  1. Impala dynamic modules 1.0 RC1 released (4 messages)

    I am pleased to announce the release of Impala 1.0 RC1. Impala 1.0 RC1 contains a number of big feature improvements from the previous release: * a more powerful and flexible mechanism for mapping web requests to and within modules, making it easier to build truly multi-module web applications. See http://code.google.com/p/impala/wiki/WebModuleBasedHandlerRegistration. * a new Spring web namespace for registering servlets, filters and other web artifacts in Impala web modules. * enhancements to make the automatic module reloading mechanism more robust and suitable for applying in production environments. * various other minor bug fixes and enhancements, particularly in the areas of build, dynamic services and class loading. Impala is a dynamic module framework for Java enterprise application development, building on the Spring framework. Impala is the simplest and most TDD-friendly way to bring dynamic modularity into Java applications, making it possible to build large, complex applications which are simple to test and productive to develop. With Impala you can dynamically add, update and remove parts of a running application, dramatically reducing build/deploy/test cycles. Impala remains true to Spring's original premise of simplicity and does not require any additional third party tooling or runtime environment support. It just "works out of the box".

  2. Is it tested and/or supported within elder versions of websphere (i.e. was 6.1/7) or weblogic? That would be quite a good selling point over osgi - that will be eventually part of every app server but it will take time
  3. It might not work on very old versions of these as it requires Java 1.5 or above. I haven't up to this point tested Impala over a full range of app servers, but I also haven't had any reports of it not working on any particular one. That being said, I prefer to think of Impala as a simpler option to alternative OSGi-based frameworks, rather than just a temporary one while the app servers play catch up ;) Phil

    Well, I would be quite interested to hear from someone who took a run on WebSphere, WebLogic and jBoss before trying it on my own (yeah I'm a lazy boy...)

    I understand but even if you don't like it a selling point is always a selling point :) Ciao, Raffaele
  5. Congrats Phil!
