In GlassFish Web Services are first class manageable objects, combined with detailed Monitoring and Diagnostics. Find out how you can manage the objects as well as how you can contribute.
See the AJAX FAQ for the Java Developer.
An update to the early draft of the JDBC 4.0 spec has been released.
Another group is online in project GlassFish. Checkout the implementation for JSR 77, Java EE Management Spec, which provides a standard model for vendors to manage the Java EE Platform.
You can now download GlassFish builds for all platforms including MacOS.
callflow is a new feature in GlassFish which enables applications developers and system administrators to monitor the behavior of applications deployed on the server.
We removed click-through and just made it easier to participate in project GlassFish.
Thin clients will probably continue to be the deployment of choice, but so many developers spend all of their time trying to dress up a web page to act/feel like a desktop application. What will you use to develop your next desktop application?
This is my first ever blog. I got many e-mails recently, asking me details about a feature called on-demand initialization (or lazy initialization) in Sun Java System Application Server or GlassFish (http://glassfish.dev.java.net) and I thought I could use this blog post to explain what it is all about.
Folksonomy, Ajax FUD and crazy elevator hacks
Web development can really hurts sometimes... but some smart guys came up with the solution you'll love!
If you are looking for a quick way to get upto speed with jaxb 2.x, I have put together a jaxb 2.0 tutorial based on my short presentation at OSCON 2005. Click on the link above to see online references to the material.
The J2SE platform has come a long way in internationalization. Some things are just easy...like entering your name in a Swing text field regardless of whether your name is John, JosÃ©, or ç”°ä¸ (Tanaka). Unicode prevails within the Java core. Unfortunately, entering non-ASCII text in the J2EE world isn't nearly as easy.
I downloaded GlassFish and now what? I added a web application and instructions so that you can get a jump start on trying out new features in GlassFish.
A summary of some of the feedback on my last post on web frameworks and Ajax, including a pointer to the facelets project on java.net, an interesting alternative view of JSF.
A short blog on tainting, and how you shouldn't be worried if you look at the GlassFish codebase.
As you know, we've open sourced Sun's AS PE. Recently, some people have taken us to task on not doing the rest of it too. Leaving aside the "geez, are we ever going to not get flack" factor, I thought I'd post this...
In "Got Servlets?", Greg is asking what we'd like to see in the next major revision of the Java Servlets specification. In no particular order, here are my initial thoughts.
OK, there's a new concern that a few people raised about Sun's Open Source strategy - the Joint Copyright assignment. I'll try to explain why its not a Sun Evil Plot(tm), and why we're doing what we're doing. I'll also give other examples in industry of folks who are doing the same thing, and explain why.
A new book on J2EE architecture is well worth recommending.
