English NGO helping Africa 

The English NGO Evidence for Development, part of the Walker Institute, are using OpenXava to create a data entry and reporting application to be used in the field in Africa. The application maintains data recorded in African villages. The data produces an economic model of the village. The model is used when weather, drought, war or other disasters place the villagers under threat.

The head of development for this project, David Brown, says that they chose OpenXava because:

  • Cloud or standalone deployment.
  • Open source code and ability to work with other open source products such as MySQL and Tomcat.
  • Uses a language taught in most Universities - Java.
  • Multiuser.
  • Multi-organization.
  • Robust.
  • A quorum of developers providing forum based support with paying for support as an option.
  • An agile approach to software development.

OpenXava 6.1 released

Traditionally in each new major version of OpenXava we upgrade all the libraries and drop support for old versions of servers, Java, etc. However, for version 6 we delivered a user-centric version and left out the traditional libraries upgrading. Therefore, we have done this upgrading for 6.1. So, version 6.1 is really a version 6.0 part 2. Mainly this new version drops Java 6 (and 7) support. This was indispensable to upgrade the third-party libraries given currently there is no libraries with Java 6 support. This means the we no longer support WebSphere 8, but also means the we can enjoy new useful features such as repeatable annotations, LocalDate or JPA 2.2.

We invite you to download it and upgrade your OpenXava applications. Look at the migration instructions.

An example of custom visual style

OpenXava 6 includes two visual themes, Terra and Light. But if you think that Light theme is too classic and Terra theme is too brown, or just you need to use the corporate visual style of your company or customer, don't worry. Creating a new style for OpenXava is easy. Have a look at the next video where a developer presents his OpenXava application. The audio is in Spanish, just ignore it and note the visual appearance.
