Drools 5.4.0.Beta1

The business logic integration platform moves to 5.4.0.Beta1. This version finally introduces the simulation and testing work that has been talked about for so long. It will provide a unified environment for simulation and testing over time for rules, workflow and event processing.




RHQ Driftmonitoring

The systems management suite added drift monitoring. Drift monitoring provides the ability to monitor changes in files and to determine if those files are in or out of compliance with a desired state. In other words, if I installed an application and someone changes files in that installation, I can be told when those changes occurred and I can analyze those changes. John Mazz has put together a demo to illustrate these concepts

It's been a little quiet this week, because many JBoss folks did attend or speak at JavaOne this year. If you didn't make to JavaOne yourself, make sure you pick one the upcoming dates to meet us:
