OpenXava 7.0.6 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:

  • Embedded Tomcat used in development upgraded to 9.0.71.
  • Groovy upgraded to 4.0.8.
  • Driver version in doc and new projects upgraded for MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Firebird.

Documentation improvements

We have been working to improve documentation:

  • Documentation about using standard Eclipse with OpenXava updated to work with OpenXava 7 and Maven. 
  • Appendix A of course about architecture and philosophy updated to version 7. 

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 7.0.6 tag.
