  • Glassfish Enterprise manager – Similar to the MySQL model of advisors, we have released three great add-ons, for SNMP monitoring, Performance Advisor and Performance monitoring. These add-ons, come with the paid Glassfish enterprise server, hence more reasons to get a supported version, if you are using the free Glassfish server. The add-ons are available for download from, for customers with valid contracts. The Glassfish Aquarium has great blogs and articles on this release.
  • Sun web space server – The new portal server based on Liferay and the previous Sun portal server has been launched. The docs are available at and also the portal blog is alive with lots of posts and articles. Compliance to JSR 168, JSR 286, JSR 170, and WSRP 2.0, having an integrated Content management system, lots of web 2.0 gadgets, ease of installation/monitoring/administration, easy fitment with OpenSSO, TCO being highly competitive, the only “real” enterprise class open source portal server, are some of the great features, that I can see resonating with customers in India.
