We Need Your Help! Survey on GlassFish Adoption


We track different Adoption Metrics for the GlassFish Server but we have very limited annecdotal data on how Migration occurs. Please help us understand a bit better how this migration is happening by completing this Short Questionnaire.

The questionnaire has a few basic questions on AppServer use in your group; it should take you 5-10 minutes. Thanks!

New GlassFish Porting Series - Module Loading Order


I'd rather the world was not in such a deep financial mess, but Innovation Loves a Crisis, and we are very busy with new customers that want to move away from expensive proprietary solutions... and we are not alone: I presented on this to a large SI last week and to another one next week.

One of the people working on the porting effort is Sekhar, and he just started a new series on Java EE Module Loading Order - see Part I. He promises more entries; previous entries are tagged switch.

Re: the photo at left is a rendering of a large celestial impact that caused the Cretaceous Tertiary Extinction according to the Alvarez's hypothesis. In that analogy, the dinosaurs would be the proprietary app servers :-)

Added - Sekhar has published a new short entry on taglib-location discovered when porting from JBoss to GlassFish.
