- License change
I'm not sure it's the best time to announce it...but from now on IWebMvc will be released under the Apache Software License (ASL 2). I've waited till today just because the initial versions were very preliminary and GPL just keeps things under control. Things have changed and IWebMvc has nearly reached the point where other people can probably contribute better ideas than me.
- Groovy support
I've talked about it recently so I'm not adding much here. It supports compiled classes and scripted (dynamic) beans. Just be careful with the IDE support. In particular with Netbeans, at least until v6.5
- Spring Webflow 2.0 support
So SWF published the first RC last week and IWebMvc already includes it. Nice! It's very well integrated with the rest of the framework, in particular with MVC, JPA, Security and AJAX. I pretend to blog about this feature in the near future.
- Jasper Reports / Dynamic Jasper support
PDF & Excel file download. Automatic grid reports in less than 20 lines of code! Really useful for statistics in the future.
- Multi file upload
Upload documents and images in multiples and group them in the server. Including a specific widget.
- Image Gallery widget
Show grouped images as a thumbnail strip or as a slideshow with one line of code!
- Rating widget
A new way to bind numbers using the latest dojo widget.
Several bug fixes and Eclipse support were also improved. Glassfish configuration as well. Check the changelog if interested!
