Specifications and API documentation

The WebSphere Application Server product supports various industry standards. This topic lists the specifications and (API) documentation supported in current and previous product releases.


Components

The v8.5 column in the tables lists the latest specification level that the product supports. However, support for specifications is compatible with earlier versions of the product; WebSphere Application Server v8.5 supports all specifications listed for Version 6.0 through v8.5. For example, for any application type, the Version 8.0 product supports Java EE 5 and 6 and J2EE 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4. The word "New" beside a specification indicates that the product first supported the specification in that product version.
