Paul Sterk just announced the availability of the final version of Glassfish v3! I just tried it out and it really rocks! Download, extract, start domain, running! Even PHP Applications are easily possible: I will look further into this this weekend!
Since today, I’m a commiter in Scrumshark – the Social Project Management Tool. One of my student groups in Advanced Software Engineering already are using this tool and I will try to extend it with some nice and helpful features.
If you, like me, like to try out Glassfish v3 with its build in support for JavaEE6 and JSF 2, don’t even try to use the Glassfish v3 Preview Edition available on the Glassfish website. Instead, use one of the nightly builds http://download.java.net/glassfish/v3/nightly/ You will save yourself a lot of headaches.
As Lincoln Baxter posted recently in the PrettyFaces-Blog, the upcomming PrettyFaces 2.0.3 will include support for JSF-Validators within PrettyFaces, allowing to reuse the already existing Validators infrastructure for Pretty URL Mapping (SEO Stuff etc.) Nice one Lincoln!

Because finally someone showed interest in helping me with my Spring Security JSF 2.0 Taglib, I created my first project at Google Code. The homepage of the project is still located on my server, but maybe I’ll move that too as soon as I find out how to do it.
