What's new in the Agile Platform 5.0


Dear All,


We are only 2 weeks away from the release of the Agile Platform 5.0! This is a great new version that will include Business Process Technology totally integrated with applications.


Along with this amazing new capability, we also did a lot of productivity improvements to the Agile Platform, most of them based on our Community feedback - your feedback! Many thanks!


So, as we want you to know everything first hand, in the next days we will be posting videos demonstrating some of the new cool features.

At the end we'll provide a complete "What's New in 5.0" document so that you don't miss anything we did for 5.0!


Hope you enjoy,

Hi Rodrigo,

I just tried to drag an image, but can't figure out how... Does the image need some specific extension type, or is it the size?

Best Regards,

Diogo C S Cordeiro
You can drag any kind of image (jpg, png, gif, bmp, ico, etc...) from the desktop or an explorer window into the web editor canvas. Service Studio doesn't check the file extension, it checks the contents of the file to see if it's a recognized image format.

Best Regards,
Gustavo Guerra

Just wanted to let you know than in addition to Rodrigo's great demos you can find some more at OutSystems web site.

Have fun watching!

Great Vids.. Thanks

Do these Demos have a corresponding Written Tutorial or has the Academy/Training site been updated with the new 5.0 Changes.


And Once again you guys have done a awesome Job with the Platform... Way to Go!

 Hi Gary,


We have released a Developer Course 3 that focus only on Business Process Technology. Check it out here.





For those of you already using the BAM module (Business Activity Monitoring), that comes with the Business Process Technology add-on of 5.0, I want to let you know that we've just launched a new version of this module.


In response to the continuous feedback from you all of you, let me highlight some of the latest cool features that were just launched in 5.0.2 release:
  • Process Debugger - For those of you using BPT, it’s now possible to debug business processes in the same way you do with web applications, fully visual, and fully integrated within the Platform. Debugging was also extended to the Public Area, allowing you to also debug timers, web services and processes along with your applications. Other improvements were also added, like the Break on all Errors option.
  • BAM Enhancements - The BAM module that comes with BPT has been enhanced in the process navigation, the KPIs that you can find on the dashboard, and the User Interface. The process flow graph now includes a complete and detailed information about each process activity and displays the process history visually and according the process model as you designed in Service Studio. Download the latest version here.
  • Support for Oracle 11gR2 - Net + Oracle database stack of 5.0 has just been released. This means that if you are running a 4.2 Oracle installation, you can now upgrade to 5.0 and take full advantage of its new capabilities, such as BPT! The Agile Platform 5.0 now provides support for both Oracle 10gR2 and 11gR2. Check the System Requirements tech note for more details here.

Upgrade to 5.0.2 and have fun!
