iTAC Software for GlassFish

iTAC logo

iTAC software is a recent addition to the list of GlassFish stories. It is quite unique in the sense that the software developed by this ISV in the automotive, electronics and medical sectors isn't a traditional business or web application, but rather a full Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).

iTAC uses GlassFish v2, rich Java Swing clients, and an Oracle back-end to support hundreds of simultaneous clients and up to 3 million calls a day. Make sure you read the story and the full questionnaire for more details.

Great material for moving to GlassFish from Germany

One of several GlassFish codecamp in Munich

Daniel posted a few weeks ago this blog entry about a code camp he and others have been running for ISVs to port and develop their applications on the GlassFish Application Server.

Don't be put off by the page being in German, all of the GlassFish Workshop documents are in English and very good IMHO. They cover from GlassFish fundamentals such as basic installation steps to much more advanced details about how to adapt applications and their packaging for GlassFish.

Here's a list of those documents :
Getting started, Introduction and Migration.
Resource Management & Call Flow Monitoring.
Clustering & Load Balancing.
If you're more into following slides, here's a good deck.
