Apache UIMA Replaces Original CPM

The Apache UIMA project has announced the release of Apache UIMA
AS version 2.3.1. UIMA AS replaces the original Collection
Processing Management scaleout in the core UIMA framework. It
includes the base UIMA SDK and augments it with scaleout
capability. This version upgrades to Apache ActiveMQ 5.4.1 and
extends the UIMA AS service JMX API to dump service state. The UIMA
AS Primitive Service has been modified to optionally dump JVM stack
if the process() method takes too long. More information on the
changes is available at the project’s JIRA. The sources and binaries can be
downloaded from the Apache UIMA website.

Early Release of Maven Support in Bndtools

Neill Bartlett has released an “Alpha” quality pre-release of
Maven support for Bndtools. Currently,
M2Eclipse is required to enable the Maven support, as M2Eclipse
provides the build-time classpath that allows Eclipse to compile
the Java sources. Bndtools projects can still be built with Bnd,
and users will not be required to adopt Maven in order to use
Bndtools. Instructions on how to get the Bndtools Alpha, are
available at Bartlett’s website.

Acceleo’s Indigo Release

Mariot Chauvin has blogged about what we can expect in the
Indigo release of Acceleo, including Ant tasks
and improved Maven support. Documentation capabilities will also be
added for query, module and template, and documentation will be
available on mouse over and during code completions.

The latest 3.x maintenance builds can be downloaded from the
Acceleo update site.
