Version 1.2 is out now! Version 1.2 contains only changes or fixes to APT. We fixed a bug (#1770034), fixed the FormSender std request handler to properly send POST'd request parameters and modified sample app to demonstrate this. Most important news in this release is the posibility to do cross-domain JSON-P AJAX requests using a jsonp attribute in the ajax-config's tag. See the sample application for a demo.

The new site is live!

April 24, 2007

Version 1.1 final is now available. No changes from 1.1 beta 1, but now you can feel all warm and fuzzy about not having to use a beta build :)

April 8, 2007

Version 1.1 beta 1 is now available. This release includes a couple of new features and a couple of bug fixes, a good mixture of both. Get it while it's hot :)

January 1, 2007

The first GA release, version 1.0, is in the books! Grab it now! A minor change to the build script (that doesn't matter to anyone but the release manager anyway) and a fix to APT's timer tag, and that's it, otherwise it's just a straight, stable release. If you've been holding back from using JWP until this milestone, well, there you are, have at it!

Beta 7 is out! Changes include some bug fixes, a new (simple) javascript compression filter and an important change in scope use: APT now uses request scope instead of page scope. This to satisfy the users of the tag files where every tag file has is own page scope.

July 23, 2006

Beta 6 is out, go get it now! Changes include a fix for the APT sampleapp page (was misconfigured in beta5, so the demo didn't show the ability to use APT in an AJAX response properly), the ability to have multiple config files in chain, another fix for APT where config file streams weren't being properly closed, and all FindBugs complaints that were legitimate have been addressed.

July 3, 2006

In celebration of freedom and independance, a day early anyway, beta 5 is now unleashed! By far the biggest news here is that the AjaxParta Taglib (APT), formerly AjaxTags, is almost entirely a complete rewrite. This addresses nearly every request people had for functionality, along with some other things we came up with on our own. If you need to do AJAX in as simple and yet powerful a fashion as possible, now is the time to take a hard look at APT! There's some other stuff in there as well of course, as always, check out the release notes. Enjoy!

February 26, 2006

Beta 4 now available. This release is devoted almost entirely to AjaxTags enhancements. We have addressed a number of commonly-asked questions and expanded the functionality a fair bit. Also contains some new functionality in the JSTags taglib and some other places.

January 23, 2006

Beta 3 has been released! Another significant release, including: fixed an undefined behavior in AjaxTags with regard to target URLs, the ability to have multiple ajax-config files and the ability to have static parameters in target URLs for AjaxTags, the CoR implementation can now read config files in JARs, added JSDigester to the JSTags taglib (this is a client-side implementation of Commons Digester), added the popup calender widget to UIWidgets and dealt with some bugs, and a bunch of other stuff!

January 8, 2006

The first release of the New Year is here, beta 2! This has a pretty long list of changes and additions, including some new AjaxTags functionality, a new servlet, a new filter and some important fixes. Happy New Year!

December 18, 2005

Java Web Parts is now officially a beta release! Woo-hoo! This version includes a couple of bug fixes as well as a few new additions (mostly in AjaxTags).

December 5, 2005

A new AjaxTags RequestHandler, a handy new method in RequestHelpers and some other stuff.

November 26, 2005

v.14 released. It's been nearly a month since the last release, and while there aren't a large number of changes in this release, they are fairly significant: multiple simultaneous AJAX events with AjaxTags are now supported, and the DependencyFilter now allows you to set a path on each request-scoped dependency, so you can have your beans only created on the request paths you want them creaed on!
