From MS IIS to GlassFish - Netcraft tells a story, we want yours too

ALT DESCR

One of Netcraft's services shows what a site is running, now and historically. Using it you can see how RTL.fr moved from MS's IIS to GF (live, snapshot) and then Funradio.fr followed (live, snapshot). Hopefully more companies in the RTL Group will follow suit.

We are always interested in adoption stories of GlassFish. If you find a site that is running on GlassFish, or participated in one such adoption, let us know at stories at sun dot com.
