Oracle Will Continue With OpenJDK ‘like Sun did’ and Mule 3 is in the Cloud
PLUS, second RC of JPA Diagram Editor 0.5 and first milestone for XQDT 0.8.0.
Oracle Will Continue With OpenJDK “like Sun did.”
Henrik Ståhl of Oracle has blogged about OpenJDK, in an attempt to clear up some of the questions that have been flying around the Internet over the past few weeks. He states that Oracle will continue to work with the OpenJDK codebase and the OpenJDK community “like Sun did,” and that the JDK will continue to be developed under a GPL license. He encourages the community to continue getting involved in the JDK project, and promises that Oracle will shed more light on this topic at the JavaOne conference, next week.
Mule in the Cloud
Mule 3 is here!
Mule is an open source Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) platform. This release adds a set of capabilities for enabling developers to integrate data and applications with SaaS and cloud-based web applications. This ‘Mule Cloud Connect’ feature includes out-of-the-box connectors for cloud, SaaS and Web 2.0 providers, such as Facebook and Amazon Web Services; and native REST support for publishing JAX-RS and consuming RESTful services. It also features new capabilities for consuming XML and JSON data formats.
Mule 3 also gets pattern-based configuration for performing tasks such as publishing Web Services and REST services, and configuring Web Service proxies.
JPA Diagram Editor 0.5 RC2 Released
The JPA Diagram Editor project has published 0.5 RC2.
This release fixes a number of bugs, including a problem with the JPA editor creating Java entities from mapped superclass, and lack of error messaging when a persistence provider library was missing. Deleting a project now successfully closes the diagram and the relation attribute is visualised; previously, a bug prevented this visualisation. The full list of bug fixes, is available online.
Please note that this build requires Graphiti 0.7.0 RC1. One more RC is planned before the official 0.4 release, which will be compatible with Helios and Graphiti 0.7.
