This document describes what has changed in Ontopia between releases, both at a higher level, and in more detail.

  • Removed the PoolableSetFactoryIF, PoolableSetIF and SetPoolIF interfaces and their implementing classes.
  • Improved the closing of TopicMapSourceIF objects when closing a TopicMapRepositoryIF object fixing possible memory leaks and clustering issues.
  • Added missing implementations for persisting reference title and base address changes in an RDBMS environment
  • Added functionality to LTM parser that allows reification based on a prefixed PSI
