WebORB for Java 4.1 is released

I am very pleased to announce that WebORB for Java 4.1 has been released and is available for download. The release is packed with some very cool features including:

  • Google App Engine integration – WebORB for Java can be deployed as a part of your web application into GAE. The feature includes all of the remoting capabilities for all supported client types (Flex, Flash, Silverlight, JavaScript, native Java and .NET). You can also use the management console for the instances of WebORB running in the Google cloud. Additionally, we introduced new WebORB for the Cloud pricing specifically for the cloud-based deployments.
  • Android integration (native Java and AIR) – The integration between AIR (on Android) and WebORB for Java is fairly straight-forward and has been available ever since Adobe created the AIR package for Android. However, starting with the version 4.1, we added support and APIs for the native Java Android apps. Java apps running on Android can benefit from the remoting and messaging capabilities of WebORB. This includes remote method invocation from Android to all supported service types: POJOs, Spring beans, EJBs, Hibernate models, SOAP Web Services and Grails controllers. The messaging support provides the publish/subscribe API and integration with the WebORB Messaging server. The functionality enables cross-device messaging (homogeneous and heterogeneous OSs), server to client data push, integration with MQ and JMS systems.
  • Windows Phone 7 integration – We are very excited to introduce support for WP7. Currently the supported feature set includes remote method invocation, but we are adding support for data messaging (which includes publish/subscribe, data push, remote shared objects and streaming). WebORB for Java 4.1 also includes a very powerful code generator which can create a C# remoting library as well as a complete WP7 Visual Studio project with sample UI. I should note that WebORB is the only integration server on the market enabling WP7 to Java connectivity.
  • Improved Silverlight support – We have made significant improvements in the Silverlight code generator and the SL to Java runtime. The new code generator creates a complete client class library with complex types, enums, bindable model and a proxy class for the remote Java service. Additionally, it creates Visual Studio and MonoDevelop projects with sample user interface demonstrating the usage of the client class library.
  • Grails integration – WebORB distribution now includes a Grails plugin which brings all of the WebORB functionality for Grails applications. Supported features include client-server remoting for all supported client types Flex, Flash, Silverlight, JavaScript, native Java and .NET), data management, messaging and media streaming.

As with any release, there are various bug fixes and improvements. We invite you to download a copy and give it a try. The Development Mode and the WebORB Community Edition are available free of charge.

    Is there an example Grails project I can play with? I am having trouble trying to reproduce the same as the videos on Youtube show.

    When I install the plugin, it installs fine, but when I try running my simple test app, it does not run anymore. I get a lot of messages saying that Weborb messaging services is not configure correctly. If I click on the link to access my app, it tells me that it is not found. Do I need to run anything other than Grails? Any help is appreciated.
