Navigator 10.2 release is finalizing now
Navigator 10.2 is finalizing as you read this newsletter. This release has a number of new features, a couple of which we will cover in this month’s newsletter. For a detailed review, see the release notes and documentation.
Advanced Viewlet Filtering
For advanced users, this allows easy access to the commonly changed options for a viewlet. You can quickly change from one node, queue manager, or object to another. You can also quickly switch between local, remote, alias, and all queues. You can also quickly activate or deactivate an attribute or message filter. In the screenshot, an XMITQ filter has been applied. You can also switch on and off empty or system queues. The changes are saved just as if you went in and selected edit viewlet, but with significant time savings. Specific options available vary by viewlet type. The advanced view filtering setting is configurable in user and global settings.
A bit of color
While the dark style sheet is popular with many people, some prefer a bit of color to their displays. Every product, object type, and viewlet can have its own color. How creative you want to be is up to you. The color pallet can be configured in global settings, activated, and overridden at a user level as well as in the viewlet itself.
IIB and ACE support
IBM Integration Bus and App Connect Enterprise are now available as a managed systems supported by Nastel Navigator. If you are interested in using these in your environment, contact your account manager for information.
