Migrating an application from nuBuilderPro to nuBuilderForte

Postby DEMandell » Sun Dec 17, 2017 5:46 pm

Greetings,

I just noticed that nuBuilderForte is available. Thanks for continuing to work on this platform!

I have written quite a complex application using nuBuilderPro and wanted to know if there is any relatively easy way of migrating it to nuBuilderForte. The application has a moderate amount of custom code in it to enable behaviors that otherwise weren't available in nuBuilderPro.

Thanks,

Hi,

Quoting their blog:
There is no upgrade path from version 3 to version 4.

As a small team, we have been focused on other priorities.

But...

Version 3 and version 4 can live in that same database as their system files either start with zzzsys_ or zzzzsys_ and all reports designed with version 3 can be cut and pasted into version 4 as they use the same JSON object.

Douglas,

Sorry, there is no easy answer BUT you will find...

-Creating Forms and Objects is much easier.
-What took 20 lines of code to total a column from a subform is now as easy as using a calculator - with the Calc Object.

Here's a comparison between nuBuilder 3 and 4... http://nubuilder.blogspot.com.au/2017/12/why-is-nubuilder-forte-low-code.html.
