Infinity Process Platform Release 9.2.0

Build number: 9.2.0

Release 9.2.0 is a combined feature and maintenance release.

System Requirements

The typical Infinity Process Platform installation requires:

Note that these are the minimum requirements to successfully install and run Infinity on a personal computer. In practice, too much depends on the number of concurrent users and the network load. Linux, for example, is very efficient in terms of managing resources, and can support more number of connections for fewer resources. If you are using Windows and Java 32 Bit, the maximum amount of Java heap space should not exceed 1.6 GB.

Make sure that you have a proper version of Eclipse Mars SR2. To install Eclipse Mars, we recommend to use the new Eclipse installer, powered by Oomph, which automates the installation and update of Eclipse development environments. For details, please refer to the Installer instructions provided by Eclipse or to section Installing Eclipse Mars of chapter Installation Process.

In case you prefer to use the old-style installation, you also have the option to download the zip file, which is still available on the Eclipse download pages.

Please note that Eclipse does not include the Java runtime environment (JRE). You need JRE (version 7) installed on your PC to run Eclipse, as in the above list.

The application server and the back-end database may require additional resources. Please consult the relevant documentation for additional information.

Supported Platforms

The following tables list all supported micro versions for:

Note
We do not expect any problems in all micro versions covered in the following tables of supported platforms, but we cannot strictly guarantee correct end-to-end system functionality in other platform versions than the Reference Test Platforms, as bugs in the platform code and problems introduced by combining different unforeseen micro-level versions of the different platform components could in rare cases introduce incorrect system behavior that is beyond our control. Refer to section Reference Test Platforms for a list of fine grained version information for our regression test platforms.

Infinity Process Platform API Changes

API Changes

The following API changes have been performed with this release:

New WorkflowService spawnPeerProcessInstance method is introduced with changed parameters

The spawnPeerProcessInstance method of the WorkflowService is introduced with changed parameters.

workflowService.spawnPeerProcessInstance(long processInstanceOid, String spawnProcessID, SpawnOptions options)

The SpawnOptions is a container class for options that controls how the spawning operation has to be performed. The old implementation is now marked as deprecated, please see section Deprecated API.

New policy to include or exclude historical data from process instance detail queries

A new evaluation policy HistoricalDataPolicy has been introduced to determine if historical data should be fetched for process instance data or not. Please refer to section Including or excluding Historical Data from a Process Instance Query of chapter Building Queries for details on this policy.

Execution permissions changed for suspend methods

Execution permissions have been changed from delegateToOther to performActivity for the following suspend methods in the WorkflowService:

These changes allow users who are able to activate the activity to also suspend and save it. Additionally, the execution permission for these methods now defaults to OWNER instead of ALL.

Deprecated API

The following API methods are deprecated:

Deprecated Functionality

The XML Data type integration is deprecated and will not be provided in the Eclipse modeler in future releases. You can use the External Reference structured data type instead, which is equivalent to the XML Data type, with the difference that it supports XSD schema exclusively (no DTD specification). Please refer to section Using External XSD Types of chapter Defining Structured Types for details.

Upgrading from a Previous Release

This section covers upgrading necessary for upgrading from releases earlier than 9.2.0.

For upgrading issues introduced with earlier releases, please refer to chapter Upgrading to Later Versions. There you find all upgrading steps necessary for your specific version.

Model Upgrade required for new Type of predefined Business Date

A model upgrade is required to adjust the primitive data type of the predefined Business Date data to type Calendar (was Timestamp).

Please refer to section General Model Upgrade of chapter Upgrading to Later Versions for details on how to upgrade a model with an earlier IPP version.

Runtime upgrading

A runtime upgrade will be necessary to operate against audit trails created with earlier versions in order to account for the schema changes, which have been performed in this release. Please refer to section Runtime Upgrades of chapter Upgrading to Later Versions for details on how to upgrade an audit trail to a later version.

Schema changes

The following schema changes have been performed in this release:

Using DOCX Files (Templating) with a jackrabbit-jca-2.6.1-infinity01.rar File Configuration

Note that in case you like to use DOCX files, e.g. for templating, and you have a local jackrabbit-jca-2.6.1.rar, which was downloaded via the earlier jackrabbit-jca-2.6.1-infinity01.rar file version, do one of the following:

Upgrading Custom Services which send or receive XML containing loosely defined Namespaces

XML namespaces validation has become stricter since version 8.0. You might face issues if you upgrade from an IPP version earlier than 8.0 and the following points apply:

Please refer to section Solution of chapter Upgrading to Later Versions for details on how to make your XMLs follow the correct XML namespacing standards.

Note that IPP core APIs and services are not impacted because IPP APIs and services use proper XML namespacing standards.

Using a custom Skin in an Upgrade Scenario

If you use a custom skin in your Portal, which was applied in a version earlier than 9.2, you have to re-select it in the Portal Configuration to apply internal changes for default skin preferences.

Please refer to section Selecting the Portal Skin of chapter Configuring general Portal Components in the End User Handbook for details on how to select custom skins.

GroupId and ArtifactId Changes in Templating Artifacts

In version 9.2 groupId and artifactId of the Camel Templating artifacts have been changed. Apply these changes to your environment in case you upgrade from a version earlier than 9.2. Replace the groupId and artifactId names in your POM files with the new groupId and artifactId accordingly.

The following table provides an overview on the groupId and artifactId changes for the particular projects:

Project Old GroupId Old ArtifactId New GroupId New ArtifactId
json-utils com.infinity.integration json-utils org.eclipse.stardust.engine.camel stardust-json-utils
camel-itext-convertor com.infinity.integration camel-itext-convertor org.eclipse.stardust.engine.camel stardust-camel-itext-convertor
camel-templating com.infinity.integration camel-templating org.eclipse.stardust.ui.web stardust-web-camel-templating

Please refer to section Upgrading from Versions earlier than 9.2 of chapter Upgrading to Later Versions for details.

Using Audit Trail Databases created with Versions earlier than 9.0 for Deployments in RAD

If you use an audit trail database in RAD that has been created with IPP version earlier than 9.0, you have to deselect and select the database from the server configuration page. Republishing the server updates the Tomcat server.xml file with the new resource definition entry for embedded database usage.

Migrating Process is required from Versions earlier than 8.2

With version 8.2, the feature structure and packaging of plugins changed. If you like to upgrade from a version earlier than 8.2, you need to perform a migration process, which is described in chapter Migrating from Versions earlier than 8.2.

Breaking Changes

The following breaking changes have been introduced with version 9.2.0:

GroupId and ArtifactId changed in Templating Artifacts

In version 9.2 groupId and artifactId of the Camel Templating artifacts have been changed. Please refer to section GroupId and ArtifactId Changes in Templating Artifacts for details and possible upgrading requirements.

XML Namespace Validation has become stricter

Note that XML namespaces validation has become stricter. In case you use custom solutions or services built on top of the IPP platform with a version earlier than 8.0 and they send or receive XML containing loosely defined namespaces, please follow the instructions described in section Solution of chapter Upgrading to Later Versions to make your XMLs follow the correct XML namespacing standards.

IPP core APIs and services are not impacted because IPP APIs and services use proper XML namespacing standards.

Known Issues and Restrictions with this Release

For general known issues and restrictions, please refer to the Troubleshooting section in our documentation.

Known Issues

Incorrect Login skin appears with a custom skin used in an upgrade scenario

An incorrect Login skin might be displayed if you use a custom skin, which was applied in a version earlier than 9.2. In this case re-select the custom skin in the Portal Configuration to apply internal changes for default skin preferences.

Running into Timeouts when using the Benchmark Daemon

If you run into timeouts when you are using the Benchmark daemon, this might happen due to low batch size values. In that case increase the timeout value of the daemon queue via the property benchmark.daemon.BatchSize in your server-side carnot.properties file.

Additionally make sure that the default transaction timeout for your Daemon queue is at least equal to the value of property benchmark.daemon.Periodicity.

Please find details on properties benchmark.daemon.Periodicity and benchmark.daemon.BatchSize in section Daemon of chapter Server Side Properties.

Partially loaded or improperly formatted pages

If you experience partially loaded or improperly formatted pages, clear your Browser cache.

MSSQL - Issues occur when using MSSQL XA driver with disabled usage of prepared statements

Issues occur when you use an MSSQL XA driver and you do not have enabled the usage of prepared statements. Use prepared statements in combination with a native MSSQL XA driver to avoid these issues.

Cross Modeling: Renaming an imported Structured Data from a referenced Model causes Issues

Renaming an imported structured data from a referenced model in a cross-model scenario might lead to inconsistent behavior.

M2Eclipse - Missing HttpServlet class error occurs after creating a new Maven project based on archetypes

After creating a new project based on archetypes, a missing HttpServlet class error is displayed in the Problems view due to an issue with the m2e-wtp Eclipse plugin. The plugin enables the JavaServer Faces project facet, because it identifies JSF dependencies, and thus also applies additional files to the project. To avoid this issue, deselect the JSF Configurator option in the Maven preferences as described in section Deselecting the JSF Configurator option to avoid Missing HttpServlet class error of chapter Creating a Infinity Process Platform Runtime Environment with Apache Maven.

JBoss 7.1 - javax.ws.rs.NotFoundException is thrown on server start-up

In case you get a java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax.ws.rs.NotFoundException during server start-up with JBoss 7.1, make sure to upgrade the shipped RESTEasy stack to version 3.x. Upgrading to the new RESTEasy stack version prevents that the IPP jax-rs 2.0 is overwritten by the JBoss 1.0 jax-rs API during deployment, which otherwise happens due to issue https://issues.jboss.org/browse/WFLY-1304.

Exception occurs during a JBoss Deployment with MySQL version 5.6

The MySQL 5.6 installation comes with the MySql Connector/J in version 5.1.34. If you deploy this JAR into JBoss as a module and include it in the standalone.xml file, you are facing a DuplicateServiceException.

This is a known issue for JBoss versions earlier than 8 (Module for MySQL JDBC driver with version 5.1.30+ needs <driver-class> in standalone.xml). As a workaround you can define a specific driver-class in the standalone.xml in the driver section as follows:

   <driver name="mysql" module="com.mysql">
      <driver-class>com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</driver-class>
      <xa-datasource-class>com.mysql.jdbc.jdbc2.optional.MysqlXADataSource</xa-datasource-class>
   </driver>
   

For details please refer to section Restrictions for a Deployment with MySQL Version 5.6 in the JBoss chapter of the Deployment Guide.

Portal - Exception occurs when expanding a repository folder with a large number of child nodes in a JBoss environment

If you expand a repository folder having a number of child nodes that exceeds a maximum number of about 500 and you are using a JBoss server, the following Exception might occur:

JBWEB000065: HTTP Status 500 - JBWEB002004: More than the maximum number of request parameters (GET plus POST) for a single request (512) 
   were detected. Any parameters beyond this limit have been ignored. To change this limit, set the maxParameterCount attribute 
   on the Connector.

To resolve this issue, add the following property to your JBoss configuration:

<system-properties>
   <property name="org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Parameters.MAX_COUNT" value="1000"/> 
</system-properties>

Model & Go! - File Arrival option of events is not supported

The File Arrival implementation option from the events of Model & Go! perspective is currently not supported.

SSO IAF IdP project - synchronization fails in case no unscoped organization exists in model

Currently an unscoped organization is required in the model for the participant hierarchy to be synchronized to the IAF Infinity IdP correctly. Please refer to chapter Setting up WebSSO Authentication with the IPP SSO SAML2 Artifact for details.

Logging for Portal WAR deployment on WebLogic misses information

If you perform a standard IPP portal WAR deployment on WebLogic, the produced log might miss some details like bootstrapping information from the Spring Framework or route tracing from the Camel Context.

To provide a proper logging, copy the slf4j-api-1.5.11.jar and slf4j-log4j12-1.5.11.jar libraries to the lib folder of your WebLogic domain.

Models created in the Model & Go! perspective with versions earlier than 9.0 cannot be viewed

Note that models created in the Model & Go! perspective with IPP versions earlier than 9.0 have the following attribute defined as:

<carnot:Attribute Name="simpleModel" Value="true" Type="boolean"/>

which has changed to the following in 9.0 version

<carnot:Attribute Name="stardust:model:simpleModel" Value="true" 
   Type="boolean"/>

Hence, old models cannot be viewed in the Model & Go! perspective.

Limitations with JBoss 7.1

The following modifications need to be applied in the JBoss 7.1 server:

Due to an issue, the JBoss default JSF implementation cannot be changed as parameter WAR_BUNDLES_JSF_IMPL is not working in JBoss 7.1.1. (WAR file using WAR_BUNDLES_JSF_IMPL embedded in an EAR file fails deployment). This is caused by the issue: JSF Version retrieved from deployment unit instead of top level deployment unit.

As a workaround, in com/sun/jsf-impl/main module in jsf-impl-2.1.7-jbossorg-2.jar/META-INF: the .tld files have to be renamed to e.g. *-tmp.tld.

Limitations with JBoss 7.1 for EJB3 Deployment

While deploying JBoss 7.1 for EJB 3, the following exception may occur: org.jboss.msc.service.ServiceNotFoundException: Service service jboss.ejb.default-resource-adapter-name-service not found

For a successful deployment, add the following under <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:Domain:ejb3:1.4"> in the standalone.xml file.

   <mdb>
      <resource-adapter-ref resource-adapter-name="hornetq-ra"/>
      <bean-instance-pool-ref pool-name="mdb-strict-max-pool"/>
   </mdb>
   

Limitation with refresh of Worklist view

Worklist will not refresh itself automatically when the View is activated by tab switch or by clicking on it. It will refresh only when any activity was previously activated from the Worklist View. Note that this is not related to auto-refresh settings of worklist configuration. The auto-refresh settings would still refresh at specified time interval.

CMIS DMS Provider repository search restriction

Filtering the CMIS DMS Provider repository is currently restricted to filter searches by Document name only.

Limitation with Audit Trail Import/Export functionality

When audit trail import / export functionality is configured to be active, for some runtime platforms, interactions involving asynchronous engine operations may be delayed.

Department management in IAF Infinity IdP - synchronization fails for large Department Type Id

Organization hierarchy synchronization fails in IAF Infinity IdP in case the Organization Id created as department type exceeds 50 characters. Please make sure to keep the modelId and partitipantId in all IdP models relatively short as the department type is created by using these Ids (IPP_<modelId>_ MDL _<participantId>).
