Sun May 28, 2006 10:51 pm


IBM WebSphere® Application Server Community Edition is a free lightweight Java™ 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) application server built on Apache Geronimo, the open source application server project of the Apache Software Foundation. It harnesses the latest innovations from the open-source community and provides a readily accessible and flexible foundation for building Java applications. WebSphere Application Server Community Edition helps you accelerate your development and deployment efforts by offering technology that is quick to download and easy to use.

Key Features of WebSphere Application Server Community Edition version 1.0.1
** Denotes new in version 1.0.1

Additional Platform Support **
 Now offering support for Linux on POWER architecture and AIX 5.3 ML4 or later, in addition to Linux and Windows on IA32.
J2EE 1.4-compatible
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition (WAS CE) is fully J2EE 1.4 compatible with support for both IBM and Sun JDKs.
Integration with Apache Tomcat
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition pre-integrates Tomcat and extends it with the features and services developers need most.
Built on Apache Geronimo 1.0 **
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition v1.0.1 is built with Apache Geronimo 1.0. More information on the open source pieces that make up WAS CE can be found here.
Compatible with Spring, Hibernate, and Struts
 Popular frameworks and technologies help you create applications quickly.
Web tier clustering and load balancing **
 Web tier clustering improves reliability for the types of applications you write most often. This clustering enables you to scale and customize (up or down) according to business needs. Load balancing can be achieved when used in conjunction with the Apache HTTP Server and mod_jk.
Directory-based hot deployment and remote deployment **
 Flexible deployment options, including directory-based hot deploy, both local and remote command line, and console and IDE-based deployment, enable you to rapidly deploy in multiple configurations — as stand-alone or as endpoints in a WebSphere SOA infrastructure.
Eclipse plug-in with WebSphere Application Server family portability **
 The plug-in for WebSphere Application Server Community Edition helps you take advantage of the Eclipse technology-based Web tools platform. It offers a simple development environment for creating, deploying, and debugging your WebSphere Application Server Community Edition applications. New in this version, J2EE profiling to ensure that the applications you create are portable and deliver increased flexibility.
Clear path to advanced capabilities
 Your investment in WebSphere Application Server Community Edition increases in value over time as the open-source community continues to mature and innovate. Also, WebSphere Application Server Community Edition gives you access to the comprehensive and proven portfolio of WebSphere middleware products. As your needs grow over time, IBM can provide a clear path to advanced capabilities such as SOA through WebSphere Application Server configurations.
Integrated to help save you time and money
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition includes the baseline components you need to deploy an application in one integrated package. To help ensure that the components work together, IBM continually tests and tracks the interdependencies between them. This eliminates the need for you to undertake this tedious and time-consuming task. The Cloudscape database is also integrated with WebSphere Application Server Community Edition for a full-featured, robust, small-footprint database server that you can use during development and deployment.
Robust J2EE, V1.4 programming model
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition uses technology from Apache Geronimo, the open-source application server project at the Apache Software Foundation. Apache Geronimo brings together best-of-breed technologies across the broader open-source community to support J2EE specifications, including:
Apache Tomcat to support servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP)
OpenEJB to support Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB)
ActiveMQ to support Java Message Service (JMS)
MX4J to support Java Management Extensions (JMX)
TranQL to support Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
Apache Axis to support Web services
HOWL (ObjectWeb) to support Java Transaction API (JTA)
Database support
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition comes integrated with Cloudscape database software. Built from the open-source Apache Derby database, Cloudscape delivers a robust, small-footprint database server with full transactional capability that is simple to deploy and helps reduce the cost of Web-based and embedded applications. This integration helps save time, effort, and money because you do not have to select, pay for, install, and configure a database for applications that run on WebSphere Application Server Community Edition. For external database access, WebSphere Application Server Community Edition also provides driver support for IBM DB2 Universal Database?, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL.
Run-time customization
 Tailor the application server to your needs and improve performance while saving system resources. You can selectively enable and disable specific components of WebSphere Application Server Community Edition at run time to improve efficiencies.
User management
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition features centralized user management by unifying all applications running on the platform under a shared, standards-based security framework based on Java Authorization Contract for Containers (JACC). This capability virtually eliminates the complexity of setting up and maintaining separate user-management systems for your applications. WebSphere Application Server Community Edition also supports Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) authentication against directory servers.
Centralized configuration and control
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition delivers an easy-to-use, administrative-console application that lets you manage and monitor the application server and related resources.
Liberal product license
 WebSphere Application Server Community Edition, released under the IBM License Agreement for Non-Warranted Programs (ILAN), can be used at no charge in development, testing, and production. You can make unlimited copies of the software for internal use. And because WebSphere Application Server Community Edition uses open-source technology as its underlying foundation, you have the freedom to obtain the source for these open-source components. Should the need arise, the ILAN allows you to make modifications to these open-source components, and use the modified components with your internal use of the WebSphere Application Server Community Edition.
Convenient access to code
 The product binaries are available on the IBM Web site and links to the source code for the open-source components of the product are available from the IBM Web site. You can choose to selectively install specific components, such as JDK. A wizard-driven installation application guides you through the installation.
