There was a lot of buzz when Apache announced that they were going to work on a J2EE certified application server. After the buzz, the developers put their heads down and got to work. At ApacheCon they had a session at the bar (mostly coding I think ;) which resulted in PetStore running as a demo.
Today they released their first milestone: M1
We shouldn’t expect to download this bad boy and have the experience be like installing BEA WebLogic 8.1 or anything, but it is good to have something out there.
Now the Geronimo team can “do an Eclipse” and come out with new milestones which totally break the ones before ;) jk
