Good morning friends,

I'm going to start using WAS8.0 and I'd like to listen to your experiences (if any) using it...

Any opinion welcome !

Hi Claude.

If you are about to try WAS 8.0, let me point you to WebSphere Liberty. It is a cool lightweight version of WAS made specially for developers. Take a look at these links

I should mention that this WAS version is WAS 8.5 Beta March Refresh.

Hope this can help you to familiarize with this cool App Server :-)

Thanks for your reply... if I'm not wrong, WAS Liberty doesn't support EJB, I need a full Java EE implementation.
I agree. Here's the link:
