Phobos and Sun Web Server 7.0

Photo of Phobos

Phobos (overview) is a lightweight framework for writing Web Applications using dynamic languages (JavaScript so far) exploiting the Java platform. Phobos builds can run either with GlassFish or with a plain Web Container, and in his latest blog, Mukesh shows in detail how to Run Phobos on Sun WebServer 7.0.

Sun's WebServer uses the Web Container from Sun Java System 8.2 (GlassFish's Ancestor), but the contract between the Web Server and the Java Web Tier is clearly defined followed by the GlassFish web tier and I'll ask if they can to publish the steps needed to try this out.

Kudos to TheAquarium Entry.
