Announcing Web Stack 1.5 release, delivering enterprise capabilities.

It's my privilege to announce external availability and delivery of Web Stack 1.5 revenue release (RR). This release is very special one, a key milestone as it represents the most compelling enterprise web tier product offering in the GlassFish Portfolio till date.

New in this release are the Web Stack Enterprise Manager, and support for fully relocatable IPS(5) based Update Center distribution. In addition, Web Stack 1.5 ships with the most recent evolutions of the open source releases including latest releases of Apache web server, MySQL 5.1 and more. With GlassFish and Tomcat along with Hudson continuous integration server integrated, we are happy Web Stack serves many constituencies. At a glance, Web Stack 1.5 release includes the following:


Web Stack Enterprise Manager (screenshots below)
Fully relocatable Update Center ips(5) image distribution
Apache HTTP Server 2.2.11
lighttpd 1.4.21
memcached 1.2.5
MySQL 5.0.67 and 5.1
PHP 5.2.9
Python 2.6
Ruby 1.8.7
Squid 2.7.STABLE5
Tomcat 6.0.18
GlassFish v2.1
Sun Continuous Integration Server 1.312

Web Stack web site has more information including product data sheet and links to download and documentation:
http://sun.com/webstack

http://wikis.sun.com/display/WebStack/Sun+GlassFish+Web+Stack+Documentation and the Web Stack product forum.


There are many nice things to talk about in this release: looking at shiny new Web Stack Enterprise Manager, for instance, one can't miss the keen eye for detail there; if there is one fully relocatable AMP stack in the industry today, it wouldn't be a overstatement to say that it's the Web Stack 1.5. This release represents not just a product revision but a key milestone in the web tier product line that should appeal to enterprise users. Did we say Web Stack 1.5 integrated profile shipped with OpenSolaris 2009.06 distribution?

 


Note: The Enterprise Manager is the only 30-day evaluation component of the Web Stack. An unrestricted version of the Enterprise Manager along with a full 24x7
production support for Web Stack can be purchased via GlassFish Portofolio
subscription - which offers flexible pricing to
scale as you go with Basic, Silver, Gold and Platinum packages with the
GlassFish Portfolio. For more details, please visit - http://www.sun.com/software/products/glassfish_portfolio/get_it.jsp.

Cheers.

Looks really promising. I am curious about the last screenshot, where it says "Evaluation Period Remaining - 29 Days".

Hence to my question - Is this an evaluation product or is it free?

I was unable to find any prices at sun.com, except for support services.

Looking through the tech specs, I notice that mod_perl is included, but Perl is not listed among the other scripting languages supported (PHP, Python, Ruby). Why?

Posted by Mark Gardner on July 30, 2009 at 06:04 AM PDT #

The three supported platforms (OpenSolaris 2009.06, Solaris 10u5+, RedHat Linux) already have an adequate (not necessarily optimal, but adequate) perl so Web Stack doesn't need to include another copy of perl.
