Version: 08.2.09

December 14, 2020

  • Ensure all User-defined Functions are kept in the same order in the service program to avoid extract errors. See Note 2

  • For Data Set Pushes, the log file name is now PUSH_PushName_ yyyymmddhhmm. For all other remote eGateway connections, the log file name remains unchanged.

  • Correctly determine precision of timestamp columns when creating a new data set based on an existing table.

  • Ensure the SWLVL data area in the base software library is correct

  • Rebuild of an existing data set could drop and recreate indexes unnecessarily

  • Ensure current SW level and project code is written to change log records in all cases.

  • Correction to import of extract program where Transaction Table is a remote type and the first associated table is a data set.

  • Correction to import of a DB2-REMOTE data source of the same name as an existing DB2-LOCAL table.

  • In extract programs, sequencing virtual elements prior to the transaction data source rules could result in a build failure. See Note 2.

  • Fix error with Reverse Engineering when a character column has a default value, and subsequent character columns allow null.

  • Fix error in Work with Data Elements (menu 71) where more than 9,999 data elements exist.

June 2019
