New Site Layout

As you can see we've refreshed the web site, and tried to make its navigation more orientated around the structure of the Java itself (as you can see from the new navigation bar). We've also removed the frames, and are now using PPWizard for building the site from HTML templates.

New Jaffa Release - v1.2.0

We've had the code for v1.2 in the CVS repository now for several months, and have been using it on various projects. Since it has held up well and the bugs are at a minimum, we have decided to Tag it and put it out as an official release. As with all open source projects, the main delay in the release is documentation, and in this case we've finally got round to writing the Release Notes for this version.

The main highlights of this release are

  • Extended database support, we've now tested the persistence layer with Oracle 8i/9i, MS SQL Server 2000, MySQL, and PostgreSQL.
  • Our widgets have been overhauled to support not only IE v5.5 and 6.0, but now we can support Netscape 7.x, and Mozilla 1.3.x
  • We have added a new Rules Engine facility that provided endless validation for the Domain Objects
  • Maintenance Pattern and Application Generator to build a complete CRUD app from a Domain Model
  • Multiple Locale Support for the widgets, including locale specific format and syntax patterns
  • See the release notes for more details...
New Tag Library User Guide

The Tag Library which is used for all the presentation widgets is a significant part of Jaffa. We have spent some time trying to make a comprehensive reference site to help developer use these JSP tags.

Please enjoy the new site and release, as always we welcome feedback.
