Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

OpenSSO reached 1000 members last week. As I mentioned in my blog entry at Superpatterns, this means that 1000 people have registered at opensso.dev.java.net to be able to participate in the mailing lists and forums, and to be able to file and track issues.

OpenSSO is on a real upward trend right now, with a whole bunch of events over the next few weeks, at the RSA Conference, MySQL Conference, European Identity Conference and more. See my blog entry for details, and come along if you can!

JavaEE and Rails Drive our Latest GlassFish Stories: MidwifeMate and Involver
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Two more adoption stories; they both use GFv2 and MySQL Server, but while one is a traditional Java EE story, the other is a Rails App ported from Mongrel.

MidwifeMate is a pretty traditional GlassFish adoption: they liked the JavaEE compliance, the ease of use of GlassFish and the multi-platform support.

The MidwifeMate application spans the web tier (JSF/Facelets), EJBs and JPA. They use Hibernate talking to a MySQL Server (http://mysql.com) and develop on Eclipse using the

The Sun Model for Open Source business is emerging
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Simon Phipps yesterday blogged about the emerging Sun Model for Open Source business:

As time has gone by, a clear “Sun Model” for open source business has been emerging, at least to my eyes. The summary of it is:

  • remove barriers to software adoption between download and deploy;
  • encourage a large and cohesive community of software deployers;
  • deliver, for a fee, the means to create value between deploy and scale, for those who need it.
  • Each software team at Sun

    ... The Best AppServer, New MQ Site, MySQL in NB, SocialSite and REST, Compliance Manager, OpenStorage and SSDs

    A compilation of today's news of interest:

    Any Best poll is always subjective in one way or another, so here are two more :-) First What's the Best AppServer - with several references to GlassFish. The second is a question from a prospective GF user that elicited a Very Nice Testimonial... which is a good time for a call for Adoption Stories; if you have any, drop us a mail at stories at sun dot com.

    Stésud, GlassFish and MySQL - A Multi-Million Sun Deal
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    This morning Sun issued a Press Release (Sun, Reuters) on a multi-million dollar deal with Belgium-based ERP vendor Stésud s.a.. Quoting from there:

    Java-based GlassFish was the first piece of the puzzle we identified to meet our stringent new infrastructure requirements. As soon as Sun acquired MySQL, we decided to employ it as our new database rather than Oracle. With Sun behind both GlassFish and MySQL, it was the best open source infrastructure combination for our needs and for our customers' operations.

    Computer Sweden has a couple of nice article on OpenSource, GlassFish and MySQL (http://MySQL.COM).

    The first CS Article covers the trend in IT software spending, specifically in the AppServer market, using GlassFish as an example of both Open Source momentum and Sun's success in that market.

    The article has an interview with the chief architect of Net Entertainment's (Overview,

    Evolution Happens!
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Back in 1998 one of the reasons my boss back then used for not doing something on a Linux box was
    "We don't have enough people with the skills to support that"

    Fast forward 10 years and the opposite is happening,
    I had a chat with a coworker the other day and we were wondering how we ended up having a windows box from a 3rd party vendor in our platform since no one in our organization knows how to support it.

    I imagine similar conversations in MySQL environments where people wonder who is going to support that one proprietary database that came a long with an oldskool vendor

    Evolution and Adoption is happening, change happens !!

    On ?On PHP? and version numbers
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Matt has a good post on the recent push to make people use PHP 5. He makes several good points, and I’m just jumping on the same bandwagon.. forcing a version # change, just because the engine works better is pointless. Going into the political arena a little bit, making people switch to PHP 5 is like changing CAFE standards, it won’t do a thing for the billions of cars already out there, and it won’t change the basic dependence on crude oil. It’s just a lot of hot air to make the choir sing to themselves, again.

    I’ve been running PHP 5 on my systems for the past 3 years, without any issues. Even some of the code I wrote in PHP 4, works flawlessly (with the same bugs) in PHP 5 as PHP4. Which brings me to the main point.. End Users don’t care or want to know what the engine is doing .
