[ANN] AppFuse 1.9.1 Released

This release includes improvements and upgrades to Tapestry 4.0.1, WebWork 2.2.2, as well as support for using AppGen to reverse engineer database tables (using Middlegen). iBATIS is now supported by AppGen and a Create DAO tutorial has been put together for iBATIS. iBATIS and Middlegen support were provided by Bobby Diaz - thanks Bobby! Also, a big thanks goes to Mika Göckel for writing an XFire Tutorial and installer. To install and configure AppFuse for development, see the QuickStart Guide. Thanks to all the sponsors who have contributed products and free hosting to the AppFuse project.

To see how AppFuse works, please see the following demos (username: mraible, password: tomcat):

Comments and issues can be sent to the mailing list or posted to JIRA.

Getting a 404 on the Tapestry demo.

Looks like Tomcat needs to be restarted for all of your examples. I am getting a "The Tomcat server is not answering" error instead of the login.

Yep, I discovered a bug in the "install another framework" logic, so I'm rebuilding everything now - should be back up in 10-15 minutes. Downloads on java.net should be refreshed by 12:30 MST.

Nice work! I'm constantly amazed that you find the time to put all the work you do into appfuse and work and write and present, amazing!

I too am amazed how much Matt gets done. I don't think they are any secrets about how he does this. One has to work smart and hard... Or do you have any secrets, Matt ?

No secrets, except that Virtuas lets me work on AppFuse full-time during release weeks. Of course, they don't pay me to work 20-hour days. ;-)

When I run "ant test-all",I get error "E:\Downloads\testing\build.xml:550: taskdef A class needed by class com.canoo.webtest.ant.WebtestTask cannot be found: org/apache/tools/ant/UnsupportedElementException",Why?

You could try looking through lib/webtest-1263/webtestTaskdefs.properties. Comment out the lines that have tasks related to PDF, Excel, or in a "plugins" package.

Matt, I like how you switched to a surrogate key for the user entity for 1.9.1, but the user_role relationship is still tied to the username. Shouldn't this association use the user id (which should never change)?

Hmm, seems like you can ignore the comment above. Apparently I'm seeing things.

Thank you,Matt Raible. but I still get error "E:\Downloads\testing\build.xml:550: taskdef A class needed by class com.canoo.webtest.ant.WebtestTask cannot be found: org/apache/tools/ant/UnsupportedElementException",after I Comment out the lines that have tasks related to PDF, Excel, or in a "plugins" package. BTW,When using appGen generate code from a table,table name can not include underline("_") character.

searchfull - you're likely to get a faster response if you post your issues to the AppFuse mailing list. To subscribe, send a blank e-mail to users-subscribe@appfuse.dev.java.net. As far as the issue with AppGen and tables with underscores, I fixed that last night and refreshed the 1.9.1 downloads. Thanks for letting me know about this issue.

Download the appfuse-1.9.1-src I am still get error: When I run "ant test-all",I get error "E:\Downloads\testing\build.xml:550: taskdef A class needed by class com.canoo.webtest.ant.WebtestTask cannot be found: org/apache/tools/ant/UnsupportedElementException"...

I was also getting the "com.canoo.webtest.ant.WebtestTask cannot be found" error when running the test-all target when using ant from the command line. I was using an older version of ant, once I upgraded to 1.6.4 the problem was corrected.
