During much of his career here at Sun, I've had the pleasure of working with Jerome on several projects. He is a Sun veteran with more than 9 years in Java Software. Jerome started in 1996 to work on the JavaBeans team then moved on to create the Java Plug-in. After a few more years in Java SE, he moved to Java EE land, where he helped with the verifier for J2EE 1.3.
The GlassFish documentation set has many books to help users understand how to use and manage the server. Many of those documents are now on the GlassFish project in draft form. The Developer's Guide, Application Deployment Guide and the Troubleshooting Guide are just a few.
Netbeans support for Java EE 5 features is under way and it's easier to run on GlassFish.
Many people voted on the buttons created for the GlassFish and related technologies web sites. I'm excited to announce that button 3 was the clear winner. You will start seeing this button on various sites related to GlassFish. Thanks for all who participated in the survey.
This Ask the Experts session gives you the opportunity to ask questions about GlassFish. Guests are Jim Driscoll, Amy Roh and myself. Submit questions you have about GlassFish to Ask the Experts anytime next week. All questions and answers will be posted on that site as the week progresses.
Take a minute and choose the button that you like best. The winner will be used on the GlassFish and related technologies sites. Thanks.
In the last week or so alot of code has been added to the GlassFish project to support the persistence module . This code includes CMP 2.1 and EJB 3.0 persistence. The EJB 3.0 Persistence code is based on TopLink and contributed by Oracle.
GlassFish includes JAX-WS 2.0 in each of it's nightly and promoted builds. In addition to including the standard implementation, GlassFish includes features to help manage the web services once they are deployed on the server.
Another group in the Admin and Monitoring module of GlassFish is online. This group has implemented the J2EEManagedObject base model, optional StateManageable model for the server management object, and MEJB. The objects that can be managed include J2EEDomain, J2EEServer, Applications, Modules, Resources, JVM and other manageable objects within the server.
