The following functions are new in this release:

Use the dashboard to help define and manage Q Replication environment

    This release includes a significant milestone in dashboard functionality: support for definitional tasks. With Version 11.3.0.0, you can create Q subscriptions for unidirectional replication. This new feature is designed to help you quickly and easily create one or many Q subscriptions. You can select from predefined Q subscription templates with platform-specific options, or you can customize a template to your environment. The dashboard offers a wizard-style interface that steps you through the selection of source and target databases, source tables, and queue maps for your Q subscription. Then you select a template to specify other major Q subscription options. The dashboard generates an ASNCLP command to create the Q subscriptions and uses an embedded version of the ASNCLP program to issue the command. To get started, select Definitions > Create > Create New and follow the steps through the wizard.

    Also as part of the dashboard's new definitional support, you can now delete one or more Q subscriptions. Select a Q Capture - Q Apply program pair to view all of the unidirectional Q subscriptions that are defined between the two programs, and then select the ones that you want to delete. The dashboard removes the selected Q subscriptions from the source and target control tables, and optionally deletes the target tables.

    This release introduces basic, unidirectional Q subscription support. Not all features that are currently supported in the Replication Center are available in this release. You can set options for target table loading, handling of unexpected conditions, automatic replication of new columns, suppression of delete operations, and automatic starting of new Q subscriptions. More advanced definitional features and functionality will be available in future releases of the Dashboard.
