Make component rules validation optional, just as it is the case with restriction lists

In WTX, when running a map, there's an option to avoid validating restriction lists. Having the same option for component rules could be useful in some cases.

format string parser

Please add a parser/validator of format srings into the compiler, so that WTX developers are being notified of invalid format strings that won't work in the WTX engine.

WTX should not crash when a resource value is too large.

Although the limits in resource values is documented, it is still possible to enter too long a value in a mrn file. This crashes the studio when running a map, even if the faulty resource is not used by the map. The resource registry tool should a...

Enable wildcard MSL with multiple Launchers as with single Launcher

When setting up a single Launcher source directory there is no need to specify which MSL files to run. The single Launcher event will go to the assigned directory and find/run all MSL files found. This is effectively a wild card usage of *.msl. We...

ORACLE adapter cannot take benefit of DEFAULT values

We have maps which need to be able to use the DEFAULT value for some columnes, based on business rules. At the moment, there's no way to use the DEFAULT values, and a DEFAULT ON NULL does not solve all our issues.

Need to be able to specify columns when inserting data in a table from a card.

At the moment, the DB adapter does an INSERT INTO table_name VALUES (..., which implies that we insert into all columns. This makes the map depending on the table design, and in out case, where multiple projects may update the tables, create confl...

redesign Oracle adapter for BLOB datatype

The current Oracle Adapter has the following restriction: columns with datatype BLOB can be used on input/output cards only. It's not possible to use them in DBQUERY/DBLOOKUP commands due to string restrictions that are caused by the fundamental a...

enhanced PARSE function

In order to use the new PARSE function as a replacement for the old RUN(submap) constructs, the PARSE function should have similar behavior as RUN(submap). This essentially requires 2 enhancements: 1.) We need to pass arguments to PARSE like "-F21...
