1.1.0

1.0.69

19:23, 01 January 2011 (UTC) by Richard Schoen

  1. Added switch to enable DataCap XML handling. Enabled by default. Since WebForms also have XML extensions, they were getting ignored by the import processing because the directory filter was omimtting XML files. We use the switch to soft code the DataCap extension to .RDX for processing if DataCap processing disabled or .XML for processing if DataCap processing enabled. Note: If DataCap processing is enabled, the same instance of the Batch Import server cannot processs documents from DataCap and WebForms at the same time. May need to rework later so DataCap and WebForms can co-exist on same instance.
Note: If you need to process WebForms, make sure to uncheck the "Enable DataCap XML Index File Handling" setting.

1.0.68

19:23, 15 November 2010 (UTC) by Brad Schubert

1.0.64

16:49, 2 October 2009 (CDT) by Nathan Kraemer

  1. Added the ability to use a contains filter. Ex: *RPT*, *INV*, Etc.

1.0.58

13:10, 17 February 2009 (CST) by Nathan Kraemer

  1. Added setting to use a single instance of the iSeries .NET API. This will prevent multiple connections and disconnections wich were making the iSeries system log file large. Using this requires they are only importing into one system.

1.0.55

10:59, 24 November 2008 (CST) by Nathan Kraemer

  1. Added TempIFSFilePrefix .ini setting. This will allow users running multiple instances of Batch Import Utility to use a different file prefix when the file is uploaded using the .NET API so each instance of the Batch Import Utility doesn't overwrite another instance's temp file.

1.0.54

17:17, 10 September 2008 (Central Daylight Time) by Nathan Kraemer

  1. Fixed problem when using *PCFILEPREFIX1 - *PCFILEPREFIX10 when a file name has two delimeters without a space between them signifying a blank value. Index keys were shifting to the left because we didn't account for the missing blank space (the blank index value).

1.0.51

16:54, 27 June 2008 (Central Daylight Time) by Nathan Kraemer

  1. Added code for Use Daily Scheduled Times in the settings. This uses a 24 hour clock. It can not roll into the next day. If enabled this will start checking the input directories at the Start Time and it will finish it's pass and wait the specified wait time and then it will check to see if it has reached the End Time. If it has then it will not start until the Start Time is reached again.
  2. Enabled code for Shutdown Time in the settings. If a valid time other than 00:00 is entered then the Print Server will complete it's pass, wait the specified wait time and then shut down. If they stop and restart the Print Server it will shut down again at the same time the following day. This time is using a 24 hour clock.
