On the developer download page the Windows Installer and the CrossPlatform installer are switched.

Also I tried to update my 6.01a via the "Check Updates" function and I get:

"Unable to read repository"

http://www.servoy.com/developer/6xx_updates

"Not a valid repository location"

Thx

You are right about full download file switch, I asked internally to have it corrected.
The update works fine for me, do more people have this problem with updating a1?

The upgrade works fine for me after I tried it after you comments.
Although I do have a request to make the iServoy page (or whatever is gonna be replaced by it) optional.
I added an issue for this in the support system (#356735). I.e. just make it available when *I* need it.

Are the issues fixed in Servoy 5.2.5 and 5.2.6 (specifically the memory leak fixed in 5.2.5 and the GUI issue fixed 5.2.6) applicable for Servoy 6a2 and if yes, when can we expect a new 6a3 release which addresses them?

memory leak is in 6.0 alpha2 (and 5.2.5) also is the global variable with related valuelist bug (as in 5.2.6)

Johan,

now that we have a built install of Servoy 6, can we use it as a target in Eclipse to work from SVN (the way we do it with the Servoy 5.2 branch), I guess there would be less extra libs to download this way.

What do you advise?

you can use that as your target dir (thats always good so that you use the latest plugins)
But its better to always download the few server jars because those can go out of sync.

Got it. I have it running nicely pointing servoy_install to the alpha 2 installation, adding the 2 server jars to libs_extra and updating the target.
Thanks!

[enh] 281441 dbmgr.rollbackEditedRecords and saveData with foundSet and record parameter

On a call to saveData does this new functionality (passing a foundset) batch the update queries or does it iterate through the records and run a single update query for each record on the foundset? I ask this because we are searching for ways to optimize updates and inserts (aren't we all). We love the functionality of operating on the foundset and having data broadcasted as a natural result of that, but we also know that it is quicker to batch updates or inserts in a sql statement and reload the records. Just curious.

it is not a batch like sql batch or bulk insert
But from a client (especially smart client) it is one batch call to the server that then is inserted in a tied loop to the database on the server.

the databroadcast is not yet done as a bulk to a client, thats a call per record that you update/insert
