Open Source JBoss Backs Java EE, AJAX

Java EE 5 Delivers AJAX Through Java Server Faces

Approval of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 5 spec by the Java Community Process has been received well by other members of the technology community, including JBoss, which is a Java EE licensee. Sun is calling Java EE 5 "the most significant update of the programming model to the Enterprise Java development platform since the launch of J2EE 1.2 in December 1999."

From the perspective of JBoss, the announcement's Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) 3.0 dimension is of high importance. According to Sun, EJB 3.0 "greatly simplifies the programming model by supporting Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs), which can easily be converted to Web Services with Annotations or made persistent using the Java Persistence API."

JBoss issued a comment through company CTO Sacha Labourey (pictured), who said, "Simplicity is the guiding principle behind the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite, and one of the primary reasons JBoss took a leadership position in implementing a preview of the EJB 3.0 specification across several products last year."

Labourey added that  "JBoss fully supports Java EE 5 because it will provide the most scalable and powerful, yet easy-to-develop platform for enterprise applications."
