Parameters and the Portlet-Framework

In Intrexx, passing parameters from one page to another, involved a little of programming in the past. Passing parameters to portlets was basically impossible. However, with version 19.03, United Planet introduced two new features. Parameters and a remastered Portlet-Framework.

While portlets were around for some years now, parameters are completely new. In my previous post about building a customer-dashboard, I already used both. In this post I want to go a bit more into the details. I also want to explain how it changes the application landscape inside an Intrexx portal and the basic architecture of Intrexx applications.

Rating System for Low-Code and No-Code Platforms

As I stated in my opening post (Ready? Launch!) one part of this blog is testing Low-Code and No-Code products. Although I’m more of a techie, which means for me it’s a lot of fun trying different products, I also want to share my experiences with you. Now I’m already very familiar with Intrexx from my daily work at United Planet, but I still want to give a fair review to all products. That’s why I try to standardize my reviews, so they hopefully turn out objective.

The goal is to have a (Ninja^^)-Star-Rating like this:

Building a customer-dashboard with no code

There is quite a discussion about the differences between no-code and low-code. Sure, low-code allows developers to add code, if visual developing just doesn’t do the job anymore. With no-code you might just get stuck or need another product, that solves the problem with your first product. The discussion is also about if no-code is just a part of low-code. In my opinion that is just the case. While others say both technologies have nothing in common, I tend to say they are very close, if not even related directly. That’s why I’m taking a look at both.

The other day I gave a lecture about “Portals and Integration of 3rd-party systems” at the University of applied science in Offenburg, Germany. That’s also the university I studied at. One part of the lecture was a hands-on exercise. And even though I was supposed to show the benefits of the low-code portal platform Intrexx, I afterwards realized, that the exercise didn’t include any coding. I accidentally showed the students, how cool no-code can be.

But let’s start at the beginning.
