VisionX 5.9 is out

What a great day!

We're happy to announce VisionX 5.9. It's a really cool version.
The exact version number is 5.9.570.

The version comes with the latest release build of our react user interface and support for our latest mobile application. We recommend react UI but we still have our good old vaadin UI on board. Our vaadin UI is still a good decision and we also continue development. No worries. As we told you in VisionX 5.8 release notes, all new cool features will be available for react UI only. In latest react UI we also bundled our latest design mode feature.

We recommend the update to 5.9 of all previous versions because it's backwards compatible and you get lots of new features and all bugfixes which were reported of all VisionX users. If we release AddOn updates, we target the new VisionX version and it's not guaranteed that old VisionX versions will get the updates.

If you plan using mobile apps, also update to 5.9 because we'll release an update of our VisionX app in the next days. This app requires VisionX 5.9 or later.

An important difference to VisionX 5.8 is that you need a valid license to use our new reactUI. If you already own a license for HTML5 applications, everything is fine and if you have problems, simply send an E-Mail to our product support. Before 5.9 it was possible to use the experimental versions of reactUI without HTML5 license. Same license restriction applies to mobile applications.

What's new?

The main focus was on bugfixes, react UI and mobile.

  • Setting favicon for reactUI (fixed)
  • Popup menus with custom actions (fixed)
  • Full-text filter with only one column (fixed)
  • Storage editor default selection of current table (enhancement)
  • Support database updates (EDB, Oracle, Postgresql) (enhancement)
  • Java up to 19+ support (enhancement)
  • reactUI production ready (enhancement)
  • VisionX app ready (enhancement)

The next version of VisionX will be a feature release with focus on usability.

As usual, VisionX 5.9.570 is available in the download area for our customers.
Have fun!

VisionX cloud update

With VisionX, it's possible to create applications in minutes instead of hours. After your application is ready, you want to use it. If you own the right infrastructure and server environments, this is an easy task. Simply deploy your application in your infrastrcuture and you're done. If you don't have your own infrastructure, no worries. With our VisionX cloud it's super easy to run your application.

We introduced VisionX cloud together with VisionX 5.6, two years ago. In January this year, we had to change our VisionX cloud because our infrastructure provider closed its services. From one day to the next we had a huge problem. No other service provider had a comparable solution for us, so we made the decision to do everything on our own. Some weeks later, we were up and running without service interruption. Our VisionX cloud is now more flexible, faster and built with open standards. It's Docker based. Our docker images are hosted on Docker hub. Our VisionX cloud uses official postgresql and our extended tomcat image. If you have your own docker infrastructure, it's possible to use our images as well.

We didn't only change the infrastructure and re-created the VisionX cloud, we also took the time and add some new features.

With next VisionX version and an update of VisionX cloud AddOn, it will be possible to access your deployment history:

Deployment history

The detail view will show you some metrics of your application like RAM and DISC usage:

We also improved our cloud management tool and introduced a maintenance mode. You'll see a new message:



if cloud is temporarily not available.

Our automatic deployment process is now faster than before and we improved our service monitoring. Overall, it's an awesome solution for your applications. Create and Deploy an application in minutes!

VisionX, pin to windows taskbar

Prior VisionX 5.9.120 it wasn't possible to pin VisionX to windows taskbar. Oh, yes it was possible to pin the icon but after pressing the icon, a second VisionX icon appeared. So, it didn't work. We tried to find a perfect solution, but with launch4j it wasn't possible. A switch to jsmooth wasn't an option so we tried to find a nice solution. Our current solution just works but is not perfect. It's possible to pin VisionX but not with the running process.

Here's a video to show you how it works:

The full source code and documentation is available here.
