MANASYS Jazz Build


Install Code Sharing Certificate.  Omit key of related record


1.    MANASYS Jazz now has a Code Sharing Certificate issued by Sertigo.   This allows “Jazz Software Ltd” to be added into the table of approved suppliers, so that enterprise customers don’t have to make an exception to their security rules and allow software from an “unknown supplier” to be installed. 

2.    Omit key of related record.  I was generating a web service to update EMPLOYEE data. EMPLOYEE’s definition includes EXISTS to check referential integrity, like this: -

COPY Department;



The Web Service generation dialog give you the option of selecting fields like DEPARTMENT.DEPTNAME from the related table to include as read-only fields in the web service message. I made a mistake by selecting DEPARTMENT.DEPTNO, which is quite pointless as you already have its value in EMPLOYEE.WORKDEPT. This error is now prevented.
