Apache TomEE: Tomcat with a Kick
Apache TomEE, pronounced “Tommy”, is a simple all-Apache stack aimed at Java EE 6 Web Profile certification where Tomcat is top dog. The desire to beef up Tomcat installations has persisted despite the existence of full-blown app servers, many of which include Tomcat in some truncated and stripped-down form. With today’s embedded APIs, lighter-weight components and the Java EE 6 Web Profile, that can now be fully realized. Pioneered from the Apache OpenEJB project and including Apache OpenWebBeans, Apache MyFaces, Apache ActiveMQ, Apache OpenJPA and Apache CXF, the Apache TomEE integration of these technologies is simple, to-the-point, and focused on the singular task of delivering the Java EE 6 Web Profile in a minimalist fashion. Finally you can get a little more out of your lightweight Tomcat apps without having to give up anything in the process.
