I'm happy to announce the 3rd developer snapshot of the IronJacamar 1.1 series.
Full release notes are here
This release saw the introduction of our new converter tool, which can convert the old JBoss Application Server -ds.xml format to the formats used in JBoss Application Server 7.
The tool is run by:
./converter.sh -ra old-ds.xml new-ra.xml
old-ds.xml is your old resource adapter deployment and
new-ra.xml is the XML snippet you can use in the
resource-adapters subsystem in JBoss AS7.
Almost the same for datasources:
./converter.sh -ds old-ds.xml new-ds.xml
so, copy the content of
new-ds.xml to the
datasources subsystem and change it to fit your requirements.
Note, that the tool does a best effort so changes are most likely needed. Feedback is of course welcomed in our forum.
We have fixed a number of bugs too in this release, especially a bug around handling of native libraries inside resource adapter archives.
We have added a new sample that shows a basic resource adapter using a native library to our documentation.
Most of the bug fixes will be available in the upcoming JBoss Application Server 7.1.0.Beta1 release, and the rest will follow in a future release of the server. We are also working on a nice new JCA subsystem that should make it easier to integrate JCA with other technologies - did somebody say Spring ?!?
For Those About to Rock, We Salute You !
