We use GlassFish in a productive environment. On this server we deploy the following administrative applications: human development, income, budgets, patrimonial control system, income (returns), cost systems, system of obligatory registers, system of embargoes and control of supplies, economic benefits, clinic, treasury, administration and follow-up of contracts, service tickets, service system and transportation maintenance, infrastructure and maintenance system, follow-up of contracts, measurement of internal and external satisfaction of users.

All the support departments of the substantive units make use of the systems, throughout 14 locations nationwide.

Basically, the core part of the internal operation is managed with the Oracle Glassfish Server platform.
  • The product offers Java EE support.
  • As the version supported by Oracle we have an extensive documentation, the Oracle GlassFish server online documentation library, patches ,and support from the supplier.
  • Ease of use through the administration console.
  • Integration with the NetBeans development interface.
  • When we use the versions of GlassFish Server that were just released to the market, it causes bugs to appear. While there are workarounds to solve them in most cases, the amount of time to solve them is significant. Therefore, I would advise waiting for it to be a little more stable and for a few months to pass before proceeding to an update of a productive environment.
Oracle GlassFish server is suitable for productive environments thanks to the fact that it has a tool called Performance Tuner, which allows us to diagnose the root cause of performance problems, as long as a certain level of experience is already available.

Glassfish is well suited for large-scale cluster deployments and integrates well with F5 load balancers.
