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.

We want everyone to experience the kind of joy and…

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…
