GlassFish forum?

Is there anyway that someone could put a GlassFish forum under Products?

Many, many thanks!

New forums are created as a result of the number of posts on a topic. Is GlassFish -- which I've personally never heard of -- getting a flood of posts somewhere?

Bear,

Thanks for the response! Basically, its a new open source application server, which Sun started, which is Java EE 5 compliant. One should be able to run the sample Java EE application which come with the Java EE 5 tutorial if they can get it up and running.

About six months ago, Sun Microsystems sent an evangelist to the San Diego Java Users Group, and they showed off the features of EJB 3.0 and StAX using Glassfish.

See: https://glassfish.dev.java.net/

I have it installed in my OS X Tiger PowerBook and am downloading the Fedora Core 5 DVD ISO, right now, because I plan on learning Java EE 5 on OS X and Linux.

Yeah, Java EE 5 rocks! I decided not to learn Spring, since Java EE 5 just came out and is definitely going to be the new standard.

I think that since we have an Orion forum, why not just make a GlassFish forum and see how many people start posting messages to it? I think that it is going to be an essential tool to learn when the Java EE 5 certifications come out.

Hope all is going well and thank you, once again!

Glassfish is too new, not a lot of people are using it yet.
Orion may be quiet at the moment, but it did use to get a lot of posts.

Thanks for the info. Interesting project.

That's not the way the Ranch works. When a topic or project gets a lot of traffic, then a new forum is considered.

This isn't really on topic for this forum, but I can't resist saying something...

J2EE (1.3, 1.4 or 1.5) does not differ much whether it's on OS X or on Linux. The directories where one installs the application server is different, but that's about it.

I can see why you're excited about the new "EE" spec and I am glad that they didn't screw up EJB 3.0 (it looks quite good, in fact, comparing to what EJB 2.x was) but I'd still like to point out that J2EE and Spring are different technologies for partially overlapping but also partially different markets. You don't write J2EE applications without an application server, for example, but you can use Spring without one.

Lasse,

The reason I am yearning to use both linux and OS X Tiger is because I want to run middleware components and databases in linux and then create client apps (which connect to them) on my PowerBook. I understand that linux and BSD-Unix (OS X) are similar but I personally like to practice / train myself using different computers for an n-tier architecture.

I've missed out from attaining several fat jobs in Southern California and the reason is because people are looking for WebLogic and Spring experience. Whether or not Spring isn't used when a company is relying on EJB maintainence on a heavy duty app server, it is easy for it to co-exist and run on ANY app server.

As for where GlassFish is concerned, where should I start posting / answering questions?

Sincere regards everyone!

The nice thing about Java is that the operating system or hardware you run it on is pretty much irrelevant.
I develop on Windows, test on Linux, and deploy to AIX and SCO at the moment.
I also develop against a completely different database engine from the one we're deploying against for the simple reason that I don't have the money to buy that one (or the money to buy the hardware to run it on, come to think).

Try that in C++

I'd say that the Other Java Products and Servers forum would be most appropriate for now. If enough traffic is generated, a new forum would be considered.

Actually Glassfish is the Open Source New development for the Sun One Application Server (Now called The Java System Application Server) you could use that forum for questions on Glassfish.


I Hope This Helps

+1

Also consider your questions and be sure they are Glassfish questions if posting in that forum and not JEE questions. JEE questions should be posted in appropriate forums (JSP, Servlet, JSF, etc).

Cool. I added "also GlassFish" to the forum description.

Good move, EFH. That should eliminate any confusion as well as invite questions on the topic.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
