Paul Sandoz Leaves Oracle for CloudBees

Paul Sandoz has left Oracle for CloudBees, following a 13 year long career with Sun/Oracle. Sandoz has previously led the development of the Jersey Reference Implementation of JAX-RS. At CloudBees, he will focus on Jenkins, Nectar and DEV@Cloud, which allows users to develop and build software in the cloud using Jenkins as a service.

The OSGi bundle is independent from both Bndtools and Eclipse, and can be used in a standalone OSGi runtime. The default mode uses an embedded HTTP server based on the NanoHTTPD embeddable HTTP server. Bndtools Runtime Controller can run on Java version 1.4 or higher and OSGi R4.0 or higher.

Meanwhile, EGit 0.11 adds new actions that allow users to directly push to and fetch from the remote stored in the upstream configuration of the currently checked out branch.

Simplified Fetch and Push Wizards have also been implemented, with a focus on aligning EGit’s behaviour with fetch and push in c git.

Please note that GWT 2.2 only has deprecated support for Java 1.5, which could result in warnings when building applications. Developers are encouraged to upgrade their version of Java in order to correct these warnings.
