Building on JBoss Web Beta1, this new release focuses on integration refactorings with JBoss AS, as well as trimming down the configuration profile used to focus on the standalone Servlet and JSP functionality. As a result, the download sizes and startup times are significantly reduced over Beta1, while allowing easily scaling up to JBoss AS when needed.
Looking forward to future releases, integration of EE 6 naming as well as annotation processing optimizations are planned.
As with Beta1, this release is Servlet 3.0 and JSP 2.2 compliant.
