What's in it for you?

  • Xref with FTP, SFTP, SMB.
  • Xref with sources on an IBM i IASP.
  • Parallel checkout Xref locations.
  • Additional enhancements to boost your user experience.

Attachment size limit

Now it is possible to configure the maximum file upload size, enabling more consistency and control for those who need it.

Xref with FTP, SFTP, SMB

We have further extended Xref, our advanced cross-reference and impact-analysis for IBM i and multi-platform. For sources not located in a repository, an Xref location can now be provisioned using file transfer mechanisms such as SFTP and SMB (Windows share). The location type "Files" will accommodate the file transfer protocol FTP, FTPS, SFTP, SMB and local file copy.

Xref with sources on an IBM i IASP

And now, if you have source libraries located on the IBM i that are stored on an independent auxiliary storage pool (IASP), Xref can access them by providing the fully qualified location of a source library.

Parallel checkout for Xref locations

Previously when adding a new location for Xref, the process was to create the location and then index all the sources, running in a sequential manner. The sequential jobs would slow down the overall Xref indexing process if a location had an exceedingly large set of sources. With the release of Milestone 2 we have modified this process to run in parallel. Now you can submit multiple checkout jobs to run parallel, speeding up the process.
