Servoy 8.0.1

Postby jcompagner » Mon Oct 19, 2015 10:18 pm

We are pleased to announce the availability of Servoy 8.0.1 (releaseNumber 3021)

This version is available through the download option on the Servoy website and auto update.

Always make a backup of your current Servoy installation (directory and database) before installing/upgrading.
Especially for this release because we needed a repository upgrade (now on 47). So the workspace version of your developer will also be updated.

When to switch to Servoy 8.0.1 ?

Postby Bernd.N » Wed Oct 21, 2015 1:38 am

As I see there are a lot of issues fixed that are not NGClient-related, is it recommended to switch over to Servoy 8.0.1 even when you intend to stay with the smart client for some time?
Or will all non-NGClient improvements also appear in the next Servoy 7 update?

Or in other words, does Servoy 8.0.1 hold the complete subset of the latest version of Servoy 7, and is it as stable as Servoy 7 regarding the smart client?

Hi Bernd,

Going through the issues you can see that the fix versions are 8.0.1 and 7.4.5. Servoy 7.4.5 is already available as a release candidate.
So you can use 7.4.5. to get all these bug fixes in the 7.x branch.

As for stability, consider that Servoy 8 comes with a newer Eclipse version than Servoy 7 (4.5.0 'Mars' vs 4.3.2 'Kepler') and also a newer version of Tomcat than Servoy 7 (8.x vs 6.x). So things could behave differently because of this, hopefully for the better. Servoy does a lot of internal testing, automated and otherwise, so things should be stable.
But as with every new major version (of anything) I suggest you do some proper testing yourself.

As for the new form editor in Servoy 8 that still requires some work from Servoy, you can switch back to the 'classic' form editor for non-responsive forms by ticking a checkbox in the preferences. So if you don't use ng-client at all you can work with it like Servoy 7 and below.

Hi all,

Our application uses custom login and authenticator solutions instead of the generic Servoy login. In Servoy 7 everything works fine in both Smart & Web client. However running exactly the same code in Servoy 8, we get an "internal error" after successful login (below is the error from the server log).

Does anybody else have similar issues when using custom login/authenticator solutions in Servoy 8?

I can not guess why in your case Servoy 8 would need 4 times more than Servoy 7. The Servoy Developer Team might be interested in your case, so maybe you file it to them at support.servoy.com

However I can add an experience from when I started with Servoy 7, the building took also several minutes. But then I got a faster computer with more RAM, and since them it is just about 10-20 seconds. That's very important for me, because I have to restart Servoy 7 often as we generate the i18n files ourselves from metadata, and restarting is an easy way to read the i18n file into Servoy.

the thing is that the building part (at least the javascript testing and building) is not changed at all between 7 and 8 (dltk is and servoy code around that is the same)

So i have no idea what really is different (except maybe pure servoy building checks, but those where not taking any time anyway as far as i know)

I think it had to do something with the Servoy 8 version which I installed for the training classes at Servoy World 2015. With a clean install and update to 8.0.1 it is ok.

Hi Rossen,
can it be that you changed your original question?
Because now the answers do not fit any more to your original question, that was about why your Servoy 8 needs 4-5 times longer to startup. :)

I created a case for this issue: https://support.servoy.com/browse/SVY-9015 - both the Web Client and the NG Client do not work when using custom login & authenticator solutions. Check the sample solution attached to the case and vote for this issue if it affects your projects.

Yes, I also prefer clean new installs, e.g. I would not install Windows 10 to any running Windows 7/8, but only to an empty hard disk.

This issue applies to the Web Client only if the property "servoy.webclient.nice.urls" is set to "true" - so if you happen to hit this issue, just change the property to "false" until Servoy fixes the problem.

I just asked a colleague who tried it out and he said it is running fine.
Servoy is build on an open source stack like Java, JavaScript, Eclipse and HTML5 for the new client, and most use postgreSQL as the database backend.
As that stack is for sure compatible with Win10, so should Servoy be.
And even in case there would be major issues, you can be sure the Servoy devTeam will fix them.
