RHQ 4.9

RHQ 4.0 CR

This is the release candidate (=CR) of the upcoming RHQ 4.0 release. It is meant for interested parties to have a look at the new GUI, to see the GWT technology in action, and to test so that we can get feedback before the final release.

Please note
  • If you previously used an earlier RHQ 4.0 developer preview release, you must clear your browser's cache prior to using the RHQ 4.0 CR GUI! For example, in Firefox, press Ctrl-Shift-Del and then choose to clear everything from the cache.

  • While this is a CR release, it is labeled as -SNAPSHOT and will unzip into a folder named -SNAPSHOT.

  • You can not auto-upgrade an agent from the previous beta1 release to this CR.

  • It may be possible to upgrade from this CR to the final release, but you must not count on it.

New Features (since RHQ 3.0)

  • new SmartGWT-based GUI

    • 100% AJAX Web 2.0

    • internationalized (CR only includes English localized messages)

    • multiple customized dashboards can be saved

    • enhanced scheduling for operations, including support for cron expressions

    • "message center" provides a history of GUI messages from the current session

    • configuration editor now supports editing lists of simple properties

  • support for Postgres 9.0

  • support for deleting agent plugins

  • support for executing an RHQ CLI script when an alert fires (for more info, see this blog)

  • improved authorization for content repositories - public/private repos, repo owners, and MANAGE_REPOSITORIES privileges

Known Issues

  • User documentation on the RHQ wiki has not been updated yet - it still documents RHQ 3.0.

  • Some error messages will be masked and instead print "InvocationTargetException: please see server log for more details", but the server log may not necessarily provide more details.

  • The installer shows some non-replaced {} properties.

  • Some properties are editable when viewing a configuration in read-only mode.

  • Clicking the Reset button in the user or role edit view results in an error.

For a list of issues that still exist in the very latest RHQ 4.0 code, see Bugzilla.
