Fixes: Describes the issues resolved since general availability.
The installer program has been enhanced to support Azul Zulu JRE 11. As a result of this change, the installer has ended support for some of the old operating systems. The installer supports the following operating systems after the enhancement:*
Any operating system on a machine using a JRE that is Java SE 8 or higher (LTS version), including Oracle JDK, OpenJDK, and IBM SDK (Java) distributions.
Windows 8.1 or higher
Windows Server 2012 RC2 or higher
Important: These changes do not affect the operating system requirements of the driver.
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.
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.
Support for result set holdability has been added to the driver.
