New CapeDwarf 2.0.0.CR3, with few small tweaks

With World Cup and summer vacation finally behind us, it’s time to do a new CapeDwarf release. This time it only includes a few minor fixes, and of course a GAE version update.

CapeDwarf (finally) gets cron support!

I’m actually surprised on how I was able to miss the cron support for so long, or how come none of the users complained. :-)

It finally caught my attention when I needed it in one of my sandbox apps, that I realised that we have completely forgotten about it — though it’s been around forever.

When implementing something like cron support in Java, it’s probably the only logical choice to use Quartz. And that’s what we’ve done. Of course there are some tricks to consider, specially around clustering support and GAE cron’s natural way of describing trigger times. But that’s where JGroups and existing GAE Tools come in handy.

So, here is the latest CapeDwarf 2.0.0.CR2 distribution:

You’ve got mail and a new site!

As the title - taken from a cheesy romantic movie :-) - says, we now finally have proper mail API support on CapeDwarf.

We also moved our capedwarf.org site to Awestruct and Asciidoctor, plus adding a bunch of content to it — faq, docs, blogs, …

CapeDwarf now uses WildFly 8.0.0.Final underneath, which fixed some of the deployment’ concurrency handling issues.
