Updated GlassFish v3 REST interface
[URL="http://blogs.sun.com/aquatic/entry/manage_glassfish_using_browser_rest"] [IMG]http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/resource/GlassFishRESTinterface-small.png[/IMG] [/URL] This is yet another update on the work going on in [URL="http://glassfish.org"]GlassFish v3[/URL] to provide a REST interface for management and monitoring. This time, Rajeshwar announces the [URL="http://blogs.sun.com/aquatic/entry/manage_glassfish_using_browser_rest"]availability of HTML rendering[/URL]. This makes for a nice and simple interface for navigating through the rich set of monitoring data as well as for reading and modifying the GlassFish configuration, including deploying applications. [URL="http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/tags/rest+monitoring"]Previous entries[/URL] introduce the feature and cover the role played by [URL="http://jersey.dev.java.net"]Jersey[/URL].
If you want to try it for yourself, make sure you use a recent GlassFish v3 build ([URL="http://blogs.sun.com/aquatic/entry/manage_glassfish_using_browser_rest"]see Rajeshwar's entry[/URL] or wait for promoted build 60) [URL="http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-4495/ablvp?a=view"]enable monitoring[/URL] (set the appropriate sub-system level to LOW or HIGH). Also of interest is Ludo's recent and short [URL="http://beta.parleys.com/#id=358&slide=1&state=state_player"]presentation from Jazoon[/URL] which introduces the REST interface feature and shows how to use a JavaFX client to use it (includes a demo too).
For the Mac OS users out there, this does not work in Safari because [I][URL="http://www.newmediacampaigns.com/page/webkit-team-admits-accept-header-error"]Safari prefers XML over HTTP[/URL][/I]. So use Firefox instead. Of course you still have the option of using either cURL or wget which I'd argue makes GlassFish quite cloud-friendly (no ssh required).
