    Anyone interested in a GlassFish update might check out a java.sun.com
    interview(http://java.sun.com/developer/Meet-Eng/sahoo/) with Sun
    GlassFish developer Sahoo who, among other things, is currently
    involved in enabling GlassFish to run on the OSGi platform. He's also
    writing a portability checking tool for Java EE applications.

    Some take-home messages:

    The GlassFish team is implementing an OSGi-based microkernel
    architecture. GlassFish v3 will soon be delivered as a set of OSGi
    bundles along with Felix, an open-source OSGi framework. Users are
    free to choose their own OSGi framework as well.

    By modularizing GlassFish using OSGi, developers will have the option
    of composing the stack differently to cater to the needs of different
    classes of applications. It will be easier to add extra modules in
    GlassFish as users require. GlassFish will be far more efficient in
    using system resources, as only modules used by an application will be
    loaded. Life-cycle management of GlassFish will be easier, making it a
    candidate to be embedded in other applications. Sahoo emphasized that
    his team is strongly committed to achieving all of this while
    maintaining backward compatibility.

    And looking ahead:

    GlassFish will be implementing the Java EE 6 specification soon. They
    are making GlassFish available to non-Java programmers such as JRuby
    and Groovy users, along with exploring deployment of priority-aware
    complex event-processing applications in GlassFish.

    GlassFish lovers, check it out!
