Maps with JSON output cards are building very slowly

I have some maps in the design studio. They take 15 minutes each to build. While the build is occurring you can see exactly what is being checked in each map - that's how slow the build is. I have never come across this before. Normally you can't ...

ITX Design Studio Eclipse in sync with Rational Developer for z Systems

We deploy Eclipse tooling to our developers. It would be very benificial if we can include the ITX plugin in our RDz package. The request therefore is to have the ITX Eclipse plugin upgraded to the same Eclipse version as being used for RDz. It sh...

Handling XML data Using WTX map

We have a WTX translation map from xml to Legacy format. The source xml type tree has been created with the XSD schema. Currently the map was working fine with the xml data because it is matching with type tree structure. However the client is say...

automapper should also work with same input/output types

It is a common pattern to work twice on a output card, e.g.:- when the output should also include summarized amounts of several output records that need to be built/calculated first- when the header should announce how many records will follow Now...

Autmoapper from output to output

The automapper is very useful, but only does input to output. In some cases, we need to prepare mapping in one output card, and enrich it later in a following output card. Currently, it can be done but needs some cards copy and moving, and this wo...

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...

Database Interface Designer should take care of all character sets, and not only the obsolete ones

Currently (in 8.4.1.2 and earlier), Database Interface Designer cannot be told to use character sets other than the "historic" ones. It is of course possible to convert the type trees later, but would be better not to have to.

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...

Make the "use ellipses button" a display option

The Map Designer provides a way to use ellipses when draggin'-n-dropin' type references into a rule. This is very nice to make rules more compact and usually improves readability. However, "getting back" to the referenced type is sometimes an issu...
