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.
