C3Faces 1.3 officially released

C3Faces is a chart library for JSF based on c3.js. I want to announce the third official version of this library released to Maven central coming with a small fix for older versions of JSF and pre-defined colors and themes.

Fix for older versions of JSF

The configuration file faces-config.xml was extended and is now declaring components from the taglib. This requirement is defined by older versions of JSF and Spring Boot. Background information demanding this fix can be found here.

Pre-defined colors and themes

It is now possible to select pre-defined colors and themes for much more harmonius colours in charts. Therefore the classes C3Color and C3Theme were introduced. C3Theme contains themes used in Microsoft Excel or LibreOffice Spreadsheet. Showcase does not reflect this change so feel free playing around with this classes.

Further information

Changelog about further changes between previous version and the present one can be found in the official Changelog in the GitHub repository.

Have fun while playing around with C3Faces and if you find any issues or have suggestions for new features please leave a comment.

Hybride Softwareentwicklung

Agile Softwareentwicklung erlebt gegenwärtig einen großen Hype. Neuerdings ist aber auch ein Gegentrend zu diesem Hype zurück zu den klassischen Vorgehensmodellen zu bemerken. Hybride Softwareentwicklung beschreibt einen Ansatz, der die Vorteile beider Welten in einem Modell vereint und stellt seine Praxistauglichkeit anhand von Case Studies unter Beweis. Zusammen mit den Co-Autoren erläutere ich die Vorteile der hybriden Softwareentwicklung und diskutiere praxisorientierte Lösungsansätze für IT-Manager und Projektleiter.
