We are excited to announce the release of Apache TomEE 1.5. The volume of feedback on the 1.0.0 Final drove such an impressive number of fixes and features into TomEE that the release number has been updated to reflect the changes.
The team is proud to announce certification of a new Apache TomEE stack that includes the Web Profile plus JAX-RS for RESTful Web Services. The new 'TomEE JAXRS' distribution shows TomEE's commitment to progressing its certification efforts beyond the Web Profile and is a great alternative to the TomEE Plus distribution. See the comparison for a view of all Apache TomEE distributions.
Another great feature is the extended support for database connection pools. In addition to the previously supported Apache Commons-DBCP, the 1.5 release adds transaction support to the native Apache Tomcat and BoneCP connection pools. The two additional pools offer great alternatives to applications under heavy load. JMX instrumentation and statistics have also been added generically to all pools and provide a great level of monitoring and management.
Other major features include deploy-time enhancement for JPA Entities via Apache OpenJPA, support including JPA providers in webapps, ability to mock and inject mocks in unit tests and a powerful new TomEE Maven Plugin which can provision servers, install libraries, deploy webapps and more.
We’d like to thank everyone who gave feedback and contibuted to improve Apache TomEE on a daily basis!
