Spend June in Denver and attend Oracle University's "GlassFish Server 3.1: Administration and Deployment"

I've never been to Denver, CO in June but I understand it's a great time to visit and now you have an additional reason with a new course offered by Oracle University :
Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1: Administration and Deployment


The full description for this 4-day course is here (multiple hands-on included, also covers GlassFish Server Control) and the cost is $3000 Dollars. A Live Virtual Class format is also available for the same content.

GlassFish Training at Oracle University

Ryan was looking for the "new" location for GlassFish training coursework at, and we asked John for help. The answer is Oracle University; from there go to its knowledge center and then you are a search away from all the content.

A search on "GlassFish" showed 18 hits; some are from 'old' Sun products but most are for Oracle GlassFish Server.

The search does not seem bookmarkable, :-(, but click on the image at the left for a larger screenshot.
