At long last, the first pre-release version of MessAdmin 3 is now available.

While the main 3.0 feature (server-level monitoring) has not been activated yet, under-the-hood changes are there as long as minor enhancements over version 2.

Happy X-mas to all of you!

Teaser: MessAdmin for Tomcat

As a teaser of whats to come next... Presenting MessAdmin for Tomcat Manager: Session Administration without the fuss (of installing, that is).

Download our modified (from Tomcat 5.5.12) manager.war file and place it in $CATALINA_HOME/server/webapps/. Restart Tomcat and enjoy your new and improved Manager! :-)

While you wont need to modify any of your web applications for this to work, this package can only give basic statistics, and does not allow to send messages to remote users. All of this will be part of MessAdmin 3, currently under development. Stay tuned!... read more

Bug in JSTL 1.0 sessionDetail.jsp (with workaround)

A small bug has been found in MessAdmin_JSTL10/sessionDetail.jsp, preventing display. While this will be corrected in the next release, you can work around by using the no-JSTL version, or changing the page as follows:

in MessAdmin_JSTL10/sessionDetail.jsp, go to line 118 and replace
var="name"
with
varName="name"

The JSTL 1.1 version works fine.

Credits to Ajay Chaudhary for reporting the issue.
