OCEE version 2.1.1 / 1.0.17

October 12, 2009

This OCEE release is an important update that fixes a number of potential issues and introduces some new features and additions to OCEE version 2 for OpenCms 7.0 / 7.5.

The most important features in OCEE 2 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 features are exclusively available in OCEE version 2 for OpenCms 7.0 / 7.5. The 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 2.1.1 for OpenCms 7.0 and 7.5

OCEE 1.0.17 for OpenCms 6

Version 2.1.1 and 1.0.17 feature the following improvements:

  • The OCEE Accelerator is now caching access to non-existent resources to better withstand DOS attacks.
  • The OCEE Accelerator now provides a statistic report for cluster servers.
  • Improved cluster communication and logging in the OCEE Cluster Manager.
  • Fixed some issues in the OCEE Cluster Manager while rebuilding search indexes.
  • Fixed issue in the OCEE Cluster Manager with the "Set Workplace Server" function breaking the cluster connection.
  • Improved logging for transaction commits in the OCEE Transaction Manager.

Version 2.1.1 also features the following improvements, in addition to the above mentioned:

  • Fixed an issue in the LDAP Connector where synchronizing groups of Sub-OUs was not working correctly.
  • Fixed an issue in the LDAP Connector with synchronizing group information when the group is only existing in LDAP.
  • Fixed an issue in the LDAP Connector with loosing group-role mappings when the group does not yet exist in OpenCms, but only in LDAP.
  • The OCEE Cluster Manager now has a function to rebuild single search indexes on a cluster server.
  • The OCEE Replicator features a new scheduled job for automatic user synchronization.
  • If replication of files fails with the OCEE Replicator, these files are now preserved on the replication list in manual mode.
  • Improved logging in the OCEE Replicator in case of configuration errors.
  • Extended the functionality of the OCEE VFS Doctor broken structure plugin.
