RAP 3.14 - New and Noteworthy

Here's a list of the most noteworthy things in the RAP 3.14 release which is available for download since September 16, 2020.

Requirement for Java 11

Although there is no direct change in the RAP runtime to use Java 11, this requirement is now enforced by the Eclipse Platform.

Increase the minimum required Servlet API to 3.1

Servlet 2.5 API is from 2005, Servlet 3.0 API from 2009. All modern servlet containers are using at least Servlet 3.1. With this change the OSGi bundle version will always match the servlet specification version.

Support for Nebula Grid row headers

In this release we added the possibility to configure and show row headers in Nebula Grid.

Grid cell selection

The following public methods have been added:


  • setRowHeaderVisible(boolean)
  • setRowHeaderVisible(boolean, int)
  • setItemHeaderWidth(int)
  • getItemHeaderWidth()
  • isRowHeaderVisible()
  • setWordWrapHeader(boolean)
  • isWordWrapHeader()


  • setHeaderText(String)
  • getHeaderText()
  • setHeaderImage(Image)
  • getHeaderImage()
  • setHeaderBackground(Color)
  • getHeaderBackground()
  • setHeaderForeground(Color)
  • getHeaderForeground()
  • setHeaderFont(Font)
  • getHeaderFont()

Clipboard support

Clipboard (read/write) support is now available for browsers based on Chromium - Chrome, Opera, Edge. There is limited support for Firefox (write only). Currently it is only possible to transfer plain text data. The implementation is using the same synchronous SWT org.eclipse.swt.dnd.Clipboard API, which is not supported when you run the application in JEE_COMPATIBILITY mode.


This list shows all bugs that have been fixed for this release.
