CloverETL 4.6 simplifies job development by introducing "auto debugging," an implicit collection of data samples on all edges. You no longer need to manually control debugging on and off on individual edges.
Additionally, new UI controls in Event Listeners in the Server Console make monitoring of events easier. We've also developed a new interactive tutorial to help beginners grasp the basics quickly and without consulting boring manuals. Finally, we're adding a new option to SalesforceBulkReader to read deleted/archived records.
You no longer have to turn "debugging" mode on to collect sample data on edges during development—it's on by default now.
All edges now collect a sample (up to the first 1,000 records/1MB) of data whenever the transformation is running in Designer. When you deploy the transformation to Server, no edge data is collected (this was the case in previous versions too). Additional debug modes (debug all records/custom sampling and filtering/turn off completely) are available.
In existing graphs, edges with debug mode enabled in earlier versions will be automatically converted to "Debug all records" mode, retaining functionality as expected.
In Event Listeners, you can now view monitoring details (last execution time, number of successful and failed executions) for all your listeners.
Filtering and browsing Execution History with lots of records (hundreds of thousands) is now much faster.
You can now read deleted records using SalesforceBulkReader component.
SalesforceBulkReader has a new advanced configuration option called "Read mode" that allows you to retrieve all records, including deleted and archived ones.
In Filter dialog, you now can use drag&drop with Dictionary entries.
We have simplified the Edit Component dialog, removing the Ports tab (see component tooltip for these details) and hiding rarely used options under the "Runtime" category.
We're making it easier for new users to get familiar with the core concepts of CloverETL in a guided tutorial that's available directly from the welcome page (Help > Welcome, if you want to try it yourself). We hope the addition of this tutorial will help newcomers learn the basics quickly without having to leave the Designer environment for a (rather boring) study before being able to design their own data transformations.
We've made some minor changes that might affect backwards compatibility.
Newly created projects and sandboxes now have default encoding set to UTF-8 (previously it was system dependent).
Also, we've updated the bundled Java in Designer to JDK 8u121.
To help you install or upgrade to this version, we've prepared a simple checklist:
