Apache Tomcat 7.0.0 Beta, Teiid 7.0 and Apache Cassandra 0.6.3
The first release of Tomcat 7
The first Tomcat 7 release, Tomcat 7.0.0 beta, is now available.
This release implements the Servlet 3.0 and JSP 2.2 and EL 2.2 specifications, and introduces memory leak prevention and detection and alias support. Tomcat 7.0.0 beta users also get protection against session fixation attacks and a filter for adding cross-site request forgery protection to an application.
Leverage AS/MC Features with Teiid 7.0
Teiid 7.0 is out now.
Teiid is a data virtualisation system for using data from multiple, heterogeneous data stores.
Teiid 7.0 requires a JBoss AS 5.1 instance, which allows it to leverage many AS/MC features, and comes with a preview release of the new Teiid administration console. The connector API has been separated into Translators and JCA components, with the aim of simplifying the process of adding new integration sources to Teiid. XML/Relational logic has been replaced by the SQL/XML XMLTABLE.
Cache Fixes for Apache Cassandra 0.6.3
Apache Cassandra have announced version 0.6.3.
This release fixes cache capacity only being recalculated once and the cache size calculation for when the size is 100%. JMX metrics have been added for row-level bloom filter false positives, and a Redhat init script has been added to contrib.
A new Scala STM expert group has been launched on Google Groups.
