New Formspider version integrates Git with PL/SQL

Today, we are thrilled to announce the new version of Formspider. Formspider 1.8 opens up possibilities that are currently unavailable to APEX developers.

Built-In Version Control
Formspider 1.8 integrates the prominent version control system Git to Formspider. Formspider developers are now able to manage the source code of their applications (both Formspider application objects and PL/SQL code) right within the Formspider IDE.
 


Formspider Version Control Highlights:
  • Improved Team Productivity
    Create and work on different branches of your application. Clone your application and have your team edit the same Formspider application objects and PL/SQL code units at the same time without overwriting each others updates. Pull changes from other developers and merge them easily right in the Formspider IDE using the Merge Wizard.
     
  • Painless Release Management
    Release maintenance versions of a production application while working on new features.
     
  • Instant Set Up, Seamless Integration
    Formspider automatically installs Git, features both a point&click user interface via the Formspider IDE and a PL/SQL API. Be it SQL Developer, SQL Navigator, PL/SQL Developer or TOAD, Formspider Version Control works with any PL/SQL development tool.

Formspider Authentication and Authorization Repository for PL/SQL


We are very excited to announce the release of Formspider Desktop 1.7. FS Desktop 1.7 includes one of the most requested features by our customers.
Built-In Security Repository
FS Desktop 1.7 comes with an integrated authentication and authorization repository. Formspider developers are now able to secure both data and UI elements and grant access rights to users directly from the Formspider IDE.
Formspider Security Highlights:
  • Security both at data and UI layer.
    Grant read and write access at the query, column and row level. Control editable, enable, visible attributes of every UI component.
  • Security aware UI components. 
    Formspider automatically detects the read&write privileges defined at the data layer and restricts access to data bound UI objects.
  • Incredibly easy to manage. 
    Build and maintain your security model quickly with the point and click graphical user interface.
  • Create reports on your security model easily with SQL. 
    No LDAP, no XML, no files. Formspider security model is implemented in relational database tables.
