{logo jonas 128 notext.png} {JavaCompatibleEnterpriseEdi.png} 1 Dear JOnAS enthusiasts

That's it, after months of constant efforts, JOnAS has passed the entire Java EE 5 test suite!

Consequently, the JOnAS Team members are very pleased to deliver the very first Java EE 5 certified JOnAS release!

The new milestone (M5) version of JOnAS 5.1 includes full JAX-WS 2.0 and EJB 3.0 support. JPA 1.0 is provided using either Hibernate (3.4.0 GA) or EclipseLink (1.0.1). This version also brings many improvements (especially in the application server core) and bug fixes.

If you want to help: please kick the tires and raise issues in our"100005&group_id" 5&func="browse">bug tracker. This way, everybody will benefit of an even better JOnAS stable release.

JOnAS 5.1.0 M5 can be downloaded from the Download page, or using the JNLP installer.

Remarks, questions and comments can be posted on the jonas -at- list or jonas-team -at- (for more technical questions).

Bugs and feature requests can be reported on the"100005&group_id" 5&func="browse">bug tracker.

See below for detailed new features and enhancements included in the 5.1 M5 release:
