PLUS, Gradle 1.0 M3, and Spring GemFire 1.0.1.

JCP Approves Project Coin

The Executive Committee for SE/EE have unanimously approved Project Coin. Oracle, Intel Corp, Eclipse, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Keil Werner, Ericsson, SAP AG, Fujitsu, and Google all voted in favour of JSR 334. However, Google took the opportunity to argue against the licensing terms:

“Google’s yes vote on this JSR represents our wholehearted endorsement of its technical content. Because the results of this JSR would enter the platform via the corresponding umbrella JSR, this vote needn’t and doesn’t reflect our position on licensing terms. Our position on these terms has not changed since we voted on the corresponding umbrella JSR (#336)”

IBM also pointed out that they were voting in favour of the technical content, not the licensing terms.

Third Milestone for Gradle 1.0

The third milestone of Gradle 1.0 has been made available. This release changes the way Ivy repositories are defined, as Gradle now chooses the appropriate repository implementation based on the URL patterns supplied by the developer. The milestone also introduces a new way to query for all the source directories of a source set:

sourceSets.main.allSource.srcDirs.each { dir -> println "src dir: $dir" }

Please note that this release contains some breaking changes. These include renaming the install task to installApp, in addition to a string of package and class name changes. More information is available at the Gradle wiki.

Spring GemFire 1.0.1 Released

Spring GemFire 1.0.1 is now available. The project aims to facilitate building Spring-powered applications using GemFire as distributed data management platform. Version 1.0.1 is a maintenance release that upgrades to GemFire, adds the ‘statistics’ attribute to all write regions, and improves the dependency initialisation between cache and pools. More information on all the changes, is available at the Changelog.

Grizzly 2.1 Released with AJP Support

Grizzly 2.1 has been released. Initially, this release was intended as a patch release of 2.0, but as it contains new features, the release has been bumped up to 2.1. Version 2.1 adds support for the Apache JServ Protocol (AJP), implemented via a pair of Filters. The AJP can proxy inbound requests from a web server through to an application server that sits behind the web server. With Grizzly 2.1 developers now have the option of processing multipart form requests from a client, and LZMA Compression is supported at the core framework level. More information on the new features is available at the Release Notes.
