[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 1.12.0 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.

Enjoy!

[ANN] Apache Isis 1.11.1 Released

The Apache Isis team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Isis v1.11.1

This is a bug-fix release that re-releases v1.11.0 compiled to run under Java 7 (the previous release incorrectly used some Java 8 APIs).

The release also includes two minor updates to the simpleapp archetype: a minor fix to the JDOQL strings, and the reinstatement of .launch files for running the generated app within the Eclipse IDE.

You can access this release directly from the Maven central repo [1], or download the release and build it from source [2].

[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!
