The configuration file validator is now more strict about the namespace of resin:type. The resin prefix must be defined as:
resin:message replaces resin:log since <resin:log> and <log> conflicted. resin:log is now deprecated.
Use persistent-store instead.
Added com.caucho.sql.UserConnection.discardConnection() to allow termination of broken connections undetected by the ping functionality.
For debugging, when database connections aren't closed, the allocation stack traces are now automatically saved for subsequenct allocations.
Adds the HttpOnly flag to all cookies generated in a web-app to avoid cross-site scripting attacks.
If true, Resin will only check that the servlet-class exists when it's actually used. Normally, Resin will validate the servlet-class immediately.
ssl-session-cookie specifies an alternate session cookie for use in secure connections. This prevents the possibiliy of snooping the non-SSL connection and then replaying the session cookie.
ear-deploy and war-deploy now have an expand-prefix to select the expansion prefix, e.g. _ear_.
Also added require-file.
The <server> section now accepts a <server-header> to override the Server response header.
Class reloading is now available for Resin-OS and can be used with agentlib
Apache directive to set the cached mapping file.
<http> now has a <keepalive-max> attribute.
Path values now support a merge schema. The merge path is a collection of paths, like a classpath. The syntax is: "merge:(foo/bar;baz)", i.e. it uses ';' as a path separator.
The most important use of the merge schema is for a web-app document-directory, allowing for development or customization enhancements without affecting the raw web-app.
The EJB 3.0 @TransactionAttribute capability is now available for any Java class. It is no longer restricted to SessionBeans.
The @TransactionAttribute support can now be applied to any bean without any Resin-specific annotations. In addition, the attribute class is configurable.
The enhancer also supports AOP Alliance MethodInterceptors, allowing for custom annotations.
Logs can now have an mbean-name.
The MBean interface is com.caucho.log.mbean.LogMBean.
Added resin-ejb-jar.xml for EJBs. Resin already parses META-INF/foo.ejb files.
shutdown-wait-max is now also a configurable item in the <resin> block. It's necessary to set the <resin> value as well as the <web-app> value.
Lazy web-apps (start-mode="lazy"), are now automatically undeployed when idle-time is expired (default 2h).
To allow for resin.conf to configure the JVM parameters, resin.jar for Resin-Professional now can start a Resin daemon.
If true, listen to the http ports after the server is done initializing.
The multipart form processing can now accept a "caucho.multipart.form.upload-max" request attribute to set the size on a per-request basis.
The multipart form error now returns a "caucho.multipart.form.error.size".
error-page is now allowed in <server> to handle <busy> pages.
The dispatch functionality of mod_rewrite has been added. Currently, it only supports redirect.
The real-path functionality of mod_rewrite has been added. It applies to the getRealPath mapping.
The DBPool can now be used to create Pools programmatically. It's still strongly recommended to use the configuration file instead.
The servlet-mapping schema was incorrect for the Resin namespace. The correct order is servet-name, url-pattern.
New <server> parameters: invocation-cache-size and invocation-cache-max-url-size (default 256)
The client-read-timeout is now available in cluster-definition.
The caching backing has changed to a more efficient backing store.
The <cache> has a new parameter: max-entry-size.
The cluster session store has changed to a more efficient backing store.
resin:type can now be used in more places, for example in string values, allowing custom classes to computer values.
<resin:resource> (and <resource>) now allow a var="foo" attribute, which sets configuration variables. This lets configuration files set temporary resources without using jndi.
In the following example, the MyBean object has a setData method. The resin:resource creates a temporary variable.
resin:resource is now allowed anywhere, including in a custom bean.
The com.caucho.config.Config facade now makes it easy to use Resin's dependency-injection configuration machinery for custom classes. The configure method takes a Java object and an InputStream to the configuration file and configures the object.
Thanks to Dave Brosius for locating bugs in XML parsing, EJB-QL, and Amber query caching.
Thanks to Bin for adding the batch compilation capability to JspCompiler.
