Refresh all DVM's sharing the same map dataset

In multi-LPAR environments, we will have a single DVM subsystem running across more than one LPAR. When maps are created in DVM, we would want all instances of DVM that are sharing the same map dataset to be refreshed.

Add latest version of the log4j API to the DVM distribution

The log4j that ships with DVM is not the latest version available online (at https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/download.html). We need the flexibility of using any log4j jar.

Converting ZCEE WOLA to ZCEE JVM

Currently the connection between zCEE and DVM is over WOLA. This setup requires a 1:1 zCEE server for each DVM subsystem that needs to expose web services. We would like to see an alternative interface added that would allow multiple DVMs to be se...
