The ControlTier project is proud to announce the release of ControlTier
ControlTier 3.4.8 Release Notes
Release Date: 9/28/2009
ControlTier is a cross-platform build and deployment framework and
toolkit. ControlTier coordinates service management activities across
multiple nodes and application tiers. It supplements and replaces
homegrown service management and deployment scripts with a
well-defined set of lifecycle commands that abstract the details of
various types of deployments. For further about ControlTier and what
problems it solves, please see our introduction.
ControlTier requires Sun Java JDK 1.5.0 or 1.6.0. ControlTier is licensed
the Apache License, version 2.0.
ControlTier 3.4.8 is the first ControlTier release to support Java 6 for
the client and server. Downloads and release notes can be found at:
New since 3.4.7:
* Both the client and server now support Java 6.
* Workbench and the ProjectBuilder#find-objects command can now export
project.xml formatted data.
* The Maven plugin has been updated to support static commands. See the
Documentation is available on the Wiki
This is the first ControlTier release to support Java 6 for both the client
server. We have resolved issues with the Jobcenter web application that
occur when running under Java 6.
Notable bug fixes:
* Conflation of Node name vs. hostname cropped up again in node-dispatch
CTL and the integration with Workbench. It should finally be completely
* ProjectBuilder#find-objects has duplicate results: The find-objects
will now only show unique results.
* Java 6 support: Both the client and server now support Java 6.
* project.xml export: Workbench and the ProjectBuilder#find-objects command
now export project.xml formatted data. Either use the '-out <filename>'
option to find-objects, or click the "XML" toolbar button when viewing a
resource in Workbench.
* Maven plugin static-command support: The Maven plugin has been updated to
support static commands.
