Moqui Framework Release Notes =========================================================================== Release 1.5.0 - 07 Mar 2015 =========================================================================== Moqui Framework 1.5.0 is a major new feature and bug fix release. This release includes a number of UI improvements in XML Screens and Forms including lazy-loading trees (with jstree), more complete database-driven forms, general form response saving (together support DB-driven surveys, and can also be used with any XML Form), ability to include entire screen sections in other screens, required screen parameters so explicit checking isn't necessary (most screens with parameters need this), significant style improvements based on updated Metis (and Bootstrap, jquery, etc), a new dark/light style switcher, and restored use of screen themes to load CSS, JS, images, inserted text and templates, and much more. One major new feature in this release is EntitySync which duplicates data between systems based on update timestamps. This can move data between tenants, systems on different networks and used for different purposes, and so on. Another major feature is the system-system messaging that is a store and forward message queue, or in other words it persists outgoing messages to allow retry in sending or even modify and retry, and incoming messages to allow retry in processing, modify and retry, etc. This can be used along with or instead of a lower-level message queue to provide more visibility at a business level and to facilitate production support for messages with issues. It is configurable so that different services can be used to process different messages (send, receive, consume). Both EntitySync and System-System Messages are new and not yet vetted in production so should be considered beta features as of this release. The Tools application has been split into System and Tools applications targeted at the different roles of system administrators and developers. There are new screens in the System app for security (users, user groups, and artifact groups with preferences, permissions, authz, tarpits), for Entity Sync to review status and create/maintain, and for System-System Messages to review incoming and outgoing messages and handle issues with messages. There are also improvements in the Tools screens for developers including various Auto Screen improvements, an Artifact Statistics screen with counts of various artifacts and improved service detail with highlighted display of actual and generated source. NOTE: This release, just as the previous, required JDK 7 to run. It also includes the invoke dynamic variation of Groovy (which requires Java 7) for significantly enhanced performance. NOTE: The webroot, tools, and example components are now in the new runtime/base-component directory instead of the runtime/component directory to keep them separate from add-on components. There is also a new runtime/component-lib directory for library components that are loaded after mantle (if present) and before the components in the runtime/component directory. New Features: - Updated Apache Camel to 2.14.1, Apache CSV to 1.1, Apache Derby to, Apache FOP to 1.1 (now includes Batik 1.7), Apache Lucene to 4.10.3, Apache Shiro to 1.2.3, Ehcache to 2.9.0, ElasticSearch to 1.4.4, Freemarker to 2.3.21, Groovy to 2.4.1 (indy), Liquibase to 3.3.2, OrientDB to 1.7.9, Winstone to 1.7.0 - Updated Metis Admin Template to version 2.2.7, thanks to contribution from Osman Nuri Okumuş (onokumus), the author of Metis; this updates jQuery to 2.1.1, jQuery UI to 1.11.0, Bootstrap to 3.2.0, and various other updates - More profiling (with JProfiler) and performance improvements, especially in the Entity and Screen Facades - Added elFinder connector for the Moqui ResourceFacade - Added Tools screen to browse ResourceFacade resources using elFinder - Can now schedule services with a cron string in Tools Run Service screen - Added cache warming on start (disabled in dev conf) - Various improvements to Tools screens for layout and pagination - Added convert#Uom service - Added clone#DataDocument service - Added WebFacade.sendResourceResponse() method to stream content from any Resource Facade location - Artifact Authz now gets parameters from entity and service operations and if new ArtifactGroupMember.filterMap field is populated checks each filter entry to see if it matches corresponding parameter entry, otherwise authz rule does not apply - Added System-System Message functionality with persisted outgoing and incoming messages and services to manage queueing, sending, receiving, and consuming - Added UI for administration of System-System Messages - Added UI for Security administration (users, user groups, and artifact groups with preferences, permissions, authz, tarpits) - Added UI for EntitySync administration - Added sync service call transaction options (ignore and cache) to match those available through the service definition - Made XML Actions service-call.@transaction options match those in the service definition, added code generation for all options - Added ServiceFacade.callJsonRpc() method to more conveniently call remote JSON-RPC services - XML Screen: - Added tree element for XML Screen that renders a lazy-loaded tree with links using jstree (currently version 3.0.3); see the wiki.xml screen in HiveMind for an example of its use - Added section-include element to include a section from another screen - Various XML Screen elements have more consistent id behavior with string expansion and adding the listEntryIndex suffix, which is now also set in section-iterate (in addition to form-list as before) - Added container-box to XML Screen with header, toolbar, and body - Improved container element in XML Screen with better id handling and a type which (in HTML) translates to the tag used. - Added @style attributes to link and label in XML Screen - In a form-list with no @list-entry attribute creates a ${@list}_entry field along with the _index and _has_next fields for convenience in getting at the object in the List (which implements the Map interface, often an EntityValue and nice to get at it directly) - Added form-single.field-layout.field-row-big element to do what field-row used to do with more than 2 field-ref elements, putting all fields in a single column - Put CSS references back in theme instead of direct in webroot.xml - Added support for header logo, header title, body class, and footer items in theme to make applications easier to brand through theme data - Added theme support for header navbar items with FTL snippets coming from the database theme records, example in the Mantle MyAccount app to show count of unread incoming messages and link to view them - Added dark/light pseudo-theme switcher, switches body classes from Bootstrap on the fly and saves user preference (default comes from theme) - Links are now disabled when going to a screen the user is not authorized for along with failed transition condition - Screen paths can now start with a // and be a sparse path where each name in the path is searched for in the subscreen hierarchy from the root screen; can also find content this way; note that this may involve loading a lot of screen definitions and in dev mode will be slower, but in production (cache timeouts turned off) the full expanded path is cached as are the screen definitions so there is very little overhead - To help with XML Screen loading overhead, especially in dev mode with timeouts turned on, now only reloads if the file's last modified time has changed - Added date-period form field widget to show drop-downs for this/next/last day/week/month/year as an alternative to an explicit date range - Added link.@dynamic-load-id attribute to load a link into a dynamic-container using its ID - Added 'screen' option for link.@url-type to refer directly to a screen without going through a transition (technically transition can do this too, but looks funny); made @url-type an expanded string - Added support for screen.parameter.@required attribute, show error message instead of rendering screen if a parameter is not passed - XML Form text-line auto-complete now passes through parameters defined on the screen and transition - Added XML Form text-line.ac-show-value attribute which defaults to true and if set to false doesn't use the span by the input box to show what was selected - DbForm forms can now be used independently rather than just modifying existing XML Screen forms by using 'moqui.screen.form.DbForm' or 'DbForm' as the location, before the hash (#), in the @extends attribute - Added FormResponse/Answer entities to save form responses from any form based on form field names; can be used with DbFrom to have flexible database driven survey forms - Autocomplete fields (with text-line.@ac-transition) now hide the ID/value and put the label in the input box; they also do a server call with the initial value to get a label for it if there is no @ac-initial-text attribute - Added container-row and row-col elements for 12 column responsive layouts currently implemented with the Bootstrap 12 col styles - Added transition-include element to reuse transition definitions - Added @condition attribute to link and label elements - Added support _openDialog parameter or context field to specify a dialog (container-dialog or dynamic-dialog) to show on load - Entity Facade: - Added in operator (_op) for searchFormInputs/search-form-inputs - Added entity.field.@default attribute with a Groovy expression to set a default for a field based on other fields, constants, etc - Added DataDocumentCondition.operator field, uses same operator values as XML Actions econdition.@operator - Added update option to field.enable-audit-log to create audit records for updates only, not creates - Added entity.@sequence-primary-prefix attribute for a per-entity prefix that can be and expanded string expression using field values, etc - Removed EECA triggers for find operations; these are not generally useful and add overhead to the typically significant number of find operations, including cached ones - Initial implementation of EntitySync feature with example in the example component; should be considered beta but has gone through various tests in non-production environments - Added entity.@enable-audit-log attribute which is used as the default for all fields of the entity - Added EntityAuditLog.artifactStack field with the artifact stack used to do the audited update - Entity ECA rules that run after an update and have get-original-value=true now really get the originalValue from before the update even though they run after. Bug Fixes: - Fixed security issue where current password was stored in UserPasswordHistory with 2-way encryption. Now only previous passwords are stored in UserPasswordHistory on password change, and they are stored in the hashed (one-way encrypted) form along with the salt and hash type. - Fixed delete buttons not working on the Find Auto Screen - Fixed links with images (link.image element) FTL error - Required service parameters used to use the Groovy definition of empty but this is annoying for numbers and such (a zero is generally a valid non-empty service parameter), so now uses null for any object or zero length String as the definition of empty for required parameters - Fixed issues with complex-alias where aliased entities were not add to list of aliased entities used and alias level function was not added - Fixed tx cache issue where a value could be updated after putting it into the cache causing an attempt to read the original to get an updated value - Changed ResourceReference.init() to use ExecutionContextFactory instead of ExecutionContext for cases where the object is long-lived - Fixed search#DataDocuments issues with documentType parameter, adding it to the count query (was getting wrong counts because it was left out), set to null if an empty String as ElasticSearch treats that as a real one - Fixed issue with a distinct query where order by fields are not selected, Entity Facade now automatically selects order by fields for distinct queries - Fixed issue with merging row-actions in list forms, was cloning row-actions node instead of the actions nodes under it - Fixed issue with form-list-column nodes not getting removed when merging - Fixed issue with deepCopyNode copying attributes, the original Node's attribute Map was used instead of being copied allowing attributes to be modified in the copy of the Node - Fixed thread deadlock issue in dev mode (with ArtifactHit entity logging enabled) caused by refreshing DataFeed and DataDocument settings in a scheduled job and page request happening around the same time - Fixed thread contention issue checking ArtifactHit near startup - Fixed issue with EntityValue.checkFks using find instead of findAll to get type one relationships - Fixed issue with lastUpdatedStamp not getting set on updates - Fixed fairly recent issue with service auth* parameters being ignored in service calls, especially remote service calls - EntityFind.count() now selects all fields by default to match what list() and iterator() do, and to not mess things up when calling count() before calling iterator() - In XML Forms the display and display-entity field types no longer default to the value from the @text attribute, if there is no direct entry value the hidden field should be empty - Fixed issue with Quartz service calls and job data associated with the trigger, now gets data map from job and trigger - Fixed issue with the Content-Type HTTP header in JSON requests when it has one or more parameters. =========================================================================== Release 1.4.1 - 01 Aug 2014 =========================================================================== Moqui Framework 1.4.1 is a minor new feature and bug fix release. Many of the new features and bug fixes are related to multi-tenant support including better isolation of tenants and tenant provisioning services. Other fixes and improvements are related to Service ECA rules, jobs, DB setup, and the tx cache. This release also has various embedded documentation (annotations, etc) improvements done along with the Making Apps with Moqui book which is now available and has comprehensive documentation of Moqui Framework and a summary of Mantle Business Artifacts. NOTE: Starting with this version Moqui Framework requires Java 7 or later because updated libraries require Java 7. Partly because of this Moqui itself will also start to use Java 7 features. New Features: - Updated Apache Jackrabbit to 2.8.0, Apache Lucene to 4.8.1, ElasticSearch to 1.2.1 - Added UserGroupPreference, like UserPreference but for user groups. UserFacade.getPreference() now looks for group preference when no user preference is found. - Changed Service ECA rules with @when of tx-commit or tx-rollback to attach to the transaction after the service is run so that results of the service run are available. - Changed datasource configuration so that if datasources other than the one for the default-group-name (transactional) are not specified then the default-group-name one is used. There is a similar change for the TenantDataSource so that only the one for the default-group-name (transactional) is required for each tenant. - Changed the Derby database default configuration to use a single MoquiDEFAULT database instead of separate transactional, analytical, nosql, and tenantcommon databases. Also changed the EXAMPLE1 tenant to use the tenantId as the database name, setting a pattern for other tenants. - Added basic tenant provisioning services and various multi-tenant improvements and fixes to improve multi-tenant capabilities. - Changed the way database time zone and locale work so they are the same for all users, either configured (@database-time-zone and @database-locale attributes on the moqui-conf.entity-facade element) or the Java system defaults. This is instead of using the user's time zone and locale because that is inconsistent and may get undesired values back, ie getting a different Timestamp object back because of a different user time zone. - Added screen.@tenants-allowed attribute to restrict which tenant(s) a screen may be used in. The tools application is now restricted to the DEFAULT tenant using this attribute in Tools.xml. - Changed Data Document _index field to be tenantId + "__" + DataDocument.indexName instead of just DataDocument.indexName to use a separate set of indexes for each tenant. - Scheduled service jobs (including async) are now authorized before the job is scheduled, and when the username/userId is passed through does a no password authc for that user and turns off authz for the service call; this is a mechanism for handling service calls outside the main flow and still maintaining security. - Changed the ArtifactHit/Bin artifactName for screen, screen-content, and transition to use their internal Resource Facade location (like component://...) instead of external URL Bug Fixes: - Changed commit() to rollback if commit fails to cleanup the transaction, can happen for example with TransactionCache has a DB error during pre-commit. - ArtifactHit count now skipped for UserAccount to avoid infinite recursion (shows as a StackOverflow exception). - EntityValue.containsKey() now returns true if there is a value for the key (even null), not just if it is a valid field name; this was inconvenient for various things, especially when treating EntityValue like a Map. - Fixed issue where Service ECA rules with @when of tx-commit or tx-rollback were never run. - Fixed issue with primary sequenced ID where cached current bank was shared among tenants even though DB values were separate, now cached current bank is also separate. - Fixed GitHub issue #26 where the Calendar used for setting Date/etc values was not valid because the cached Calendar object in UserFacadeImpl was set in a query before getting the UserAccount, and not reset by getUserAccount() (ie calling clearPerUserValues()). - Changed Quartz jobs (async and scheduled service calls) to run in the tenant they were initiated in instead of always in the DEFAULT tenant - Fixed issue with setBlob and the Postgres JDBC driver (GitHub issue #28), similar to pull request #29. - Fixed issue where SubscreensItem records with a userGroupId were filtered for the user active when the screen is first loaded as opposed to the user active each time the screen is rendered. - Fixed issue where TransactionCache was ignored for entities with no table in the database, for OrientDB datasource, and in general for the EntityListIteratorWrapper object. =========================================================================== Release 1.4.0 - 21 Mar 2014 =========================================================================== Moqui Framework 1.4.0 is a major new feature and bug fix release. Significant new features include: incorporating the Metis Admin Template, adding Twitter Bootstrap and updating jQuery/jQueryUI, added Bitronix transaction manager and pluggable JTA implementation support, added JBoss KIE and Drools with framework and component knowledge base support, Markdown support, JSON-RPC improvements, data loading improvements to support CSV files and calling services to load data, a Quartz Scheduler history in the DB and a Quartz persistence implementation, and services to clean Quartz history as well as Moqui artifact hit and hit bin histories. There are various bug fixes and stability improvements in this release for things like PostgreSQL support, input data handling, form-list and general pagination, Tomcat and other Servlet container deployment, and email sending. This release is backward compatible with the previous release (1.3.2), though some configuration changes may be needed and custom HTML/JS may need to be updated for the new JS libraries and Metis Admin Template. New Features: - Added the Metis Admin Template version 2.1.3 (see https://github.com/onokumus/Bootstrap-Admin-Template); This includes an update to jQuery 2.0.3, Bootstrap 3.0.3, jQuery UI 1.10.3, and many other JS libraries. - Added Bitronix BTM 2.1.4 as alternative to Atomikos - Added JBoss KIE and Drools libraries (version 6.0.0.Final) and Moqui API additions for getting a KieContext, plus Moqui automatically loads and builds component kie directories when present - Added Markdown4J 2.2 - Added Apache Commons CSV 1.0-SNAPSHOT 20140122 - Updated Apache HttpCore to 4.3.1, HttpClient to 4.3.2, Commons Logging to 1.1.3, Commons Codec to 1.6 - Updated Apache Lucene to 4.6.1, ehcache to 2.8.1, ElasticSearch to 1.0.1, Groovy to 2.2.2 - Updated Winstone to 1.0.5 (note this is very different from 0.9.10) - Added ISO 8601 date/time parsing as another default in L10nFacade - Added transition.@read-only attribute to skip XSRF check for insecure parameters when the transition does not modify data, and when data is not too sensitive - Added transition.parameter sub-elements to declare additional parameters for a transition, just like and in addition to the screen parameters - Added Markdown wiki support for files with extensions .md and .markdown using Markdown4J, and .md.ftl or .markdown.ftl for FTL + Markdown - Added clean#ArtifactData service to remove ArtifactHit/Bin records older than a certain number of days (default 60), and a XML configured Quartz job with a trigger to run it every day at 2AM - Entity Facade - Enhanced EntityDataLoader to also call services, just use the service name (leave out hash (#)) instead of entity name for the XML element - Enhanced EntityDataLoader to support CSV files with the entity or service name on the first line, then a header line, then the data lines - The entity-find-one.@value-field attribute can now be an existing Map that is not an EntityValue and if so entity fields are added to the Map instead of assigning the find result to @value-field - Improved EntityFind and EntityList for cached pagination - Service Facade - Removed Dzhuvinov JSON-RPC jars (implemented internally now) - Improved and fixed JSON-RPC remote service client and auto server - Changed service.@validate=false to still apply defaults and type conversions for defined in-parameters, but not exclude undefined params or error on other validation errors - Added parameter.@default attribute which is like the @default-value attribute except that it is a field name or expression for the default field value. - Added SchedulerHistory and code to populate it on various Quartz Scheduler events, and scheduled service to clean up old records - Added EntityJobStore to do persistence for Quartz Scheduler through the Entity Facade instead of direct to DB for easier deployment and more consistent operation with other parts of Moqui Framework - Transaction Facade - Added transaction-facade.@use-transaction-cache attribute, defaults to true, set to false to disable the TransactionCache globally - Added new transaction-facade sub-elements transaction-jndi and transaction-internal instead of single transaction-factory; transaction-internal has a class attribute to specify an implementation of the TransactionInternal interface to init/destroy the JTA impl - TransactionFacade now has active Synchronization registry like the active XAResource registry per transaction that existed before - Moved XAResource tools to Synchronization: TransactionCache, OrientDB tx handler, ServiceCallSpecial.registerOnCommit() and registerOnRollback(), Service ECA rule tx-commit and tx-rollback, EntityDataFeed Bug Fixes: - Due to some quirks in Shiro ehcache support it is disabled by default; it is still supported for use in distributed environments with shared auth cache (see shiro.ini for details) - Fixed issue with entity-condition in a view-entity when the econdition value matched a localized string different from the original value - Fixed issue with form-single and form-list.@transition when it matches a localized string (especially on MySQL or other DBs with case insensitive string matching), now only expands transition value if it contains a "${" - Fixed not-like entity condition operator which was treated as like - Fixed bug in EntityFind.searchFormInputs using ec.web.parameters instead of context; parameters are added to the context and other things may be too before this is called, so best to just use the context - Changed data stored on login to be done in separate transactions so that the records aren't locked for the full surrounding tx preventing the same user from auth for other transactions - Fixed issue with runtime/db directory not being included in gradle addRuntime and ant add-runtime, caused Derby to do funny things and OrientDB to not run at all under Tomcat and other external containers - Fixed issue with Logger initializing before moqui.runtime is set when running under external servlet containers like Tomcat - Fixed issue with DbResourceReference.putStream which tried to pass an InputStream to the JDBC driver, which isn't likely to be handled; now reads from the stream to a byte[] and wraps in a SerialBlob - Fixed issue when startup-add-missing is true but runtime-add-missing is false it would not really check and add missing on startup - Improvements to DB meta data handling for databases like Postgres that default to lower-case table, column, and foreign names - Fixed issue with sri.getFieldValuePlainString() calling toString on BigDecimal objects as BigDecimal.toString() uses scientific notation by default and aside from being annoying the parser doesn't handle it and treats things like 100 represented as 1E2 as 1 - Fixed issue with iterate over a Map when key attribute is set where the key and value were switched in the specified field names - Links (including URL parameter and hidden form) now handle Timestamp and BigDecimal the same as hidden form fields. This resolves issues with time zones for Timestamps, and with number parsing for BigDecimals. - Fixed issues with transition path-parameter when screen has no actions where transition was not removed from the path name list and path, screen, and transition parameters were not expanded for response parameters - Fixed issue in sendEmailTemplate.groovy where webappName was passed into the screen render for the HTML for the email, but not the plain text - Fixed issues related to entity-find.@cache attribute used inconsistently in generated code, and more generally with filtering and pagination when using both entity-find.@cache=true and entity-find.search-form-inputs, especially along with entity-find.date-filter. =========================================================================== Release 1.3.2 - 20 Nov 2013 =========================================================================== Moqui Framework 1.3.2 is a minor new feature and bug fix release. The main new feature is a write-through per-transaction cache that effectively simulates the database for the scope of the transaction and does all DB updates with a single connection just before commit. This transaction cache is enabled on service definitions using the cache and force-cache options for the service.@transaction attribute. With this in place various Mantle services now run 2-3 times as fast with results validated by extensive automated tests. Another set of new features covers internal profiling for artifact execution (entities, services, screens, transitions, etc). There are various forms of output available including a full artifact call tree with times, a consolidated tree to see own and total for artifacts in context, and a hot spot list by own or total time. This is similar to Java-level profiling tools but focuses on business level artifacts and with a low overhead gathers data always but only generates reports when needed. OrientDB is now included in the framework by default instead of only in an addon component as before. This is useful as a general graph and document database and as an alternative through the Entity Facade for high-write entities like ArtifactHit. New Features: - Updated Apache Camel to 2.12.1, Ehcache to 2.7.5, Groovy to 2.1.9, Quartz Scheduler to 2.2.1, SLF4J to 1.6.6, Shiro to 1.2.2, Spock to 0.7 - Updated ElasticSearch to 0.90.7 and Lucene to 4.5.1 - OrientDB is now included in the framework by default instead of only in an addon component to have an embedded document and graph NoSQL database; this and other graph databases can be used through the Blueprint and Gremlin APIs - Various changes to EntityDatasourceFactory, EntityFindBase, etc to better support other non-JDBC data sources like OrientDB - Implemented write-through per-transaction cache (TransactionCache) enabled through the service.@transaction attribute cache and force-cache options or through direct initialization; this is a pretty big new feature that significantly improves performance of various types of services, but has certain limitations as described in the JavaDoc notes in the TransactionCache class and code using it should be tested thoroughly - Added econdition.@or-null attribute to make the condition an or between the specified condition and null - Added entity.@allow-user-field attribute to specify when UserField defs are considered, for security and performance reasons - Added entity.@create-only attribute for immutable entities - Added eeca.@get-original-value attribute to get the original (db) value if run on update or delete and before the entity operation - Screen form-single forms automatically add a "_formMap" field to the context with the Map used for the form; useful for reused forms that may specify different form-single.@map values - XML Actions iterate generates _index and _hasNext fields - ArtifactFacade tracks artifact running time, keeps an hierarchical instead of flat history, and can print a tree of the history; can also create a consolidated tree across larger runs to see an overview of own and total time per artifact; can also create a hot spots list by own or total time per artifact to see which took the most time - Added gradle tasks to save the Derby databases and ElasticSearch data after a load (loadSave) and to clean out and reload the saved data (reloadSave) - Some improvements to error message logging and handling in data loader, ServiceTrigger, and set rollback only - When tables are created on the fly they are now only created for write operations, finds just return no results if table does not exist and do not create the table Bug Fixes: - Fixed issue in ListCondition with null list entries, and improved the factory method with condition List parameter when List has only one condition to just use that condition - Fixed issue in service input conversion treating empty values as nulls - Fixed some minor and rare Entity Facade errors as part of more extensive testing for TransactionCache and a code cleanup and consolidation effort =========================================================================== Release 1.3.1 - 20 Oct 2013 =========================================================================== Moqui Framework 1.3.1 is a minor new feature, bug fix, and performance enhancement release. New Features: - Performance improvements based on profiling (tested screens run around 1.3 to 2 times as fast) - form-list and section-iterate automatically add *_index and *_has_next context fields following the pattern used in Freemarker - formDisplayOnly parameter (or context value) to make the form render as display-only (read-only) - dynamic and static layouts - static layout uses entire browser width and is CSS based - dynamic layout uses jQuery Layout plugin and supports closing, resizing, fixed header/footer, separate scrolling left/right, etc - popup menus are in the header to save space and for easier layout - set action inside form field sub-elements and widget-template-include for parameterized widget-template definitions - XML Form pass through of matches (regexp) validation from service - Added ServiceTrigger entity to call a service when the record is created; useful for triggering data setup services on data load and so on - The loadData execution uses anonymous user for authc and allows any authz for services triggered on data load Bug Fixes: - Fixed extraneous close script tags in screen/form HTML output - Fixed right/east container-panel field name so size, etc settings apply - Fixed calls to startFormListRow that were missing new parameters added to the method; resolves SourceForce Bug #39 - Fixed issue with a form-list with header form in a dynamic-container; now updates within the containing div using the results of the form submit - Fixed issue with service name comparison when running SECA rules - Auto reverse relationships better support titles - DataDocument no longer includes null fields, empty Maps and Lists - Fixed issue with null oldStatusId and setting new statusChanged automatic fields in entity-auto service implementation - Fixed entity-find.search-form-inputs.@input-fields-map attribute, groovy generated left out quotes - Fixed NPE in EntityUserField code - Changed searchFormInputs to default to equals instead of contains; more efficient queries and works for numbers, dates, etc - Changed saved session messages and errors to be separate from MessageFacade ones so they still display but don't stop other services from running - Fixed EntityFacadeImpl.getAllEntityNames() to not return invalid entity names, caused problems with AuthScreen, etc after an attempt to use an entity with an invalid name - Fixed issue with Entity ECA rules where fields set to null were reset back to the value from the DB - Fixed issues with export with dependents including making sure all auto-reverse relationships are in place and properly handing relationships with titles when deferring export for fk dependency - Fixed issue where secondary sequenced ID did not preserve disableAuthz - Fixed issue with DENY record not stopping sub-screens access =========================================================================== Release 1.3.0 - 27 July 2013 =========================================================================== Moqui Framework 1.3.0 is a major new feature and bug fix release. The major new features include the EntityFacade Data Document, Data Feed, and Data Search (based on ElasticSearch) features, the User Notification Message feature, and various improvements to XML Screens and Forms. This release is backward compatible with Moqui Framework release 1.2.0 with the exception that the StatusValidChange entity is deprecated by the new StatusFlowTransition entity. When updating to Moqui 1.3.0 from 1.2.0 or earlier existing databases may need to be updated because the Entity Facade now uses full entity names (with the package included in the name) for everything. The SequenceValueItem.seqName may contain plain entity names (without package) that need to be changed to full entity names (with package). This can be done by adding records with the full entity name in the seqName field with the same value as the original record in seqNum. New Features: - Updated Gradle build files to work with Gradle 1.6 (may not work with earlier versions) - Updated Apache Camel to 2.11.1, Apache Commons Validator to 1.4.0, Apache Derby to, ehcache to 2.7.2, Freemarker to 2.3.20, Groovy to 2.1.6, Quartz Scheduler to 2.1.7 - Added ElasticSearch 0.90.2 and Lucene 4.3.1 ElasticSearch files are under runtime/elasticsearch and it is initialized and destroyed with the rest of the framework - With ElasticSearch, Lucene, and full ehcache instead of just core the size of Moqui Framework has grown from ~24MB to ~42MB - Both ElasticSearch and Camel can be disabled to not init automatically - Introduced StatusFlow, StatusFlowItem and StatusFlowTransition entities for improved status flow support. A StatusItem may be used in multiple flows, each flow having its own set of status items and transitions. - Entity Facade - Added EntityDynamicView.addRelationshipMember() method to easily add member-entity based on relationship definition - Added Entity Data Document feature configured by DataDocument* entities which produce a sort of view entity (built on the fly with EntityDynamicView); the actual data documents are nested Maps and Lists produced by the EntityFacade.getDataDocuments() method - Added Entity Data Feed feature configured by DataFeed* entities; a feed is associated with one or more DataDocuments that are pushed to a service or pulled through a method call; the first part implemented is a real-time push triggered by entity changes for entities that are part of associated DataDocuments and the document(s) produced and sent to the feed receive service when a transaction is successfully committed - Added index#DataFeedDocuments service to easily index all documents associated with a DataFeed within a date range - Added search#DataDocuments service which uses ElasticSearch; supports pagination and so on - Added Tool app screens for index, search, and export DataDocuments - Improved date/time and number parsing for String values passed to an entity, partly so that implicit entity-auto services are more usable - Changed to use full entity name (with package) in more places including the entity cache - XML Screen and Form - Added XML Form fields-not-referenced element to specify where to render the fields not explicitly referenced under the field-layout element - Small adjustment to transition parameter so that if explicitly defined as empty that will be used instead of defaulting to value from context or web parameters - Screen transition response plain URLs now assemble parameters using response parameter sub-elements - Improved form-list with form-list-column so that hidden fields are always rendered along with the form element - Added span with id for form-list cell display fields and classes on it for currency and field value Java classes (BigDecimal, Timestamp, etc) plus CSS to center numbers and right align currency amounts - Added XML Form field widget element auto-widget-service and auto-widget-entity to do the same thing as auto-fields-* except that they are applied to a single field for more granular control without a bunch of ignores - Added dynamic-dialog element to XML Screens; like the container-dialog element but loads the dialog contents from the server when opened - Added form-list.@paginate-always-show attribute, defaults to true; set to false to hide pagination control and row count when there is only one page of rows to display; SourceForge feature request #8 - Added widget-templates file and widget-template-include element under XML Form fields to include widget-templates for widget reuse - Added form-list.@skip-form element for use with plain tables that will have nothing to submit; in HTML leaves out form elements - Added dynamic-container element to easily setup a section of the screen that is loaded separately from the server for easy update - Added background-* attributes to form-single to submit the form in the background and optionally show a message on success and reload a dynamic-container by id - In HTML generation script tags spread throughout HTML are now consolidated into a single script tag at the end of the screen output - Added editable element like a label but when you click on it an edit box appears to allow editing of the single field (this uses the jeditable jquery plugin) - Added WebFacade.sendTextResponse() method to send plain text response - Added User NotificationMessage feature to send messages to users through active listeners or persist them to track receipt and handle delivery when the user is next available. The message is a JSON String (representing a Map). Custom listeners can be added as implementations of the NotificationMessageListener interface. Message pulling is also supported for things like message screens. Listeners may be created for delivery means such as WebSocket, email, etc. Bug Fixes: - Fixed URLs for Mantle UBPL links using active screen URL as the default base URL instead of the full URL of the current screen - Fixed issue where form-list-column and field-layout nodes in an extended screen modified the original node from the base screen - Fixed issue in entity-auto create where automatically set fromDate was not returned in the service result - Fixed issue in screens with a form-list and then a form-single where listEntryIndex bleeds over and results in a _?? to field IDs and such - Fixed issue with date/time parsing and formatting to more consistently user user time zone, avoids time discrepancies between input and display while leaving hidden fields as plain toString/etc - Fixed issue with date and time values going to and from the database when the current user has a time zone different from the system by passing a Calendar object with the user's time zone to the PreparedStatement and ResultSet methods for Date, Time, and Timestamp - Fixed issue with automatic case insensitive order by on non-String fields; now ignored automatically when not applicable - Fixed issue with hidden fields in form-list header-fields when rendered in HTML with the default macros where the title appeared even if all field types were hidden, and if @hide was set to true the hidden input would not be rendered - Fixed issue in XML Form when a field-row is under a field-group element where the field-row was ignored and the fields in the group were displayed twice - Fixed issue when making a condition with an empty Map, List, etc returns null instead of an invalid condition - Fixed issue with entity find one on a view-entity with no PK fields where no matter the conditions it was considered a full set of PK field constraints causing it to throw out the actual find constraints - Fixed issue with form-list formatting when the @multi=true attribute and form-list-column elements are both used in the same form - Fixed issue where IN and NOT IN did not add parenthesis if the value was not a Collection; also added splitting of String values used with IN and NOT IN by comma for convenience in specifying these lists of ID values - Fixed issues where sequenced values with a non-entity seqName threw an exception and increment by one didn't increment the bank, causing a duplicate key error from the database on insert - Fixed issue in Auto Screens where automatic links had wrong parameter name for the entity name (had entityName, now aen) - Fixed issue where if a standalone screen (or with lastStandalone set) has pre-actions the screens before it were not pushed to get authz setup; SourceForge Bug #30 - Fixed issue with display.@currency-unit-field attribute with numbers larger than 1000 because it used the BigDecimal String constructor to parse a String formatted with a comma thousands separator; the L10nFacade.formatCurrency() method now uses a proper locale-aware number parser to parse numbers, and the display FTL macro has been updated to use the field value object directly instead of changing it to a String and then parsing it back to format as currency; SourceForge Bug #31 - Fixed issue with two back-to-back form-list using skip-end on the first and skip-start on the second; now rows are simply appended as would be expected instead of multiple form-list-outer/etc elements - Fixed issue where view-entity.entity-condition.date-filter did not work with an empty @valid-date attribute - Fixed a few issues with EntityDynamicView (failure to get group name, some better error handling, etc) - Fixed issue with view-entity automatic trimming based on used fields where a member-entity with no used fields but that is needed to joing to another member-entity with used fields was not included - Fixed issue with tx-commit and tx-rollback parameter missing in method call to run service - Fixed bug in MoquiStart where Manifest was sometimes null causing a class not found exception =========================================================================== Release 1.2.0 - 30 Dec 2012 =========================================================================== Moqui Framework release 1.2.0 is a minor new feature release and a major quality improvement release. This release has undergone significantly more testing than previous releases because of a wider variety of functionality that has now been built and tested using the framework, and because of a unit testing effort (framework unit tests built using Spock). The new features include popup menus (using the new jQueryUI menu widget), dynamic-options in XML Form drop-downs with dependency on other fields, automatic optimization of queries on view-entities to old select member entities necessary, support for UUID generated primary keys, expanded JCR support and an Example Content screen, and a number of small improvements that generally make the framework easier to use and more reliable. There are some non-backward-compatible changes in this release including elimination of id-very-long from the data type dictionary (expanding the id and id-long types), change to database configuration of subscreens to be based on UserGroup instead of the individual UserAccount (this is a primary-key change and may require a database metadata update and data migration), and context isolation for service calls. This release includes: - Updated jQuery to 1.8.3 and jQuery UI to 1.9.2 - Updated Apache Camel to 2.10.1, Apache Derby to, Apache Jackrabbit to 2.5.2, Apache Shiro to 1.2.1, ehcache to 2.6.0, Groovy to 2.0.5, OWASP ESAPI to 2.0.1, Quartz Scheduler to 2.1.6, and WikiText to 1.8.0 (20121130) - Support for Spock specification and unit testing framework run with the gradle "test" task, and a few entity, service, user, and resource tests - XML Screens - Added popup type subscreens menu using new jQuery UI Menu widget to help compress header into single row of menus instead of layers of tabs - Moved JS file reference to webroot.xml instead of in the theme; all themes need them, and they are more closely related to HTML generated - Added subscreens.always-use-full-path attribute to use the full path in menus and such instead of minimal path; helpful for wiki and other screens that use relative URLs that are not based on the screen path - More support for configuring case-insensitive order-by - Added dynamic-options for drop-down to get options from a server request via AJAX request and can depend on other field(s) to use as parameters and triggers for updating options on change, including example in the EditExample screen - Added text-line.@format attribute like display.@format - Field values are not automatically converted to strings before going to the FTL file for more control over formatting - Added screen.always-actions element with actions that will run whenever the screen is in the path, whether rendered or not, and before both rendering screens and running transitions - After login and other screen-last redirects parameters declared on the screen are now included in the URL and not just in the session - Service Facade - Inline and script services can leave out parameter values in the context and they will be picked up, instead of setting explicitly in result Map - When auto-parameters has an entity-name specified the generated parameters will have entity-name and field-name attributes, and the auto-fields-service now looks for those to do better fields based on the entity field details - Entity Facade - Added datasource.@startup-add-missing option; set to true to check tables for all entities in the database on startup and create missing ones - Added database.@use-schema-for-all option; set to true to include the schema name for non-table meta data (constraints, indexes, etc) - Entity find on a view-entity now automatically determines which member-entities to join in based on the fields selected, in order by, and in conditions; with this in place the need for DynamicViewEntity is minimal because you can just select the relevant fields and not worry about tables being joined in to the query that are not needed; this makes it much easier to write queries that will run well on large databases - Support for java.util.UUID sequenced primary IDs; can be configured per-entity and/or per-datasource - Added eeca.@get-entire-entity attribute to make sure we have the entire record and not just PK fields before doing update and delete ops - Improved handling and options for binary/blob fields - Resource Facade - ExampleContent entity and corresponding screen that supports uploading and downloading JCR content - Support for username and password for remote JCR repository access - Added ResourceReference.findChildFile() method to replace the code used only for subscreen references, expand that functionality and make it reusable for wiki content, etc - Added methods to ResourceReference for writing to the resource - Wiki template renderer gets linkBaseUrl from ScreenRender - Added DbResourceReference and the DbResource/File entities to have a filesystem like data store in the database and accessed through the Resource Facade like any other (file, jcr/content, etc) - Fleshed out ValidationError functionality including display in apps.xml and considering the ec.message.validationErrors list for storing error details in session between redirects, and changed entity and service validation to add ValidationErrors instead of plain error Strings - Added MessageFacade.hasError() method to check for error messages or validation errors, and more reliably handle future forms of errors - Screen in Tools app for SQL Query Run/View - Improved classpath overrides for configuration and such in the runtime/classes directory for both add-runtime/addRuntime and executable WAR file deployment approaches - EntityCondition has all JoinOperator and ComparisonOperator vales in it for convenience Non-backward-compatible changes: - Removed id-very-long entity field type and increased default length of id type to 40 and id-long type to 255. - Changed *SubscreensItem.userId* to *userGroupId* for greater flexibility setting up subscreen structures and menus -- this is consistent with how other database-driven artifacts are structured -- to have a record apply to all users use the ALL_USERS userGroupId that all users are automatically a member of -- for migrating other data a user will have to be a member of a group and that group can be a single-user group or you can simplify existing data by consolidating users into groups that have the same subscreens - Local service calls (inline, java, and script) now run with an isolated context so that fields from whatever called the service are not available in the service (which would cause things to work when they really shouldn't and wouldn't work if it was called remotely) -- make sure to retest all service calls as there could be hidden bugs where a service worked because whatever called it had certain fields Bug Fixes: - Fixed bug where secondary sequenced ID (setSequencedIdSecondary() method) was not finding IDs of existing records causing conflicting IDs to be generated - Fixed bug with EntityFindBase.updateAll() to not use EntityListIterator as it caused problems trying to update records with the ResultSet open - Added support for @confirmation attribute for hidden-form type links - Fixed issue where transition.path-parameter values were not making it into the context since parameters were already added to the context - Fixed issue in Data View screen with related entities using the full entity name (name with package) - Updated startup in embedded mode to put jar files in a local temporary directory and build files to delete it just in case it doesn't get cleaned up on exit; should solve problem with dirty exit leaving temp files in the OS temporary file location which can be hard to find - Fixed JCR repository connection, using RMI instead of DavEx by default (requires fewer jars for client while retaining full functionality) - Fixed repository name and content path reference for JCR content in the ContentResourceReference class - Fixed file upload temporary file being deleted before being accessed/used - Fixed link with link-type=hidden-form within a form-single to not produce HTML with nested form elements - Fixed anonymous-all and anonymous-view authenticate options for services and screens to login as the _NA_ user so the called services requiring authentication and permission will run as expected - Fixed display.@currency-unit-field attribute handling - Fixed XML Actions filter-map-list operation, wasn't quoting field names - Fixed bug where authorization failures were getting logged but not throwing an exception to stop operations - Fixed issue where the root screen was not added to the screenPathDefList causing incorrect push on the artifact facade's stack - Fixed issue where the last statement of XML Actions might have been unintentionally considered to be the return/result Map - Fixed issue with multi (multi-row) service calls where parameters shared between rows caused an attempt to process an additional non-existent row - Changed screen transition transaction handling to rollback on error - Fixed phantom parameter issue where declared parameters got a null value in the parameters to a service even if no null was passed in - Changed the ContextStack.containsKey() to not always return true and added ContextBinding.java which extends groovy.lang.Binding and is used for all Groovy script running to do the same thing without all the side-effects; this fixes a number of bugs - User login now works outside a web context - Fixed authz and tx issues with user preferences - Fixed issue with LocalizedEntityField because the code was still looking for the basic entity name and not the full entity name - Fixed issue with parsing locale from the database to include separate language and country codes (was ignoring the country) - Fixed bug on ServiceRun screen where parameters were not getting passed - Fixed bug where group-by clause was missing on EntityFind.one() calls - Fixed issues with ResourceReference directory listings where filenames have spaces in them - Fixed bug in service parameter text-length.@max checking - Fixed bug where a cached one query on non-PK fields with no result would not be automatically cleared - Fixed bug where request to a rile resource under a screen that requires authc would result in a redirect to the file resource - Fixed bug in UrlResourceReference with cached exists not picking up created files; now only uses cached exists if it is true - Fixed handling of transition actions (or service-call) output where a Map was pushed on the ContextStack and then popped, eliminating the output from the actions - Fixed object formatting in XML Screen/Form output, now done in a groovy method instead of with ?string in FTL which produced undesirable results in many scenarios =========================================================================== Release 1.1.1 - 22 Sep 2012 =========================================================================== The 1.1.1 release of Moqui Framework is primarily a bug fix release. While a few issues have been fixed the most important one for those just trying Moqui is the explicit sorting of files by name during data loading which addresses an issue on Linux servers where the files in a directory listing through the Java File API can come back in any order. Minor new features include DB configured User Fields on entities, host name based tenant selection, and an easier way to specify default themes. This release includes: - User Field support for transparent user-defined fields with a definition in the database (using the UserField entity) and values for the fields isolated to groups of users stored in a separate table (using the UserFieldValue entity) - Option to specify a default tenantId for a given host name (request.getServerName()) in the database, using the TenantHostDefault entity for deployment of tenants with a virtual host approach - Can now specify the default screenThemeId for a ScreenThemeType Enumeration record using the Enumeration.enumCode field Bug Fixes: - fixed data file load order to explicitly sort files in data directories alpha-numerically; on some systems this is the way they came back in directory listings but not all, causing inconsistent behavior without this explicit sorting (symptom is FK errors in data load) - fixed incorrect link paths for ArtifactHitBins and ArtifactSummary PDFs - when no transaction is in place using current system time for the automatically populated lastUpdateStamp field - changed SpeedTest.xml screen to run in a transaction - fixed issue in Auto Screens where the entityName and detailEntityName parameters were conflicting with field names on certain entities - fixed class cast exception for form-list when using the auto-fields-entity element with @field-type=find-display - fixed and improved screen menu title defaults, especially for subscreens added by subdirectory files - fixed issue with isPermitted() call when determining if screens with require-authentication=false should be included in the menu; they were showing an error and not getting added to the menu but now they do get added because no authz is necessary to access them =========================================================================== Release 1.1.0 - 22 July 2012 =========================================================================== Version 1.1.0 includes various bug fixes and library updates. It is also a minor new feature release with added functionality for anonymous authz, enhanced JSON and REST web service support, XML Form extension with database records (DbForm* entities) for all users or particular users, and an Apache Camel integration with Camel running embedded. This version also replaces the only LGPL library (Restone XML-RPC) in Moqui Framework with an Apache licensed library (Apache XML-RPC). This makes Moqui compatible with licensing requirements for projects that are part of the Apache Software Foundation (including Apache OFBiz). This release includes: - Updated *.gradle build files for the recently released Gradle 1.0 - Added configuration for MS SQL Server database - Replaced Redstone XML-RPC library with Apache XML-RPC to eliminate the LGPL library so that Moqui can be used in Apache and similarly licensed projects (including Apache OFBiz) - Updated Apache Derby to, Apache Jackrabbit to 2.4.1, Apache Log4J to 1.2.17, Apache Shiro to 1.2.0, Atomikos to 3.8.0, ehcache to 2.5.2, FreeMarker to 2.3.19, Groovy to 2.0.0, Quartz Scheduler to 2.1.5, SLF4J to 1.6.5 - Updated jQuery to 1.7.2, jQuery UI to 1.8.21, Validate to 1.9.0, and Timepicker to 1.0.0 - Tested with latest version of Apache Tomcat (7.0.27) - Methods on ArtifactExecutionFacade and options on the authenticate attribute on the service definition and the require-authentication on the screen definition to make the current artifact anonymously authorized - Web Facade - JSON representation of a Map sent in an HTTP Request body is treated as additional request parameters (must have a header of "Content-Type: application/json") - If auth* parameters are passed in a JSON body, multi-part body parameters, or in body parameters when there are no URL parameters (query string), then automatically logs in user (similar to behavior of HTTP Basic Authorization with the Authorization header) - Based on the various new features for REST, JSON, and better support of Web standards, added examples of the use of screen transitions for JSON over REST services; see the ExampleApp.xml file - Screen Facade - Added support for declared path-parameters in the URL path under a transition (especially useful for simulating a resource at a URL) - Implemented initial version of DbForm feature with support for extending forms defined in XML Screen files; includes example extending the UpdateExample form on the EditExample screen; for details see the DbForm and related entities, and the example in the ExampleTypeData.xml - Service Facade - Embedded Apache Camel, currently used in the ServiceFacade to transport service calls using many different standards, plus Camel routing for more flexible system integration - CamelServiceRunner so that Moqui services can just send a Camel message - Camel component, endpoint, and producer for receiving Moqui service calls through camel (with URI like "moquiservice:package.serviceName") - Example Moqui service that sends a Camel message, and example service that service calls through the Moqui Camel Endpoint (Producer) - Support for nested parameter elements in service definitions for Map and Node (groovy.util.Node) parameters; the main reason for Node support is for XML messages coming in such as the OAGIS ones to be handled directly by a service (this is one part of Mantle) - Added option to service-call tag to send result as a JSON response using the WebFacade.sendJsonResponse() method - Service database-driven semaphores to avoid multiple instances of the same service running at the same time - Entity Facade - View entity member-entity.entity-condition for conditions on joins - View entity alias.complex-alias implemented for formulas in queries - Added "cursor" option for the database.@offset-style attribute for databases that do not support the offset/limit or fetch syntax variations; using this option will result in an EntityListIterator being used instead of letting the database handle the partial results - Added EntityDatasourceFactory interface and object-factory attribute to the entity-facade.datasource element in the moqui-conf XML file; the default implementation is for JDBC/SQL databases, and other implementations can be used for other data sources - Refactored EntityValueImpl and EntityFindImpl to create abstract base classes that can be extended to more easily create custom datasource interfaces for the Entity Facade - There is an add-on component that uses this custom datasource facility to add support for OrientDB, and other NoSQL and alternative datasource interfaces will be added as add-ons over time Bug Fixes: - Fixed bug in script template for XML Actions calling a script at a location (was missing quotes around the location) - Fixed bug where XML Actions and groovy script locations were not being cleaned before using as class names for groovy compiled classes - Fixed Entity Audit Log bug where fields not set were considered null and therefore were considered changed to null and logged as such - Fixed NPE when calling update() on an EntityValueImpl with no changes - Fixed NPE when there is an error in a request and the web.parameters, web.requestAttributes, and web.requestParameters have not been used - Fixed authz issue when calling service with auth* parameters (UserAccount, Username, Password, and TenantId) so that login is done before the first authz check to avoid guaranteed failure - Fixed WebFacade.sendJsonResponse() to return ec.messages.errors if there are errors instead of ignoring them - Fixed issue in L10nFacadeImpl (also used for service parameter automatic type conversions) where Time and Timestamp parsing required sub-second value; now parses strings without sub-seconds as well - Fixed bug where service definition was not found if it had no noun attribute even if service name matched the verb - Fixed invalid HTML with a form elements between the table and td elements by using styled div elements and the "display: table*" CSS attributes =========================================================================== Release 1.0.1 - 31 December 2011 =========================================================================== Version 1.0.1 is primarily a maintenance and bug fix release. The few new features are mostly extensions to exist
