Release Notes 9.0

TOLERANT Name
Release 9.0, 2018/12/03

Notices

  • A version v1 was added to the package name of the Java API classes. If you are using the Java API for your integration of Tolerant products, please adjust the package names accordingly.
  • The question, whether batch should be installed, is not relevant for the installation and will be skipped from the installer script.
  • Starting with version 9.0 of Tolerant Name, the product needs a valid license file to start. Please contact our support team to get a license file suitable for your use case.
  • Improved and more strict validation of lines in csv-files. Characters after the „enclose character“ are now interpreted as errors, which could lead to possible validation errors in configured normalizer- or synonym-files.

New Product Features

Batch

  • The question, whether batch should be installed, is not relevant for the installation and will be skipped from the installer script.

Service

  • A version v1 was added to the package name of the Java API classes. After this change, the usage of different API versions of different Tolerant products is possible.
  • The database table for the request logging can now be automatically created using the number of columns configured in the runtime attribute reqLogDbNrCols.
  • Start, Stop and reconfigure of a project does not require setting the service in maintenance mode.
  • Following changes were made to simplify the usage of the java API:
    • In case of an exception, the exception will be attached as cause to the APIException
    • API retries can be configured using the java property: com.tolerantsoftware.api.maxRetries
    • The check for stale connections and the period of this check can be configured using the java property: com.tolerantsoftware.api.staleCheck
    • The error message: Response contains failure was extended to include the return code from the service response and the causing error message.
  • Request-id can now be set using a new constructor for the connection object.
  • Bulk search requests are now processed simultaneously to better utilize cpu’s available cores.
  • The JVM trust store is now created under TLCONFIG/truststore/cacerts
  • Installer creates the keystore for jetty in the pkcs#12-format.

General

  • Name rule file now supports multiline rules.
  • A micro version was added to all Tolerant products. The micro version is set to the patch number.
  • The bundled JRE was upgraded to the latest Java security patch (Java 8 Update 191)
  • Tolerant Name now uses a license file to control the used volume and the validity period of the product. The product cannot be started without a valid license file.
  • License tool returns a description text for the available modules.
  • A rule can now have the „probability“ „default“. Such a rule will always match, but has the lowest possible probability (0). There can be only one such rule.
