This is the first release of the module that’s intended for deployment on JBoss AS 6. The compatibility with Glassfish version 3.1 has also been improved.

Apache Gora 0.1-incubating has been released from the Apache Incubator. Gora is an Object Relation Mapping framework for column stores, which particularly focuses on Apache Hadoop. Gora aims to become the standard data representation and persistence framework for big data. Planned for future releases, is a Java-friendly common API for accessing data regardless of its location, and functionality for persisting objects to Lucene and Solr indexes.

IBM CICS Adds OSGi Support

Version 4.2 of IBM’s CICS Transaction Server transaction processing solution has been announced, and will contain support for applications packaged as OSGi bundles.

“The JVM server infrastructure with integrated OSGi support and tooling provides a new industry standard Java runtime environment in CICS,” say IBM at the announcement. Virgo project lead Glyn Normington predicts that CICS will use Equinox as its OSGi framework, and he is positive about the impact this development will have on the OSGi ecosystem: “this is heart-warming news to me, both as an OSGi proponent and as a former member of the CICS development team,” he writes.

A beta version of CICS 4.2 is available now, and can be used until July 31st, 2011.
