Apache Software Foundation Announces Release of
Apache Geronimo Version 1.1

Usability Improvements Simplify Configuration and Deployment of J2EE Applications

(City, State)  July 05, 2006 -- The Apache Software Foundation is pleased to announce the
release of 
Apache Geronimo Version 1.1, an open source application server from the Apache community.
release continues the J2EE certification path led by the previous version of Geronimo, providing
fully compliant and usable J2EE container suitable for everything from development to enterprise


Apache Geronimo v1.1 introduces several structural changes improving scalability, portability
overall organization, as well as including new features and functionality.  Enhancements have
made to the administration console including memory utilization graphics and plugins to improve

usability.  Also, improvements have been made to the innovative configuration and 
administration/plug-in architecture.

Whereas the previous version offered a full J2EE configuration, v1.1 includes a “Little
configuration, a smaller footprint web-oriented version of Geronimo that can be scaled up
to JMS or 
full J2EE using plug-ins as users’ needs change.  The addition of Little G provides an option
those who want to use Geronimo for lightweight applications without the additional installation


One of the main goals of Apache Geronimo is flexibility.  Geronimo is flexible enough to include

only the capabilities that users want and need.  Geronimo already offers a modular architecture
makes it easy to create custom distributions with custom feature sets.  With v1.1, we (the
Geronimo Team) looked at users’ needs and added even more features to benefit those needs,
functionality, and extend usability.

The flexible, easy-to-use, and easy-to-configure application server is built from best-of-breed
source components and is fully licensed under the business-friendly Apache Software License
multiple benefits to organizations and their development teams. The software is available
download from the Apache Geronimo web site (
