FOREST HILLS, Md., July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Apache Software Foundation is pleased to announce the release of Apache Geronimo Version 1.1, an open source J2EE application server from the Apache Geronimo project. This release continues the evolution of the Apache Geronimo server, adding new features and capabilities to a fully compliant J2EE container suitable for everything from development to enterprise deployments. Along with many new features, Apache Geronimo Version 1.1 introduces several structural changes designed to improve scalability, portability and overall organization. An easy-to-use configuration and management console provides access to the new innovative plug-in architecture, allowing advanced control over the rich modularity of the Apache Geronimo server as well as simplifying day-to-day operational management tasks. The project would also like to announce the release of "Little G" Version 1.1, a lightweight application server for applications that don't need the full feature set of J2EE. Perfect for web-service and SOA deployments, "Little G" brings the modularity, manageability and extensibility of Apache Geronimo to a lightweight, non-J2EE footprint. This flexible, easy-to-use, and easy-to-configure application server is built from best-of-breed open source components and is fully licensed under the Apache Software License, offering multiple benefits to organizations and their development teams. The software is available now for free download from the Apache Geronimo web site (http://geronimo.apache.org/).
