ANNOUNCE a major feature improvement of libmsgque ...

What is LibMsgque

LibMsgque is an OS independent, Programming Language independent and
Hardware independent solution to link applications together to act like a
single application. Or with other words, LibMsgque is an Application-Server

Highlights of the current Release:

This release introduce a couple of highlights into the LibMsgque World
including the Python 3.01 support and a brand new Tcl/Java interface

As bonus an C/Tcl/Java/Python performance test was added using the
following conditions:

  1. same basic native library -> libmsgque (written in C)
  2. same user -> me
  3. same performance management tool
  4. same code workflow using the native language interface
        to link libmsgque with a language specific service
  5. testing the following aspects:
        a) application startup/shutdown performance
        b) synchronous and asynchronous transaction performance
        c) spawn, fork and thread process creation performance

  -> results:


Add Python 3.01 support
  This is the next step to provide an OS and programming language
  independent solution

New Tcl and Java Library binding
  Now Tcl, Java and Python using the same function namespace
  to improve the cross language code readability
