Sun "Power of JBI and OSGI"

Sun platform strategy based on JBI and OSGi is beginning to deliver interesting results. Slowly but surely.

The future version of Glassfish, Version 3 (https://glassfish.dev.java.net/downloads/v3-techPreview-1.html) is promising. You can already use it as a "Tomcat" like container to test the difference with version 2. Very quick to start, capable of running only what is required and making dynamic loading of other services. Glassfish V3 should become a best of breed Application Server in 2009.

Next version of OpenESB, based on current Project fuji (https://fuji.dev.java.net/), is also very promising. You can within a web browser (I'm not lying) defines your integration process, use some already available adapters and make it run. Lightweight you said?

Finally, the new version of Netbeans IDE 6.5 is more than great and complements very well the platform.

Sun should be providing a very good application server and integration platform in 2009.
