THANKS to all ADF WebLogic Community Partners for the excellent Mobile Application Framework (MAF) and JDeveloper launch. It was an amazing 50 hours of an almost around the clock twitter storm! It was worth waiting a long time for the WebLogic 1

2c release the first feedback is superb!
We now have the opportunity to convert this WebLogic 12c storm in joint business! Make use of our launch event marketing campaign and run local launch events for your customers. Most of our customers have the need to build mobile applications. You can build in many frameworks mobile applications, key is to integrate and secure them in your enterprise architecture! That is where the real work and the high paid consulting work is required!
Here are some of the best quotes & tweets about MAF & JDeveloper – THANKS to all partners & ACEs & product management! Jürgen We want to promote your blog post send it via twitter @wlscommunity or #WebLogicCommunity or post it at our www.facebook.com/weblogiccommunity or contact me via linkedin.com/kress
Within minutes we received the first MAF apps screenshots thanks to Luc and Ulrich

Introduction This blog will detail how to create a simple Web Application (Web App) on a Windows 7 64 bit system and deploy it to a GlassFish 4.0 server. The web app will be kept simple, so as to keep the focus of the tutorial on the concepts; as such, the web app will provide a web page prompting the user to enter their name and date of birth, before loading another page that repeats their name back at them with their age. The blog will cover how to set up, code, and deploy the web app using the NetBeans IDE, as well as how to manually deploy it using the Windows command prompt. It should be noted that unless stated otherwise, any additional settings that can be changed but are not noted in the guide should be left as their default.

This guide was written using the following:

  • Windows 7
  • GlassFish 4.0
  • Java EE 7 32 bit
  • JDK 1.7.0_45 32 bit
  • NetBeans 7.4

Though just an introductory tutorial, the web app will be designed with good practices in mind, and so will be designed upon the Model View Controller (MVC) pattern to provide good separation of concerns. As such, the web app will have the following structure: Read the complete article here.

As many of you may already be aware, the GlassFish team has been diligently working on the upcoming 4.0.1 release. The overall goals of GlassFish 4.0.1 is very specific and focused:

  • JDK 8 certification.
  • Fixing high priority bugs, especially potential Java EE 7 compatibility gaps.
  • Architecture and design documents using UML
  • Hardening security and fixing security bugs.
  • Incorporating updates to all GlassFish components such as Mojarra, Jersey, Grizzly, OpenMQ, HK2, EclipseLink, JAXB, Weld and so on. These updates contain mostly bug fixes and some new features.

Our team has been talking about the 4.0.1 release at various venues:

  • GlassFish product manager John Clingan did an extensive interview with Adam Bien on the future of GlassFish – check out the interview text here.
  • I (Reza Rahman) did a GlassFish community open round table with the London GlassFish User Group – check out video here.
  • My colleague David Delabassee held a GlassFish BoF recently at Devoxx UK.

Steve Millidge of the London GlassFish User Group very recently shared his thoughts on 4.0.1, the future of GlassFish and community contributions.

Many of you may also be aware of FishCAT. It stands for the GlassFish Community Acceptance Testing program. Through the program community members can help test early builds of GlassFish before the final release. Contributing to GlassFish through the FishCAT program is one of the easiest, most valuable and most effective ways in helping the Java EE and GlassFish communities move forward. We are now launching FishCAT for GlassFish 4.0.1. You can find the details for FishCAT for GlassFish 4.0.1 here.

The voice of the community has always been important to us and we need your help. Please do consider donating some of your time to the FishCAT program.

The Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c is well known in the database market as the main tool to manage the Oracle database. But Enterprise Manager is even more: it is the central management tool to manage the entire Oracle product stack – from hardware to software.

This workshop is primary targeted to administrators, project manager, and all IT staff, that are interested to get an "entry" into the topic middleware management with Enterprise Manager. The workshop will provide basic knowledge, it will give an overview of all kinds of middleware management tasks along the with the product- and service lifecycle.

In addition to that the trainers will suggest and discuss, how Oracle Enterprise Manger can be implemented within the enterprise, embedded into existing processes, based on lessons learned from various client scenarios.

Timing: for every location from 11:30am till 4:00pm

1. Overview – What is EM12c? – Monitoring – diagnose – automation – reporting

2. How do I adopt EM12c into the enterprise? – Requirements (technical & organizational) – integration ino existing processes 

3. First steps – EM 12c installed. What’s next? – distributing agents – configure components – integrating EM targets 

4. Monitoring & diagnose life praxis – starting with middleware monitoring – first steps to diagnose issues and bottlenecks 

5. Automation – configuration & compliance management – patching – provisioning and cloning of middleware software, applications provisioning 

6. Reporting – how to best use the embedded standard reporting – creation and distribution of customized reports  

7. Summary

Schedule

Last November after the announcement by Oracle that no future release beyond the 3.x version of GlassFish would have support from Oracle there were a lot of doom and gloom articles about GlassFish. I tried to put my view that this probably wasn’t the end of GlassFish but time would tell.

Why we need a Strong GlassFish
As the founder of a company that is vendor independent. I think it is imperative for the Java EE community that there is a strong vibrant GlassFish server. Having GlassFish out there as a viable production open source Java EE server drives competition. Competition drives innovation in competing products. Competition drives quality in competing products. Competition drives adoption through visibility and choice. If GlassFish fades then I’m afraid that the whole of Java EE fades. There will be no competitive incentive to drive innovation in WildFly, although I’m sure the RedHat engineers wouldn’t consciously drive down innovation and quality but competition naturally keeps them lean, mean and fast. If GlassFish in the future fails to deliver a good out of the box experience for Java EE 8 and beyond due to poor quality or poor performance then future Java EE adoption as a whole is threatened. This threatens Oracle WebLogic, RedHat JBoss EAP, IBM WebSphere sales as where are the developers to choose the big beasts for production?

Optimism for the Future

Over 6 months have passed and I’ve been trying to take stock of where we are. I’ve recently hosted a community Community Q&A session with Reza Rahman and the London GlassFish User Group and organised a BOF at Devoxx UK with David Delabassee to get the community involved in what is happening with GlassFish. We’ve watched the code archives and started our own builds. Read the complete article here.
