What’s in the WebSphere Liberty beta for January?

Logstash Collector and Bluemix Log Collector updates

Two changes have been made for users of logstashCollector-1.1 and bluemixLogCollector-1.1 features.

First, you can now take advantage of tags in our Kibana dashboards. The ability to configure the Liberty server to add tags to events was introduced in logstashCollector-1.1 and bluemixLogCollector-1.1 in the November/December 2016 beta. Tags will now be displayed in the Liberty Kibana dashboards, enabling you to filter your log records based on tag content.

Second, be aware that the field names parsed from log (and other) records have been modified. For logstashCollector-1.1 users the published Kibana 4 dashboards and Logstash template file have been updated. For bluemixLogCollector-1.1 users the Kibana 4 dashboards published during setup of the bluemixLog service have been updated.

What’s already in there?

The December 2016 beta included the transportSecurity-1.0 feature and a MongoDB Integration 2.0 feature update.

Take a look at the previous beta announcements for a full list of stuff added since the 16.0.0.2 release in June 2016:

  1. Remote EJB and workload management

    Hello, as per http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSAW57_liberty/com.ibm.websphere.wlp.nd.multiplatform.doc/ae/twlp_ejb_remote.html (Interoperability) the Liberty currently doesn’t provide any form of workload management / failover capabilities for remote EJB operations. Since this is quite an important feature that would prevent us from proceeding with the potential migration to WAS Liberty in many of our customers environments I’d like to ask:

    – Are there any plans to implement the workload management / failover capabilities for remote EJB operations at all?
    – If so, is it planned for some near future (like within a year or so)? I’m not asking for any exact dates as I know that’s something You can’t actually comment on much, just if it’s going to happen in the foreseeable future and not like in 5 years or so…

    Thanks.
