WebSphere Application Server provides millions of developers and IT Architects, from businesses of every size, with an innovative, performance-based foundation to build, reuse, run, integrate and manage Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applications and services. Developers can jumpstart their development efforts and leverage existing skills by selecting from the comprehensive set of open standards-based programming models WebSphere Application Server V8.0 supports.
As well as using OSGi technology internally, WebSphere Application Server supports the deployment of applications that exploit OSGi to deliver:
- reduced time to market by increasing re-use through a modular development and deployment model.
- reduced disk and memory footprint by removing component duplication in deployable artefacts and runtime.
- increased flexibility and availability through in-place update and extension of running applications.
