We are now working towards making zX fully open source. For now we are posting snapshot releases of demos using the framework.
Thanks for the interest that you have shown so far in our zX framework. Sorry for the delay we are currently working on our cummunity site and hope to launch shortly (watch www.zXFramework.org). From here you will be have access to sources, documentation, examples, patterns and much more.
We are working on a community site for the framework. And has also setup a site for commercial support at
A new document How to zX (https://zx.dev.java.net/files/documents/1685/5235/file_5235.dat?filename=How%20To%20zX%2edoc) has been uploaded. This is as up2date as I can get it. Will upload the latest release soon as well.
What to expect from us over the coming months:
<li><i>Persistance channels</i>. Now a BO is either not persisted (or you have to write your own) or persisted using the database. We are planning to add persistence channels: by default you get the database channel but you can associate a BO with any channel and you can add you own channel. For example: MQ series, SOAP, flat file, SWIFT gateway (Merva or so), legacy system interfaces, etc.
This means a pageflow can be build that (transparent to user and developer) gets most of its data from the database and some from more bespoke sources... read more
The following features will be made available through this site soon. If you cant wait: simply send mail to owner.
<li><i>Dynamic attribute values</i>. This allows you to define an expression in the entity definition for an attribute that is evaluated at run-time to yield a value (instead of retrieving it from a data source). Effectively this is another reason removed to have to refer to special implementation classes... read more
At the moment i am doing snapshot every week until there is a stable enable release for usage. And then i will be puttting together a release with installation documentation and a demo.
The framework project has begun, but it will be about 2 months or more before i can do a release as i am still setting up stuff and finallising things
