Anahata Technologies Pty Ltd announced it will be defaulting to GlassFish as its application server on enterprise application development projects. As justified by Pablo Rodriguez, co-founder of the firm - "We have been working with GlassFish since 2010. We are very pleased with its stability, technical features, and fast startup time. GlassFish can be adopted with free open source license and our clients can acquire commercial support from Oracle if required at a later stage".
The company has been using Glassfish since version 2.0 (Java EE5) and it is currently migrating several web applications running on the earlier Sun Java System Application Server (J2EE1.4) to GlassFish v3 and Java EE 6.
Anahata uses GlassFish for web application development as well as for enterprise applications with a desktop interface such as Swing or JavaFX. Anahata’s desktop enterprise applications are deployed to GlassFish and launched via Java Web Start.
Originally a project of Sun Microsystems and currently hailing from the Oracle flagship, there has been several versions of GlassFish since its first release with each being progressively better. The most recent release was made on 17th July, 2012, and since it was meant to highlight certain exceptional features, it was dubbed as being a ‘micro’ by the company.
Being an open-sourced application server, GlassFish uses Apache Tomcat internally to deliver Java web components such as Servlets or JSP pages. Due to the inherent compatibility, any web application running on Tomcat could be upgraded to GlassFish. Software companies have been increasingly adopting glassfish due to try the latest JavaEE features and zero licensing costs.

Worldwide usage of Java led to the formation of Java Community Process and it is with the intention of suiting them that Java platform decided to specify a core set of features. Servers which conform to these specifications are known as Java Application Servers. Today there are Several Perth software companies offer Java development services.
