Tcat Server 6 R3 Release Notes

Tcat Server 6 R3 fixes several bugs, but also bundles the official release binaries of Tomcat version 6.0.26.

Support for Tomcat 7.0.0 BETA

  • The Tcat Server 6 R3 agent.war runs within the Tomcat 7.0.0 Beta release, meaning the Administration Console can provide diagnostics, deployment, management, and monitoring capabilities.

NOTE: The Administration Console does not currently run within Tomcat 7.0.0 Beta.

Windows Service Support

  • Tcat Server is now installed as a Windows Service by default on Windows operating systems

  • You may install, configure, and operate multiple Tcat Server Windows services independently

  • Remote restarts of Tcat Server Windows services are offered transparently through the Tcat Server console

IE Web Browser Support

  • Tested to work in Internet Explorer 7 and Internet Explorer 8

Usability Improvements

  • Improved support for Windows IE 7.x and higher versions

  • Deployment status now easily viewed (Successful, Reconciled, Unreconciled, etc.)

  • Deployments can be restored with one click using Deployment History tab

Installer Improvements

  • Tcat Server instances can be renamed on Windows and Linux

  • Multiple Tcat Servers on a single machine using installer

Installer Upgrade

  • Tcat Server 6.3 Installer upgrades smoothly from 6.2.1 and 6.2.0

  • Server Profiles including environment variables, can now be imported and exported, making it easier to deploy settings for Alfresco or JRebel environments onto multiple Tcat instances

  • Multicasting in the Tcat Server agent may now be disabled

  • Admin Shell component enables Groovy scripts to be executed on the server, enabling you to hook into deployment events. For instance, you could configure a load balancer to take one server out of rotation while it was being updated, and return to rotation as soon as the update was complete.
