Release Notes 3.0

TOLERANT Name
Release 3.0, 2015/06/03

Notices

  • The manual was updated to version 1.4 (Productversion 3.0).
  • Before this release, when DB request logging was activated, service requests were only logged to the database if either the loglevel of LOGFILE or TRACE was set to at least DEBUG. Starting with this release, the DB request logging, will always log to the database. To disable the request logging to the DB, just unconfigure the defined database in the attribute reqLogDbRef of the runtime.
  • There is a plethora of new parameters for the silent installation:
    • windowsServiceName and windowsServiceDisplayName. These are relevant for the windows installation only and can be set to change the windows service name. If they are unset, the default name (tolerant_name_service) will be used.
    • doHttps If set to true, then HTTPS will be activated for the web server (if configured) and a self-signed certificate will be created.
    • httpsPort If doHttps is set, then this will be the HTTPS port.
    • switchHTTPOff If set to true, then the HTTP port will be disabled. Only valid of doHttps is set.
    • https.password If doHttps is set, then this will be the password for the key-/truststore
    • https.hostname If doHttps is set, then this name value be used for the certificate generation (CN)
  • Windows only: During the installation, new questions will appear. If the question „Change Windows Service Name“ ist answered positively, the internal windows service and the display name for the windows service will be asked and the installer will then change the service registration scripts.
  • All platforms: During the installation, new questions will appear. HTTPS configuration can now be handled by the installer directly.
  • Time spent on garbage collection will be monitored periodically every 5 seconds. A warning is shown if moving average time spent for garbage collection exceeds threshold. Threshold is 5 by default or can be set with system property „tl.gcruntimethreshold“

Fixed Bugs

Installer

  • Bug #1300: If the installer was started in a directory called „install“, the installer deleted itself.

  • Bug #2778: Installation to / fails with exception

General

  • Bug #1499: csv file reader has problem escaping a character if the quote character was not used.

  • Bug #2659: while adding a new user, the security tool does not check if the user already exists.
