Sonic's submission, which provides a fundamentally more reliable messaging transport infrastructure for SOAP, will help accelerate Web service adoption. Sonic's contributions will provide the first asynchronous capabilities to the core Apache Axis engine.

Apache's Tomcat 5.5 is First Release Ever to Use Eclipse JDT Java Compiler

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has unveiled its next-generation Java server, Tomcat 5.5. This first release in the new 5.5 branch, users are warned, is not very stable according to Tomcat's developers. Apache's new Java server does contain some major advances, but many are only partially realized with the release. One of the most significant changes in Tomcat 5.5 is the use of open source Eclipse Java development tools (JDT). Developers are no longer incumbent on Sun's SDK to compile Java. Furthermore, the use of Eclipse JDT means that the full JDK is no longer a requisite... (more)

Forrest can generate static documents, or be used as a dynamic server, or be deployed by its automated facility. New features in this version include an architecture for Plugins which enables a smaller Forrest core and the ability to... (more)
