We're very pleased to announce the general availability of a new milestone of JOnAS 5.3.

New features in this release:

  • OSGi framework is now using/providing OSGi r4.3 API and is using Felix v4.0.1
  • JDK7 compliance

There are also plenty of bug fixes and components upgrades : #24 issues closed !

Two profiles for JOnAS 5.3.0 M5 are available for download

Remember : If JOnAS ANT tasks are used, note that these tasks are now modular and are only providing tasks for the services included in the assembly.
People may still use now deprecated ANT tasks by using the library JONAS_ROOT/lib/common/ow_jonas_ant_deprecated.jar
