How do you suggest migrating a complex dynamic site based on DMXzone Data Bindings/ Server Connect to App Connect/ServerConnect?

Hello David,
Unfortunately there is no magical one-click way to migrate from HTML5 Data Bindings to App Connect. It has to be rebuilt.

I'd suggest to just keep your site running using HTML5 Data Bindings, and use App Connect for your new projects.

Is it safe to use DataBindings AND AppConnect on the same project on different pages?
Lets say, I have a Bootstrap Site with several webpages using DataBindings and I'll add a page using the same BS-template but work with AppConnect?

Hi Greta,
Yes, there are no issues doing that, they just cannot exist on the same page.

Hi Teodor
I know you suggested starting from scratch when converting from Data Bindings to App Connect, but I'm trying it out on a page where I used the DMXzone Mailer in conjunction with Server Connect & App Connect as in your video:

I removed all links to the DataBindings javascript files in the Head:

<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataBindings.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataSet.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataBrowser.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataFilters.js"></script>

and all data bindings on the page.

Now I'm getting an error message whenever I change anything on the page:
"HTML5 Data Bindings should be loaded before dmxServerAction.js"

Did you get a resolution to this HTML5 Data Bindings should be loaded before dmxServerAction.js issue?

Yes - the line below should be removed from the <head> as well:

<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxServerAction.js"></script>
