Release Notes: This is the first production release. A path traversal security problem in the HTTP server has been fixed. SAXGenerator now properly generates prefixMapping events.
Release Notes: After releasing beta 3, we found out that there were some stability issues with the latest developer releases of Xalan, whose XPath engine we use for our query resolver. Some users were experiencing query failures with certain data sets. We've therefore had to roll back to a previous version of Xalan (2.0.1).
Release Notes: Beta 3 is the final beta for dbXML, providing improved concurrency, better integration with Tomcat, the removal of the naming service, and several bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release improves the stability and scalability of the server. JacORB has been replaced with OpenORB, the XML:DB API has once again been brought in to conformance with the latest draft, several DOM Level 3 Core methods have been added, and several bugs within the XUpdate system have been fixed.
Release Notes: The dbXML Core has reached Beta status. The server is fully functional, and the number of bugs should be minimal at this point. XPath Namespace support added. XML:DB API up to date. New testing framework. Many other minor bug fixes were made.
Release Notes: A lot of the problems that were being reporting regarding ORB versioning and VM configuration have been resolved. The XUpdateQueryService is now available via the XML:DB Collection class. DOM is no longer broken in respect to DocumentFragments. Also, a bug in reporting node modification status up the tree has been fixed. This was causing XUpdate queries to break in some cases. The Exception system has been further refined.
Release Notes: dbXML is now feature complete and can be considered to be Alpha quality. It is now based on an Apache style license and includes support for the XML:DB XUpdate specification. Wire Compression is now supported by the CORBA APIs. NodeIndexer has split into NameIndexer and ValueIndexer. Better Exception categorization. Application has been renamed to Database. An Address Book example is included, built on Tomcat. The CORBA ORB used by the server is now easily pluggable. SAX support has been added to the XML:DB API implementation. The HTTP server port has been changed to 4080 to avoid conflicts on the commonly used 8080 port. More documentation.
Release Notes: Quite a bit of progress in building out the server and contributing to its overall stability, some major enhancements to the indexing and query systems, and documentation updates and additions.
Release Notes: Some major changes to dbXML between version 0.4 and 0.5 have been made that will affect the type of applications that can be developed solely with dbXML. dbXML has been broken into three separate projects. The entire Filing, Indexing, and Query systems have been completely rearchitected and rewritten pretty much from scratch. A new Filer named BTreeFiler is available in addition to HashFiler. The Application class now extends Collection. There have been a few changes to the Collection class. There is now only one type of XMLObject. The dbXML Client API has been replaced by an XML:DB Core Level 1 implementation. The Command-Line Tools have been broken into two separate tools: dbxmladmin for administrative purposes, and dbxml for user commands. JacORB is now used for CORBA services. JAXP support for creating and parsing dbXML compressed DOM Documents is now available.
Release Notes: Improvements in general system stability and performance, improved indexing, XPath, and DOM, Cocoon integration, XMLObject enhancements, nested collections, XMLSerializable database-bound classes, Symbol Tables, a Gopher service, and the beginnings of user management and access control.
