I'm happy to release B4J v9.00.
Download link: https://www.b4x.com/b4j.html

  • IDE performance - several cases where the typing speed became slow were fixed. The speed difference in those cases is significant.
  • #PackagerProperty can be used multiple times with the same key.
  • Internal packager supports packaging non-ui apps (windows only for now). The size of a zipped non-ui package is around 14mb.
  • File.DirData / XUI.DefaultFolder on Mac point to ~/Library/Application Support/[AppName] where AppName is the value set with XUI.SetDataFolder. This is similar to the behavior in Windows.
    It is required when running packed apps.
  • b4xlibs - manifest file supports an Extra field. The value is a single line json string. For now it is used in B4J to add #PackagerProperty attributes automatically. It will be used for other features in the future. See XLUtils.b4xlib for an example.
  • Fixed several cases where javafx.web module was required even when not using WebView.
  • Add existing modules dialog - option to copy module(s) to parent folder.
  • New "before packager" custom build action step.
  • Other bug fixes and minor improvements.
jPOI v5.01 is included as an internal library. There are some minor API changes. It is recommended to use the new version and especially for new projects, use XLUtils.
You should reference XLUtils even if using jPOI directly: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/129969/#content
The old version is available here: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...t-excel-xls-and-xlsx-workbooks.57392/#content

put in C:\Program Files (x86)\Anywhere Software\B4J\Libraries - the .jar requested
search in google sqlite-jdbc.3.31.1.jar and download it if you don't have

Hello to all the Anywhere Software Staff!
Thanks for all your hard work.
I wonder why there is difference in the libraries tab, concerning the installed version and the online version showing minor releases.
Am I missing something?

Thank you for reporting this.
And sorry, I had forgotten to update the Libraries list when I last updated the xChart b4xlib.
I have just updated it.
