Javilion plug-in 1.2.0

Post to Twitter

The current Javilion release 1.2.0 allows configuration via Preferences or Project properties. Now it is very easy to change the http port or to configure automatic reloads by file extension. With the old version, you had to change the .project file manually.

If you use the port parameter with Javeleon, no automatic reload is executed. The old Javilion plug-in sent a reload event after a java file was changed, but that was a bug. With the current version, you can configure, for which file extension you want to send a reload event.

The configuration is saved per project.

Project properties

Project properties

 
Open the project properties (right click on the project / Properties) and be sure that Javilion nature has been added to your project!

Otherwise it is not possible to change the configuration.

Preferences

Preferences

 
Open the preferences (Window / Preferences) and set the default values!

The default values are used when you Reset the settings in your project setup.

Have fun ;-)

Javeleon Eclipse Plugin

Post to Twitter

If you use Javeleon for JVx applications and your preferred IDE is Eclipse, check out our new Eclipse plugin. It is the inofficial Javeleon plugin for Eclipse. The name of the plugin is Javilion Plugin. It is available on SourceForge and it is released under Apache License 2.0.

The plugin has two helpful features:

  • Reload Javeleon manually

    Simply reload Javeleon whenever you want.

  • Automatic Reload after resource file update

    The current Javeleon version(s) does not reload when you change a resource file like .properties, .xml, ... If you enable the Javilion plugin in your Eclipse project, reload happens automatically.

If you want to use the plugin, use the following instructions, because we have not setup an updatesite right now!

  • Download the plugin
  • Copy the jar to the dropins or plugins directory of your Eclipse installation
  • Restart Eclipse
  • Add Javilion nature to your project: right mouse click on your project, Javilion/Add nature
  • Right click on your project to verify that Javilion is added:

    Javilion Plugin

    Popup menu

  • Configure your application run configuration and add the port property to your javaagent, e.g.:

    -javaagent:D:\javeleon.jar=nbjdk=default;profile=java;port=9999

    The port 9999 is the default setting. If you need another port, configure it in your .project file:

    <buildCommand>
        <name>com.sibvisions.eclipse.javilion.JavilionBuilder</name>
        <arguments>
            <dictionary>
                <key>port</key>
                <value>1234</value>
            </dictionary>
        </arguments>
    </buildCommand>

    It is a little bit tricky, because we don't have a configuration UI for the plugin right now.

If you use the plugin together with a Javeleon ReloadListener (-Djaveleon.reload.listener=app.MyListener), you feel the full power of Javeleon.

Alternatives to Oracle Forms

If you are interested in alternatives to Oracle Forms, come and talk with us. We speak about "Advantages of Forms and Java combined" at the AOUG Expert meeting on 25th Mai.

We show you step by step how you can create Java solutions as easy as with Oracle Forms. Or better, faster as with Oracle Forms.

It is an event, organized from the Austrian Oracle User Group. There are several talks about the main topic. The talks are in German.

VisionX 1.1.1 is released

Post to Twitter

We released VisionX 1.1.1 as little Thank you to our customers. Thanks for the great Feedback and for all the compliments!

The new release contains many improvements and solves some ugly problems.

The details

  • Application reload in Browsers

    It is not necessary to clear the Java or Browser cache. The application now reloads automatically.

  • Data export

    The simple export of records now creates valid CSV files. Simply open it with Excel or other Office suites.

  • Install the database without freeze

    VisionX had a problem with opened database connections, because the installation waits until all resources are freed. In the current release, VisionX closes all opened connections during installation. The database installation now runs smoothly.

  • Translation update

    We updated the English translation.

  • Tomcat Settings

    If you reused a Tomcat setting, the port is set to 80. Now the stored port is used.

  • User Management

    Now it is possible to customize the User Management screen.

  • Form screen validation

    If you close a form screen but not all required fields are filled, you get only one information dialog.

  • Default table sort

    If you sort a table with different columns and different sort orders, it is saved now.

  • Edit data table

    We found a potential freeze during screen update and changed the display of the data type.

  • Action editor

    A value change command does not create a new insert command anymore.

Have fun with this fantastic release.

JVx 1.1 beta1 is available

Post to Twitter

It is available from the project page.

What's different?

This beta release is an update release and contains not a lot of new features.

  • CSV Export uses client locale

    Before 1.1, we used a semicolon ";" as separator. Now we use a locale specific separator. This solves country specific data export problems.

  • Modal Internal Frames on MacOSX

    We solved the problem with resizable modal internal frames on MacOSX. Now the resizebox is always visible.

  • UITable readonly

    Now it is possible to set an UITable readonly independent of the IDataBook.

  • API changes

    We reverted the API change, made in JVx 1.0, because the implementation was not very clever. Now it is possible to extend the DBStorage and have full database independent support. In JVx 1.0 you had to extend the default DBStorage and the specific MySqlDBStorage and the specific PostgreSqlDBStorage.... was not very developer friendly. With JVx 1.1 you have the same features but without development overhead.

    Old:

    DBStorage dbs = getDBAccess().createStorage();
    dbs.open();

    New:

    DBStorage dbs = new DBStorage();
    dbs.setDBAccess(getDBAccess());
    dbs.open();
