Hi CARGO enthusiasts;
CARGO 1.1.0 has been out for just over a month now, and we have had important bug fixes and improvements since. We therefore are very happy to announce CARGO 1.1.1.
Wonder what has changed? Here is a short list:
- A certain number of user inquiries made us realize that there has been a confusion around the
wait parameter of the start ANT task and Maven goal of CARGO. Indeed, most other similar tools have a clearer separation:
- A "run" task/goal, which starts the container and waits until the user decides to stop it.
- A "start" task/goal, which starts the container and hands over to the next task/goal (run integration tests, for example).
- With version 1.1.1, CARGO also implements that behaviour.
- Of course the
wait parameter remains available AND will remain so until CARGO version 1.3.0 at least.
- The various installers (introduced with CARGO 1.1.0) now have homogeneous parameters and default values.
- Fixes and improvements on various containers:
- The JBoss remote deployer now supports a wider range of configurations.
- Jetty 7.x and Tomcat 7.x remote deployers are now better documented to avoid some mistakes.
- Various improvements on the JOnAS containers:
- Added datasource support on JOnAS 4.x and 5.x.
- Added extra classpath support on JOnAS 5.x.
- Added undeploy and redeploy capabilities to the JOnAS 5.x local deployer.
webapp directory of Tomcat containers is now configurable.
