IntelliJ IDEA 12 EAP available with Apache TomEE support
Just in time for the TomEE 1.5.0 release, JetBrains announces IntelliJ IDEA 12 EAP Build 122.519 is Available and features TomEE application server support. Already supported via the Tomcat integration, this update displays TomEE prominently and paves the way for future TomEE-specific features.
As more vendors discover their existing Tomcat integrations work out-of-the-box with TomEE, expect to see more announcements of Apache TomEE support.
Here are some previous announcements in case you missed them:
Apache TomEE 1.5 Released!
We are excited to announce the release of Apache TomEE 1.5. The volume of feedback on the 1.0.0 Final drove such an impressive number of fixes and features into TomEE that the release number has been updated to reflect the changes.
The team is proud to announce certification of a new Apache TomEE stack that includes the Web Profile plus JAX-RS for RESTful Web Services. The new 'TomEE JAXRS' distribution shows TomEE's commitment to progressing its certification efforts beyond the Web Profile and is a great alternative to the TomEE Plus distribution. See the comparison for a view of all Apache TomEE distributions.
Another great feature is the extended support for database connection pools. In addition to the previously supported Apache Commons-DBCP, the 1.5 release adds transaction support to the native Apache Tomcat and BoneCP connection pools. The two additional pools offer great alternatives to applications under heavy load. JMX instrumentation and statistics have also been added generically to all pools and provide a great level of monitoring and management.
Other major features include deploy-time enhancement for JPA Entities via Apache OpenJPA, support including JPA providers in webapps, ability to mock and inject mocks in unit tests and a powerful new TomEE Maven Plugin which can provision servers, install libraries, deploy webapps and more.
We'd like to thank everyone who gave feedback and contibuted to improve Apache TomEE on a daily basis!
