By Community, Tribers Tour No Comments

Today, we are in lockdown due to COVID-19. International travel has dropped to single digits. This is a fun-throwback to what it meant to be a 24/7 international traveler, the exhaustion, the jet-lag, the consumption of lots of caffeine & water… and what it meant for some of us to be able to recharge with trusted friends.  Together, we chose to make that travel exhaustion be a bit less heavy to bear! Bruno’s tweet went live on May 17th, 2019. The ~4 minutes video freezes a wonderful memory of our  time in Tokyo, Japan.  Informal sharing while we tested connecting tools…, with smiles…

TomEE for the Holidays, 2nd Annual Event!

By Community, Open Source, TomEE No Comments

Twenty Years and Counting Twenty years ago this month, David Blevins and I started OpenEJB, the open source project which was the foundation of Apache TomEE. It was an exciting time for David and me as neither of us had a lot of experience in open source. I left the project in 2004, but David stuck with it, and for that I’m grateful. OpenEJB became a central part of TomEE several years ago, and it’s through TomEE that we continue to support open-source Jakarta EE. Why TomEE for the Holidays? We want everyone to experience the kind of joy and…

TomEE vs. Tomcat

By Community, Jakarta EE, Open Source, TomEE One Comment

Our support customers will sometimes ask, “What is the difference between Tomcat and TomEE,” but that’s not really the right question. It’s like asking which is better “Omelets or Eggs” or “JSP or Servlets”. You can’t have the first one without the second. TomEE is Tomcat Plus It’s easier to think of TomEE as the same thing as Tomcat plus some bells and whistles, because TomEE is built on top of Tomcat. Specifically, TomEE 8 is the complete Tomcat 9 distribution plus Jakarta EE 8 (formerly Java EE 8) specific APIs. Tomcat is a powerful and hugely popular Java web…
