Introducing IBM WebSphere Application Server…

January 22, 2011

IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Community Edition (Community Edition) is a member of the IBM WebSphere Application Server family. Community Edition is a lightweight Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application server built on Apache Geronimo, the open source application server project of the Apache Software Foundation. The community using Community Edition consists of all sorts of people and companies, who design, develop, deploy, or utilize Java EE solutions. It is supported on the following platforms: Windows, AIX, Linux, Solaris, i/OS and z/os.

If you intend to run critical applications that require high availability, and want sophisticated management console and tooling capabilities to help you deploy and debug your Java EE applications, then you should explore other IBM WebSphere Application Server products. For example, if you require scalability, enterprise-wide deployment, functional depth and robustness, or if you have high transaction volumes, want autonomic application deployment, or business goal-based application prioritization, look into WebSphere Application Server or WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment. If your company has a mainframe, you may also consider WebSphere Application Server for z/OS®.

WebSphere Application Server V7 offers enhanced support for standards, emerging technology and a choice of development frameworks that simplifies programming models to increase developer productivity. Integral tooling makes the most of existing technology skills for rapid time-to-value.

  • Java EE 5 certification, EJB 3.0 support and Java Persistence API (JPA) and Java Development Kit (JDK) 6.0, deliver simplified programming models for building reusable persistent object
  • Web services support, including JAX-WS, SOAP 1.2, MTOM, XOP, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Trust, WS-SecureConversation, WS-Policy, and Kerberos Token Profile, simplifies interoperability in mixed environments
  • Web 2.0 support (via Feature Pack for Web 2.0) extends Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) by connecting external web services, internal SOA services, and Java Platform Enterprise Edition (JEE) objects into highly interactive Web application interfaces
  • Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) servlets simplify development with standardized support for interactive user sessions involving real-time multimedia elements such as voice, video, instant messaging and online games
  • Spring has certification for use with WebSphere Application Server to enable module-based programming
  • Single-step installation and configuration, wizards and default configurations, and easy- to-navigate documentation that includes extensive use of sample code help ensure fast and smooth start-up
  • WebSphere Application Server Feature Packs simplify the adoption of new standards such Services Component Architecture (SCA), and improve consumability by enabling users to selectively take advantage of new standards and features while maintaining a more stable internal release cycle

Well , that’s wraps up the introduction of IBM Websphere Application Server…To download it , here’s the download link (p/s:- you have to register first in order to download the software…)


The installation is quite straight forward..I presume you guys will not have any difficulties in installing it in your operating system…

For this week I am busy studying about Perl and MySQL…Also got a new Dreamweaver CS5 to try it out….See you guys next week….
