Open Liberty

  • IBM has announced the creation of the Open Liberty project, an open source offering created by IBM from a subset of the WebSphere Liberty codebase
  • The purpose of Open Liberty is to create an open source entry point to the commercial Liberty portfolio to enable IBM to engage with clients who have an expectation that new development projects will be built using open source
  • Customers can seamlessly transition from Open Liberty to the commercial WebSphere Liberty portfolio where they benefit from additional capabilities as well as IBM’s 24x7 enterprise support.
