This Week in OpenNMS: GWT Goes to 11
by Benjamin Reed: December 21, 2010
It’s time for This Week in OpenNMS. In the last few weeks we worked on reporting, IPv6, system feedback, JICMP, and surveillance views.
- 1.8: Current Release is 1.8.7 (Chuck-will’s-widow)
1.8.7 is the current stable release, tagged 8 December 2010. For a complete list of changes and updates, see the “New and Noteworthy” page on the OpenNMS wiki. As always, it is recommended that you back up your database before upgrading.
- Donald, Jonathan, and Ronny did more work on reports, including support for parameters in the UI.
- Donald and Ben updated the GWT code to be twice as fast, using a complicated development technique called, “updating the GWT dependencies from 2.0 to 2.1.”
- Seth did a bunch more work on IPv6, and is approaching a point where we can attempt some integration-level tests.
- Ben wrapped up adding a web UI for the system report tool, as well as the ability to open OpenNMS support tickets from the UI.
- Matt has been working on rewriting JICMP to use JNA, which will get rid of a lot of platform-specific issues doing ICMP (especially Windows).
- Matt completely rewrote the queries used in surveillance views, resulting in massive performance improvements with large datasets.

Until Next Week…
As always, if there’s anything you’d like me to talk about in a future TWiO, or you just have a comment or criticism that you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to say hi.
