From zero to load-balanced GlassFish cluster

Bordeaux's François has a how-to entry on installing and setting up a cluster of the latest GlassFish 3.1.1 on an environment with nothing pre-installed (no java, xauth, etc.).


This is over multiple machines, including a load-balancer tier. You should find the GlassFish clustering part to be fairly straightforward and the load-balancer part detailed, with its security/SSL configuration and management straight from the GlassFish admin server.

François also has two other GlassFish-related entries :
Using Jsp in a Jersey JAX-RS RESTful service
How to change the Glassfish server log level from command line

Setting up GlassFish for production on OpenSolaris


Installing GlassFish for developing is fairly easy and you are even given multiple options (simple JAR installer, Sun installer, IzPack-based installer, and now zip-based for v3). Installing GlassFish for production certainly needs a bit more care.

Brian Leonard over at the OpenSolaris "Observatory" blog has a recent entry on how to setup GlassFish for production use in a cluster profile. It covers installation from the update center, user setup, domain directory, and SMF service creation.

Also don't forget to read the GlassFish "Installation Guide" and "Deployment Planning Guide" from the standard documentation set.
