Hyperic Product Manager on Version 4.5
A single developer coding and debugging an application now saves approximately 5 minutes of waiting each time he/she starts up the application.
JAXenter speaks to Hyperic Product Manager Al Sargent, on the
JAXenter: Hyperic 4.5 upgrades the codebase to
Spring 3.0. What benefits does this bring to the user?
Al Sargent: By switching from JEE to Spring,
the Hyperic team is able to work more efficiently by reducing code
complexity and improving testability, which in turn enables them to
increase the velocity of new features they can deliver to users.
You can read more details at the SpringSource blog.
JAXenter: What motivated the Hyperic team to
switch from JBoss to Apache Tomcat, for this release?
Al Sargent: Developer productivity played a big
role. For example, the switch to Tomcat has improved our
productivity by significantly decreasing startup time. A single
developer coding and debugging an application now saves
approximately 5 minutes of waiting each time he/she starts up the
application. Considering that the developer may restart the
application 12 times a day, it frees up an entire hour per day to
develop new features.
JAXenter: What features are planned for future
Al Sargent: We are quite excited about the
Hyperic roadmap, but we cannot provide details at this time.
