Local Discovery

It is now possible to start a Cohorte node without specifiying the transport protocol. In this case, the isolates of the same node will be discoverted using a new local discovery protocol. The communication between isolates will use HTTP over the local internet address


Webadmin is now secured and more productive

Webadmin is a web page allowing to monitor the whole application in one space. Webadmin has received lot of attention in this release. We resume them in this list:

  • Basic authentication securing the access to it
  • A composition tab showing the actual composition file of the application
  • Stopping buttons are now under a menu, not directly accessed
  • Confirmation is required when stopping the application
  • We can now see the list of components, instances and logs of Java isolates

One distribution for all platforms

Before this release, users have to download the adequate distribution to their operating system (Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X). Now we have a full distribution that supports the three platforms. When downloading the distribution, you have to call the setup script to prepare your freshly downloaded distribution to be adequate with your platform.

Update of Apache Felix to its latest version

We have updated the embeeded Apache Felix OSGi platform to its actual latest version (5.4.0). All the internal components are updated adequently. One important one is the Jetty Http Server which now supports Servlets 3.0+.

Best Regards,

The Cohorte Team.
