Today, we are very excited to announce the availability of Formspider 1.9. Formspider 1.9 has many new features that make building applications with Formspider better than ever.
Beautiful New Themes
FS 1.9 includes six beautiful new themes with modern, flat design.
Stateful Database Connections
With FS 1.9 applications can now run in a stateful database connection. This enables Formspider developers to use many features of the Oracle Database in their applications such as global variables and global temporary tables.
Moreover, this feature makes migrating existing Oracle Forms applications to Formspider much easier. The code base you’ve worked on for so long assuming a stateful database connection can now be reused in Formspider. Find out more about how you can start using stateful database connections feature in your Formspider applications here. (Hint: It is a single line of code).
ROWID Support for DML
FS 1.9 supports Oracle ROWID so that developers can easily issue updates and deletes to database objects with multi column primary keys.
Dynamic Where Clauses
No more writing superfluous predicates in where clauses to compensate for bind variables with null values. Formspider creates the optimal where clauses for your queries to make them run faster.
Search Screen Wizard
In FS 1.9, the Formspider IDE comes with a new wizard which helps developers to create efficient search screens quickly.
