This month release has been a long way in the process. It is adding some really cool features that have been requested by customers. Luckily we had a headstart on some of them because we could see areas for improving the application. The focus has been on productivity to make the system faster with setting up test cases and running recordings.
Since most SAP PI/PO systems run on clustered environments it is quite important to fully utilize it and make sure that other nodes are not affecting the result. We have added some functionality to let the different nodes share workload among each other. We have split the receiving of messages and comparison to different threads making the performance even better.
We have not had clients wanting us to work with sender agreements and receiver agreements on the single stack yet. So it has not been a priority. Now we got some customers using it so we had to make it work. We found that the web service for downloading ICO has been updated because the old did not contain messages with receiver determinations.
You just select the ICO you want to test and the system would automatically add modules for all receiver channels that matched the ICO.
The last is the ability to perform mappings between system information between the system you fetch data from and where you will replay it. Now if there are any challenges with the mapping you will get a nice UI that makes it easier to perform the mapping directly from the testing result that is missing information.
It is also possible to make mappings of interface names. So if you are doing an interface/namespace renaming you will be able to set up the mapping. That way it will be easier to verify that those instances work.
We expect this to be the last release this year, though there may come a few bug fixes. Next year we have some really cool features coming up.
Then there was a bunch of different bug fixes. We started to see this when working on solving customer support cases.
