JBJF Model

Hi folks,

I apologize for the delay in the 2.0.0. I've been working on getting the new JBJF Model to fit in both the JBJF 2.0.0 and a new Eclipse GEF Graphical Design Studio. The learning curve on Eclipse GEF is far greater than I anticipated.

That said, i'm switching gears and just pushing forward on the JBJF 2.0.0. I'll just have to retro-fit the Model into the Design Studio...

JBJF 1.3.2

JBJF 1.3.2 is a maintenance release...Includes two FTP related fixes. One expands the <ftp-definition> element, adding a new <file-type> indicator that allows you to set ascii or binary file type transfers. The second fixes a bug in the FTPPushFile task. When the <target> directory contained a relative directory path, then the ftp would not work. Absolute paths were not affected.

JBJF 1.3.0

A new version of JBJF is now available...version 1.3.0. The new version introduces Plugins into the architecture and begins a shift in architectural design for JBJF. Extensibility has always been difficult with JBJF, but with the new JBJF Plugins architecture, we hope to solve this along with many future plans.

Release - JBJF Version 1.2.1

Hi all,

Just realized the files for release 1.2.1 still have the 1.2.0 version number in them. I'll fix this in the short term and replace the files as quickly as time permits...

Sorry for the naming flub...

Release - JBJF Version 1.2.1

Hi all,

A new version of JBJF is available, version 1.2.1. It is highly recommended that you upgrade to the new version as a nasty bug was fixed in the APIEncryption() class...the original methods can't encrypt and/or decrypt text string longer than 8 characters. Apparently, I've never had a userid or password greater than 8 characters.

There are also some new general purpose task classes for file management and Oracle related SQL.... read more

Version 1.1.2 is a minor release to fix an annoying bug that sends 2 emails out when a batch job terminates with an exception. Sorry for the close releases of 1.1.1 and 1.1.2, but I needed a working version for some work I'm doing.

A minor update/patch for JBJF has been released. This fixes a couple of critical bugs. One involved use of the built-in directory "archivist" which caused the JBJF Batch Definition to terminate with an exception.
