ANNOUNCE xmlBlaster release 0.75 (still millenium edition)
release 0.75 is out!
Changes for 0.75 [Mar.28, 2000]
- Konrad completed the fabulous Browser callback framework!
And it works incredible well.
Browsers get instant callback updates from xmlBlaster messages
through a persistent http connection.
It supports many feature like browser pinging, slow
browser queuing etc.
Konrad will write a little tutorial in the next week.
- Added little tool which allows to subscribe
from command line for a message (for testing/debugging).
- Added to internal messages with key oid="__sys__Login"
and key oid="__sys__Logout"
You may subscribe on those messages if you want to be informed
about other clients which login or logout
- Added a xmlBlaster reference handbook to xmlBlaster.org
This page is generated from the requirement XML files in the
xmlBlaster/doc/requirements directory of the distribution.
It is available on our homepage in the 'Doc' section.
- Bugfix if the Callback of a PtP receiver is disappeared,
this usually happens when the receiver crashes without a logout.
Now the XmlBlasterException with e.id="CallbackFailed" it thrown
to the sender, and the message is queued for the receiver
if the qos flag <ForceQueuing> was set.
- Allow clients to ping xmlBlaster, to test reliable the connection.
The xmlBlaster.idl was extended with a ping() method.
Java clients may use CorbaConnection.java to automatically test
ping the connection.
- Added <qos> tag <subscriptionId> for update messages.
This allows the client to find out which of his subscriptions
caused this update.
- Added <qos> tag <state> for update messages.
This is not finished, it always shows OK for the moment.
- Command line parameters (args) and xmlBlaster.property file entries
merged. The 'args' overwrite the property file variables.
Every xmlBlaster.property variable may as well be specified on
command line. The leading "-" or "+" from the command line key is
stripped before it is merged into the properties hash table.
For example, the "-iorFile" command line argument corresponds to
"iorFile" variable in the xmlBlaster.properties file.
- And many more little enhancements
