Enhancements and Fixed Issues in ThingWorx Platform 9.0.16
The following enhancements are part of ThingWorx Platform 9.0.16.
Enhancements
Platform
Improvements To StreamEntryProcessor
The StreamEntryProcessor uses one lock for all access to the queue, and holds the thread on a condition when the queue is full. This would create a backpressure on the underlying queues, resulting in one or more of the following causes:
ThingWorx Platform would get very slow to respond and some parts of the functionality would get into frozen state.
The persistent property queue size would not change
Event queue and/or WSExecution would start to overflow up
Devices would start to go offline.
In the thread dump, you could see lots of threads waiting on socket read, or threads waiting on other threads holding locks.
The only way out of this state is to restart ThingWorx.
Mashup Builder
Security Enhancements
Added replacements for Validator and Expression functions that include new security enhancements. Existing versions of these functions are now labeled as Not Secure.
Added more secure replacements for validators that are used to validate cell content within Grid widgets. You can disable legacy validators for a grid widget using the DisableLegacyValidation property.
The replacements include additional restrictions when using run-time objects and functions. To benefit from the latest security enhancements, we strongly recommend that you replace any non-secure functions or validators in your mashups with the latest standard version. For more information about these changes, see Replacing Non-Secure Expressions in a Mashup.
User Interface
The Reminders panel now displays reminders when an expression uses non-supported objects or functions.
In addition, non-secure expressions are highlighted in the following ways:
A message is displayed when you open a mahsup that contains non-secure expressions.
On the Functions panel, non-secure functions are grouped under a Not Secure label and awarning triangle is displayed on the panel. You can replace non-secure functions using the Replace button next to the function name.
The following fixed and known issues are part of ThingWorx Platform 9.0.16.
