We’re sorry it took a bit longer than we had hoped, but we are glad to finally release TIBant™ 1.4.2. While there are a couple of new features and defect fixes, we really want to draw attention to the new
extract-properties macro, which converts existing configuration xml files to properties files that you can use with the
configure-ear. So, if one of the reasons you aren’t using TIBant is because it’s too hard to migrate your existing configuration, now you have one less excuse.
A big thank you goes out to John Menzies from Think Platinum, who implemented this feature. This is our first community-implemented feature, which we think is really exciting. We don’t want to ’own’ TIBant, we want it to be a tool used by and belonging to the community. If there’s a feature you think is missing or you think should work differently, then please join in or at the very least please let us know.
