Nuxeo Platform 7.2

Nuxeo Platform 7.2

Nuxeo, provider of the Nuxeo Platform, a highly customizable and extensible content management platform for building business applications, announced availability of the Nuxeo Platform Fast Track 7.2. This latest release provides several improvements including Server-Side Automation Scripting, new developer capabilities, and a major release of Nuxeo Drive.

New features and improvements in the Nuxeo Platform FT 7.2 include:

  • Server-Side Scripting for the Automation Service - Nuxeo Platform 7.2 introduces Automation Scripting. The Automation Service is a high-level, extensible, command-oriented API for the platform, allowing to create business logic (Automation Chains) by assembling reusable logic blocks (Operations).

Based on the new powerful JavaScript engine in Java 8, Nashorn, this provides a way to create scripts that natively call operations to create advanced business logic easily. All operations are natively available to scripts, including custom operations. Plus, Automation Scripts are also published and available via the REST API, are unit-testable, and can be bound to events or user actions, just like any Automation Chain. This bring a new level of ease of use to the powerful Automation Service to create advanced business logic in applications.

All Nuxeo Studio users have the ability to create these scripts via the Script Editor in Nuxeo Studio, including a nice inline suggestion capability, or in their preferred JavaScript editor.

  • Workflow REST API: A new endpoint in the REST API enables easy and natural interaction with processes, including process start, task management, instance listing, and task dashboards. Developers can now connect third party applications to Nuxeo Workflow or develop new user interfaces and applications faster, in the same way they access and interact with content.
  • Improved Data and Field Validation: Forms can now validate user entry based on advanced schema-defined rules and display a customizable message to the user.
  • Enhanced Media Renditions: All videos and picture conversions are now exposed as renditions in the Nuxeo Platform. Thanks to this, all are available through APIs (CMIS, REST) in the same unified way and it’s now possible to control rendition link visibility and generation trigger (pre-rendered, on demand, cached or not, etc.).
  • Bulk Generation of Renditions: A new menu entry has been added in the admin center that allow re-computation of all existing renditions (aka Picture Views) based on a query. This is particularly useful when new conversions are added or changed at low level and you want to apply them over your existing assets (ex: add a retina rendition format for mobile users).
  • Pluggable Marshalling: The Nuxeo Platform now uses a central entity marshalling service which makes it possible to add new marshallers. This enables developers to take over part of the complete marshalling step and change the way entities are represented as JSON either to accept new formats, or to output different formats depending upon use case or application.
  • Better Desktop Sync with Nuxeo Drive 2.0: There has been a major refactoring of the Nuxeo Drive product that includes a new user interface, multi-repository support, and massive performance enhancements. Drive can also now handle more files. Long operations (such as remote full scan) can now be interrupted and resumed.
