Late in the 1.2.1 development cycle, several customers identified defects that they encountered in previous versions of Rational Publishing Engine. These issues affected mainly the Document Studio and Rational Reporting for Document Generation (RRDG) components ( and indirectly the RPE Web Service too) and were significant enough to warrant publishing an update immediately after version 1.2.1 was released rather than waiting until the next release. We also took this opportunity to address a number of problems our QA teams discovered in the same time frame.
Some of these issues, most notably the Dynamic Data Source performance one, were also addressed for 18.104.22.168 through the RPE 22.214.171.124 HotFix
The hotfix is available on the IBM Fix Portal here. If you use the RPE Remote Document Generation service you also need to patch it with the RRDG component. For more information about downloading and installing the hot fix, contact IBM Support.
|85596||RRDG||RGB color format not supported for XHTML text elements.|
|23707||RRDG||Poor performance with deep query nesting.|
|RRDG||If retry count is defined in the metadata of the document specification, the max number of attempts will always be made for Generic XML/REST data sources. The impact on the performance is non-existent since after the first successful request the data will be reused from the local cache.|
|RRDG||On Red Hat Linux the RPE output is saved in default temp location even though a full path is provided in the document specification.|
|86657||RRDG||“Fit tables to page width” does not work as expected for table within table if the container has a master page.|
|Studio||Delete button does not work in the Launcher perspective of Document Studio.|
|Studio||Duplicated references (variables, data sources, master pages, styles) in Document Studio outline and the conflict resolution wizard.|
|81262||Studio||Studio allows copy-pasting a query in a non-compatible context which in turns corrupts the template.|
