Bug fixes

  • FIX: All Drivers – Add Support for ODBC Command Timeout
  • FIX: API Driver – Add Support for RefreshTokenFilePath (Changing Token Pattern)
  • FIX: API Driver – GUID type might cause error – Unknown SQL Type – 0
  • FIX: API Driver – Hide any Endpoint which needs {$row$} input at runtime
  • FIX: API Driver – LIMIT Clause is not honored when you execute query outside Preview Tab (i.e. Call from ODBC Apps)
  • FIX: API Driver – UPDATE / DELETE may throw error when you have space in object name and WHERE clause is used
  • FIX: Data Gateway – Code generator uses SQLNCLI rather than SQLNCLI11 for SQL Server Linked Server creation code – This cause issue with some query because wrong driver is being used
  • FIX: Data Gateway – Default Script cause issue for EXEC AT with INSERT – Error in TDS Stream – The operation could not be performed because OLE DB provider “SQLNCLI11” / “MSOLEDBSQL” for linked server “ls_Json” was unable to begin a distributed transaction
  • FIX: Data Gateway – In some cases long running HTTP requests might hang connection (This usually happens when HTTP exception happens after Caller Timeout or CommandTimeout set too low or exception happens after CommandTimeout)

  • FIX: Data Gateway – You might get random license error when too many connections made same time
  • FIX: General – Brackets around column name in UPDATE does not work or throw error (i.e. UPDATE tbl SET [my column] = 1 )

  • FIX: JDBC Bridge Driver – Add Support for TIMESTAMP_WITH_TIMEZONE JDBC Type
  • FIX: JDBC Bridge Driver – Do not invoke SQL Parser (because syntax like CTE or CAST (c as varchar) fails )
  • FIX: JDBC Bridge Driver – Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
  • FIX: JDBC Bridge Driver – Set working directory same as JDBC Driver (This helps scenario like Infor-ION driver JDBC Driver)
  • FIX: JDBC Bridge Driver – Show meaningful error rather than Pipe is broken (Capture unhandled exception right way)
