Coupla bugs: 1) Mac only: When you choose Logout on the File Menu of client, it asks you to log back in twice. Once when you log in, then again (disappears by itself if you don't answer it or you can cancel). Also, why is Open Solution greyed out? My users are trained to use that to refresh their solutions in certain situations. 2) On both mac and pc, the preview window when clicking the select image/place image button in developer doesn't appear to be working. Shows the same image all the time, no matter what is selected.

We want to upgrade to Servoy 5.2 but do not wish to use PostgreSQL at this time (due to customer constraints). What needs to be done to run 5.2 Developer on SQL Anywhere (that is, to launch SQL Anywhere when Developer starts)?

I was thinking that copying the 5.1.x 'database' folder to 5.2, then change the Eclipse preferences -> Servoy -> Startup -> Startup Launcher in 5.2 to

%%user.dir%%\sybase_db\dbspawn.exe|%%user.dir%%\sybase_db\dbsrv11.exe|@sybase_db\sybase.config#Path=%%Path%%;sybase_db;sybase_db\scripts


Will this work? Anything else need to be changed?

Thanks!

Does 5.2 come with an unlimited license to use Sybase as with previous versions of Servoy?

using the same launcher string as in 5.1 and copy over your database and sybase_db dir should work. the same would be to just upgrade your 5.1 install to 5.2..

I've added extra information to the upgrade notes of 5.2 on how to keep using Sybase SQL Anywhere with either clean or upgraded installations.

If I remember correctly this question was answered in one of the webinars.
With 5.1 and below you've got a perpetual license for Sybase to use with Servoy (only) so you can use that license with Servoy 5.2 as well.

Has anyone gotten popup menu to work in webclient in final release? We use the popup menu for navigation and context menus on fields and if I click one time on any of our menu's I get Error calling server. After that no forms will open, menu will not drop down anywhere. Effectively the webclient is dead. Since we rely on popup menu's extensively this is a show stopper bugger than seems to be introduced between RC3 and Final. We will create a case.

Window plugin popup menu's works fine for us, its one of the manual post install test which has to pass.
We are looking forward for your case to be able to investigate

After rebooting four times it seems to have straightened itself out. I was checking the menu issue against RC 3 and going back and fourth relaunching, and after the fourth re-launch of 5.2 Final version, the menu's all started working in the webClient. They have been working since then (Have relaunched it six times now!).

Like we have found out before, sometimes Servoy/Eclipse takes several re-launches to run correctly after syncs and updates.

There was an error in the Servoy.log about some package path couldn't be located when the popup menu component was executing. Some how, these re-launches allowed it to find the correct path to whatever it was looking for in its directory tree.

Sorry about the confusion!!!

Wonder if manually deleting the server cache (/Servoy/application_server/server/work/..) out after updates would fix this.
