Yes! It is there… Today we announce the general availability of the SpringSource dm Server, the modular, OSGi-based Java server to run enterprise Java applications and Spring-powered applications with a new degree of flexibility and reliability. Read the full press release here.

Here are some quotes from beta-testers:

“With little effort we are able to separate a standard monolithic Spring/Tomcat-based Web application into several smaller OSGi bundles. This gives our customers better separation of concerns, more flexibility and shorter time-to-market. The dm Server is the key enabler.”
Arne Seime
Senior Consultant, Integrate AS 

“In my experience, it’s easy to migrate existing war files to the new server and then stepwise modularize them. There is no doubt in my mind that OSGi with some form of application extensions like you have made is the future of Java application servers. This is what we have missed for years. Making it even better is that OSGi is a proven technology and it’s very lightweight. From now on this is my first choice of application server.”
Søren Dalby Larsen
CTO, Conscius Finance A/S

“The SpringSource Application Platform takes away all hassles and allows me to focus on designing and implementing a truly modular application.” 

 “If you ask me, the SpringSource Application Platform is the future of Java EE.”
Jan-Hendrik Kuperus
Software EngineerSogeti Nederland B.V.

“The dm Server is a new generation of Java EE application servers: it brings together traditional Java EE and OSGi worlds. It allows you to deploy legacy applications with minimal impact, which will allow you to gradually migrate existing Java EE applications to the dm Server.” 

“We are currently taking advantage of the dm Server’s features to implement a large knowledge management system. Using dm Server allowed us to simplify the code management and build process — we now let the dm Server handle the complex deployment structure. We expect the dm Server to gain strong momentum as developers become more familiar with the OSGi model. The dm Server has the potential to become the most significant OSGi application server. The tooling, monitoring and support from SpringSource will without doubt encourage adoption of the SpringSource Application Platform in mission-critical systems.”
Jan Machacek
Chief Architect, Cake Solutions 

“Nice Eclipse integration with server deployment and repository management. Looks like Java enterprise development is coming out of its Dark Age.”
