We now have an aggregated feed for all webtier related blogs - http://feeds.feedburner.com/GlassFish-webtier.
In my previous post I described some of the pluggability mechanism being added to the servlet 3.0 specification. One of the issues that I didn't touch upon in detail was how the annotations and web-fragments are processed and how can one override / turn off the auto scanning of annotations and web-fragments.
In my earlier post I gave an overview of the things that are being worked upon in Servlet 3.0. This post focuses on one of the areas that the expert group has been working on - pluggability.
There are a lot of frameworks / libraries that are built on top of the servlet container.
Update: The early draft of the specification is now available at the JCP site. Click here to get to the draft.
It's been a while since I put a post on the blog so I thought I would take this opportunity to give an update on the servlet 3.0 specification.
Earlier in the year we had
pre-announced that we would be doing a JSP sub-project to encourage re-use and contributions from external developers. Today we would like to officially announce the availability of the JSP project.
Today we announced the general availability of GlassFish v2 and associated products notably the Java Application Platform SDK update 3. In the previous release of the SDK we had included the SWDP bits. We are no longer doing that with this release of the SDK.
Servlet 3.0 (JSR 315) was filed and approved by the JCP executive committee. See voting results here.
Unlike some of the previous releases of the specification which were just maintenance of the specification we will be revising the servlet API to use some of the modern language features.
Project Jersey is the open source implementation of JAX-RS: The Java API for RESTful Web Services that we started earlier this year. A very early access of the implementation is now available in source and binary form.
