Third Milestone of Spring Roo 1.1.0 With Incremental Database Reverse Engineering
The third milestone of Spring Roo 1.1.0 is now available.
New in this release, is incremental database reverse engineering, which means it is now possible to introspect an existing relational database and emit a series of JPA entities. All domain objects produced by Spring Roo 1.1.0 M3 will include automatic JSON-related methods, allowing users to bidirectionally convert between a JSON representation and an object. Content from 16 social media web sites can be added to a Spring MVC-based front end with a single Roo 1.1.0 M3 command. Supported social media sites, include YouTube, Google Maps and Twitter.
The integration with Google Web Toolkit (GWT,) means that Spring Roo 1.1.0 produces applications that use the newest features in GWT 2.1.0.M3, including relationship support under the RequestFactory infrastructure.
