Ulteo Application System Beta 1 - the FOSSwire review

Filed under
Linux

Ulteo is an interesting concept. Rather than being just another Linux distribution, founder Gaël Duval (previously of Mandriva fame), wants to simplify the way you use your computer and your digital life. Apparently.

The way this is done is by combining an online service and a desktop client operating system. Instead of having all your information locally on your PC, much of it can be stored online and then synchronised, so you can access it at your PC, or anywhere you are on any device that can connnect to the internet.

Earlier this month, the project released Beta 1 of the Ulteo Application System - that’s the client bit. It’s based on Ubuntu and features a KDE-based desktop. I thought I would put the release through its paces and give my thoughts on how well this hybrid web-desktop model works and what the future for it might be.

Create modular server-side Java apps direct from mvn modules with diet4j instead of an app server

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros). If org.example.mydaemon is your top Maven project, all you do is specify it as the root module for your jsvc invocation, and diet4j figures out the dependencies when jsvc starts. An example systemd.service file is available.
