LA JOLLA, CA — February 27, 2008 – Caucho® Technology, Inc., a leading open source Java-PHP application server vendor, today announced the release of Resin version 3.1.5.
Resin leads the industry with its Inversion of Control (IoC) container. Version 3.1.5 includes integrations with third party Open Source projects and features such as:
- Embedded Resin
- Improved administration
- Maven and Ivy repositories
- Improved IoC
- Integration with Mule, Spring and other Open Source projects
- Improvements and tools for system administrators
Resin 3.1.5 has the first-of-its-kind implementation of the WebBeans (JSR-299) specification. This makes it easier for developers to manage and develop applications using the well-adopted IoC pattern. Resin 3.1.5 integrates Resin IoC with Resin EJB, creating one unified framework. The new version of Resin also has specific integrations with third party Open Source projects, allowing them to use Resin IoC. Mule, Spring, Struts2, and Wicket are now part of the growing list of projects with native Resin IoC integrations.
Caucho® is dedicated to making Resin and other Caucho® products compatible with the most popular third party frameworks. The Resin 3.1.5 release features compatibility fixes and documentation on the Caucho® Wiki for
specific projects such as ActiveMQ, Hibernate, Hudson, Jackrabbit, Terracotta, and Trinidad.
Resin 3.1.5 is now embeddable, meaning that existing applications and unit testing frameworks such as JUnit
can launch instances of Resin easily, with a well-defined API. This feature makes it possible to put Resin anywhere, either as part of a production environment or part of enterprise-internal tests.
Resin 3.1.5 also features improvements targeted at system administrators. The Resin Watchdog is now more reliable than ever and has new capabilities specifically for ISP-type environments. Authentication is also easier to configure, giving access to the most commonly used security paradigms. For enterprises with specific authentication requirements, Resin 3.1.5 makes it simple to integrate custom plugins. Starting with Resin 3.1.5, Resin is now available via Maven and Ivy repositories. This feature makes it easier to deploy new versions of Resin across the enterprise by leveraging the dependency capabilities of these two tools.
Scott Ferguson, President of Caucho® Technology, said, “This is an incredibly exciting release for us. Resin IoC is now more mature with new users discovering the power of this framework all the time. We have written custom code for a slew of third party frameworks and libraries to let them use Resin IoC in a very natural way.” Ferguson added,
“This release had us looking to our friends and partners in the Open Source community and making sure that we worked well together. Resin now integrates smoothly with these Open Source projects on the technical end and our users know how to do the integrations themselves by writing documentation tailored to each project.”
“Developers and administrators have a lot to look forward to in this release,” said Emil Ong, Chief Evangelist of Caucho® Technology. “First we have embedded Resin. This lets you drop in Resin anywhere: If you have examples or OEM products that you need to ship, drop in embedded Resin. If you have unit tests that you want to make sure work on Resin, embed it there too. For example, Resin now works in JUnit.” Ong continued, “We have found that administrators are one of the driving forces behind Resin’s adoption in many enterprises because it is easy to manage. In that tradition, we have simplified security configuration, made it easier to launch and monitor Resin, and put Resin into Maven and Ivy repositories to make deployment a cinch.”
