DirectJNgine 3.0 just released

DirectJNgine 3.0 is finally out!

Version 3.0 signals a change from ExtJs 4.x to 5.x as the officially supported version. This means that I perform development, and especially testing, using ExtJs 5.x -at this moment the exact version is 5.1.0.

It is very likely, however, that ExtJs 4.x will work ok with DirectJNgine 3.0. But due to limited resources, I just can’t keep developing and testing against multiple versions of ExtJs.

What’s New

The main changes from 2.x to 3.0 are as follows:

  • We have moved to ExtJs 5.x as the plataform we use for development and testing.
  • We have a new connector that supports using both CDI and Spring beans at the same time (class SpringAndCdiDispatcher).
  • We have updated to the newer versions of the libraries used by DirectJNgine.
  • We have had to change how we integrate with the ExtJs Direct examples, because the Sencha guys have changed their underlying infrastructure.
  • With regards to CDI and Spring, we are testing against CDI 1.0 and 1.2 and Spring 3.2.x and 4.1.x.
  • Downloads: we have moved to as the go to place for downloads.

As you can see, there are not many changes, but we felt that it was important to make it clear we are moving from ExtJs 4.x to 5.x: hence the move from version 2.x to 3.x.

  1. Hi, has been offline for at least a week, do you know if it’s a permanent thing ?
    In the meantime, is there another place we could go to get our hands on the latest DirectJNgine release ?

    Thanks !

    • Not a permanent thing, but I have to find time to fix my server, and this requires fixing several VMs my server uses. And, I am a one-person shop :).

      So, it might take some time.

      But DJN is alive and well, and I will send you the latest version of DJN to your email address.

      Enjoy DJN!

  2. So, hmm, I get “550 5.1.10 RESOLVER.ADR.RecipientNotFound; Recipient not found by SMTP address lookup” when sending this to the email address WordPress gave me.

    You better send me a reachable email to pagullo dot soft dot dev at gmail dot com.

    I would also be really interested in the new version of DJN. Would it be possible to also send me the current version per mail?

    thank you very much for your work
