Stésud, GlassFish and MySQL - A Multi-Million Sun Deal


This morning Sun issued a Press Release (Sun, Reuters) on a multi-million dollar deal with Belgium-based ERP vendor Stésud s.a.. Quoting from there:

Java-based GlassFish was the first piece of the puzzle we identified to meet our stringent new infrastructure requirements. As soon as Sun acquired MySQL, we decided to employ it as our new database rather than Oracle. With Sun behind both GlassFish and MySQL, it was the best open source infrastructure combination for our needs and for our customers' operations.

You can read about more adoption at our informal Stories blog and at the more formal Customer Success Stories site.

ADempiere on GlassFish Server


ADempiere (Home, Wikipedia) is an open source project for ERP, CRM and SCM. It traditionally runs on JBoss AS but Praneet shows how to easily run it on the GlassFish Server.

Check out Praneet's entries on Creating ADempiere Project in NetBeans - Part 1 and Part 2, Debugging ADempiere on GlassFish Server and then Run it on GFv2U2. It would be nice if a GF bundle were to show up and we saw something like the Fast Liferay Adoption.
