Preface
TIBCO Designer is an easy to use graphical user interface for designing and
creating the integration project configurations. TIBCO Designer allows you to
drag and drop components into a project and build an Enterprise Archive (EAR)
for the project. The EAR can then be used by TIBCO Administrator™ for
deploying and running the application.

TIBCO Designer Release Notes
New Features 3
|
Release 5.6.0
Scriptable RCS Adapter
If your revision control system is not supported by TIBCO Designer, you can use
the scriptable RCS adapter to interact with a program you provide. The scriptable
RCS adapter forwards TIBCO Designer RCS operation requests to your script.
The script must conform to TIBCO Designer scripting protocol. The protocol
defines the arguments the script receives and what the script is expected to return
as results.
Limiting the Number of Global Variables
You can limit the number of global variable included in design-time libraries and
enterprise archive files by adding a property to the designer.tra file. Note that this
feature should be used with caution as not all resources report global variable
usage to TIBCO Designer. This could result in a runtime error if a needed global
variable is not included.
Specifying a Relative Path for EAR Files
When building an archive file, the file location can now be specified relative to the
directory containing the project.
Release 5.5.2
No new features have been introduced in release 5.5.2.
Release 5.5.1
No new features have been introduced in release 5.5.1.
Release 5.5.0
The TIBCO Designer property file, designer.tra, has been updated for use with
Apache Tomcat 5.5.

Release Notes
Release 5.4.0
Enhanced Schema Editor
The schema editor in TIBCO Designer has been greatly enhanced in this release.
The new schema editor is now based on the same model TIBCO BusinessWorks
uses internally. Working off the same model has many benefits.
•
Consistent error reporting
•
Support for multiple imports of same namespace from various locations
•
Enhanced source fidelity
•
Improved namespace declaration and prefix support
•
Consolidated UI

No new features have been introduced in release 5.2.1.
Introduced in Release
Release 5.2.0
AliasLibrary
The AliasLibrary resource allows you to load files stored in the file system into
your project. An AliasLibrary can be used for resources that depend on external
files, such as the Java Activity in TIBCO BusinessWorks. Resources in your project
can reference aliases in an AliasLibrary to resolve external file dependencies
that they may have at runtime or debug time.
LibraryBuilder
The LibraryBuilder resource allows you to build a design-time library that
includes resources defined in one project that can be shared with other projects.
TIBCO Designer Release Notes
New Features 5
|
Design-time library
A design-time library allows you to share or reference configurations between
different projects. You can add design-time libraries to the root project folder. A
design-time library includes one or more LibraryBuilder resources, which
include resources created in other projects that are designed to be reused.
Palette browser
The palette browser allows you to manage palettes easily. You can explore palette
groups, palettes and resource types, and enable or disable specific palettes to
display in the palette panel. The browser includes a search filter that allows you to
display only palettes that match a specific string.
Global variables filter
The global variables editor includes a search function that can be used to display
variables that match a regular expression. Global variables can only be modified
in the global variables editor.
Additional layout options
Two additional layout options are available for displaying the project tree and
palettes. In addition, you can specify the use of a drop down menu, rather than
tabs to display the Project, Global Variables, Tester and Palettes shortcuts.
You can also enable double-clicks to initiate drag and drop operations for
resources in palettes.
Revision Control System plugins
The following revision control systems are supported.
•
Microsoft Visual Source Safe (MVSS). Visual SourceSafe Version: 6.0c (Build
9447)
•
Perforce Client. Version: 2001.1.27804, Nov 14 2001.

Beta RCS plugins for CVS and ClearCase are now available.
Release 5.1.2
Palette panel redesign
The palette panel is now more space efficient, allowing you to view more palettes
and resources at the same time.
Encoding for TIBCO Messaging
You can now change the encoding for TIBCO Messaging that is specified for a
project.
Adapter tester
Allows you to choose an already installed adapter, run it, and view output in the
associated console window. Available from the Tools menu.
Adapter Tester may work with GAC and other custom type adapters, however,
TIBCO only supports this feature on packaged adapters.
Version control
Support for multiple version control systems. The corresponding menu
commands have been added to the Multi-User menu.
XML Canon
Support for XML Canon project type. Allows integration with XML Canon.
Release 5.1.0
Support for SSL setup
This includes:
•
Identity resource, which can be configured for Username/Password,
Certificate/Private Key, or Identity file.
TIBCO Designer Release Notes
New Features 7
|
•
Ability to import trusted certificates into the project in PEM format. This
alleviates problems resulting from stored files that are accessed from multiple
operating systems. New tools menu to do that.
Advanced import option
New "advanced import" option to import a resource "in-place".
Password obfuscation support
The password fields in Designer obfuscate the password text prior to saving.
Enterprise Archive resource
Allows for the configuring and creation of deployment Enterprise Archive (ear)
files. The ear file contains all the necessary information and file definitions to
deploy and run a project. The Enterprise Archive Resource contains by default a
Shared Archive. An adapter archive and a process archive can be added. The
adapter and process archives create corresponding service archives inside the ear
file.
Turbo XML editor
The Generic Adapter Configuration can now be edited in the embedded Turbo
XML editor. A button is provided in the configuration form of the resource to
launch the editor.
Project tracker palette
Provides functionality to organize and track the various tasks associated with a
project.
XML tools palette
Provides functionality to create and manage XML schemas.
Release 5.0.0
Startup window
In the startup window, you can now delete projects, configure your preferences,
and configure TIBCO Designer runtime parameters.

Release Notes
Open multiple projects
You may now have multiple projects open simultaneously. Each project is opened
in a separate TIBCO Designer Window.
Multi-file projects
In 5.0.0, multi-file projects were supported and recommended, but other project
formats were allowed. In 5.1.2, a number of menus have been changed to support
multi-file project and XML Cannon only. You have to import or export
file-repository or server-repository projects (see also Changed Functionality).
Version control support for multi-file projects
You can use TIBCO Designer together with a version control system. Currently
supported are File Sharing, and Microsoft Visual SourceSafe.
Lazy load of multi-file projects
Designer 4.x always resolved all references when loading a .dat project. For
multi-file projects, a preference controls when references are resolved. This can
significantly speed up loading the project.
Conversion from .dat to multi-file format
You can convert multi-file projects to .dat format using the Administration tab of
the Startup panel or the Tools menu in the TIBCO Designer main window.
You can also save the file in a different format using the TIBCO Designer Save As
dialog.
If you need to do batch conversion of many projects, use the RepoConvert tool.
The tool is located in <tibco_home>/tra/<version>/bin. It is documented in the
Utilities chapter of the TIBCO Administrator Server Configuration Guide, which
is included with your TIBCO Administrator release.
Validation
A number of facilities have been added that help you avoid broken references in a
project. They include:
•
Prompt upon renaming a resource. A Preference determines whether you are
prompted. Choose Edit > Preferences, then select the References tab.
•
A Project > Find Broken References menu command.
TIBCO Designer Release Notes
New Features 9
|
•
Resource > Validate Resource and Project > Validate Project for
Deployment options find broken references and other validation issues. This
includes, for example, the following:
— If an adapter includes services that use JMS sessions, and you save that
adapter in 4.x format, you are informed of the issue when you next validate
the adapter.
— If you add a timer to an adapter that does not have a session, you are
warned during validation.
— If your fields in the Transformation plugin are left unset, you are warned
during validation.
For additional information about individual resources, see the Menus chapter in
the TIBCO Designer User’s Guide.
5.0.0
JMS sessions and endpoints
Services using JMS and corresponding sessions and endpoints are now
supported.
Additional server-based repository transports
When saving a server-based project, you may choose HTTP or HTTPS (in
addition to the previously supported TIBCO Rendezvous transport options) to
connect to the repository server.
Find/Replace
You can now replace portions of a resource name when you choose Edit >
Find/Replace.
Runtime properties configuration
You can configure a project’s runtime properties using the Administration tab of
the startup window.
Text resource
A new Text resource is now in the General folder. This resource is useful for
viewing and editing text documents in the project, and for notes.

Release Notes
Image resource
A new Image resource is available to store images in the project or access built-in
icons.
Custom icon support
You can turn on custom icon support for a folder using that folder’s right-button
menu. If you do, you can use an image resource to define a custom icon.
Schema redesign
The Schema folder has been renamed to AESchemas. Open it, then drag an
AESchema resource from the palette panel into the design panel. TIBCO Designer
creates a hierarchy of schema folders for your project. See the TIBCO Designer
Adapter Schema Management Guide for more information.
Generic adapter configuration redesign
The Generic Adapter Configuration has been restructured to be more
service-centric. To create your adapter configuration, drag the service you need
into the design panel and configure it. If necessary for your configuration, you
can then open the Advanced folder and edit the associated Endpoints and
Sessions.
In previous releases of TIBCO Designer, services were not auto-created for
endpoints. If you open an adapter saved in the 4.x environment, it does not
include any services. You must use the GAC tools to create services for the
endpoint (or all endpoints).
Note that endpoints that contain multiple schemas only create a single service
pointing to the first schema found. If additional services are desired, copy the
service and assign the additional schema to the copied service.
Transformation plugin
A new Transformation Plugin resource allows you to include custom
Transformation Plugins with your project. Transformation Plugins can be used be
adapters that wish to make changes to incoming or outcoming data.
Note: You must write the code for your transformation plugin outside TIBCO
Designer. The resource is intended to allow you to include the plugin with our
project.

Changes in Functionality 13

Release 5.2.0
Naming Convention
A stricter naming convention is enforced in this release. The naming convention
prevents you from renaming an object by changing case and prevents the use of
certain characters. For example, you cannot rename an object from myobject to
MyObject. You also cannot use the following characters in an object name: | / \
" ' : ?.
The -Dstrictnames flag is available in the designer.tra file and is set to true,
which means the strict naming convention is enforced. The flag should be set to
false when opening a 5.1.3 project in TIBCO Designer 5.2 that contains object
names which use the disallowed characters. After opening the project, you should
change object names by removing the disallowed characters and change the
-Dstrictnames flag to true.
Release 5.1.2
Transformation plugin
Transformation Plugin has been renamed to Message Filter.
Open or Save
Open or Save is no longer supported for local repository and server repositories.
You must use Project>Import Full Project or Project > Export Full Project.
This change was made because most users prefer using multi-file format, which
facilities use of a version control system.
Importing a project automatically converts it. You must export it to keep the
format you were using.
Documentation
Base documentation for TIBCO Designer now consists of a User’s Guide (as
before) and a Palette Reference. The documents Adapter Resource Management
Guide, Adapter Schema Management Guide, and Repository Management Guide are
now chapters in the Palette Reference. Documentation for the XML tools palette is
included there as well.
Project Tracker
Project Tracker has been renamed to Task List.

Release Notes
Release 5.1.0
SSL configuration
The SSL configuration screens have changed completely.
Project validation
Reworked and improved project validation feature.
Advanced editor for global variables
The editor allows you to set types and descriptions for global variables. Variables
can also be configured to be settable on a per-deployment or a per-service basis.
Release 5.0.0
How adapters are opened
In previous releases, you used Generic Adapter Configuration to load in any
adapters for which no palette exists, or pre-configure adapters for which you
were writing SDK code.
Starting with TIBCO Designer 5.0, an adapter is not opened if:
•
TIBCO Designer does not have a palette for that adapter
•
The adapter has a mapper for converting from .dat file to a multi-file project.
The adapter mapper is installed into TRA as part of adapter installation. If an
adapter has a mapper, it will map to a special file extension like .sap, .psft, etc.
Without a mapper the default puts adapters in .adapter files. The Generic
Adapter Configuration opens all .adapter files.
Generic Adapter Configuration can also be used for pre-configuring SDK-based
adapters.
Reference format
References now use a URI format, which supports local references using a
#location syntax (for example, /AESChemas/foo.aeschema#class.A points to
class.A in foo.aeschema).
TIBCO Designer Release Notes
Changes in Functionality 15

Project maintenance
The Maintain a project option is no longer available from the startup menu. All
other project maintenance options have also disappeared. They are no longer
needed because multi-file projects supports version control.
JRE version
TIBCO Designer now supports JRE 1.4.1. It has been tested with both JRE 1.3.1
and 1.4.1 under Microsoft Windows and with the JRE version supported by that
platform under UNIX. For a list of supported JRE versions, see the TIBCO
Runtime Agent readme.txt file.
Generic adapter configuration changes
If you open a file with extension .adapter, it is displayed as a Generic Adapter
Configuration. A number of other things have changed:
•
You can now look at and edit the XML file which represents the adapters
configuration without exporting the adapter explicitly. This requires
knowledge of the Repository AEXML format.
WARNING: Editing the XML file is done at your risk. Be sure to verify the file.
Base XSDs can be found in tra/<version>/schema.
•
Adapter services are now stored in the project. Services were autocreated on
project load, but were never saved. Services are NOT automatically generated
from endpoints in the adapter.
•
If you convert a 4.0 repository to 5.0 format, then open it in TIBCO Designer
5.0, no services will be available by default. To create services, navigate to the
Services folder and select Create Service From Endpoint in the Services
folder.
•
Services must reference unique endpoints. It is impossible for a service to
share an endpoint with another service.
•
Endpoint property for a service is read only, as endpoints cannot be assigned
directly to services.
•
Undo for certain operations in the adapter that delete sessions or endpoints
may lose custom settings set through the session or endpoint. To reset such
values, you have to reenter the value manually.
Palette preferences
There is now a simpler mechanism for managing palettes. Installed palettes are
listed in the Palette menu. You can uncheck palettes that you don't use in the
palette panel to minimize clutter.
TIBCO Designer Release Notes
16
|
Release Notes
The palette preferences window is therefore no longer needed and has been
removed.
Menus
A number of menus have changed or been added. For example, palettes and
custom palette operations have been organized in a Palettes menu.
Layout and selection
•
The layout of the main window and the corresponding preferences have
changed.
•
The project tree now has the following selection behavior:
— The item displayed in the design panel is marked with a * in the project tree.
— The form elements displayed belong to the item showing a selection on the
tree.
— Right-click temporarily selects an item, and the previously selected item
has a border.
Opening projects
When you open a multi-file project, TIBCO Designer only loads the contents of a
project folder if the folder is accessed by the user or by a resource.
If you rename or move a folder, TIBCO Designer prompts you whether you want
to check for references. If you do, the entire project is loaded so that the checks can
be performed.
Refresh command
When you are using multi-file projects, you can use the Resource > Refresh menu
command to indicated that the resources file changed on disk and should be
reloaded.
Custom palettes
Custom palettes are now called My Palettes.
Navigation buttons
Navigation buttons for up, back, and next are now on the main tool bar.
TIBCO Designer Release Notes
Changes in Functionality 17
|
Schemas
Schemas are now grouped into AESchema resources that contain related classes,
associations, scalars, sequences, and unions.
Shared sessions
It is no longer possible for more than one adapter to use the same session. When
you migrate from a single-file .dat project to a multi-file project, sessions are
copied into each adapter.
Passwords
Passwords are now hidden in Inspect Resource windows.
Autocreation of local projects
For local projects, you can now type the project name in the File field of the Save
Project dialog to create the project. You no longer have to click New Project. For
server-based projects, you still have to click New Project.
Global variable hierarchies
When you choose Edit > Global Variables, or click Global Variables tab to the
left of the project tree, you now have two choices:
•
Assign values to predefined global variables.
•
Create a hierarchy of new variables. You use the table icon to indicate a
container for your global variables. Each container is saved as a separate
folder when you save your variables as part of a multi-file project. You can
then add variables and, optionally, assign them values.
You can also create new variables at top level.
Folders
TIBCO Designer now distinguishes between two different kinds of folders:
•
Folders created from a Folder resource in the General Palette (shows a
multi-folder icon) become folders in the file system.
•
Other folders, such as the Adapter Services folder inside an adapter
configuration are logical folders. These folders only exist in memory in the
resource that holds them. The actual data for these elements is stored in a file.

Release Notes
Adapters
When TIBCO Designer 4.x was used to configure adapters, adapter
configurations were always stored in
/tibco/private/adapter/<type>/Instance/Appname.
With TIBCO Designer 5.0, adapter configurations take into account their location
in the Designer tree. This location is appended to /tibco/private/adapter which
is exactly what TIBCO Adapter SDK expects. Therefore, the multi-file project
name (with the extension after the dot removed) can be passed directly to TIBCO
Adapter SDK.
Reference formats
Reference formats have changed. In earlier releases, reference were always
resource paths, now they are URIs.
Endpoint references
For Generic Adapter Configuration endpoint references, sharing is no longer
allowed.
Subject name
For Generic Adapter Configuration, the default subject name is not updated when
the adapter instance name changes.

Defect #
Summary
5.6.1
1-97Y9Y4
TIBCO Designer failed to fully write the local cache to the .tibco-dav
folder and consequently failed to open a project from TIBCO XML
Canon.
To address this issue, you may need to add the following property to
the designer.tra file and increase the timeout <N> to a value greater
than 40. For example, for a very slow connection, you may want to
replace <N> with 1200.
1. Open {TIBCO_HOME}/designer/5.6/bin/designer.tra.
2. Add the following lines just above the
"*** Do NOT modify beyond this line ***"
banner:
# Adds the time-out flag to the TIBCO WebDAV connector
# Uncomment the following property to change the default
# timeout (40 seconds) to <N> seconds.
java.property.com.tibco.xmlcanon.davstore.timeout=<N>
3. Restart TIBCO Designer after modifying the property.

Summary/Workaround
1-6NHJ8D

error message similar to the following appears:
Starting up...
Validating project...
Found 2 errors and 0 warnings
**** <Unknown Category> ****

com.tibco.ae.tools.designer.cmdline.ValidateProject.execute(Valid
ateProject.java:120)
at
com.tibco.ae.tools.designer.cmdline.ValidateProject.main(Validate
Project.java:20)
The problem can also occur when validating a project that was loaded when the
Preferences dialog, Startup Options section, Load full project option was cleared.
Workaround Use TIBCO Designer to validate the project, but before loading the
project ensure that the entire project is loaded:

Defect #
Summary/Workaround
1-3DEM4P
Summary On Unix systems, for the Clear Case and PVCS revision control
systems, the Version Comment and Add to RCS dialogs display at the same time
when adding a global variable group.
The Version Comment dialog display first and then the Add to RCS status dialog
displays. Because the Version Comment dialog is hidden behind the Designer
main window and only the Add to RCS status dialog is visible, you cannot
access the Version Comment dialog, which must be used before Designer can
continue.
Workaround Drag the dialog boxes to one side until the Version Comment
dialog is visible. Enter a comment and click OK.
1-3LD5W8
Summary On AIX and HP-UX platforms, after creating or opening a project and
then selecting a resource from the project tree, the resource name is not visible in
the project tree.
Workaround Click a different resource name and the hidden resource name will
appear.
1-4XWTAX
Summary When adding a global variable group to the PVCS revision control
system, the Global Variables dialog becomes blank. The operation, however,
succeeds.
Workaround To view the variables, close the dialog and reopen it.
1-2TCUKR
Summary The MUI JA files for adapters are installed in the wrong location.
Workaround The MUI JA files are installed in
<install-path>\tibco\tra\5.4\lib. Move the files to
<install-path>\tibco\tra\5.4\lib\palettes.
SR-1-1G4B2H
Summary If you use TIBCO Designer 5.x, then return to using TIBCO Designer
4.x, and try to use a server-based project, you will get an error: “Designer was
unable to load the names of available projects”. You cannot continue with your
work.
Cause: The timeout has changed from milliseconds (4.x) to seconds (5.x) and the
connection times out immediately because the same preference file is used.
Workaround Select the 4.x server-based project and change the timeout under
Advanced Settings.
