Release Notes 9.0

TOLERANT Post
Release 9.0, 2018/12/03

Notices

  • The deprecated profile attribute geoCodes was removed. Please use the new attribute geocodingType to configure the usage of gecoding data.
  • 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.
  • Request ID parameter for bulk requests will now be read as string. Since the request Id is stored in the database, you are advised to deleted the bulk database (TLDATA/bulk) and restart the service, so the new database table structure could be generated.
  • 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 Post, the product needs a valid license file to start. Please contact our support team to get a license file suitable for your use case. Please note that the functionalities in postLicense used to check the unlock-codes, were moved to the new CLI-Tool postEngineUnlockCodes.
  • 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.
  • Updated English Manuals
