Eclipse Foundation and GlassFish community

Posted by ludo on March 17, 2008 at 1:21 PM PDT


I just love it when things are aligned. Today, it is about Eclipse and
Sun, or I should say Eclipse Foundation and the GlassFish community.

Read it at href="">
 : EclipseLink will be used in GlassFish V3
Application Server (Java EE 6) and it will be the reference
implementation for JPA
(Java Persistence API) 2.0.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to be the first press release
ever done mentioning those 2 names: Eclipse Foundation and Sun
Microsystems. If you are an Eclipse user, I hope you have noticed the
*only* company name that is displayed in the Eclipse splash screen. If
not, pay attention the next time you see the screen...

As you might know, I've been involved a lot in the J2EE and Java EE
support in NetBeans, and honestly, I can tell this is one of the best
support you can get for Java EE developers. And I have also been
involved in the GlassFish (V1, V2 and V3) plugin for Eclipse as well as
the jMaki plugin for Eclipse. It is good to be able to reach as many
developers as possible and give them access to one of the best
application server out there.

This week, EclipseCon
conference is happening in Santa Clara, and Carla Mott and I will be
speaking about GlassFish V2, GlassFish V3, jMaki  and
Eclipse:  See href="">

Our talk is Thurday, March 20th at 10:30 am Grand BallRoom F: Eclipse:
Enterprise Apps and Rich Front-end using GlassFish and jMaki.

If you are not familiar about the GlassFish Application Server support
in Eclipse, please read these pages:

Both the GlassFish plugin and the jMaki plugin are being updated this
week (tomorrow?) for a better GlassFish V3 support and a brand new
jMaki 1.1 beta support. We are just doing the final testing today.

Enjoy, and as always, feedback is welcome,
