Second Edition of Java EE 5 and GlassFish Book


Alexis announced Antonio's JavaEE 5 Book in May 07 but I can't find the TA entry - probably too busy with the JavaOne 07 events. Fortunately, he is giving us another chance!

The second edition of Antonio's Java EE 5 book is now available and it comes with more content on GlassFish Server - still only in french, though. Check out the details of the new edition at Antonio's Announcement, at Eyrolles (the publisher) and at

Book announcements are tagged Book. I'm planning a recap entry on the topic in a couple of days.

GlassFish en français - A dedicated forum on

The GlassFish project has its own forums and mailing lists, but often times people feel more confortable using their native language. (a popular website for French-speaking developers) has recently opened a forum dedicated to GlassFish.

First questions cover things such as the difference between GlassFish and the Sun-branded Application Server, GlassFish roadmap, differences with JBoss, JMS limitations, etc...

You'll also find a provocative "Does GlassFish stand a chance?" debate :) The comments are actually very positive and encouraging. My favorite quote is this "I was waiting for another Open Source application server, and clearly found GlassFish instead".

Feel free to comment here if you'd like to see more content in French or in a language other than English. Here's a GlassFish presentation in French from the recent Solution Linux conference in Paris.
