Roadmap


Stadium 5 Roadmap

Current

  • Undo/Redo in the designer
  • Webservices as a Connector
    Introducing a Webservice connector will simplify using the same webservice in multiple places of the application. The CallWebservice action will still be left in Stadium to allow for dynamic calls to webservice.
  • Stadium Application Manager
    Manage your Stadium Applications from the Stadium Application Manager. Among other functionality, you will be able to upload new versions, toggle Debug mode, update the Maximum Allowed File Upload Size or Delete your Stadium application from here. The Stadium Application Manager will be introduced piece by piece over a couple of releases.
  • Update Security Model
    We are changing Stadium's security model to be inline with the security model normally used in other applications. This would be only applicable to authenticated sites:
    1. make all pages inaccessible by default
    2. Role membership provides access to pages. I.e. a page is not accessible unless it belongs to a role and the user belongs to that role
  • Query tester
    Test your query to see whether it returns the expected data from within the Stadium Designer.
  • Usability improvements
  • Create sample applications

Near

  • Stadium Application Manager
    Completion of the Stadium Application Manager. Use this to manage your applications.
  • Remote deployment
    Allow Stadium Designers to deploy to remote servers running the Stadium Server and not only locally.
  • Deployed sites use https
    All sites will be deployed using https as opposed to http as in the past.
  • Update help documentation
  • Revisit the Stadium website

Future

  • Types
    Create your own structures to store data in and use in scripts.
  • Tabs Control
    A new control rendering tabs on the webpage
  • JavaScript Action
    A new action that allows you to write custom javascript that will be executed when the script runs.
  • Data Visualization (Chart control)
    Introduce a chart control and possibly other data visualization controls.
  • Repeater
    Define a fully customizable row template that will be applied to each row of the data that is displayed in the DataGrid. Show all fields of a query in one column? Show an image in one column and text in another? Show some fields next to each other in separate columns and some fields below each other in another column? All of this will be possible with this control.
  • Custom Dialog
    A fully customizable popup/dialog. Define the content of the dialog as well as the buttons that should be available on it.
  • Cloud Stadium Server
    Deploy your Stadium applications to a cloud platform hosted by us. For an additional fee, enterprise clients will still be able to host their own Stadium Server onsite.
  • Pricing
  • OAuth
    Use OAuth as Login Mode for your generated application. Optionally, with this type of Login Mode, visitors will also be able to register themselves as users on your application.
  • Simplify debugging your application
    This still requires a lot of thought but the idea behind it is to make your life as a designer easier to locate and solve bugs that arise in your application while building it.
  • Session Parameters
    Easy access to information that will be available for the duration of the user's session.
