jTDS configurable OSGi Component 1.0.0 release

We are proud to announce that the first release of jTDS OSGi component is released.

This bundle contains a configurable component that can instantiate a JtdsDataSource and register it as an OSGi service with the following types:

All attributes that are defined by jTDS can be configured in a type-safe way. The list of configuration options are available at http://jtds.sourceforge.net/faq.html#urlFormat.

Although usage of DataSourceFactory is popular in the OSGi world, we decided to discontinue its support. The reason is simply that developers and sys-admins can work more effectively with components that have the exact type-safe configuration possibilities the JDBC driver offers.

Balazs Zsoldos is the co-founder of Everit. He is the leader of the development of Everit OpenSource Components. Developing Java based solutions is not only his job but also his passion. He believes in simplicity. That is why he decided to design and build as many simple, but useful goal-oriented modules as he can. As the base of the stack, he chose OSGi. Balazs does not believe in monoholitic frameworks, therefore all of the solutions that was designed by him can be used separately. In the beginning of his career, Balazs was a big fan of JEE and Spring. After a while, he changed his mind and started to try replacing everything with non-magical solutions that do not contain interceptors, weaving, etc.
