Devoxx - Day 4

The last full conference day of the Devoxx was again packed full with very interesting talks of various kind. It started with a keynote about the roadmap of JEE 7. Summarizing we can expect some smooth refinements of the platform (exept maybe the support for virtualization out of the box). Here are our impression on the talks of Thursday. Please expect our summary blog post on monday since we are all now in rush to get out things done and to catch train, plain etc. We hope, you enjoyed the blog flood so far ;-)

Die Datenbank-Plugins check_oracle_health, check_mysql_health, check_mssql_health und check_db2_health unterstützen auf vielfachen Wunsch auch den Parameter --extra-opts. Damit ist es jetzt möglich, z.B. Login-Daten von den Kommandozeilenparametern in Konfigurationsdateien zu verlagern. Neben Environmentvariablen gibt es somit eine weitere Alternative, Passwörter aus der Prozessliste zu entfernen und dadurch vor neugierigen Blicken zu schützen.
