OCEE version 2.1.0 / 1.0.16

August 29, 2008

This OCEE release is a major update that introduces a number of new features to OCEE version 2  for OpenCms 7.0 / 7.5. Moreover, a number of issues of the previous version have been fixed.

The most important new features in OCEE 2 for OpenCms 7.0 / 7.5 are:

  • Support for multi-staging scenarios with the OCEE Replicator: You can configure a "development" server that first pushes all generated content to a "staging" server e.g. for approval, and then afterwards to the "delivery" server. This is freely configurable, and there is no limit on the number of stages.
  • Centralized configuration of servers with the OCEE Cluster: You can now edit the scheduled jobs, search index configuration and module parameters for all individual servers in the cluster from a common GUI in the workplace server.
  • Support for OpenCms OUs in the LDAP Connector: It is now possible to connect each OpenCms OU with an individual path in the LDAP Server.
  • Improved performance with the OCEE Accelerator: A much improved cache policy in the Accelerator now selectively flushes only certain cached items after a publish instead of just flushing everything.

Please note that these new features are exclusively available in OCEE version 2 for OpenCms 7.0 / 7.5. The new release of OCEE version 1 for OpenCms 6 only contains some minor improvements and bug-fixes.

We recommend all OCEE users to upgrade their OpenCms installation to this version.

The release has the following version numbers:

OCEE 2.1.0 for OpenCms 7.0 and 7.5

OCEE 1.0.16 for OpenCms 6

Version 1.0.16 features the following improvements:

  • New feature added to the OCEE LDAP Module allowing to edit a principal without having to pass through the list with all principals, useful for slow systems with lots of principals.
  • An issue has been fixed in the OCEE Cluster Module checking server names and MAC addresses during startup, to prevent inconsistencies.
  • An issue has been fixed in the OCEE Replication Module when replicating membership information.
  • An issue has been fixed in the OCEE Replication Module with resource replication order.

Version 2.1.0 features the following improvements, in addition to the above mentioned:

  • The OCEE Replication Module now allows multi-staging scenarios, for example where content is pushed from Server A to B to C.
  • The OCEE Replication Module now allows bi-directional synchronization of user data between servers.
  • The OCEE LDAP Module now supports OpenCms organisational units (OUs), each OpenCms OU may have their own  user  / group path in the LDAP server.
  • The OCEE LDAP Module now allows to directly search principals in the LDAP Server in the 'Synchronization' views (for OpenCms > 7.0.4).
  • The OCEE Accelerator now features improved cache handling after resouces have been published, leading to great performance gains.
  • The OCEE Accelerator now features an improved statistics dialog that shows memory usage and cache content.
  • The OCEE Cluster Module now allows to edit the configuration of all servers in the cluster from a common GUI.
  • The OCEE Cluster Module is now also forwarding flex and image cache events.
  • An issue has been fixed in the OCEE Replication Module with organizational unit operations.
  • An issue has been fixed in the OCEE Replication Module with duplicated primary key in the CMS_PUBLISH_HISTORY table.
  • An issue has been fixed in the OCEE Replication Module with server names, MAC addresses, database pools, loop and chain validation during startup.
  • Optimizations have been made in the GUI of the OCEE LDAP Module, minimizing database and LDAP accesses.
  • An issue has been fixed in the OCEE Accelerator when requesting a file with trailing slash (for OpenCms > 7.0.4).

Please note that it is required to use the right OCEE version for your OpenCms version, since Alkacon OCEE for OpenCms 6 and 7.0 / 7.5 are not binary compatible.
