Latest free WebSphere App Server is out

WebSphere Application Server Community Edition, the free, IBM-supported Java Enterprise Edition environment based on Apache Geronimo, reached version 1.1 this week.

Among the changes are new platforms, new installers, and Java 1.5 support… and of course it is based on Geronimo 1.1, so there is a whole lot of other new goodness such as the plugin architecture (see this developerWorks article for more).

I’m looking forward to giving it a test drive, particularly since it should enable me to administer JMS resources through the web console now – hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to play with it properly early next month, after one of my current projects is completed.

Full documentation is available online.
