Sun MIcrosystems and the GlassFish community on Thursday announced the immediate availability of Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3, which is the latest release of Sun's commercial Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application server and its open source counterpart, GlassFish v3.
"In addition to delivering the tremendous enhancements available in Java EE 6, Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 provides features to help improve start-up time and reduce resource utilization plus fine-grained monitoring capabilities that offer improved observability for both developers and IT operators," said Karen Tegan Padir, vice president of MySQL and Software Infrastructure at Sun.
Padir went on to explain that people should think of GlassFish v3 as a pluggable runtime capable of hosting many types of containers, as well as enabling rapid, iterative development with multiple programming languages, and thus consolidate to a single platform or runtime.
Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 is part of the Sun GlassFish Portfolio, which is available now through a "flexible subscription-based pricing model starting at $999 per server."
