About

open collective backers and sponsors

eXpandFramework is the first open source project based on the DevExpress eXpressApp Framework (XAF). The eXpressApp Framework ships with DXperience Universal and can be evaluated free of charge (30 day trial) at: https://www.devexpress.com/ClientCenter/Downloads.

eXpandFramework is a FREE extension for XAF and operates within the Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL).

The framework was started and is led by Tolis Bekiaris. Tolis has made a huge contribution to XAF over the years receiving great recognition from DevExpress and the whole XAF community. In April 2011 Tolis was honored to be hired as Technical Evangelist for DevExpress frameworks!

The eXpandFrameowork organization consist of two projects. The main project, this one, which unfortunately lacks detailed documentation, and the Standalone low dependency well tested and well documented DevExpress.XAF repository. The main project acts as a container to the standalone proejct. Eventually all modules of main project will be puzzled from the standalone modules. The framework is transitioning fast from private server to GitHub since Oct 2018, so please bear with us and contribute where you can.

This framework has similar architecture to XAF. We recommend you go through the Getting Started document to get the feeling on how to get the most out of it. Afterwards just installed the modules you want and go through the blogs linked in the list below and feel free to post Issues.

Model Difference

Extends XAF by adding great new features for example:

  • the ability to generate runtime members for your objects
  • creating Application/Role/User models in the database
  • storing your web cookies in the database
  • handling of external application models
  • combine end user modifications with application model
  • support for multiple models at design time

WorldCreator

Creates dynamic persistent assemblies. The XAF user interface allows us to create an assembly without writing a single line of code. Advanced users can even use c# scripting and create new code generation templates.

JobScheduler

For those who are not familiar with the concept of job scheduling, here is some background information. Also, there is great Quartz tutorial, which provides an excellent introduction.

DBMapper

DBMapper has the same functionality as SqlDbMapper however is based on the powerful XPO . Thus DBMapper module is capable of transforming into WorldCreator persistent classes the following list of databases: Access, Advantage, Adaptive Server Anywhere, Ase, DB2, FireBird, FireBirdSql, SqlServerCe, SqlServer, ODP, Oracle, PersasizeSql, PostgreSql, SQLite, VistaDB

Import Export Module

Provides collaboration between a xaf application and another system by allowing you to create object serialization graphs. The complexity of a graph can be configured using either UI or design time attributes. Changing object keys and choosing serialization strategies are straightforward as seen in this screenshot.
