  • submit to reddit
The Joget team is pleased to announce that the stable version of Joget Workflow v4  (4.0.2) is now released. Joget Workflow is an open source platform to easily build enterprise web apps for cloud and mobile.
  • Build full-fledged apps e.g. CRM, HR, Healthcare, etc
  • Drag and drop forms, lists, UI
  • Add workflow to automate processes
  • Extend via plugins
  • Apps are mobile optimized and cloud ready
  • Download ready made apps from the Joget Marketplace
As an application platform, Joget Workflow v4 is a notable enhancement on previous versions. There is much greater emphasis on usability, mobility and security. 



App Center
  • Create a simple database-driven app, to a complex approval process, or even a full-fledged solution (e.g. CRM) which incorporates workflow, data management and reporting.
  • Published apps are presented in a grid menu of app icons. Using the search box, apps can be quickly found and launched. Users will only see apps that they are allowed to access. 

Mobile Userview
  • Join the mobile revolution and enable your customers, employees and users to access your apps on the go.
  • Apps are automatically optimized for mobile devices (smartphones and tablets), with a mobile user experience including look and feel, page transitions, offline capabilities, etc. 

Admin Bar and Front-End Editing
  • Improve app maintainability with the new Admin Bar.
  • Quick Edit mode can be enabled to allow administrators and designers to identify and modify forms, lists and pages directly from the front-end user interface.
  • The Admin Bar also allows for quick access to design and monitor apps, setup users and manage system settings. 

App Generator
  • Greatly reduce the time to market for your apps.
  • The App Generator greatly accelerates the building of an app by allowing administrators to rapidly generate a base app directly from a form. It can generate lists, CRUD (create-read-update-delete) pages and an approval process. 

Simplified Interface
  • Improved overall simplicity and usability.
  • App design interface has been simplified to improve usability. In property editor dialogs, advanced options are now hidden by default. 

  • Hash variables, which provide greater flexibility and freedom in accessing useful app information, now comes with auto-complete support using the CTRL-# key. 

  • Works with v3 apps
  • v4 is designed to be backward compatible with v3, so apps built on v3 will run as well. For users who are already familiar with v3, the previous Web Console is still available.
Security Enhancements
  • Password Policies 
    • Password format
    • Initial password method
    • Validity period
    • Reuse policy
    • Timeout management
    • Lockout mechanism
  • Password Storage 
    • Enhanced password encryption
    • Credentials Management
    • Password creation
    • Changing password
    • Forgot password feature
  • Support for simultaneous internal and external Directory Managers
  • Enhanced security for API and support for basic authentication
