New Features

This section provides an overview of new features for Data Archiving for Adabas Version 1.7.1.

Support for Multi-Archive Recalls

The Web Interface now supports the ability to recall multiple archives in a single operation. Select the archive(s) using Vault Browse or Vault Search and recall them easily and efficiently into a target database.

Refer to Recall Archived Data for more information on recalling archived data.

Business Object Recall

The recalling of archived data is now performed at the business object level.

As part of your archival process, you will have defined the collection of records which relate to the data you want to archive. Data Archiving for Adabas describes such a collection of records as a business object and performs it’s archiving at the business object level.

Previous versions of Data Archiving for Adabas recalled archived data at the file level, however, with Version 1.7, the recalling of archived data is now performed at the business object level ensuring business object integrity is maintained throughout the recall operation.

New Database Node

A new Databases node is now available within the Data Archiving for Adabas navigation tree.

A list of databases can be maintained within this node, representing the target databases used by the enhanced Recall process. Each Database in the list has modifiable File Settings which the Recall process uses when dynamically creating files.

Refer to Maintaining Target Databases for more information.

Adabas FDT Analysis

Data Archiving for Adabas Version 1.7 now provides an FDT analysis capability.

When browsing a Vault (Browsing Archives in a Vault) or displaying Search results (Search Results), a new "FDT Analysis" option is available from the drop-down Operations box.

Selecting an Archive and choosing this option allows the FDTs of the archived Source Files to be displayed. If multiple Archives are selected (for the same Group/Plan/Action) an automatic comparison of the FDTs is also performed and the results displayed.

For more information refer to FDT Analysis when browsing a Vault or FDT Analysis Within Results when displaying search results.
