Genesis of a "How to"

There are more efficient technologies like RESTFul Web Services nevertheless Java EE still relies on such protocols. In many cases portability and interoperability between containers of different vendors it's just a glorified dream. Years ago I tried to set up a IIOP call in a network between two instances of GlassFish and it was a nightmare!

Bye Alexis

Some days ago I read this post. I wrote to Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine saying I'm sorry for his resignation.This is a great loss for Oracle and Glassfish but I assume he's done the sensible thing.
