FusionReactor ends support for Java 1.6

FusionReactor will be dropping support for Java 1.6 with FusionReactor 8.3.0. This release is currently scheduled for the end of this year / early 2020.

Fusionreactor 8.2.x releases will be the last micro releases to support Java 1.6.

FusionReactor customers have been moving off Java 1.6 for some time and only 0.3% of FusionReactor 8 users are still using Java 1.6.

Oracle ended its “Extended Support” on December 2018.

IBM ended its support of Java 1.6 with its “End of Service” on September 2018.

Screencast Intro to FusionReactor Cloud & Docker Swarm Demo – Brad Wood

In this video Brad Wood of Ortus Solutions introduces you to FusionReactor Cloud and Docker Swarm

“We’ve made a new screencast that shows an introduction to FusionReactor Cloud, a new way to monitor any number of servers in a consolidated interface that can scale up and down with your infrastructure. Not only do new servers automatically register and deregister themselves with the Cloud dashboard, but it supports a pay-for-what-you-use model that prevents you from locking into a specific number of licenses.

This is a great fit for deployments like Docker Swarm where you can scale your service up and down from day to day. In this demo, I’ll show you how to add FusionReactor cloud easily into any CommandBox-based server and show how to deploy it to a Docker Swarm on our Ortus Docker image and then play around with it.” Brad Wood, Ortus Solutions (Follow him on Twitter)
