Release Notes

The Habanero team have been very busy for the last two months, focusing heavily on a rewrite of Firestarter as we enhance Habanero as a framework for rapid agile development of enterprise applications.

Code Generation
The groundwork has now been laid for a full code generation toolkit to complement Habanero application development. Version 2.1 includes the first phase of this release, the once-off code generation of standard forms from templates. While Habanero generates much of the grid and form content at runtime, these templates will assist in laying out the controls for a working application and also in illustrating how to take advantage of Habanero UI construction.

Impress Your Clients
One great advantage of this new feature is that you could take your laptop to a client interview and generate a working application with data access and visual screens in minutes. What is also impressive is the ability to generate for both desktop and web in the same application.

R.I.P. PanelFactory
The new PanelBuilder replaces the deprecated PanelFactory (still available for existing applications). Rewritten with peer-programmed, test-driven development, PanelBuilder provides more robust and extensible runtime generation of the controls on a form for editing a single BusinessObject. Included is PanelInfo and FieldInfo, which give the developer access to these controls for further customisation.

Download from the Official Site
As ever, the fresh release includes a number of smaller improvements and bug fixes. The full download is available at the official Habanero website (http://www.chillisoft.co.za/habanero), and includes source code, the sample project and a full copy of the online tutorial.
