A couple of weeks we provided an update of the
GlassFish v2.1.1 Schedule;
it's now time to do the same with that for GlassFish v3.
The key driver for GlassFish v3 is JavaEE 6.
This means GFv3 leverages the expertise of the wide JCP community
and our users have the benefits of a standard but...
it also means we don't control all the variables
- which is
but can be painful in the short-term.
We knew things could get complicated when
after the PFD for most of JavaEE 6,
and was later
accepted by the JCP EC.
The relationship between JSR 330 and
was resolved recently
and both will be
part of JavaEE 6,
so it was just a matter of doing the numbers, and...
The answer is about 8 weeks.
GF v3 Roadmap
puts the FCS at Nov 24th,
just in time for
The change propagates to NetBeans 6.8
as well as follow-up releases to GFv3 (exact dates still shimmering).
So, that's the new date.
It's actually quite good, considering the magnitude of the last-minute change.
Overall, I know 330 will make for a better release - just let's hope that next time
submissions don't come so late in the cycle...
