GLU.Ware – Release 3.1.0 – Released: 1 October 2023

Major Feature Enhancements

  • GLUW-2077 GLU.Engine Configuration Control Multi-Environment support

We have introduced a new feature in the GLU.Engine aimed at addressing a potential risk associated with testing and deploying the engine in production environments. This release focuses on providing a solution that allows for direct changes to the GLU.Engine without requiring a complete rebuild, reducing the possibility of introducing untested modifications.

Key Changes and Enhancements:

  • Exposed a set of configuration files within the GLU.Engine system. Configuration files can be found in the “../engine/config/” directory.

List of Exposed Configuration Files:

  1. application.yml
  2. camel-context.xml
  3. flows.json
  4. iso8583
  5. loggingSetting.xml
  6. menu.json

By exposing these configuration files, system administrators and developers gain direct access to the GLU.Engine’s core settings. This enables them to make necessary adjustments without the need for rebuilding the engine, mitigating the risk of introducing untested changes during production.

We believe that this enhancement will significantly improve the flexibility and efficiency of managing the GLU.Engine system. Users can now make targeted modifications to the engine’s configuration files as needed, ensuring a streamlined development and deployment process.

Please note that any modifications made to these configuration files should be carefully tested and reviewed before deploying them in a production environment.

For more information on how to utilise and modify the exposed configuration files, please refer to our support team.

Minor Feature Enhancements

  • GLUW-3888 We have added a timestamp on the dialogue box for the application settings, so it is possible to see when the last change to these settings was made.
  • GLUW-3308 Further enhancements to the automatic generation of Swagger exposed on the SERVER PORT under the URL /swagger. Please note that the Swagger documentation remains compliant with the OpenAPI 2.0 specification. For more information on this please refer to Swagger – OpenAPI 3.0
