RAP 1.4 M3 supports JQuery, reduced client size

November 13, 2010 | 1 min Read

Another milestone build on the way to RAP 1.4 is available: RAP 1.4 M3.

In this milestone, we conentrated on optimizations to the Javascript code that we deliver to the client browser. We managed to reduce the size of this code by ~8%, making RAP apps load a litte bit faster again. More optimizations will follow.

As a nice side effect of using a new Javascript compressor, RAP does not interfere with JQuery anymore. That means that you can now use JQuery in your RAP applications, if you like.

In the next milestone, scheduled for Dec 17, you can expect updated JFace and Workbench bundles as well as key bindings support.
