Hello World!

Amlen is still very new but we do now have the very first experimental build available for the very brave to try:
Edit: Link removed – there are newer better builds.

There are a lot of caveats, and we are not ready for widespread use yet:

  • It will only work on RHEL/CentOS 7 (Amlen’s predecessor used to ship various libraries like ICU so the same build worked on CentOS7, Fedora, CentOS 8). At the moment Amlen is configured to use OS libraries instead of bundling them which means a separate build for RHEL8 and Fedora (and other distros we’ve previously never worked on).
  • It doesn’t include the IBM Java JRE so the WebUI doesn’t work yet – you can use an existing Message Gateway WebUI to control the server (WebUI rpm is in the latest Message Gateway ifix: https://ibm.biz/messagegateway_fixes )
  • There isn’t a lot of “Getting Started Material” – though we do have an early cut of the docs: https://www.eclipse.org/amlen/docs/welcome.html (Watch this space for more!)
  • We’ve made some changes to make it easier to build outside IBM and I need to update the build instructions to clarify this.

We’ll be working to address all those bullet points – watch this space!
