I have split the resources and news links off from this
GlassFish v3 Announcement
into the first of one of a series of resources and links entries.
The new arrangement is more manageable and also simplifies the creation of additional
entries as more resources and news are posted on the release.
It has been 4 and a half years since we announced GlassFish during JavaOne 2005
and today we are making available our most important release:
GlassFish v3 is now
available for download!
Our first release was during JavaOne 2006,
we released GlassFish v1, the first Java EE 5 compliant App Server
and the second generation of GlassFish came out in September 2007
While still based on JavaEE 5, GFv2
leveraged on Sun's
(too) long history of App Servers
to add the benefits of an enterprise product (quality, performance, scalability)
to those of an open source community
(agility, ease of use, supportive teams, pricing).
While the transition between GlassFish v1 and v2 was evolutionary,
the transition from v2 to v3 is a major change that includes a whole new set of JCP specifications,
and a new modular, OSGi-based, architecture that
expands significantly the applicability of GlassFish.
Below are lists of posts relevant to the launch and the release;
they will be updated through the day to incorporate news as they happen.
Updates will also be posted to
@glassfish at Twitter.
If you use Twitter we recommend you to use

Some level of
