[ANN] Apache Isis simpleapp-archetype 1.13.2.1 Released

This release is for the simpleapp archetype only.  It:

  • improves docker support - allowing docker images to be created easily
  • reduces the amount of boilerplate (by backing out some of the mixins)
  • fixes an issue with the fixture scripts

For example, the webapp can be packaged as a Docker image using:

    mvn package -Dmavenmixin-docker \
                           -Ddocker-plugin.imageName=mycompany/myapp

and can then be run using:

    docker run -d -p8080:8080 mycompany/myapp

See the README.adoc (generated by the archetype) for further details.

Full release notes are available on the Apache Isis website at [1].

You can access this release directly from the Maven central repo [2], or 
download the release and build it from source [3].

Enjoy!

[ANN] Apache Isis version 1.13.2 Released

The Apache Isis team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Isis v1.13.2.

This is a maintenance release with a number of minor improvements and bug fixes.

Of these the main improvement is that the simpleapp archetype has been substantially reworked to be more modular.  This release also closes the ticket to provide a better DB migration story; this has been implemented by way of the (non-ASF) Isis addons' flywaydb module.

Other improvements in this release include:
  • Prevent double click on buttons
  • Use 'readonly' rather than 'disabled' tag (to allow copying of text)
  • More flexibility with the @Mixin annotation
  • Improve SudoService
Full release notes are available on the Apache Isis website.

You can access this release directly from the Maven central repo, or download the release and build it from source.

[ANN] Apache Isis 1.12.1 Released

The Apache Isis team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Isis v1.12.1

This is a bug fix release for Apache Isis 1.12.0.  The primary issue it addresses are spurious concurrency exceptions that can be thrown when editing an object.  It also addresses a subtle issue where the new support in JAXB view models for auto-edit can cause some dirty objects not to be updated.

Full release notes are available on the Apache Isis website at [1].

You can access this release directly from the Maven central repo [2], or download the release and build it from source [3].

[ANN] Apache Isis version 1.12.0 Released

The Apache Isis team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Isis v1.12.0.

New features in this release include:

  • much enhanced support for custom layouts, using an optional separate XML layout file Xxx.layout.xml.  This is similar in concept to the earlier support we have had for custom layouts through a .layout.json file, but introduces the ability to position object members anywhere using (bootstrap3) columns and rows.  It also brings in support for tab groups, and allows object members to be included in the page more than once (eg a table view and also a calendar view).
  • a change to the editing of objects: rather than an 'edit' button which toggles the entire page into edit mode, instead each property is edited individually.
  • various new domain services.  Some of these are in supoprt of the dynamic layouts functionality, others including new access into Apache Isis' metamodel.  In addition, the DomainObjectContainer service has been deprecated, replaced by a number of fine-grained services such as RepositoryService and MessageService.
  • a number of new mixins, to automatically surface in the UI an entity's id, version (if any) as properties, and actions to download the layout XML and other metadata actions.  (These can always be hidden using either security or by writing a subscriber; see the migration notes).
  • JAXB view models are now automatically editable by default.

Full release notes are available on the Apache Isis website.

You can access this release directly from the Maven central repo, or download the release and build it from source.

[ANN] Apache Isis version 1.11.0 Released

The Apache Isis team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Isis v1.11.0.

The main focus for this release is on the REST API and on view models using JAXB:

* the Restful Objects viewer now supports simplified representations intended to make it easier to write custom Javascript (and other) clients that consume the REST API; these are obtained using the HTTP Accept header. There is also support for Swagger spec files so that the REST API can be more easily explored and tested.  Separately, the x-ro-follow-links capability for RO spec representations is now supported.

* JAXB-annotated classes are now recognised as view models; these also enable the contents collections to be part of the view model’s state (previously only view model properties were recognised). The new UrlEncodingService allows long URLs (for view models) to be converted into shorter URLs; this also allows the URL to optionally be encrypted.

* The release also includes improved control for domain events (these can now be suppressed if required) , and a new category of UI events (so that titles, icons and CSS classes can be provided by event bus subscribers).

Full release notes are available on the Apache Isis website.  Please also read the migration notes.

You can access this release directly from the Maven central repo, or download the release and build it from source.

Enjoy!

RAD RACE 2015: 7 proprietary CASE tools, and Apache Isis

On Sept 25th and 26th we (Jeroen van der Wal & Dan Haywood) took part in the Original RAD Race competition. This is a competition staged each year, this year (as in previous years) hosted and sponsored by Cap Gemini, and held in their offices in Utrecht, Netherlands. 

The competition consists of teams of exactly two team members; there were eight in total. The competition is held under very strict conditions: 8 hours of development on the first day, and a further 4 hours of coding the next. If you do the maths you’ll work out that means a sum total of 24 hours (2 team members x 12 hours), or 3 person-days.

We asked and were granted permission to develop our application as open source; our entry is in a github repo. If you look through the commit history you’ll see that all the work was done in those 12 hours (8 on 25 Sept 2015, a further 4 on 26 Sept). All the other teams used proprietary tools such as NoutBuilder, ThinkWise, Progress, SalesForce, Uniface and Mendix. We were the only open source entry, using Apache Isis (along with supporting modules in Isis Addons); in fact we think we are the first open source entry in the 17 years history of the competition.

OK, we didn’t win…​ but we got the impression we were mid-table, which we think is pretty good in the face of the competition. But you can judge for yourself; either download and build the code, or simply take a look at the various screenshots/our commentary on the README of the repo.

The README also has some of our "learnings" that we concluded from taking part in the competition.
