Configure Rice without KRAD (KNS Only)

In some cases it may be desirable to only use the KNS without KRAD. For example if you're timelines push a conversion to KRAD out into the future, you may see some benefits with startup performance and with memory usage.
You can override the kradApplicationModuleConfiguration bean to not include any of the files in the UIF folder. That is, you only need to include these files:


Likewise, this can be done for the ‘baselinePackages’ property on the dataDictionaryService bean.

2.0 to 2.2.0-m1

KULRICE-6674 - UI Framework - Online Help architecture

The help URL on the document and lookup level has been removed from the KEW document type. This means the "Help Definition URL" and the "Document Search Help URL" on the "Document Type" are depreciated and don't serve any function anymore. Instead the help URL are defined on the UIF-View level either within the data dictionary or the system parameters.

The following changes impact KRAD UIF configuration (XML). Mostly these should be covered by the Bean/CSS conversion script documented below.

KULRICE-7219 -  Pass title property through to tag attribute on all components

Previously the component title property was be used for various purposes. For example on Containers the title was used as a shorthand for setting header.headerText. The title property should be getting passed to the template and used to populate the title attribute on the corresponding tag (for example on a group this would be the div). Therefore the change was made to pass this through and add to the tags. The container property 'headerText' was added as a shorthand for setting the header.headerText property. The bean conversion script converts title to headerText. However it must be used with care since this should only be converted on containers (view and group), and not other components (like image or link).

KULRICE-7218 - Combine Inquiry and DirectInquiry

In 2.0, the Inquiry and DirectInquiry were separate widgets with separate properties on InputField. Therefore, when both were required both had to be configured with similar properties. This caused duplicate configuration. In 2.2, the DirectInquiry widget has been removed and the Inquiry widget supports rendering the direct inquiry when the field is not read-only. The direct inquiry behavior can be disabled with the Inquiry property enableDirectInquiry.

Any configuration referencing fieldDirectInquiry will need to be converted to the property named inquiry. Note if the standard inquiry and direct inquiry were both configured for a field, the direct inquiry can simply be dropped. If you were disabling the direct inquiry by fieldDirectInquiry.render="false", this can be changed to inquiry.enableDirectInquiry. The bean conversion script makes this change.

KULRICE-7217 - Growls Processing

The process for adding growl messages server side has been modified. In 2.0, a growl was shown for each message in the GlobalVariables.getMessageMap() that was of type Info. The MessageMap has been enhanced to support a new growl type. For adding growls you now should call one of the following methods:

Code Block

public void addGrowlMessage(String growlTitle, String messageKey);

public void addGrowlMessage(String growlTitle, String messageKey, String... messageParameters);

public void addGrowlMessage(String growlTitle, String growlTheme, String messageKey);

public void addGrowlMessage(String growlTitle, String growlTheme, String messageKey, String... messageParameters);

No changes were made for adding growls client side (still call the method showGrowl(message, title, theme))
