What’s in the WAS Liberty beta for September 2015?

  • JavaScript for Liberty This feature provides the ability for JavaScript application developers to write and execute their code simply and quickly on Liberty. It also provides a framework within which Java developers can expose business logic and functionality to JavaScript applications. You get the best of both worlds – the rapid development time of JavaScript with the stability of Enterprise Java. One of the really compelling things about this feature is that it uses the leading V8 JavaScript engine from Google to execute scripts. You get the same high performance and low memory overhead as the Chrome web browser and Node.js, but running inside Liberty.
  • Liberty Docker containers in collective management Build or extend a Liberty collective using Docker containers embedded with Liberty member servers (i.e. Liberty Docker containers). View these members in the Admin Center, manually build out or complete basic auto-scaling with them, and use dynamic routing to route incoming requests to the Liberty Docker containers.

What’s already in there?

The August 2015 beta included updates to WebSphere Developer Tools and InstallUtility.

Take a look at the previous beta announcements for a full list of stuff added since the V8.5.5.6 release in June 2015:
