Entera 4.2 Development patch 1 : Win32 platforms (NT,95,98)

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. obitest
    1. In the case of DAP_NULL_CHAR="", output displayed by obitest was wrong if the first data value was NULL (case 4455)
    2. obitestj crashed when a db server returns 45 rows of data (case 4452)
    3. Allowed entering of NULL character values in obitest by hitting the 'return' key (case 4483)
  2. Oracle
    1. Cannot connect to remote Oracle database (case 4441)
  3. Sybase
    1. Sybstart crashed when performing a long SQL insert statement (Clarify case 416147)
    2. Cannot execute SQL statements that contain a sub-SELECT. The values substituted for input parameters in a sub-SELECT query are not valid when submitted to Sybase (case 4486)
    3. Sybstart stored-procedure support
  4. If an SQL query was too long the message logged in the transaction log file would be truncated making it difficult for debugging
  5. DAP file attribute TCPPortRanges did not work
  6. Improved broker fail-over mechanism. It took too long (as long as 14 minutes) for the client to fail-over to the next broker in the list if the first broker host is not running (case 4459)
  7. Attempting to set the NewProcess attribute in the broker dap file to a value of 1 would cause the broker to die immediately after startup (case 4385)
  8. Broker Control Program (brkcp)
    1. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error when pinging dead endpoints in the endpoint mapper (case 4442)
    2. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error (connection request rejected or connection request timed out) if the server host is not running
  9. Def2idl aborted when converting .def file with an interface header of [uuid(00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00) version (1.1)] (case 4422)
  10. Fixed idl generation when types_are(fixed) is specified in the SQL file
  11. When generating transaction servers EntGen assumes the interface name as described in the first SQL file listed by server resource file. Changed to prompt user for the interface name when the -s option is not specified (case 4449)
  12. Cobol language frontends (case 4457)
    1. In the generated COBOL server stubs, a reference to "ode_dstb_init_ptr_table" is incorrectly marked as "tode_dstb_init_ptr_table"
  13. Java language frontends (case 4432)
    1. Fixed conformant arrays of structure (including multi-dimensional arrays)
    2. Enhanced typedefs support
    3. Fixed Java to C marshaling problems involving pointer to pointers data types
  14. Delphi language frontends (case 4435)
    1. Context handles support for Delphi servers
  15. Visual Basic frontends (case 4446)
    1. Used Size instead of UBound(Myarray) in Dstr routines
    2. Fixed ode_dstb_push_char_Narr for case where some strings are ""
    3. VB 5.0 client results in Runtime error 49 "Bad DLL calling convention" when calling VC++ 5.0 compiled stubs (case 4493)
  16. Several fixes to example files

Entera 4.2 FX patch 1 : Win32 platforms (NT,95,98)

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Oracle
    1. Cannot connect to remote Oracle database (case 4441)
  2. Sybase
    1. FX server crashed when calling Sybase stored-procedure
    2. Cannot execute SQL statements that contain a sub-SELECT. The values substituted for input parameters in a sub-SELECT query are not valid when submitted to Sybase (case 4486)
  3. If an SQL query was too long the message logged in the transaction log file would be truncated making it difficult for debugging
  4. Several tobigen fixes including
    1. The {server}.h file is no longer included in the generated transaction server header file {server}_funcs.h (it was not required and would cause multiple symbol definition error (case 4381))
    2. Long SQL statement strings were incorrectly broken up in the generated C codes if the 1000th character was a double-quote (case 4409)
    3. IDL generated by tobigen with the -t option caused obigen to abort (case 4470)

Entera 4.2 Development patch 2 : Win32 platforms (NT,95,98)

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Entera Interface Generator (EntGen)
    1. Used handle_t instead of binding_handle for IDL generated by dobigen (case 4511)
  2. Cobol language frontends
    1. Default data sizes in sqlprepare file to 10 if no size specified (case 4518)
  3. When a Java client uses context handles when executing an Entera RPC the generated client stubs will not compile (case 418574)
  4. Sybase
    1. Fixed limitation of Sybase in supporting dynamic SQL statements (eg, 'set rowcount ?') (case 4508)
    2. The datetime format returned by Entera 4.2 did not conform to what Entera 3.2 DCE returned (case 4529)
  5. Turn on NOCOMMIT only if DB_NOCOMMIT=1 (case 4519)
  6. Fixed database auto reconnection problem (case 418192)
  7. Entera dedicated servers with the MaxProcesses attributes did not work correctly under AppCenter 1.6 (case 4521)
  8. When an SQL statement is processed by an Fx server in a transaction dynamic input parameter values are displayed as '?' in the Entera log file (case 418676)
  9. New RPCRecallCount dap attribute ([DCEClient] section) Windows clients sometimes experience a rpc_s_call_failed error especially on Win 95. Set RPCRecallCount to the number of times the RPC should be re-submitted in the case of failure (case 418309)

Entera 4.2 Development patch 3 : Win32 platforms (NT,95,98)

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. New UseObjectUUID dap attribute ([DCEApp] section) With this attribute set, you will be able to keep server instances separate by changing the value of "some_path" in the example dap file below. All servers registering into the same server entry shared the same Object UUID, which was different for every entry. Thus you can separate applications for developers working on servers which export the same interface by having them register into different entries (case 419274)

      [DCEApp]
      UseObjectUUID=1

      [DCEClient]
      ImportName=%cell%/some_path/%service%

      [DCEServer]

Entera 4.2 Development patch 4 : AIX 4.2, 4.3

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Java language frontends (case 4432)
    1. Fixed conformant arrays of structure (including multi-dimensional arrays)
    2. Enhanced typedefs support
    3. Fixed Java to C marshalling problems involving pointer to pointers data types
  2. Delphi language frontends (case 4435)
    1. Context handles support for Delphi servers
  3. Cobol language frontends (case 4457)
    1. In the generated COBOL server stubs, a reference to "ode_dstb_init_ptr_table" is incorrectly marked as "tode_dstb_init_ptr_table"
  4. Fixed idl generation when types_are(fixed) is specified in the SQL file
  5. Broker Control Program (brkcp)
    1. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error when pinging dead endpoints in the endpoint mapper (case 4442)
    2. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error (connection request rejected or connection request timed out) if the server host is not running
  6. Attempting to set the NewProcess attribute in the broker dap file to a value of 1 would cause the broker to die immediately after startup (case 4385)
  7. Improved broker fail-over mechanism. It took too long (as long as 14 minutes) for the client to fail-over to the next broker in the list if the first broker host is not running (case 4459)
  8. If an SQL query was too long the message logged in the transaction log file would be truncated making it difficult for debugging
  9. When generating transaction servers EntGen assumes the interface name as described in the first SQL file listed by server resource file. Changed to prompt user for the interface name when the -s option is not specified (case 4449)
  10. Def2idl aborted when converting .def file with an interface header of [uuid(00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00) version (1.1)] (case 4422)
  11. obitest
    1. obitestj crashed when a db server returns 45 rows of data (case 4452)
    2. In the case of DAP_NULL_CHAR="", output displayed by obitest was wrong if the first data value was NULL (case 4455)
    3. Allow user to input empty string in dbgGetUserInput (case 4483) This enables null to be entered for input parameters in obitest and obitestj according to the following rules.
        Input char datatypes :
          Press return. Resultant value sent to Oracle is NULL. For Sybase, Informix and DB2 a zero length string is sent.
        Input numeric datatypes :
          Type NULL. A NULL is received by all DBMSs. (A '' can be typed when backend DBMS is Oracle or Informix).
  12. Sybase
    1. Syb_start crashed when performing a long SQL insert statement (Clarify case 416147)
    2. Syb_start cannot execute SQL statements that contain a sub-SELECT. The values substituted for input parameters in a sub-SELECT query are not valid when submitted to Sybase (case 4486)
  13. Oracle
    1. Cannot connect to remote Oracle database (case 4441)

  2. The dependencies in the generated transaction server makefile are not complete. The modules {server}_s.c and {server}sm.c are set as dependant on {server}.ddp. They should also be dependant on {server}.idl and {server}.acf (case 4475)
  3. Oracle
    1. Cannot connect to remote Oracle database (case 4441)
  4. DB2
    1. Call to db2OpenConnection failed (case 4415)

Entera 4.2 Development patch 13 : AIX 4.2, 4.3

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. When a Java client uses context handles when executing an Entera RPC the generated client stubs will not compile (case 418574)
  2. When NewProcess=1 the log file was written to both the working directory and the LogDirectory (case 420326)
  3. Check return status of lds_setBroker() call (server core dumps on AIX if Broker DAP settings is invalid -- Invalid network address (dce / rpc))
  4. New UseObjectUUID dap attribute ([DCEApp] section)
    With this attribute set, you will be able to keep server instances separate by changing the value of "some_path" in the example dap file below. All servers registering into the same server entry shared the same Object UUID, which was different for every entry. Thus you can separate applications for developers working on servers which export the same interface by having them register into different entries (case 419274)

      [DCEApp]
      UseObjectUUID=1

      [DCEClient]
      ImportName=%cell%/some_path/%service%

      [DCEServer]

      GroupName=%cell%/some_path/%service%

  5. Sybase
    1. Sybase server crashes when ct_res_info(ROWCOUNT) is called after ct_results() returns a result type of CS_ROW_RESULT (case 419889)
    2. Unable to execute SQL statement blocks containing statements such as stored-procedures and SET ROWCOUNT (case 421557)
    3. Connection id from the previous failed SQL request was not released and used for the subsequent SQL calls (case 421312)
    4. SQL statements with input parameters in the SELECT clause failed to execute correctly (case 422242)
  6. When an SQL statement is processed by an Fx server in a transaction dynamic input parameter values are displayed as '?' in the Entera log file (case 418676)
  7. Improved performance of dce_free() using hash table (case 420213)
  8. Constrained array datatypes did not work in obitest (case 422343)
  9. Entera clients using ode_cln_wait_for_binding() to pre-fetch server bindings consistently failed with an assertion error especially with remote CDS and a low time out value (case 411300/4393)
  10. Entera service lookup enhancements
    1. ObjectUUID information is no longer exported to the service group in the namespace
    2. Support hierarchical group for client service lookup (for a detailed description on the enhancements, please refer to the document Service_Group.txt)
  11. Enhancement to binding handle caching for clients whereby a separate local cache is maintained for each client thread
  12. Support for Visual Basic 6.0 client

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. If an SQL query was too long the message logged in the transaction log file would be truncated making it difficult for debugging
  2. Several tobigen fixes including
    1. Generated transac.c file caused compiler warnings
    2. The dependencies in the generated transaction server makefile were not complete. The files {server}_s.c and {server}sm.c are now set as also dependant on {server}.idl and {server}.acf
    3. The {server}.h file is no longer included in the generated transaction server header file {server}_funcs.h (it was not required and would cause multiple symbol definition error)
    4. Long SQL statement strings were incorrectly broken up in the generated C codes if the 1000th character was a double-quote

Entera 4.2 Development patch 7 : DEC Alpha 4.0d

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Object Interface Tester (obitest)
    1. Allowed entering of NULL character values by hitting the 'return' key (case 4483)
  2. Entera Interface Generator (EntGen)
    1. When generating transaction servers EntGen assumed the interface name as described in the first SQL file listed by server resource file. Changed to prompt user for the interface name when the -s option is not specified (case 4449)
    2. Used handle_t instead of binding_handle for IDL generated by dobigen (case 4511)
  3. Broker Control Program (brkcp)
    1. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error when pinging dead endpoints in the endpoint mapper (case 4442)
    2. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error (connection request rejected or connection request timed out) if the server host is not running
  4. Improved broker fail-over mechanism. It took too long (as long as 14 minutes) for the client to fail-over to the next broker in the list if the first broker host is not running (case 4459)
  5. Def2idl aborted when converting .def file with an interface header of [uuid(00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00) version (1.1)] (case 4422)
  6. Java language frontends (case 4432)
    1. Fixed Java to C marshalling problems involving pointer to pointers data types
  7. Cobol language frontends
    1. A reference to "ode_dstb_init_ptr_table" in the generated server stubs was incorrectly marked as "tode_dstb_init_ptr_table" (case 4457)
    2. Default data sizes in sqlprepare file to 10 if no size specified (case 4518)
  8. Added missing JRE_EXEC and JRE_LIB settings in migwiz
  9. Oracle
    1. Cannot connect to remote Oracle database (case 4441)
    2. Oracle 8.0.5 support (ora8_start)
  10. Turn on NOCOMMIT only if DB_NOCOMMIT=1 (case 4519)

Entera 4.2 Development patch 12 : HP-UX 10.20, 11.0

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Entera Interface Generator (EntGen).
    1. Used handle_t instead of binding_handle for IDL generated by dobigen (case 4511)
  2. Fixed bus error on server when an array of double is used. The previous patch did not address the problem completely (case 4501).
  3. Entera dedicated servers with the MaxProcesses attributes did not work correctly under AppCenter 1.6 (case 4521).
  4. When NewProcess=1 the log file was written to both the working directory and the LogDirectory (case 420326).
  5. Check return status of lds_setBroker() call (server core dumps on AIX if Broker DAP settings is invalid -- Invalid network address (dce / rpc)).
  6. New UseObjectUUID dap attribute ([DCEApp] section). With this attribute set, you will be able to keep server instances separate by changing the value of "some_path" in the example dap file below. All servers registering into the same server entry shared the same Object UUID, which was different for every entry. Thus you can separate applications for developers working on servers which export the same interface by having them register into different entries (case 419274).

      [DCEApp]
      UseObjectUUID=1

      [DCEClient]
      ImportName=%cell%/some_path/%service%

      [DCEServer]
      ExportName=%cell%/some_path/%server%
      GroupName=%cell%/some_path/%service%

  7. Sybase.
    1. The datetime format returned by Entera 4.2 did not conform to what Entera 3.2 DCE returned (case 4529).
    2. Sybase server crashes when ct_res_info(ROWCOUNT) is called after ct_results() returns a result type of CS_ROW_RESULT (case 419889).
  8. When an SQL statement is processed by an Fx server in a transaction dynamic input parameter values are displayed as '?' in the Entera log file (case 418676).
  9. Fixed database auto reconnection problem (case 418192)
  10. Improved performance of dce_free() using hash table (case 420213)

Entera 4.2 FX patch 12 : HP-UX 10.20, 11.0

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Sybase
    1. The datetime format returned by Entera 4.2 did not conform to what Entera 3.2 DCE returned (case 4529)
    2. Sybase server crashes when ct_res_info(ROWCOUNT) is called after ct_results() returns a result type of CS_ROW_RESULT (case 419889)
  2. When an SQL statement is processed by an Fx server in a transaction dynamic input parameter values are displayed as '?' in the Entera log file (case 418676)
  3. Fixed database auto reconnection problem (case 418192)

Entera 4.2 Runtime patch 12 : HP-UX 10.20, 11.0

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Fixed bus error on server when an array of double is used. The previous patch did not address the problem completely (case 4501).
  2. Entera dedicated servers with the MaxProcesses attributes did not work correctly under AppCenter 1.6 (case 4521).
  3. When NewProcess=1 the log file was written to both the working directory and the LogDirectory (case 420326).
  4. Check return status of lds_setBroker() call (server core dumps on AIX if Broker DAP settings is invalid -- Invalid network address (dce / rpc)).
  5. New UseObjectUUID dap attribute ([DCEApp] section). With this attribute set, you will be able to keep server instances separate by changing the value of "some_path" in the example dap file below. All servers registering into the same server entry shared the same Object UUID, which was different for every entry. Thus you can separate applications for developers working on servers which export the same interface by having them register into different entries (case 419274):

      [DCEApp]
      UseObjectUUID=1

      [DCEClient]
      ImportName=%cell%/some_path/%service%

      [DCEServer]
      ExportName=%cell%/some_path/%server%
      GroupName=%cell%/some_path/%service%

  6. Sybase.
    1. The datetime format returned by Entera 4.2 did not conform to what Entera 3.2 DCE returned (case 4529).
    2. Sybase server crashes when ct_res_info(ROWCOUNT) is called after ct_results() returns a result type of CS_ROW_RESULT (case 419889).
  7. When an SQL statement is processed by an Fx server in a transaction dynamic input parameter values are displayed as '?' in the Entera log file (case 418676).
  8. Fixed database auto reconnection problem (case 418192).
  9. Improved performance of dce_free() using hash table (case 420213).

Entera 4.2 Development patch 5 : Solaris 2.5, 2.6

Problems fixed in this release:

  1. Java language frontends (case 4432)

    1. Context handles support for Delphi servers
  3. Cobol language frontends (case 4457)
    1. In the generated COBOL server stubs, a reference to "ode_dstb_init_ptr_table" is incorrectly marked as "tode_dstb_init_ptr_table"
  4. Fixed idl generation when types_are(fixed) is specified in the SQL file
  5. Broker Control Program (brkcp)
    1. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error when pinging dead endpoints in the endpoint mapper (case 4442)
    2. brkcp ping tree and clean object resulted in rpc runtime error (connection request rejected or connection request timed out) if the server host is not running
  6. Attempting to set the NewProcess attribute in the broker dap file to a value of 1 would cause the broker to die immediately after startup (case 4385)
  7. Improved broker fail-over mechanism. It took too long (as long as 14 minutes) for the client to fail-over to the next broker in the list if the first broker host is not running (case 4459)
  8. If an SQL query was too long the message logged in the transaction log file would be truncated making it difficult for debugging
  9. When generating transaction servers EntGen assumes the interface name as described in the first SQL file listed by server resource file. Changed to prompt user for the interface name when the -s option is not specified (case 4449)
  10. Def2idl aborted when converting .def file with an interface header of [uuid(00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00) version (1.1)] (case 4422)

    3. Syb_start stored-procedure support
  13. Oracle
    1. Cannot connect to remote Oracle database
