BBj plug-ins: useful BBj extensions on demand

BASIS has been offering BBj plug-ins since 2018. These facilitate the extension of BBj with the latest features and function blocks. Most BBj plug-ins are open source solutions and are maintained separately from the BBj release cycle. In the past, all utilities, such as JasperReports, dashboards, or mail libraries were supplied with the BBj installation, installed, and hence updated. Now, within certain limitations, plug-ins can be installed and updated across different BBj versions.

BASIS plug-ins are open source

All available plug-ins can be accessed via the website The “Getting Started” guide on the website will give you detailed instructions on how to install and use the plug-in from BBj Version 18.x onwards.

All BASIS plug-ins are hosted in the source code on GitHub at However, there are some parts where, due to external license regulations, the source code cannot be published. The core of these parts continues to be implemented in BBj itself.

The GitHub repository of plug-ins also contains some examples intended to help you understand the concept of the plug-ins and how to apply them yourself. This will enable you to develop your own plug-ins and make them available to the community. The plug-in manager in BBj not only allows you to install plug-ins from the GitHub area that is hosted by BASIS, but also from your own sources.

New: Powerful grid plug-in

The new BBjGrid plug-in was well received at our two conferences in the US and Germany. It’s a modern data grid with useful features like sorting, filtering, and drag & drop. Its innovative HTML and JavaScript-based UI architecture provide significantly better performance than the well-known BBj Grid.

The BBjGridExWidget plug-in is already production-ready with its core features.
