SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. and the GlassFish(TM) community, today announced the immediate availability of GlassFish V2, the next major version of the open source Java(TM) Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 5 application server, and its commercially-supported counterpart, the Sun Java System Application Server 9.1. Building on the success of GlassFish V1, this release adds enterprise features such as clustering, advanced administration and record-breaking performance. In addition, the Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 offers new industry leading cost-efficient annual subscriptions for customers that need production quality support.
With GlassFish V2, customers no longer have to choose between open source and enterprise features. GlassFish V2 delivers on the major features that are required for scalable and mission critical deployments. Highlighted features include:
-- Best-in-class performance -- as evidenced in a July 2007 SPECjAppServer benchmark result, GlassFish V2 is the fastest open source Java EE 5
application server available today (http://blogs.sun.com/ontherecord/entry/the_glassfish_community_has_deliv...) .
-- Clustering -- enables enterprises to group servers for scalability and replicate data in-memory for fail over protection and high availability. -- Centralized administration -- manage application server clusters and application deployments from a centralized administration console. -- Project Metro -- allows for interoperability between Web services hosted on Java technology and Windows environments. -- Open ESB -- enables easy integration of Web services and existing enterprise resources. -- Java Business Integration (JBI) -- provides a standardized approach to delivering SOA using Web services. -- NetBeans(TM) IDE Integration -- enabling developers to deploy SOA applications by designing business process execution language (BPEL) workflows.
Sun has dramatically reduced the license and support costs of its commercially-supported Sun Java System Application Server, well below proprietary, enterprise alternatives. GlassFish V2 is available for download at: http://glassfish.java.net/ for Solaris(TM), Linux, Windows and Mac OS X -- bringing a production quality application server to all major software platforms. Learn more about Sun's commercially supported counterpart, the Sun Java System Application Server 9.1, including new cost-efficient annual subscriptions at http://www.sun.com/appserver.
"Together, GlassFish and NetBeans offer a feature-rich, low-cost platform for developing and delivering applications that meet the demanding needs of the enterprise," said Karen Tegan Padir, vice president, Software Infrastructure, Sun. "Many enterprises today are choosing open-source alternatives over expensive, proprietary infrastructure software and the GlassFish/NetBeans release represents a compelling option, especially when paired with an open-source operating system such as OpenSolaris or Linux."
In related news, future distributions of NetBeans, starting with the production release of NetBeans 6.0, will be offered under a dual license of the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) and the GNU General Public License version 2 (GPLv2).

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
