New WSO2 White Paper Discusses How to Extend Benefits of Java EE by Using WSO2 Application Server

Technical white paper examines how Java EE application and service migrations help leverage platform-level features supported by the WSO2 middleware platform

Mountain View, CA – June 30, 2014 – Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE), the widely adopted platform for developing and running enterprise applications and Web services, has evolved significantly. A new white paper from WSO2 examines the Java EE specifications supported in WSO2 Application Server, along with value-added features gained by migrating Java EE applications from a traditional application server to WSO2’s lightweight alternative.

Getting More From Java EE With WSO2 Application Server

The white paper, “Evaluating Java EE application migration and Java EE service migration to WSO2 Application Server,” explains how moving to WSO2 Application Server enables Java EE developers to leverage a number of platform-level features supported by the WSO2 middleware platform, including multi-tenancy, software as a service (SaaS) development, embedded API management, and real-time analytics.

Authored by WSO2 Senior Technical Lead Sagara Gunathunge, the paper begins by defining WSO2 Application Server and exploring how it promotes lightweight application development. The paper then reviews the Java EE framework, profiles and Web-profile specification, and it explores how WSO2 Application Server supports both the Java EE Web Profile (WP) specification and non-Java EE-WP specifications.

Additionally, the paper examines the advantages of migrating Java EE applications to WSO2 Application Server. It then concludes by discussing how WSO2 Application Server, together with other WSO2 products, can help enterprises to achieve a connected business in which processes are extended across employees, customers and partners.
