Beehive 1.0.2 -- Release Notes

Noteworthy Changes

Changes from the last release that represent a fundamental behavior change or are not backward compatible.

  • Some PageFlowController and FlowController methods were changed... To improve application security, the public version of a few methods in PageFlowController and FlowController have been renamed so they aren't picked up as JavaBean properties from within JSP pages. See BEEHIVE-1069.
  • Session mutex and the HttpSessionMutexListener... An optional HttpSessionListener has been implemented to facilitate a design change to the way NetUI does user-wide locking. It will create a session-wide mutex object that can be used to serialize a change in the session.
  • Plug points for handling AJAX requests (.xhr) for the Tree and DivPanel in NetUI... The API changes include a new Chain of Responsibility (CoR) / command pattern for servicing AJAX requests. This is a new command handling infrastructure that can be used to handle requests to render markup or data to a client. At a high level, this is done by implementing command handler classes that are composed together using the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) pattern and including the commands in the NetUI configuration.
