TomEE PluME--Like GlassFish But With Commercial Support

TomEE 1.7.1 Plus with Mojarra and EclipseLink (PLUME) feels like GlassFish 3 (Java EE 7 is not supported yet by TomEE), but comes with commercial support.

TomEE 1.7.1 PLuME is regular TomEE plus with Mojarra and EclipseLink.

I just deployed some JAX-RS, EJB 3, CDI, JSF, JPA (EclipseLink) applications developed on GlassFish to TomEE PluME and it worked without any modifications. TomEE works well with NetBeans 8+ -- just add an existing instance as a Tomcat server and you will be able to deploy straight from NetBeans.

The great story about Java EE is: when one vendor loses its commercial interests, several others (WLP, WildFly) can easily step in. The vendor lock-in is minimal.

See you at Java EE Workshops at Munich Airport (Terminal 2) or on demand and in a location very near you:!

NEW workshop: HTML 5 and JavaScript Essentials, Three days in April 2017: from Java EE 7 Architectures over Microservices to Performance, Troubleshooting and Monitoring
On demand workshops: Java EE 7: Bootstrap, Effective, Testing and Microservices available for streaming.


A book about rethinking Java EE Patterns



I'm a fan of TomEE. Works very nice and it's very small & light.

Thanks for this update, Adam!

Apache application server should use apache implementations :) I'm wonder if Geronimo will ever jump into JEE7.

Adam, thanks for taking the time to discover how cool Apache TomEE - And if you ever need commercial support? Nudge nudge wink wink!

Greatly appreciating Java blog, I got your site link from top 100 Java blogs list, but i am getting trouble to finding the beginning Java tutorials. Please share the link of that web page.

So why EclipseLink? Because OpenJPA is a very buggy implementation that is hardly 'enterprise-ready'. The acceptance of TomEE in the real world could be impaired by OpenJPA. I'd prefer Hibernate as JPA provider because it's probably the most widely used provider.
