Back in May at JavaOne, Sun’s President Jonathan Schwartz and Canonical Founder and President Mark Shuttleworth – creator of the Ubuntu distribution of GNU/Linux – promised to do a lot of business in the coming months. Their promise is holding quite true six months later. Sun and Canonical revealed Nov. 8 that the open-source Java Enterprise Edition 5 application server (specifically, the GlassFish Community reference implementation) is now certified and available to run on Ubuntu Server Edition, which was released on June 1.

Glassfish is posibly the only production ready JEE 5 app server available so far. It is better licensed then JBoss too. Good move from Ubuntu, especially against Red Hat.
