Top of the Pops in Santa Clara; Empathy for Developers

Sorry, Mick, Keith, Brian, Bill, and Charlie. I could not resist.

A number of people have run into issues deploying and running applications on GlassFish, due to the security manager. You can read some of the stories by clicking on the linked blogs and articles that you can find here.

Well, those GlassFish hatchery workers (oft times known as software engineers in other parts of the world) have seen the pains that the security manager has wrought on developers. Since the goal of Java EE 5 is 'Ease of Development', they have decided to use a null default security manager...

This will make deployment and execution of applications that use many popular frameworks MUCH easier. Petr Blaha also discovered another benefit of running the application server without the security manager.

As Ludo commented, look for the this important EOD change in promoted build 39, which is coming soon.

Actually, Carla tells me that this was delayed and ended up not making in in b39... - eduard/o
