October 10, 2008, Chicopee, MA – The Apatar Team added a counter to limit the number of transformation launches within the Scheduling application of the Apatar Open Source Data Integration solution. The new feature allows Apatar users to specify how many times the transformation should run before it stops. Apatar users will find the new feature particularly useful whenever synchronization needs to occur multiple times throghout a specified time interval. That way, instead of having Apatar run constantly and check the same data over and over, users can set synchronization to run only whenever it is convenient and/or there is a need for it.
See the Scheduling user guide to learn more about the feature:
