The Apache Apex community is pleased to announce release 3.5.0 of the Malhar library. The release resolved 63 JIRAs and comes with exciting new features and enhancements, including: Windowed Operator that supports the windowing semantics outlined ... [More] by Apache Beam and Google Cloud DataFlow, including the concepts of event time windows, session windows, watermarks, allowed lateness, and triggering. As of this release, the Windowed Operator manages its state in memory that is checkpointed to DFS, and work is underway to make the state management scalable. High level Java stream API now uses the aforementioned Windowed Operator to support stateful transformation with Apache Beam style windowing semantics. The demo package has examples for usage of the API and more info in this presentation. Introduction of Spillable Data Structures that make use of Managed State. This is an abstraction layer over Managed State that provides ease of use to state management components in custom operators and incremental state saving. Work is underway to take this further in the next release, along with benchmarking for key cardinality and throughput, and to be used by the Windowed Operator for managing large state. Deduper solves a frequent task in processing stream data, to decide whether a given record is a duplicate or not. The documentation explains this in detail. JDBC poll operator, another operator frequently required in Apex use cases. The operator can function as bounded or unbounded source, is idempotent for exactly-once processing and partitionable. An example can be found here. Enricher that essentially joins a stream with a lookup source and can operate on any POJO object. The user can solve this through configuration and does not need to write code for the operator. See documentation which has an example linked. There are more features, enhancements and fixes is this release, see https://s.apache.org/5vQi for full changes. Apache Apex is an enterprise grade native YARN big data-in-motion platform that unifies stream and batch processing. Apex was built for scalability and low-latency processing, high availability and operability. Apex provides unique features that similar platforms currently don't offer, such as fine grained, incremental recovery to only reset the portion of a topology that is affected by a failure, support for elastic scaling based on the ability to acquire (and release) resources as needed as well as the ability to alter topology and operator properties on running applications. Apex has been developed since 2012 and became ASF top level project earlier this year, following 8 months of incubation. Apex early on brought the combination of high throughput, low latency and fault tolerance with strong processing guarantees to the stream data processing space and gained maturity through important production use cases at several organizations. See the powered by page and resources on the project web site for more information. The Apex engine is supplemented by Malhar, the library of pre-built operators, including adapters that integrate with many existing technologies as sources and destinations, like message buses, databases, files or social media feeds. An easy way to get started with Apex is to pick one of the examples as starting point. They cover many common and recurring tasks, such as data consumption from different sources, output to various sinks, partitioning and fault tolerance. Apex Malhar and Core (the engine) are separate repositories and releases. We expect more frequent releases of Malhar to roll out new connectors and other operators based on a stable engine API. This release 3.5.0 works on existing Apex Core 3.4.0. Users only need to upgrade the Maven dependency in their project. The source release can be found at: http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.lua/apex/apache-apex-malhar-3.5.0/ or visit: http://apex.apache.org/downloads.html We welcome your help and feedback.

This is a general call-to-arms for everyone who uses log4net as their logging solution. If log4net is the logging framework that you are using and would like to keep using in the future it is time now to get involved. The project needs a larger ... [More] developing community to move on! We really need more people who want to shape the future of log4net at the Apache Software Foundation. In all the time since log4net has been started by Nicko Cadell more than ten years ago, there have never been more than two or three people regularly contributing to it. As is normal in open source projects people have come and gone when their interests or just the amount of time they could invest have changed. At the moment Dominik Psenner and Stefan Bodewig are the only people semi-actively working on log4net and neither of them is able to devote as much time to the project as they'd like to and as would be required. Realistically log4net is maintenance mode where development of new features is not going to happen. This has repeatedly made log4net lag behind recent developments in the .NET world. It took a long time to get a version out that properly worked with .NET 4.0 in 2011 and adaptions to .NET 4.5 also took much longer than many users would have wished. We are seeing it again with .NET Core right now. In addition there are many unresolved issues in log4net's JIRA. Despite this there are more than 2500 downloads of the logging framework every day from nuget. We are asking you, the log4net community, to get your hands dirty. Right now we are in the process of creating a log4net release that works for .NET Core. It is a very targeted effort and it is very unlikely Dominik and Stefan will be able to contribute more in the future than we did during the past months. If you are willing to help, please join log4net's dev mailing list and raise your hand. Look through log4net's issue tracker and pick things you'd like to work on. If you don't know where to start, please ask, Dominik and Stefan will be there to help. If there is anything holding you back from contributing, let's discuss it and get it out of the way. Nothing is carved into stone, neither what the future of log4net holds nor how we make it happen.

Apache OFBiz News August 2016 Welcome to our regular monthly round-up of OFBiz news. This month we have news about how statistics show that OFBiz is a typical ASF project, we begin marketing our new OFBiz logo, a new notifications mailing list is ... [More] setup and our OFBiz Service Providers page gets a clean up. OFBiz - A Typical ASF Project Recently some ASF analytics have been made available using Snoot. One of the most recent factoids that came out this month was about OFBiz. Did you know that OFBiz mimics the focus of all the ASF projects? Yes it it true! Just take a look at the Snoot OFBiz Factoid and you will see that we spend time equally on all of the following: Working on Bug Fixes and Improvements Discussing Developments Interacting with Our Users Committing Code Which goes to show that OFBiz is a truly balanced project! Marketing our New Logo In our last update, we talked about the new OFBiz logo selected by the community. Various versions and formats of the logo have been uploaded to the wiki including a completely white version for use on dark backgrounds. The main logo file is in SVG format which allows it to be resized easily without any loss of quality. You can find all the logo files displayed at the following gallery link: OFBiz Logo Gallery The logos are sorted by date with the newest first. Also remember that some stickers with the new OFBiz logo have been printed, so if you are going to ApacheCon in Seville then please come along to the ASF booth and pick up some stickers! New Notifications Mailing List OFBiz has had so much going on lately (e.g. re-factoring, Gradle, bug fixes etc.) that all the automatic JIRA notifications were filling up our development mailing list. The large volume of messages was making it difficult to follow general discussion threads. To help solve the problem, a new Notifications mailing list has been created and all the automatic JIRA messages have been re-routed to it. This will leave our development mailing clear so that discussion threads can be followed more easily. If you want to follow the JIRA notification messages then you will need to subscribe to the new list at notifications@ofbiz.apache.org. Service Providers A review was done this month to tidy up our OFBiz Service Providers page. Over the years this page had become out of date and contained information that wasn't necessary. The page has now had a complete cleanup. If you want to be added as a OFBiz Service Provider then details of how to do this are also included on the Service Providers page.

It's traditional. We wait for the last minute to get our talk proposals in for conferences. Well, the last minute has arrived. The CFP for ApacheCon Seville closes on September 9th, which is less than 2 weeks away. It's time to get your talks ... [More] in, so that we can make this the best ApacheCon yet. It's also time to discuss with your developer and user community whether there's a track of talks that you might want to propose, so that you have more complete coverage of your project than a talk or two. For Apache Big Data, the relevant URLs are: Event details: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-europe CFP: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-europe/program/cfp For ApacheCon Europe, the relevant URLs are: Event details: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe CFP: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe/program/cfp This year, we'll be reviewing papers "blind" - that is, looking at the abstracts without knowing who the speaker is. This has been shown to eliminate the "me and my buddies" nature of many tech conferences, producing more diversity, and more new speakers. So make sure your abstracts clearly explain what you'll be talking about. For further updated about ApacheCon, follow us on Twitter, @ApacheCon, or drop by our IRC channel, #apachecon on the Freenode IRC network. [Less]

By default, inactive JSPWiki sessions are logged out after 30 minutes – quite often too short. The value can be adjusted by adding the following entry to the web.xml file (where the "session-timeout" value is in minutes): 60 This sets ... [More] inactive sessions to be logged out after one hour. Alternatively, a session timeout value can be configured in the application server. For example, on Payara Server, go to "server-config → Web Container", and under the "Session Properties" tab set the session timeout value in seconds (click to enlarge): Tip: You can change the "Session Timeout" message shown by JSPWiki when the timeout occurs – just create the SessionExpired page. It's probably a good idea to also add an [{ALLOW edit Admin}] ACL entry to the page. [Less]

Mature, easy-to-deploy Open Source Cloud computing software meets the demands of the world's largest Cloud providers Forest Hill, MD —22 August 2016— The Apache CloudStack project announced today the immediate availability of Apache ... [More] CloudStack v4.9, the latest version of the turnkey Open Source Cloud computing software platform used for creating private, public, and hybrid Cloud environments. Apache CloudStack Clouds enable billions of dollars worth of business transactions annually across their Clouds. Its maturity, stability and ease of deployment has led it to become the Open Source platform of choice for many service providers offering on-demand, elastic public Cloud computing services. CloudStack is also leveraged by many enterprises to provide private or hybrid Clouds for use by their employees. CloudStack includes an intuitive user interface and rich APIs for managing the compute, networking, software, and storage infrastructure resources. It supports a broad range of integration points for both traditional and Cloud-native workloads. "We're delighted to be releasing Apache CloudStack 4.9," said Will Stevens, Vice President of Apache CloudStack.
