Guys,

Do we have a Tomcat version that supports the EJB 3.1 specification?

OpenEJB is a web app that implements most of EJB 3.1, and it works with Tomcat.

Not sure what you're getting at. As was pointed out, Tomcat has never, and will never, support any version of EJB directly. Some support for EJB 3.1 can be gotten through OpenEJB, as was also pointed out. Does that answer your question?

Based on one other question you had posted sometime back, I'm just guessing that you are confused with the EJB3.1 feature which allows EJBs to be deployed through .war files. Is that what you are looking for? If yes, then that feature does not mean that Tomcat will start supporting EJBs. All it means is, application servers like JBoss, Glassfish (and others) will now look for EJBs in .war files too - just another way to package your EJBs.

Good, so the point here is understood. Deploying EJB's in war files. So I just wanted to know if we could use the all time favorite container "Tomcat" and if there is a version planned for this support!

You might want to check out http://code.google.com/p/siwpas/ - looks like extremely interesting stuff:



.... What is SIwpas?¶

Simple Web Profile Application Server (SIwpas) aim is not to implement a new "Java EE" application server from the scratch. SIwpas aim is to integrate Apache Software Foundation(ASF) JavaTM Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 (Java EE 6) Web Profile Specification related projects into the Apache Tomcat 7 for producing a Java EE 6 Web Profile compatible server(Currently, SIwpas is not a certified Java EE Web Profile Server. When we say compatible it means that it contains technologies that are listed in Java EE Web Profile Specification. It does not mean that it has passed Java EE Web Profile TCK suite). .....

In October at JavaOne, Apache released Apache TomEE which is a Java EE 6 certified version of Apache Tomcat. It supports EJB 3.1, CDI 1.0, etc. and includes Apache OpenEJB, Apache OpenWebBeans, Apache OpenJPA, Apache MyFaces, etc. All added and integrated into Tomcat and officially certified like JBoss or GlassFish.
