New Features 3
New Features
This section lists new features in the TIBCO Business Studio™ ActiveMatrix® Decisions
Add-in.
Release 1.3.0
•
A Business Data project can now include local BOMs (in addition to BOMs
containing Case and Global Class types). A local BOM is a BOM that contains only
local classes. You can create a local BOM in two ways:
— You can create one manually in the project's Business Objects folder.
— You can add a WSDL or XSD to the project's Service Descriptors special folder.
When you do this, a local BOM representing the WSDL or XSD is automatically
generated in the project's Generated Business Objects folder. An automatically
generated local BOM is also referred to as a generated BOM.
•
Support for decisions projects being deployed separately (and not containing the
runtime artifacts) for referenced Business Data projects.
•
Business Objects asset and Service Descriptor asset are not be selected by default
when a new Decision project is created. It is now recommended to create separate
Business Data Projects for BOMs and WSDLs.
•
Decisions projects can now be included as a resource in a TIBCO Business Studio
deployment project. This allows you to generate Apache Ant™ scripts that can be
used to deploy decisions projects from a command line.
Release 1.2.0
An example script that generates DAAs for all of the sample decisions projects is also
included in the sda_samples\Deployment\CL-Build-DAA folder.
•
A new sda.generateDAA Apache Ant task allows the generation of decisions project
DAAs from the command line.
An example script that generates CLI scripts that can be used to deploy all of the
decisions sample and tutorial projects is also included in the
sda_samples\Deployment\DeploySamples folder.
•
The TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in now supports
installation on Linux.
•
The sample and tutorial projects are no longer included with the documentation as
they were in past releases. They are now installed with the software in the sda_samples
directory.

Release Notes
The samples also now include a Deployment folder that includes examples of generating
DAAs from a command line for decisions projects, as well as creating scripts to
deploy decisions projects using the command line interface (CLI).
•
Documentation for the TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in is no
longer installed with the software as it was in previous releases. It is now available on
the TIBCO Product Documentation Web site (see: TIBCO Business Studio
ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in docs).
Hotfix Dependency
This release of the TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in is dependent
on TIBCO ActiveMatrix Platform 3.3.0 Hotfix05. The hotfix is included with the TIBCO
Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in software, but must be installed
separately.
This hotfix must be installed in both the development environment (TIBCO Business
Studio) and the runtime (Administrator Server).
Also note that when installing the hotfix, ensure that you install all of the available
features. The ActiveMatrix Platform 3.3.0 HF5 feature must be installed (even if you do
not have ActiveMatrix Platform installed) on your system.
Release 1.1.1
The use of global data is now supported in decisions services created with the TIBCO
Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in.
Release 1.1.0
This release of TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in provides
compatibility with:
— TIBCO Business Studio - BPM Edition Version 3.6.0

Known Issues
This section lists known issues in this release.
Defect #
Summary/Workaround
SDA-457
Summary A null pointer exception can be reported when a decision table is edited to
add a empty condition and action
Workaround None.
SDA-378
Summary Intermittently, the Select Template dialog in the New Decision Services
Project wizard does not display properly. The Decision Table icon in the decisions flow
displays as a yellow triangular warning symbol, plus the "Start and End" and "None type
Start and End" entries in the Basic Template tree do not appear.
Workaround Click Finish to complete the decisions service creation. If the start and
end trigger type (Message or None) are not what you intended, they can be changed on
the Properties view General tab after the decisions service is created.
SDA-377
Summary Intermittently, the buttons on the Decisions Table Editor (Add, Remove,
Custom, Fit Content, Merge Rows, Duplicate Rule, and Show Text) do not display.
Workaround Hovering the mouse pointer over where the buttons are supposed to
display causes them to appear.
SDA-375
Summary Disabling a rule in a decision table by right-clicking on the row and selecting
Disable does not disable the rule. It initially greys out the rule in the table, but if you
save the table and reopen it, the rule is enabled again (not grayed out). And if you
disable a rule so that it is grayed out, and then deploy it, the runtime behavior is that the
rule is not disabled.
Workaround Disable each cell in the rule, which causes the rule to be disabled.
SDA-364
Summary If the BOM, Decision Flow, and Decision Table editors are all open, and you
delete the project from the workspace, the BOM and Decision Flow editors close, but
the Decision Table editor does not. This results in Null Pointer Exceptions if you try to
access the editor.
Workaround Close the editors before deleting the project.
SDA-347
Summary The Save selection on the File menu is intermittently not enabled after
making changes to a decisions table.
Workaround Use the Save All button on the File menu.

Defect #
Summary/Workaround
SDA-316
Summary If a decision table is named using a Java keyword (for example, "class" or
"return"), the DAA generation fails.
Workaround Avoid using a Java keyword in the name of a decision table.
SDA-266
Summary TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in does not perform
any validation to check that the system participant used by the message start event in a
decision flow has the correct shared resource information set. The only supported shared
resource information is WebService > Provider.
Workaround Make sure the shared resource information for the system participant is
WebService > Provider.
SDA-264
Summary A third-party WSDL cannot be used in a decision flow. The Import WSDL
& Select button on the property sheet for message Start events has no significance in
decision services.
Workaround Do not use third-party WSDLs.
SDA-258
Summary The TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in User's Guide not
available as Eclipse Help; it is provided in PDF and HTML format in
TIBCO_HOME\studio\3.x\sda\doc.
Workaround Access the TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in User’s
Guide from TIBCO_HOME\studio\3.x\sda\doc.
SDA-250
Summary A Null Pointer exception is displayed in the Error logs when an incompatible
data type parameter value is provided in a decision table.
Workaround None.
SDA-230
Summary The following properties have no significance in TIBCO Business Studio
ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in decision tables:
•
Effective Date
•
Expiration Date

Defect #
Summary/Workaround
SDA-225
Summary Using Deploy Module... -> Deploy DAA... to deploy a Decisions DAA fails
on a deployment server configured with the amx.bpm.app product application.
Workaround To deploy a decision service to a deployment server that also has the
amx.bpm.app application configured, you must:
1. Export your decision service to a decision service distributed application archive
(DAA).
2. Drag and drop the decision service DAA to your deployment server.
See TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in User’s Guide for more
information.
SDA-216
Summary A business object model that is no longer referenced by a decision service
still displays problem marker(s), for example, for unsupported data types. TIBCO
Business Studio does not remove the problem marker(s) automatically.
Workaround You must manually remove them by, either:
SDA-209
•
Making a change to your business object model, which causes TIBCO Business
Studio to validate the project.
•
Clean the project.
Summary TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions Add-in does not perform
any validation on data length in decision tables. If you assign a value to a decision
parameter that is too long, for example, runtime errors will occur.
Workaround To avoid runtime errors, make sure you know the data lengths required for
decision flow parameters. See the TIBCO Business Studio ActiveMatrix Decisions
Add-in User’s Guide for more information.
SDA-197
Summary A null pointer exception is reported when deploying BPM Projects that
invoke ActiveMatrix Decisions Projects. The error is harmless and has no side effects.
No further action is required.
Workaround None.
SDA-140
Summary In an exception table, if you have a cell selected in a row and then select
another cell in another row where the value in the new cell is the same as the value in the
original cell (for example, moving from a blank cell to another blank cell), the rule
property tab is not refreshed.
Workaround You should select a cell that has a different value from the one you want to
select and then select the cell you actually want.

Summary/Workaround
SDA-137
Summary In a decision table, if you have a cell selected in a row and then select another
cell in another row where the value in the new cell is the same as the value in the original
cell (for example, moving from a blank cell to another blank cell), the rule property tab
is not refreshed.
Workaround You should select a cell that has a different value from the one you want to
select and then select the cell you actually want.
SDA-135
Summary If your decision table has too many columns to display in the window and
you scroll to the right to view the other columns, the column headers are not updated.
Workaround None.
