This AMI is installed only with runtime component of the GlassFish ESB v2.1 ie. GlassFish 2.1 server + jbi components, with default configurations, for details on port numbers & credentials check the /root/ec2sun/GFESBV21_README. The applications created using the designtime component of the GlassFish ESB v2.1 can be deployed in the EC2 instance using admin console. Port ‘4848’ has to be opened in EC2 instance to access the admin console.

Sun Microsystems announced the release of Sun GlassFish Portfolio, the open source Web platform based on GlassFish. Built on open source projects including Apache Tomcat, Ruby, PHP, Liferay Portal, OpenESB and GlassFish, the Sun GlassFish Portfolio packages these components into an open source platform with range of support and services options, from basic patch services to 24×7 mission critical support.
Why the announcement is significant for GlassFish ESB and OpenESB project?
With today’s announcement of the GlassFish Portfolio, Sun Microsystems has also announced the commercial support options for GlassFish ESB (or Sun GlassFish Enterprise Service Bus), including a pricelist. For many companies not withstanding the effort in the community, it’s a requirement to have commercial support before considering using an open source product. So with today’s announcement, we should see an acceleration in OpenESB adoption, and as a consequence, also in OpenESB development! Good news for OpenESB!!!
The GlassFish Portfolio includes the GlassFish Application Server along with other components. To view the entire list go here.

Its a milestone event for OpenESB and milestone 1 for GlassFish ESB.
GlassFish ESB is a binary distribution of OpenESB. It consists of subset of the components in OpenESB. Sun will provide commercial support for GlassFish ESB. With this, a big obstacle in the adoption of OpenESB has been removed! Click on the image to download GlassFish ESB. For more information, see https://open-esb.dev.java.net/glassfishesb/.

Most people associate Open ESB with enabling SOA. While thats true, only a few people know that Open ESB also enables Event-Driven Architectures (EDA)! The Intelligent Event Processor, or IEP is the component that does this. IEP is an open source Complex Event Processing (CEP) and Event Stream Processing (ESP) engine.
