Something fishy: Roller in the Glassfish Update Center

As my colleagues Manveen Kaur and Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine are reporting, Roller is now available via the Glassfish Update Center. Manveen explains how to get started: just download and install Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 and run $GLASSFISH_HOME/updatecenter/bin/updatetool. Too lazy for all that? Alexis has put together a brief slide-show that shows just how easy the process is.

There are a couple of caveats. First, this is an Early Access (EA) release and is based on a snapshot of the Roller 4.0 code-base from about 1.5 months ago. We put it through a couple of rounds of testing, but it doesn't have all the bug fixes found in the recent Roller 4.0 RC releases. Second, this release targets only Glassfish (obviously) and JavaDB. Still, it's a great way to try Glassfish, the Update Center and Roller.

What's up with the fishes and the mysterious "Welcome to SocialFish" seen in the slide show? I've already said everything I can say about that ;-)


When following the instructions at "http://blogs.sun.com/alexismp/resource/install-roller-gfv2.html" it says that there should be an update center item "Weblog server for GlassFish". When I do this, I get an item "Social Software for GlassFish", but not the actual Weblog. Has this been removed from the update center?

You should ask Alexis this question. I am no longer with Sun and as far as I know, Sun is not supporting "Social Software for Glassfish" any more. I recommend you install Apache Roller 4.0.1 instead. - Dave
