The driver has been enhanced to include timestamp in the Spy and JDBC packet logs by default. If required, you can disable the timestamp logging by specifying the following at connection: For Spy logs, set spyAttributes=(log=(file)Spy.log;timestamp=no) and for JDBC packet logs, set ddtdbg.ProtocolTraceShowTime=false.
Interactive SQL for JDBC (JDBCISQL) is now installed with the product.
JDBCISQL is a command-line interface that supports connecting your driver
to a data source, executing SQL statements and retrieving results in a
terminal. This tool provides a method to quickly test your drivers in an
environment that does not support GUIs.
Added the RegisterStatementPoolMonitorMBean connection property. Note that the driver no longer registers the Statement Pool Monitor as a JMX MBean by default. You must set RegisterStatementPoolMonitorMBean to true to register the Statement Pool Monitor and manage statement pooling with standard JMX API calls.
Java SE 7 has reached the end of its product life cycle and will no longer
receive generally available security updates. As a result, the drivers will no
longer support JVMs that are version Java SE 7 or earlier. Support for
distributed versions of Java SE 7 and earlier will also end, including
IBM SDK (Java Edition).
If you attempt to execute a DatabaseMetadata API with catalogName filter set as '' (Empty String) against Informix 14.1, the API will return the full list of objects instead of an empty result. All DatabaseMetadata APIs, such as getTables() and getColumns(), which support catalogName as filter are affected by this behavior.
