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
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/).
