Java Secure Sockets Extension support

EAServer 4.1.1 allows you to use Sun’s Java Secure Sockets Extension (JSSE) classes provide support for SSL connections. JSSE provides an alternative to the built-in SSL implementations when secure connections are needed from an applet running in a Web browser. To support JSSE, new properties have been added to the Java client runtime classes. For information on using JSSE in Java clients, see Chapter 5, “Using SSL in Java Clients,” in the EAServer Security Programming and Administration Guide.

Named instance pools

EAServer pools and reuses component instances to avoid the overhead of creating and destroying instances. EAServer 4.1.1 provides named instance pools to provide more administrative control over how components are pooled. This feature allows you to control the number of component instances that EAServer creates for a set of components. Instance pools provide a mechanism to control the memory used to pool component instances. For example, you can provide a larger instance pool to heavily used components. For more information, see “Named instance pools” in Chapter 3, “Component Tuning,” in the EAServer Performance and Tuning Guide.
