The Samples section of the WAS V8 BETA Information Center is now live!!  http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/beta/index.jsp

WebSphere Application Server V8 Beta samples are new and improved and now available for early testing to our WAS V8 Beta customers! Although clients will continue to find key samples installed with the product, additional samples are available online and can be accessed from a new section in the WAS V8 Beta Information Center. Now, samples, documentation, and other resources reside online, under one roof. This will increase availability and collaboration while providing samples in a time-sensitive manner.

Increasing Availability. The sample applications are now on the web, and users can browse individual samples with a direct link or find them using search engines. This is a first for WebSphere Application Server!

Adding Collaboration. As part of the new collaborative information center, users can comment on and rate samples, receive quick feedback, and sign up for updates.

Providing relevant samples in a time-sensitive manner. Online delivery allows samples to be added or updated periodically with regular updates to the information center.

The samples currently available in the Samples section of the WAS V8 Beta Information Center demonstrate the following technologies: Service Component Architecture (SCA), Communications Enabled Applications (CEA), OSGi applications, XML, and Internationalization service.

Look for more to come!
