It is almost a month since we released 4.5.2 and now we’re ready for 4.5.3, which is quite an interesting new release I have to say!
JBoss 7 integration has been greatly improved. The update covers JBoss 7 classloader integration fixes, Weld/CDI plugin improvements, Hibernate plugin update for Hibernate 4. So now the blazing fast Java EE container is even faster with JRebel!
If you have been following the news, you may have noticed a blog post about the new project for Liferay community for improving JRebel user experience with Liferay Portal.
The new release comes with a nice new feature – reloading the JSP hooks for Liferay portal. It is now possible to add/remove the JSP hook to the portal and the ROOT application will be updated accordingly – no redeploys required!
Also, there are nice improvements in JRebel plugin for Spring. Custom XML namespaces handling has been greatly improved. The plugin was updated to cope better with GenericXmlApplicationContext and PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer related changes.
There are more interesting fixes that you could spot in the changelog. Overall JRebel is on track for the 4.6 release in early 2012 – more awesome stuff, more integrations, better plugins, go us!
BTW, we greatly appreciate your feedback. If you have any wishes, what would you like to see in the upcoming versions – don’t hesitate to speak up – write to the forum!
