What’s New in GeneXus™ X Evolution 3?#
GeneXus now generates offline mobile apps, capable of synchronizing with a central server. You retain the ability to execute transactions in scenarios of limited or no internet connectivity, making this the ideal solution for apps serving scenarios such as point-of-sale (POS), inventory control, and distribution.
Smashing Mobile UX#
Improvements to the GeneXus SD generator make it easy to deliver on high UX/UI requirements, both for Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad) apps, while also including BlackBerry and Windows 8 (beta) support.
Responsive, Smooth Web#
Enhanced flexibility and improved user experience summarize our numerous upgrades for web application development. Crowned with responsive web design capabilities, Evolution 3 also includes support for web notifications, graceful degradation, Ajax, and Single-Page navigation for easier, faster SEO-friendly web applications. Regardless of screen size or resolution, we ensure that your apps perform flawlessly, every time.
Enterprise Web, Mobile Apps#
Enterprise software built in X Evolution 3 will boast faster response times and easier access control. Provide single sign-in security solutions using the built-in authentication and authorization module - the GeneXus Access Manager. Better yet, applications that make use of the Access Manager act as Identity Providers themselves, allowing users to access different applications, sites and apps with a single sign-in identity.
GeneXus Knowledge Bases can be partitioned into modules that make it easy to develop and maintain even the most complex IT Solutions. By breaking monolithic systems into manageable components, each member of your team can work, simultaneously, on a logically distinct application module.
Core Language Improvements#
The GeneXus core language has seen improvements in the expressiveness and power of For Each statement. The unique option automatically generates complex DISTINCT or GROUP BY SQL sentences, while a base table can be indicated to ease understanding (and check the correctness) of a complex For Each.
GeneXus Business Process Management now allows users to associate mobile objects (i.e. SD Panels) with BPM Diagrams (Interactive Tasks), to fully define a mobile process in addition to the ones you already have in place. Also, Business Process Management now supports the definition of dynamic forms and new application architectures, as its engine may exist in a separate database or schema.
GXflow inbox-driven solutions are more flexible and customizable, and we have introduced capabilities for inbox-driven mobile app development.
GXserver has been improved and extended to support bigger teams, better version management, and to fully support GeneXus X Evolution 3.
Technology evolves every second, and GeneXus has been at the forefront of software innovation for more than 25 years. We are proud and delighted to present GeneXus X Evolution 3 - the latest installment of the world’s most intelligent development platform.
