Print this page

New features

Here's what's new in VSA 1.1.0:

Installation as an Eclipse plugin for Eclipse versions 3.6 and 3.7 (as well as the Rich Client Platform distribution supported previously).

Can deploy services to a remote SLEE.

Much enhanced FSM diagram look-and-feel.

Many other improvements and bug fixes (see below).

VSA 1.1.0 is backward-compatible with previous VSA releases — old projects will be automatically upgraded when they are opened.

The VSA Examples are now available from the OpenCloud Developer Portal (instead of being packaged with VSA).

Improvements and bug fixes

The VSA 1.1.0 also includes fixes to the following issues (numbers and descriptions from the OpenCloud JIRA ticketing system):
