WebSphere Application Server Update and Direction
Stream:
WebSphere Application Server 1 (1)
Speakers:
Ian Robinson
Abstract:
2011 was a big year for WAS. WAS V8.0 delivered the industry's first commercial Java EE 6 AppServer in June 2011. In November we started a WAS V8.5 Early Program to showcase what's coming next - including a new lightweight profile of both the WAS runtime and our developer tools, support for Java SE 7, enhancements to OSGi application support and additional platform resiliency capabilities. 2012 will be a bigger year still. I'll talk about the recent updates and the directions these are taking WAS. I'll also talk about the new community facility for raising enhancement requests and voting on these.
