OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities

Just as we have done with OpenXava, we have adapted the code of XavaPro to comply with the 10 OWASP vulnerabilities. XavaPro passes the ZAP scanner at 100%. 

To make your XavaPro application comply with OWASP, follow the instructions in the OpenXava documentation for OWASP.

A user can only be identified once

This is a quite popular request that you have been demanding for years, and it has finally arrived. The problem that has sometimes been raised in discussions on this topic is how to deal with it if the user has not logged out on their previous device, because they simply closed the browser without clicking on log out, for example, and tries to log in again shortly from another device. The solution we have chosen is to close the previous session at the moment the user identifies again. In this way, the user’s session never gets blocked and we ensure that the same user cannot be identified more than once at the same time.

That is, if now a user signs in as ‘john’ in the XavaPro application and then another user also signs in as ‘john’, the session of the first user is invalidated.

Navigation to the root folder in one stroke

XavaPro allows you to classify modules into folders and subfolders in the left menu. You have always been able to navigate to any folder and back to the parent folder. However, when you were in a subfolder that was too deep, it was too tedious to go back parent by parent, until you reached the root folder. In version 7.3, we have solved this with a little home icon that allows you to go directly to the root folder:

Record count in mobile UI

We have added a record count to the list in the mobile interface, just as there is in the desktop version. In the case of the mobile interface, the number of records simply appears in parentheses in the header.

For example, in this case we have 21 customers, that’s why a (21) is shown in the header:
