From Kevin and Mark - The recent Price Increate on Oracle Fusion has lead to a new conversion offer for Java CAPS (our SOA product built on GlassFish Server and OpenESB). Check Kevin's and OnTheRecord, these videos (beware! auto-run) and InfoWorld and TheRegister.

Alexis noticed a common thread in several comments in the USER alias for GlassFish Server and explains How Configuration on NetBeans may differ from that of your deployment GlassFish Server; and what to do about it.

Thanks to Swen-Helge for a pointer to this Mural/MDM tutorial.
