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.
In Glassfish, all web service endpoints are discovered and shown distinctly, so they can be managed. Response times and invocation counts are tracked and this...

In the land where Java flows freely I have encountered many that are not familiar with AJAX and ask many of the same questions. I put together this FAQ with developers that use Java and Java Enterprise Edition in mind.
See the AJAX FAQ for the Java Developer.
Some of the questions I have addressed include:
Should I consider AJAX?
Does AJAX work with Java?
Won't my framework provide me with...

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. The monitoring has been implemented so...

We have had many requests for GlassFish on MacOS as well as access to the nightly builds. Both are now available.
Promoted builds have been available for GlassFish since June 2005. Now you can download the nightly builds too. Promoted builds differ from the nightly builds in that they must pass a minimum level of testing. which includes the quicklook tests, a sub-set of CTS tests (...

When project GlassFish was introduced in early summer, the webtier group had web pages up helping users learn about the technologies in the webtier and how to find their way through the code. Today another group, callflow , is online too.
The new feature, callflow, is turned on and off through the admin interface. Once turned on, runtime information such as which containers were entered...

Many people have said that getting to the details of the GlassFish project was confusing or unintuitive. The error messages left users not knowing what to do next. Well, we listened to the feedback and we got rid of the click-through requirmement to accept the CDDL license before viewing the code or some of the project pages.
All project pages and code are accessible when you visit the site...

Let me give you a hypothetical project that involves two groups. One group develops a thin client, that is delivered over the web. This thin client works in conjunction with a fat, installed client that the other group developed. The first beta hits, both groups have a couple kinks to work out. The thin client group makes their changes from their cubicle and tells the beta customer to refresh...

This is my first ever blog. I am basically a developer/engineer by profession (not a writer). So, please don't expect my blogs to be anywhere near an organized reading material.
Lets come to the topic.
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 ... and I thought I...

If you are interested in social software, here is a discussion you must listen to. It is titled
â€œHow I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Messâ€ And if you are wondering what Folksnomy is, here is a great article I would recommend: â€Ontology is Overrated:Categories, Links, and Tagsâ€
â€œUsing the XMLHttpRequest Object and AJAX to Spy On Youâ€ is plain FUD. Ajax has neither increased...

I like rich applications. I love to develop rich applications. I foster rich applications development. And guess what? I find web development boring and damn annoying. Asides from being a student and an intern at Sun, I'm also a journalist from a french computing magazine. I spent the last 5 years learning, discovering and teaching dozens of technologies, and there were a lot web oriented ones...

Unlike jaxb 1.x architecture jaxb 2.x uses metadata and can be quite seamless in working with java and xml. Hopefully the following references are quite useful to you to get to know jaxb 2.x and start working with it.

2. Details of the presentation at OSCON 2005

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've been playing around with various web servers recently, paying special...

In order to help people get a jump start on using the lastest web features in GlassFish, I posted a web archive and instructions for deploying and running the examples. The web archive contains simple examples that use the latest features in the Servlet 2.4 specification which is part of Java EE 5.
Use these examples as a starting point to learn about the new features in Java EE 5 and...

I recently had a very sincere person, who I have every reason to respect, tell me: "I thought about downloading your code, but I don't want to be tainted." He further went on to say "If you had a statement about that on your website, I'd feel better about it."
Frankly, I was a bit taken aback. Weren't we Open Source? Was this the leading edge of another Sun Evil Plot (tm)?
I was right next...

As you know, we've open sourced Sun's AS PE (as Project GlassFish). 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 a recent article in Developer Pipeline, my boss got asked about opening the rest of it:
CRN: Will all editions of the application server be available...

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.
Programmatic access to the security realm : There are more and more sites out there that offer users a way to sign up for their services and this is fairly tricky to do with the standard, declarative J2EE security model. If...

In my last blog's comments, I had a couple of people raise the issue of joint copyright assignment. The subject was raised with the greatest respect and concern, and I'd like to thank the posters for giving me a chance to talk about it. There continues to be a lingering uneasiness about Sun's new foray into Open Source, so I'll probably be blogging on this and related subjects for the next few...

J2EE Architecture, a new book published by Tata McGraw-Hill and released at JavaOne two weeks ago, was an immediate hit and ranked as one of the top sellers at the JavaOne book store. Not a surprise. The foreword by James Gosling and Jeff Jackson hails it as being a comprehensive and well-organized volume that appeals to the academia and industry alike.
The three authors, all from Infosys, not...
