Crux 5.0 Released!
The Crux 5.0 brings a number of improvements over the previous version, such as: the concept of views, support for offline applications and support the communication through REST.
Using the concept of view we have a more efficient application and one of the main reasons is because we can share a single DOM to all pages. You can run Crux applications in offline mode. For instance, when you remove the internet connection you can still navigate over the Crux pages. The content is still there! Meanwhile, we also have a client database that allows user to save data content in the device. When network access is available the data will be synchronized with server. GWT has the RPC connection to make the client-server communication, but Crux also has the REST support. And this allows the application to use all the web cache structure that can improve the way how data is accessed. Let's remember that each resource has an unique URI when we use REST.
All the features and improvements in this new version can be found in the Crux Framework 5 Manual. The Crux documentation is created over practical examples. Navigating in the Crux Showcase you can see the widgets final presentation, and all of this source code can be downloaded.
