Java EE 5 SDK Update 1 has been released

Along with the NetBeans 5.5 Enterprise Pack, the Java EE 5 SDK Update 1 was also released today. With more than 200 bug fixes, Java EE 5 SDK just got better! Sun Java System Application Server PE 9.0 Update 1 is an update release focusing on bug fixes only. Bugs affecting the SDK or NetBeans 5.5 IDE, which bundle Application Server PE 9.0 Update 1, were addressed along with important issues discovered after the final build of the 9.0 release. Some customer escalations, and bugs with no workarounds were also fixed.

With over 200 bugs fixes, Sun Java System Application Server 9.0 PE Update 1 is a very stable Java EE 5 application server that can be used for development as well as deployment. The list of bugs fixed in this release is included in the release notes. The documentation for the Application Server has also been updated to include corrected and new information on how to use the various features.

Sun has added a new Java EE-related download bundle, the Java Application Platform SDK. This first release of the new SDK adds support for :
  • Composite Application Development with the Java Business Integration (JBI) runtime and BPEL,
  • Identity management and Web Services security through Access Manager functionality to the traditional Java EE SDK
Future releases will add more functionality.

With this all-in-one bundle, developers can quickly learn, develop, and deploy new enterprise Java technologies. Developers have the option to download the SDK bundles with JDK or Tools (NetBeans). The NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5 provides a comprehensive set of visual tools to author, deploy, and test BPEL processes and securing web services via identity management.

See BPEL and Composite Application Authoring and Web Service Security screencasts for a quick overview.

With this addition, there are now 3 Java EE 5 related bundles (see at-a-glance page) all including an updated Application Server, based on GlassFish V1 UR1.
