Prerequisites before installing IBM Daeja ViewONE, Version 5.0.5 iFix 7

You must have IBM Daeja ViewONE, Version 5.0.5 installed.

Before you install IBM Daeja ViewONE, Version 5.0.5 iFix 7:

  • Install IBM Daeja ViewONE, Version 5.0.5.
  • Take a backup copy all the files in the client and server directories under the Daeja ViewONE Installation directory.

Installing IBM Daeja ViewONE, 5.0.5 iFix 7

IBM Daeja ViewONE, 5.0.5 iFix 7 is provided as a compressed file containing the files that are needed to update Version 5.0.5 for all supported platforms.

To install this package:

  1. Unzip the compressed file into the directory where IBM Daeja ViewONE, Version 5.0.5 was installed. This action overwrites all the files that need updates in the client/v1files directory and the server/WEB-INF/lib directory.
  2. As this package contains all the files required for all platforms, you can remove the files that are included for platforms that are not relevant to your environment. Change to the server/WEB-INF/lib directory under the Daeja ViewONE installation directory and delete the platform specific jars that are not relevant.

    There are platform specific jar files:

    • jiserver-resources-aix.jar - used for all supported AIX platforms
    • jiserver-resources-linux.jar - used for all supported Linux platforms (RHEL)
    • jiserver-resources-win32.jar - used for all supported Microsoft Windows platforms
  3. Make a backup of the Daeja ViewONE 5.0.5 files in the relevant locations in your web application server. For the server files that will be the web application's WEB-INF/lib directory. For the client, it will be where the package client files were copied to. For example v1files directory in the web application.

  4. Copy the client and server files into the relevant places in your web application and ensure that the application is deployed as per your web app server specific requirements.
  5. Verify that the correct version of IBM Daeja ViewONE is deployed to the web application server. This can be done by displaying the About Box in Daeja ViewONE (Standard, Professional and Virtual) by clicking on the ViewONE logo in the bottom right corner. Verify that the version number 5.0.5 iFix 7 is listed at the bottom of the About Box. To check the version of the Server Module, display the Image Properties dialog in Daeja ViewONE Professional when displaying a PDF or TIFF image and the Server property should be 16345. The Image Properties dialog can be displayed by pressing Shift-i.

Note: To upgrade to iFix 7, please ensure that both the client and the server are updated.

Removing IBM Daeja ViewONE, 5.0.5 iFix 7

If you want to remove the iFix 7 from your installation and revert back to the original 5.0.5 version, you need to replace the files in you installation directories with the backed up files, then copy the files into the correct places in your web application server.

If you use the IBM Daeja ViewONE Version 5.0.5 uninstallation program to remove IBM Daeja ViewONE 5.0.5 and the iFix 7 from your system, then some of the files may be left on your file system and you will need to remove them manually.

Page<N> with PDF client rendering has a limit on the number of unique PDF documents that can be referenced.

Each browser has a different limit on the number of unique PDF documents that could be included in Page<N>. Internet Explorer has a limit of 25 PDF documents, while Chrome and FireFox have a limit around 200 PDF documents. Pages that reference PDF documents before hitting the limit are rendered correctly. After the limit is reached, pages that reference PDF documents will not be rendered and will not be displayed in the viewer. The limitation on the number of unique PDF source documents referenced is now lifted.

JavaScript API to get Annotations based on status

A javaScript API has been added to get annotations from the viewer based upon their status.
getAnnotations(String json) - gets the annotations based on the status specified in the 'json' string provided. If the json entry is empty or null, all annotations present in the document will be returned. Deleted annotations will not be included

The Json format is as follows:
{"status":" "} - where ' can be replaced with one of the following 3 values:
'all' - gets all annotations currently present in the document. Deleted annotations will not be included
'new' - gets any annotations that have been newly added to the document since a save/load of annotations last occurred.
'modified' - gets any annotations that have been modified in the document since a save/load of annotations last occurred.
'deleted' - gets any annotations that have deleted in the document since a save/load of annotations last occurred.
'unchanged' - gets all annotations that are not new, modified, or deleted.
Should status be null or empty, this method will return all annotations currently present in the document. Deleted annotations will not be included.
Should status be an invalid entry, an exception will be logged (if the traceException parameter is set to true) and this method will return undefined.

Letter 'v' cannot be typed into an active text annotation

The letter 'v' cannot be typed directly into an active text annotation.

Affected users: IBM Daeja 5.0.5 iFix004 ViewONE Virtual users


Read-access password-proctected PDFs produce a corrupted output when redacting.

When a redaction is done on a password protected PDF document, a corrupted output is returned. This is because we do not support printing, redacting, and document building when the document is password protected. These operations now produce an error dialog informing that the action is unavailable for password-protected documents. When these operations are started via the ViewONE JavaScript API, and the integrator is handling event 80 (task status event), the event will return a status of 'error'. The viewer does not display the error dialog and it is up to the integrator to handle the error.

Affected users: IBM Daeja ViewONE Virtual users

IBM Daeja ViewONE 5.0.5 iFix 2

PRINTING PDF DOCUMENTS WITH ROLE BASED REDACTION ENABLED MAY TAKE LONGER TO PRINT

Printing a PDF document with role base redaction enabled may take longer to print. This was due to burning PDF to PDF being set as default for all cases. This is now only set when printing a PDF document with role based redaction turned on with no other non RBR annotations present, and if the "Print Original Size" option is selected in the print dialog.

Affected users: IBM Daeja ViewONE Virtual users


A new attribute 'autoload' on ViewONE Virtual object definition

When the viewone.js script has loaded in the browser it automatically scans the page content and initialises any viewer objects. This new attribute can be used to prevent this operation. This attribute is only necessary when the viewer is being dynamically added via JavaScript and prevents the viewone.js script from scanning the object definition. In some circumstances the object scanning can occur before the object configuration is completed, resulting in an incorrectly configured or unusable viewer object.
To prevent automatic loading of the viewer set the viewer object attribute autoload="false".

Affected users: IBM Daeja ViewONE Virtual users

Limitations: This feature is unavailable in browsers that do not support image filters.
Internet Explorer from version 9 through version 11 has no support for image filters.


ER181732 SUPPORT FOR TIFF ORIENTATION TAG

The viewer honors the Orientation tag set in a TIFF document and applies the designated rotation when rendering the image on screen. When annotations are added and saved on such a document, they maintain their positions and rotations relative to the rotated document.


HTML PARAMETER PREFETCHSIZE ADDED

Added HTML parameter, prefetchSize. This parameter can be used to reduce the number of pages that will be retrieved in the background. The actual number of pages retrieved is calculated based on the zoom level.

See https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=ibm10737269 for more details.

The valid values for this parameter are the numbers zero (0) to seven (7), where a value of 0 means no pages are retrieved in the background. The default is 7.
This parameter has no effect when the HTML parameter clientPDFTileGeneration is set to true and the document being displayed is a PDF.


HTML PARAMETER TILEXSIZE AND TILEYSIZE ADDED

The document tile size is now configurable via the parameters tileXSize and tileYSize. The default main document display is composed of image tiles that are up to 256 by 256 pixels. Using the tileXSize and tileYSize, this is now configurable from a minimum of 100 to an unlimited size. Where no value is given the default value of 256 is used. Where the maximum size is larger than the amount of pixels represented by the page, the page width at the current zoom level in pixels is used. For example, if tileXSize and tileYSize are both set to 9000, but the page is represented by 100x100 pixels, the requested tile will only be 100x100 pixels. NOTE This parameter has no effect when the HTML parameter clientPDFTileGeneration is set to true.


OPTION TO RENDER PDF DOCUMENTS ON THE CLIENT

In IBM Daeja ViewONE Virtual, the default main document display is composed of image tiles.
Documents are rendered on the server and image tiles are generated for each page.
The Viewer fetches these images from the server across the network which could produce many network requests.
The page displaying speed is bounded by the performance of the network between the client and server, and the available resources on the server.

A new option is now available which enables rendering PDF documents and generating the image tiles directly on the client inside the browser.
The PDF document is cached on the ViewONE server and then the entire document is delivered to the client where the individual pages are rendered on demand.

Moving the rendering process to the client provides a number of advantages:

  • The viewer retrieves the rendered page image from the rendering engine on the client which removes the need to fetch these images from the server, thereby reducing the network traffic.
  • Processing load on the server is reduced, freeing up resources for other tasks.
  • Navigation performance is less impacted by server load. The server is only responsible for the initial delivery of the entire document to the client.
  • Retrieving page images directly from the client improves performance of page navigation, especially where network performance is slow.
  • Rendered pages are no longer generated and cached on the server which reduces the disk access and usage.
  • The document is rendered at a higher fidelity especially when the pages are zoomed in.

Differences with server side rendering:

  • The entire document must be delivered to the client before the first page can be rendered.  
  • For PDF documents that have non-embedded fonts, the text that is rendered may differ.
    It is dependent on the operating system, browser, and fonts available on the client machine.
    This means there may be slight differences in the rendered image when viewed from different browsers or client machines.
  • Native PDF annotations may appear slightly differently.
  • Printing of PDF documents are done on the server and uses the rendering engine on the server.
    Depending on your printing options, the generated printable PDF could have slight differences to the image seen on the client.
    For more information on this refer to feature: 'Performance improvement for printing PDF documents with no/hidden annotations.'
  • For faster navigation through pages, image tiles are always generated for the 7 pages before and the 7 pages after the current page.

Limitations:

  • Invert is not supported for PDF documents rendered on the client.
  • Enhancement mode is not supported for PDF documents rendered on the client. The pages are rendered at a higher fidelity and anti-aliasing is no longer required.
  • Zooming is capped at 10 times the actual size. This is rendered at high fidelity.
    Zooming beyond this scale will stretch the image to the required size.

Enabling client rendering of PDF documents:
There is a new clientPDFTileGeneration HTML parameter to render PDF documents on the client.
Setting this to 'true' will render the document on the client. The default is false.

When the clientPDFTileGeneration parameter is enabled, the following APARs are resolved when viewing the documents:

  • IO26569 - PDF DOCUMENTS WITH EMBEDDED BARCODES MAY NOT DISPLAY
  • IO26673 - PDF CREATED FROM EXCEL MAY BE MISSING COLUMN HEADERS
  • IO26568 - LOGO DOES NOT DISPLAY IN PDF WITH ERROR MESSAGE "TIFF6 DEFLATE(65535/1) DECOMPRESSION IS NOT AVAILABLE" IN SERVER LOG FILE
  • IO26555 - PDF DOCUMENT FAILS TO DISPLAY WITH JBIG2 DECODING EXCEPTION
  • IO26319 - AN OVERLAY ON TOP OF SCANNED PDF DISPLAYS AS COLOR INVERTED
  • IO26311 - SOME MARKINGS IN PDF DOCUMENTS ARE NOT DISPLAYED CORRECTLY
  • IO26054 - SOME PDF DOCUMENTS WITH SMASKS MAY DISPLAY INCORRECTLY
  • IO26053 - PDFS WITH EMBEDDED IMAGES RESULT IN SMEARED IMAGES
  • IO26040 - PDF RENDER QUALITY IS BLURRY
  • IO26000 - SOME PDF DOCUMENTS CONTAINING EMBEDDED UNCOMPRESSED IMAGES MAYDISPLAY BLACK
  • IO25592 - FORM FIELDS MAY DISPLAY AS BLACK BOXES IN SOME PDF DOCUMENTS
  • IO25544 - SOME IMAGES IN PDF DOCUMENTS DISPLAY CORRUPTED

  • NOTE: These issues may not be be resolved when printing the document.


Improved rendering of PDF documents with specific font shading methods

Improved the rendering of some PDF documents that contain text that is drawn in a certain way that may result in failure to render with a NullPointerException output in the log.


Performance improvement for printing PDF documents with no/hidden annotations.

Print performance has been greatly improved for PDF documents, when the following criteria are met;
* The document to be printed is a PDF document
* No annotations have been applied to the document OR
* The annotations are hidden using the annotation show/hide button
* "Print Original Size" is selected

When printing a PDF document with no or hidden annotations, "Print Original Size" is selected as default.

NOTE: Print output for the above criteria may have slight visual differences to the document displayed in the viewer.


ER137200 Ability to exit sticky annotation mode from within the displayed document

The Annotation sticky mode allows the application of a selected annotation multiple times, without the need to click on the annotation button again. Sticky annotation mode is enabled either by the annotationsSticky HTML parameter, or when the user right-clicks on an annotation button. The sticky mode will remain active, even after a page change, until the user deactivates it by clicking on the active annotation button.

A new option is now available to exit the sticky mode. During the process of adding multiple annotations of the same kind a user can now end the sticky mode by right-clicking on any existing annotation. This will end the sticky mode, select the clicked annotation, and activate the edit tools for that annotation.


OPEN DOCUMENT PAGE AT TOP OF VIEW

Documents that are opened at a specific page number are now scrolled in to the view at their correct scroll location. This means that when in fit to width/height view mode, the page will be scrolled to be at the top of the view.


Improve client side performance when scrolling a document

The number of calculations taking place as we scroll a document has been decreased, allowing for a smoother scroll experience. This is most noticeable when scrolling the scroll bar via click-drag.


Improve PageN performance

When using a large amount of documents for PageN, performance has been improved significantly on inital load and page to page navigation.


Improve page render performance during page to page scrolling

The number of requests being made as a document is scrolled has been reduced, resulting in an improvement in rendering time once scrolling is stopped.


EVENT 9 (Page Changed) now states whether the page has already been retrieved.

Event 34, Page Rendered, fires each time a page is retrieved, this can be when a page is displayed or when a page that has been pre-fetched. This prevents a user from knowing whether a page they have just changed to, has been displayed or not.
EVENT 9 now contains a JSON payload that contains the page number of the page changed to as well as a flag, that indicates whether the page has already been retrieved and is available in the DOM. If this flag is true then the user knows this page has been retrieved and displayed, if the flag is false the user will have to wait for event 34 to know when the page is displayed.
The JSON payload, contained within event 9, takes the form of the following example:
{"page":10, "isPageInDOM":true}


ER172986, ER177349, ER179413, ER139344 INTRODUCING THE ABILITY TO DISABLE GROUPS OF SHORTCUTS

Parameter support has been added to pick and choose what keyboard shortcuts will be enabled in the viewer. These parameters also allow the disabling of keyboard shortcuts altogether. Setting the parameters allKeys, printKeys, fileKeys or viewKeys to false will disable those categories of shortcuts in the viewer.


Logging slows down the server

When many trace parameters are enabled, the server slows down and may become unusable. A performance improvement has been made that reduces the time taken to log messages when the system is heavily loaded.


Improvements to scrolling performance when using Document Builder

Performance decreases and the viewer potentially hangs when scrolling through pages of large documents in Document Builder mode.


ER165631 EVENT 37 DOES NOT FIRE ON A SHORTCUT KEYPRESS

When using keyboard shortcuts event 37 was not fired. With this fix users will be able to track shortcut keypresses via the javascript bridge output. This feature allows users to track and extract data from use of the system regarding keypresses. Users can track when keyboard shortcuts are activated and how frequently they are activated. An example of usage could be an office wanting to track usage of the print shortcut to be audited and reported on. This event output will allow users to dynamically configure the viewer to operate under a set of key presses.


ER165631 MISSING KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS FOR NAVIGATING ON A ZOOMED PAGE

There is missing functionality with shortcuts to navigate around on a zoomed page. This functionality was missing because the viewer does not use scrollbars for each part of the page unless you are zoomed in to an extent that the browser generates them for the user. The missing shortcuts were to navigate to the top, bottom, left, right and middle of a page either vertically or horizontally. Below are the newly added keyboard shortcuts:
Go to top of current page: CTRL + HOME
Go to end of current page: CTRL + END
Go to far left of current page: SHIFT + HOME
Go to far right of current page: SHIFT + END
Go to vertical center of current page: CTRL + SHIFT + HOME
Go to horizontal center of current page: CTRL + SHIFT + END


PRINT RANGE AVAILABLE VIA KEYBOARD SHORTCUT

It is now possible to print a range of pages using a keyboard shortcut. Press 'CTRL+P' to open the Print Dialog with the Print Range Option selected.


New setPageSelection API Call for Document Builder Mode

New API call, setPageSelection allows for the ability to select multiple pages via JavaScript Call.
setPageSelection(activePage, pageSelection)
will select the pages specified by pageSelection and will set the active page to activePage.
pageSelection is a JSON input in the form;
{"selectedPages":[1,3,5,10]}
For example;
setPageSelection(3,{"selectedPages":[1,3,5,10]})
will result in pages 1,3,5 and 10 being selected with page 3 being the active page.
If setPageSelection(3,{"selectedPages":[1,3,"5-10"]}) is called then;
pages 1,3,5,6,7,8,9 and 10 would be selected with page 3 being the active page.


New deleteDocumentPages() API call for Document Builder Mode.

New API call that allows multipage deletions in one operation.
deleteDocumentPages(firstPageToBeDeleted, lastPageToBeDeleted)
will delete the pages between and including, those specified by firstPageToBeDeleted lastPageToBeDeleted.


*Page selection updated event (87) now contains pages selected in a JSON payload. *

The page selection updated event (87) fires when the selection stops being edited. It contains a JSON payload listing the pages currently selected and whether the pipe is selected. If the pipe is true then any insertions will occur prior to the page number of the selection.

For example, if pages 1,3 and 10 are selected in the viewer, event 87 would contain the following JSON;
{"selectedPages":[{"page":{"pageNumber":1, "pipe":false}},{"page":{"pageNumber":3, "pipe":false}},{"page":{"pageNumber":10, "pipe":false}}]}

If the pipe before page 1 is selected in the viewer, the event payload would be:
{"selectedPages":[{"page":{"pageNumber":1, "pipe":true}}]}

If a page was added with this selection, the new page would be number 1, if the pipe was false, it would be page number 2.


Extra page selection updated (87) instances are fired

Extra page selection updated events are fired when in Document Builder mode.


Performance is slow on a zoomed in document

At high zoom levels, the performance when scrolling through a document is slow and memory usage increases noticeably.
Performance optimizations have been applied to resolve the above.


Additional Release Notes

Deprecation of INVERT feature

Invert is not supported for PDF documents rendered on the client; see "OPTION TO RENDER PDF DOCUMENTS ON THE CLIENT" for more information. The Invert feature is to be deprecated from the next release. This includes all associated parameters, GUI features and API methods. The invert feature is defined in the following articles: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/search/invert?scope=SSTPHR_5.0.4

jiBurner API Deprecation notice

As of IBM Daeja ViewONE Virtual Version 5.0.4, the jiburner API has been deprecated. Details of the API can be found in: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSTPHR_5.0.4/com.ibm.viewone.developing/dvodv000.htm and https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSTPHR_5.0.4/com.ibm.viewone.developing/permredact/ji/burn/package-summary.html

Document Builder

Document Builder uses repository-document and repository-annotations when the document is created

The document will be built with the source document as it is saved in the repository. The document is also built by using the annotations that are saved in the repository, unless annotations have been edited. The following scenarios explain the effects of this behavior:

Scenario 1:
  1. Two instances of the viewer are opened in document builder mode
  2. A document is loaded from a repository into each viewer window
  3. The document builder user copies a page from the document in viewer window 1 and pastes the page in to the document in viewer window 2
  4. While the document builder user is working on the documents, another user or system process alters one or both of the master documents
  5. The document builder user builds the modified document
  6. Because one or both of the master documents were altered during the document builder session, the built document contains the pages from the latest saved version of the master documents

Result: The document currently displayed in the viewer differs from the newly built document in the system. To prevent this issue occurring, the master document should be locked or checked out when it is retrieved for document builder.

Note Versioned documents will not be affected by this issue. This will only affect situations where the document that a url refers to has changed.

Scenario 2:
  1. Two instances of the viewer are opened in document builder mode
  2. A document with annotations is loaded from a repository into each viewer window
  3. The document builder user copies a page from the document in viewer window 1 and pastes the page in to the document in viewer window 2
  4. While the document builder user is working on the document, another user or system process alters one or more of the annotations used in one or both master documents
  5. The document builder user builds the modified document
  6. The built document contains the pages from the latest saved version of the master documents. For pages where the document builder user has not modified annotations in the viewer, the annotations for those pages comes from the latest saved annotations version. For pages that the user has modified the annotations in the viewer, those pages will contain annotations as seen in the viewer which may not contain the latest changes

Result: The document currently displayed in the viewer differs from the newly built document in the system. To prevent this issue occurring, the master document should be locked or checked out when it is retrieved for document builder.

Restore annotations is not supported in document builder mode

When in document builder mode, the option to restore annotations is not supported. The following scenario explains the effects of this behavior:

Scenario 1:

  1. Viewer is loaded in document builder mode
  2. A document is loaded from a repository
  3. Annotations are created by the user
  4. Restore annotations button is disabled
  5. Javascript API reloadAnnotations() is disabled

Result: The user cannot reload the annotations from the server. Newly created annotations and edited annotation edits remain.

To restore any newly created annotations, the user must take the following steps:

  1. Remove the page on which annotations are present that you want to restore
  2. Put the page with the original annotations on the clipboard (cut/copy)
  3. Paste the page into the new document location

Daeja ViewONE as an Integrated solution

When running Daeja ViewONE 5.0.5 as a component inside IBM Content Navigator, the minimum supported version of ICN is 3.0.5, unless stated otherwise by the specific ICN release.

Known problems, issues, and limitations

As problems are discovered and resolved, the IBM Support team updates the Support site. By searching the Support site, you can quickly find workarounds or solutions to problems.

The following links open queries for IBM Daeja ViewONE documents on the IBM Support site:

Any restrictions and/or limitations of the base or fix pack release and any subsequent ifixes, still apply to this release unless stated otherwise.

Comparison with native renderers

IBM Daeja ViewONE Virtual is designed to support as many file types as possible. However, the product is not able to render every type of file with the same accuracy as native applications, such as Microsoft Word. The flexibility of the viewer can lead to differences in the way that the documents are displayed between the native application and the viewer. The severity of the differences varies depending on the complexity of the file type. In particular, PDF files and Microsoft Office files are difficult to render with complete accuracy in a universal viewer.

Excel spreadsheet load times

Excel spreadsheet load times are impacted based on the size and complexity of the Excel document. In order to improve load times, IBM Daeja ViewONE does support tuning capabilities, such as breaking up the Excel document presentation into multiple pages. Please be aware, as this behaviour may not be optimal for your end user viewing experience.

Prompt to save redacted documents uses hexidecimal filename

After a document is permenantly redacted and the user selects Download, they are normally prompted to save the document with a file name based on the original un-redacted document. For instance mypresentation.ppt will default to mypresentation.tif. In this version the user might be prompted with a filename such as 41f96b20b97f431ebd4efd85245f1f72.tif instead. The user can still change the name to something more meaningful.

No pageN support in document builder mode

If a pageN document is open in the viewer, the user cannot switch to document builder mode. The user remains in the edit mode in which the document was opened. The following scenario explains the effects of this behavior:

Scenario 1:

  1. Viewer is loaded in either annotation or redaction mode
  2. A pageN document is loaded from a repository
  3. A user attempts to switch to document builder mode
  4. The user receives a message and remains in annotation or redaction mode

Result: This switch is not permitted and the user will stay in their current mode.

To enter document builder mode, the user must close the pageN document and then switch to document builder mode.

No docN support in document builder mode

DocN documents are not supported in conjunction with document builder mode. The combination of these features may result in unusual and/or unexpected behavior.

Document Builder supported file type limitations

Document builder is able to support TIFF and PDF files with the exception of email attachments. TIFF and PDF files that are attached to emails cannot be used as source files for a new document.

PDF files with access control flags set by the owner of the document cannot be used as a source document for document building where they require a password to view the document or where the owner has indicated that the content may not be copied.

Rendering of the semi transparency appears to blend between the outline and the fill

Annotations that have the semi-transparent property set to true, the transparent property set to true and a fill color set can appear to blend the line and fill colors near the edges.

Annotation with fill color set to black and set to transparent are not printed transparent

Annotations that have the transparent property set to true and a fill color set to black are not printed transparent .
