Low-Code mit VisionX - Artikel

Es gibt seit kurzem einen neuen Artikel über VisionX und Low-Code in der deutschen Presse. Hier das Intro:

Die Begriffe Low-Code und No-Code sind zwei neue Sterne am Himmel. Im Jahre 2014 wurde Low-Code von Forrester Research benannt und erst in den letzten Monaten wurde richtig Fahrt aufgenommen. Fast wöchentlich tauchen neue Tools auf. Eine Empfehlung auszusprechen, ist nahezu unmöglich. Auch im Java-Umfeld gibt es viele Tools, die den Anforderungen von Low- und No-Code gerecht werden. Eines dieser Tools wird in diesem Artikel vorgestellt: VisionX.

Der Artikel referenziert auch auf einen etwas älteren Artikel, der hier zu finden ist.

Der vollständige Artikel über Low-Code ist hier zu finden. Prädikat lesenswert :-)

VisionX EA 5.6.2025 is available!

The current EA version of VisionX 5.6.2025 contains some bugfixes and improvements.

Especially the mobile Preview in browsers had a big problem. We also released new vesions of our AddOns: Profiles & User Filter, CSV Import, Cloud, AuditLog and REST.

Also integrated is the latest preview build of our next generation web interface.

As usual - available in the download area ;-)
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!

Simple HTML Editor for VisionX

With next VisionX update, we'll offer a simple HTML editor for labels.

HTML editor

HTML editor

The HTML editor will be available as customizer for labels and buttons. It supports you with colors, font (bold, underline, ...) and alignment. It'll be possible to work with html code or to use the visual editing mode.

New TAG editor control

With next VisionX update release, we'll introduce a new control: TAG editor

The TAG editor shows a list of keywords as separate panels with a small remove button, like this one:

TAG editor

TAG editor

The editor has different options. It's possible to show the input field before or after the tag list, as first or last element in the list. It's possible to choose from a list of known tags and optionally extend the list of known tags.

The TAG editor stores all keywords with a specific delimiter e.g. semicolon. The control will work with every text column without any changes.

New CSV import AddOn

With next VisionX update release we'll also release a new CSV AddOn. The AddOn contains a module for an application. The module will replace the standard export functionality of tables with a configurable export functionality.

Currently, if you export data of a table, a CSV will be generated with visible columns and labels. It's not possible to remove a column or to change the separator. To offer more options, we have a new feature:

Export dialog

Export dialog

With new export dialog, it'll be possible to show or save the export data. It's also possible to use column names as labels.

The module also comes with an awesome import dialog:

Import dialog

Import dialog

The dialog supports retry on errors and a live preview of imported data.

Assignment Controls for next VisionX update

We have some really cool new controls for you and your applications. We talk about assignment controls.

An assignment control can be used to solve a specific problem: Imagine you have a user and roles in your application. Every user can have multiple roles. To assign a role to a user, you need for example a table control. Every record in the table is a valid role assignment. To fill the table, it's necessary to have a combobox with all available roles.

This is a standard functionality of VisionX but it's not user friendly. So we tried to solve the problem with better controls.

Here are some impressions:

Simple assignment

Choose item

Shuffle Box

Matrix

With above controls you have better user experience and the Matrix table is perfect for a fast overview.

The controls will be available in the next VisionX update release - this week.

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.

VisionX 5.6 - second update release - postponed

We planned a VisionX update release for this week, but we have to postpone for one week.

The reason is simple: We found two smaller problems during the test phase and want to fix them with the update release.
Also the EPlug update release was planned for the next week and we want to release both together.

Please be patient one more week ;-)

VisionX 5.6 bugfix update release

Yesterday, we released VisionX 5.6.458. It's a bugfix version with 3 changes:

  • Application search

    The application search bar will be shown if you have more than 5 applications in the list. Sometimes the search result was not correct.

  • E-Mail Default Sender

    We had a problem with old email configurations. If the old tag defaultsender was used, it wasn't possible to change the email settings. This was the case with installed Workflow AddOn.

  • Deployment Exception

    It wasn't possible to use the deployment wizard. It had an error, if you didn't use the VisionX cloud AddOn.
