Spring Roo 1.1.0 and STS 2.5.0 released

Spring Roo 1.1.0 has been release. The following main features are included:

  • Incremental Database Reverse Engineering
  • Spring MVC Enhancements
  • Google Web Toolkit (GWT) 2.1
  • Google App Engine (GAE)
  • Apache Solr Search Server
  • JSON Support
  • Serializable Add-On
  • Library Updates
  • Usability
  • Roo is now built on OSGi
  • Add-On Creation, Publication, RooBot and PGP Signature Security

Especially the “Incremental Database Reverse Engineering” is a very cool feature. I have tested it with about 70 tables from my current project and it worked perfectly using the following commands:

project --topLevelPackage de.oio.reverseengineer

persistence setup --provider HIBERNATE --database POSTGRES --userName user --password pass

database reverse engineer --package ~.domain --schema schemaName

The database tables can be changed later at any time while ensuring any code you’ve written in the .java sources is preserved. Very cool!

In addition SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) 2.5.0 has been released with support for the new versions of Roo and GWT. This version of STS is integrated with the Google Plugin for Eclipse to support the GWT and App Engine development.
