Hi all !

I'm really pleased to announce the DataTables-taglib's offspring : DataTables4j (for Java) :-)
For the time being, the latest version is 0.4.0-SNAPSHOT but you can already test it and give some feedback.

In short, it allows you to integrate DataTables in your Java/JEE-based web application very quickly and easily.

Take a look at the documentation and the demo application for more information.

Here's some links :

Documentation : http://datatables4j.github.com/docs
Demo application : http://datatables4j-examples.datatables4j.cloudbees.net
Project home : https://github.com/datatables4j

Hope you will enjoy !

Regards,
Thibault

    Hi,

    DataTables4j 0.5.0-SNAPSHOT is now available !

    You can browse docs and demo, which have been updated.
    Among others enhancements, "Feature" concept has been added, e.g. used for filtering. Take a look at http://datatables4j-examples.datatables4j.cloudbees.net/basic/filtering to see it in action.

    There's still much work to be done before the 1.0.0 release, but the machine is in motion :-)

    Feel free to contact me for any feedback and use cases too, I'd love to take them into account during development :-)

    Regards,

    Many thanks, I have tried the release link, but nothing there. Got the 0.5.0 snapshot and must say it is great!!. I am using Twitter Bootstrap 2 DT_bootstrap.css and DT_bootstrap.js along with this. I can therefore, set cssClass to bootstrap and it works!.

    Again, Many thanks. I would like to help, but my knowledge of Java is that of a Novice. But hope to contribute soon. Keep up the Good Work !! Cheers !!

    Hi Rameshk,

    Happy to hear, thank you :-)

    For now, no finale release has been out yet, only snapshots. I prefer to have even more solid foundations and even more features before releasing the DataTablesj 1.0.0 version ;-)

    Hi all,

    Just to keep posted : DataTables4j continues to evolve ! :-)
    The 0.6.0 and 0.6.1 are almost in Maven Central ! No need to add custom repositories anymore :-)
    But beware : you'll have to use an app server that support the Servlet 3.0 API. I'll mention it install notes. So, no need to add the DataTables4j servlet definition and mapping anymore !

    If you want to stay tuned, you can follow the DataTables4j Twitter account : https://twitter.com/DataTables4j

    Hi !

    Some fresh news : v0.8.1 has been recently released in Maven Central !
    Among major new features :
    * DataTables4j now supports another template engine that has a bright future ahead of it : http://www.thymeleaf.org/ ! The Thymeleaf version is less significant than the JSP one but it's on its way ! :-)
    * Themes integration (Bootstrap, jQueryUI ThemeRoller)
    * the full changelog is available here : http://datatables4j.github.com/docs/main.changelog.html

    v0.8.2 is under development and will mainly contain server-side processing support, with a SpringMVC integration !
    The milestone details can be seen here : https://github.com/datatables4j/issues/issues?milestone=3&state=open

    Personal note : as the Datatables4j development progressed (and since the beginning), I'm regularly amazed by the richness of Datatables, its extensivity and its surrounding active community. In short, a great project. Let's hope it continues that way ! ;-)

    Regards,
    Thibault.
