Mercurial Micro-News - GlassFish/Corba, Kenai and


GlassFish is taking a Detour Through SVN but since the plan is still to go to Mercurial I keep an eye on adoption news and noticed these two from BSC: OOo's Pilot Program and Ken's note on Corba and Kenai.

From a quick visit to the Mercurial site some more news:

SourceForge Support
Python Switching to Hg,
GSoC Projects
• Google Code Supports Hg.

Most modern projects at Sun are going to Mercurial, including OpenSolaris and OpenJDK; two that switched to Bazaar are Drizzle and MySQL. And Kenai Supports GIT, SVN and Mercurial (need to check if they plan to support Bazaar).

Added - Other related projects on Mercurial include NetBeans and JavaMail.

ADempiere on GlassFish Server


ADempiere (Home, Wikipedia) is an open source project for ERP, CRM and SCM. It traditionally runs on JBoss AS but Praneet shows how to easily run it on the GlassFish Server.

Check out Praneet's entries on Creating ADempiere Project in NetBeans - Part 1 and Part 2, Debugging ADempiere on GlassFish Server and then Run it on GFv2U2. It would be nice if a GF bundle were to show up and we saw something like the Fast Liferay Adoption.

GlassFish CORBA Moving to Mercurial

Hg in the Periodic Table

The plan is for the main GlassFish projects to move to Mercurial (see related entries). Recently, Jerome explained that the core project was taking a detour through SVN, but in the case of the GlassFish-CORBA project Ken reports they are transitioning directly from TeamWare (like OpenSolaris).

The Road to Hg... Goes Through SVN! GlassFish SCM Plans

Old Photo of Col de Braus

We are taking a detour through SVN on the way from CVS to Hg. It is a combination of (lack of) maturity of the conversion tools from CVS to Hg, plus window of opportunity closing on us, plus constraints in some of our available infrastructure. This is a temporary detour but will let us continue with the modularization work needed for GlassFish v3.

Check details in Jerome's Road to Hg writeup. Also see older TA posts.

I think those hairpins match this hybrid view from Google Maps. Also see Ask Results for more images.

Running Mercurial on GlassFish

Liquid-looking Hg

Here are instructions, from Martin, on how to Run Mercurial on GlassFish. For more information on Mercurial, check: Wiki home page, Features, Quick Start, and Map of CVS Concepts. Also see our earlier blog and Neuron's blog.

First Look at Mercurial

Multiple Repositories in Mercurial

I found Neuron's latest blog on Mercurial interesting so I'll pass it on, with caveats. As you may have read, one of the key questions in the OpenSolaris community has been what Source Control System to use. There are Many Options to choose from, but the OpenSolaris team decided to Explore Two Options: Subversion for centralized cases, and Mercurial for distributed.

So, with the caveat that GlassFish has no current plans to use Mercurial (we have other fish to fry) and that I really don't know what other projects at Sun will do, check out Neuron's Overview of Mercurial.
