9th July 2003: Kilim 2 Tutorial is released

Here comes finally the complete tutorial (which can be downloaded independently from the Kilim 2.0 source) presenting the framework's new features in a simple publish and subscribe banking example !

5th June 2003: Kilim 2.0.25 is released

Kilim 2.0 is a complete rewrite of Kilim 1.0, allowing more reuse in the configuration files (extension mechanism) and more dynamicity (reconfiguration via JMX). It comes with a complete tutorial (which can be downloaded independently from the Kilim 2.0 source) presenting the framework's new features in a simple publish and subscribe banking example.

Kilim 1.0 will still be maintained, and occasionally versioned, as existing Kilim projects won't probably make the needed refactoring to take advantage of Kilim 2.0's new features.

30th September 2002: Kilim 1.1.3 is released

A new Kilim release has been made today. This is a maintenance release mainly needed for bug fixes. In particular, the following bugs have been fixed:

  • Assemblages that use a factory alternative that doesn't require parameter may not have a MY_CONFIGURATION in the KCF.
  • Multi-dimensional arrays are better supported.

16th September 2002: new mailing lists

Two new mailing lists have been created for your perusal:

While the former is public, the latter is restricted to team members.

Please feel free to use them!

11th September 2002: new documentation available

A newer version of the Getting started guide is now online. It now introduces a number of new Kilim constructs available in KCFs since Kilim 1.1. It is a recommended read.

8th August 2002: Kilim 1.1.1 is released

Corresponding to the move to Sourceforge, a new Kilim has been tagged on CVS: Kilim 1.1.1, tag Kilim_1_1_1. It is in practice very little different from Kilim 1.1 (mainly, the XML2Kernel tool, used to create bootstrap kernels, is now called Kcf2Java). Enjoy.

8th August 2002: Kilim website launched

Kilim now has its own website (independant from Jonathan's).

6th August 2002: Kilim moved to Sourceforge

The Kilim configuration framework has now found a new home on the debian-sf system at Objectweb: All CVS access should be done from there.

25th July 2002: Kheops renamed to Kilim

For intellectual property reasons, the Kheops configuration framework has been renamed to Kilim.

18th July 2002: Kheops 1.1 is released

We of the Kheops team are proud to release Kheops 1.1. This release brings significant improvements over Kheops 1.0 since it has been enriched with a number of features from Kelua's commercial Kawana tools. Among these new features can be mentioned the following:

  • Implicit factories and factory aspects: it is now not necessary to write specific factories for manipulating components in Kheops. Indeed, any constructor or even any non-void method can be used to instanciate new Kheops components
  • Sequences allow easy creation of collections of components
  • Setters allow initialization via any setter-type method (only one parameter, returns void) instead of being limited to constructors. This is a very useful feature to avoid the construction circularities that plagued previous versions of Kheops.

See the Kheops download page to download source or binary packages, or simply grab the latest source version from CVS. The revision history is also to be found on the download page.

24th June 2002: Kheops 1.0 is born

The Jonathan team is happy to let you know of the birth of Kheops. Formerly known as the Jonathan Configuration Framework, Kheops is now a separate product which can be used to configure applications with great flexibility.
