Slides and Code Samples on Jersey and JAX-RS
The Slides and code from Paul Sandoz's presentation at Presentation at AlpesJug on Jersey, JAX-RS and Atmosphere are now now available. The actual presentation was in French, but the slides are in English, and the code is... code.
Invoke OSGi Service from JAX-WS Endpoint
Arun has published yet another TOTD (Tip Of The Day), with complete instructions and code. This one is
TOTD #130: Invoking a OSGi service from a JAX-WS Endpoint. Arun's approach is to document the demos he gives at his presentations through the TOTDs. Quite a bit of work, but it makes the content useful to a world-wide audience.
WAS V7 - Inching Towards JavaEE 6
IBM has recently been using a "Feature Pack" approach in upgrading its WebSphere AppServer; it seems to work pretty well for them and they released two packs for WAS V7: Feature Pack for OSGi and JPA 2.0 and Feature Pack for SCA. IBM is, of course, one of the Java Licensees; WAS v7 is one of the JavaEE 5 Compatible App Servers, the feature pack aproach helps it move towards the JavaEE 6 list.
VirtualBox at Oracle
One of the challenges during Hands-On-Labs is setting up: the attendees usually bring their own laptops but each of them is different and requires slighlty different setup.

Which is the same approach that both Arun and Alexis had advocated for a new series of GlassFish HOLs being planned.
Masoud has a detailed post - actually a book chapter - that you should read to Learn the GlassFish v3 Command Line Administration Interface (CLI)
This year's JavaOne is the first under Oracle and will coincide with Oracle OpenWorld.
