Release Notes: This release is Java EE 5 certified and provides you the best (and currently most stable) release of JOnAS 5. Since JOnAS 5.0, the major component dependencies (such as EasyBeans, Tomcat, Joram, CXF, and Hibernate) have been upgraded to include the latest bugfixes. A lot of issues have been resolved and particular attention was paid to the new administration Web console's user experience. These last months were completely dedicated to the stabilization of the Java EE platform, testing it extensively with multiple OSes and JVMs in order to guarantee a steady release as much as possible.
Release Notes: This release uses J2EE 1.4. It supports EJB 2.1, J2EE CA 1.5 with a JMS connector for JORAM, and JACC 1.0, embeds Tomcat 5 or Jetty 5, and has a J2EE management model that is exposed through the MEJB. It integrates JOTM as the transaction manager and provides a new classloader hierarchy. A lightweight database is now embedded, making it a ready to use application server, at least for "non db intensive" applications.
Release Notes: This is the last major release on the way towards J2EE 1.4. It already provides some J2EE 1.4 features such as Web Services deployment and an EJB 2.1 Timer Service early implementation. This version also supports JDO by integrating the ObjectWeb SPEEDO JDO implementation and provides Certificate-based authentication with the corresponding JAAS loginModule. A JDBC resource adapter (J2EE Connector) is provided for integrating JDBC drivers, enabling Prepared Statements pooling. The new Management console(JonasAdmin) is now complete and integrates Tomcat management.
Release Notes: Support for multiple communication protocols was implemented via the CAROL framework. There is legacy database support for CMP2.0 (JORM, MEDOR). New security features (such as JAAS LoginModules) were added. EJB Clustering, a new management console GUI, a Client Container, and Eclipse and JBuilder plugins were added.
Release Notes: Web Services support was added through AXIS 1.1 integration. The installation directory (JONAS_ROOT) and servers configuration and deployment directories (JONAS_BASE) were separated. Persistent configuration was added through JAdmin. JOnAS-Tomcat and JOnAS-Jetty packagings were added. JMS 1.1 support and JMS/SOAP support were added. The following realms for JOnAS/Tomcat are now supported: MemoryRealm, UserDatabaseRealm, JNDIRealm, and JDBCRealm. ejbSelect and cascade delete were implemented for CMP 2.0.
