GlassFish Problems? Try This

If you’re running GlassFish in production it’s likely you are facing challenges due to the lack of support, lack of automation assistance, inability to quickly browse metrics, and the lack of modern security standards support – among other things!

Download our eBook to see if you recognize the common problems people experience with GlassFish in their production environments. It’s possible you didn’t think there was a viable alternative to GlassFish and that these issues were unavoidable. However, if you see yourself and your business in these issues, we want you to know there is another way!

  • GlassFish doesn’t have supported Docker Images
  • GlassFish is lacking critical server event alerts and notifiers
  • GlassFish is lacking some modern security standards
