We are announcing the availability of the SmartFramework ERD Designer

Release Notes

Following the release of the OpenEdge 11.7 Release we have completed our testing of the SmartComponent Library on this release of Progress and are proud to announce formal support for the SmartComponent Library on OpenEdge 11.7 with the 2017-04-24 release of the SmartComponent Library. Generally we recommend customers on OpenEdge 11 to upgrade to OpenEdge 11.7 quickly. Starting the 2017-07-14 release we are supporting OpenEdge 11.7 Service Pack 1 (11.7.1).

Starting the 2015-10-09 release the Business Entity Designer will feature a start page with links to most recent release note articles on this site.

With SCL-751 we have adopted native Enums for OpenEdge 11.6. To activate this feature customers must add a definition to products.i. SCL-751 provides details for this.

With SCL-1113 we have modified the templates for SmartWindowForms and SmartTabFolderPages generated from the Business Entity Designer. We have removed the initialization of the viewer controls SmartTableIOState property (value was set to "NoDataSource" within the InitializeComponent method). Customers using their own set of templates should adopt the same fix to their templates.

OpenEdge 11.7.3 compatibility

During our tests on OpenEdge 11.7.3 we have experienced the following issues: 

  • [SCL-2216] - 11.7.3 Visual Designer disabling properties of ABL user controls

The issue has been resolved by Progress Software with hotfix 007 for OpenEdge 11.7.3.

OpenEdge 11.7.2 compatibility

During our tests on OpenEdge 11.7.2 we have experienced two issues: 

  • [SCL-2007] - Correct support for WebHandler in CcsServiceManager
  • [SCL-2008] - Closing SmartWindowForm causes crash on OpenEdge 11.7.2

We consider it mandatory for customers using OpenEdge 11.7.2 to use at least the release #44166@2017-11-27 of the SmartComponent Library. 

Due to an fix for

  • [SCL-1924] - SmartViewerControl: copy mechanism cannot cope with clob datatype

from Progress Software for in OpenEdge 11.7.2.001 we further recommend all customers to apply this hotfix as well. 

New Versions of Proparse .NET Assemblies (08 April 2018)

We have updated proparse with further enhancements in this release (see https://github.com/consultingwerk/proparse/releases/tag/4.0.1.1176). Please download the .NET Assemblies ZIP file from our ESD and replace the proparse.net.dll in your environment with the latest one. The new assembly reference is:

<assembly name="proparse.net, Version=4.0.1.1176, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cda1b098b1034b24"/>

As proparse is used by our Business Entity Generator, this new version of the proparse.net Assembly is also relevant for customers not doing GUI for .NET development and require support for parsing new ABL language constructs.

This version of proparse provides additional methods for refactoring purposes. The most recent code in the Consultingwerk.Studio package relies on those methods. It's therefore mandatory to update proparse to this version.

Hybrid Realm now using IAuthenticationService

We've updated the SmartHybridRealm class used for http authentication to leverage the IAuthenticationService. It is therefor required that for AppServers requiring http Authentication (e.g. REST or Web) the correct IAuthenticationService implementation is registered (using service.xml files).

Customers relying on the previous behavior should ensure that the Consultingwerk.SmartFramework.Authentication.AuthenticationService is regsitered as the IAuthenticationService. This implementation will auhtenticate users against the password stored in the SmartUser database table. 

When users with no Login Company set should be able to login using the SmartHybridRealm, it's required to set the Login Company Tennant Domain (similar to the field in the Login Company Maintenance) in the .restapplicationsettings / .applicationsettings, e.g.:

 

 "DefaultAuthenticationDomain": "consultingwerk" 

This is required as the Hydrid Realm Interface from Progress does not provide the domain name to the authentication method.

Overview of included tickets

Bug

SCL-2431 Removed duplicate Attribute from MetaField class

Description:

The MetaField class (data fields) had both the EnabeldForAdd and EnabeldOnCreate attributes attached.

We have removed the EnabledOnCreated attribute as it was not used and caused confusion.

SCL-2438 The ServiceInterface class with selecting wrong methods when InvokeTask was calling into a method that existed with duplicate signatures

Description:

The Service Interface was always selecting the first invokable method matching the signature requirements of an invokable method. We've resolved this issue and ensured that the Service Interface is now verifying the parameter type of the parameter object when selecting the invokable method.

SCL-2441 Consultingwerk.Util.BufferHelper:BufferCompare failed for buffers with CLOB field

Description:

We have fixed an issue in the BufferCompare method with was causing this error on CLOB fields:

"Unacceptable datatype for COMPARE argument (12117)"

SCL-2443 Updated SmartComponent Library Splash Screen

Description:

We have updated the Splash-screen of the Business Entity Designer to be aligned with our updated CI.

!splashscreen.png|thumbnail!

SCL-2449 Added additional ValueChanged callback to RenderedBrowseControl

Description:

The ValueChanged callback can be used as an alternative to the VALUE-CHANGED user-interface trigger.

This was required as the APPLY VALUE-CHANGED in the RenderedBrowseControl does not work as expected with Progress Dynamics browsers due to SUPER-PROCEDURE structure.

Improvement

SCL-2246 Added option to delete menu items to the Menu Structure Importer

Description:

The MenuStructureImporter did previously only create and update menu items which are contained in the source XML file.

We have now added the functionality which optionally allows to delete child menu items from the database that are not/no longer contained in the XML input.

Using the new optional PCTRun parameter DeleteNonExistingChilds (LOGICAL) it is now possible to instruct the import routine to delete removed menu items.

SCL-2408 scl-gen Parameter now adds fluent interface for Property SET

Description:

In order to support a fluent style interface on generated parameter classes, the scl-gen Parameter now generates Methods named like the properties to support setting properties like this:

oCustomer = NEW CustomerParameter():CustNum (1):Name ("Lift") .


or

oCustomer = NEW CustomerParameter()
                  :CustNum (1)
                  :Name ("Lift") .

SCL-2442 Implemented additional DATE, DATETIME, DATETIME-TZ assert methods

Description:

In the Consultingwerk.Assertion.Assert class there have already been methods for DATE, DATETIME and DATETIME-TZ values.

We have now added the missing GE, GT, LE and LT methods.

SCL-2444 Improved error handling in BaseFormHelper:CloseDependentForms

Description:

The method may be raising the following Exception under certain conditionsSystem.InvalidOperationException: Invalid Handle

We consider it safe to ignore those errors as we're closing down anyway.

SCL-2445 Temp-Table ttFolderPages in WinKit's EmbeddedWindowTabFolderForm is now be PROTECTED

Description:

To allow access to this temp-table from derived types.

New Feature

SCL-2436 Implemented Web Handler to retrieve all Image Names from the Backend

Description:

In order to support our NativeScript tooling we have implemented a new Web Handler that returned the names of all images found on the application backend.

We've implemented the following Web Handler:

handler40=Consultingwerk.Web2.WebHandler.GetImageNamesHandler: /ImageNames


The Web Handler expects a list of product modules using the modulecode parameter:

http://localhost:8820/web/ImageNames ?modulecode=Web2%20Demo,Consultingwerk%20SmartFramework

The web handler is configured using the .restapplicationsettings file with a set of entries like this:

    "imageNames": {
        "Web2 Demo": {
            "1": "Consultingwerk/Web/Static/Images/Buttons/*.png",
            "2": "Consultingwerk/SmartComponents/Images/*.png",
            "3": "Consultingwerk/Web2/Services/Rendering/ToolbarIcons/*.png",
            "4": "Consultingwerk/Windows/Framework/Images/Flags/*.png",
            "5": "Consultingwerk/Windows/Session/Images/*.png"
        },
        "Consultingwerk SmartFramework": {
            "1": "Consultingwerk/Windows/Framework/Images/SmartFramework/*.png",
            "2": "Consultingwerk/Windows/Framework/Images/SchedulerJobCommand/*.png",
            "3": "Consultingwerk/Windows/Framework/Repository/*.png"
        }
    }


SCL-2446 Implemented a new enumerator for ABL delimited lists

Description:

The delimiter can be used to enumerate the entries of an ABL delimited list like this:

DEFINE VARIABLE cList   AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO INIT "abc,def,ghi,jkl".
DEFINE VARIABLE cResult AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.

{Consultingwerk/foreachDelimitedList.i CHARACTER c in cList}
    ASSIGN cResult = cResult + c .
END.


or

DEFINE VARIABLE cList   AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO .
DEFINE VARIABLE iResult AS INTEGER NO-UNDO.

ASSIGN cList = "17" + CHR(1) + "4" + CHR(1) + "21" .

{Consultingwerk/Wrappers/foreachDelimitedList.i INTEGER i in cList CHR(1)}
    ASSIGN iResult = iResult + i .
END.

Story

SCL-2437 Auto Layout button in Business Entity Designer caused .NET exception

Description:

The AutoLayout button in the Business Entity Designer is only working in 32 bit versions of OpenEdge due to dependencies of this method in the Crainiate ERM component to 32 bit Windows API's.

We're disabling this button on 64 bit Windows now to avoid confusion.

Task

SCL-2435 OpenEdge BPM Adapter removed from our code base

Description:

We have not been deploying the OpenEdge BPM Adapter for a while now. Now we have also removed the code base from our development code base.

In case customers are interested in using the OpenEdge BPM Adapter, please open a tech-support ticket and we'll make the code available.
