JavaOne 2011 Java EE Technical Keynote Demo - under the covers

The "Java EE Applications in the Cloud" demo in Linda DeMichiel's JavaOne 2011 technical keynote covered a lot of ground - PaaS, virtualization, orchestration, elasticity and more.

If you've missed it or if you want to learn more, this page as a link to a detailed screencast and all the instructions to run the demo yourself using a recent build of GlassFish 4.0.

It's still early days, so you still have an opportunity to share feedback and influence both the overall Java EE 7 direction as well as GlassFish 4.0.

It's raining GlassFish 3.1 Cluster screencasts!

A couple of months back (soon after Milestone 3 was released), we published a "GlassFish 3.1 Admin Console" screencast which offered a glimpse at what centralized admin and clustering would look like in the GlassFish 3.x family. As recently as last week, another GlassFish HA video was published based on the more recent bits.

Earlier this week, Paulo released a detailed three-part screencast series in Brazilian Portuguese : [1], [2] and [3] based on these full instructions and instances running in virtualbox images and accessed via ssh. And finally we now have S├ębastien publishing a short (7-min) demo with GlassFish 3.1, a load-balancer and session failover from one node to another (and back) in 12-steps. Clearly S├ębastien decided to have a bit of fun in the post-processing of his video. Check it out!

Maybe we should start a competition for the best GlassFish 3.1 screencast and award prizes when the product ships? The GlassFish Youtube channel has more than 325 subscribers with close to 15K channel views and 60K upload views.  Subscribe to not miss any of the content; so far there are 60 videos.

GlassFish v3 demo detailed

GlassFish v3

Bobby has a detailed post about his GlassFish v3 demo during the Sun Tech Days conference keynote a couple of weeks ago in Boston.

It is similar to the demo Jerome (the GlassFish architect) put together in this screencast, but it also goes into NetBeans 6 Ruby support and V3 plugin, as well as JRuby's new GlassFish gem. Obviously, the modular architecture, very fast startup time, and having multiple containers all accessing Java's libraries such as JPA, JAX-WS or others were the key messages. GlassFish is set to no longer be "just" a Java Application Server.

The details about GlassFish V3 plans are here. Support for Java EE 6 is one of the many goals as explained in Tom Kincaid's slide deck from the keynote.
