Filed under: websphere — Tags: , , — Davanum Srinivas @ 8:16 pm

Fetch the scala servlet sample using git:

dims@dims-laptop-520:~$ git clone git://

Take a peek at the servlet code:

package org.peat.scalaservlet

import javax.servlet.http._
import javax.servlet._

class Example extends HttpServlet {

  override def doGet(request: HttpServletRequest, response: HttpServletResponse) = response.getWriter().println( exampleContent )

  def exampleContent(): String = { "Hello world, from a Scala servlet!" }

Build the sample using maven:

dims@dims-laptop-520:~/scala-servlet$ mvn war:war

Follow instructions from the following url to deploy the ScalaServlet.war:

Don’t forget to enable the servlet feature in the defaultServer/server.xml. Once the server is started peek at the logs

Webpshere XML Feature pack – Looking for a XSLT 2.0 implementation other than Saxon?

Filed under: websphere — Tags: — Davanum Srinivas @ 6:38 am

Details are here:

The thin client is pretty interesting as it can be used with non-IBM JDK’s and outside the Websphere environment. Also, don’t forget to poke around the samples in xmlfepsamples.ear.

If you want to try this out just get the free Websphere for developers:

and install the XML Feature Pack using instructions here:
