GlassFish v3 is Now Available!

Note 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 (PR) 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 (family overview) and the second generation of GlassFish came out in September 2007 (family overview). 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, JavaEE 6, and a new modular, OSGi-based, architecture that expands significantly the applicability of GlassFish.

Key links available now:

• GlassFish v3 Main Product Page
JavaEE 6 Hub
• JavaEE 6 Downloads (multiple bundles)
Java EE 6 Feature Article (also see Overview White Paper).

We are hosting several events in the next few days; we hope to see many of you at our Virtual Conference on Dec 15th, and in one of our Community Parties.

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 #glassfish to facilitate discovery. Some level of geotagging would help visualize the spread of the community.

It's been a while since we've mentioned Sang Shin's "Java Passion" classes. Sang is a tireless creator of material for training and hands-on labs (HOL) with detailed step-by-step instructions. The already very long list of hands-on labs now includes :

GlassFish Programming/Development (with Passion!) Online Course (main page)
GlassFish OSGi Hands-on Lab
GlassFish Embedded Hands-on Lab

but also :
Ajax/Comet Lab with GlassFish
Java EE 6 samples
Servlet 3.0 samples

.. and there's even more to come : Managed Bean, Interceptors, Bean Validation, CDI, JPA 2.0, JSF 2.0, and EJB 3.1. These are likely to come after Sang is done with Sun Tech Days in Brazil (São Paulo), starting this Tuesday (December 8th).

Monitoring GlassFish v3 using its REST Interface

ALT DESCR

GlassFish v3 has a REST/HTTP interface that is implemented using Jersey. The interface is used by the GUI admin console but can also be used by other clients; for example, the data can be exported as JSON, XML or HTML and the REST + JSON combination makes JavaScript clients very easy to write.

Check out Rajeshwar's recent writeup to learn how to Use the REST interface Monitoring.
