Deprecated features in Bonita 7.6
As you know each versions of Bonita brings a set of new and improved features.
Well sometimes, to do better, you actually need to do less. That’s why, after a thorough investigation, we identified features in the product that are replaced with better alternatives..
By decommissioning unused features, we’ll make the platform easier to use and maintain so we can focus on the core features.
You will find below a list of feature that will be removed in the future Bonita 7.6 release:
- Google Calendar v2 connector
This connector has been superseded by the Google Calendar v3 connector. Old v2 version use deprecated API so is no longer functional.
- Sugar CRM connector
Provided connector is designed for Sugar CRM 6.5 which reached end of life on April 2017. Moreover, Sugar CRM provides now a REST API interface, therefore the REST connector available in Bonita since version 7.4 can be used. You can still access connector source in bonita-connector-sugarcrm GitHub repository.
- Talend connector
The Talend connector is designed for an outdated version of Talend. Also, recent versions of Talend provides a REST API interface, therefore the a REST connector available in Bonita since version 7.4 can be used. The source code of the connector can still be access in bonita-connector-talend GitHub repository.
While we’re at it, we would also like to inform you that V6 GWT forms are part of those features that will be deprecated. In fact the product has moved towards forms developed in UI Designer based on AngularJS. UI Designer offers an easy solution to create your forms but also open the door to more customization.
Therefore we plan to remove V6 GWT forms from the product by the end of 2018 and this transition plan will start in 7.6. We won't have any new evolutions and bugs on V6 forms will not be fixed by Bonitasoft.
