WebSphere Liberty Profile Mini Proof of Technology, Q3 2015

A new edition of our Virtual Proof Of Technology (VPOT) Series for the IBM® WebSphere® Liberty Profile will again be offered three times in Q3 2015. We will briefly cover the primary benefits of the WebSphere Liberty Profile, and then drill down into the new enhancements which were announced on June 9th, 2015. The Liberty Profile’s continuous delivery model provides new optionally installable features which can be added to an existing WebSphere Liberty V8.5.5 installation with no requirement for a version upgrade or migration. Some of the enhancements we announced in June which we will cover are:
  • Liberty profile certification for Java EE 7 Full Platform which makes it the FIRST production Java EE 7 runtime. We will cover the latest specifications added and how to begin using them.
  • New install options to set up a JEE 7 environment, including unzip install, and an easy way to upgrade your license between different editions.
  • The WebSphere Liberty Repository’s new Open Source Asset Repository Service which enables anyone to stand up their own repository and populate it with features from the WebSphere Liberty Repository, third-party features, or features that are created in house.
  • New cloud options including hosted WebSphere instances on IBM application server on cloud, and Docker images for Liberty profile.
  • Additional improvements to operational capabilities including the admin center, and auto-scaling.
This in-your-office event includes hands-on labs to help you start using some of these new features. For those new to Liberty, the Liberty profile is a composable, simple to use, yet powerful application server for increased productivity. The composable nature of it makes it perfect for all environments, including development, production, small, large, cloud, and on-prem. It is both a developer-friendly and a production-ready Java runtime for web, OSGi, and mobile applications. Extremely fast restart times coupled with a small footprint and ease of use make the Liberty profile a great option for many of your application requirements.
