GlassFish @ Utah JUG Summer 2008 - Trip Report

Posted by arungupta on July 18, 2008 at 7:08 AM PDT

I presented on GlassFish at Utah
JUG
yesterday,  href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/resource/confs/glassfish-ujug08.pdf">slides
are available. The topic provided insight into href="http://glassfish.dev.java.net">GlassFish v2,
the current production version, and href="http://glassfish.dev.java.net/v3">GlassFish v3
- the upcoming modular, embeddable & extensible
version. The slides have data on leading adoption indicators on how
GlassFish momentum. There were close to 100 attendees and the href="http://www.ujug.org/web/content/view/80/26/">list of
sponsors is certainly impressive ;-)



Here are the list of demos:

  • GlassFish v2
    • href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/screncast_ws7_secure_and_reliable">GlassFish
      v2 Web services Development & Deployment
    • href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/glassfish_on_eclipse_ganymede">GlassFish

    • href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/glassfish_on_eclipse_ganymede">Eclipse
      Integration

There are very few developer meets where I've not met a href="http://hudson.dev.java.net">Hudson
(Extensible continuous integration engine) user. I had good
conversation with some folks about some of the missing pieces around
Hudson and will follow up with Kohsuke on that. I also got to meet href="http://weblogs.java.net/blog/mriem/">Manfried Riem
- the local Java Champion. And it was great to know that Allen Day (one
of the UJUG board members) is already a GlassFish evangelist - see the
first picture with GlassFish sticker on his laptop ;)

As mentioned, the href="http://wiki.glassfish.java.net/Wiki.jsp?page=V3FunctionalSpecs">new

send us feedback on dev@glassfish
and more details href="http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/entry/calls_for_feedback_on_glassfish">here.



After all day back-to-back meetings, it was good unwinding at a concert
in the Salt
Lake City Downtown park - thanks to href="http://weblogs.java.net/blog/haroldcarr/">Harold
(actually his wife who pointed us to the concert :) href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Bird">Andrew
Bird was performing there and enjoy a short clip of his
performance:




It's always good to meet colleagues and old friends!
