Version 10.15.2

Casting between EPL data types is now easier

Type conversion is a common programming task, and Apama now makes this a little bit easier.

You can now write:

integer i := 10;

float f := <float> i;

Instead of:

integer i := 10;

float f := i.tofloat();

Previously, doing the following type of cast from an any data type would throw a cast exception if the actual type of the value did not match the target type:

any a := 10;

float f := <float> a; // Previously generated a cast exception, since 10 is not a valid float (rather than 10.0)

Status metrics from multiple Connectivity plug-in chains represented more usefully in Prometheus

User status metrics can now be grouped and viewed more easily in Prometheus-based tools, such as Grafana. User status metrics within names containing labels are now converted into Prometheus metrics with the labels converted to Prometheus metric labels.

For example, the HTTP Server transport now outputs metrics in the following Prometheus format:


Instead of:


As you can see, when dealing with multiple chains, by removing the instance from the metric the metric remains common across all instances, making processing via Prometheus-based tools more straightforward.
