Apache Roller 5.0 Release Candidate 3 is Out

It's been a little while but there is a new release candidate for Apache Roller 5 out and it was certainly worth the wait.  Release Candidate 3 adds support for running Roller inside a Java Enterprise Edition 6 application server container like GlassFish 3, JBoss 6, and WebSphere 8.  (Roller 5.0.0 RC 3 Release Announcement).

The roller 5.0RC3 download site contains an updated Installation Guide, User Guide, and Template Guide in PDF format in addition to source code and binary downloads for installation into Tomcat, JBoss, or a JavaEE app server.


WebSphere Application Server v8.0 is in Beta

I don't typically write about WebSphere but it is a pretty big player in the java application server space and a couple of days ago, IBM released WebSphere Application Server v8.0 as beta.  Not intended at all for production deployments, this version does give us something to play with.  WebSphere App Server v8 looks like it is IBM's first JEE6 implementation, supporting the following JEE6 features:

  • Enterprise JavaBeans 3.1
  • Java Persistence API (JPA) 2.0
  • JavaServer Faces (JSF) 2.0
  • JavaServer Pages (JSP) 2.2
  • Servlet 3.0
  • Java EE Connector Architecture 1.6

A full list of capabilities is on the WebSphere App Server v8.0 Overview page.  The WebSphere App Server v8.0 Download page lists downloadable binaries for Windows, Linux, AIX, HP-UX, zOS, and Solaris.
