GlassFish has a lot to offer from Java EE 6 compliance, HA & Clustering, RESTful administration, IDE integration and many other features. However a recent blog by Markus, a GlassFish Champion, said something different: Ask not what ... [More] GlassFish can do for you, but ask what you can do for GlassFish! Markus explained how you can easily contribute to GlassFish without being a programming genius. The preparatory steps are simple: • First of all: Don't be afraid! • Prepare yourself - Get up to speed! And then specific suggestions with cross-referenced documents: • Review, Suggest and Add Documentation! • Help Others - be a community hero! • Find and File Bugs on Releases! • Test-drive Promoted Builds and Release Candidates! • Work with Code! Get things done! Are you ready to contribute to GlassFish ? Read more details in Markus's blog. [Less]

First of all, on behalf of the GlassFish team here at Oracle, wishing you all readers the very best for 2012! Phew, 2011 is done and it's time to look at the year to come and what we should all expect to achieve together. First ... [More] , and probably above all, Java EE 7 is what will keep most of the team busy for 2012. While there's the obvious Cloud/PaaS theme, there will also be a lot in store developers with JMS 2.0, javax.cache, JAX-RS 2.0, JPA 2.1, but also CDI 1.1, Batch, Identity, State Management, JSON, Concurrency for JavaEE, and more. Of course there can be no Java EE 7 without a GlassFish 4.0 release, its production-quality Open Source reference implementation. So expect the usual transparent development with regular promoted builds. But before GlassFish 4.0 hits the streets, you'll be able to enjoy a 3.1.2 release, a highly compatible and improved version of the 3.1.x branch. Hoping to see you here on TheAquarium as well as in person at one of the conferences around the world ! What else would you like to see in 2012? [Less]

After 323 posts here on TheAquarium, 2011 is coming to an end. Let's look back at what we had hoped to achieve and how the GlassFish team (and others) delivered on the promises. The most anticipated release after the Sun acquisition was ... [More] probably the delivery of a fully-clustered GlassFish 3.1 in February (see this technical article). Soon after this release, our stats indicated massive uptake, and the follow-up 3.1.1 release aligned with Java 7, another key milestone in the Java world in 2011. 2011 was also the year of Java EE 6 adoption with certifications from WebSphere 8, JBoss 6, Fujitsu Interstage, Apache Geronimo 3, Apache TomEE, and of course WebLogic 12c bringing the list of certified configurations to 12. It was also time to celebrate two years of Java EE 6 and GlassFish and to realize how long a way application servers had come. Java EE 7-wise, the umbrella JSR was filed (JSR 342), with great progress on JMS 2.0, JAX-RS 2.0, javax.cache, and others, all with transparency. JavaOne was a good opportunity to recap the overall PaaS and platform rationalization direction. We've stated the cloud and virtualization guiding principles for GlassFish evolution in September. The GlassFish 3.1.2 release is now well on its way and it is very much already possible to start playing with GlassFish 4.0 early bits (for instance to reproduce the JavaOne PaaS Keynote Demo). Finally we've also continued to deliver on portability of applications between GlassFish and WebLogic via even more sharing of components. Other notable events include the migration of blogs and the project wiki as well as greatly improved Maven support (with Maven Central now hosting way more bits). On the community side, we had another very successful community gathering and party at JavaOne and were very pleased to welcome an number of new faces in the engineering team. We also enjoyed a number of high-profile users such as espn, parleys, mollom, and more. One final achievement that came in late in the year is the support of WebSocket in Grizzly. You can browse through a number of additional posts all tagged with frontpage. Can we all do better in 2012? You bet! You'll find other Java-related 2011 blogs on java.net as well as on the Java blog. [Less]

While this Aquarium blog is a one-stop-shop for anything GlassFish and Java EE from Oracle and from the community, we also maintain a GlassFish for Business blog for those of you interested in making the most of your GlassFish commercial ... [More] license. The most recent post there, "Difference between GlassFish Open Source and Commercial Editions", covers just that - why even acquire an Oracle GlassFish Server license? Is is just the support or is there anything more? (hint: there's more). Another recent post covers the release of Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.1 Patch 2, a great example of the value for GlassFish customers - a regular cadence of patch releases. For those interested in finding out more : • Tech Price List (grep for "GlassFish") • Commercial GlassFish Offerings from Oracle (how fixes are applied to commercial an open source bits) • Oracle GlassFish Server and GlassFish Server Open Source Edition (Free vs. commercial, a blog from last year). Being consistent is a good thing (tm). [Less]

Sathyan has recently sent an email about the recent progress made for GlassFish 3.1.2. You can read some background information about this specific release in this earlier post. To give you a sense of where the team ... [More] stands on this release, consider the following : • First Release Candidate due out in mid-January • Code Freeze scheduled for Dec 12th • We're now at lucky promoted build #13 • 200+ bugs already fixed While it gets harder to get new bugs fixed every day as we approach the stabilization phase, it's not too late to provide feedback in the form of bug votes or general comments on the current promoted builds. And remember - it's never a bad idea or a bad time to submit a bug or an RFE. [Less]
