What's New In Universal Messaging 9.7
Universal Messaging 9.7 is the successor of Universal Messaging 9.6.
Universal Messaging 9.7 includes new features, enhancements, and changes as described in the following topics.
C++ Client Improvements
New features have been added to the existing C++ client for webMethods Universal Messaging to make the client more robust and improve its performance.
Brokerless API Renamed to umTransport API and Supported in C++
The existing Brokerless API for lightweight client-client communication has been renamed to umTransport API.
This umTransport API is now available for C++ clients, in addition to the existing support for Java clients. The C++ does not presently support asynchronous communication between clients and only supports TCP sockets and TCP secure sockets as a communication transport.
Performance Improvements
The following enhancements were made to improve performance:
*New Paged channel types provide the ability to use high-speed, off-heap memory that stores events in persisted memory mapped files. This new channel type increases performance over other persisted channel types.
*JavaScript drivers have benefited from various performance improvements.
*Interest propagation: When joining channels, it is now possible to manage the interest within the channels for sending and receiving events as part of the join. This can reduce the amount of bandwidth used by only forwarding events from channels where there are subscribers to a channel of the same name on the remote realm or cluster.
Protocol Buffers Administration API
A new Java API provides the ability to manage the Protocol Buffer (Protobuf) configuration on the server. Integration Server uses this API to synchronize document types and support server-side filtering.
ninistancemanager Command Line Tool No Longer Installed within the Default Instance
The ninstancemanager tool is now installed separately from the default instance during installation. This provides more flexibility during installation and removes the dependency that the initial default instance must always be present.
Additional Support for Universal Messaging in Command Central
The following Universal Messaging administration tasks can now be performed in Command Central:
*User management
*Cluster configuration
*Memory configuration settings
*Log file access
