JavaOne 2011 Technical Keynote - Java EE 7 (Video, Podcast)

While all the JavaOne 2011 keynotes are available from the OTN Media Network, if you're interested in the Java EE portion of the technical keynote you can now get straight to it on the GlassFish YouTube Channel or on the GlassFish Podcast.


The audio/podcast version is Episode #77 and is only 15 minutes as the demo portion was edited out (not ideal in audio-only format). If you want to get to the demo details, consider the video or the detailed instructions to run it yourself. There is a dedicated page on the elasticity part of the demo.

Remember you can track the progress of the Java EE 7 Expert Group as well as the work going on in the GlassFish 4.0 builds (we're now down to build 5 now)..

OSCON Java videos on YouTube

OSCON Java (a new track this year) is going on right now in Portland, OR with a bunch of keynotes already posted on YouTube.

These are short 10 to 20-minute presentations. The Twitter Java case-study is probably the most popular one so far (although YouTube seems to have some issues counting views) but you should probably spend time watching Steve Harris' "Open Source, Java, and Oracle -- Cracking the Code" to find out all about the POSTL (Perceived Open Source Threat Level).


Other interesting videos include Joe Darcy's very fine "JDK 7 in a Nutshell" (possibly the best presentation title at an O'Reilly conference) or Josh Bloch's "Java: The Good, Bad, and Ugly Parts". I have to say that I started watching one and ended up watching almost all of them.

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 :


GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #1 - Product Overview
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #2 - Upgrade cluster
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #3 - From install to cluster in 10 minutes or so
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #4 - Performance Tuner
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #5 - Load-balancing with GlassFish plugin for Oracle iPlanet Web Server
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #6 - Monitoring Scripting Client
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #7 - Clustering Infrastructure
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #8 - Active Cache for GlassFish (Coherence\*Web)
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #9 - GlassFish and WebLogic JMS interoperability
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #11 - Change Master Password
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #12 - Oracle GlassFish Server Value-Added Features (GlassFish Server Control)
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #13 - Developer Tools Support
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #14 - High Availability Demo
GlassFish 3.1 SOTD #15 - Enhancements in HK2 kernel Infrastructure

New GlassFish Videos (@YouTube) and Audio (@GlassFishPodcast)

We have new Videos and Audio Recordings.

New Videos

Arun has uploaded several new videos to GlassFishVideos, our official channel at YouTube:

• Two short interviews as part of a JavaOne Playlist: RedFX: JavaFX Widget Library for GlassFish, with Johan Voss and GlassFish scales and configures very quickly for Micello - the "indoor Google Maps" company with Prakahs Narayan.  Also check out Arun's companion blogs (RedFX, Micello).

• A 6-parter playlist based on the OSGi HoL from JavaOne.  See the blog for details and play the playlist.

GlassFishVideos has been growing very nicely.  We launched on July 20th and it already has 39 videos, with over 20K upload views, almost 7.5K channel views, and 227 subscribers.  We are just getting started and, given the abundance of mobile devices that are good YouTube clients, I think the channel will be very successful.

New Podcasts

At the same time, Alexis has uploaded two podcasts to the GlassFish Podcast.

Episode #67 is an interview with Masoud Kalali recorded at JavaZone in Oslo; Episode #68 features Adam Bien and was recorded at JavaOne.

GlassFish Podcasts now has 68 episodes, download them directly from the website, via the feeds or via the iTunes store and you will be able to use them in your next traffic jam... or on the Tube.

Introducing GlassFishVideos - GlassFish at YouTube

We now have an official YouTube channel for videos related to GlassFish: GlassFishVideos. The channel already has 15 screencasts from Alexis, including the new one on the Hudson Provisioning Plugin, and over the next few weeks we are going to complete updating videos from Arun, myself and other sources.

We don't yet have a process to determine what content goes there but, as always, we welcome your suggestions.

GlassFish (YouTube) Channel


Due to popular demand, the GlassFish Channel is now live!

Since both glassfish and theaquarium users were already registered by someone in Australia (same person not posting anything...?) we're going with As of today, you'll find 16 screencasts, most of which focus on version 3.0. This includes the six short introductory demos from the launch of GlassFish v3 in December 2009 linked off of the getting started page, but you'll also find the recent Milestone 1 screencasts and more...

The way this works is as follows: the GlassFish channel is set up to present a default playlist which aggregates a number of GlassFish-related screencasts. If you have a video on YouTube and would like to be listed on the GlassFish Channel, simply send a request to

Added The old name (javascreencasts) was very generic; we created a new channel and moved the content there. The new channel is GlassFishVideos.

10 Minutes of Fame - GlassFish Video at SDN

Head Shot of Eduardo's Video

Simon is hosting a series of video interviews at the SDN Channel on OpenSource. We taped the interviews some time ago and we are releasing them once a week during March. Last week was the Introduction to the Series; this week's webcast shows interviews with Mark Reinhold on OpenJDK and with me on GlassFish.

My 10 minutes of fame start arount minute 9 of the Webcast. It came out reasonably well, considering it was a one-shot interview, unlike my earier interview in Feb 2006.
