What is TorqueBox?
TorqueBox is a Ruby application server built on JBoss AS7 and JRuby. In addition to being one of the fastest Ruby servers around, it supports Rack-based web frameworks, and provides simple Ruby interfaces to standard JavaEE services, including scheduled jobs, caching, messaging, and services.
What's special about 2.0.0?
This is the third beta for our 2.0.0 release, which is a major upgrade over the 1.x you may already be familiar with. Notable inclusions in 2.0.0 include:
- JRuby 184.108.40.206 (with better Ruby 1.9 support)
- JBoss AS7 (faster boot time, smaller memory footprint)
- Multi-resource distributed XA transactions
We'd love it if you give our beta3 release a whirl and report any issues you find in JIRA. If all goes as planned, we should have our first 2.0.0 candidate release out in a few weeks!
What's In Beta 3?
We admit it. Sometimes unit testing is difficult. While TorqueSpec is great
for integration tests, you don't always want or need the entire TorqueBox
torquebox-no-op. Joe Kutner, a long-time TorqueBox
user has written this gem to help you out in those situations. It's now
maintained in the TorqueBox source. Look for a post from Joe on these pages
HornetQ updated to 2.2.10
This release brings with it an updated HornetQ, fixing a small memory leak for each published message and issues with large messages in a cluster.
One of the things that we wanted to add to TorqueBox is automatic validation for your app's configuration. So, we now validate configuration at deploy time according to our schema. If it doesn't pass, we'll fail fast and stop the deployment with an appropriate error, which should greatly reduce confusing errors related to erroneous configuration.
