Joget DX Open Source Digital Transformation Platform Now Available for Preview
The Joget team is proud to announce that the first preview release for Joget DX is now available for download!
What is Joget DX?
Joget DX is a next generation open source application platform for faster, simpler digital transformation (DX). Joget DX combines the best of business process automation, workflow management and low code application development in a simple, flexible and open platform. With Joget DX business and technical teams can collaborate to rapidly build full-fledged enterprise applications visually, anywhere, anytime.
Joget started as the open source Joget Workflow project on SourceForge in 2009. Initially a workflow engine for business process automation, Joget evolved into a full-fledged application development platform in its third major release Joget Workflow v3 in 2011, back before the term “low code” was even coined by Forrester in 2014.
With almost 200,000 open source downloads and more than 10,000 community members since inception, the latest major release Joget Workflow v6 was introduced in 2018 with focus on modern User Experience (UX), and App Maintainability and Performance. Joget DX is the next generation successor to Joget Workflow. From Workflow to Digital Transformation (DX), the product name change reflects the complete digital transformation capabilities offered by the platform.
What’s New in Joget DX?
Joget DX emphasizes the following key focus areas:
- User Experience (UX) and Progressive Web Apps (PWA)
- DevOps and Application Performance Management (APM)
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Smart Decisions
User Experience (UX) and Progressive Web Apps (PWA)
Enhanced User Experience for Desktop and Mobile
Joget DX includes a new default Progressive theme for apps inspired by Google’s Material Design to promote beautiful design and good UX. The admin and app designer interface has also been enhanced for greater usability and intuitiveness.
Progressive Web App (PWA) Support
Progressive Web Apps (PWA) is the future of mobile apps and the web, pushed by heavyweights in the industry especially Google. Joget DX apps automatically incorporate PWA features so that all apps will be PWA baseline compliant without requiring additional steps.
Web Push Notification and Offline Support
With features such as adding to home screen, offline support, push notifications and more, PWA compliant Joget apps offer a user experience approaching that of a native mobile app.
DevOps and Application Performance Management (APM)
Built-in Application Performance Management
Joget DX incorporates built-in application performance management (APM) features that automatically monitors system and application performance. The monitoring is done at runtime, and alerts can be configured for various metrics including errors, so that email notifications are sent when thresholds are exceeded.
Web App Log Viewer
Monitoring of logs is still an important way of finding and viewing errors, and Joget DX provides real-time streaming of logs in the web console for easier viewing and accessibility.
Embedded Git Integration for Collaborative Development and Deployment
Git is the most popular free and open source version control system today. Joget DX provides automatic integration with Git behind the scenes. All app definitions and components are stored in the filesystem and version controlled using Git, so apps can be collaboratively built by multiple users or teams. Deployments can be automated or performed manually using standard Git commands, and also integrated with continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Smart Decisions
Plugins for Process Decisions
Decision making is one of the most important aspects in any business. As a part of process automation, Joget DX provides support for Decision plugins that can be mapped to process routes for decision making.
Bundled No Code TensorFlow AI Plugin
TensorFlow is the leading open source artificial intelligence (AI) library for machine learning. The AI focus in Joget DX is to simplify the integration of pre-trained AI models into end user applications. The bundled TensorFlow AI plugin provides a no-code approach to uploading and executing pre-trained TensorFlow models.
Bundled No Code Rules Engine Plugin
A Simple Rules Engine Decision plugin is bundled, providing a no-code configurable approach to define routing and actions within a process.
