Would
you like to influence the quality of GlassFish ?



The GlassFish
Quality Group
is
starting href="http://wiki.glassfish.java.net/Wiki.jsp?page=GlassFishCommunityAcceptanceTestFishCAT">Community
Acceptance Testing - a community based testing of upcoming href="http://glassfish.org/v3">GlassFish v3. This
is your chance to provide an early feedback on stability and usability
of GlassFish v3.



GlassFish v3 is href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/totd_36_deploy_osgi_bundles">modular
(OSGi-compliant), href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/embeddable_glassfish_in_action_servlet">embeddable
(runs in-VM) and href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/tags/rubyonrails+gem">extensible
(hosts non-Java apps) currently under development in the GlassFish
community. This is the next major vesion of GlassFish v2.



It's a simple 3-step process:

  • Download GlassFish v3 Prelude FishCAT Candidate Build
    (coming soon)
  • Run your applications
  • File href="https://glassfish.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectIssues">issues
    for any unexpected/unpleasant behavior

The details about the process/dates are available href="http://wiki.glassfish.java.net/Wiki.jsp?page=GlassFishCommunityAcceptanceTestFishCAT">here.

FAQ.



You might wonder, what's in it for you:

  • The bugs filed by FishCAT participants will get special
    attention from the engineering team. It will ensure that your
    application will continue to run smoothly once the final build is
    released.
  • Gain points for filing bugs / reviewing docs.
    These points are published on GlassFish Quality Portal giving
    you the brag rights. And who knows there might be some thing else in
    store ;-)
  • By testing more, you are doing a community service because
    a good product benefits everybody :)
