FishCAT Introduction (For first time FishCAT's or people needing more info)

FishCAT is a GlassFish Community Acceptance Testing program. The main goal of this program is to provide opportunity to community to significantly influence the quality of the GlassFish as well as to get early feedback on stability and usability through community involvement in GlassFish Beta testing cycle.

This new phase of FishCAT will 'reward' testers very closely by a clearly defined point system. On every new phase of FishCAT the points will be set to zero, so every tester is on a level playing field. So come and join FishCAT, you have the opportunity to better GlassFish and have even more fun doing it.
