Siwpas (short for Simple Web Profile Application Server) has been an interesting project for a little while. Very similar to the more widely known TomEE, Siwpas is a Java EE application server based on Tomcat. In addition to Java EE support Siwpas offers production ready features such as clustering and security. You can also get commercial support from a Turkish based company named MechSoft.

Although Siwpas has been around for some time it had not been certified. The folks behind the application server now announced that they have achieved Java EE 6 Web Profile compatibility through the OW2 Foundation. For those unaware, the OW2 Foundation has long been granted a full Java EE TCK license for a long time. This is the license Siwpas is able to use by joining and contributing the server to the OW2 Foundation. 

Siwpas founder Gurkan Erdogdu shares the story of how the server achieved Java EE 6 Web Profile certification on his blog. You can find out more about Siwpas here and download it from the official OW2 forge. As Gurkan mentions the next step for Siwpas is Java EE 7 certification. Please welcome their valiant effort in expanding options for the Java EE community.
