Date: March 31, 2007
MFG/PRO Compatibility: eB SP4 through current release
QAD QXtend Documentation: Technical Reference: QAD QXtend Inbound (78-0665A)
Important: This release of QAD QXtend incorporates core features of the QAD Data Synchronization product, which was an extension of the QAD Q/LinQ product. QAD Data Synchronization will be discontinued with the next major QAD release. In addition, Q/LinQ is no longer being actively developed. QAD QXtend is now the solution offered by QAD to meet the needs of its customers for a robust data synchronization tool.
Note: For this and future releases of QAD QXtend, release version numbers for both QXI and QXO have been synchronized to 1.3.
1 You can now control the display of messages that arise from unused fields and iterations in response QDocs by using the excludeUnusedWarnings node. By default, the display of these messages is suppressed.
To include messages for unused fields and iterations, edit the qxtendconfig.xml file and set the excludeUnusedWarnings node to false.
2 You can now control whether during application processing the QDoc should send the language-specific mnemonic, or whether the numeric code should be sent instead. To send the language-specific mnemonic, set the value of mnemonicsRaw to False; to send the numeric code, set the value of mnemonicsRaw to True.
3 You can now include the optional query parameter domain in the URI in order to identify the receiving domain within the MFG/PRO database. The syntax of this query parameter is shown in the following example:
If this optional parameter is omitted, the QDoc will use the domain that is specified in the Domain field in the Connection Pool Manager for that procedure.
4 You can now use the Test Harness function in the QXtend Manager to validate a receiver for a UI Adapter connection. This method allows you to test the UI adapter without having to create QDocs that contain dummy data.
In the Receiver field, enter the name of the MFG/PRO session you want to connect to—for example eB2.1. If you employ a User ID and Password to connect to the target MFG/PRO instance, complete the fields in the Requestor Details section. When the QDoc is submitted, a message displays stating whether the QDoc was successful.
5 You can now view the telnet screen for the connection being used to import data from a QDoc when that QDoc is being processed. A new column called View has been added to the Connection Pool Manager. Clicking the View link displays the telnet screen. If there is an error in the QDoc, the scrolling of the QDoc on the telnet screen halts at the location of the error. When finished testing your connections, choose the Stop link, which displays next to the Start link.
1 Previous versions of QAD QXtend are compatible with the double-byte character set but not with Unicode, which caused problems when attempting to represent some Chinese language characters. The new version of QAD QXtend is compatible with Unicode, resolving this issue.
2 If you are operating in an HP-UX or Tru64 environment, you can now avoid a FailureException or AdapterException response by adding the following line to your connection script:
