Major Changes in the OpenInsight 10.0.8 Release

OpenInsight 10.0.8 and above now optionally installs an open-source version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE).  During the installation process, you can choose to either install this open-source version, or - if you have a different version of Java already on your system, or you wish to manually install a version of Java - you can opt to NOT install the open-source version.  Note that the open-source version installed via the installation process does not update your system paths; rather, it puts the JRE directly inside the OpenInsight folder.  Both the commands (batch files) to install the EngineServer service, and to run the Engine Server in "debug" mode, are aware of the location of the JRE and thus do not require modifications to the workstation's/server's environment settings.

OpenInsight's RLIST functionality and performance, improved with the 10.0.7 release, has now been changed to use this new version of RLIST (RLISTX) by default.  If you wish to configure your system to use legacy RLIST behavior, you must create or update a configuration record in SYSENV. Using the Record Editor, or the Configuration Record option from the OI Console, you must create a CFG_RTI_RLIST record in SYSENV, with RLIST9 in field 1.  If this record doesn’t exist, or has anything other than RLIST9 in field 1, then enhanced RLIST behavior ("RLIST X") and functionality will remain.  (Note that the CFG_RTI_RLIST information is cached by your system; after changing this value, you should exit and re-enter OpenInsight).

Other notable changes in the OpenInsight 10.0.8 release include an improved startup process, better OLE and custom property support in the Form Designer, and newly customizable login dialogs.

Starting with OpenInsight 10.0.4, "child" processes launched from OpenInsight can be configured so that they do not consume
additional license seats. In particular, CTO, AREV64, BRW, and O4W calls (using the engine server's built-in web server)
made from a copy of OpenInsight will not count against the licensed count of users.

For example, a single user copy of OpenInsight can now run the IDE, a CTO session, and generate a BRW report at the same time.

Note that this enhancement requires both OpenInsight 10.0.4 (or above), and the Universal Driver 5.2 (or above).
OpenInsight 10.0.8 will work with the Universal Driver 5.1, but it will not exhibit these license enhancements until it is
"paired" with a UD 5.2.

To take advantage of this license enhancement for O4W and engine server tasks, users/developers must update their eserver.cfg file (either directly or through the Settings dialogs). In particular, any passwords that are currently explicitly embedded in the eserver.cfg can be replaced with an asterisk ("*"); this indicates that the specific connection should use the enhanced licensing. This also has the additional advantage of no longer requiring manual updates to the eserver.cfg file when passwords are changed for the applications or users defined in the connection string. (As an additional enhancement, the username can also be replaced with "*" if you wish to use the 'default user' created for an application).

For example, if your eserver.cfg previously contained the following lines:

WebServerConnection_console=SYSPROG,OICONSOLE,OICONSOLE,65,1,RUN_OECGI_REQUEST,,,1,,
SystemMonitor=RTI_OEMONITOR_CLEANUP,SYSPROG,SYSPROG,SYSPROG;RTI_OEMONITOR_INDEX,SYSPROG,SYSPROG,SYSPROG

They can now be replaced with the following lines:

WebServerConnection_console=SYSPROG,OICONSOLE,*,65,1,RUN_OECGI_REQUEST,,,1,,
SystemMonitor=RTI_OEMONITOR_CLEANUP,SYSPROG,*,*;RTI_OEMONITOR_INDEX,SYSPROG,*,*
