Dear ApplinX users
I’m happy to announce the General Availability (GA) of webMethods ApplinX 9.9 as a part of webMethods Suite 9.9 2015OCT release.
The GA release is available for all ApplinX customers.
Here are the new features in this release:
Comparing ApplinX Applications
With the new function Compare Application… you can compare two ApplinX applications, typically two versions of the same application.
In terms of application lifecycle management, being able to compare two different versions means you can perform impact analysis before deploying a new application version.
For example, before deploying to your production environment you can compare your current test application with the production version to see what changes were made, make sure the new application version is complete and that all the included changes were intentional.
For further detailed information refer to Comparing Applications under Developing an ApplinX Application in the product documentation.
Invoking a Procedure, Using REST
In addition to SOAP, ApplinX web services can now be invoked using REST.
From the Procedure Group Entity Editor, select a procedure and choose the new option Copy REST URL to clipboard.
See Invoking a Procedure, Using REST API under Web Services in section Designing and Developing an Application.
Upgrade to Tomcat Server 8.0
The ApplinX internal Tomcat server is now version 8.0.
Improved Performance for Large Send Sections
Performance for large send sections (for example Natural Data Transfer upload or the AS/400 save state feature) has been improved.
Enter Key Recognition
A distinction is now made between the two Enter keys (on numeric keypad and the main keyboard).
The following line has been added to the keyboardMapping.XML" configuration file:
Improved Usability in Flow Mappers
Links now show source / target index expressions (if any exist).
Double clicking anywhere on a link opens the link properties dialog (if the link can have properties). If a target index exists, “Append” is now off by default.
This version is now available for download from Empower under the name ApplinX (v9.9 SP0)
