Release Notes 8.0

TOLERANT Post
Release 8.0, 2017/12/29

Notices

  • The SQLite database driver is now fully integrated in Tolerant products.
  • The admin-command „get environment“ returns a json object instead of a string for the key „ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLES“. This change breaks the backward compatibility for the admin GUI and service.

New Product Features

Configuration and Administration GUI

  • The correct paths are being used now, when editing a batch configuration of an installation with the admin GUI of another installation.
  • The admin GUI now tries to detect the codeset of input files.
  • The function used to determine output and/or input fields from files was extended, to enable the generation of fields even if the file does not have a header line.

Client GUI

  • The query history in the client GUI now shows the project of the request that has been sent.

Batch

  • The console output of batch processes was extended to show the path of input and output files.

Service

  • New serviceOutputField attributes allow changing the default sorting of service results:
    • sortMode: defines how the comparision between field’s values is done.
    • sortFieldOrder: determines the order of the field in the sorting criteria.
    • sortAsc: ascending or descending sorting.
  • The admin-command „get environment“ returns a json object instead of a string for the key „ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLES“.

Security

  • An example which can be used to change the default constraints on the ‚dir.list‘ right was added to the example ’security.xml‘.

API

  • The Java API does not use a certain logging library. An internal implementation is used for basic logging. The logging level can now be changed using the java property tolerant.api.logLevel. Please refer to the manual for further details about possible logging configurations.
  • The Java API has now new methods to change the project and profile of a connection instance.

General

  • The audit logfile now contains the IP address of the caller.
  • New description fields were added for the following internal status fields:
    • post.AMASStatus
    • post.CAMEOStatus
    • post.SupplementaryStatus
    • post.GeoCodingStatus
  • The configuration check now checks the runtime section only once.
  • The support tool now traces the version information of the address validation library.
  • The ‚checkinstallation‘ tool will now compare checksums generated for TLCONFIG to determine whether configuration files were changed after the installation.
  • Tolerant Post will now deliver supplementary data for the corrected addresses, if the new mode FASTCOMPLETION_EXT is used. Please note that the FASTCOMPLETION_EXT requires both BATCH_INTERACTIVE and FASTCOMPLETION reference databases.
  • The SQLite database driver is now fully integrated in Tolerant products.
  • The log messages of third party libraries can be redirected to the Tolerant trace file. For example, adding the following ‚parameter‘ element will change the log level of the hikaricp connection pool to TRACE: <parameter id=“com.zaxxer.hikari“ value=“TRACE“ /> The default log level of integrated opensource libraries is ‚ERROR‘.
  • It is now possible to use post input fields in the scripts for the generated output fields.
  • An example of how to adjust the java heap memory setting can be found in the ‚tolerantEnv‘ script file located in the configuration directory of a new installation.
  • Tolerant Post now ships with the new AddressDoctor library (5.12.0)
    • Improvements:
      • Support for building information in South Korea addresses.
      • Native support for Thailand addresses. Address verification can read and write Thailand addresses in Thai and Latin scripts.
      • Support for territory names in the Country_2 element in United Kingdom addresses (post.Territory).
      • Improved parsing and validation of addresses in Spain.
    • Bugfixes:
      • South Korea: Address Verification does not remove the locality suffix from the locality name element when you set the PreferredScript attribute to LATIN or ASCII and you set the PreferredLanguage attribute to ENGLISH.
      • South Korea: Address verification can match an input address to a historical version of the address in the reference data when the MatchingExtendedArchive attribute value is OFF.
      • Spain: Address verification parses the term BUZON as street information and not as delivery service information when it appears in a delivery address line in the input address.
      • United Kingdom: When you enter a valid post code in interactive mode, Address verification might not return all of the addresses from the reference data. When you Increase the MaxResultCount value, Address verification might return fewer addresses.
