Whether or not you have sunshine in your sky at the moment, you can bring some light into your life by downloading our latest Liberty profile beta! It contains new stuff for both WebSphere® Application Server Liberty Profile and WebSphere Developer Tools (WDT).
Look out for more betas over the coming months…
What’s new in the Liberty profile beta for June/July?
- Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) A connector in the new rtcomm-1.0 feature provides a simple way for WebRTC nodes to find and connect to each other, enabling real-time communication sessions between browsers.
- CouchDB Allows you to configure and connect to any CouchDB instance (including Cloudant) using the Liberty profile. This means you can use the ektorp client jar to programmatically access a CouchDB database instance using Java. OSGi applications are not supported with the CouchDB feature.
What’s already in there?
Back in May’s betas, we added JMS 2.0, JPA 2.1, bean validation 1.1, JSON-P 1.0, and EJB 3.2 Lite.
Before that, there was all kinds of lovely stuff, like Servlet 3.1, OpenID Connect, Java 8 toleration, WebSockets, a facelift for the Liberty Repository… Go take a look at the April betas announcement for a full list.
