New features and enhancements

New features specific to Datastore

GUI

Axway Datastore is now available in HTML5.

Preferences enhancement: The user can choose and save the number of lines to display per page.

Reconciliation

Axway Datastore includes the possibility to compute reconciliation results between two sources, directly injected in Datastore.

The configuration of the reconciliation definition is done through Designer by selecting the sources among the existing object types and their properties as reconciliation keys.

The object type, as reconciliation result object type, is automatically generated, as well as the relationships between the concerned objects.

The user is now able, on the Datastore side, to define his own reconciliation functions, based on the reconciliation objects. New functions are available to allow the user to navigate between the object types concerned with the reconciliation calculation.
