Content

V8.0.1.7

This release introduces the following features:

V8.0.1.8

This release introduces these features:

  • In-line record creation and cloning. This feature enables you to create a new record directly within a query result set or a new record with same field values as a record that you select from a query result set. For more information, refer to http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21692040.
  • Deferred loading of record histories. The loading of record histories from the server into the record form is now deferred by default until you explicitly request it. Additionally, the loading of history data from the database to the server is deferred if the database is at feature level 9 (to determine the database feature level of the schema repository and all associated user databases, open the ClearQuest Designer and refer to the tab, ClearQuest Database Admin). For more information about deferred history loading, refer to http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21959953.

V8.0.1.9

Due to a change in database profile format, profiles exported from V8.0.1.9 are not readable by older versions of ClearQuest. For more information, refer to http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21965671.

V8.0.1.10

This release introduces limited support for Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) global configuration management.

V8.0.1.11 - 8.0.1.12

Deferred reference list loading

This feature improves the performance of record loading by deferring the loading of the associated reference lists until they are actually needed. For information on controlling deferred reference list loading, refer to tech note http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21976572.

Platform support

This release introduces support for the following platforms:

  • Solaris 11, Update 3
  • AIX 7.2 and 7.1 TL4
  • WebSphere Application Server / IBM HTTP Server 8.5.5.9, 8.5.5.8, and 8.0.0.12
  • Firefox 43, 44, and 45; and Extended Support Releases 38.7 and 45
  • Chrome 49

Updating WebSphere Application Server

If you are running WebSphere Application Server 8, 8.5, or 8.5.5, internal changes that were made to ClearQuest Web in this release will require changes to your WAS installation. To update your WAS installation, take one of the following measures:

  • Install the WAS iFix for PI50993, or WAS fixpack 8.5.5.9 or 8.0.0.12 (refer to http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21969251).
  • Configure the classpath order for the ClearQuest Web application within TeamEAR to search for parent last. In the left panel of the WAS web console (for example, http(s)://hostname:12443/ibm/console), navigate to Applications, Application Types, WebSphere enterprise applications. On the list, click TeamEAR > Manage Modules > cqweb.war, then change the class load order to "Classes loaded with local class loader first (parent last)". Click OK and save, then restart the CQWeb WAS profile.

Note: If WAS 7.x is deployed, no changes are necessary.

Reporting Driver plug-ins required by Crystal Reports

For information about the Reporting Driver plug-ins required by Crystal Reports, refer to tech note http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21983906.

V8.0.1.13

This release introduces these features:

  • ClearQuest Web.

    Enables List View Query feature to run user-defined queries on the List View control. This new feature transforms the existing List View control based on user-defined queries. As a result, you are able to configure the List View control to show different results with customized columns. For more information, refer to http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21990415.

  • Single Sign On

The Single Sign On (SSO) feature is now available for ClearQuest Web. The SSO feature uses your enterprise identity management solution to streamline logins to ClearQuest Web.

  • APIs

Two new object model APIs are added to the CQSession for partially loading a record.The new APIs contain:

LoadPartialEntity method that can partially load an entity based on the record type name (entDefName) and the display name (displayName).

LoadPartialEntityByDbId method that can partially load an entity based on the record type name (entDefName) and the ID (dbID).
