By Jakarta EE, Tomcat, TomEE No Comments

While working on Jakarta EE 10 certification (See announcement Apache Tomee Jakarta EE certified after 10 years, Apache TomEE implemented Jakarta Security specification.  Currently, there is only one implementation used in Glassfish and used by all the other vendors for Jakarta Security. In TomEE, we decided to create an alternative to bring some diversity, and have an Apache implementation. What is Jakarta Security? Jakarta Security defines a standard for creating secure Jakarta EE applications in modern application paradigms. It defines an overarching (end-user targeted) Security API for Jakarta EE Applications. Jakarta Security builds on the lower level Security SPIs defined…

TomEE WebProfile vs. TomEE MicroProfile vs. TomEE+ vs. TomEE PluME

By Open Source, TomEE One Comment

As a support company for TomEE and other projects, we get lots of questions from our clients some technical and others architectural. One that we hear from time to time is, “What is the difference between the different TomEE distributions?” This blog will answer that question. The TomEE project has been evolving for twenty years. It has, at its foundation, always been about adding Jakarta EE Web Profile (formerly Java EE) technologies to a complete Apache Tomcat distribution. The use of Tomcat in conjunction with TomEE is explained in more detail in this blog post. A visual guide to TomEE…

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, Tomcat, 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…

Configuring JDBC in TomEE

By Apache TomEE, Jakarta EE, Java EE, TomEE, Tutorials 4 Comments

A question that comes up frequently in the TomEE community and with Tomitribe’s support customers is “How do I configure a JDBC driver?” There are a number of ways to do this, but I’m going to talk about the two most common methods. You can configure a JDBC driver for the entire TomEE application server or for a specific webapp. Regardless of which way you choose to do it, the configuration syntax is the same. NOTE: You can also configure a JDBC DataSource directly within an @Resource annotation but this is not recommended and is not covered here. See the…
