"It's our intent to have a premium version of the JDK." Said in addition to the open source JDK. #qconsf
The official story on "premium" are not "premium JVMs" but rather "premium programs" mentioned in http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/173782
"Premium Offerings" != "Premium JVM"
The official Press Release from Oracle in this topic came during JavaOne. Quoting from http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/173782
* The Oracle JDK and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) will continue to be available as free downloads, with no changes to the existing licensing models.
* Premium offerings such as JRockit Mission Control, JRockit Real Time, Java for Business and Enterprise Support will continue to be made available for an additional charge.
GlassFish - Transactions? Jobs Postings?
(Pelegri-Llopart said...) "although it lagged JBoss, IBM's WebSphere, and Oracle's WebLogic in absolute number of transactions"..
Hi Gavin - I believe you are refering to a chart I presented about job postings. The slides were not clearly labeled but that was the last overlay of the adoption section. Commenting on that slide I mentioned that although the growth of GF jobs (at Indeed.com) is significantly faster that that of competitors, the absolute number was still lower than them, .
There are several likely explanations for that, from plain "jobs are a lagging indicator for adoption" to the ease of use of GlassFish and strong standards support that means existing engineers can just switch from Tomcat/JBoss/WAS/WLS to GF.
BTW, later in the week we posted a relevant report on adoption from Ohlo.net  that indicates that the majority of the new Open Source projects are targeting GlassFish. Your readers may want to check that report.
