I realized as I was writing the Resin Refcard that there are probably a few options and concepts that many users don’t fully understand. In this post, I review the Resin watchdog architecture and show the syntax while highlighting recent changes. I’ll also describe some of the thoughts we have for the future of the watchdog and solicit your ideas and input.
Woohoo! I’m pretty excited about this one. There are so many new cool features. Here’s the list:
- Resin IoC - Fully WebBeans (JSR-299) compliant IoC container
- Embedded Resin - Use Resin in an existing application or within a unit testing framework like JUnit.
- Support for gobs of 3rd-party packages: Maven2, Ivy, Mule, Struts2, CXF, Wicket, and more!
- Lots of updates to security, including an update to the authenticator configuration
- Exposure of the Resin JMS queues as BlockingQueues
- Watchdog updates
- Security updates
- Resin remoting
