— A new tool integrated within Fiorano Studio for configuring a selected profile, allowing simpler configuration of options like Database URI, username/password, Naming Service bindings and more;Full Feature C/C++ Client Libraries
— Provides natively cross-compiled, JNI-based C/C++ libraries and thin C/C++ native libraries with a full list of features including XA, HA, and client-side persistence;NIO-Based Connection Manager
— A new connection management module to maximize FioranoMQ server scalability on all Java platforms, using JRE 1.4+ based NIO support.New Component Adapter Framework
Enabling many fresh capabilities in FioranoMQ 8.0 is a new Component Adapter Framework. The framework, which includes a container and core server components such as the Naming Service, Connection Manager, Repeater, and Bridge Manager among others, allows all components to be embedded within the server process, thus allowing more efficient routing and dispatching as well as centralized management.
The Component Adapter Framework configuration also provides unprecedented control in the hands of system administrators, not only for choosing a deployment profile which exactly matches requirements, but also for maximizing the utilization of available resources.
