OutSystems' LifeTime Tools Makes Application Development Easier
OutSystems recently released version 7.0 of its Agile Platform. Agile Platform is a full integrated development environment for agile Web and mobile development, including simple drag-and-drop tools to make the development process as quick and easy as possible. The new version includes several new features, such as a tool called LifeTime. LifeTime helps you manage your application lifecycle, and works together with Agile Platform. It gives you an overall view of your entire infrastructure, letting you easily deploy to production, including hot fixes. But what makes this tool great is how quickly it will detect problems such as the mismatch between components or components that are out of date, and notify you of such problems. You can then fix the problems before the deployment actually takes place, helping reduce the possibility of breaking the production applications. But it also makes rollbacks easy. All of this can be accomplished through a simple click, drag and drop interface. eWEEK took it for a spin and tried out some of its features.
