Apache Geronimo is Java EE 5 Compatible
By draks on Jun 06, 2007
The Apache Geronimo project announced they have passed all the Java EE 5 tests ensuring compatibility. They join the list of other companies that also have compatible implementations including TMaxSoft, SAP, BEA, Oracle and Sun. This is a gigantic proof point for the power of open source to enable innovation. In the first year after releasing Java EE 5 to open source (GlassFish went public in May 2005) there were 5 compatible implementations, Geronimo now makes it 6 with more to come. In previous years it took 2 to 3 years for the 1st additional implementation to appear. Congratulations to the Apache project.
