Apache Software Foundation Announces Release Of Apache Geronimo  
Version 2.0


date/time/pre-amble   -- The Apache Software Foundation is pleased to  
announce the release of Apache Geronimo Version 2.0, an open source  
Java Enterprise Edition 5.0 application server from the Apache  
Geronimo project. This release continues the evolution of the Apache  
Geronimo server, adding new features and capabilities to a fully  
compliant Java Enterprise Edition container suitable for everything  
from development to enterprise deployments.


Along with many new features, Apache Geronimo Version 2.0 introduces  
several options for clustering and simplified deployment.  Developers  
can quickly take advantage of the streamlined development options  
provided with Java Enterprise Edition 5.0.  These include EJB 3.0  
persistence as well as new programming model changes that use  
annotations to express developer defaults right in the source code.   
The configuration and management console has also been upgraded with  
several usability improvements such as a JNDI viewer and JMX browser.


The project continues to make available its assembly called "Little  
G" Version 2.0, a lightweight application server for applications  
that don't need the full feature set of Java Enterprise Edition 5.0.  
Perfect for web-service and SOA deployments, "Little G" brings the  
modularity, manageability and extensibility of Apache Geronimo to a  
lightweight, non-Java Enterprise Edition footprint.


This flexible, easy-to-use, and easy-to-configure application server  
is built from best-of-breed open source components and is fully  
licensed under the Apache Software License, offering multiple  
benefits to organizations and their development teams. The software  
is available now for free download from the Apache Geronimo web site  
(http://geronimo.apache.org/).
