RAP 1.3 M4 - New and Noteworthy
Here are some of the more noteworthy things that are available in the milestone build M4 (December 18th, 2009) which is now available for download.
This list shows all bugs that were fixed during this milestone.
Drag and Drop
This first version still has some limitations, in particular: feedback- effects (e.g. for trees and tables) are missing, the escape key can not be used to cancel a drag, and the operationChanged-event is not yet thrown. We expect to deliver those features soon.
To try out drag and drop online, see the RAP Examples (go to the List page).
New API added
Text#getText( int, int )
Changes to ISessionStore
ISessionStorehas undergone slight API changes. The methods
getAttributeNamesare affected in that they don't throw an exception anymore when being invoked on an invalidated session.
Instead their return value indicates whether they completed successfully. Due to the multi-threaded environment, it is not possible to reliably determine the outcome before calling one of these methods (isBound() could have changed meanwhile). Please see the JavaDoc for more details.
We don't expect to break existing clients, the changes are documented here for completeness. However, if you are having trouble file a new bug or re-open bug 278258
