Thanks to your support for our beta programme, we were able to release WAS Liberty with Java EE 7 Full Platform support on 25th June 2015!
Look out for more betas over the coming months.
What’s in the WAS Liberty beta for July 2015?
- SAML 2.0 Enables WAS Liberty to support SAML 2.0 web browser single sign-on profile. A web user authenticates to a SAML identity provider (IdP), and Liberty makes authorization decision on the basis of assertion from IdP without the requirement of on-premises user registry. See how to configure SAML 2.0.
- WebRTC Gateway The WebRTC Gateway (GW) is useful when you require federating between the RTComm network and different vendors networks. The other network can be a network of WebRTC endpoints, which is using a different method for signaling, or it can also be a different network of Voice over IP (VOIP) devices or even the Public switched telephone network (PSTN). Such federation is possible as long as the other network provides an edge GW element that supports the widely adopted SIP protocol.
What’s already in there?
In June 2015, we released support for Java EE 7 Full Platform, including all the Java EE 7 features from previous betas. Aside from Java EE 7 support, the June 2015 beta contained OpenID Connect client and server features, and updates to WDT and the Admin Center.
In earlier betas, we added support for SIP Servlets 1.1 and tools, SPNEGO support, OSGi App integration, OSGi & Web 3.1 facet configuration for OSGi bundles; we fixed a shedload of bugs and added things like support for remote development, auto-scaling and dynamic routing, Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) and CouchDB; finally, Java 8 support, a facelift for the Liberty Repository…
