Gartner on GlassFish v2

Analysist reports from our GlassFish v2 FCS launch are beginning to appear. Quoting from Gartner's report:

Gartner Logo

Sun and the GlassFish open-source community have delivered the first production-scale open-source Java EE 5 application server. This challenges the dominance of market leaders like Red Hat and IBM.

Note that the analyst identifies GlassFish as challenging the leaders of the open source market (JBoss) and the enterprise market (WebSphere); we are seeing plenty of evidence of this with our own (new) customers. But we have seen no impact from the WebSphere CE branding of Geronimo - which just adds an entry-level offering unrelated to IBM's enterprise-quality product.

Additional Coverage

Earlier reports from the GlassFish v2 FCS announcements are here: [day 1], [day 2], [day 3], [day 4] and [day 5]. Late additions are below:

David has very kind words about our GlassFish v2 launch yesterday. You might dismiss them as "he is just a Sun employee..." but I actually find them even more powerful because he is a Sun employee not in the GlassFish team, and came through an acquisition. Check out his writeup and judge by yourself.

Note to self: file under "lessons learned" and "problems I'd like to have"...

My original plan for reporting on the release of GlassFish v2 FCS had been to provide an in-place update to a News Roundup but we have had so many reports that a better approach would have been to provide several updates through the day, plus daily updates and a recap at the end.

Anyhow, learning, below is a quick update at Tuesday morning. The list is partial - I'll try to really catch up for Wednesday morning; also, the original Launch Roundup grew a lot through Monday, so you may want to check it out also.
