Failover, refer to TIBCO Enterprise Message Service User ’s Guide.
After enabling this checkbox you can pass the provider URL in the form of UFO.
For example: "tcp://serverA:7222+tcp://serverB:7222" where serverA and
serverB are two EMS servers configured for Unshared State Failover.

Release 5.8
The following are new features in this release:
SOAP Undescribed Headers
Undescribed headers support is added on the Service Resource and Partner Link
Configuration. Undescribed headers are SOAP headers that may appear in the
SOAP message but are not part of the WSDL binding description.
SOAP Fault Sub-Element Propagation
This feature allows the SOAP Fault sub-elements - faultcode, faultstring, and
faultactor to be specified on SOAP faults generated by TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks. With this mechanism the SOAP faults generated within the
TIBCO ActiveMatrix Business Works process can be propagated to the framework
in which it is embedded. To configure and propagate the SOAP fault context, the
SOAP endpoint configuration user interface for the service and partner link
configuration resources are enhanced to include the configuration of fault context.

Release Notes
Applying Policy on a Partner Link Configuration
Security policies can be applied to the endpoint operation of a partner link
defined in a Partner Link Configuration resource.
Associating Policy with Invoke Partner Activity
Invoke Partner activity is bound using the partner links and the activity can now
support message level security.
Release 5.7.1
This release does not introduce any new features.
Release 5.7.0
The following are new features in this release:
MTOM
This is a new mechanism for serializing SOAP messages with attachments.
Receive Partner Notification Activity
The notification partner services can be invoked from TIBCO BusinessWorks
processes using the Receive Partner Notification activity. This activity resides in
the Service Palette and you can invoke services on Partners defined in the process.
As the Invoke activity depends only on a Partner, it is transport agnostic and the
transport bindings can be specified in a Partner link configuration Resource.
Support for XSLT 2.0 (Saxon engine)
SaxonB 9.0 is exposed as a third party engine in XML Transform activity to
support XSLT 2.0 transformations.
HTTP Components
Apache project called “HTTP Components” provides a lighter-weight and more
scalable HTTP server implementation based on NIO. The scope of this feature is
HTTP Shared resource in BW HTTP plug-in. This resource gets used by all the
event sources which are configured to receive events on http transport and so has
a runtime impact on the performance of those event sources.

JDBC Connection Pool metrics
The JDBC connection pool metrics can be viewed through the Hawk Interface and
the JMX. The metrics contains the information about:
•
all the Database Connections opened by a single BW engine instance.
•
all the Open connections - will consist of JDBC Connection Name, username
and the owner of the connection. The owner of the connection would contain
the Activity Name and the Job-id for which the connection is acquired.
•
all the Idle connections - will consist of JDBC Connection Name, username
and the Idle Time in minutes
Activity elapsed time
The new feature allows the user to view the Elapsed time for all the JDBC
activities in their output Schema. You can configure the Elapsed Time property
per activity or for all the JDBC activities for which you want the elapsed time to
be in the output schema. Elapsed time is an optional field and is of ‘long’ data
type.
This is not a recommended method to gather statistics for the elapsed time.
Outbound Security Context Propagation
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks can propagate the incoming security context
information from TIBCO ActiveMatrix Policy Manager while invoking services
using SOAP Request Reply.
Based on the transport used by SOAP Request Reply it propagates the security
context information (user document), either as HTTP Header or JMS application
property. The header name or the JMS property name is the same which is used in
the inbound message.
Support for JMS properties for Inbound SOAP Messages
In this release Service resource and SOAP event source provide support for JMS
application properties.
Platform Support
This following platforms are supported in this release.
•
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 5.1

New Features in TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 5.6
The following sections describe the new features in this release.
Change in Product Name
TIBCO BusinessWorks has been rebranded as TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks. ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 5.6 is backward compatible with the
earlier 5.x versions of BusinessWorks.
Platform Support
HPUX 11i v3/11.31 on PA-RISC and IA-64/Itanium is now supported.
Service Container
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks now offers a new feature, service container
in this release. Once you enable a service container, you can upload multiple EAR
files in the same container. All the processes running in a service container are
isolated and independent of each other. So if there is a need to add new services or
upgrade the existing services in future, you can:
•
deploy additional EAR in the same service container without bringing down
all the running services.
•
upgrade an existing process already running in a service container without
affecting all the other processes running in the same service container.
To know more about the service container feature, read the TIBCO BusinessWorks
Service Container chapter in TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Administration.
Partner Service Invocation
To manage lifecycle of BW service through ActiveMatrix administrator, the BW
services need to invoke and be invoked by other TIBCO ActiveMatrix
components.
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks introduces the following mechanism to
invoke services from BW processes using abstract partner definitions:
•
Partner tab on the BW process—Defines a list of partners that can be
referenced in the Process. Partners provide services which are defined by
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Release Notes
New Features 13
|
WSDL Interfaces. Partners provide well defined services and BW can invoke
Partners over one of multiple transport channels.
•
Partner Link Configuration resource—Associates abstract partner portTypes
with concrete port bindings. This allows you to easily link to new partner
services without changing the process definitions that invoke the partners.
•
Invoke Partner activity—Invokes Partner services from BW processes. It uses
abstract Partner definitions for service invocation. Transport binding
information for Partner definitions will be provided in the Service Resource.
•
Partner Binding—BW type Service Resources allow Partners to be bound to
transport through the Service Resource’s Partner Binding tab.
To know more about the partner service invocation feature, read the TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Palette Reference and TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Process Design Guide.
XPath Functions for BusinessWorks Process Information
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks provides functions in the XPath Formula
builder that can be used to fetch process related information for any activity. The
available functions are getCurrentProcessName(processID),
getCurrentActivityName(processID), and getHostName().
See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Process Design Guide for details about the
XPath functions for BusinessWorks process information.
Built-in Resource Provider
The Built-in resource provider enables the engine to listen on the configured port
to retrieve resources such as WSDL, XSD, WSIL, or any other file, without
creating a RetrieveResource process. You can set the following property in
bwengine.xml to enable the Built-in resource provider:
bw.platform.services.retrieveresources.Enabled = true
The Built-in resource provider feature can be controlled by setting several other
properties in bwengine.xml. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Palette
Reference for details.
Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) Login
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks supports authentication using Java
Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS). By default, JAAS login is not
available in BusinessWorks. You can set the following property in bwengine.tra
to enable JAAS login:
java.property.com.tibco.bw.security.login.jaas=true
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Release Notes

Release Notes
See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Process Design Guide for details.
JMS Local Transaction
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks supports JMS local transactions in the JMS
plug-in. JMS local transaction is a new transaction group type into which JMS
activities can be added. A JMS process starter can also be linked to this group. At
runtime, the underlying JMS activities uses the same transacted JMS session to
provide transaction semantics for messages sent and received by the JMS
activities. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Process Design Guide for details.
JDBC Palette
The JDBC Call Procedure, Query and Update activities now support Oracle
Objects, BLOB and CLOB, PLS_INTEGER, and PL/SQL table datatypes. The
input schema for the JDBC Query activity and the input and output schemas for
the JDBC Call Procedure activity display the components of these complex data
types in a tree structure.
To support the PLS_INTEGER data type, the driver jar files need to be added to
the TIBCO_HOME\tpcl\5.5\jdbc\lib location or the absolute path to the jar file
has to be provided to the TIBCO environment.
Security Context Propagation from TIBCO Policy Manager
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks populates the security context for Service
resource or SOAP Event Source activity with the security information sent by
TIBCO ActiveMatrix Policy Manager. Depending on the transport, the security
information is sent either as an HTTP header or a JMS Message property. See
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Process Design Guide for details.
New Features in TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.4
The following sections describe the new features in this release.
Platform Support
SQL Server 2005 and the IBM DB2 Universal Database driver on AS/400 are now
supported by the activities in the JDBC palette.
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Release Notes
New Features 15
|
Monitoring XA Transactions
New TIBCO Hawk microagent methods have been added to monitor XA
transaction activity when using TIBCO XA Transaction Manager or Arjuna
Transaction Manager. The ListInflightTransaction() method returns
information about currently active transactions and the
GetTransactionStatistics() method returns information for all transactions
since the process engine started. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks
Administration for more information.
Policy Palette
The Security Policy resource now allows you to specify a Java object for
implementing custom password lookup functions. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Process Design Guide and TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Palette
Reference for more information.
Rendezvous Transport
For activities that can use the TIBCO Rendezvous RVCMQ transport (for
example, activities in the Rendezvous or ActiveEnterprise Adapter palettes), the
Config.Tibrv.cmQueueTransport.TaskBacklogLimitInBytes property has
been introduced to set the backlog limit (in bytes) of the task scheduler for the
transport. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Administration for more
information.
Security Context
The SOAP Event Source process starter and the Service resource can now specify
that the security context of the incoming message is available to the process
instance. The security context includes items such as the username and password
of the client when basic authentication is used, or it can include the X509
certificate when Web Service Security policies are used. SeeTIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Palette Reference for more information about the security context in
the SOAP Event Source and Service resources.

Release Notes
Changes in Functionality
This section lists changes in functionality since the last major (5.0) release of this
product.
Release 5.11
This section lists changes to existing product functionality in this release.
The are no changes in functionality in this release.
Release 5.10
This section lists changes to existing product functionality in this release.
TIBCO EMS Explicit — (Only Available for TIBCO Enterprise Message Service)
A message which is not acknowledged using the Confirm activity before the
process instance ends, is redelivered instead of all messages in the session. The
session is not blocked and one session handles all incoming messages for each
process instance.
In the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 5.10 release, there is a change in the
behavior of this feature. Now only the messages that are not confirmed, would be
redelivered.
Partner Link Configuration Activity
When Partner Link Configuration is created, the fields get populated with the
values from the concrete WSDL. You can override the values in Partner Link
Configuration. If the concrete WSDL is changed after configuring Partner Link
Configuration, the changes will not be reflected in the Partner Link
Configuration.
Release 5.9.3
This section lists changes to existing product functionality in this release.
Full Installer
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 5.9.3 is a full installer and does not need a
prior installation of 5.9.0 or 5.9.2 version.

ActiveEnterprise Adapter Palette
Adapter Subscriber behavior was different than the JMS Receiver when Auto
confirm was not selected. This has been fixed in Adapter Subscriber (JIRA ID:
BW-8970). Now, if the checkbox is not selected then the message will be
acknowledged at a later point by using the Confirm activity. If the message is not
confirmed before the process instance ends, the message is redelivered and a new
process instance is created to handle the new incoming message. Ensure that your
process definition confirms the message.

Release Notes
HTTP Palette
You can flush the output after every Send HTTP Response activity, instead of
buffering the response and sending it, using the new Flush Response option on
the Configuration tab.
The HTTP connection parameters are now exposed for data compression and
performance tuning. You can now specify the parameters in the Advanced tab of
the HTTP Connection Shared Resource or in the bwengine.tra file. HTTP
connection parameters for IP-based access control are available as custom engine
properties, which you can specify in the bwengine.tra file. See TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Palette Reference for details.
Parse Palette
When parsing large files, you can use the Continue on Error option in the
ParseData activity to continue processing the file even after encountering an error.
In previous releases, when parsing large files if an error was encountered, the
Parse Data activity stopped processing the file and exited with an error.
Also, a custom line separator is supported in the Data Format shared resource
with the new Line Separator field.
Changes in 5.4
This section lists changes to existing product functionality in release 5.4.
SSL Cipher Suites
Some activities that use SSL connections can specify the Strong Cipher Suites only
field. In previous releases, checking this field did not always expose the strongest
cipher suites available. The custom engine property
bw.plugin.security..minstrength has been introduced to allow you to
specify the minimum strength of the cipher suites you wish to use. See TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Administration for more information.
HTTP Palette
Multiple name/value pairs can be sent in the Cookie header element of the Send
HTTP Request activity. Also, the custom engine property
bw.plugin.http.protocol.single-cookie-header has been added to specify
that multiple cookies should be combined into one header element when the
request is sent. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Palette Reference and TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Administration for more information.
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Release Notes
Changes in Functionality 19
|
Mail Palette
In previous releases, the Receive Mail activity threw exceptions when receiving
email, if the email was in rich text format and the first mime part contained nested
mime sub parts. You can fix this by setting the
bw.plugin.mail.receiverFlattenNestedAttachments property to true
which flattens out the message structure so that all parts are siblings.
In previous releases, the Receive Mail activity did not handle incoming mime
messages with mime types application/*, audio/*, video/*, or image/*. While
fetching these types of emails, TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks threw
exceptions. You can fix this by setting the
bw.plugin.mail.receiverHandleDiscreteTypes property to true.
See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Administration for more information.
JMS Palette
The behavior of the Client ID field in JMS connections has been changed.
Previously, client IDs were automatically generated in a variety of circumstances.
Now, there is a field named Auto-Generate Client ID that controls whether client
IDs are automatically generated or not. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks
Palette Reference for more information about the new behavior of the fields in the
JMS Connection resource.
For activities that receive JMS messages (for example, JMS Queue Receiver or
Wait for JMS Topic Message), the Receiver Timeout field has been added to the
Advanced tab to allow you to specify a polling interval for the receiver. The
custom engine property bw.plugin.jms.receiverTimeout has also been added
to allow you to specify a default timeout for all JMS receiver activities. See TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Palette Reference and TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Administration for more information.
Rendezvous Palette
The Publish Rendezvous Message activity now has a replySubject element in the
activity input. This allows you to specify a reply subject for the message so that a
Wait For Rendezvous Message activity later in the process can receive replies to
the message.

Supported Drivers That Are Not Bundled
The JDBC Connection resource also lists the following drivers in the drop-down
list:
•
oracle.JDBC.driver.OracleDriver (oci)
•
oracle.JDBC.driver.OracleDriver (thin)
•
com.sybase.jdbc2.jdbc.SybDriver
•
com.timesten.jdbc.TimesTenDriver
•
com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver
•
com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
These drivers are officially supported, but they are not bundled with TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks. You must download and configure these drivers
before using them in the JDBC Connection resource. Also, you must add the
driver location to the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks classpath before using
them.
Unsupported Drivers
There are other JDBC 2.0-compliant drivers listed in the JDBC Connection
resource. These drivers should work correctly, but they are not officially
supported. You must download and configure these drivers because they are not
included with TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks. These drivers are the
following:
•
sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver
•
weblogic.jdbc.mssqlserver4.Driver
You can download, install, and use other JDBC drivers, but TIBCO does not
guarantee the drivers will function properly with TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks. To use an unsupported driver, perform the following:
1. Download the JDBC driver and copy the required JAR files to a location in the
classpath of the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Engine. For example,
you can copy the files to the following location:
TIBCO_HOME/tpcl/<version>/jdbc.
2. In the JDBC Connection resource, choose Select Driver from the drop-down
list in the JDBC Driver field and type in the name of the driver class in the text
box within that field. Then, type in the correct URL in the Database URL field
and specify the other fields in the resource.

endpoint in the Service resource is applied to the request.
— While invoking services through the ActiveMatrix
environment, any context mappings with SOAP input headers,
other than the ones mapped from the input message's message
parts, fail at runtime. This is due to the restriction in
ActiveMatrix to configure soap headers.
— While invoking services through the ActiveMatrix

BW-14097
New methods have been added in TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks for user written Java code to access component
logging in TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Service Engine. Till
now, the log4j and slf4j loggers created by users in their custom java
code would write to the ActiveMatrix Node logs when the TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks component was running inside
ActiveMatrix. However, to enable users to write to the application
component logs instead, the following APIs are added in
com.tibco.share.util.BWLoggerFactory class:
1. org.apache.log4j.Logger getLoggerLog4j(String loggerName)
This method takes a logger name and returns a log4j logger that
has been configured to write to the application component logs.
2. org.slf4j.Logger BWLoggerFactory.getLoggerSlf4j(String
loggerName)
This method takes a logger name and returns an slf4j logger that
has been configured to write to the application component logs.
The slf4j logger is the recommended logger to use.
Additionally, for newly created Java Code activities, these methods
can be invoked directly using the following method calls in the user
code:
•
org.apache.log4j.Logger getLoggerLog4j(String
loggerName)
•
org.slf4j.Logger getLoggerSlf4j(String loggerName)
These methods have been added to the auto-generated code for Java
Code activities. They are created only for newly created Java Code
activities. Existing Java Code activities should directly use the
BWLoggerFactory class.

When one class was declared as a class member of the other and both

General
Summary (BW-15514): Occasionally, the ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks engine
does not start on HP-IA platform in TIBCO Administrator.
Workaround: Open application.tra and update
java.thread.stack.size=256K to java.thread.stack.size=512K.
Summary (BW-15189): When publishing Japanese character message, an
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException is encountered on tibrvnative.jar and
tibrvnativesd.jar.
Workaround: Customers using any character set other than ISO 8859-1 should
upgrade to TIBCO Rendezvous hotfix (TIBCO Rendezvous 8.3.2 HF6 or 8.4.0
HF2 to resolve) for this issue.
Summary (BW-15187): The tibrvnative.jar and tibrvnativesd.jar do
not support native encoding MS932.
Workaround: Customers using any character set other than ISO 8859-1 should
upgrade to TIBCO Rendezvous hotfix (TIBCO Rendezvous 8.3.2 HF6 or 8.4.0
HF2 to resolve) for this issue.
Summary (BW-13398): "AMX Endpoint" is visible while configuring the
endpoint type in Service Resource and Partner Link Configuration.
Workaround: Use "AMX Endpoint" only when working with ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Service Engine in the TIBCO ActiveMatrix environment.
Summary (BW-13586): There are some spurious paths getting added in the
‘.tra’ file which do not have any impact.
Workaround: None or remove them manually remove.
MimeParts require Content-Type header for the "unknown" MimeTypes
(1-7TLPRZ): Currently the MimeParts require Content-Type header for the
"unknown" MimeTypes. This is incorrect according to RFC 822 and RFC 1341
as MimeParts do not require any headers.
Workaround: None.
Security Policies not associated with Services (1-9F267G): The Security
Policies cannot be associated with Services through Invoke Partner activity.
Workaround: None.

ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks not using the provided credentials
(Username/Password) when JNDI Lookup is configured through a LDAP
connection: When a JNDI Lookup is configured through a LDAP connection
with the connection factory objects stored in LDAP, the LDAP/JNDI
credentials used to connect to EMS instance result in a connection failure.
(1-97H368)
Workaround: None
NullPointer error when a special character is used in the search string in
TIBCO Designer console: A NullPointer exception is thrown, when a hyphen
or an underscore character is used in the search string for the ’filename’ field in
the Configuration tab of the Filepoller activity. (1-9CDYH8)
Workaround: None.
Unable to open TIBCO Installation Manager on Linux: TIBCO Installation
Manager fails to open on Linux platform after TIBCO Runtime Agent version
5.5.4 and any version TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks are installed.
(1-981M0B)
Workaround: Use the following syntax to launch TIBCO Installation Manager
using a a different JRE:
$ ./TIBCOIntsallationManager -is:javahome
JRE_HOME
Service level Global Variables values set in the tra file are not picked up by
bwengine: The service level Global Variables values set in the tra file in the
format tibco.clientVar.<Variable Name> are not picked up by the
bwengine. Instead it shows the values set in the TIBCO Designer. (1-9AXI79)
Workaround: None.

Release Notes
Increased memory footprint and memory sizing issue: TIBCO
BusinessWorks 5.2.0 and higher versions may see an increase in memory
footprint and a potential memory sizing issue. (1-8G8PXB)
Workaround: TIBCO BusinessWorks version 5.2.0 and above point to server
JVM and versions older than TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.2.0 point to client JVM in
the bwengine.tra file. While sizing and tuning your environment, consider
the following:
•
The total memory used by the JVM (memory footprint) is dependent on the
type of JVM used (Server JVM or Client JVM), the JVM version, and the
JVM vendor.
•
A Server JVM occupies a higher memory footprint and may result in higher
performance when compared to a Client JVM.
•
A Client JVM may have a lower startup time and memory footprint.
For more information on tuning the JVM to suit your application, refer to the
JVM Tuning Guide of the JVM used in your environment. You may also consult
your JVM vendor for details about the exact memory footprint and heap
management in the JVM version used in your environment.
Output data invalid error with TIBCO Rendezvous 8.1: On UNIX, when
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks version is run with TIBCO Rendezvous
8.1, the following error is displayed: "Output data invalid". (1-8W890J)
Workaround: Edit the CLASSPATH in the bwengine.tra file to put the
RV_HOME/lib/tibrvj.jar before RV_HOME/lib in the CLASSPATH.
Rebranding for BW Processes tab in TIBCO Administrator: The BW
Processes tab in TIBCO Administrator does not reflect the rebranding of the
product to ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks. (1-89JY1I)
Workaround: None. The tab will continue to be called "BW Processes".
Mapped drives not recognized by deployed services: If the TIBCO Hawk
Agent is started as an NT Service, mapped drives on the machine are not
recognized by deployed services. (1-103GMT)
Workaround:
Start the TIBCO Hawk Agent from the command line.

Service Container: If you start the bwcontainer and try to use commands like
--list or --undeploy, it throws the following exception:
java.rmi.server.ExportException: Port already in use :8004.
(1-8A7O5Z)
Workaround:
If you want to do the JMX based management and monitoring of the container,
you need to manually configure the following:
Add the following properties and set the appropriate value in the
bwcontainer.tra for the JMX management monitoring using the JConsole:
# enabling jmx - no security, default port is 8004
java.property.com.sun.management.jmxremote=true
java.property.com.sun.management.jmxremote.port=8004
java.property.com.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=false
java.property.com.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false
OR
Specify the following JMX URL in the Advanced tab of JConsole:
service:jmx:rmi:///jundi/rmi://localhost:<port>/<containerName>
where;
•
<port>: Its the value in bwcontainer.tra specified by property
"com.tibco.bw.container.rmi.port"
•
<containerName>:the containerName is the container name specified when
you start up the BW container.
Validation of a schema file fails when the schema file imports other schema
files: While importing schemas using the Schema Importer tool, a new
location with URL such as C:\<folder_name>\schema.xsd is created and the
schemas are imported. However, validating the schema file containing the
xsd:include fails with a syntactic error saying the attribute ’SchemaLocation’ is
required. (1-79SX64)
Workaround:
Provide the URL for the schema.xsd file as
http://server:port/<folder_name>/schema.xsd
Fault handling is incorrect: When an exception thrown in ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks has the same schema as the fault, the fault does not get
propagated properly. (1-8EXN93)
Workaround:
None.

Multiple WSDL message references in a schema: Currently, you can create
an in-line schema in an Editor tab (for example, on the Output Editor tab of the
Start activity) that has multiple references to WSDL messages. This is not
permitted. (1-6ROND3)
Workaround: You can only have one reference to a WSDL message in an
Editor schema and it must be at the root level of the schema. Do not create
multiple elements in a schema of type WSDL Message. A future version of
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks will not allow this type of schema to be
created.
Uninstalling TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.3.1: Uninstalling TIBCO
BusinessWorks Release 5.3.1 does not restore the base 5.3.0 version. Instead, all
release 5.3 files are removed. (1-70FW9X)
Workaround: If you wish to uninstall Release 5.3.1 and revert to the base 5.3.0
version, manually copy the files from the directory
<install_dir>\_uninst\backup5.3.0 (for example, on MS Windows,
c:\tibco\bw\5.3\_uninst\backup_5.3.0) to their original location.
XPath Formula Builder: On Windows platforms, the XPath Formula Builder
dialog has an X icon in the top right corner that dismisses the dialog. On UNIX
platforms, this icon does not appear.
Workaround: To close the XPath Formula Builder dialog on UNIX systems,
either click the XPath Formula Builder button (the pencil icon) in the Input tab
of the activity (this button toggles the display of the dialog) or use the
keyboard shortcut for dismissing a window in your windowing system. For
most UNIX platforms and windowing systems, this keyboard shortcut is
Alt-F4.
Using the preceding axis in XSLT: In previous releases, the for-each-group
XSLT statement was not available for use. To workaround this, the preceding
axis was sometimes used to create the same output. There were performance
problems when using the preceding axis that caused unreasonable slowdowns
during mapping.
Workaround: The for-each-group statement performs faster than using the
preceeding axis. As such, xsl:for-each-group should be used in preference
to the combination of xsl:for-each and the preceding axis to solve the
problem more efficiently. Modify your mappings to use for-each-group.
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Release Notes

The Stop Button in Test Mode: In some situations, this button may not stop
the process immediately because TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks may be
waiting for the current operation to be completed. For example, if the current
activity is FTP Put and you are attempting to place a very large file on the
remote server, the process engine will not exit test mode until the FTP
command has completed, failed, or a timeout has been reached.
Optional boolean datatype mapped to a Render XML activity must be
specified: If a boolean datatype in a WSDL is mapped to a Render XML
activity and the cardinality of the boolean datatype is optional, then the value
of the boolean datatype must be specified. An exception is thrown if the value
is not specified. (1-9ARJ0V)
Workaround: None.
Test Mode Error: If you attempt to test a process where an XML Render
activity has not specified any input, you will receive the "Unable to reparse
source view error".
Workaround: The cause of this error may not be clear when you receive it.
Check any XML Render activities and make sure the input mappings are
specified.
Deployment of multiple engines: The current version of TIBCO
Administrator does not allow you to specify different values for global
variables for each engine in a load-balancing group. For example, you may
have multiple engines executing the same process definition that starts a
process when a new RVCMQ message is received. For each of these engines,
you cannot specify a different value for global variables such as Worker Weight
or Scheduler Weight in the current TIBCO Administrator interface.
Workaround: If you define a global variable with the Service checkbox
checked (using the Advanced Editor of the global variable tab), TIBCO
Administrator creates an entry into the service’s .tra file like the following:
tibco.clientVar.<variableName> = <Value>
You can edit this entry in the .tra file for the deployed process engine and
specify a value for your global variables. This will allow you to specify
different values for global variables for each engine in a load-balancing group.
ActiveEnterprise Adapter Palette
Invoking an operation with no "in" parameters: You cannot currently invoke
an operation that has no input parameters.

AE configuration requires Connection Username and Connection Password
(1-A2H5G1): When configuring AE with JMS transport and SSL enabled, a
username and password is required for the Connection Username and
Connection Password in the session configuration in the adapter.
Workaround: None.
AE clients throw AE metadata loading error when deployed in the TIBCO
Admin (1-9E58L9, BW-8992): EAR created from AE client projects which have
a Publish to Adapter activity do not have the required AEschemas; as a result
they throw AE metadata loading error when deployed in TIBCO Admin.
Workaround: None.
Validation error when using an Adapter WSDL generated in ActiveMatrix
Designtime (1-90NRBK): When a WSDL file, generated for an adapter in
TIBCO Business Studio, is mapped to a Partner Link Configuration in TIBCO
Designer and the Designer project is validated, the following error is thrown:
[Partner Link Configuration = Partner Link Configuration;
Partner Link = name_1]. Partner Link has invalid configuration
Workaround: None. The validation error can be ignored if and only if you
intend to use the project in the ActiveMatrix environment where you MUST
wire the partner reference in the composite.
Summary (1-8G52YL): Any ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks process with
Adapter activities using JMS as a transport and has SSL enabled, fails to
initialize.
Workaround: None.
JMS Server crashes: If the JMS server goes down while you are designing and
testing your process definition (and your ActiveEnterprise Adapter activities
are using the JMS transport), you must restart TIBCO Designer because the
connection to the JMS server cannot be refreshed.
Publishing messages containing unions with XML message format: You
cannot currently publish a message that contains a union when using the XML
message format.
Association Lists: You cannot use association lists in any custom adapter.
While there will be no errors during configuration, you will encounter errors at
runtime because association lists are not supported in TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks.

Ledger File field when using the RVCM transport: TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks constructs the default value of the Ledger File field from global
variables and the Adapter Service configuration. The value of this field must
result in a valid path on the filesystem where the process is run. It is possible
that the default value may not be a valid path.
Workaround: You may need to modify the default value in this field or
modify the global variables used in this field to make sure the field results in a
valid filesystem path.
EJB Palette
Earlier releases of the TIBCO BusinessWorks EJB Plug-in: The 5.1.x releases
of this plug-in will not work with TIBCO BusinessWorks Release 5.2.0.
Workaround: You must upgrade and install the latest release of the plug-in
(release 5.2.0) if you wish the plug-in to work with TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.2.0.
WebSphere 5.0.2: The WebSphere EJB components are not fully serializable.
Because of this, checkpoints may not completely capture references to EJB
Home and Remote objects. Therefore, if a process engine crashes after a
checkpoint, the restarted process instance will throw an exception when an EJB
Home or EJB Remote activity attempts to call a method on an EJB object created
before the checkpoint.
WebLogic 7.0 Service Pack 2: In WebLogic 7.0, the EJB components are not
fully serializable. Therefore, checkpoints fail in processes containing EJB Home
or EJB Remote activities when using this version of WebLogic.
Workaround: The issue is fixed in WebLogic 8.1. Upgrade to that version, if
possible.
WebLogic 7.0 Service Pack 2: There is an InitialContext conflict when using
BEA WebLogic Application Server and deploying processes that use activities
in both the JMS palette and the EBJ palette (or when using multiple users in
activities in the EJB palette).
Workaround: Set the Maximum Connections field in the EJB Connection
resource to "0" so that a new InitialContext is created for each lookup
operation.

Release Notes
JBoss 3.2.1: For some of the EJB method invocations [for example, calling
getEJBHome on a remote object], a jndi.properties file must be present in
the TIBCO BusinessWorks engine classpath, otherwise the following error
occurs:
EJB application exception occurred. The EJBRemote interface
method [test.bw.ejb.stateLess.Test1.getEJBHome] raised exception
[java.lang.reflect.UndeclaredThrowableException].
java.lang.reflect.UndeclaredThrowableException
at
com.tibco.plugin.ejb.EJBRemoteActivity.for(EJBRemoteActivity.jav
a:143)
Workaround: Create the appropriate jndi.properties file and place it into the
engine CLASSPATH. This is most easily done by editing bwengine.tra before
starting TIBCO Designer or before deploying your project. See the
documentation for TIBCO Administrator for more information about .tra files
and deploying projects. Sample jndi.properties files are available in the
JBoss3.2.1 installation.
Error Transition
Error transitions in parallel tracks: Currently, the $_error process data
produced by an error transition is global to the process.
This means the result of $_error may be unpredictable if there are error
transitions in two or more parallel tracks.
Workaround: Use a group to isolate the tracks with error transitions from
each other.
File Palette
Warning messages on console when File Poller activity is run (1-8RRUNG):
When a project containing the File Poller activity is run with TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks version 5.6.x, the following warning messages are
seen on the console:
Warn [BW_Core] Duplicate message map entry for
errorRole.BW_Plugin.BW-FILE-100009
Warn [BW_Core] Duplicate message map entry for
errorRole.BW_Plugin.BW-FILE-100018
Workaround: None.These warning messages are harmless and are shown on
the console if two classes attempt to load the same message bundle.
FTP Palette

FTP servers outside of a firewall (1-6ZIUQ1): Only the FTP PUT and FTP
GET activities work properly when using FTP activities to access an FTP server
outside of a firewall (using the Firewall and Proxy fields on the FTP
Connection resource). No other FTP activities can be used to access an FTP
server outside of a firewall.
Workaround: This will be fixed in a future release of TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks.
Implicit Mode for FTP over SSL (1-70DCEV): This is not supported.
Workaround: Only explicit mode is supported.
General Activities Palette
When Checkpointing against a load balancing database, occasionally there
are some left over job records in the database even when all jobs are
successfully executed (1-8K03P5): A Checkpoint activity when performed
against a load balancing database, occasionally leaves some job records in the
database as incomplete inspite of all jobs successfully executed status. Hence,
when the process engine is restarted, it tries to recover those remaining
incomplete jobs.
Workaround: None.
Schema in a Call Process Activity (1-8GFHIR): The Input and Output
schema of a Call Process activity in a parent process do not show the schema in
the Start and End activity of the child process that is called by the Call Process
activity. This is observed when multiple WSDL files with the same target
namespace are used.
Workaround: Ensure that the target namespaces for the WSDL files in the
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks project are different.
Summary (1-8VR7Z3): The Timer activity on the Daylight Saving Time goes
into an infinite loop at the beginning of the day.
Workaround: None.
Wait Notify activities do not support MySQL database (1-8P1V1F): The Wait
Notify activities do not support the MySQL database and throw an error if they
are connected to a MySQL database.
Workaround: None.
Support for DB2 in Wait Activity (1-8EI6BX): The Wait activity does not
support DB2 database.

Release Notes
Call Process activity is case sensitive at run time (1-5EPVYK): The Call
Process activity, in debug mode, handles the name of the process to be called in
a case insensitive manner. However, if the process name differs in case from the
actual process name, the Call Process activity returns an error when deployed
and run as the process name is handled in a case sensitive manner.
Workaround: Use the resource picker to select the process to be called.
Editing Shared Variable initial values (1-79Q35L): If you create a schema for
a Shared Variable resource and then attempt to set its initial value, the schema
sometimes does not appear in the dialog to set the initial value.
Workaround: Select a different resource, and then return to the Shared
Variable resource, the schema now appears in the dialog to set the variable’s
initial value.
Changing icon: If you change the icon for a Call Process resource and
apply the change, it is not possible to undo the change.
Workaround: Delete the Call
Process
and add a new one.
HTTP Palette
Summary (BW-14459): Writing large attachments with serverType selected in
the HttpConnection is 'HttpComponent’, throws an exception.
Workaround: None.
Summary (BW-13500): 'Defer Client Authentication' does not work with
HTTP components as HTTP server.
Workaround: Use Tomcat server.
Summary (1-855CTR): When the hostname is anything other than the
localhost, then TIBCO BusinessWorks considers the machine as a multi home
environment and considers default host as null.
Workaround: Set the bw.plugin.http.server.defaultHost property in
bwengine.tra file to the same value as has been set in the host field of HTTP
Shared Connection for default host.

Empty reason phrase field in the Send HTTP Request activity
(1-9QYSTP): The reason phrase field for the Send HTTP Request activity is
empty if the HTTP server process contains a custom status code and reason
phrase in the status Line field of the Send HTTP Response activity’s Input
schema. This is observed when you migrate from TIBCO Runtime Agent 5.6.0
to 5.6.1. Note that this issue is specific to the Tomcat server and is not observed
when using HTTPComponents.
Workaround: None.
Warning messages on console when any activity from the HTTP Palette is
run (1-8RQOSD): When a project containing any activity from the HTTP
Palette is run with TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks version 5.6.x, the
following warning messages are seen on the console:
Warn [BW_Core] Duplicate message map entry for
errorRole.BW_Plugin.BW-HTTP-100118
Warn [BW_Core] Duplicate message map entry for
errorRole.BW_Plugin.BW-HTTP-100206
Workaround: None.These warning messages are harmless and are shown on
the console if two classes attempt to load the same message bundle.
Separating multiple name/value pairs in cookies (1-7V7K10): The
convention to separate multiple name-value pairs in the same cookie element
is typically a semi-colon (;), but TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks uses a
comma (,).
Workaround: Use commas to separate multiple name/value pairs in the same
Cookie header element.
Double-byte characters in mime headers (1-6TH5F9): The mimeHeaders
element of Send HTTP Request can not contain any double byte characters.
Workaround: None.
Migrated projects that specify the HTTPVersion input element: The Send
HTTP Request activity in previous releases of TIBCO BusinessWorks had an
input element named HTTPVersion. This input element did not throw an
exception if an invalid HTTP version was specified. This field is now
deprecated and no longer appears in the input of Send HTTP Request
activities. However, for migrated projects, this input element will appear, and it
will still not throw an error if an invalid version is supplied.
Workaround: Remove the HTTPVersion from your activity’s input schema in
any migrated projects. It is not needed.

Accept Redirects field on Send HTTP Request: When this field is checked, if
the remote server sends the redirection status code (3xx), the request is
automatically redirected, if the remote host redirects the request to the same
host and port. Currently, redirecting to a different host or a different port on the
same host is not permitted.
Workaround: If the remote host attempts to redirect the request to a different
host and/or port, you must handle this in your process definition logic instead
of expecting automatic redirection.
When we decode the escaped characters of the Request URI of an incoming
HTTP GET request, we always use UTF-8.
When we deserialize an incoming HTTP request, we do not properly use the
encoding specified in the Content-Type header
When the Content-Type of an HTTP POST request that sends parameters is not
specified, we do not default to application/x-www-form-urlencoded.
Workaround: The user will have to specify the Content-Type and not rely on
the default value.
•
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks does not perform key store validation.
i.e. expired keys.
•
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks validates the certificate when user
imports it, but if certificate expires after that, it becomes an invalid
certificate and TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks does not trust it.
•
The key store password must be the same as the keys inside it.
•
TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks does not encourage the use of
self-signed certificates. If a self-signed certificate is used, TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks assumes it is coming from a trusted trading
partner.
•
In this release, TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks only supports Java key
stores. P12 key stores are not currently supported.
Java Palette
Reference to the jar by the JAVA schema is lost when the project is reopened
(1-8QX10D): In TIBCO Designer, JAVA schema in the project refers to the class

Deployment fails if the JAVA schema resource is used (1-8E2S6X): When
starting the bwengine in bwcontainer, the deployment fails if the JAVA schema
resource is used and some activity in this process refers to this JAVA schema.
Workaround: None.
Code truncation: Choosing "Invoke Method Body" on the Code tab of a Java
Code activity will sometimes only display a portion of the code. This is because
the Java Code activity expects that there are always matching open and close
curly braces within your code. You could, have code like the following:
myString[4] = new String("A15%!}
Z");
This would cause a mismatch of curly braces, and code beyond this point
would be truncated.
No code is lost, but the display will be truncated when a mismatched closing
curly brace is encountered. Choosing Full Class will always display all code, so
this problem: only occurs when you wish to display the Invoke method.
Workaround: You can either choose to always display the full class, or you
can add matching curly braces to your code within comments to avoid the
problem. For example, for the line of code above, you can change it as follows
to make the curly braces match:
// matching brace for next line {
myString[4] = new String("A15%!}
Z");

Connection with the Datasource does not set all the properties supported by a
driver.
For example, the property SendStringParametersAsUnicode=false.
Workaround: None.
JDBC Call Procedure throws an error when a number containing more than
20 digits is used as IN parameter (1-8W9FFH): When invoking the Sybase
Stored Procedure containing a numeric data type (defined as numeric (30, 0))
as one of its IN/OUT parameter and a number comprising of more than 20
digits as IN parameter, the JDBC Call Procedure throws the following error:
"Arithmetic overflow during implicit conversion of NUMERIC value
'12345678901234567890123456' to a NUMERIC field".
Workaround: None.
Incorrect time adjustment when a timestamp is inserted by a JDBC activity
(1-8Z1DMR): When a JDBC update activity inserts a timestamp value with
Server Timezone set to "GMT" or "UTC" and the machine local timezone is PST,
time is adjusted by an hour.
Workaround: None
Incorrect precision returned when Object contains float data type
(1-8JPASU): The precision returned is incorrect when an object contains a
float data type and the float value has more than 16 digits.
For example, consider a table containing an object with a float data type, where
the float data type is set to 12345678901234567890123456. When JDBC Query
activity queries this table for the object, the value of the float data type returned
is 12345678901234568000000000 and not its actual value.
Workaround:
No workaround at this time.
Support for MySQL driver version 5.0.6 (1-88KVN1): TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks supports MySQL driver version 5.0.6. However, you may face
issues when older versions of the driver are used.
Workaround: None

Problem fetching IN/OUT schema using ojdbc14 9.2.0.1.0 driver
(1-8JCRB2): When ojdbc14 9.2.0.1.0 driver is used, the JDBC query activity
does not fetch IN/OUT schema when querying from a table that has a simple
object as its column type and the object contains Oracle Timestamp data type.
The Call Procedure activity also does not list the IN/OUT parameters.
Workaround:
Place the Oracle 10g R2 driver, ojdbc14 10.2.0.3.0 under
<TIBCO_HOME>/tpcl/jdbc. The correct schema will be fetched during
design-time.
JDBC Query activity does not display the Timezone information
(1-88F6AN): The JDBC Query activity does not display the Timezone
information when used with MySQL 5.0 driver. For a select query process with
Server Timezone set to EST, the output is similar to ’1970-01-01 00:00:01’,
whereas the expected output is ’1970-01-01T00:00:01-05:00’. The MySQL query
function returns a value of type string and not datetime. Thus, the Timezone
information is not displayed.
Migration from previous releases: Some activities of the JDBC palette have
changed so that some existing 2.x projects may have errors in the migration
log. Most of the problems that will occur are due to changes in the input
schema of the activities and new enforcement rules for SQL statements.
Workaround: See the release notes document of an older release version for a
description of the changes in this release to the activities of the JDBC palette. If
possible, update your 2.x project to take these changes into account before
migrating the project. If you have already migrated to 5.1, alter the migrated
activities to account for the new and changed functionality of the activities of
this palette.
Migration from previous releases: When migrating projects from previous
releases, the JDBC connection information found in the project is used to fetch
schema from the database where necessary. If the JDBC connection is
unsuccessful during migration, the input or output schemas of JDBC activities
may not be available.
Workaround: The runtime values for any global variable substitution is not
performed when making the JDBC connection. Therefore, make certain the
connection information is correct in the 2.x project before migration. Also,
make sure the database is up, running, and reachable when migrating the
project. If you open the migrated project in TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.1 and the
input or output schemas are not the expected schemas, click the Fetch or
Refresh button on the activity’s Configuration tab, click Apply, then save the
project.

Migration from previous releases: Prior to release 5.x, if a value returned
from a table was null, the output element corresponding to that table value was
not placed into the output schema for a JDBC Call Procedure activity, if the
output element was optional. In release 5.x, the element is now placed into the
output schema and has "xsi:nil = true" to indicate the element is null.
Workaround: To be compatible with this release and future releases, you
should surround elements that can be nil with an if statement to determine
whether to output the element. Another way to workaround this problem is to
set a property in the bwengine.tra file to maintain the behavior of previous
releases. The Config.JDBC.CallProcedure.OutputUseNil property controls
whether elements that are nil are contained in the output. Set the property to
false to achieve the behavior of previous releases.
Summary (1-7V3VSS): Under certain situations, time out exceptions are not
thrown when using stored procedures in an Oracle database. This can
sometimes occur if the stored procedure calls Java functions that sleep for some
amount of time.
Workaround: Use caution when calling stored procedures that call Java
functions that sleep.
Stored procedures returning multiple result sets from Sybase
(1-36AMUR): When using the jConn or Data Direct 3.3 driver and connecting
to a Sybase database, stored procedures that are supposed to return multiple
result sets do not return any data.
Workaround: This only occurs when using the jConn or Data Direct 3.3
database drivers and a Sybase database. To avoid this problem, you can either
use the sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver instead or you can add set
nocount on to your stored procedure definition.
Parameter Types When Calling A Procedure Using the Sybase JConnect
Driver: When using the JDBC Call Procedure activity with the
com.sybase.jdbc2.jdbc.SybDriver driver, you may need to update the
Parameter Types of in/out parameters before execution.
For example, all ProcedureColumnOut types will initially appear as
ProcedureColumnIn. You must manually change these to
ProcedureColumnOut. This can either be done by typing or by selecting from
the pull-down list of values. Then, apply and save your project before
executing the process definition.

Aliases and Sybase: When you use the
driver to connect to a
Sybase database, column alias names are ignored in SQL statements. Instead of
the specified alias, the column name is used in the result set schema.
tibcosoftwareinc.jdbc.sybase.SybaseDriver
If you are attempting to execute a query that includes a multi-table join and
you are trying to select columns with the same name, you must use column
name aliases. Because of this issue, these types of queries will not work
properly.
Workaround: This is only an issue when using
tibcosoftwareinc.jdbc.sybase.SybaseDriver.
Other drivers work
correctly. Either use a different driver or do not use aliases in your SQL
statements. A future release of this bundled driver may fix this problem.
Using COUNT(*) in queries: Depending on the JDBC driver you use, the
output datatype of COUNT(*) differs. When using Oracle drivers, the output
datatype is a float. When using MS SQL Server drivers, the output datatype is
an integer.
Select for update statements to Oracle databases: When a JDBC Query
activity has the SELECT statement with the FOR UPDATE clause for an Oracle
database, a "fetch out of sequence" error is returned if the activity is not part of
a transaction.
Workaround: Enclose the activity in a transaction group.
Optional Stored Procedure parameters: Optional stored procedure
parameters are not supported. If one of the arguments is missing, the standard
procedure cannot be executed.
Workaround: Provide a value for all parameters in the JDBC Call Procedure
activity input. If a parameter does not have a value, specify an explicit nil for
the input element.
For Oracle, calling arguments or return values of the PL/SQL types TABLE
(now known as indexed-by tables), RESULT SET, RECORD, or BOOLEAN is
not supported. For more information, please visit
http://otn.oracle.com/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/htdocs/jdbc_faq.htm
Inserting large BLOBs: If inserting / updating a huge BLOB fails, activity
timeout may need to be adjusted to allow sufficient time to finish the operation

DML statements: If DML statements are used with SQL Direct activity, using
8.x versions of Oracle thin / thick drivers doesn't work in some cases.
Workaround: Upgrade to 9.x drivers. Note that 9.x drivers work with 8.x and
7.x databases, so only the driver must be changed.
Maximum Rows not supported: While working with Oracle stored
procedures, the Maximum Rows property is not supported by the Oracle thin
driver.
Workaround: Use the Data Direct driver included with the release.
Stored procedure custom exceptions: A JDBC Call Procedure activity
throws a generic exception for any custom exceptions raised in stored
procedures. The exception thrown is driver specific. Below are the error
messages thrown for each combination of database and driver:
Data Direct Oracle: JDBC error reported (SQLState = HY000)
Thin Oracle: JDBC error reported (SQLState = 72000)
Data Direct MSSQL: JDBC error reported (SQLState = HY000)
CLOB/BLOB Datatypes: Columns of type CLOB or BLOB can only be used in
JDBC activities when you use one of the following drivers in the JDBC
Connection resource:
tibcosoftwareinc.jdbc.oracle.OracleDriver
oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver (oci)
oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver (thin)
Manipulating CLOB or BLOB data is not supported with other database
drivers.

Queue Receiver with reply to JMS activity inside the XA Transaction fails with
the following error upon commit:
Commit failed with exception "Should not be call for an
XASession". Will rollback current transaction
Workaround: None.
Thread blocks causing low CPU utilization (1-9GT9CV): When using the
JMS Request Reply activity, a low CPU utilization (about 55%) caused by a
large number of thread blocks is observed.
Workaround: None.
TIMEOUT Exception encountered occasionally in GetJMSActivity for Auto,
DUPS OK and Transactional Ack modes (1-9E8K4V): In GetJMSActivity for
Auto, DUPS OK and Transactional Ack modes, a TIMEOUT Exception is
encountered occasionally even though the queue contains the messages.
Workaround: Set prefetch value for queue to NONE.
Get JMS Queue Message activity does not work as expected when used in a
group (1-878YNU): The Get JMS Queue Message activity does not work as
expected when used in a group and with the Sun JMS Queue Message server.
When the timeout value for the Get JMS Queue message activity is not
specified, the activity consumes all the messages in the queue and waits for
new messages. However, the activity does not consume any new messages that
arrive on the queue after a time interval.
Workaround: Specify the timeout for the Get JMS Queue Message activity
before using the activity with Sun JMS Queue Message server.
Using Different Ports for JNDI and the JMS server
(1-6VW8GN): Performance can degrade when using a message selector in the
Get JMS Queue Message activity and different ports have been specified for the
Provider URL and JNDI.
Workaround: Make sure the port number specified in the Provider URL and
JNDI fields match. Alternatively, use TCP to connect to the JMS server. This
will be fixed in a future version.

JMSProperties Input Elements: For activities that publish messages (for
example, JMS Topic Publisher or Reply to JMS Message), the JMSProperties
input element is available. If you specify a value for any of the JMSProperties,
then save the project, then delete the value for the property, the JMSProperties
element does not get properly removed from the project. You will get an
invalid attribute error if you attempt to execute the process definition where
the property has not been properly deleted.
Workaround: To work around this problem, edit the process definition
.process file in a text editor and search for <JMSProperties/>. Remove this
string from the .process file, then restart TIBCO Designer. This will be fixed in
a future version.
replyToDestination Input Element: Use of the replyToDestination input
element in the JMS Topic/Queue Requestor activities does not always result in
the expected behavior if more than one process instance specifies the same
reply to destination.
Workaround: If you do wish to specify a destination name for reply messages,
you should either specify unique reply to destinations for each process instance
or use the JMS Queue Sender and JMS Topic Publisher activities together with
the corresponding Wait for JMS Queue Message and Wait for JMS Topic
Message so that the "Wait" activities can use the appropriate key to receive the
correct reply message for the process.
Mail Palette
Reading Attachments from Files: When attachments are contained in a file,
the file is read using the system default encoding. There is no way to specify
the expected encoding of the file’s contents.
Workaround: None. This will be addressed in a future release.
Text Attachments: When a text attachment is sent by the Send Mail activity,
the attachment appears as byte[] when opened in MS Outlook.
Receive Mail attachments (Japanese): When email is received that was sent
by Netscape Navigator on a Japanese machine, the content of any attachments
is corrupt in the Receive Mail activity.

Special characters not recognized in the input for Mapper fields
(1-AGZUNE): Special characters such as "<", ">", "&" are not recognized when
specified as input for the mapper fields which accept (xml) strings and throws
an error during Run-time. They should be converted to "&lt;" and "&gt;" etc.
Workaround: None.
Design-time validation: The mapper does not support design-time validation
of string length constraints. It also does not validate maximum and minimum
(inclusive and exclusive) constraints on numbers.
Policy Palette
"Invalid system security subject" Error at runtime (1-7BVBMN): An "Invalid
system security subject" error is thrown at runtime in the following cases:
•
If a BusinessWorks project EAR file contains both SOAP activities and
service resources, and the policy is applied only to a SOAP activity that is
part of a dynamically called process.
•
If all the processes associated with security policy association in a
BusinessWorks project are not included in the tester, irrespective of
whether the process starter needs it or not.
Workaround: Validate all policy associations before starting the engine. Also,
ensure that during deployment configuration all the event sources, service
resources, and service agents that have policies applied are not disabled.
Longer startup time for projects using Policy palette resources under JRE 1.5
(1-72BWF4): When you are using JRE 1.5, startup time for the engine is
increased for projects that use security policies.
Workaround: JRE 1.5 actually improves performance as the engine continues
to run for longer periods, but startup time can increase when using security
policies.
Exception when encryption enabled (1-6XH7P3): Under some situations,
some requests that have encryption enabled raise an exception.
Workaround: None.
InclusiveNamespaces tag in signature (1-6RU37X): An exception occurs on
messages if you are using jwsdp1.6 (SUN's API for signing SOAP messages),
and you are using the InclusiveNamespaces tag in the canonicalization
method.

Using J2SE to Encrypt Messages (1-6XGX2F): Setting
java.propperty.TIBCO_SECURITY_PROVIDER to j2se is not supported for
encrypting messages. Authentication and signatures are supported, but not
encryption.
Workaround: None.
Multiple policies applied to the same resource (1-6T6Q6N): You can create
multiple Security Policy Association resources that apply different policies to
the same resource. This is not recommended, but at this time, the product
allows this to occur without a warning. At runtime, the first policy encountered
will be used for the resource.
Workaround: Do not create multiple Security Policy Association resources
that apply to the same SOAP or Service resource. In the future, this condition
will not be permitted.
Rendezvous Palette
Summary (BW-14736): While retrieving TibrvMsgField from TibrvMsg for
an unsigned short with value 65535, it gets converted to -1. This causes
XsUnsignedShort to throw NumberFormatException.

Send RV Request activity failed to send complex data schemas: On UNIX,
the Send RV Request activity failed to send complex data schemas.
Workaround: In the bwengine.tra and designer.tra files, put
before RV_HOME/lib in the CLASSPATH.
RV_HOME/lib/tibrv.jar
Use of the replySubject input element in the Send Rendezvous Request activity
would not always result in the expected behavior if more than one process
instance specified the same reply subject. If you do wish to specify a reply
subject, you should either specify unique reply subjects for each process
instance, or you can use the Publish Rendezvous Message activity together
with the Wait for Rendezvous Message activity so that the "Wait" activity can
use the appropriate key to receive the correct reply message for the process.

Using localhost as the registry server host name: Java does not support more
than one registry server running in the same Java VM. If you are using
"localhost" as the registry server host name, you may encounter this problem
when trying to test process definitions. TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks
attempts to start the registry server when a test session is initiated in TIBCO
Designer. If you attempt to start another test session with a different port
number on the same machine (localhost), you will encounter an error when an
attempt is made to use the registry server (for example, to execute a RMI
Lookup activity).
Workaround: If you must change the port number of the registry server when
using the same registry server host name, you must restart the Java VM by
closing and restarting TIBCO Designer before starting another test session.
Service Palette
Summary (BW-13420): A similar value in the incoming/outgoing SOAP fault
messages on the wire for both the fault headers is received, if the WSDL has
two fault headers with the same part name.
Workaround: None.
Summary (BW-13403): When one Fault is removed from the Abstract WSDL's
operation, it does not rollback that fault in the Fault Headers Soap fault list.
Workaround: None.
Summary (BW-13423): Endpoint Type 'AMX' is visible in the Endpoint
Bindings inspite of the Enable for AMX check-box in the Service Resource not
being enabled.
Workaround: AMX endpoints are used with ActiveMatrix only. This does not
affect any functionality.
Summary (BW-13571): Concrete WSDL generated by TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks while using SOAP over JMS, does not generate the location
attribute value for SOAP address in the SOAP bindings.
Workaround: Enter the attribute value.
Design-time validation error not thrown (1-9F7MW1): Design-time

Inconsistent representation of the value of charset = UTF-8 (1-7AXY6R): The
value of charset=UTF-8 is inconsistent in the Content-type of HTTP Headers
for SOAP Request Reply, Send SOAP Fault, and HTTP Request Reply activities.
SOAP Request Reply accepts the value with quotes, such as "UTF-8", while
Send SOAP Fault and HTTP Request Reply activities accept the value without
quotes, such as UTF-8.
Workaround: None
Validate For Deployment and Schemas (1-3Q0GSD): When you have a
number of Schemas (WSDL and XSDs) stored in a directory and the directory is
renamed, validate for deployment will initially report errors.
Workaround: Shutdown and restart TIBCO Designer and the errors are no
longer reported when validating for deployment.
Invoking a Web Service implemented by a process definition The URL for
web services that are implemented by TIBCO BusinessWorks process
definitions is derived from the process name and the path to the process within
the project. In previous releases, this URL was represented in the WSDL file
exactly as it appeared in the project. That is, if there were any spaces or other
special characters (for example, &, /, or =), these characters were not altered in
the URL. Therefore, a client of the web service would use URL encoding to
represent the special characters when requesting the service. This has been
changed in release 5.x so that any special characters in the URL are mangled
and represented using regular characters.
Workaround For projects created in release 2.x and migrated to 5.x, you must
use the new URL. That is, for SOAP Request Reply activities that call web
services implemented by process definitions, refresh the WSDL file that calls
the web service. For web clients, retrieve the new WSDL file before calling the
web service.
Headers and faults have limited support for SOAP encoding. For example, the
href attribute is not supported for fault details or header elements.
Reading Attachments from Files: When attachments are contained in a file,
the file is read using the system default encoding. There is no way to specify
the expected encoding of the file’s contents.
Workaround: None. This will be addressed in a future release.

TCP Read Data Activity does not read the complete data in a specified time
(1-A03E2T): When the 'Read TCP Activity' specifies the timeout value in the
binary mode, 'Write TCP Data' activity does not proceed and hangs; unless the
TCP Connection on server side is stopped.
Workaround: Configure a 'TCP Close Connection' in the error transition for the
’Read TCP Activity’ on the server side.
TCP Read Data Activity does not timeout when using TIBCO Runtime
Agent 5.6.1 (1-9SE9TR): The TCP Read Data activity’s Timeout functionality
does not work in the Binary mode when the bytes to Read is set and No
Separator is selected. This issue is observed intermittently when you migrate
from TIBCO Runtime Agent 5.6.0 to 5.6.1.
Workaround: None.
TIBCO Designer
If you place a process definition in a custom palette, save the custom palette,
then reopen TIBCO Designer, an error occurs preventing you from reopening
TIBCO Designer.
Workaround: Do not place process definitions in custom palettes. Use custom
palettes for Generic Adapter Configuration resources or other non-process
definition resources. If you encounter this error, navigate to the location where
the custom palettes are stored (this is customizable, but Windows NT, for
example, stores these in your

TIBCO Designer 5.2 Strict Naming Convention: A stricter naming
convention is enforced in this release. The strict naming convention prevents
you from renaming an object by changing case and prevents the use of certain
characters. The strict naming convention must be turned off if you are opening
5.1.x project in Designer 5.2 that contains characters that are illegal in release
5.2.
Workaround: The -Dstrictnames flag is used to enforce or relax the strict
naming convention. The flag is set in the designer.tra file. The default is
true.
•
If set to true, the strict naming convention is enforced. This means you
cannot rename an object by changing case. For example, you cannot
rename an object from myobject to MyObject. You also cannot use the
following characters in an object name: | / \ " ' : ?.
•
If set to false, the strict naming convention is not enforced. This means
you can rename objects by changing case. You also can use the following
characters in an object name: | / \ " ' : ?.
The -Dstrictnames 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 reset the -Dstrictnames flag to true.
See the TIBCO Designer Release Notes for more information.

configured as a styleSheet parameter. If the nodes in the parameter document
are namespace prefixed, then Namespace information for the parameter
document is lost.
Workaround: None
xsl:number function in the Transform XML activity: The xsl:number
function is not supported in style sheets used by this activity.
Workaround: Do not use the xsl:number function.
XML Schemas
Redefine: The <redefine ...> mechanism is not supported in XML
Schemas. If you use a schema with this mechanism, the <redefine ...> is
ignored, and if you attempt to validate your project or resources that use the
schema, errors will occur.
<include> tags: "Chameleon" schemas: When one XML Schema (XSD)
resource that has a targetNamespace attribute includes a XSD which has no
targetNamespace, the element/type/group reference from the including to the
included schema in this case will not be resolved and will result in error
indications (red highlights) in activities' input and output tabs.
<include> tags: Include context: Schema A defines component X and
includes schema B, which defines component Y. Y's definition references X,
even though B does not include A or any other schema that defines X. This
pattern is sometimes used as a way of expressing "templates" in XSDs.
This case results in error indications in activities' input and output tabs even if
they explicitly reference schema A.

Release Notes
QName (qualified name) conflicts: Two XSDs, A and B, both have the same
targetNamespace (or no targetNamespace) and both define component X. In
that case, they are "mutually exclusive" in the context of the same process
definition. For example, you cannot have two XML Parse activities in the same
process with one configured to use element X from A and the other using
element X from B. This results in error indications in the activities' input
and/or output tabs.
There are warnings when this is about to happen (that is, if the user tries to use
A's X and B's X from the same inline schema editor). The warnings will be
clarified, and a facility for explicitly resolving such QName conflicts at the
process definition level will be added in a future release, however the
fundamental restriction is currently expected to always be present.
XPath
Numbers: XPath converts all numbers regardless of their datatypes to double.
For large positive or negative decimals and integers, there could be a loss of
precision.
Workaround Use a string instead of a number. However, for very small float
and double numbers (for example, 1.4E-45), this will not work.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks is fully compliant with the XPath 1.0
specification for comparing booleans. The resulting behavior is
counter-intuitive.
Here is an example for writing expressions comparing boolean data values.
Assume this is part of your process data:
$MyResult/
aBooleanValue
... so aBooleanValue is a boolean inside of the variable $MyResult.
The cleanest expression for a boolean condition based on this input is:
$MyResult/aBooleanValue = 'true'
The expressions:
$MyResult/aBooleanValue = true()
boolean($MyResult/aBooleanValue) = true()
string($MyResult/aBooleanValue)=true()
$MyResult/aBooleanValue
will, according to the XPath specification, always return true. Specifically:
•
•
In the first two cases the test is if the element aBooleanValue exists.
In the third case, the test for comparing a string to a boolean is if the
so this is true for both true and false values.
length(string)>0,
•
The fourth case is equivalent to boolean($MyResult/aBooleanValue)
and, like the first two, tests for the existence of aBooleanValue rather than
its string value.
The way to check a boolean in XPath is to check its textual value. This is how
the XPath specification defines the behavior.

Release Notes
Internationalization
For this release of TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks, the only platform on
which internationalization features have been tested is Japanese Windows 2000.
Also, integration tests have not yet been performed, so internationalization
features have only been tested for TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks as a
standalone product.
TIBCO Messaging Encoding
Starting with the 5.0.1 release, only Multi-File projects are allowed. In the project
creation panel, users are given the options to choose the encoding for the project
(either ISO8859-1 or UTF-8). This encoding is not the persistent storage encoding
of the project (that is always UTF-8), but is the TIBCO Messaging Encoding used
for the communication between TIBCO product components. The communication
channel can be either TIBCO Rendezvous or TIBCO Enterprise for JMS.
This TIBCO Messaging Encoding value can be set during the creation of a new
project. Once a project is created, you can change the encoding value by selecting
the root node in project tree. Then select the "Project Settings" tab in Configuration
Window.
If you are familiar with TIBCO BusinessWorks Release 2.x, you can view this
project encoding value as the equivalent of the encoding value configured using
Repository Finder for Local Repository projects.
XML Messages using JMS or AE/RV Wireformats
The current release only supports UTF-8 encoding for XML messages. XML
messages are configured in the following ways:
•
TIBCO ActiveEnterprise activities can send or receive messages using AE
XML wireformat.
•
TIBCO ActiveEnterprise activities can use JMS as a transport, and this
transport uses XML messages.
•
TIBCO Rendezvous activities can specify that messages are RV XML format.
Non-ASCII data in XML messages using Latin-1 encoding is not properly
handled. Therefore, if you choose to use an XML format, you must use UTF-8 as
the message encoding.

Usage Notes
Double-Byte Characters in Filenames
Double-byte filenames can be used in filenames within activities (for text, binary,
or XML or XDS files). However, project names cannot contain double-byte
characters.
Double-Byte Characters in XPath Expressions
The TIBCO Designer GUI allows you to use XPath expressions in many locations
(process parameters, return values, conditions in conditional transitions, and so
on). Double-byte characters are supported in all these locations.
TIBCO Designer Display Font
In the TIBCO Designer Edit > Preferences > View tab, there are two kinds of
fonts, UI Font type and Script Font type. Script Font type is used for display
characters in the XPath Formula Editor and UI Font Type is used to display
characters in other locations. If double-byte characters are displayed as rectangles,
choose an appropriate font in the preferences dialog, then exit and re-open TIBCO
Designer for the change to take effect.
ActiveEnterprise Adapter Palette
Through activities in this palette, TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks can
communicate with TIBCO adapters by way of different wire formats. All wire
formats support transmitting non-ASCII data. The wireformat character encoding
is determined by the TIBCO Messaging Encoding settings described in TIBCO
Messaging Encoding on page 116.
EJB Palette
Non-ASCII data can be used as the EJB Remote call's parameters and return
values for both stateful and stateless session beans.
The internationalization test of EJB is only conducted against BEA Weblogic 8.1
application server.

Release Notes
File Palette
In the File Poller and Wait for File Change activities, if the value for the Content
as: field is text, the user can now select the encoding in the Encoding field. This
encoding value is used to read the file contents. The Output tab will then show
the encoding for the file contents in the encoding subelement of the fileContent
element.
In the Read File and Write File activities, for text files the encoding to read/write
the file can be specified in the Input tab in the optional Encoding field. The
Output tab will then show the encoding for the file contents in encoding
subelement of the fileContent element.
In JDK 1.3.1, Shift_JIS encoding is closer to MS932 encoding because it covers
more special Japanese characters that are present in MS932. In JDK 1.4.1, Shift_JIS
encoding is closer to SJIS because it no longer covers the special Japanese
characters that are present in MS932.
FTP Palette
FTP palette now support files with both non-ASCII contents and filenames to be
transmitted to and from a remote FTP server. Currently, internationalization
features are tested only on UNIX-based FTP servers.
•
FTP Put activity — this activity allows you to transmit files with non-ASCII
data to an FTP server using non-binary mode. The source data could be
retrieved from a file on disk or from process data. If the source data is from
process data, you must specify the encoding for the remote file because the
source data is always in Unicode, or the local system's default encoding is
used for the remote file. Line endings on different operating systems are
handled properly and automatically.
•
FTP Get activity — this activity allows you to retrieve files with non-ASCII
content from an FTP server using non-binary mode. The retrieved data could
be written to a file on disk or to process data. In the later case, you must
specify the encoding of the original file on the server so the activity can
perform the conversion from the original encoding to Unicode. Line endings
on different operating systems are handled properly and automatically.
•
The activities of the FTP palette can support file names on the remote FTP
server that use a different encoding than the local machine. When this is the
case, the Remote File Name Encoding field in the FTP Connection must be
configured properly.

HTTP Palette
The activities in the HTTP palette now support non-ASCII data in both GET and
POST requests. Depending upon the configuration of the HTTP Request side, the
encoding scheme of both a GET and POST request could be normally encoded or
URL-encoded (defined in the W3C: Character Model for WWW 1.0). The HTTP
Receiver side must be configured accordingly to accommodate these different
encoding schemes.
Known Issues:
•
HTTP Receiver — If the inbound HTTP POST request is URL-encoded and it
contains non-ASCII data, and the HTTP Receiver’s "Parse Post Data Method"
field is unchecked, the Output "PostData" element will contain garbage data.
Workaround: Check the "Parse Post Data Method" checkbox and specify
output parameters for the parameters of the HTTP request. This allows the
HTTP Receiver to properly parse the inbound URL-encoded data. The
"PostData" element also returns the correctly decoded request.
•
HTTP Receiver — If the inbound HTTP GET request is URL-encoded and it
contains non-ASCII data, and the HTTP Receiver’s "Parse Post Data Method"
field is unchecked, the Output "QueryString" element will contain garbage
data. Workaround: Specify output parameters for the parameters of the HTTP
request. This allows the HTTP Receiver to properly parse the inbound
URL-encoded data.
•
HTTP Receiver — The process starter will not be able to receive and decode a
request submitted by a browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Netscape)
correctly if the request contains any non-Latin1 data. This is because the
current implementations of the major Internet browsers do no include a
Content-Type header in the outbound request. Thus, the HTTP Receiver
always uses ISO8859-1 (Latin-1) encoding to decode the inbound request.
Workaround: Workaround is available from TIBCO Support.
Java Code Activity
Hard-coded, double-byte data is now allowed in Java source code. Also, most
Java locale-sensitive classes and methods are supported.
JDBC Palette
JDBC Query and JDBC Update now support double-byte data in table names,
column names, and column values.

Release Notes
JDBC internationalization testing is only conducted against the Oracle 8.1.7
server. The server instance character sets that have been tested against include
JA16SJIS, ECUJP, and UTF8. Both Oracle thin JDBC driver and DataDirect Oracle
JDBC driver are tested.
Known Issues:
•
The tibcosoftwareinc.jdbc.oracle.OracleDriver (the DataDirect Oracle
JDBC driver) has problems under some circumstances. For example, if the
database's encoding is EUC-JP, ASCII and non-ASCII data cannot be inserted
correctly.
JMS Palette
This release of TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks was tested only using the
TIBCO Enterprise for JMS Server 3.1.0.
The TIBCO Enterprise for JMS server does not support double-byte topic or
queue names.
Mail Palette
Mail Activities now support attachments that use CJK encoding.
RV Palette
RV activities now use the TIBCO Messaging Encoding as the wire encoding. You
have to set the TIBCO Messaging Encoding to UTF-8 when you create a new
project if you want to send/receive CJK characters using RV palette activities. The
default project encoding value is ISO8859-1 that only supports Western
Europeans characters including English. Please refer to TIBCO Messaging
Encoding on page 116.
SOAP Palette
The activities of this palette allow you to send and receive non-ASCII data in
SOAP messages using UTF-8 encoding in document mode and RPC mode for
both Literal and SOAP-Encoded message styles. The message character encoding
is transparent, you do not need to configure the activities to obtain this
functionality.
XML Activities Palette
XML Parse and XML Render activities now support XML files encoded in any
IANA-compliant encodings.

Due to changes from JDK 1.3.1 to JDK 1.4.x, a shift_jis encoded XML file that
contains special Japanese characters is handled differently by the Parse XML and
Render XML activities. In TIBCO BusinessWorks Release 5.1.3 with JDK 1.4.x,
when you parse shift_jis encoded XML files you should set Parse XML's
forceEncoding value to MS932 or Windows-31J for binary mode, so that special
Japanese characters can be parsed correctly. To render a shift_jis encoded XML file
that contains special Japanese characters, you should use text mode in the Render
XML activity. Then you can map the output xmlString from Render XML to a
Write File activity with encoding value set to MS932 or Windows-31J.

Release Notes
Using Non-Default TIBCO Rendezvous Parameters
When you install TIBCO BusinessWorks version 5.3 and above, you can specify
non-default TIBCO Rendezvous parameters for the TIBCO administration
domain during installation.
•
If you keep the default parameters, already installed adapter can join the
TIBCO Administration Domain with no problems because both TIBCO
Administrator and the adapter will then use the default TIBCO Rendezvous
parameters.
•
If you change the TIBCO Rendezvous parameters, you can use TIBCO
ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks standalone with the new settings. Any adapters
you install afterwards on the same machine will use the same settings.
If adapters need to join an administration domain using non-default TIBCO
Rendezvous parameters, it is recommended you proceed as follows:
1. Install TIBCO Administrator and the adapter using the default TIBCO
Rendezvous parameters.
2. Using the domain utility, change the TIBCO Rendezvous parameters for
TIBCO Administrator to the desired settings.
3. Using the domain utility, change the TIBCO Rendezvous parameters for the
adapter to the desired settings.
The domain utility and associated documentation is available in the
folder.
