As a late Christmas present, we have discovered that the guys at Haulmont are intending to push our favorite Spring-based open-source Rapid Application Development framework called Cuba into new heights by re-branding it to Jmix (not important) plus making bunch of architectural decisions in right direction (very important).
We have delivered some powerful business apps to our clients utilizing Cuba and thus have also experienced its shortcomings that we had to eventually overcome. Hence we are extremely thrilled about the intention to have less framework redundancy with Spring and getting closer to vanilla Spring Boot. We are also very happy about seeing proper migration approach with adopting Liquibase as we had to write our own migrations for previous versions of Cuba. There’s a bunch of good stuff announced but I will refrain from elaborating further to honor the no-needless-redundancy principle, feel free to dig in here.
We will keep an eye on releases for you and let you know about our hands-on experience with Jmix as soon as we deliver a project on it. Stay tuned.
