Servoy 2.2 final Available

Postby Jan Blok » Fri Jun 10, 2005 5:46 pm

Servoy 2.2 Final is now available for download.

We would like to thank all the testers for testing the prerelease version.

Make a backup of your current Servoy installation directory if you plan to upgrade or perform a clean installation into a new directory.

You can download Servoy 2.2 from the download section on the developer website at: (auto update will be released shortly)

Most important changes:
-Module development support
-Headless Client

Major changes which may effect the working of your solutions:
[fix]-dataset.sort(...) is 1 based now
[fix]-utils.stringPosition(...) had faulty implementation
[fix]-security had a flaw that user in multiple groups did not always get the right security level
[fix]-history.getFormName() method uses a absolute index instead of relative (which was not very useful)

[enh]-toFront executed on main Servoy window when client is activated from URL
[enh]-new Servoy client shortcut icon
[enh]- "null" support in default value for globals
[enh]-improved error output when a calc is failing
[enh]-improved rollback of Servoy version (downloading old jars)
[enh]-improved focus lost on saveData (tableview won't lose focus anymore)
[fix]-loadRecords(query) with multipk did not always work correct
[fix]-freeze due to background processing in tableview/portal
[fix]-db identity columns when setting this new pk to relatedfoundsets
[fix]-focus issues when making a new method
[fix]-tooltip performance problems in Tableview
[fix]-addTab with fore or background color parameter
[fix]-search problems with numeric fields.
Fixes/Enhances in previous builds

Well done the Dev team AGAIN. 2.2 is a great product and progress of Servoy in last 12months is really astounding.

A software company that listens and is responsive to developers, and turns out tremendous tools at regular intervals is truly a rare thing. Keep up the great work and don't change the way you operate.

Thanks, to Servoy 2.2 we have finished a project for one our customers, which is a mass-mailer and sends 40.000 personalized emails, with personalized subjects, with personalized pdf, (with images) en barcode included. This all is generated on-the-fly and is sending the total mail (110kb) in every 2 seconds!!
(I must say that the slowing factor is not Servoy but the SMTP-server!)

[fix]-dataset.sort(...) is 1 based now
Could someone explain the significance of being "1 based"? Thanks.

dataset.sort(0,true) did in the past sort the first column
dataset.sort(1,true) does now sort the first column

all fuctions are 1 based, so we considered this a inconsistency...

Headless Harriet

Postby Harriet_Rosenberg » Wed Jun 15, 2005 12:18 am

Slow down, guys! I can't keep up with all these great developments. Null Globals, Version Rollback, Color Parameters. Modules, Headless Clients ...

... Headless Harriet!

(still making my way through the basics)

Seriously, this gets more fun every day. Congratulations and best of luck with this release.

Happy Harriet

Million thanks servoians. We love servoy. It has changed our way of working (we were filemaker developers previously) and it gives us peace of mind.
