Rhythmyx 7.3.2 - Release Notes

These Release Notes cover the Release version of Rhythmyx 7.3.2.

Rhythmyx 7.3.2 is a cumulative service release update for Rhythmyx 7.3.0 and Rhythmyx 7.3.1.   This update requires execution of the upgrade installer due to the nature of the changes made in the Java technologies in this update.  The primary focus of this release is the replacement of the obsolete JBOSS application server shipped with Rhythmyx. 

Downloads

Download links are available on the Percussion Support Portal landing page.  Alternately you can email the Technical Support team and they will send you a download link.

NOTE:  If performing an upgrade to 7.3.2, make sure you are on the latest patch of 7.3.1 or 7.3.0.

Important!  We have released several major bug fixes in 7.3.2 patches and therefore we request to apply the latest patch before attempting to start the service after upgrade.

 

JBOSS Replacement

This version introduces the new Jetty 9 Application server and allows for the removal of JBOSS from the server installation.  Jetty is installed alongside JBOSS to allow for troubleshooting and conversion during the installation and configuration process.   Once the new Application Server is fully configured, JBOSS may be removed from the installation directory. 

Please follow the 7.3.2 Installation & Configuration Guide for more detailed instructions on configuring the new server.  Note that the configuration of the final release may change from the beta.

Full documentation on the new application server can be found here.

Native Publishing to Amazon S3

Rhythmyx now supports native publishing editions to the Amazon S3 web servers utilizing the new Amazon S3 Delivery Type.  The S3 publisher allows for Binary content to be published to an Amazon S3 web server for use as a CDN or for hosting a complete version of the web site.

## Additional Steps ##

 - Add the following caches to AppServer\server\rx\deploy\rxapp.ear\rxapp.war\WEB-INF\classes\ehcache.xml
    The "maxEelementsInMemory" is the suggested value, but subjected to change within the documentation.

           <cache name="PSAclImpl_Entries"
           maxElementsInMemory="3000"
           eternal="true"
           overflowToDisk="false"
           />
   
           <cache name="Role_Subjects"
           maxElementsInMemory="2000"
           eternal="true"
           overflowToDisk="false"
           />
   
           <cache name="Community_Roles"
           maxElementsInMemory="1000"
           eternal="true"
           overflowToDisk="false"
           />         
        <cache name="PSAclEntry_Perms"
           maxElementsInMemory="30000"
           eternal="true"
           overflowToDisk="false"
           />
   
   In addition modify the following caches for ACL performance improvement:
   
        <cache name="PSAccessLevelImpl"
           maxElementsInMemory="40000"
           eternal="true"
           overflowToDisk="false"
           />
           
        <cache name="PSAclEntryImpl"
           maxElementsInMemory="30000"
           eternal="true"
           overflowToDisk="false"
           />
           
        <cache name="PSAclImpl"
           maxElementsInMemory="3000"
           eternal="true"
           overflowToDisk="false"
           />
            
   For additional information refer to the CMSystem cache optimization document.
   
 - MSM Server Changes:  
   Previously, installing an archive via the multi-server manager with a new content type but missing associated table schema resulted in a column missing error.  The content type application had some files left around in the system.  As of this patch, the content type is cleaned up if the table schema is missing and throws back an error noting the missing table.  When creating an archive using the multi-server manager you must include the table schema alongside the associated content type if the table schema is new or modified.  If including a shared field file, you must also include the associated table schema as well.

################################################### Patch 730_20140312 ################################################

## Changes In This Release ##

- Fixed issues with database publishing when Rhythmyx was deleting the parent record before the child record if the database was missing cascade delete from the child record's foreign key constraint.
- Added original site information to location schemes, see Additional steps for more information.
- Fixed issue where having a site with no description would cause the inability to navigate while doing an edit all for an item.
- Performance fix for workbench folders and template/content type grouping affecting Content Explorer loading times.
- Updated the location generate information in the documentation located online. (http://help.percussion.com/cmsystem/).
- Fixed issue where draft items that had not been checked in were unable to be found through a search, items are now indexed when updated or added during the first revision, and after the revision increments when the item is moved to a public state.
- Added JavaScript to prevent newly submitted items from causing orphaned items.

## Change List ##

**D-01406 - Added implementation of doing a cascading delete,  this prevents Rhythmyx  from deleting the parent record before it deletes the children records. **
**D-01386 - Fixed inability to navigate to sites in content browser if no site description is provided in the site definition.**
**D-01417 - Fixed inline links being generated incorrectly.**
**D-01455 - Fixed JEXL testing to include original site information for inline links when using the new variables.**
**D-01414 - Fixed when search doesn't return new items that have not been checked-in.**
**D-01453 - 7.3 and 7.2 Content editor URL missing sys_folderid parameter on validation failure**

## Additional Steps ##

###Additional information when using inline links (D-01417)###

There is now additional information available for inline links when you use the new variables added in this patch.  In order to use these new variables, enter the publishing design tab  in Rhythmyx and choose a Location theme from the Site_Folder_Assembly context.  This new information will allow you to view both the site id and the original site id when you follow through an inline link.

Original Variables:

`$sys.variables`

`$sys.site.id`

`$sys.site.path`

`$sys.site.globalTemplate`

`$sys.site.url`

The new Variables:

`$sys.orig.variables`

`$sys.orig.site.id`

`$sys.orig.site.path`

`$sys.orig.site.globalTemplate`

`$sys.orig.site.url`

A link to a page in the same site as the source item will have both sets of information be the same.  This information is important when linking from one site to another (cross site link);  previously
only the information from the destination site was available.

The location scheme testing panel in the location scheme editor of the Publishing Design tab now has the ability to set the Original and Destination Site.

################################################ Patch 730_20140214 ###################################################

## Changes In This Release ##

- Fixed issues when sys_folderid or sys_siteid exist in preview url without a value.
- Added new generate method for `$rx.location.generate` that allows passing of an assembly item for correct folder and site fixup, but allows overriding of the item , filter (e.g. "preview" or "public"), and context. Only the IPSAssemblyItem is required other values are set to defaults based upon context if null. Some error/warning messages have also been improved.
- Resolved missing commons-codec-1.3.jar in developer tools.

## Change List ##

**B-01480** - Removing the value of folderidstr and siteidstr will no longer cause an error during preview.
**D-01427** - Added new location generate parameters to handle missing case for customers where context of filter needed modifying.
**D-01438** - commons-codec-1.5.jar  has been changed to commons-codec-1.3.jar in buildDevToolsSource#2 in order to solve it from being missing.

## Additional Steps ##

Nothing needs to be done unless you see the following warning message in the server.log file.  If you are an advanced template developer you may be interested in the changed methods for future template design.

`method of $rx.location.generate with parameters templateinfo, item, folderpath, filter, siteid, context is deprecated`

Patch B-01331 Introduced a new version of `$rx.location.generate` that would allow site and folderid fixup to work correctly.

There was a required change in this patch (see instructions for B-01331) to the User Velocity Macros file to pass `$sys.assemblyItem` to make the current assembly folder
and site id available. This change deprecated the old method which also allowed the filter and the context to be specified.  Some customers may be using this legacy method in their own templates and a warning would be thrown.  The new version did not allow setting the filter or context.  This patch introduces another version of `$rx.location.generate` that allows setting the filter and context.

There are now three main versions of `$rx.location.generate` that can be used, excluding exsting methods using page number which have not changed.  In each case the folder and site id will be calculated and are obtained from the assemblyItem passed in and also using the folder and site fix up functionality if turned on. See Patch B-01299
This is the existing standard version used in rffSnTitleLink.  It generates a link to the default template of the item being rendered using the same context and filter

`public String generate(IPSAssemblyItem asm)`

example:

`$rx.location.generate($sys.assemblyItem)`

The following allows a template id or template name to be passed in and also the node to create the link to.  This will error if the template is not allowed for the content type of the item passed in but will use the default template if templateinfo is null and will use the current item if the item is null.

`public String generate(IPSAssemblyItem asm, Object templateinfo, Node item)`

example:

`$rx.location.generate($sys.assemblyItem, "rffPgEiGeneric", $sys.item)`

This is the same as above but also allows specifying a filter name and context.  These will be the same as the passed
in IPSAssemblyItem e.g. current page if null.

`public String generate(IPSAssemblyItem asm Object templateinfo, Node item, String filter, Number context)`

example:

`$rx.location.generate($sys.assemblyItem, "rffPgEiGeneric", "public" , 1)`

############################################## Patch 730_20140124 #####################################################

-  This patch contains code to support AjaxSwing currently in beta.
-  The clone wizard has been fixed.
-  Fixed issues with missing ephox images and html5 css file when upgrading from certain versions.

## Known Issues ##

-  See separate AjaxSwing document with know issues and changes related to the AjaxSwing implementation

## Additional Configuration: ##

 - See AjaxSwing installation guide for instructions.

## Change List ##

**D-01426** - Site Clone Wizard Failing        
**B-01472** - ephox images and rx_ephox_html5.css missing

############################################## Patch 730_20131220 #####################################################

- Updated patch Readme format based upon Markdown syntax.  Additional information is now placed by patch it represents, if upgrading from a previous patch check for configurations that may not have been included for other patch versions between your current and this patch.
- This patch includes support for UTF-8 in Taxonomy administration
- Improvements to how siteid and folder id in Ephox inline relationships are modified when the dependent item is moved, the relationship may not have been fixed up previously when the previous site or folder id were invalid.  Also resolves issues fixing up these ids when multiple sites are mapped to the same site folder path.  There would not be much impact of this when site fixup is turned on as the link would be fixed up on assembly.
- Fixes for unpublishing.  Using a relative path such as ../EI_Home.war as the publish path would prevent unpublish from working correctly.
- fixes to pass isRemoval flag on assembly item correctly when item is being unpublished as part of the regular unpublish then publish, or unpublish is occuring from use of sys_unpublishChangedLocation=true property
- Fix for folder/siteid fixup code to link by default to the site set for the parent snippet if it exists and the current relationships do not define a particular site or folder, this more closely resembles the old behavior in this case.
- Fixes for threading issues in Content Explorer Applet
- sys_lang was not being passed correctly from EditLive when requesting for translated version of Inline buttons and menus.
- Sets Background connection validation checking by default.  This can have a major performance improvement for publishing in particular.  May require manually adding for old connections see additional steps.
- Some other general error handling fixes

## Known Issues ##

There is a known performance problem when first starting up content explorer and using the template and content type grouping options.  It can initially takes a long time to cache some information the first time the menu actions are accessed, this is not resolved by fixing the caching config. If this is a problem the you can turn off this feature until we patch the issue in **rxconfig/Server/server.properties**

    templatesGroupingInCX=false
    contentTypeGroupingInCX=false

## Additional Steps ##

New connections now add background connection validation,  existing connections you may need to manually modify the connection properties.  Edit **AppServer/server/rx/deploy/rx-ds.xml** file and add the following lines within the local-tx-datasource element
 
          <background-validation>true</background-validation>
          <background-validation-millis>150000</background-validation-millis>
          <validate-on-match>false</validate-on-match>

################################################### Patch 730_20131125 ################################################

This patch includes a major performance improvemnt to the speed of incremental publishing when the core content list query selects from a large number of items. e.g. a large site with many thousands of items.  The order of processing has been modified to check the last modified date of all items before further processing or filtering.  

This patch also includes some enhancements to the folder/site fixup code, a memory leak that would only be apparent when publishing many times over many days without a server restart. Also a change to improve the performance of the Publishing Design tab that was more apparent for a customer who has over 300 sites.


**D-01398** Improve Caching of menu actions where only "targetStyle","target","launchesWindow" have changed.

If multiple Preview menu actions are created where only these properties are changed.  For example if options for different window sizes, this change prevents multiple calls to the server for the list of templates improving performance.  This is for a very particular use case where multiple menu options were being used where the only difference is the popup window size.

**D-01393** Resolved error when linking to items under //Folders

Adding templates to slots from under //Folders structure was causing an error.  It is still an error if we are attempting to generate a location to one of these items e.g. using rffSnTitleLink as the item does not have a publishing location within the site, but a reference to a callout stored in this structure e.g. rffBrief items or external link items would be allowed now.
   
**D-01399** Run Incremental filter before all others

Publishing and item goes through a series of steps to filter out the items from the content list query.   The incremental filter looks at the last modified date and was running after other filters.  This filter often removes most items from the list most quickly,  this has been moved to the first step and should improve performance for building the incremental content list for large sites where not many or no items have changed
        
**D-01396** Publishing Design Tab takes a long time to load   

Improves performance when there are a large number of sites.
   
**D-01402** Slow memory leak when using transactional publishing over many iterations

A reference to temporary files used in transactional publishing was not being cleared. This could cause the memory usage to increase slowly over many days when continuously publishing
   
############################################### Patch B-01383 #########################################################

The main purpose of this patch was to provide support for Java 7u45.  We recommend and support the latest version of the JRE to make sure our customers have the latest security fixes.  If this patch is installed and a user is on a previous JRE version they may see some serurity warnings return.

## Change List ##

**TK-01923** Updates for Java 7u45

Oracle added further changes to the security model in Java 7u45 requring developer changes to the packaging of applet code. This update
   addresses these issues and removes security warnings caused by the changes.  The required chages are incompatible with changes required since
   Java 7u21 to remove warning dialogs.  Unless the client JRE is updated to update 45 these warnings will return with this patch to users
   currently using older JRE versions since update 21.
 
   As with previous version since Java 7u21 users may still see a dialog from the Publisher PERCUSSION SOFTWARE and when accessing the Editor form
   from Ephox Corporation.  These will warn the following
 
   "This application will run with unrestricted access which may put your computer and personal information at risk.  Run this application only if you
   trust the location and publisher above"
 
   This warning is now required for the applets to function and communicate with the browser via Javascript.
 
   If the user selected the checkbox against "Do not show this again for apps from the publisher and location above" they should not see these dialogs
   again.
 
   We recommend that all customers update to this Patch and Java version to take advantage of the security fixes Oracle have added in this release.
             
################################################### Patch B-01331 #####################################################

**Note** the improved template processing and Ephox may not work with old XSLT style templates from version 5.7 and before of the product and we suggest these templates are upgraded before upgrading to 7.3 or this patch.
This patch also uses a variety of other fixes listed below.

## Change List ##

**B-01300** Changed parser to remove extra HTMLTidy process and handle content that may not be well formed xml.

  Ephox has been updated also to version 9 in this process.  This change has many improvements over the existing
  field processing.  White space and other non xml content are now handled with minimal re-formatting.  Spacing
  from inline templates is now passed through without change so templates should be reviewed if a particular
  spacing/format is require.
  See the separate document for the full information about the changes.

**B-01321** Preview is not passing additional HTTP Parameters

Extra html parameters set up in workbench for Menus are now passed through to preview url making them available to template.
        
**B-01294** FTP unpublish issue

The file path for unpublish was sometimes miscalculated with ftp publishing causing unpublish failure.

**D-01189** Patch for folder and site ids improvements and fixes

See Additional Configuration from Patch B-01299
        
**D-01024** In content editor, calendar control's Today button does not populate current date calendar control

Control has been updated to a jquery control.  The "time" control parameter is still used to indicate if the date or both date and time should be used.
        
**D-01226** Adding a field to Contact Content type - Workbench Freezes

Adding and Removing fields no longer causes entire content table to be copied.  Changing field data type will still clone and recreate table.  A warning is provided as this can take a long time for large content tables and those containing binaries.
        
**D-01256** System validates for email id for notification even if notification is not enabled in workflow transition

Email address for all uses in transition role was being retrieved from LDAP even when no notification was being sent.
        
**D-01298** Error in assembly is not causing publishing failure

Some errors in assembly were not triggering failure of page to be published and error message would be delivered.

## Additional Steps ##

  **D-01226**
  The extra warning messages and prevention of table cloning on field deletion will not be available unless Workbench is upgraded.  This patch
  provides a new workbench version which can be downloaded from the server from the following path.
  http://{host}:{port}/Rhythmyx/Administration/DeveloperTools/InstData/Windows/VM/devToolsSetup.exe

## Modify User Velocity Macros ##

An old form of `$rx.location.generate` used in imghelp macro which comes with the Fast Forward User Velocity macros file does
  not handle items in multiple folders well.  To make use of the folder and site fixup here, you should change this to pass
  `$sys.assemblyItem` as a parameter.  This allows the function to accesse the original site and folderid of the page in caluclating
  the correct folder and site for the passed in node.  Some of the other parameters on this method are no longer required as the
  values can be obtained from the `$sys.assemblyItem`.  This should be changed elswhere in the template code it is also used with these
  same parameters.
 
  Change the following line in User Velocity Macros:
  `#macro(imghelp $image $template)$rx.location.generate($template, $image, $rx.location.folderPath($image),$sys.assemblyItem.getFilter().getName(), $sys.assemblyItem.getSiteId().longValue(), $tools.number.toNumber($tools.list.get($sys.params.get('sys_context'), 0)) )#end`
  to:
 ` #macro(imghelp $image $template)$rx.location.generate($sys.assemblyItem, $template, $image)#end`
 

**B-01300**
  Review the separate document outlining the changes to Ephox and check if inline template code requires modifications.

############################################# Patch B-01299 ###########################################################

This patch enables a new process to contexually calculate a valid site and folder id for a relationship based upon where it is being run.  This takes into account the current folder and site id of the root page being assembled as well as any folder and site id that were specified in the relationship when the link was created.  Before this broken links may occur if in the following cases due to the wrong folder site id.

- No folder id passed, from a view, or search result
- dependent items in multiple folders or sites (Copy as Link)
- Multiple sites with the same root folder path

Note further enhancements to this have been made to more recent patches, it is suggested you upgrade this patch version.

This new feature allows the system to resolve the link path based on several criteria:

1. Only one item: If an item is in only one folder in the entire system this feature should always link to only that
  item.

2. One or more copy of an item: If a copy of an item is created using copy as link, the system automatically
  calculates the right item version to link to even if the include folder or site was not selected in the content
  browser.  If include folder or site was not selected, the system will assume that the link is to the version that is
  in the closest folder path. Please note that for some unknown reason if such links are still broken, recreating the
  links by including the folder path in the content browser will ensure that the correct version of the item is linked.

  Example use case: The original version of an item is in the local site, but you want to link to the copy of this
  item from another site.
3.  Multiple sites with same folder path: There may be cases where more than one site is configured pointing to the
  same folder path. Such sites configurations allow publish the same site content to multiple servers like staging, qa
  or production. If you currently have this setup, turning on autofixFolderSiteIds feature will log errors to indicate  that additional configuration is required. If you have this configuration of see these messages in the server.log file see below for additional configuration.

## Change List ##

**D-01189** Publishing to Staging server de-activates "Rx inline links"

## Additional Configuration ##

 * **D-01189**   Fixup site and folder ids

By default this feature is disabled. To enable add `autofixFolderSiteIds=true` property in
 **Root/rxconfig/Server/server.properties** file.

 Some customers have more than one site definition pointing to the same root folder path in Content Explorer.  Doing this would originally could numerous issues when linking between sites,  this is becuase the system would treat the different site definitions the cause we now need to decide which of the site ids we link to when linking to an item in that folder.  This works by assuming that one of the sites is the default,  this would be the one we would link to if we have no further information.  In a configuration where we have separate site definitions for development, staging and production sites pointing at the same path the production would normally be the default.  Every other site with the same path needs to be assigned a group, e.g. development and staging groups.

The concept is that if we are publishing a development version of a site we would always link to a development version of another, site if available, if the other site does not have a development version we would create a link to the production version.

Once you have decided which site groups you have you need to modify the rxconfig/Server/server.properties file to mark which sites are in which group.  We do not need to include the default sites.

The site groups are configured using the following structure the groupName can be any name to identify the group.  the property is set to a comma delimeted list of all sites in that group.

 `siteGroups.<groupName>=<siteid>[,siteid]`

 if staging site id is 305 then in server.properties file to
  create staging site group you need to have `siteGroups.staging=305`.  In case of multiple staging sites in the system,
  separate the site ids by comma as `siteGroups.staging=305,307`.

You will see errors in the server.log file if you map the same site to more than one group, if you allocate all sites to groups (e.g. no default), or if there is more than one site still without a group set.
