NextGen Connect 3.7.0 includes dozens of new features, improvements, and bug fixes!

Some key features and benefits of the new release include:

  • Java 11 Support — Java 11 is the newest "major" release of Java, and with it comes lots of great features like TLS 1.3 support. It's also the latest LTS release for Oracle support customers. Java 8 is not yet EOL so it can still definitely be used.

  • OpenJDK Support — No need to be worried about Oracle's recent license changes. With 3.7, Connect now supports both the official Oracle JDK, as well as OpenJDK distributions like the Oracle OpenJDK JDK, Azul Zulu, AdoptOpenJDK, and others! So when public security updates cease for Oracle JDK 8, you won't be forced to purchase Oracle support. You can choose whatever Java distribution you want.

  • Database Connection Pool Options — The database connections Connect uses can now be separated into read/write and read-only pools, which means you can leverage read-replica database scaling for running Connect in a cluster.

  • Advanced Clustering: Guaranteed Message Order — Our Advanced Clustering extension is great for horizontally scaling your Connect servers, and paired with a load balancer you can greatly improve throughput by allowing channels to run on multiple servers simultaneously. However in some cases you want messages for a particular channel to process in order. This is now possible in 3.7, and can be enabled on a per-channel and per-destination-queue basis!

  • User Authorization: Channel Tags / Groups — The role/privilege options for our User Authorization extension have been expanded in 3.7! With this you can create more fine-tuned roles. For example you can decide that a particular user should only be able to View/Manage channels that have a certain tag, or that belong to a certain group.

  • And More!
