New Features Common to All Modules of 8.0 GA¶
This section lists the new features related to all the modules of the Denodo Platform 8.0.
To read about the new features of the latest update, go to What Is New in Denodo 8.0 Update 20210209.
Java Runtime Environment¶
The Denodo Platform now runs with the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 11. The Denodo servers and its tools cannot run with earlier Java versions.
Client applications can load the Denodo JDBC driver if they run with Java 8, 9, 10 or 11.
Denodo SSL/TLS Configurator Script¶
There is a new script called Denodo SSL/TLS Configurator Script that simplifies the process of enabling SSL. This script modifies all the configuration properties of all the components of the installation where you run it. It works for the installation of the Denodo Platform and Solution Manager. You still have to generate or obtain a keystore (that is, the file with the private key) and export its public key to a file.
This script is located in
<DENODO_HOME/bin/denodo_tls_configurator. It is available in the installation of the Denodo Platform and the Solution Manager.
The section Denodo SSL/TLS Configurator Script of the Installation Guide explains how to use it.
New Supported Operating System¶
Added support for Windows Server 2019
All Components Are Installed as Windows Services¶
In previous versions, when you install the Denodo Platform on Windows, the installer creates a Windows service for some components but not for these ones:
Scheduler Administration Tool
Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool
Solution Manager Administration Tool
In Denodo 8.0, the installer for Windows also creates a Windows service for each of these components. You still have to do the post-installation task Configure Windows Services.
Web Container of Denodo¶
New Version of the Web Container: Apache Tomcat 9.0¶
The embedded web container of Denodo has been upgraded to Apache Tomcat 9.0. This version provides more stability, better performance and better memory management than the version included in earlier versions of Denodo.
Future updates of Denodo may update the version of Tomcat to benefit from enhancements and security fixes. Find the exact version of Tomcat used in your installation in the file
Only Allow TLS 1.2 and 1.3¶
When you enable TLS on the web container, only TLSv1.2 and TLSv1.3 connections are allowed. The previous SSL/TLS protocols are disabled because they are no longer considered secure.
