    Java in Qlik Sense

    deepti singh

      Hello,

               

                I recently downloaded Qlik Sense and was told that I need to know some Java in order to access some features in Qlik Sense. I don't know anything about Java. I just wanted to ask how much of Java I should learn and for what purposes exactly in Qlik Sense.

       

      Thank you.

      Regards,

      Deepti Singh

          They probably meant JavaScript and not Java. JavaScript has been used to build very much of the Qlik Sense front-end along with HTML5 and JavaScript frameworks. You certainly don't need to know any JavaScript to make full use of Qlik Sense. However if you want to extend Qlik Sense JavaScript is certainly the way to go - but not for beginners. How much JavaScript? Well that depends on what you want to do - what you need to get as extra functionality. Basic JavaScript skills along with JavaScript frameworks and HTML5 is a start. Then look into the various API's that Qlik Sense supports for different purposes.

           

          But rest assured that you don't need to learn any JavaScript at all to make very good use of Qlik Sense.

            If your requirement is to replicate features from QlikView that has no counterpart in Qlik Sense then yes - then JavaScript and HTML5 will be the right way to extend Qlik Sense.
