VisualVM 1.3 has just been released and is now available for download at https://visualvm.dev.java.net! The most significant new features in this release include the incorporation of the Sampler plugin into the core tool, the ability to define custom profiling presets, and support for taking a heap dump of a remote JVM. The tool newly enables custom sorting of applications, recognizes the Clojure, Groovy, JRuby, Jython and Scala runtimes, and introduces monitoring remote hosts. Two new plugins have been provided with this release: the Tracer framework and probes plugin enable detailed application monitoring, and the Threads Inspector plugin displays stacks of the selected threads.

TeamDev is pleased to present the second Early Access release for OpenFaces 3.0 with JSF 2.0 support. This release features tighter integration with the JSF 2.0 infrastructure, which has resolved most of the problems that existed in the previous release. Here are the most notable fixes:
<ul>
					
<li>fixed Ajax functionality for DataTable, TreeTable, CompositeFilter and all other components;</li>
					
<li>fixed compatibility with the standard JSF 2.0 Ajax APIs (the  component, and jsf.ajax.request() JavaScript function);</li>
					
<li>made possible to attach client behavior tags, such as  to all OpenFaces input and command components</li>
				
</ul>

Besides, it is now easier to add OpenFaces to your application -- you just need to add OpenFaces jar with its dependencies to your application. No web.xml modification and resource filter registration is required anymore!

<td valign="top"><b>About: </b></td><td> Artifactory is an advanced and feature-rich Maven Repository manager.</td>

<td valign="top"><b>News: </b></td><td>
JFrog has announced the availability of a new version of the
                <a href="http://wiki.hudson-ci.org/display/HUDSON/Artifactory+Plugin">Hudson Artifactory Plugin</a> with new support for
                <a href="http://ant.apache.org/ivy/">Ivy/Ant builds</a>.


The Hudson Artifactory Plugin intercepts the build to capture information about published artifacts, resolved dependencies and the environment data associated with each build. This information is then attached to binaries published to the Artifactory repository manager which gives you:

                <ul>
					
<li>Traceability from artifacts to all builds they were part of, including links from any artifact in Artifactory to its related builds in Hudson and vice versa.</li>
					
<li>Full reproducible builds with complete environment data and dependencies information.</li>
					
<li>Build-oriented artifacts promotion and management, including the ability select dependencies from specific configurations/scopes when managing a build with its dependencies (some features require the Artifactory Pro Power Pack).</li>
					
<li>Efficient deployment at the end of a full build to avoid partial deployments when some modules of a multi-module build fail after some modules were already deployed.</li>
				
</ul>

The Ivy support in the Artifactory Plugin (released under the Apache2 license) integrates with Ivy builds running in Hudson using the excellent
                <a href="http://wiki.hudson-ci.org/display/HUDSON/Ivy+Plugin">Hudson Ivy Plugin</a>, with the kind help of Timothy Bingaman, the Ivy plugin author.



This completes the coverage of all leading build technologies by the Artifactory Plugin:
                <strong>Gradle</strong>,
                <strong>Maven</strong> and now
                <strong>Ivy/Ant</strong>.


Similar Ivy integration for
                <strong>TeamCity</strong> is coming up
