SailFin 1.0 Alpha is here !!




We are releasing SailFin 1.0 Alpha today !
Why Alpha and why now ?
They say that an open source project is in a perpetual beta. Agreed ! Sailfin crossed MS4 early this year in April, where most of the features that we expect to support in 1.0 was in. However there was a need to start testing the Application Server more thoroughly , so that users/developers could use it more reliably to prototype their applications and evaluate the capabilities of Sailfin. The last few months have been spent on testing and stabilizing Sailfin in a cluster setup and also fixing key issues across all modules . Hence this may be a good time to expose this tested binary to all the developers for evaluation and feedback.

What constitutes this Alpha release ?
This release has all the features that were there in the MS4. These features have been tested functionally and key issues have been fixed. In addition tests have been run on Sailfin in a multi-instance cluster setup for a 7 days in a row and issues uncovered were fixed.

In short, modules like
• Administration
• Deployment
Monitoring
SIP Network Manager
• SIP Container

are more robust and stable now. The focus on the SIP Network Manager has been on the TCP side.

JSR 289 was approved a month ago and we are working on making the SIP Servlet Container compliant with JSR289. Its still work in progress and the work is happening as I type !

Other features which are available but are of an Alpha quality are
High Availability ( SIP and HTTP Session Replication )
Converged Load Balancer
Application Router ( With a facility to deploy a custom Application Router)
OverLoadProtection for SIP Container

It would be good to have your feedback and / or issues on all these features and Sailfin in general. BTW, we have a new look for the download page as well !
