I have been away the last few weeks enjoying the sun and surf and while I have been away another Group Fix (Group FIx 2) has been released as Patch 12874623.

The group is a rollup of all the fixes and a number of enhancements released since Group Fix 1.

The enhancements in this release are summarized as follows:

  • Infinite Loop in specific situations (12880281) - Customer have reported that under specific conditions using Javascript to invoke Service Scripts on specific input fields can cause an infinite loop. This has been resolved.
  • Rowcounts on Zones (12883848) - It is now possible to display a rowcount field to the F1-DE, F1-DE-QUERY, F1-DESINGLE and F1-DE-MULQRY zone types.

  • Logout Issues (12566205/12632016) - Under specific conditions when using AppViewer and IBM WebSphere may cause the logout functionality to fail. This has been resolved.
  • Schema Changes for UI Map Creation (ER 374) - Additional tags and elements have been added to the schema definition language to allow for UI based sectioning of the schema, UI Map fragments to include complex javascript/HTML and supporting UI Hints for dropdowns.
