WebSphere Liberty Core
In June of 2012 WAS V8.5 came out and introduced the Liberty profile.
Liberty Profile is a lightweight server for faster development and easy deployment of web apps. Less than 50mb to download from the Web, customers can download easily at WASdev.net for free (for desktop).
It restarts in less than 3 seconds which is important for developers wanting a FAST environment (faster than Jboss).
With WAS 8.5.5 there is now a separate offering priced competitively with OSS: WAS Liberty Core: $26/pvu list price or competitive tradein at $13/pvu). This price is very competitive with Tomcat and likely cheaper than Jboss.
WAS Liberty Core provides full fidelity to WAS ND for customers who may want to use it for devt and ND for production.
A lightweight and low-cost Liberty profile based offering (not full-profile WAS), provides the capabilities to rapidly build and deliver web apps that do not require the full Java EE stack.
The problem of a lightweight development environment in WAS has been solved!
- WAS Liberty Profile startup & footprint are on par with Tomcat
- WAS Liberty Profile starts up in less than half the time of JBoss Web profile
Note: Tomcat , JBoss, and GlassFish were measured with the HotSpot JDK, while Liberty was measured with the IBM JDK
Liberty Profile is a lightweight server that can service requests with the speed of a full production server.
- Liberty Profile provides up to 20% better runtime performance than JBoss and 25% better than Tomcat.
Note: Tomcat , JBoss, and GlassFish were measured with the HotSpot JDK, while Liberty was measured with the IBM JDK.
