Starting with version 3.0.1 the Oracle GlassFish Server product now has a list of supported platforms just like any other Oracle product and that in fact, has increased the reach of the product compared to the Sun days. As always, the compatibility matrix is linked off of the "Hardware and Software Requirements" section of the Release Notes volume of the GlassFish Documentation.
For Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1 the compatibility matrix is here. The list is long with a wide variety of 32-bit and 64-bit OS and JVM combinations, with systems ranging from Oracle Linux or Red Hat EL 4 & 5, SLES 10, several incarnations of Windows (2008 R2, 7, etc..), Solaris 10 Update 7+, with XP, Mac OS and Ubuntu listed as developer platforms.
JVM-wise, GlassFish has now been requiring Java 6 for a while and the minimum HotSpot version is 1.6.0_22. On the Web Server front, Apache 2.2, Oracle HTTP Server 126.96.36.199 and iPlanet Web Server 7.0u9 but also Microsoft IIS 7.5 are all supported. Note also that the Supported Virtualization and Partitioning Technologies for Oracle Fusion Middleware applies to Oracle GlassFish Server.

• Palm Pre -
This seems one of the best of the iPhone challengers - looks like a good OS, multi-tasking/touch, physics, nice design
and a keyboard.
Now, back to our usual topics, helping you by providing our own competition :-)

The top #5 blogs at Blogs.Sun.Com are almost always the same, but every now and then there is an uncommon top name. It often seems quite random and most likely SPAM, but sometimes it is actually interesting...
Check these pictures from Jeff Bonwick's blog. For reference, the guy at the right is Jeff (of ZFS fame), and the one on the left is Linus (of Linux fame).
No, I don't know what the photos mean; I don't work in the Solaris team and although I've known Jeff (Jackson) for many years his office is in the Menlo Park campus and mine is in the Santa Clara campus... :-)
And, if I knew, I couldn't tell you :-)

Virtualization is really hot now. We recently mentioned about Using LDOMs to partition a T2-based system. This week's annoncement of Solaris 10 8/07 includes New Zones Features including BrandZ Zones.
The first BrandZ (lX) allows Running Linux Apps on Solaris (see earlier news). A new announcement is Project Etude which enables Solaris 8 Apps running as guests on a Solaris 10 host; see Marc's Business Overview and Dan's Technical Overview.
Added: Also see the announcement about Windows and Solaris virtualization.

Harpreet is an Ubuntu Fan, and Rick Also Likes Ubuntu. Since next week is Ubuntu Developer's Summit, Harpreet decided to do a more careful check on the status on GlassFish on Ubuntu. The result is that it already passes almost all tests - Check his Blog.
I know that Harpreet and a few other members of the GF community are going to the Summit, so we will report any new developments from there.
