The Apache OpenWebBeans team is proud to announce the release of Apache Meecrowave 1.2.0

Apache Meecrowave is a small server (only 9MB) fully based on JavaEE 8 technologies

    Apache Tomcat-9.0.2 (Servlets-4.0)
    Apache OpenWebBeans-2.0.3 (CDI-2.0)
    Apache Johnzon-1.1.5 (JSON-P-1.1 and JSON-B-1.0), and
    Apache CXF-3.2.1 (JAX-RS-2.1).

That means it is ideally suited for Microservices and standalone applications.

Meecrowave can be either started via a maven plugin (for ease of development), programmatically as embedded server, bundled as application with your business code or as runner to start up portable WAR or JAR applications.
