Getting to know JEE5 (Jave Enterprise Edition 5)
A lot has been made over the latest Java "Enterprise" release (JEE5).
I'm no expert on the subject, but even at trade shows over year ago, I heard a lot of rumblings on the subjects around EBJ3 and the like.
This week, my friends over at developWorks put out an interesting article educating me on what the fuss is all about and even putting forth some ideas on what to expect in the next (JEE6) release.
On that note, in case you didn't hear the news about Apache Geronimo being one of the first application servers to certify on JEE5, you can read about that on theserverside. That puts Geronimo in an elite group of application servers. (Apache Geronimo is the technology upon which IBM bases WebSphere Application Server Community Edition.)
