OpenXava 7.0.1 released

This is a maintenance version with many bug fixes and some small improvements.

To update edit the pom.xml file in your project and change the value of the openxava.version property, in this way:


Then rebuild your project:

  • With OpenXava Studio:
    • Right mouse button in your project > Run As > Maven clean
    • Right mouse button in your project > Run As > Maven install
  • Or with command line: mvn clean package

Look at the migration instructions.

Upgraded libraries

We have upgraded the following third party libraries:

  • Hibernate upgraded to 5.6.11.
  • Hibernate Envers upgraded to 5.6.11.
  • Groovy upgraded to 4.0.5.
  • Jersey upgraded to 2.37.
  • Driver versions in doc and new projects upgraded for MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle and MS SQL Server.

Documentation improvements

We have been working to improve documentation and other learning material as videos:

  • Getting started guide using IntelliJ in English, Spanish and Chinese.
  • Getting started guide using Maven in English, Spanish and Chinese.
  • Video in Chinese for getting started guide. 
  • Lesson 26 of course translated to Chinese, so now the whole course is in Chinese.
  • Outdated documentation to deploy on Weblogic removed.
  • Documentation for IntelliJ updated to use Maven.
  • Improved Appendix D of course about testing with examples of HtmlUnit usage.

We release new docs and videos constantly, not waiting for the official release of the code. So you have been already using some of the above material, although all the above docs are in the GitHub under the 7.0.1 tag.
