Sense/Net 6.2 Community
Main new features
- OData Rest API
- Sense/Net is fully internationalized
Our community asked for a REST API and complete Internationalization. We listened and released Sense/Net Community 6.2.
The new OData REST API that lets you talk to the Sense/Net Content Repository using standard tools like Kendo UI's popular components or custom AJAX solutions.
The new release is completely internationalized, all strings are localizable, and culture specific user interfaces are also possible.
Just as always, the new release includes many bug fixes and small enhancements.
OData REST API
The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a Web protocol for querying and updating data that provides a way to unlock your data and free it from silos that exist in applications today. OData is being used to expose and access information from a variety of sources including, but not limited to, relational databases, file systems, content management systems and traditional Web sites. Beginning from this release Sense/Net Content Repository is an OData producer. Your applications can consume our OData service to create web apps on PCs and mobile devices (e.g. with KendoUI), mobile apps (OData is supported on all major smartphone platforms) or any other type of content based applications. In this first release we support CRUD operations on the repository, properties, binary streams, paging options and custom queries. You can expect a wider coverage of the OData specification in future releases.

Internationalized Content Repository
If you are about to launch an international site or a site translated to your customers' language then the new internationalized Sense/Net 6.2 Content Repository will save you a great deal of work. The default installation is fully internationalized; meaning every single text fragment visible on the UI works with string resources that can easily be translated to any language. This also means that captions that were previously difficult to localize can now be translated easily. Date formats, numbers decimal points and currency also obey the culture settings of the .NET Framework if the .NET Framework Language Pack is installed. You can even localize Content Type Definitions by defining different language variants for field captions and option values. We have tested the new localization features by translating the whole base repository to English and Hungarian.
