News: GlassFish 3.1.2 offers improved clustering, administration console

  1. Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2 is now available! The release improves upon its ease-of use features, flexibility and improved developer productivity. It can be downloaded from the usual glassfish.org page, or from OTN in the form of Oracle GlassFish Server (the commercial version). This new release offers:

    An improved administration console with:

    • Significantly faster start-up times over previous versions of Oracle GlassFish Server
    • Enhanced configuration of Java Message Service (JMS) clusters for fault tolerance and failover capabilities
    • Easier Load Balancer configuration for faster throughput and reduced latency
    • Enhanced security with SSL Encrypted traffic between the Domain Administration Server and remote instances


    Also included in this release:

    • Support for the WebSocket Protocol RFC 6445, enabling bi-directional communication between a client and server, adding a web-origin based security model for browsers
    • New! DCOM support. Windows users now have the flexibility to administer Glassfish clusters and instances remotely using SSH or DCOM.
    • New! Support for non-Multicast clustering. GlassFish High-Availability clustering is now possible in environments where multicast is disabled
    • Improved EclipseLink integration to enable data binding with JAX-WS. EclipseLink integration provides TopLink Grid support for using Coherence as a 2nd level data cache

    NetBeans IDE 7.1.1 supports GlassFish 3.1.2 with:

    • TopLink integration(Oracle GlassFish Server only)
    • DCOM support for remote instance management

  2. It might have a "minor" release number, but there are over 500 bug fixes in Glassfish 3.1.2! We think that this is the most stable release of Glassfish, ever.
