Reusing workfiles makes map faster as it speeds up the alidation process. However, changes in data mean special care has to be taken to avoid issues for the concerned maps. Currently, one has to manually remove the workfiles after the Launcher was...
Whenever a message triggers a map failure, even if the failure is not related to the message's content, the message is blacklisted by the launcher and will not be trigered again. This avoids "poison messages" but needs a restart to have the messag...

In ITX, when the group is defined as fixed and implicit, to identify a field position most of the time we must sum up the field length of previous fields when there is no layout. This would simplify the identification of field in positional files.
