7-minute Community GlassFish Clustering Screencast

Community member Faissal has recently put up a 7-minute screencast of an un-edited setup of a GlassFish cluster.

His clustering setup spans across a mac and a virtualized Ubuntu host. It can probably be further simplified using the SSH provisioning feature (asadmin install-node) to avoid logging into remote machines.

ALT_DESCR

You may remember John's GlassFish clustering in under 10 minutes, a very successful video which was based on version 2. Since that we've put out a number of demos on YouTube for our 3.1.x versions including a full webinar replay.

Eclipse Multitenancy. Now with a screencast.

As a follow-up to the previous EclipseLink's mutitenancy blog post, the recent Eclipse Indigo release train and the recent GlassFish Podcast interview on EclipseLink, we now have a short screencast showing it all in action.

You can also find it on the GlassFish YouTube Channel.

JPA Multitenancy

The scenario is pretty simple with two simple and identical web applications deployed with different tenant identifiers via persistence.xml customization (just one of the means of identifying tenants with EclipseLink). Hopefully this'll help people understand what Java EE 7 multitenancy might look like.

GlassFish 3.1 Screencasts (so far)

One new thing we tried for the release of GlassFish 3.1 was to do not only blogs (see coverage), but also screencasts done mostly by the engineers themselves but also from product managers.

Screencasts are not easy to produce - they take time and the result is not always what you had hoped for (technical issues, length, scenario not well thought out) but I have to say I'm very happy with this first batch of screencasts hosted on the GlassFish YouTube Channel. Here's the list so far :

This video also features a demo using Eclipse 3.6 showing a similar developer experience (support for Eclipse 3.7 is coming as well). Both IDEs support inline Java EE 6 javadocs.

GlassFish Embedded Server: a blog, a screencast and a doc

GlassFish Embedded (i.e. drive GlassFish from an API) was enhanced as part of the 3.1 release to improve the fidelity with the non-embedded case. Popular use-cases include testing but also embedding the GlassFish runtime as part of an application for easier administration-less deployments.

If you're interested in the topic, Bhavanishankar has a quick introduction to Embeddability of GlassFish 3.1 discussing the setup (all-in-one JARs) and the main APIs. John "Java Evangelist" Yeary also posted a 5-minute screencast showing the the Embedded API in action. As a bonus you can also sprinkle some Scala into the mix.

The GlassFish 3.1 documentation includes an Embedded Server Guide with yet more details.
