Free Article: RESTful GlassFish Monitoring and Management
"IT is all about streamlining and automation, so it is somewhat ironic that we developers still tolerate repetitive and boring manual tasks, such as deployment. Also, our ignorance about easily accessible information for application servers, such as monitoring data, is surprising."
Don't worry, only the first paragraph in the article RESTful GlassFish Monitoring and Management sounds esoteric :-).
Also check out the embeddable deployer https://github.com/AdamBien/loadr#loadr introduced in a recent post.
Feedback is, as always, highly appreciated!
