Working with Blacktie

Following our previous wiki articles on building and deploying the Blacktie framework, we have now created an albeit brief guide to how to use our build tools to create Blacktie server and client executables.

We've also created another article aimed at those who are interested in getting started with developing the framework itself.

If you're interested you can check out our new articles on the wiki:
Developing Blacktie
Building Blacktie Servers and Clients

Hopefully these should be of help to you!

Blacktie Milestone 1 Binaries Uploaded

Greetings to our regular Blacktie viewers and welcome to those readers new to the blog!

Today marks the first binary release of the Blacktie project which can be downloaded from here...

We have also updated our Wiki with a new article describing what you can do once you have acquired a binary distribution from or built it yourself.

The article is intended to get you up and running with our provided examples and tell you how to install the required third party components.

Finally for those completionists out there, we have added a new tag into the repository, Blacktie_1_0_M1_CR2 which has the tweaks in the build system to add the third party shared libraries to the binary distribution.

Until next time,

Welcome to the JBoss Blacktie party

We are proud to announce the first milestone release of the JBoss Blacktie product. Blacktie allows the user to easily migrate their existing XATMI applications from any existing provider onto the open source JBoss application server with no re-writing of existing XATMI code.

This release marks the first opportunity that XATMI developers have been able to freely download an open source XATMI provider for use in any of their solutions.
