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.

Start with JVx

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!

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

VisionX 5.6.2016 is out

We're happy to announce that VisionX 5.6.2016 is available!

It's an update of 5.6.925 with bugfixes, but also has some new features:

  • With VisionX 5.6.2016 it's possible to define dependent comboboxes. This means that the list of shown records can be restricted.
  • Another big new feature is that it's possible to merge the database structure (currently, no data support) during database installation. Simply upgrade your production database instead of creating a new database. Sure, it's still possible to create a new database, but it's optional. The data import can be done with our CSV Import AddOn because your production system will have different data as your development system. So it's usually very difficult to merge data automatically.
  • We have the experimental new charts and gauges integrated. The new charts are based on chartJS. To use the experimental feature, it's required to enable it manually.
  • It's now possible to use our cloud PDF converter service if you don't need your own in-house converter service. The cloud PDF converter service is optional and not part of VisionX. It's a perfect match if you use our VisionX cloud and require PDF documents.
  • Our new web UI (reactUI) is updated. It's already possible to clone the open source project, build it (create a bundle) and use your own build with VisionX.

The new release is available for all our customers. We'll release the next Early Access version in the next few days.

So, keep reading our News!

VisionX EarlyAccess program

We no longer have restricted access to our early access versions of VisionX. We build VisionX automatically every week. Not all versions will be available via early access program but many :)

Starting with today, all our customers have an early access folder in their download area and it's possible to use the latest early access version of VisionX. The latest release version will be available and the latest early access version as well.

Don't wait for the next release, be up-to-date with our early access versions. The current early access version number is 5.6.2000.

Please send us your feedback if you have any problems but you should know that early access versions don't have the same support conditions. Only release versions are part of support contracts. Our quality standards are very high and we try to avoid problems, but it's possible that some problems will occur!

The current early access version comes with all new features like: HTML editor, TAG Editor, Assignment controls, CSV Import AddOn (optional). It also contains a preview version of our upcoming react UI.

VisionX 5.6 second bugfix update release

Some minutes ago, we released VisionX 5.6.925. It's a bugfix version with smaller changes:

  • Word wrap labels

    It's now easy to use word-wrap labels. Simply use <html>test<html>

  • Web layout

    We fixed variaous problems in our web layouts. Some number editors had the wrong size after changing the value. It's not also possible to use html editors with undefined height. The height is calculated automatically.

  • Action editor

    We fixed a freeze problem with our action editor.

  • Custom css

    CSS changes are saved immediate after first change. This wasn't possible sometimes.

  • Record counter component

    We introduced a new component which shows the current number of records.

  • Better DB2 support

    We now show all available tables and views.

  • General bugfixes

    The release contains updates for some OpenSource frameworks like JVx and VaadinUI. It has lots of smaller bugfixes under the hood.

Simply get VisionX from your download area or register for a trial version.
