GlassFish 3.1 supports creating and managing instances on multiple hosts from a central location (the DAS).
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:
* asadmin rotate-log
* asadmin list-logger-levels
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.
You may be seen the announcement yesterday about the GlassFish V3 Prelude release. At the same time, we released jMaki 1.8.1. jMaki provides a framework for building Ajax applications and was fully tested on GlassFish V3 Prelude.
Logging in GlassFish V3 has undergone some changes to leverage the logging utility in JDK. This blogs reviews where we are with the logging mechanism in GlassFish Prelude and since not all of the features are implemented in the Prelude release yet, I'll go over how to make use of the functionality that is there.
Last spring we added performance enhancements to jMaki based on well known guidelines for improving page load times. The guidelines are from Yahoo and we have automated several of them.
I was happy to see that the NetBeans birthday celebration page uses the jMaki revolver widget. Go to netbeans.org/birthday 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!
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.
