-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This directory contains the 4.1 release of MetaWareJ. See : http://www.methodosit.com.cy/metawarej/about-metawarej.html and http://www.methodosit.com.cy/metawarej/metawarej-faq.html for updated information of the software. MetaWareJ is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the Apache License, Version 2.0. What's new in this version: ------------------------------ License Changed to Apache License, Version 2.0. XML definition changes - Output specific XML definitions. Can inherit and adjust XML definitions for PDF, CSV, and any output. - Support for ABSTRACT tables - Inherited forms Other changes - API improvements - JSON message passing interface. Can trigger any action using JSON input or request JSON output. - Internal re-organization to separate data handling from screen creation. Streaming screen output (read data directly to output) still supported for huge reports. - Added modified pickaday date picker from https://github.com/dbushell/Pikaday - The output format is passed as output= parameter, so that output=HTML will produce an HTML page while output=PDF will produce a PDF document. Android changes - Android uses JSON messages to a middle tier server. - Android can use https with optional client certificate. - Android interface upgrade to at least Android 3.2 (API-13) Internal changes - separated the "action" (find, update, copy, etc) from the output generation - actions buffer data by default - master/detail tables become nested tables when action is REPORT. This removed all the Report action code. - nested tables can work with a buffered dataFrom table - the various servlets were no longer needed and were removed as output is controlled by output= parameter - we can now use an XML file to buffer data directly using Processor.retrieve() (and the Processor.doAction()). This will work even if the data is retrieved from JSON server and not a JDBC database. - StaticData and MenuData use the above technique. So, Android clients can get the menu without connection to the database.
