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).
Pax Web 4.0 has been released about a week ago. This version consists of more then 100 issues. So take a look at the key benefits of this version.
What’s important and new
This will give you a brief overview about the new and the important changes of Pax Web 4.0.
A lot has changed internally to support JSP 2.2 out of the box. JSF 2.1 can be used too, this has been back ported and introduced to the Pax Web 3.x line as well.

The last couple of month I spent a lot of my private time on writing. Not so much on writing blog posts, but writing articles and a cookbook. The articles are about what’s new with Karaf 3.0, building an enterprise application with Karaf I and II. These articles where and are going to be published in the german JavaMagazin (yeah sorry it’s all in german)
The other big thing I currently work on during my private time is the Apache Karaf Cookbook. This book is written by Jamie Goodyear, Johan Edstrom, Heith Kesler (all of them authors of „Learning Apache Karaf“) and me. It will covering Apache Karaf and tries to give some ideas on how to:
