|HP||Data Protector||An additional attribute, agent_name, was added to the Agent pattern. Cell Server Database Service, Cell Server Service, Media Management Server, Agent patterns have had active versioning added. Additionally, a second-order SI pattern added which describes the HP Data Protector Cell Manager. The Cell Manager pattern acts as a container for Cell Server Database Service, Cell Server Service and Media Manager Server patterns, and also retrieves licensing information for the product.||N|
|IBM||Rational ClearQuest||ClearQuest Web Platform pattern trigger updated to use TPL 1.1 functionality - the conditions for triggering are now 'created' or 'confirmed'||N|
|Oracle||Application Server||The way the patterns create the model for Oracle Application Server was re-worked to make it more accurate. Oracle Application Server is a collection of Oracle OC4J (J2EE Container) instances, and this is now reflected by the patterns that model the product. The original Application Server pattern has been broken out into two patterns, with a first-order SI pattern for Oracle Application Server OC4J instance being used as a building block for second-order Oracle Application Server pattern. In addition to this, we added code to ensure all optional additional attributes were displayed in the Software Instance when they were populated||Y|
Server pattern was updated in the following ways:
In addition, the Agent pattern was updated in the following ways:
|Oracle||RDBMS||Database Server pattern enhanced to obtain listening port information and global database service name||N|
The following bugs have been fixed in Tideway Knowledge Update 2009-Mar-1
|Case No||Defect No||Details||Pattern Module|
|N/A||11442||The poweron_startup attribute in the VMware.tpl pattern currently has three statuses: True (definitely does start up), False (definitely does not start up) or None (no evidence either way). The attribute was being added only if the status was set to True. Pattern updated so that the attribute is always added.|
|N/A||11447||BEA WebLogic Application Server pattern (Windows) did not have user configurable settings for the listening port. This has now been rectified.|
|N/A||11482||HP ServiceGuard pattern executes 'cmviewcl' command to get the information about the cluster being managed. Unfortunately this command requires elevated privileges which the pattern assumed were always granted. The pattern now checks whether execution with elevated privileges is allowed, and this setting is now user configurable.|
|N/A||11477||JBoss and JBoss Portal Patterns will not match base_dir if path to run.jar is not first entry in the classpath. Issue rectified, classpaths with multiple entries now handled|
|N/A||11498||JBoss and JBoss Portal Patterns will not parse classpath entries if they have spaces in them (as can happen on the Windows platform). Issue rectified, classpaths with spaces now handled|
|N/A||11543||In Microsoft Dynamics BAI pattern an incorrect variable was used in code to link SIs. This has now been rectified.|
|N/A||11610||The .NET pattern will pick up .NET Compact Framework which is a mobile version of .NET framework. The pattern has been modified to ignore the installations of Compact Framework. Additionally, more versions have been added to the version mapping table.|
|N/A||11622||Oracle RDBMS Express Edition UNIX pattern trigger has the following trigger: unix_cmd 'xe_smon_.+$' This means that when internally converted into a regular expression, an extra (redundant) '$' is left at the end of the trigger. This has now been rectified and the trigger updated - no longer contains the additional '$'|
|19108||11631||Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server pattern may exit with an ECA Engine error in certain cases where it cannot determine the type of application server. This has now been rectified. Additional code added to set a default server type if it cannot be determined by the pattern.|
