JHeadstart 10.1.3 Service Update 1 Available
By Steven Davelaar on Sep 29, 2006
Licensed JHeadstart users can now download JHeadstart 10.1.3 Service Update 1 (build 10.1.3.0.97) from the Consulting Supplement Option.
Apart from a number of bug fixes (see the release notes for a list),
this service update contains some functional enhancements:
- File Upload in Table Layout. It is now possible to generate file upload items in a table layout.
Download/Images in Table Layout. It is now possible to generate file
download links or images in a table layout.
- Checkboxes based on String attributes in Table Layout. It is now
possible to generate checkboxes that are directly based on String
attributes with a two-value domain (matching the true/false state of
the checkbox). It is no longer necessary to create transient attributes
of type Boolean in your ViewObject to be able to generate checkboxes in table layout.
Access Denied Go To Next Group. When the user navigates to a
group he is not allowed to access, JHeadstart can automatically
redirect the user to the start page of the next group for which the
user is authorized.
- Show Template Names in Source.
There is a new service-level checkbox property "Show Template Names in
Source". When checked (the default) the generated sources contain
comments indicating which Velocity template was used to generate each
10.1.3 compatible with JDeveloper 10.1.3.1 which is expected to be
released soon. (JHeadstart can NOT be used with the JDeveloper 10.1.3.1
