Resin 4.0.16 Release
Resin 4.0.16, just released on March 17, features a number of bug fixes, improved Java EE 6 Web Profile support, and updates to cutting edge technologies such as WebSocket. Coming out just over a month after the previous release, the bug fixes in Resin 4.0.16 are part of Caucho’s focus on quality and responsiveness to customer needs and communication.
The effort for full compliance with Java EE 6 Web Profile standard continues as well with improvements to CDI compatibility. Having a robust, interoperable CDI implementation means making sure that CDI-based open source projects produced by the community work well with Resin. Resin 4.0.16 builds on this goal with additional testing and bug fixes for public CDI extensions.
TheServerSide Java Symposium 2011 conference report by Caucho
The TSS Java Symposium earlier this month in Las Vegas proved to be a great event, with Caucho® engineers and staff giving four talks and chatting with attendees and speakers at the Caucho® booth. As always, TSSJS had a great atmosphere with the focus being on technology instead of hype. Caucho® engineer Reza Rahman presented a number of practical and timely topics such as testing Java EE applications and caching at all points of an application and deployment. CDI received a lot of attention this year as the technology has matured and grown a community. Reza’s talk on the CDI landscape drew a healthy crowd and spotlighted this powerful technology.
