TI Configuration Tool issues that are fixed
The TI Configuration Tool does not detect an empty "Link To Program" property
The TI Configuration Tool does not detect that the Link To Program property is empty when a host-initiated processing (HIP) resolution entry is saved. After you apply this update, the TI Configuration Tool verifies that the Link To Program property contains a value for ELM Link, TRM Link, and SNA Link resolution entries.
The TI Configuration Tool does not validate methods that are assigned to the implementing assembly
After you apply this update, the TI Configuration Tool verifies that the implementing assembly has at least one method that is assigned after the interface is selected or reselected. If the number of methods is zero, an error message is displayed. This change makes sure that the OK button to save the changes is disabled until all properties have valid content.
The TI Configuration Tool does not enforce the correct "Request Header Format" property setting for TRM Link and ELM Link HIP services
The TI Configuration Tool incorrectly lets the Request Header Format property to be set to either Microsoft or IbmSuppliedUserExit for HIP services that are defined to use TRM Link or ELM Link. After you apply this update, the TI Configuration Tool lets only Microsoft be used for the Request Header Format value for HIP services that use TRM Link or ELM Link. HIP services that use ELM User Data can use either Microsoft or IbmSuppliedUserExit for the Request Header Format property.
The TI Configuration Tool saves only TI-related data
You load a configuration file that contains TI and web configuration data into the TI Configuration Tool. For example, you load a Web.config file. When you make some changes and then save the configuration file, you may have a configuration file that contains only the TI-related information.
This update for the TI Configuration Tool includes some additional usability improvements and fixes.
