New Product Features

Configuration and Administration GUI

  • The GUI should acquire logging information only when starting-up. A popup message is shown in case of an access violation.
  • The Administration GUI should write the changed xml-Elements and not the complete configuration file. (Only relevant for products with an Administration GUI)
  • The Batch process dialog in the Administration GUI was extended to show the log-file and rejected-files.
  • The Administration GUI provides information about cluster status for each of the configured projects.
  • The validity of the synonym file will now be check before writing synonym file.

Client GUI

  • It is now possible to control behaviour of Client GUI for empty optional service fields (send empty value or discard from request)
  • The Administration GUI provides information about cluster status for each of the configured projects.

Batch

  • The correct file-name and line-number should be written in log file, if a read-error occurred in the input file.

Service

  • In case of service errors, the triggering request will be logged as error in the logfile in addition to the normal request logging to the trace file.
  • New admin command can be used to list all available metrics list metric. The value of the single metrics can be aquired using the admin command get metric.
  • The installer will now summarize all configured URLs for service and configured GUIs (if available) at the end of the installation.
  • All steps within the internal processing now report the size of the incoming queue as performance value in JMX.
  • Following project parameters will be ignored during the check for configuration compatibility in Tolerant Match cluster: saveInterval, saveSchedule, fullSavepointSchedule, nrFullSavepoints and protectedFullSavepoints.
  • The getByKey-Operation for the Match Service no longer returns the type and the partitionId for the returned results.
  • In a service it is now possible to define an output field as of type JSON (‚J‘). This is currently only useful for Tolerant NAME in conjunction with using the PERL script interface. A PERL script could thus return a JSON response, that is delivered as a field within the response of the service.
  • Improved storage of Match data in database, format has changed. This requires re-build of index by new initial load or export/import of data.

General

  • In case of an (unlikely) OutOfMemoryError the product will now crash and create dump files.
  • Unified behaviour (help, usage, result codes, …) of Commandline Tools
  • The new administration command state database project-Id can be used to check the state of the project’s databases. If the project-Id was not entered, all databases will be checked.
  • The usage of the character minus (-) at the beginning of a normalizer section name is no longer allowed.
  • The product ships with a newer embedded web server (jetty 9.3.11). The cyphersuite can be configured using TLCONFIG/jetty-config/tweak-ssl.xml.
