Specifications and API documentation

The WebSphere® Application Server product supports various industry standards. This topic lists the specifications and application programming interface (API) documentation supported in current and previous product releases.

Components

Support Note:
  • The Version 8.5 column in the tables lists the latest specification level that the product supports.
  • However, support for specifications is compatible with earlier versions of the product; the Version 8.5 product supports all specifications that are listed for Version 6.0 through Version 8.5. For example, for any application type, the Version 8.0 product supports Java EE 5 and 6 and J2EE 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4.
  • The word New with a specification indicates that the product first supported the specification in that product version.

(*) Based on the Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) specification, enterprise beans are Java components that typically implement the business logic of Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications as well as access data. Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) specifications for a given release require support of all prior API levels.

(EJB) entity beans have been stabilized since WebSphere Application Server Version 7.0. There are no further enhancements to this technology, but this technology is still part of the product.

EJBDeploy has been deprecated in WebSphere Application Server version 8.5, and may be removed from the product in the future. EJBDeploy is no longer required for session beans, but is required for EJB 2.x and 1.x entity beans. If EJBDeploy is removed, it would still be available external to the product and entity beans would still be supported by the product.
