Drop-in WARs

A version of Apache OpenEJB that can be dropped into any Tomcat 7.x install effectively creating your own Apache TomEE Web Profile or Apache TomEE Plus.

 

Source

Should you want to build any of the above binaries, this source bundle is the right one covers them all.

Examples

Currently, we have over 50 examples of various aspects of Java EE 6 ranging from EJB, CDI, JAX-RS and more. If you're learning Java EE, this is your secret weapon.
