[ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents HttpCore 4.2 GA Released

Categories: Apache

The Apache HttpComponents project is pleased to announce the first
stable (GA) release of HttpComponents HttpCore 4.2. The most notable
features included in this release are connection pool components for
blocking and non-blocking HTTP connections and new asynchronous client
and server side protocol handlers.

New protocol handling API used in conjunction with connection pooling
components is expected to make development of asynchronous HTTP client
agents and HTTP proxies easier and less error prone.

Connection pool components are based on mature code migrated from
HttpClient and HttpAsyncClient modules but have a slightly different API
that makes a better use of Java standard concurrent primitives.

Sample application shipped with the release include an example of an
HTTP file server capable of direct channel (zero copy) data transfer and
an example of a non-blocking, fully streaming reverse proxy.

About HttpComponents Core – HttpCore is a set of low level HTTP
transport components that can be used to build custom client and server
side HTTP services with a minimal footprint. HttpCore supports two I/O
models: a blocking I/O model based on the classic Java I/O and a
non-blocking, event driven I/O model based on Java NIO. The blocking I/O
model may be more appropriate for data intensive, low latency scenarios,
whereas the non-blocking model may be more appropriate for high latency
scenarios where raw data throughput is less important than the ability
to handle thousands of simultaneous HTTP connections in a resource
efficient manner.

The Apache Airavata (Incubating) team is pleased to announce the immediate
availability of the Airavata 0.2-INCUBATING release.

 

The release can be obtained from the Apache Airavata download page - http://incubator.apache.org/airavata/about/downloads.html

 

 

Apache Airavata is a software toolkit currently used to build science gateways but that has a much wider potential use. It provides features to compose, manage, execute, and monitor small to large scale applications and workflows on computational resources ranging from local clusters to national grids and computing clouds. Gadgets interfaces to Airavata back end services can be deployed in open social containers such as Apache Rave and modify them to suit their needs. Airavata builds on general concepts of service oriented computing, distributed messaging, and workflow composition and orchestration.

 

For general information on Apache Airavata, please visit the project website:

 

Disclaimer:
Apache Airavata is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software
Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator. Incubation is required
of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the
infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized
in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.  While incubation
status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of
the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by
the ASF.

Facebook plugin update.  On 5.3.12 the Facebook plug-in no longer posts stuff to Facebook using “blog” as the name of the app.  That morning it now posts as ” … shared a link” which is why the posts on Facebook look different then they used to.  The plugin author has been notified of the change on Facebook’s end.
