Good evening ladies and gentlemen!
It’s a great pleasure to announce the release of Apache OpenWebBeans-1.6.0.
Apache OpenWebBeans is a CDI container (Contexts and Dependency Injection for
Java) and targets the CDI-1.2 specification (JavaEE 7). We pass the standalone
CDI TCK and the JavaEE7 WebProfile part of the CDI-TCK (in Apache TomEE-7.0).
OpenWebBeans is modularly built and can be used either in pure Java SE, in a
Servlet Container like e.g. Tomcat or in fully fledged JavaEE containers.
Our core is only 500k and thus brings full JavaEE compatibility at a smaller
size of most so called ‚micro solutions‘.
Distribution packages can be downloaded from
The release is also available via maven
We’ve now also included single command installer scripts in our binary
distribution which can be used as easy as:
$> unzip openwebbeans-distribution-1.6.0-binary.zip
$> cd openwebbeans-distribution-1.6.0
$> ./install_owb_tomcat7.bat /opt/your/apache-tomcat-8.x.x
(works with Apache Tomcat7 and 8)
