The new version of Aspose.Tasks for Java API renders the sub-tasks to output only if the parent summary task is in expanded form inside Java Apps same like Microsoft Project.

Lane Cove, NSW, Australia., June 10, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -

The new version of Aspose.Tasks for Java v6.7.0 has been released. This release provides users with the capability to render sub-tasks based on the parent summary task. The last version of Aspose.Tasks for Java 6.6.0 had the capability to read the “IsExpanded” property of a Summary task but this information was never used to determine the rendering of sub-tasks to output when rendering Project document in Java. Microsoft Project, however, retains the information available in this property and renders the sub-tasks only when the parent task is in expanded form.
With this release, Aspose.Tasks Java API now takes into account this information and renders the sub-tasks to output only if the parent summary task is in expanded form. If the IsExpanded property is set to true, the sub-tasks will be rendered to output and vice versa.
This release also fixes a number of issues that were found and reported with the previous version of Aspose.Tasks. These include issues related to wrong split task count reading, project’s calendar reading and Work Type resources. This further aids to the value of the API and brings improvement to the overall functionality. Below is the complete list of new features and important bug fixes included in this release.

  • Provide the facility to print expanded/non-expanded summaries only
  • Task.Calendar returns ParentProject.Calendar when must be null is now fixed
  • Non Work Type resources cause task duration to ZERO is now fixed
  • Wrong SplitTask count is read is now fixed
  • Read view data from mpp 2013, 2010, 2007 and 2003
  • Read specific gantt chart view data for 2003 file format.
