Glassfish is pretty cool, and in most cases, you don't need Apache as the front end. Most folks with Tomcat use apache to handle non JSP traffic.

But I am not confident in glassfish's future from Oracle. Sun was pushing it, but Oracle has other products that the marketing folks may think compete.

Glassfish is still the reference implementation for Java EE (in other words, it is supposed to demonstrate how an official Java EE application server is supposed to implement the standard).

As far as I understand it from what I hear on Oracle's Java podcast, Glassfish is meant to be the Java EE implementation that first implements the newest standards, while for example Weblogic is meant to be the "proven technology" implementation: it won't implement the very latest Java EE standard immediately, but it will be better tested and more "proven" than Glassfish.
