I've read about GlassFish and supporting J2EE 5, but I'm still unclear how it all fits together.

How are GlassFish and System Application Server Platform Edition 9 related?
Whats the difference between them?

What does each do and are they both required?


Sorry for all the questions. I'm a recent college grad, but I need to get up and going quickly.

Thanks,

Larry Eisenstein

Glassfish is the community implementation of a J2EE application server. It is hosted (along with many other good projects) at java.net - boomark this site! Sun Java System Application Server is Sun's offering built on top of Glassfish adding their own added value services.

This page at Sun explains it well.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
