Japan, March 2011

There are times when we all find it difficult to find adequate words and this disaster in Japan is one of them. Let me just say here that the GlassFish team and TheAquarium community share the grief with our Oracle fellow colleagues, customers, partners, friends and everyone hit by the earthquake. May you all be strong facing this adversity.

Consider making a donation.

Rakuten - GlassFish Use in Japanese Online Company

ALT DESCR

An outcome of the recent trip by Kohsuke to Japan was last week's Adoption Story with Ratuken (Home, Wikipedia) one of the largest internet companies in the world - their site is currently ranked by Alexa as #62 Worldwide and #5 in Japan.

The Adoption Story (english, japanese) and the detailed Questionnaire with Rakuten's Chief Engineer (Chihiro Miura) (english, japanese) provide more details, including their development OS (Debian), deployment OS (RHEL), database (MySQL 5), frameworks (iBatis, Struts, Spring), and IDE (NetBeans). Rakuten's use of GF is small but the first deployments are always the hardest and hopefully others will follow.

Japan has a great community of developers and I'm looking forward to our growth in that geography.

... Japan Developers Rock, MEP Connectors, Games with Comet, JSF Giant Post-Its, Mini Displays and HOTC

A compilation of today's news of interest:

Kohsuke returned from Japan where he had a good time and started building more relationships with developers, users and customers. He writes about a Visit to Apresso where he talked about Hudson and Sorcerer, another Sun campus at Youga on Metro and Jersey, and his Hudson Keynote at the JJUG conference. We have also tossed around the idea of him hosting an online webinar in Japanese similar to the one I hosted in Spanish last week.

Arun and Jim presented at AjaxWorld on how to Use Comet in a Two-Player Game built using the Grizzly Comet facilities. Check out the Presentation Description, the slides in PDF and the actual code. Arun even has a Rails/Grails Version.

More articles on MEP: Santiago describes the development cycle of a MEP connector, including source code generation from a template, compilation and deployment. Also check the MEP product page and the Administration Page.

Quite a bit of JSF activity as we get closer to JSF 2.0. Roger presented at AJAXworld on AJAX Frameworks and JSF, and Ed, shows how he handles the JSF 2.0 Endgame - I've done my share of specs, but I've never seen it done that way - look carefully at the pictures, those are not post-it notes :-)

I am not a heavy Toy guy, but this one I could use: a 7 inch display from Nanovision. I would use it as a dedicated screen for my RTM page, but I can also see it as a dedicated Skype or IM window.

Finally, on news from your Editor, I'm going to be traveling through the next week, so expect reduced posts, and special congratulations to the Williams College, Women's V2 boat.

... JRuby Frameworks, GFv3 Docs, Japan, JRE in-place replacement, Blackberry storm

A compilation of today's news of interest:

Radio Receiver Icon

Jacob reports from JRuby-land that he is working on Support for More Frameworks in GlassFish, like merb. Others will follow, so let him know if you have preferences.

We are in the last few weeks before GlassFish v3 Prelude, and Paul has announced Final Review for Documentation. Review ends on Monday, so you don't have much time left.

Kohsuke is now in Tokyo, starting his (Japan Trip. Check out the GeoMap on Japan: we have 140K hits there, not bad, but I'm sure we can do better with improved outreach, which is why Kohsuke is visiting.

A new JRE is brewing. The new Java SE 6 Update 10 has an in-place update for the JRE in your desktop. This is a big change that will reduce the download time and will simplify your disk management. The Intro at SDN News has a pointer to a dummy try-out program, consider checking it out to give us feedback on the new release.

And the BlackBerry Storm is out, with its new touch-screen, see: Vodafone, Hands-On and AppCenter. From reading the crackberry entry, it seems the store is for distributing apps from the carrier - which is more limited than the iPhone AppStore, but, since the store is not the only way to download an app, that's less critical.

... Kohsuke and Japan, SocialSite M1, Grizzly the Preventer, Global Desktops, Nuxeo and v3

A compilation of today's news of interest:

Kohsuke just returned from his Trip to Brazil but he is leaving again, this time to Japan. He will be a keynote speaker at the Japan Java Users Group, see Schedule (translation) and Speakers (translation). Check out KK's announcement and let him know if you want to get in his schedule.

SocialSite has released it first milestone - see SocialSite Milestone 1, check out the Community Site, the Download, or Related Posts. Thanks to Bobby for the tip.

More Grizzly Power! JFA writes about how to use Grizzly to provide Protection from Rogue Web Apps (no, not that Rogue) through priority response queues.

Pat writes about how to use OpenSSO to provide integration with Sun Global Desktop. OpenSSO has been gaining visibility recently (see Google Trends) specially after the Launch of OpenSSO Enterprise earlier this week.

More GlassFish v3 adoption, even before it releases: Eric Barroca, the CEO of Nuxeo, the open source ECM system, reports in an interview at OpenSource ECM.fr about their plans for supporting it.

LinuxInsider: Sun, Open Source Standard Bearer!

LinuxInsider Logo

The MySQL acquisition is quickly changing the perception of Sun's commitment to Open Source.

Earlier today I pointed to new efforts in the Health and the Education industries, here are two more stories:

• The University of Tokyo and Sun start Research on HPC and Web-based Languages
• Sun and Chinese Government announce OpenSPARC Collaboration.

Assessing all this, LinuxInsider says: Deals Cast Sun in Role of Open Source Standard Bearer.

I'm not surprised the deal is changing people's perceptions; but I am a bit surprised at how fast and how deeply it changes them. This is going to a be a very interesting year for us.

TheAquarium in Japanese - Translation Restarted

Clip from TA_ja

Given the Worlwide Adoption of GlassFish we have several translations of TheAquarium. The Russian translation has Increased Readership Recently; I think that is because it tracks well the English version and, now, thanks to Ogino, so is the Japanese Translation.

We are going to try to reactivate the Spanish and Chinese translations, and I am still interested in a translation to Portuguese, so let me know if you want to help. For logistic reasons at Blogs.Sun.Com it is much easier to do this for Sun employees, but contact me in any case if you are interested in helping with the translations.
