Arun Gupta of Sun recently gave a presentation on JEE and Glassfish at the Silicon Valley Codecamp '09. View the slides here
. "This session presents the GlassFish™ Tools Bundle for Eclipse, which can be used for creating Java EE 6 applications and configuring, deploying, and monitoring the GlassFish application server."
"Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) builds on the solid foundation of Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) and is the industry standard for implementing enterprise-class service-oriented architecture (SOA) and next-generation web applications. The SDKs contain Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server, previously named Sun Java System Application Server, and provide support for Java EE 5 specifications."
I wonder how many of you are using JEE and Glassfish. For what applications have you chosen this architecture? This presentation discusses integration of Python, Ruby and Groovy with JEE. Could you share your case studies here in brief and let us know how you're working with these languages together. What's the performance like? Is it easy or difficult?
