Version 2.0.2


Support XPath expressions in "Deletion Where Clause" parameter

"Deletion Where Clause" parameter now supports using XPath expressions.

This allows to generate dynamic expressions which uses some information retrieved from Metadata, for example.

Support automatic creation of primary key when creating target table

When using "Create target table" parameter to automatically create the target table during execution, the generated creation statement now also includes the primary keys defined in Metadata.

PostgreSQL datatype

Addition a new type of column "json", existing in PostgreSQL since V9.2.

Change Data Capture (CDC)

Multiple improvements have been performed to homogenize the usage of Change Data Capture (CDC) in various Components.

Parameters have been homogenized, so that all Templates should now have the same CDC Parameters, with the same support of features.

Multiple fixes have also been performed to correct CDC issues. Refer to the changelog for the exact list of changes.

Version 2.0.1


Fix issue with index name

When delimiters were required on the temporary table, an incorrect index name was generated.

Fix issue with CDC unlock step

CDC unlock step had a wrong generation condition which avoided it to be executed.

Fix creation mask

A column with "bit" datatype did not take into account the set size.

A data type field "varchar" or "character variant" has a maximum size of 1000. When a larger size was set, it was incorrectly handled.
