What a day!
Our final release of VisionX 2.2 is out and it's the best piece Software we've ever released.
We worked very hard during the last 5 months to reach our goals and to make it happen. The new version brings many new productivity features and contains many bugfixes. The focus was and is still on end-users. But in VisionX 2.2, we have many new features for Software developers and Oracle Forms users as well. It depends on your license if you see more or less options.
So what's new? First, VisionX is compatible to Java 8 and can handle Lambda expressions without problems. This isn't relevant for end-users but for all developers. VisionX 2.2 still runs with Java 7 but it's no problem to switch the Java version to 8.
VisionX 2.2 has our brand new JavaFX UI integrated. If you have Java8, it'll be possible to start your applications as JavaFX applications or to export JavaFX standalone applications.
The new release is based on JVx 2.3.
So let's talk about Features
- Java 8 support
VisionX reads Java 8 syntax and if your project was set to target version 1.8, VisionX will create action listeners with lambda syntax. VisionX got new global configuration options:<options>
It's also possible to configure single applications via Eclipse settings, for Java 8. The configuration will be read from VisionX automatically.

VisionX 2.2.403 includes our current vaadin UI and it's based on vaadin 7.5.0.
