VisionX 5.8.224 is out

We're happy to announce that VisionX 5.8.224 is out. It's a small bugfix release.

We found some problems with react UI and our mobile integration. Known bugs were fixed and we recommend an update!

As usual, VisionX 5.8.224 is available in the download area for our customers.
Have fun!

Delivery service demo application

We're happy to announce that a new demo application is available. It's more or less a delivery service.

The demo application is not a real delivery service application! It demonstrates how to create and integrate a custom UI based on our reactUI. It's a demo application for software developers.

The full source code and documentation is available here.

Delivery service (custom UI)

custom UI (delivery service)

Simply install the application via VisionX' Marketplace and open the "next generation" live preview.
The application already contains the custom UI.

VisionX is the only tool which offers such flexible customization of applications with state-of-the-art technology. Same customization is available for native mobile (flutter) apps.

JVx' Multi-factor-authentication documentation

The multi-factor-authentication support in JVx is not a brand-new feature but it was undocumented. If you're interested in MFA, simply read the documentation.

If you're also interested in custom REST services, read following article.

The JVx documentation doesn't explain every single feature of JVx, but it's better than you think!

VisionX 5.8 is out

What a great day!

We're happy to announce VisionX 5.8. It's a big update with bombastic features.
The exact version number is 5.8.180.

The version comes with the latest release build of our brand new react user interface and a brand new (native) mobile application. Our react UI is an additional UI and can be used as modern alternative to our good old vaadin UI, which is still part of VisionX. We'll continue our vaadin UI and keep it as long as possible, but cool features will be available for react UI. Our react UI looks modern and is easy to style with CSS. In VisionX, the live preview contains a new design mode. The design mode makes it possible to style the application live in the browser. It's an awesome feature, simply try it out!

The design mode is an experimental feature of VisionX 5.8.
We also build our react UI daily, automatically as pre-releases. This makes it easy for you, to update react UI in your VisionX or to build your custom react UI. As long as react UI is compatible with your VisionX version, you get the latest features without new VisionX release.

But not only the react UI is brand new, also our (native) mobile client is brand new. It's still based on flutter but got a complete redesign. The new app is super fast, and supports all layout features of VisionX. To be honest, it's awesome. And we have the same update strategy for the mobile app. As long as it is compatible with your VisionX installation, it can be updated independent of VisionX. VisionX 5.8 also contains a live preview for the mobile app, directly in your web browser. You won't need a real device for the preview, but it looks like the app on your mobile device! This is so cool.

What's new?

The version got some updates for the screen designer and we improved user experience. It also contains a lot of bug fixes. The main focus was on new react UI and new mobile application.

Some visual changes

  • Hidden menu group
    Simply move a work-screen to the hidden group and it will be invisible. There are also two new move buttons in the menu management. It's now possible to move a screen directly into another group.

    It's now possible to show the exact position of an element. It's also possible to change the position manually.

  • New elements



As usual, VisionX 5.8.180 is available in the download area for our customers.
Have fun!

VisionX 5.7 is out

We're so happy to announce VisionX 5.7.11. We worked hard to finish everything in-time and we did it!

It's a big update with many new features and a first face-lift. A detailed blog post will follow in the next days.

Here are some highlights:

  • Filter master/detail with detail fields

    It's now possible to search in a detail table and show all master records which contain found records.

  • EDB support

    If you want to use specific EDB features and not only standard PostgreSql DB, it's now possible.

  • Function/Procedure support for PostreSql DB

    Simply call a db function or procedure directly.

  • Hide screens

    The menu configuration now shows a special group for hidden screens. Simply move a screen to this group to hide a screen.

  • Next generation UI

    The next generation web UI is ready to use.

  • Additional doc and video buttons

    The window title got two new buttons...

  • Themes for standard web UI

    It's now possible to use different styles for the standard web UI, in the configuration screen.

  • Solution Store is now our Marketplace
  • Updated AddOns: Cloud, Profiles, Workflow, REST
  • ... many bugs fixed

Because of important updates of Cloud AddOn, old VisionX installations with old Cloud AddOn won't work without update to VisionX 5.7.11 and new Cloud AddOn. So, if you use Cloud AddOn, update to VisionX 5.7.11.

As usual, VisionX 5.7.11 is available in the download area for our customers.
Have fun!

JVx 2.8.5 - Statistics

JVx 2.8.5 is out and we have some Source Code statistics for you!

Our last statistics were determined for JVx 2.2. The source code grew by 50.012 lines, since 2.2. We now have 178.896 (JVx library, Swing UI, tests) compared to 128.884 in JVx 2.2. Still awesome if we compare the features of JVx with any other application framework!

Here are the actual numbers for you:

JVx library   Swing UI
LoC   Type
107.951   Code
86.032   Comments (~ 44% of Code)
28.282   Empty lines
222.265   Total
LoC   Type
41.544   Code
22.321   Comments (~ 35% of Code)
9.249   Empty lines
73.114   Total
 
JVx library (Test cases)  
LoC   Type
29.401   Code
14.620   Comments (~ 33% of Code)
9.649   Empty lines
53.670   Total

Some additional numbers:

Files and Tests
JVx library source files   825
Swing UI source files   148
Test source files   151
Total   1124
Still a small codebase ;) and still very easy to maintain. Here are more numbers, about testing:
 
Unit tests (no UI, without manual perf. tests)   1000
Class coverage (without UI)   73%
Method coverage (without UI)   62%
Our coverage is not as good as with 2.2 but still not bad.

TOP 10 classes

Classname   LoC
DBAccess 5.775
MemDataBook 4.712
JVxTable 2.704
ArrayUtil 2.613
DBStorage 2.237
StringUtil 2.230
Server 2.058
SimpleJavaSource 1.583
PostgreSQLDBAccess 1.495
DateUtil 1.468

This are interesting numbers because in JVx 2.2, MemDataBook was on 1st place. We now have more code for database support than before. The newcomers are SimpleJavaSource and PostgreSQLDBAccess.

We tried to reduce complexity of DBAccess and MemDataBook, but complex things are complex. This is why we develop JVx. It makes complex things, simple.

VisionX update release 5.6.4001 is available

A brand new update version of VisionX - 5.6.4001 - is available!
It's a bugfix release with some cool new features.

It contains the latest reactUI, a Map location component.

The next EarlyAccess version will contain support for Tomcat 10 deployment. Since javax.servlet API was renamed to jakarta.servlet API, it's not easily possible to install an application on newer application servers. We found a great solution which makes it possible to keep it super simple.

As usual - available in the download area ;-) or as trial!
Have fun!

reactUI style example

We're happy to announce that our brand new reactUI got themes and color schemes.

We have a basic, small and mobile theme and basic, dark, orange, blue color schemes. Simply mix theme with color scheme. The result will be awesome!
I's super easy to create your own theme or color scheme. We have a style example project for you.

Let's create awesome themes and color schemes ;-)
