Versions 2.0.0 of Apache Shindig and MINA Released
PLUS, the Spring Integration Samples move out of the Spring Integration distribution.
Shindig Gets More OpenSocial 1.0 Support
Shindig have announced the release of version 2.0.0.
Apache Shindig is an OpenSocial reference implementation for
hosting OpenSocial apps. It provides the code for rendering gadgets
and proxy requests, and handling REST and RPC requests.
With this release, the interfaces have been refactored and all of
the subsystems have been cleaned up and updated, so Apache Shindig
2.0.0 now supports “most of” the OpenSocial 1.0 features. It also
experimental support for Activity Streams, PubSub-2 and Google Wave
Apache Shindig 2.0.0 can be downloaded now.
Apache MINA Network App Framework Upgrades to JUnit
Version 2.0.0 of Apache MINA has been
Apache MINA is a network application framework that provides an
abstract, event-driven, asynchronous API over transports such as
TCP/IP and UDP/IP vis Java NIO. This release replaces JUnit 3.8
constructions with JUnit 4.7 annotations, adds the missing Javadoc
and adds an entry in the FAQ that explains how to close a session
and dispose the connector correctly. The binary and source packages
should now be separate files, and sendfile support has been added
to APR transport. There is also a list of bug fixes.
Get Your Hands on Spring Integration Samples –
SpringSource have announced that, starting with the current
release of Spring Integration, the samples will no longer be
included in the Spring Integration distribution.
The samples will now have their own Git SCM repository and JIRA
Issue Tracking system, and will have their own development
lifecycle. This lifecycle will not be dependent on the lifecycle of
the framework releases, but the repository will still be tagged
with each major release for compatibility reasons.
“The great benefit to the community is that we can now add more
samples and make them available to you right away without waiting
for the release of the framework,” reads the announcement.
