WebSphere Application Server V8.5 is Now Available

I first talked about WAS V8.5 back in October 2011 when we started the early program. And in June 2012 we shipped it...Walt Noffsinger, WAS Product Manager, describes our new release in some more detail here but the 1-line summary is that V8.5 has both big news and small news...

The big news is the inclusion of Intelligent Management capabilities in WAS Network Deployment (ND) and WAS for z/OS. This integrates capabilities into WAS that were previously only available in the separate WebSphere Virtual Enterprise and WebSphere Compute Grid offerings: all the features of WVE including application editioning, server health management, dynamic clustering and intelligent routing, and the batch processing capabilities of WCG are now included in WAS ND. And its faster, servicing more requests per core, then any other AppServer on the market.

The small news is the WAS Liberty profile, now part of all commercial editions of WAS. "Small" means a lightweight server profile of WAS for web applications along with a lightweight distribution of the WAS Developers Tools as an Eclipse feature. My previous posts talked about both the development simplicity and lightweight production characteristics of the WAS Liberty profile. Here though, I want to show how quick and easy it is to get hold of the Liberty profile and the WAS developer tools for Eclipse and become productive in 3 easy steps. Take a look at this brief video...

...then give it a try. The full-function, non-time-bombed developer distribution of the runtime and the tools (which are shown in the video) are free for non-production use on developer desktops so it costs nothing to try it out. Let us know what you think by visiting wasdev.net.
