Last November after the announcement by Oracle that no future release beyond the 3.x version of GlassFish would have support from Oracle there were a lot of doom and gloom articles about GlassFish. I tried to put my view that this probably wasn't the end of GlassFish but time would tell.
Why we need a Strong GlassFish
Optimism for the Future
- Many of the core Java EE libraries will eventually be the core Java EE implementations in WebLogic so will require development and bug fixing.
- There is no intention to turn GlassFish into something like the old J2EE SDK
- Security fixes to GlassFish are still a priority
- GlassFish 5 development to align with Java EE 8 is planned.
Feed the Fish!
