I'm happy to announce the 3rd developer snapshot of the IronJacamar 1.1 series.

Full release notes are here

Converter

This release saw the introduction of our new converter tool, which can convert the old JBoss Application Server -ds.xml format to the formats used in JBoss Application Server 7.

The tool is run by:

./converter.sh -ra old-ds.xml new-ra.xml

where old-ds.xml is your old resource adapter deployment and new-ra.xml is the XML snippet you can use in the resource-adapters subsystem in JBoss AS7.

Almost the same for datasources:

./converter.sh -ds old-ds.xml new-ds.xml

so, copy the content of new-ds.xml to the datasources subsystem and change it to fit your requirements.

Note, that the tool does a best effort so changes are most likely needed. Feedback is of course welcomed in our forum.

Other stuff

We have fixed a number of bugs too in this release, especially a bug around handling of native libraries inside resource adapter archives.

We have added a new sample that shows a basic resource adapter using a native library to our documentation.

The Road Ahead

Most of the bug fixes will be available in the upcoming JBoss Application Server 7.1.0.Beta1 release, and the rest will follow in a future release of the server. We are also working on a nice new JCA subsystem that should make it easier to integrate JCA with other technologies - did somebody say Spring ?!?

For Those About to Rock, We Salute You !
