Employ the Java EE 8 compatible platform

Read about our commitment to Java

IBM remains committed to Java EE and was the first vendor to pass the Java EE 8 compatibility tests. IBM® WebSphere® Liberty delivers the latest Java EE technologies and MicroProfile features.

Liberty is designed to directly support Spring Boot applications and improve their deployment when used together in containers. Split the Spring Boot .jar file into the application and framework components so they can be independently layered and managed. App updates do not require a complete rebuild of the container.
