New: Universal File Mover v1.2.1

Capitalware is pleased to announce the release of Universal File Mover v1.2.1. It is a free open source project.

Universal File Mover is more than a simple tool to manage the transfer of files. It allows the user to combine business processes into a workflow. The user combines a series of Action commands to create the UFM Workflow XML file. UFM is supported on AIX, HP-UX, IBM i (OS/400), Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris and Windows.

    Changes:

  • Added reconnection code to MQReceive (and for Status Queue connection) and now it will wait forever to reconnect.
  • Added code to get and display MQ JAR version
  • Added “catch (Exception e)” clauses in UFM’s MQ code to prevent unhandled exceptions
  • Updated Shell Scripts (32-bit & 64-bit) to correctly handle the MQ_JAVA_LIB_PATH environment variable

For more information on Universal File Mover, please go to:
http://www.capitalware.com/ufm_overview.html

Note: When upgrading UFM from an ealier release, please remember to deploy the receiver side first because the MQSend action defaults to use MQ properties. There is a new MQSend attribute called ‘usev7prop’. It defaults to ‘Y’. The user can set the ‘usev7prop’ attribute to ‘N’ and it will use the old style handling for the Remote FileName and Directory.

Apple to Open Source Swift

Today at WWDC 2015, Apple announced that it will open source its Swift language:
https://developer.apple.com/swift/blog/?id=29
http://arstechnica.com/apple/2015/06/apple-open-sources-swift/

And the best part of the announcement, is that Linux will be supported. As SNL’s church lady would say “Well, isn’t that SPE-CIAL?”. :)

Debian 8.1 Released

Debian Project has just released Debian 8.1.
https://www.debian.org/News/2015/20150606

Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an operating system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project; hence the name GNU/Linux.

Perl is a high-level programming language with an eclectic heritage written by Larry Wall and a cast of thousands. It derives from the ubiquitous C programming language and to a lesser extent from sed, awk, the Unix shell, and at least a dozen other tools and languages.
