PO01449, SPMP-10717 - Stop processing of all precedents recorded during execution of PDCConversion batch

Previously, when the PDCConversion batch job executed, precedents were raised by CER.

This resulted in the following warning message being output to the log file at the end of each chunk:

"One or more precedent changes have been written to the currently-open precedent change set for batch processing. Please arrange for a run of the precedent change set batch processing suite to be scheduled."

The constant outputting of this log message can render the log file un-readable to a customer. Also the precedents being raised served no purpose when produced by the PDCConversion batch job.

This enhancement disables raising of all precedents during the execution of the PDCConversion batch. This change has a small performance improvement and also substantially reduces the amount of logging output by the PDCConversion batch process.

To verify precedents are not being raised following this enhancement you can use the following steps.

1. Execute select count(*) from precedentchangeitem;

2. Run PDCConversion batch job

3. Execute select count(*) from precedentchangeitem;

The counts should not increase.

CEF - Dynamic Evidence

Evidence Maintenance
CDP-1128 - EvidenceTransactionalCache.invalidationCache() floods the system with cache invalidation messages

Dynamic Evidence Create, Read and Modify operations maintain a Transaction cache to provide quick access to commonly used items throughout that operation's transaction. At the end of the operation the cache is invalidated.

Previously, when the Dynamic Evidence Transaction Cache was invalidated, a global cache invalid message was incorrectly posted via 'CacheManagerEjb.postInvalidationMessage()'. This unnecessary broadcast effectively rendered the Cúram cache invalidation topic unusable under high load conditions.

The global cache invalidation message is no longer posted when Dynamic Evidence Transaction cache is invalidated so the Cúram cache invalidation topic will no longer be impacted during high load conditions


Income Support

PO00867, CGISS-4283 - Transfer to Trust record cannot be added

Previously, transfer to trust evidence could not be recorded due to a validation being incorrectly displayed.

"Transfer to Trust parent evidence which is ownership is not active"

This message is now only displayed if Ownership evidence is not active. Once all evidence is active, transfer to trust evidence can now be recorded.

CGISS-6358 - Optimizing the "CGISS Relationship Conversion" batch job query

Previously, the "CGISS Relationship Conversion" batch job considered integrated cases which had dynamic household relationship evidence. The upgrade helper should only upgrade cases which have non dynamic relationship evidence.

This issue has been resolved.

CGISS-6360 - "CGISS Relationship Conversion" batch issue

Previously, the batch job "CGISS Relationship Conversion" used the maximum number of rows specified by the 'curam.db.readmultimax' property. The batch job should process all records.

This issue has been resolved and the additional parameter, "-Djava.extra.jvmargs="-Dcuram.db.readmultimax=0" does not need to be specified to execute the batch job.
