Java Enterprise System 5 Update 1

In case you haven't noticed there is a new version of the Java Enterprise System that was posted to the Sun Download site on Friday September 1, 2007. The new release is Java ES 5 Update 1. Here is the main Java ES download page.

Here are the versions of the individual products that are in Java ES 5 Update 1:

  • Directory Server 6.2 EE
  • Directory Proxy Server 6.2
  • Application Server 8.2 Patch 2
  • Service Registry 3.1 Update 1
  • Access Manager 7.1
  • Portal Server 7.1 Update 2
  • Message Queue 3.7 Update 2
  • Web Server 7.0 Update 1
  • Web Proxy Server 4.0.5

This release is mainly a maintenance release, with lots of bug fixes. But there are a few new and interesting features included also.

One interesting feature is the inclusion of Service Tags. Service Tags are digital identifiers that can be embedded in software or firmware and that holds a small amount of product information. The Sun Connection Registration Manager discovers service tags and registers the products and allows you to view and manage your registered products online. You can check out Sun Connection Inventory Channel here. Not all of the Sun Java System components are Service Tag-enabled just yet, but a lot of them are. Here is the list of the components that are Service Tag-enabled:

  • Directory Server 6.2 EE
  • Application Server 8.2 Patch 2
  • Access Manager 7.1
  • Portal Server 7.1 Update 2
  • Web Server 7.0 Update 1
  • Monitoring/JMX framework

\*\* Correction \*\*

I incorrectly stated that Sun Application Server 9.1 was certified with Java ES 5 Update 1. It is not. The fully certified and supported web containers are listed in the Java ES 5 Update 1 Release Notes. For now, it is not supported by Java ES 5 Update 1 component products, but future releases of Sun middleware products will, so hang tight. I do apologize for any inconvenience. The official documentation at docs.sun.com should always be considered the source for what is supported and what is not.
