OpenXava 7.3.2 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.


We have done some improvements:

  • New Maven archetypes "openxava-master-detail-archetype" in English and Spanish (-spanish).
  • Some new common use labels to be used in applications.

Upgraded libraries

We have upgraded the following third party libraries:

  • Commons Logging upgraded to 1.3.2.
  • Embedded Tomcat used in development upgraded to 9.0.89.
  • Driver version in doc and new projects upgraded for MySQL and Oracle.


We have been working to improve documentation:

  • First lesson of the new reporting course with JasperReports available in documentation with video.
  • Documentation about total properties in the view section of the reference guide improved with more examples.
  • New article in documentation that links to an example in GitHub to create a desktop standalone app. 

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 7.3.2 tag.

Bug fixes
