With CloverDX 5.0, the first “CloverDX” release after rebranding from “CloverETL”, we have completely overhauled the Server user interface, bringing a modern look and vast improvements in usability.
The Server Console in CloverDX 5.0 is totally redesigned with these key goals in mind:
Easy orientation in modules by unifying their layout
Easy navigation between modules
More space for actual content
Comfortable user interactions (Create, Edit, …)
We have also improved how configuration issues in the Worker (see CloverETL 4.9) are reported.
We have completely overhauled the Server Console user interface, bringing a modern look, easier orientation and more real estate for content.
The available Server modules remain mostly unchanged, so orienting around the new version should take only a few moments.
Key changes to the Server Console layout:
Main menu has moved from the top to the left, allowing more vertical space for content
Some modules are organized into logical groups for better navigation
The screen is now made up of independent viewports that scroll only where needed
The Schedules module (formerly labelled “Scheduling”) has been redesigned to better serve complex, data-intensive scenarios. You no longer need to work between Scheduling and Executions History modules to understand what is going on.
With the new Schedules module, you can see the health of your scheduled jobs by simply glancing over the schedules list or filtering for “Errors only” - showing only jobs with recent failures (last execution failure).
There is also a failure indicator in the menu to quickly see problems that occurred and a direct navigation from the schedule to Executions History. All these improvements speed up the investigation of possible problems and therefore helps with quicker resolution.
Improved CRON Expression Editor
The Schedules module contains a new CRON expression editor that supports quick editing for advanced users but also provides instant validation and feedback to help users set the right schedule without unpleasant surprises.
The Worker—an isolated runtime process for execution jobs—was introduced in CloverETL 4.9. With CloverDX 5.0, we have made its configuration more transparent and less error-prone. The new interface instantly validates Worker configuration and suggests potential issues, making the upgrade process from pre-Worker versions (CloverETL 4.8 or earlier) much smoother.
As of CloverDX 5.0 we will no longer be publishing the free Designer Community Edition. We are fully committing all our efforts to the CloverDX Data Integration Platform. You can try the full version of the CloverDX Designer for free for 45 days here.
[Java memory configuration] As of version 5.0, CloverDX uses G1 garbage collector as a default, even for Java 8. This significantly improves stability when using CloverDX with large heaps.
With the new version of CloverDX we have updated the list of supported application containers and Java versions. You can now benefit from the most recent versions.

We have also updated the CloverDX Designer to Eclipse 4.7 (Oxygen).
