This post is an add-on to the post I just recently did at codecentric AG. The scope of this additional post is to narrow down on some of the technical aspects that needed to be done to have the showcase running inside Karaf 4.0.0.
The next version of Pax Web is about to be released. Time to take a closer look at what’s going to be included with it. First of all it it’s a minor version update, so it’s mainly upgrades for the underlying containers. Jetty is upgraded to version 9.2.5, one of its features is the support for Servlet 3.1 API (JEE7).
Tomcat is upgraded to version 8.0.14. Because there is no OSGi version of it available a Pax Tipi Project takes care of the OSGi-fied version of it. Thanks to this updated it’s now possible to also support JSP 2.3.1 with Jasper in version 2.2. Due to this Apache MyFaces 2.2.6 and higher is supported (JSF-2.2).
