Advanced options

Xafari Monitoring Active Users

Using the new version of the XAS v2 configurator, you can track users who are using the application at the current time. You can do this selecting the "Active Users" navigation item in the "Monitoring" group.

Xafari Application Support

The new version of the XAS v2 configurator will use the Application Hosts concept and will support all applications developed with this concept. Now you can start the configurator using the command line keys, as well as using the interactive menu.

Editing objects with statuses

Using the provider IStatusSupport, the user can create objects with status support ("Published", "Archive" or "Draft"). Objects with the statuses "Published" and "Archive" will be closed from editing, however, in the old version the object could be edited by dragging it onto the fields onto the form of another object. In the new version, this function will be fixed - in new version editing objects with certain statuses will be prohibited on all Details forms.

Extending the application model

A new concept of extending the application model for Xafari components will be implemented. For all extensions of the Xafari model, we are going to implement an automatic converter.

AggregatedActions nodes in the model will be moved.

The AggregatedActions node is deprecated, so we will no longer use it, and the slave nodes will be moved to the corresponding ActionDesign \ Actions nodes.

Application Hosts

  • The possibility of flexible management of the logging system will be added.
  • We are going to add the ability to register additional contexts.

Numbering

We are going to add support for expressions in the Numbering Template and Key Template. To support previous versions, the ObjectFormatter mode will be preserved.

Extension of the model for ServiceCfgObject

The clarification of the wrapper class model type is necessary, if there is a need for the inheritance of classes derived from ServiceCfgObject, ServiceCfgObject during developing Cfg modules. IModelCfgOblect extension will be designed for these purposes.

Setting up the visualization of Business transactions

We are going to expand the IModelBusinessOperations and IModelBusinessOperation models so that you can customize the visualization of the process of executing the business transaction that is synchronously executed in the context of a long operation.

A number of problems are going to be fixed.
