Mysql & Glassfish app service instance

edited Mar 24, 2016 11:38AM in Java Cloud Service

Is it possible to create an instance for glassfish app server while I'm running oracle java cloud service?

I can see that weblogic 12c is the default app server and oracle as database.

Thank you.

    With Java Cloud Service, you get access to VM via ssh. So yes, technically you could install GlassFish application server in that VM. But I don't believe it is recommended and certified. In a way you will be defeating the purpose of JCS which is providing Java EE implementation via WebLogic server with all the cloud tooling automation(patching, scaling, backup/restore). Since GlassFish is also Java EE implementation, have you considered migrating your application to JCS (WebLogic)? The other option could be installing GlassFish on Oracle IaaS (compute).
