EAR support for JBoss EAP 6

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

PRPC deployment in JBoss EAP 6 as an EAR archive is now supported. 

If you need to deploy the JBoss EAR file, go to My Support Portal and submit a Support Request. GCS can assist you with the procedure.

Tracer supports SOAP messages

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can now select a Tracer Settings option to display SOAP connector and services messages in Tracer, which provides users with a better understanding of SOAP connector behavior.

Actionable error message in integration wizards

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

Improvements have been made to the integration wizards for SOAP, SAP, and .NET that enhance the user experience by providing clearer, actionable error messages when there are problems with WSDL uploads; letting you edit the endpoint while creating or testing the integration; clarifying how the data source class layer is reused and removing confusing terms; and adding an option in Tracer to view SOAP messages generated or received by integrations.

Small distribution kit

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

A new “small” release distribution format for Maintenance Levels (ML) is now available, designed to significantly increase adoption via: 

  • Minimal package size and faster download time
  • Minimal install time via tactical changes to the upgrade implementation and process

This kit contains streamlined installers (both UI and command-line installers) and specialized error handling for ML updates (for example, a “small” kit will only work if an existing version of the same release is already installed). 

The kit assembly has also been automated, which includes the construction of a PRPC_Rules.jar archive containing cumulative rules since the GA release. 

A “small” kit will work for any prior ML release within a major release (for example, the “small” ML5 distribution kit will update any customer on 7.1 ML1 through 7.1 ML4).

Improved data page performance

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

Improvements have been made with queueing and processing of asynchronously-loaded data pages to reduce the number of calls to the database and avoid generating performance problems because of unneeded asynchronous requests.

DCO and PMF integration is unavailable

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

DCO and PMF integration functionality is not available in this release. Related project management controls have been removed from the following:

  • System Settings landing page (Designer Studio > System > Settings > Project Management)
  • Application Profile landing page (Designer Studio > Application > Profile > Specifications)
  • Add/Edit Specification dialog

Restricted SMA access

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

System Management Application (SMA) remote connections are not supported on JBoss EAP 6.x. This means SMA users may only monitor locally connected systems. Ensure that the "Local JVM Connection..." option is selected when configuring PRPC nodes:

Generate documents in the background

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When you generate system documentation by using the Document Application wizard (Designer Studio > Application > Tools > Document), the process now runs on a server and not on your local client system. This change not only generates your document more quickly, but also allows you to multi-task within Pega 7 while your document is generating in the background. When the generation is completed, download the document to your computer.

Screenshot generation still runs on local client

Warning message when opening server-generated documents

Screenshot generation runs on local client

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

If you generate screenshots to include in your application document, this process still runs on your local client. Additionally, you are still required to use Internet Explorer to use this feature.

Warning message when opening server-generated documents

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Depending on your system configuration, the following warning message might be displayed when you open a document that was generated on the server.

If you click No, certain content (for example, Table of Contents) is not populated in the document. Instead, click Yes and save the document.
