Rollbase has released version 3.3 of its eponymously named cloud application platform with new features that allow developers to treat external database tables as Rollbase object definitions. By doing this, the product can be used as means to convert an existing database-driven enterprise software to a cloud application.
The new iteration also includes a way to auto-complete PDF forms with record data, the ability to apply custom CSS throughout the platform, the ability to use multiple grid entry components per page, as well as enhancements to the published application upgrade process.
"All of the new features and enhancements in 3.3 are the result of direct feedback from ISVs who are pushing the limits of what Platform-as-a-Service can deliver," said Matt Robinson, cofounder and CEO of Rollbase.
Custom stylesheets can be uploaded to make Rollbase applications look completely customized. Developers can upload any CSS file as a Rollbase Hosted File and assign that CSS file in Account Settings to make use of it throughout an account.
Before version 3.3, Rollbase only allowed the use of a single grid entry component on a New or Edit Object page for creating and editing multiple related records. Now any number of grid components can be placed on New and Edit pages, making the ability to create multiple different types of related records from a single form easy to implement, says the company.
