Ensemble 2010.1 introduced the following new features:
The following changes in the 2010.1 release may affect the operation of your existing system. Review the following issues before upgrading a previous instance of Ensemble:
This release adds a new FlushBeforeSend
configuration setting to the TCP Counted Outbound Adapter. When set to True, this option causes the SendMessageStream()
adapter method to do a zero-timeout read of all data pending in the inbound TCP buffer before writing its outbound data and optionally reading any subsequent returning data.
If you had implemented a block protocol using the TCP Counted Outbound Adapter in previous releases of Ensemble, you must override the default setting.
This release corrects the behavior of HL7 business services and business operations when you configure the Framing
setting to have a value of None
. This value now results in no framing characters being generated between HL7 messages as opposed to the previous behavior that used whatever framing was declared as the default in the relevant context.
Productions configured with Framing
for various configuration items may be experiencing incorrect framing behavior that works in your context. This change corrects the behavior which may cause your production to stop working. For example, you may be sending outbound files to an entity expecting an ASCII LF
between messages; even though the file operation is configured to put nothing between messages because previously it had been erroneously generating the LF
Release 2009.1 of Caché implemented the RFC4217 standard method of creating a secure FTP transfer, and it also removed the previous legacy mode which assumed that the command channel was to use TLS. However, some Ensemble implementations using FTP adapters were using this mode. The current release reintroduces this legacy connection mode with a special way in the FTP adapter configuration to indicate its use.
In previous releases, your custom HL7 and EDI schemas were stored in the ENSLIB
namespace; therefore, they were mapped to every namespace. However, the Ensemble upgrade procedure replaces everything in the ENSLIB
namespace, so you would have to export and then import your defined schemas to save them when you upgraded.
Beginning with Ensemble 2007.1, only the standard schemas are available in all namespaces. Ensemble now stores all custom HL7 and EDI schemas in the namespace where you define them. If you depended on centrally located schemas in your previous Ensemble version, you must now compile your user-defined schemas in each namespace where you use them.
