Pros

It is an intelligent tool that in just a few clicks and knowledge about development can generate a good information system.
Besides the cost you have, it is well worth it because it is a huge investment. It is highly recommended for medium and large companies.
GeneXus being a low code platform has allowed us to remain lean thus reducing overhead without suffering productivity losses.

Pros

The Auto Doc Features, Inbuilt Console, Now the Dark Mode made eclipse a good Ide to work on. I recommend to fellows for working on it and the Best Part It's Free.
This is the best IDE for professional developers with ease of access to all the configurations and API integration.
So for different projects and different languages you do not need to switch the IDE. Really loved it and really recommend using it.

Cons

However, this is a double-edged-sword. You can fall into the trap or letting GeneXus worry about everything to the point that you can become out of touch with technology trends.
Because of its high cost, small and medium-sized organisations may find it difficult to deploy. The supporting material is appalling.
Documentation does not help to solve problems and is sometimes insufficient.

Cons

Setting up of eclipse is a tad tiresome. If you are not used to use this IDE, it will be hard to understand the project explorer.
Uses more RAM and becomes slow. Difficult to use for languages other than Java.
Nothing to dislike but it not support web development and it takes more memory location.

GeneXus nos da agilidad frente a los cambios y mantiene la productividad al máximo

Reviewed 4 years ago

GeneXus nos permite mantener sistemas complejos, altamente integrados con otros productos y con equipos de trabajo reducidos. Además nos asegura el soporte de tecnologias actuales y futuras.

Pros

El proceso de evolucion de un prototipo y la puesta en produccion fluye con naturalidad en GeneXus, las herramientas de diseño incluidas permiten generar rapidamente soluciones robustas y muy bien adaptadas a la realidad.

Cons

La unica desventaja que encuentro es que el IDE corre sobre plataformas Windows, pero se puede ejecutar sin problemas dentro de una VM en otras plataformas.

Bastante buena

Pros

La facilidad de multiplataforma, su tipo de compilación y tener un solo codigo fuente que nos sirva para compilar en varios lenguajes.

Cons

El desarrollo de smart device va muy lento comparado con los IDE oficiales en cuanto a APIS, y en cuanto a la compilacion en el caso de Android studio los requisitos para publicar en Play Sotore van solicitando cada vez alto nivel de API, y tipo de archivo en lugar de .apk ahora solicitan .aab cosa que genexus aun no hace.

Developing commercial apps using a low-code framework

Reviewed a year ago

Business apps are being built and maintained by us. Applications adapt well to many technologies and are relatively simple to maintain. At the factory, I'm now building web apps to solve a number of problems that were previously solved using excel, greatly improving output and reducing user burden. Consumers were able to calculate their own prices, which created an incentive for them to cooperate with the company.

Pros

What I appreciate most about it is that all of its operations are automated, allowing for the construction and full administration of software systems without the need for substantial initial investments. enables you to concentrate on creating quicker apps rather than thinking about the challenges of creating new software. The IDE runs on Windows. But, the solution may be produced in dotNet, Java and Net Core. It produces a front-end client that is compatible with Angular, Android, iOS, and the web.

Cons

The wiki probably works across multiple platforms since it can support legacy systems. Because of its high cost, small and medium-sized organisations may find it difficult to deploy. The supporting material is appalling. Only a few samples are given, and there is no idex or thorough explanation. Because of this, learning takes a long time.

Bueno acorde al precio.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Muy bueno por el precio y el tipo de licencia. Nos permite generar soluciones para intranet relativamente rápido y con buenos resultados. Generar el backend es muy fácil y rápido, pero trabajr el front-end es muy tedioso. Es muy malo que en 2020 no tenga integracion con GIT y el scm lleve costo.

Pros

GeneXus fue la opción mas económica y con licencia amigable que encontramos entre mas de 10 procutos analizados. (Entre ellos Outsystems, Mendix, Appian, Kony, QuickBase, wavemaker etc Es muy fácil armar tablas y relaciones. Hacer un CRUD funcional lleva muy pocos minutos. El sistema de seguridad (GAM) ahorra mucho tiempo tambien. Se puede deployar en cualquier lado. Buen concepto de environments. Es muy facil armar webservices e interconectar con otros servicios. Generar el backend es muy simple y rápido.

Cons

El soporte es tercerizado en algun partner y deja mucho que desear. El concepto de patterns El SCM se licencia aparte y no es compatible con GIT. El IDE Se cuelga bastante por cualquier cosa. Los tiempos de compilacion son extremadamente largos. El tema por defecto es bastante pobre en cuanto a UX La "documentación" es un caos y es deficiente. El lenguage de programación es propio y no esta a la altura de otros lenguajes. Desarrollar front end es muy tedioso con los patterns y los altos tiempos de compilacion.

Comparacion con otras opciones de desarrollo rápido de aplicativos.

Reviewed 4 years ago

GeneXus se ha utilizado ampliamente para modelar las reglas de los negocios menos genéricas y más volátiles de la organización . Resulta muy rápido y económico implementar cambios en las reglas de negocios cuando los aplicativos fueron desarrollados en GeneXus. Pero los diálogos resultan muy elementales y poco atractivos para el usuario sofisticado. Le estética resulta aburrida. No se saca partido de la capacidad gráfica de los computadores modernos.El programador no propende al reuso, sino que se apoya en la capacidad de GeneXus de generar un nuevo modelo en forma automática sin importar la cantidad de objetos afectados.

Pros

Permitió que el personal con menos capacidad de abstracción desarrollara aplicativos de calidad en poco tiempo. Con GeneXus se actualizaron todos los programadores que solo eran capaces de desarrollar aplicativos de negocios en entornos muy integrados como los sistemas IBM 3X (AS/400, I-Series) , D-Base II o FoxPro.

Cons

Resulta complejo para el programador sofisticado predecir el comportamiento del generador de aplicaciones. Los aplicativos suelen salir a producción con desprolijidades en el disparo de las reglas de validación. El diálogo no resulta tan atractivo como en de una aplicación desarrollada en un IDE de Java por un buen programador. La navegación de las tablas no siempre resulta óptima y lograrlo puede superar la capacidad del programador GeneXus promedio, que se ha abstraído de la problemática de la performance del motor de la base de adtos, la concurrencia de los accesos y otros pormenores técnicos.

GeneXus: Inference Engine, Generators, Extensibility and more

Reviewed 4 years ago

We currently carry out web and mobile development with great agility, we consider that we are 300% more efficient and faster compared to development with traditional tools. We are recently facing chatbot projects with Genexus, which has allowed us to enter this world, under the same philosophy of declarative development, abstracting ourselves from the complexities involved in knowing all the technologies that exist behind these projects.

Pros

For more than 15 years, from versions 8, 9 onwards, I was always surprised by its inference engine, allowing declaratively to describe in the GeneXus knowledge base what we want at the business level, and its powerful inference engine, is responsible for generating the database structure (always normalized), in the database engine that one wishes, and in the same way the transactional screens and other...

Cons

Probably its lack of diffusion and the shortage of GeneXus programmers is what is complex for us to handle. Genexus is a great tool that should be studied from high school with great support and a great community, however, today it is difficult to find programmers.

Para cada cosa que Gx dice resolver, existen alternativas Gratis! que lo hacen de manera MUY eficiente. Y cada cosa que se hizo con Gx resultó ser una deuda técnica, llena de errores, inconsistencia, tareas programadas que se solapan, abusivo uso de base de datos, fechas de entrega que no se cumplen, un mantenimiento ineficiente, y un soporte para el usuario final que no garantiza soluciones.

Se puede crear una aplicación sencilla en pocos minutos, por ejemplo un CRUD.

Cons

Respecto al IDE: sólo funciona en Wundows, no tiene personalización ni modo oscuro, se congela y falla frecuentemente, tiene un entorno de herramientas bastante desprolijo y entreverado, no hay un linter para controlar errores semánticos, no veo una manera eficaz de hacer pruebas unitarias, no sigue estándares.
