New for 5.3.0.Beta1 we have changed where asset groups are shown.
Those familiar with Guvnor 5.2.0 (and prior) will know asset groups have previously been listed within the Explorer tree-view underneath the package name. Starting from 5.3.0.Beta1 we have moved asset groups to a new screen, shown as a tab in the main view.
The format of the new screen is being trialled for 5.3.0.Beta1. There has been some discussion whether a single table containing all assets would be better – with collapsible rows to group different types of asset.
The immediate problem with this approach is however that finding different asset types on a “paged table” becomes more cumbersome for the user; as they’d have to sort by type and page through.
We therefore ask for community feedback.
The asset groups are configurable within a compile-time preferences file; src/main/resources/drools-asseteditors.xml. This file is used at GWT compile time to wire-up asset types with their respective editor, group and group icon.
An example extract from the foregoing file looks like this:-
We have also made a few changes to the Knowledge Bases tree view:-
- Hierarchical view, as has been the default up to 5.2.0.Final.
- “Flat” view with no nesting
- The tree’s nodes can be fully expanded or collapsed.
