Geronimo J2EE 1.4 Certified Release - Milestone 5

Geronimo's Milestone 5 Build is its first Build that is J2EE 1.4 Certified

The Apache Geronimo development team has released Milestone 5. According to an official statement, "The Geronimo team released its Milestone 5 build, the first build that is J2EE 1.4 certified. A certified milestone release means this build, while not as stable and feature-rich as the eventual 1.0 and later releases, it should provide all required J2EE 1.4 services and features.

This release is a huge step forward for the Apache Geronimo project. Since the Geronimo project began in the Apache incubator in August 2003, paid and volunteer Geronimo developers have integrated several existing open source projects and written a lot of new code to create the first open source J2EE 1.4 server available with a BSD-like license."

Geronimo now joins JBoss and JOnAS as fellow open source J2EE 1.4 servers. (JBoss and JOnAS are released under the LGPL license, which places extra requirements on people who modify and redistribute the code.)
