Release Notes

New and Noteworthy

Welcome to the 0.3 release.

New Components

Proxy

The proxy component was added in 0.3. Proxy allows you to generate proxyies based on interfaces or classes, eg object damping. Proxy provides a service to both blueprint and JNDI.

Major updates

Application.

The application component in 0.3 provides a runtime in which OSGi applications are isolated from each other, and the provisioning support that it requires. These changes mean that the 0.3 release of aplication is significantly different from the 0.2 release.

The resolver also supports external bundle repositories in 0.3.

Blueprint

Blueprint namespace support has been added. This makes it possible to look up Blueprint components from Web or Persistence bundles.
