Cisco Unified Application Environment version 2.5 Beta II is available
for download.

This is pre-release software and should not be used in production

New and Changed Information for Cisco Unified Application Environment
for Release 2.5 Beta II:

*Easier upgrades with locked .Net assemblies
The version of the Cisco Unified Application Environment Framework Core
Assemblies (.NET assemblies) has been locked so that developers do not
have to rebuild their projects every time the Cisco Unified Application
Environment platform changes version.

*Streamlined production installation and initial setup
The verification of the Cisco Unified Application Environment service
user password in the production (non-SDK) installers has been
streamlined. In addition, the Cisco Unified Application Environment
Administration interface now walks the administrator through the basic
setup required for the Cisco Unified Application Server and the Cisco
Unified Media Engine.

*Transport Layer Security (TLS) for the Cisco Unified Application
Environment Management Service and Etch Bridge
The Cisco Unified Application Environment command-line tool and the
Cisco Unified Application Environment Administration now consume the
Management Service API using TLS. The Etch-based applications and
plugins now connect to the Etch Bridge using TLS. TLS encryption is
enabled by default, but authentication is not. Developers must add a TLS
parameter to connection URIs for applications and plugins to work

*KeepAlive support added for Etch Bridge
To rapidly detect connection failures, the Etch KeepAlive message filter
periodically checks the health of the client-server connection, and
resets it if it is not responsive. By default, KeepAlive messages are 15
seconds apart, and if four KeepAlive messages fail, the connection is
reset. The default delay and number of attempts can be configured.
Developers must add a KeepAlive filter to their connection URIs.

*MaxPacketSize support added for Etch Bridge
By default, Etch sets the MaxPacketSize at 16KB for applications and
plugins, and the Etch Bridge defaults to 100KB. The smaller of the two
is the default. To change the MaxPacketSize to 100KB, the developer must
add a MaxPacketSize parameter to their connection URIs.

*Management API procedures updated
File upload and download procedures within the Management API have been
updated into a uniform usage pattern.These procedures are used for
downloading logs, archives, MIBs, and statistical plot files as well as
uploading applications, plugins, and license files.

For more details about these changes, such as configuration options and
instructions for application and plugin developers, see the Cisco
Unified Application Environment 2.5.(1) Beta II details at the following
