All applications face the problem of referential data's retrieval and access. Two major uses are : populating combo boxes, and displaying a field's description from its Id.
ListOfValues is a simple and performant implementation, focused on J2EE applications accessed by rich Java/Swing clients. Each LOV is basically a collection of (id, description) items, as a resultset of a SQL statement executed on the server and made available to the client application. Thanks to an advanced cache system on both client and server, the ListOfValues retrieval is extremely fast.
ListOfValues V2.1 extends the capability of ListOfValues v2.0 to referential data tables whose primary key is not a 'Long' data type.
