Blueprints Wiki - Best Practices on ZFS, MySQL, Hadoop, and much more

I just bumped into the Sun BluePrints Wiki and I think it is worth a visit. It is a companion to the BluePrints Blog and part of the move towards Self-Published Content at Sun, which increases agility and responsiveness to user's needs.

The Recent Content page lists chronologically the latest changes. The more recent entries are created in Wiki format, while the earlier ones are PDF attachments.

Some of the documents that caught my attention include:


Hadoop Primer
Optimizing MySQL Server on x64 Servers and Storage
Configure J4000 and ZFS in 10 Minutes
Modularity in Data Center Design
Using SSD instead of HDD
• V12N Entries: Solaris HW, LDOMs & CMT, LDOMs & IO, xVM Hypervisor.

GlassFish cluster administration - When do I talk to the DAS?

Small schema of cluster

Kedar has a blog on GlassFish cluster administration (domain, DAS, Node Agents, Instances, ...). This should come handy to people looking at understanding when synchronisation actually happen with the DAS (Domain Administration Server) which is where the centralized repository sits.

We often claim to have BEA's features at JBoss' price. This centralized cluster management is certainly one such feature.

Latest GlassFish with latest Liferay

Liferay Logo

St├ęphane Paquet has a set of instructions on how to use Liferay 4.3.5 and GlassFish 2.1. The instructions most probably also apply to the latest GlassFish stable release - v2ur1.

The detailed instructions include recompiling liferay straight from SVN and cover PostgreSQL or MySQL as the backend databases. This could probably be ironed out with binaries, an installer or maybe even with the update center.

HowTo - EJB3 local bean access in servlet using glassfish

I'm going to try a new series at TA - short references to useful tips and howtos elsewhere. My plan is to replace this with a social network-based solution based on Slynkr when that is available, so this is a bit of a prototype / try out the idea. This series will also be useful for the FAQ we are building.

HowTo : GlassFish & Pentaho

[see previous entry]

Despite the distractions of the World Cup, Stefan Paquet has blogged more of his experiences with running Liferay Portal and Pentaho on GlassFish (entry). He also shares some views on running StringBeans Portal on GlassFish as an alternative to Liferay. Definitely worth reading.

FWIW Stef - I actually think France were the stronger team - the only team to succeed in breaking down the Azzurri's rock solid defense. I'm sure Carla would disagree though :)
