JBoss Asylum PODCast on Infinispan

So for those hankering to hear my voice again, check out JBoss Asylum Eposide 7 - a PODCast of yours truly talking about Infinispan and my views on cloud data storage. This was recorded at Devoxx 2009 in Antwerp, with Max Andersen and Emmanuel Bernard.

New video demo: Monitoring Infinispan with Jopr console

Over the past few weeks, I've been working on improving how Infinispan is managed and/or monitored and I can finally share some of the results of that effort with you.

In the coming weeks, I'll be sharing some in-depth flash movies explaining everything from installing Jopr, our enterprise management solution for JBoss middleware, to installing the Infinispan Jopr plugin, discovering Infinispan instances automatically or manually...etc

However, before that, I'd like to share a video demo with you where I briefly show a three-node Infinispan cluster being monitored. It demonstrates graphical measurements, and non-graphical information of running Infinispan instances, addition or removal of monitored metrics and finally, execution of management operations on a Infinispan instance.

The Infinispan version used in the video was a snapshot of Infinispan 4.0.0, but you should be able to replicate what's shown in the video with Infinispan 4.0.0.CR3 or higher.

Enjoy :)

Infinispan's third release candidate

I'd happy to announce that after a long wait, we've finally released Infinispan 4.0.0.CR3 - the latest and greatest in a series of release candidates, which will hopefully be the last before we cut the final release. As such, it is really important that you try out CR3 - test it, stress it out, and provide as much feedback as possible on the user forums.

In this release, we've:
  • Fixed the dependency issues on RHQ snapshots, which was causing problems for several people
  • Added the ability to configure the cache instance used by the REST server
  • Updated the query API so it is not restricted to String keys
  • Loads more stuff
As always, the full set of changes are on JIRA. Download this release here, and as always, provide feedback here.
