ajuby 0.4 release


We have released Ajuby 0.4. Please test drive and let us know how we can improve this further.

Would love to address specific problems rather than making a yet-another-framework. We are aiming to fill the gap between Rails (amazing !) and business application development by providing necessary glue services (domain objects, authentication, auditing, extensible ui etc).


There are some interesting features in this release:

  • New application data security layer, includes custom collection declaration for fine grained data sharing

  • Improved UI architecture

    • Navigation tabs, subtabs and link references

    • Generate navigation tabs dynamically, configurable and driven by yml file

    • new theme ‘sociallabs’ added

    • UI widgets (search, new, edit, list) for application actions

    • Integrated Dojo components. Enjoy Dojo user interface with Ajuby data access and authorization controls

  • Auditing support for tracking data access

  • Reports module based on Dojo

  • AjubyLogger for lightweight logging and console print as well

  • Enhanced configuration management using ajubyconfig.yml

    • Change properties dynamically, without restarting the application via control panel

    • Dynamic loading application themes/layout

    • Theme previews

  • Mashup ready with sample webservices using Google search example

  • Fixed many bugs, refer to bug list for more details.

As always thanks to all open source enthusiasts who contributed directly and indirectly to this release.
