With this edition of our Developer Newsletter we inform you about the latest features and bug fixes of the BRIDGE 7 software components. As usual, you can find all details in our release notes that are provided in our Online Documentation.
You can mark attributes of a persistent state class as external by applying stereotype <<External>>. This can speed-up persistent state performance if you have huge data objects (like e.g. big blobs, IDocs or PDFs) that are only used in few transitions.
External persistent data is handled differently compared to the internal data:
As of BRIDGE 7.6.0, you can specify a number of days that log files should be kept – older log files will be deleted automatically. Default value is 30 days.
With the Caching Resources policy it is possible to cache requests based on their URL path, HTTP method and HTTP status code. This allows reducing overall traffic to the backend API.
The size of the cache to be used can be defined in the Advanced API Management Settings.
After updating to version 7.5.0, you can download the configuration file of the new policy from our documentation and upload it to your instance of API Management (see the release notes).
