd, 2009 and should be shared on the GlassFish Forum. This has an impact on more than just GlassFish App Server so if you're a WebSpace user, a GlassFish ESB user, or an ISV building on top of GlassFish, make yourself heard!
