Geronimo 1.0 released
In case you haven't already heard, the much-anticipated version 1.0 of Apache Geronimo is now available for download. Dave Klavon lists "some of the key functions delivered in this maiden release" (as well as links to more info) in the dW blog dedicated to Geronimo.
Want to learn more? developerWorks offers a section dedicated to Geronimo project resources, and has published quite a bit of Geronimo-related material. Of particular interest for newbies is our "Get started with Geronimo" article, which provides a good overview and will get you "up and running with Geronimo in five minutes flat."
Note also that IBM's own WebSphere Application Server Community Edition is a lightweight J2EE application server built on Apache Geronimo.
