NetKernel News Volume 1 Issue 13

January 29th 2010

What's new this week?

  • Thirteenth newsletter - we're not superstitious.
  • Updates to layer0, visualizer, http transport.
  • First beta release of a NetKernel servlet solution.

Repository Updates

layer-0: INKFRequestReadOnly.getIssueableClone() was updated so that sticky headers are preserved on the cloned request.

visualizer: Fixed so that if the primary argument is null, it doesn't throw NPE either when viewing or saving the trace.

http-server: An update was made to the HTTPBridge so that it attempts to interpret encoding of the text fields in mixed text and file multipart forms. If encoding is not set, which seems to be common with several browsers, then it defaults to UTF-8.

NetKernel Servlet - Beta 1

The Servlet embedded version of NetKernel creates and boots an instance of NetKernel within a JEE Servlet container allowing Servlet based applications to utilize the flexibility, caching and other features of NetKernel within and alongside new and existing more traditional applications.

Download it here...

The solution is self-contained and includes a complete NKSE system ready to go within a servlet environment.

There are three files in this distribution, netkernelservlet.jar, web.jar and timeservice.war. The timeservice.war file is a complete ready-to-use web application which implements a RESTful time web service.

The netkernelservlet.jar file contains the NetKernel Servlet. This is a traditional servlet that can be installed in the WEB-INF/lib/ directory of a web application and configured in the web.xml

A detailed installation and usage guide is provided here...

We have tested in Jetty, Tomcat 6 and JBoss all on OS X. Some testing has been done on Ubuntu and Windows, but this is not complete. We would appreciate if you could test in as many containers as possible and provide us with reports.

(If you found this content via a web search, you might want to know that NetKernel Standard Edition is a complete standalone solution with its own HTTP transports etc etc. It doesn't require a Servlet container and is very efficient on system resources. It can also be deployed as an embedded POJO inside any Java system).

Have a great weekend.
