The section Fixed Bugs gives an overview of the fixes in Canoo RIA-Suite 2014 Update 3.
The section Feature Requests gives an overview of the implemented feature requests in Canoo RIA-Suite 2014 Update 3.
Canoo RIA-Suite 2014 Update 3 requires the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.7 or later on the server and on the client. It is recommended to use Java version 1.7.0_25 or later.
The deployment of a Canoo RIA-Suite application requires a JEE server that supports at least the Servlet 2.4 specification.
Since JRE 1.7.0_51, to be able to run ULC applications in jnlp and applet mode you need to:
- sign all client side jars with a certificate issued from a recognized certification authority.
- include Permissions, Codebase and Application-Library-Allowable properties in the manifest of each client side jar.
- include the security tag in the jnlp file.

- [UBA-6866] - UITextField should not overwrite the minimum size behavior of the installed Look & Feel
- [UBA-8835] - Security Hole : ULC should not allow desrialization of any arbitrary serializable Java Object
- [UBA-8843] - ULC Sample Apps in release give JSP error when running in Jetty with Java 8
- [UBA-8844] - API doc on ulc.canoo.com for ULC ServerPush, ULC OpenDolphin and ULCFxBrowser show wrong title in the browser window.
- [UBA-8846] - java.lang.OutOfMemory using ULCInternalFrame.dispose()
- [UBA-8847] - Ordered Paths via ULCTree.getSelectionPaths
- [UBA-8850] - Improve Javadoc of ULCButton.doClick
- [UBA-8851] - Making a ULCPopupMenu visible programmatically results in strange behavior of ULCPopupMenu.
- [UBA-8855] - ULCTableTree.requestFocusInWindow method does not work as expected.
- [UBA-8857] - ClassCasteException for Border of ULCTableTree's TreeColumnCellEditor when using a custom LnF
- [UBA-8858] - Unlike ULCTable, ULCTableTree does not select the last/first visible row on scrolling with page down/up keys.
- [UBA-8862] - Add "Application-Library-Allowable-Codebase=*" attribute in manifest of client side jar.
- Due to the fix for UBA-8835 it will not be possible to register a coder for pre-registered classes in the CoderRegistry. It is also recommended not to use general purpose SerializationCoder to marshal/unmarshal a class that you wish exchange between ULC client and ULC application on server. Instead, write and register in CoderRegistry a specific coder for that class.
You can find known problems and limitations in our issue database.
When using Java 8 on server side, JarSigner in EasyDeploymentUtility will not work due to reasons listed in UBA-8863. The workaround is to manually sign client side jars and include appropriate security tags in their manifests.
