WebSphere App Server Feature Pack Open Beta Is Here

WebSphere users past, present and future are invited to play

Java Developer Magazine on Ulitzer

IBM WebSphere started its Open Beta (Managed Betas are so 'last-year') for the WebSphere Application Server Feature Pack for OSGi Applications and JPA 2.0 today. The Open Beta site is here. I'll list some of the highlights from the Beta site as a teaser.

Highlights of the OSGi applications support delivered in the feature pack (from the Beta Site ):

 

Highlights of the JPA 2.0 implementation delivered in the feature pack (from the Beta Site ):

The implementations in this feature pack are based on the Apache Project offerings of OpenJPA (JPA 2.0) and Aries (OSGi) and demonstrate how IBM is committed to supporting open source software, the open source community, and open standards. If that all sounds a bit market-ish, I apologize...it's Friday.
