I'm very happy to announce the IronJacamar 1.0.0.CR1 release, which implements the Java EE Connector Architecture 1.6 specification.
Full release notes are here.
This release saw a new transaction integration which has allowed us to better isolate the interaction with the transaction manager and its components - like recovery.
So if you are looking to integrate a JCA container into your project, it has just become a lot easier.
We have switched the project to use the new JBoss Logging framework, which allows us to assign unique identifiers to logging statements and exception messages.
This integration will ease our quest to identify issues that may pop up when people run their applications.
The release also saw updated in other areas
- Improvements to the code generator
- Added support non JTA datasources
along with the various bug fixes.
Since we have hit the Candidate for Release mark - yay ! - we have created a stable release branch, since this release could be promoted to 1.0.0.Final if no serious issues are found within the next two weeks.
We will work on improving the documentation around areas that could use some - but we don't expect any major changes from this point on.
Our trunk have been switched to 1.1 development - we expect to see the first developer snapshot in August. But more on that later :) However, I will say that there are a lot of exciting things ahead !
So people, test and report any bugs that you may find, as it is almost time for champagne !
For Those About to Rock, We Salute You !
