Es fluttert gewalting - Artikel

Es gibt seit kurzem einen neuen Artikel über unsere brandneue Flutter App in der deutschen Presse. Hier das Intro:

Wer eine App für mobile Geräte entwickeln möchte, steht zumindest vor einer wichtigen Frage: Mit welcher Technologie soll die App realisiert werden? Da es aktuell verschiedenste Möglichkeiten gibt, ist die Antwort nicht sofort klar. Mit diesem Problem war das Framework-Team von SIB Visions ebenfalls konfrontiert, als es darum ging, einen Client für das Open Source Application Framework JVx zu entwickeln. Wie
vor allem was umgesetzt wurde, wird ...

VisionX with Docker support

The next VisionX release will support Docker. If you are not familiar with Docker, it's worth a try. It offers super fast deployment and app delivery without additional hardware or software installation. If you're interested in Docker simply use Google.

The whole Docker technology is a big plus for application developers and also for our low-code platform VisionX. We will support Docker deployment with our next release.

Every application, created with VisionX, requires a Java application server like Tomcat and a relational database like Postgresql in order to run. If you don't own such runtime environment, it might be tricky to roll out your application! Sure, there are very cheap hosting provider which offers root server and application hosting, but this requires lots of IT skills. With docker, deployment is getting easier for you.

With next VisionX, it will be possible to create a pre-defined docker container in seconds. Use this container to create your own docker image and use Docker to run your application.

We'll show you some impressions how this will work:

Docker support

And it will also be possible to use existing Docker Hosting Provider to run your application.
We tried it out with sloppy.io:

sloppy.io

Our docker container uses our own Tomcat definition, which can be found here. Feel free to use our tomcat image in your environment. It solves some common configuration problems like custom port definition, username, password.

VisionX 5.4 Update release is available

VisionX 5.4.2450 is available!

It's a small update release with following improvements:

  • MySql database support

    We fixed a problem with app export (from embedded PostgreSql) and re-import into a MySql database. It wasn't possible to configure combobox columns.

  • Popup Menu button click

    Sometimes, a click on the arrow of a popup menu button, didn't show the popup and triggered the button action instead.

  • Screen generation

    A new screen with only one table was generated with an additional "white" panel.

  • Filter AddOn update

    We improved the Filter AddOn and now support And/Or grouping. It's also possible to save and load filter settings.

    Some impressions:

  • Filter Editor API

    We improved our Filter Editor API. It's now possible to define the Full-text Filter column names and also which column names can be filtered in general. It's possible to group filter editors by condition (or, and, ...). This enhancement is relevant for developers.

VisionX 5.4 is available

VisionX 5.4.1835 is available!

It's a great release with big changes.

The new VisionX version got updates of used open source libraries. It runs with openJDK 12 and supports openJDK 14. It comes with awesome responsive UI support for desktop, web and mobile. We support our brand new mobile UI which is still under development.

What's different?

  • MorphPanel navigation bar

    The MorphPanel shows a small navigation bar directly in the screen. You can use this bar to switch between the tabs without opening the customizer every time.

  • New work-screen wizard

    We have 4 types of screens: Table with Detail form, Table, Form, Empty. Each type has different layout options for Web, Desktop, Mobile and Universal. The difference are gaps and margins and default settings of elements. Some layouts include full-text search and some don't include search options.

  • New customizable screen generators

    The screen generators are customizable for developers. Simply create your own or extend an existing generator and use it directly in VisionX. Simply create your own definition file like this one:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <generator>
      <group text="Table with detail form"
             image="/c/s/v/i/w/w/category_tableform.png">
        <entry class="com.sibvisions.visionx.uigenerator.WebTableFormUIGenerator"
               text="Web layout"
               image="/c/s/v/i/w/w//group_web.png" />
        <entry class="com.sibvisions.visionx.uigenerator.MobileTableFormUIGenerator"
               text="Mobile layout"
               image="/c/s/v/i/w/w//group_mobile.png" />
        <entry class="com.sibvisions.visionx.uigenerator.TableFormUIGenerator"
               text="Desktop layout"
               image="/c/s/v/i/w/w//group_desktop.png" />
        <entry class="c.s.visionx.uigenerator.UniversalTableFormUIGenerator"
               text="Universal layout"
               image="/c/s/v/i/w/w//group_universal.png" />
      </group>
    </generator>

  • Live Preview without any differences

    We improved our UI for browsers. New layouts, better performance and same features.

  • Shared folder support

    An awesome new feature is the shared folder support for your projects if you are a developer. Simply put your POJOs or Beans in the new shared folder and use this classes in your client or server classes.

  • New domain management

    Change pre-defined or create custom datatypes. The screen is available in VisionX' Administration menu.

The download area already contains links to latest VisionX binaries.

Please report any problems as usual and have fun with VisionX.

VisionX 5.4 is on the way

I'm happy to announce that VisionX 5.4 is on the way. The code is complete and tested. We have some additional tasks to do, but it's ready!

It's one of the really cool things. It has a bunch of new lib versions and got updates for mobility. The web UI of applications is faster than before and we have full responsive support built-in. Not only for web applications, also for desktop applications.

Another big milestone is the new mobile client. It was built from scratch. It's a wonderful piece of software, built with Flutter and Dart. It's one native app for iOS and Android. We will replace the old client in the near future. The new client supports all our layout features and much more... it's modern!

Workflow Engine for Oracle Forms

I'm happy to announce that our Workflow Engine will work with Oracle Forms.

The current state is beta but we'll release our Workflow engine in the next days. We found some time to test the integration in Oracle Forms and the result is soo cool. It works like a charm.

So it will be possible to embed our Workflow engine in your oracle Forms. It'll be possible for your users to design custom flows and processes. The engine itself is database driven and will work with your Oracle Forms application.

More details will follow in the next days, but here's a first impression:

It's a standard Oracle Forms window/canvas with our Workflow Designer, embedded as Java Bean.

Feel free to ask your questions ;-)
