New Features
1 Detailed QDoc Reference Information
You can now view detailed reference information about all QAD-supplied standard QDocs in an Excel spreadsheet accessible from the Configuration Manager. To access the spreadsheet, under the Configuration tab, click the QDoc Spreadsheet link beneath Help in the lower part of the tree view pane. The QDoc spreadsheet elaborates on all standard QDocs for all QAD Enterprise Application versions, allowing you to compare one version of a QDoc against another for differences. You can also sort and filter data in the spreadsheet to easily view the QDoc information you want.
2 Versioning of QGen Master Data (.dat) Files
During QXtend installation, only standard QGen master data (.dat) files that support the current QAD Enterprise Applications release are deployed. If a .dat file does not match the screen (usually because of screen customization), you can use QGen to remap the screen and save the customized .dat file without overwriting the standard one.
When you install QXtend, the installer now copies the QGen .dat files for the current release of QAD Enterprise Applications to this location:
<QXtend Adapter>/tools/datFiles/standard/
When you modify the .dat files and do not specify a directory when saving them, customized .dat files are always saved to the <QXtend Adapter>/tools/datFiles/ directory, leaving the standard .dat files intact.
When you load .dat files without specifying a directory, the system first looks for the files under <QXtend Adapter>/tools/datFiles/. If the files cannot be found under this directory, the system then loads the standard .dat files under <QXtend Adapter>/tools/datFiles/standard/.
3 Senders Licensing Information
A new License|Senders menu is now available under the License tab that allows you to view the current licensing information of all senders along with their license expiration dates, if any. Currently, only QAD Initial Data Load, which represents the license for QAD QXtend Excelerator, has an expiration date.
Fix Description
Internal ID
Issue Affected Versions
In previous releases, when a password was supplied in the request QDoc, it was also contained in the response QDoc and the e-mail alert as a part of the context information. This has been fixed and passwords no longer appear in response files and e-mail alerts.
If a queue is set to automatically add a SOAP envelope, the Queue Manager now includes the <requestor> tag in the SOAP envelope only when the Require Authentication option is selected for the receiver and Requestor ID is not blank in the Queue settings. Previously, the Queue Manager included an empty <requestor> tag line without attributes in the SOAP envelope when requestor ID was not supplied, which caused every request to fail with the “invalid User/Password” error.
The Sales Order Shipment QDoc has been fixed so that it does not skip updating the line iteration
Previously, when ODBC security was activated, if a record in QAD Enterprise Applications was locked by another user, QXI returned a message indicating the record was locked but could not identify the user locking it. This has been fixed and the system now displays the user locking the record in the message.
The system has been modified to set the session idle time to 0 (zero) after processing each QDoc. Previously, the session idle time was not reset and when a session times out, an error message “User not authorized to access this function” was displayed.
Performance of native APIs has been improved through an authentication cache.
When QXtend 1.7 and 1.7.1 are installed against earlier versions of QAD Enterprise Applications, some adapter files for Excelerator are missing, which causes the error “MenuSecurityService.p not found.” These missing adapter files are now included.
License code for Excelerator (Initial Data Load) can now be successfully loaded into QXtend on AIX machines.
Previously, installing QXtend on HP machines using PA-RISC chips might fail when unzipping packages for QXtend adapters or the QXO qxevents database. Now this has been resolved.
