31 = For Developers =
32
Thomas Mortagne 13.1 33 == New Filter Module ==
Thomas Mortagne 1.1 34
Thomas Mortagne 13.1 35 Commons get a new base module for all streaming systems based on filters like Rendering and the coming Wiki Stream. See [[Filter Module documentation>>extensions:Extension.Filter Module]].
Thomas Mortagne 1.1 36
Sergiu Dumitriu 16.1 37 == JSON parsing in Velocity ==
38
39 ##$jsontool.parse('["json string"]')## can now be used to parse a serialized JSON into [[json-lib>>http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/]] [[arrays>>http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/apidocs/jdk15/net/sf/json/JSONArray.html]] or [[objects>>http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/apidocs/jdk15/net/sf/json/JSONObject.html]].
40
41 Only valid JSON strings can be parsed. JSONP is not supported. If the argument is not valid JSON, then ##null## is returned, parsing exceptions are cought.
42
Thomas Delafosse 21.1 43 == Query String escaping ==
44
45 The following method ##$escapetool.url(Map<String, ?>)## has been added to the escapetool module. It allows to create a properly url-escaped query string from a map of parameters.
46 For example ##$escapetool.url({'alice': ['A&A', 'M&M'], 'bob': [13, 27]})## would return ##alice=A%26A&alice=M%26M&bob=13&bob=27##. See [[XCOMMONS-435>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-435]]
47
Thomas Mortagne 18.1 48 == New Eclipse cs extension ==
49
50 [[XCOMMONS-353>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-353]] made our checkstyle.xml file unusable as it is in Eclipse cs because of the custom rule that could not be found in the Eclipse classpath.
51
52 ##xwiki-commons-tool-verification-resources## module is now also an Eclipse cs extension which mean you can just drop its jar in Eclipse ##plugins/## folder and you will get the XWiki checkstyle configuration listed in the standard configurations.
53
Thomas Mortagne 27.1 54 == New XWikiDocument API to remove an attachment ==
55
56 ##XWikiDocument#deleteAttachment## methods have been deprecated in favor of the combination of ##XWikiDocument#removeAttachment## and ##XWiki#saveDocument##. This make attachment deletion follow the same behavior as xobject and among other things allow doing all sort of modifications to a XWikiDocument without touching the database until we decide to apply them by saving the document.
57
Thomas Mortagne 1.1 58 == Deprecated and Retired projects ==
59
