What's New in 11.7 : OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer

OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer

OpenEdge release 11.7 provides the following OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer features and improvements:
*Change Data Capture management — Change Data Capture (CDC) is a tracking mechanism that enables applications to determine the changes made to user tables in a database. Using CDC in OpenEdge, you can choose individual fields of a table for which you want to capture the changes and publish the data to an external data source. OpenEdge Management allows you to define and manage table and field policies for CDC.
Using OpenEdge Management, you can:
*Enable CDC for a database.
*Create CDC policies for a new table and existing tables.
*View a list of tables that are enabled for CDC, and CDC policies for each table.
*Modify, activate, deactivate, and delete CDC policies.
*Dump and load CDC policies.
*Third-party Web application support — OpenEdge Management supports custom third-party Web applications to accommodate management capabilities for Web applications beyond the OpenEdge environment.
With support for third-party Web applications, you can:
*Host your own Java Web applications in the OpenEdge Management Web server.
*Integrate your own web pages.
*Extend existing OpenEdge Management functionality.
*New OpenEdge resource—Batch Program — OpenEdge Management comes with a new OpenEdge resource, Batch Program, designed to run for longer periods of time and supports separate scripts to start, monitor, and stop the Program. Like any other resource, OpenEdge Management allows you to create, configure, and monitor Batch Program resources.
Note: Creating, managing, and monitoring of Batch Program resources is not supported in OpenEdge Explorer.
Using OpenEdge Management, you can:
*Create, start, stop, and delete Batch Program resources.
*Configure properties for Batch program resources.
*View and manage multiple processes that are starting, running, or stopped for a Batch Program.
*View Batch Program resource log files using the log file viewer.
*Setup monitoring plans and schedules for a Batch Program resource.
*OpenEdge Authentication Gateway based authentication — Along with property-file based authentication, OpenEdge Management now supports OpenEdge Authentication Gateway (OEAG) based authentication. OpenEdge Management provides an interface which allows you to select OEAG as the authentication mechanism to log into the OpenEdge Management console.
*New rules for PAS for OpenEdge — New rules are provided for PAS for OpenEdge monitoring plans. These rules check (poll) a PAS for OpenEdge instance according to the time interval specified and trigger alerts when the instance performs outside the defined threshold values. The threshold values range from 1 to 100 percent.
*New diagnostic pages — New Work Scheduler diagnostic pages are now available for reporting purposes. These pages include:
*Resource Scheduler Details
*Work Scheduler Queue
*AdminServer Threads
*Resource Activity History
*Landing page preferences — You can now choose various options as the landing page you want to view after you log into your management console.
In the management console, click Options > User Preferences and select one of the following as the landing page:
*Default landing page — The default dashboard page.
*Selected view — A specific view, either the default view created by the management console or a view created by you.
*Resource list — The resource grid page with a list of all resources.
*Alerts list — The alerts grid page with a list of all alerts.
*Selected resource home page — The home page of a specific resource.
*Other — A page from thrid-party Web application.
This option is available only if a third-party Web application is hosted in the management console.
*OpenEdge manager login failure — When you create and start a PAS for OpenEdge instance with incorrect OpenEdge manager credentials, the OpenEdge manager login fails and the PAS instance home page displays a message, an alert, and the current status of the instance to notify you about the login failure.
*REST and SOAP transport properties configuration — You can now configure few properties for REST and SOAP transports of a local PAS for OpenEdge instance even when the OpenEdge manager web application, oemanager, is not installed and the instance is not running.
*Upgrade requests for Web Server configuration — When configuring OpenEdge Management Web server, an option, Upgrade insecure HTTP requests to HTTPS, is provided to automatically upgrade insecure connection requests to secure connection requests.
