GlassFish 3.1: using the master password and managing instances

Posted by carlavmott on March 2, 2011 at 12:38 PM PST

GlassFish 3.1 supports creating and managing instances on multiple hosts from a central location (the DAS).

GlassFish 3.1 m2 supports creating and starting instances on remote hosts.

One of the main features in GlassFish 3.1 is clustering and for m2 we have added support for creating and starting instances on remote hosts.  The underying GlassFish 3.1 code uses SSH to connect to the remote hosts and introduces the concept of a node which is used by the system to deterimine where the instances will be created or started.

This blog highlights some of the changes that are part of GlassFish v3 logging.  Since Prelude I have added 3 asadmin commands related to logging. I have updated the set-log-level command and changed the syntax. See below for details. The new commands are:

I recently blogged about the changes to logging GlassFish Prelude. Building on that I wanted to show how to add custom handlers to your installation of v3. You may find that you want to log messages to a database, send them to a remote server or log messages from specific loggers to your own file.

GlassFish V3 logging changes

Posted by carlavmott on October 28, 2008 at 2:30 PM PDT

Logging in GlassFish V3 has undergone some changes to leverage the logging utility in JDK.

Happy Birthday NetBeans from jMaki

Posted by carlavmott on October 21, 2008 at 5:00 PM PDT

I was happy to see that the NetBeans birthday celebration page uses the jMaki revolver widget. Go to and you will find the revolver used to easily access an interview with James Gosling, pages pointing to community members, a contest and more. It's a great use of the widget.

Happy Birthday NetBeans!

Getting server side data into a jMaki widget

Posted by carlavmott on August 25, 2008 at 9:53 AM PDT

I got to help out with the EJB 3.1 keynote demo for JavaOne. Although the demo shows how simple it is to perform CRUD operations using EJB 3.1, this blog focuses on the communication between the client side jMaki components and server side servlet.

I found that TravelMuse is a great site to help plan vacations and I was excited to learn that they use jMaki to build the site.

Daniel Ziaoure is the lead Web developer for TravelMuse and uses jMaki extensively. We were lucky enough to have him join us during our Community One day presentation on jMaki.
