  • 1.  CA 2E 8.8 release date?

    Posted May 22, 2019 09:53 AM

    Hi All,

     

    I'm curious (who isn't...?  ) if there's already a release date for the next 2E release 8.8.  Was there any announcement about this from the recent conference?

     

    Thank you so much!

    I don't remember seeing a release date.  Even so, everything from Broadcom/CA has the legalease at the beginning that says nothing we share here is binding but i would expect sometime between now and the next conference.  But don't quote me  :).

    Thank you for your interest in CA 2E next release/ refresh pack.
    At the recent concluded 10th Annual Plex/2E developer conference, we did demo what to expect in the upcoming refresh pack on 2E and there was certainly lot of excitement.

    Some of the new features to be rolled out in this refresh pack include:
    • REST Enablement - 
      • Make it easier to consume web services by having meaningful names in WSDL
      • Restful webservice deployment using   input source *PATH_PARA
    • Improve SQL Support by adding enhanced support for SQL
      • Optimize for "N" Rows
      • Data access by file type - RLA for DDS   and SQL for DDL/SQL files

    Now coming to the specific question on the timing, we are gunning for a release in the second half of CY'2019 and that's certainly much ahead of the next conference for sure :) . Off course our legal slide still applies, thank you for binging this up @Eamonn Foley

    One question I want to add, on the improve SQL support will that include 2e generating Select <fieldname> as an enhancement?

    Hi,

    second half of CY'2019 did not happen.
    I attended a webcast about this refresh and it was said to be release Q1'2020.
    Is Q1'2020 still on, or should we brace ourselves for a later release?

    We are coming closer to Beta. Please let me know if you would like to participate in Beta validation. CA 2E next release ETA is Q2 CY 2020. This is for your information purposes only as release timeline may change until we announce general availability of the release. We will let you know in case of change in timeline

    Thanks,
