GlassFish 4.0, starting the engines

We've previously described the road to GlassFish 4.0 (and Java EE 7) and Shreedhar has now just informed the DEV alias that we've reached GlassFish 4.0 promoted build #2 en route to a first Milestone build.

If you're eager to start playing with the (admittedly somewhat bleeding edge) bits, go to the promoted builds page, grab your favorite artifact (or build from source) and provide feedback.

See you with more details at JavaOne!

Yet another GlassFish 3.1.1 promoted build

Promoted build #9 for GlassFish 3.1.1 is available from the usual location. This is the "soft code freeze" build with only the "hard code freeze" build left before the release candidate. So if you have bugs you'd like to see fixed, voice your opinion *now*.

GlassFish 3.1.1

As a quick reminder, GlassFish offers Web Profile or Full Platform distributions in ZIP or installer flavors (some more details in this blog post from last year but still relevant). If you've installed previous promoted builds or simply have the "dev" repository defined, then the Update Center will simply update the existing installed bits.

In addition to the earlier update on 3.1.1 it's probably safe to say that this version was carefully designed to be highly compatible with the previous 3.x versions, thus leaving you with little reasons not to upgrade as soon as it comes out this summer.
