This article will try to give you a brief overview on what’s new in the soon to come Pax-Web 3.0.0. First of all, the most outstanding new feature will be the support for Tomcat as an alternative Container. Right now it supports basic HTTP Services, but this is being worked on.
Second there is a new support for binding Web-Applications to certain Http-Connectors aka Virtual-Hosts. More on this can be found soon on this blog. Find it here.
Third it’s now possible to deploy WABs without a web.xml. This requires „Servlet 3.0“ compliant Servlets within. A quick howto will also be available soon on this blog. Find it here
Last but not least, thanks to the awsome work of Harald, Pax-Web supports Pax-Cdi. This opens the possibilities to inject OSGi services into Servlets.
… more to come …
