The launch of Java EE 7 today is a very important event for the Java EE community. Since Java is our DNA here at CloudBees, and as we try to anticipate our customers’ needs, we wanted to be part of this new episode of the Java EE adventure.
We are happy to announce today:
The availability of GlassFish 4 Web Profile to allow users to explore the new features of Java EE 7 Web Profile such as WebSocket, JAX-RS 2.0, non persistent EJB timers or async beans
Managed support of the GlassFish 3 Web Profile stack, after months maturing in our community incubator
For GlassFish v3 users, you now have the same kind of fully managed CloudBees experience that we’ve been providing for Tomcat and JBoss. And if you want to explore EE 7, understand its new features and how your applications will behave on it, it’s all waiting for you on CloudBees.
In addition to the traditional docs and demos we are delighted to demo Antonio Goncalves’ Petstore EE 7 app running on our GlassFish 4 Web Profile stack (source code and clickstart here on GitHub).
Note: please be patient when starting your app on GlassFish. The initial deployment often takes more than 30 seconds and during this time GlassFish temporarily displays its welcome page instead of your application’s homepage.
We hope that you will have a lot of fun using our GlassFish runtimes and exploring Java EE 7 on our platform!
