The seventh release of the framework
A little late, we have release a new version of Open Mobile IS (R7). This is maintly a maintenance release. The main evolution is the use of the http client apache version to optimize synchro file download and some bug corrections. We have done a lot of work on several module that we hope to release soon. CVS repository is now uptodate with source code.

This release adds the following new features :
* Add Apache HTTPclient for synchro HTTP connection conduit. Use Apache HTTPClient class by default in synchro. Define the org.openmobileis.synchro.direct.conduit.class in synchro.properties to change synchr conduit class. Apache HTTPclient synchro conduit offert better memory management for big synchro file.
* Add an example of a file synchronisation in MyCRM appli.
* Update SystemAPI to plugg multiple DLL depending on the system. Change pocketPC dll in ppcsystemapi.dll. Add method to get terminal unique id.
* Add BOTH_SIDE option to the Synchro conflic resolver.
* Optimize pregenerated fodb synchro file. Files are not loaded in memory.
* add syncStatus attribute to OpenMSPException to force the return status of a synchro target. SyncStatus greater or equals than 300 are considered as error status for the synchro.

Bug Corrections :
* Add buffered stream in ziputil to increase synchro performance.
* Bug correction in FODBLabelFactory.
* Bug correction in the new file synchronisation.

The incompatibilities with the R6 version are :
* Change the fillTemplateWithSessionData in StepEditService.
* Change interface IndexServletContentListener
* default HTTP lib is now Apache. classpath must be updated.

Open Mobile IS is providing the sixth release of the framework
The Open Mobile IS team is proud to annouce the realease of a new pre release R7 of the project. We didn't reach the finale version because the OSGI module integration is more complicated than expected and we start several other Open Mobile IS extention that didn't allow us to spend much time in the OSGI module. Never the less we have done the terminal part of OSGI. We have to finish the server and the synchronisation part.
There is now a folder call "deploy" in the zip archive that contains the OSGI Open Mobile IS bundle and a new folder named bundle in the MyCRM example that contains the MyCRM bundle

This release adds the following new features :
* adds a progress bar GUI during synchronsation. Do show it add the org.openmobileis.synchro.ui.progressbar=true in openmis.properties.
* adds proxy support in synchro connection. adds the following properties in synchro.properties :
org.openmobileis.synchro.proxy.address=<proxy adresse>
org.openmobileis.synchro.proxy.port=<proxy port>
org.openmobileis.synchro.proxy.login=<proxy login>
org.openmobileis.synchro.proxy.realm=<proxy authrealm>
org.openmobileis.synchro.proxy.pass=<proxy pass>

* to support template in jar file, we change de fremarker version. We integrate the 2.3.8 version. The new fremarker jar is freemarker238.jar. Template can now be put inside the application jar.
* better simultaneous synchronisation management
* increase performance of the synchronisation of big file (several Mb).

The incompatibilities with the R5 version are :
* FODB init and getCurrentFODB change. See the SimpleOpenMISInit class. FODB manage must be registered now by calling registerManager(). To get access to FODB use FastObjectDBManager.getManager().getCurrentFODB(). The call is now compatible with all manager’s call.
* Fremarker use new the 2.3.8 version by default. Update your freemarker.jar file with the freemarker238.jar.

Last points : We started severals projects around Open Mobile IS to add better support for PocketPC and Linux PDA, Push synchronisation, P2P synchronisation to facilitate the synchronisation of big file, PIM management.


Open mobile IS is an open source project that aims at providing all the necessary tools, API, and documents which enable effective nomad applications development.
