OpenXava is a productive way for creating business AJAX applications with Java. With OpenXava you only need to write domain classes (simple Java or Groovy classes annotated with JPA) to get an application ready for production.

OpenXava 4.0.1 has been released just now. Download and try it.

This is a maintenance released with many bug fixes, however it has some interesting new features, such as:

  • New callback methods that allow to use JPA inside them: @PreCreate, @PostCreate and @PreDelete.
  • In conditions if you put a model name inside ${ } it is changed by table name.
  • New after-each-request option for <action/> in controllers.xml.
  • IForwardAction allows to forward to javascript code, using javascript: as prefix.
  • New listeners.xml in WEB-INF for defining listeners.

Look at the changelog for the complete list.

The OpenXava team invite you to download and try this new OpenXava version.

Also, you can have a look at the demos, or learn more visiting www.openxava.org.
