Oracle abandons Commercial Support for Glassfish !

I could not believe it when I read this in my daily serving of IT news. But it is the truth, Oracle will stop the (commercial) support for Glassfish in 2016 !
I remember a)  the full blown announcements during the take-over from SUN they would continue with Glassfish and b) people questioning it, the later should be right now. Ultimately, even Oracle saying they would continue with the community edition, means Glassfish will be dead, the core team will shrink and Glassfish becomes a hobby in order to maintain the reference EE implementation (to control the other players). They killed OpenOffice, OpenSolaris, Hudson CI (pretty much). I spent a lot of time with Glassfish and right now rolling it out to customers who actually expect commercial support, this back-stabs my efforts in the last few years being a Glassfish fan.

Dear Oracle, I will not continue with WebLogic  Application Server (another closed product), but swing over to JBoss (for which I did some compatibility tests for our applications anyway the last 2 years)

So Long, and Thanks for All the (Glass)Fish !
