I'm trouble tracking down any information about support for J2EE 1.5 in WebSphere 6.0 application server. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Ryan,
You are having trouble finding information on this because WebSphere 6 only supports up to J2EE 1.4.

I am not sure what exact features that you are looking for from supportability perspective.........but you might wanted to know that WebSphere v 6.1 is planning to support EJB3 and advanced web services features as "Feature Packs" running on top of WebSphere Application Server v 6.1.

Check out following alpha programs which will potentially be rolled out into product soon-

1. IBM� WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1 Feature Pack for Web Services @ https://www14.software.ibm.com/iwm/web/cc/earlyprograms/websphere/wsvwas61/?S_TACT=105AGX28&S_CMP=DLMAIN

2. IBM� WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1 Feature Pack for EJB 3 @ https://www14.software.ibm.com/iwm/web/cc/earlyprograms/websphere/was61ejb3/?S_TACT=105AGX28&S_CMP=DLMAIN

Sit tight for J2EE 1.5 supported WebSphere Application Server release......... I mean to say, wait for it if you needed.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
H. Kanthi

As a WebSphere proponent, I can't say how disappointed I am with the delay of J2EE 1.5 support.

I really am curious as to why IBM is having such a problem. Is it the acquisition of Geronimo that is causing the problem? When will we get a release date for WebSphere 7?

It's frustrating, to say the least.

Cameron - I just don't have & can't give you any future release dates of the product ....(Confidential : ........but I am sure it's on it's way out shortly........ stay tuned pl!!

Coming to Feature Pack..... I am not sure why you think it won't be supported. Once's Feature Packs are officially released (as it's still beta for now....), WebSphere customers will do receive official support for these Feature Packs from IBM support, no doubt about it..... Pl. don't spread the wrong information!

Does anyone have any new information about this topic? Does WebSphere 6.1 support JEE5?

Interesting question. I was curious and searched on developerworks. The community edition has J2EE support. I don't see anything about the regular server supporting it yet.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
