[ANN] Equinox 1.4 Released

This release is mainly to support Spring 1.2.1 and Hibernate 3.0.5. The default database is now PostgreSQL because of an issue with Hibernate 3 and HSQL. All of the frameworks used in Equinox, as well as its build/test system is explained in Spring Live. Detailed release notes are below:

- Added "" key to (for Spring) to display a friendly error for invalid dates.
- Changed to use PostgreSQL as the default database because of an issue with HSQL and Hibernate 3.0. Read more »
- Added "clear" target to build.xml for clearing out the database.
- Added MySQL JDBC Driver and for easy switching to MySQL.
- Changed UserWebTest (jWebUnit test) to get lastInsertedId from UI using HttpUnit rather than using UserManager (Richard Easterling).
- Changed spring-sandbox.jar to springmodules-validator-0.1.jar since Commons Validator support for Spring has moved to the Spring Modules project.
- Changed all Spring XML files to use new "value" and "ref" attributes.
- Dependent packages upgraded:

  • Cargo 0.5
  • Log4j 1.2.9
  • Hibernate 3.0.5
  • iBATIS 2.1.0
  • OJB 1.0.3
  • Spring 1.2.1

Download. For more information about installing the various options, see the README.txt file.


The basic Equinox download contains all the various web and persistence framework options in the "extras" folder. If you have issues replacing the web or persistence framework (or both), please enter an issue in JIRA and I'll build and upload a customized version for you.

Thanks vlod - should be fixed now. These demos are currently experiencing issues for a couple of reasons: 1) the server it's hosted on is extremely slow and 2) it's still using version 1.3 with HSQL. I need to find a new hosting provider (like I did for and upgrade to use PostgreSQL. Hopefully I'll get this done in the next couple of weeks.
