It's all been a bit quiet on the western front. I have however been working behind the scenes on an upgrade to Java 5/6 and Tomcat 5.5/6. This has needed some re-factoring to take Generics into account (I hate seeing compiler warnings) so I am trying to test it a bit more thoroughly. Hopefully not long now before I kick out a 1.2 version. Keep looking.

After a long wait I have finaly released 1.1 Beta 2.
There have been a few minor tweaks here and there to improve consistancy and usability
New in the 1.1b2 Release
Updated the SQL that selects allowed views based on changes suggested by LukeT.
Updated the scheduler code to make it use 24 hour clock.
Added a very simple chat room type thing to the intranet.
Made the ViewHandler throw a 404 when the template isn't there.
Fixed a broken link in the test app.
Added testConnection strings to the connection pools created in
Fixed some things to accessing views via SelectView works a bit
neater. (This provides a nice stripped down interface for mobile viewing.
An accidental discovery, using the Select View option from a Tapwave Zodiac showed how usefull this could be to access the same data via mobile devices so I have just tidied up those screens.

New in the 1.1b1 Release
Tidied up some of the layouts for consistency between applications.
Added an application table to logically group views and layouts for export and import features. Added an XML Export just need to figure out how to import it.
A Lucene plug-in has been added to enable easy text searching of records. The intranet demo has been extended to make use of this functionality
Serious re-organise of the SQL scripts to minimise the use of postgress specific sequence commands. The unique ids are now allocated by setting the default for the field to be nextval('sequence_name') and all insert
scripts have been modified to accomodate this. This should ease any migration to other databases by minimising the chnages needed to support alternative unique id generation methods like mysqls auto_increment field types.
The code has been moved about a bit to create more meaningful packages and the SQL scripts and modules have been updated to reflect the changes

The 1.1 Alpha 3 release has finaly made it.
New in the 1.1a3 Release
Added a basic scheduler component that can execute views at regular intervals which can be used to generate reports or other asyncrhronous tasks.
Added the ability to specify default values for fields in the database.
Updated some of the context.xml to work with Tomcat 5.0.25 it should still work with older versions as I didn't need to change much.
Modified the build scripts to work with ant 1.6.1 (concat behaves slightly differently and broke the viewmanager.properties) again it should work with older versions.

This is the first release including a major re-factoring of the code. The 1.0 Release will be maintaines as the current stable untill this release matures.
The data access methods have been completely abstracted to a set of DAOs to enable much easier extension of the framework to access different data sources.
As if to demonstrate the ease of adding access to new data sources I have implimented DAOs to access JMS Queues, JMS Topic and XML Files.
Inorder to facilitate this refactor changes have been made to the database which require the running of a migration script to any existing database. Most views will be preserved and continue to work OK. Menus have ceased to exist as separate entities now and are special cases of views so any pre-existing menus will not exist once you have migrated the database. Where possible upgrade paths from 1.0 to the latest 1.1 will be maintained.

Just a very minor release update to alter the behaviour of WARFARE. Requests for Unauthorised views now present a login dialog instead of being ignored.
