Version 12

    WildFly 8.0.0.Alpha3 Release Notes

     

    Notable Updates

    • EJB invocations now use HTTP upgrade over port 8080
      • This is a major step towards the port reduction initiative we have for WildFly 8
    • WildFly can now be ran as a Windows service
    • Mod_cluster functionality restored
    • Bean Validation 1.1 now supported with JAX-RS and CDI
    • Undertow subsystem and integration improvements
    • Bytecode enhanced entities now supported in JPA
    • Two phase persistence unit bootstrap improves JPA integration with CDI
    • User creation script also supports groups
    • Initial support for a syslog logging appender

    Compatiblity Notes

    • OSGi support has been removed from WildFly and will be provided as an add-on by the JBoss OSGi project

    • Port reduction will eventually lead to us removing a few native ports in our default configurations in favor of the new HTTP upgrade approach which reuses WildFly's HTTP ports. This is likely to happen in the Beta time-frame. We will provide instructions on how to re-enable them when this change occurs.
