The Migration Tool for GlassFish/SJS Application Server has been available for some time now. What Sekhar is announcing is the Open Sourcing of that tool which is GlassFish-specific and picks up where the AVK (Java EE 5 only) left off.
The new homepage for this migration tool is https://migrate2glassfish.dev.java.net/.
The tool currently does not support the latest and greatest versions of application servers, but that's not very important given it is meant to help people move their older applications over to GlassFish. Finally, just like the AVK, this is "just a tool", so while it can save you some precious time, it probably cannot claim 100% effectiveness.

JavaWorld has an article entitled JBoss, Geronimo, or Tomcat? Three open source Java application servers compared. It's unfortunate that they did not include GlassFish but Masoud has attempted to address that through his latest blog entry; Check it out!
We probably should write some comparison articles of our own and submit them for publication. Maybe after GFv2 UR1 goes out we will find the time to do it.

The number of posts at Users @ GlassFish for November was 1359, which is our second-best number, after last month's 1480. This is pretty good as many US-based people traditionally take off the whole week of Thanksgiving.
I was curious about how the mail activity would compare with that of Tomcat, so I went ahead and created charts for Tomcat-USERS (small chart at left, also see Large Chart) and Users@GF (Large Chart). Many disclaimers apply, and a true head-to-head comparison is not applicable, but the trend is very good.

Metro is the answer and the list of containers keep growing. Metro can be easily installed on Tomcat 5.x using the installation script with the download bundle. An updated directory structure in Tomcat 6.x require a minor update to the script though.
Rama describes the change required to run JAX-WS samples on Tomcat 6.x. And my blog describes how to install Metro bundle on Tomcat 6.x to develop a Secure, Reliable and Transactional Web service endpoint. We will make these changes as part of the installation script so that you don't have to worry about version specific changes.
Let us know if you have tried Metro, or any of its component, on any other container.
