The long awaited and the most looked upon version of GlassFish released today. GlassFish v3 fully implements Java EE 6 specification which means EJB 3.1, Servlet 3, JAX-RS, JPA 2, Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE, Bean validation, Java EE profiles and so on.

Great! Let's hope Oracle will not dump or famish GlassFish.

Seems unlikely to me, seeing that Glassfish is the RI.

I'd rather hope that Oracle doesn't stop developing the extra enterprise features (clustering, services, etc) for Glassfish V3/V4.

Oracle will certainly not maintain 3 different application servers.

Which means either Orion (OC4J) or Weblogic has to go...

Maybe the most interesting technologies of Weblogic have long ago been merged into OC4J, or maybe the other way around.

Since Glassfish is both the RI and open source, Oracle would be a fool to relinquish control of it. Don't forget that Glassfish draws a lot of attention. It implements Java EE 6 *now*, not tomorrow, not in 6 months, but *now*. Compare that with OC4J and Weblogic, which probably won't support Java EE 6 for some 2 years to come, maybe more. There's probably something very rotten in the software architecture of both these two implementations. What other explanation could there be for always taking so much time?

What does Oracle have to do to defeat this myth. Again and again they stated they will invest more into it then Sun currently does.

I will believe it when I will a release of Glassfish version 3.5 or version 4.0 by Oracle.
Not that Oracle does not like or want Glassfish but Oracle is trying to make money (and a lot if possible).

Well, ORACLE will push GlassFish forward even with more enthusiasm alongside with MySQL to compete with Red Hat in the JBoss market share.

Not all solutions need high end databases like DB2 and ORACLE DB and nor all solutions and business need WebSphere or WLS. But almost any serious development need some level of support and assurance which ORACLE will provide in both mid-level and high-end markets.
