Announcements

  • NOW AVAILABLE | ROCKET LEGASUITE 8.5.6 AND ROCKET API 8.5.6


    We're excited to announce that Rocket LegaSuite 8.5.6 and Rocket API 8.5.6 is now available to customers on the Rocket Community Portal!

    Highlights include:

    Rocket LegaSuite Web

    Workbench

    Web application design experience:

    • In previous versions, any manual modifications to widgets in a page are lost when Smart Build is re-run. To optimize the development process, it is now possible to retain the modifications to Smart Build results on pages. For example, changing the list header definitions, excluding (parts of) fields or changing the web control type.

    Dynamic UI updates:

    • To provide better support for regular expressions in Dynamic UI rules, the PCRE2 regular expression library is introduced to replace the in-house regular expression library.

     

    Web Desktop Client

    • The Web Desktop Client has been upgraded to the latest version of Chromium, providing enhanced security.
    • It is now possible to save and load profile information for easier troubleshooting.

     

    Engines and Servlet

    Security enhancements:

    • New configurable rate limits have been implemented to manage the number of connections and requests made within a time period to prevent Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.
    • To prevent unrestricted communication to the servlet, CORS (Cross-origin Resource Sharing) rules can be defined in the servlet configuration.

     

    Rocket API

    Workbench

    Multi-user support for deployment projects:

    • The project create wizard for API Deployment projects has a new option to configure the API Deployment project for multi-user development.
    • Support for managing microflows using Source Control Management software has been improved.

     

    Access & Connectivity Hub

    • It is now possible to configure automatic cleanup for the hub's database. To exclude packages from the database cleanup, lock specific versions of packages by toggling the Locked switch on a version.
    • A new Start menu option was added to update the configuration of the Tomcat container where the hub is running on Windows. For example, adding extra system properties or changing the Java memory allocation.

     

     

    Rocket LegaSuite GUI

    Workbench

    • To improve the developer experience, it is now possible to also recreate the screen when the user is prompted to recreate the page during Smart Build.

  • NOW AVAILABLE | ROCKET LEGASUITE 8.5.5 AND ROCKET API 8.5.5


    We're excited to announce that Rocket LegaSuite 8.5.5 and Rocket API 8.5.5 is now available to customers on the Rocket Community Portal!

    Highlights include:

     

    General

    • OpenSSL has been upgraded to version 1.1.1i, providing enhanced security.

     

    Rocket LegaSuite Web

    Workbench

    Updated Material Design template:

    • The Material Design template for Web 3270 projects has been updated with a new logon page and improved Dynamic UI rules for the best result at runtime.
    • New custom widgets have been added to the palette to easily add combo boxes, dates, output fields, and passwords to pages.

    Web application design experience:

    • Web controls can now easily be changed to another type in the page editor. Converting the web control type also converts its properties.
    • To design web applications for different form factors (e.g. mobile/tablet), it is now possible to preview the layout of the page on a device by selecting the appropriate device / size in the Workbench.

    Dynamic UI updates:

    • New Dynamic UI rules have been added to the project templates to provide better defaults.
    • Variables defined in Dynamic UI rules can now be referenced in the properties of the Dynamic UI widgets. This unlocks new capabilities that were not possible before, like dynamic tooltips. 

     

    Engines and Servlet

    • The performance of the Web Client has been improved.
    • The engine installation experience on Windows has been streamlined to allow engines and servlets to use self-signed security certificates for connecting to the hub.

     

    Rocket API

    Workbench

    • The handling of API Deployment projects in a multi-user environment has been improved.
    • Rocket API Javadoc (Host Emulator and API Gateway) are now available on GitHub.

     

    Access & Connectivity Agent

    • To improve security, the agent now returns a Strict-Transport-Security header by default.
    • All communications between the hub and the agent are now performed via a WebSocket, ensuring administration functionality works when the agent is behind a firewall.

    Access & Connectivity Hub

    • To clearly differentiate between the displayed environments, the graphs view in the API Dashboard now displays color coded statistics bars for multiple engines or environments.
    • It is now possible to retrieve additional information for entries in the Web Session and the API Transaction view using the info menu option for that entry.

    Rocket LegaSuite GUI

    • Increased scalability allowing you to work with projects with up to 64,000 screens (previously limited to 16,000).

    Security:

    Rocket LegaSuite Web

    Workbench

    Updated Material Design template:

    • ‘Material Design’ styled combo boxes and date pickers are now available.
    • Control how SmartBuild will align to the position of an input field or label field for improved layout of widgets.
    • The template now includes the ability to enable end-users to turn dynamic UI rules on or off, for the best result at runtime.
    • The Material Design template is now available for all Web Builder project types.

    Web application design experience:

    • To improve the web application design experience, containers which include other pages now display a preview of the read-only contents of the included pages.

     

    Engines and Servlet

    • Handling HTTP compression using the HTTPRequestSend script function is now supported in engines and clients.

     

    Rocket API

    Workbench

    • It is now possible to access the microflow’s variables from JavaScript Function actions.
    • JavaScript files in API Screen projects now display built-in variables that are JavaScript reserved keywords.
    • The detection and handling of API Deployment projects that are copied or cloned into the same workspace has been improved.

     

    API Gateway

    Improved security

    • To prevent exposure of sensitive information, microflows now return a Strict-Transport-Security header by default in the HTTP response when they are invoked via a HTTPS or SSL-enabled SOAP communication manager.
    • To prevent a Cross-Site Tracing (XST) attack using Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), the HTTP TRACE method is now excluded by default in the HTTP and HTTPS Communication Managers. 

     

    Access & Connectivity Hub

    • The Access and Connectivity Hub now shows the Transaction history of its connected API Gateways in a filterable list. An administrator can now inspect what transactions were executed on what Gateway and with what response time without turning to the Gateway's log files. 
    • The Dashboard has been expanded to include charted information about completed API Transactions, per Realm, per Environment. The menus and the chart itself allow the user to zoom in on the transactions completed in a particular period.
    • The Hub now provides feedback about the progress of deployment to engines. A new progress indicator is visible on the console pages listing engines which shows the progress of the deployment and whether it succeeded or not. All engine statuses on the Dashboard now update in real time.
    • E-mail notifications can now be customized by modifying the templates.
    • It is now possible to directly edit a selected Realm or Environment on the Dashboard page.
    • All communication between the API Gateway and the hub are performed via a WebSocket. This means that all administration functionality used to manage the API Gateway from the hub will operate correctly even if the Gateway is behind a firewall.

     

    Rocket LegaSuite GUI

    • The icons for the printer client secure and non-secure connections have been refreshed.
