Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache OpenWebBeans-2.0.8 CDI container
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2018 12:02:43 GMT
 It’s a great pleasure to announce the release of Apache OpenWebBeans-2.0.8

Apache OpenWebBeans-2.x is a CDI container (Contexts and Dependency
Injection for Java) and targets the CDI-2.0 specification (JavaEE 8).

This is a maintenance release targeting the new CDI 2.0 specification!
CDI is a JavaEE standard specification (JSR-365) but fully available under
Apache License v2.0.

OpenWebBeans is modularly built and can be used either in pure Java SE, in
a Servlet Container like e.g. Tomcat or in fully fledged JavaEE containers.
Our core is only 700kByte and thus brings full JavaEE-8 compatibility at a
smaller size of most so called ‚micro solutions‘.

Distribution packages can be downloaded via

The release is also available via maven

We also include an installer scripts in our binary distribution which can
be used as easy as:

$> unzip
$> cd openwebbeans-distribution-2.0.8
$> ./install_owb_tomcat7.bat /opt/your/apache-tomcat-9.x.x

(works with Apache Tomcat7 and 8, 8.5 and 9)

OpenWebBeans-2.0.x is included in Apache Meecrowave-1.2.x and the upcoming
Apache TomEE-8.x releases.

Please also visit our homepage and contact
us on our mailing lists.

have fun,
The Apache OpenWebBeans Team
