Release Information

The CXDev Toolbox was launched 3 years ago as a free collection of 3 tools; the ROQL Query Tester, Staff Account Importer, and the PHP Stub Generator. The first version was a derivative of our consulting efforts at 45 North Solutions; we used these tools extensively during client engagements and decided to share them with the world. Since the initial release, we put out one additional plugin (Account Unlock) and have made only a few critical bug fixes.

Over the last 3 years the toolbox had been rewarded with an admirable following. We have at least 500 regular users from all over the world; from individual administrators of organizations using OSvC, to consultants at major system integrators, to individuals inside of Oracle itself. These numbers were enough to convince us that the Toolbox has value and is worthy of further investment.

CXDev Toolbox 2.0 is the first step down this path. The platform is now owned and developed by 111 West Software, a sister organization to 45 North Solutions. (Interesting factoid: Bozeman, Montana, where RightNow was founded, sits at approximately 111 degrees West and 45 degrees North on the global coordinates system). The toolbox and the 4 original plugins will remain free and benefit from additional focus on the core toolbox’s features and usability. We will refer to the free version as CXDev Toolbox Basic.

For those looking for more functionality, there is a “Pro” subscription service that gives access to a growing library of additional tools. Available today are the “Profile Migrator” tool and the “Object Cleaner” tool. Additional tools will be released on a regular basis. The subscription is geared towards individual developers, configurators and administrators (like ourselves) and is priced at $15/month or $150/year. For a limited time, we are also offering a lifetime membership for $750 dollars. If you have a large organization where many people use the Toolbox, we have volume licensing prices available. For those not looking for a commitment, most plugins may be purchased for a one-time a-la-carte fee.

The new tools will be from an internal collection of tools we use for our own projects, or from your suggestions. Please provide some feedback via the following survey so that we can direct our efforts towards Pro tools that our users want and need.

In a more general sense, this is also the launch of the CXDeveloper Store. Besides the Toolbox, the store will contain other free and paid AddIns, components, solutions and utilities focused on the Oracle Service Cloud platform. Keep an eye out for additional products that will be available in the coming months.
