Tapestry 5.3 for memory-efficient, high performance web applications
After more than a year in development and with more than 270 bug fixes and changes, version 5.3 of the Apache Tapestry Java web framework has been announced by the developers. The team says that, compared to the previous version, data throughput has been improved by up to 40 per cent for very large web sites, and memory consumption reduced by 30 per cent. Tapestry 5.3 also includes new components and functions.
While updating from version 5.2 to Tapestry 5.3 is possible, the developers point out that several obsolete classes and methods have been removed – and that existing applications should, therefore, be checked and, if necessary, modified before the new version is installed. The framework is primarily available via Maven, but the source code can also be obtained from the archive and is published under the Apache Licence 2.0.
