Apache TomEE Examples & Demo

In this talk, Apache TomEE (pronounced "Tommy") will be introduced.Tomee is an Enterprise Container built on top of the Tomcat Servlet Container.  It incorporates OpenEJB and thus can house Enterprise Java Beans.   It supports JMS, JAX-WS, JAX-RS and CDI (Context Dependency Injection).

A general introduction will be provided by John Adams and a more in depth view with sample code will be provided by Brian Marshall.Participants can follow along by downloading Java from, Eclipse from and Tomee from

Apache TomEE Introduction

Apache TomEE, pronounced "Tommy", is an all-Apache stack aimed at Java EE 6 Web Profile certification where Tomcat is top dog. It combines several Apache projects together, including Tomcat to create a JEE 6 standard compliant server.  We will explore a bit of history about the project, the components that are included in the distributions and go through the installation process.  We will also discuss how to integrate TomEE with the Eclipse IDE for easy deployment.

    Hi, I'm interested in learning more about this implementation of web services and REST. Seems there are so many different methods of doing REST. My background is in Cloud, Virtual Systems, Automated Provisioning, Network and Enterprise Management systems. Looking forward to meeting you all, its been a while since I've attended the meetings. I'm currently looking for a new challenge if anyone knows of openings.

      Hi Bruce. Glad you made it back. Check our message board for jobs. I know a few have been posted in the last few weeks. As far as REST, keep an eye on the schedule, we usually have a few talks throughout the year on Web Services related stuff including REST.
