IssuesResolved Issues
This maintenance release specifically resolves several known issues listed in the Fixes document, addresses various customer requests, and proactively corrects several problems that address Oracle's ongoing Java security code changes the following versions introduced:
  • Java 1.7.0_21 -- introduced a string parsing change that prevented execution of programs that contained spaces in the file or path name, affecting both Netbeans and the SCALL Verb.
  • Java 1.7.0_25 -- introduced a change that negatively affected the display of SysConsole in the Thin Client when launched via Web Start in BBj versions prior to 13.02.
  • Java 1.7.0_40 -- BASIS provided an automated process for BBj applications to conform to new stricter security requirements when distributed via Web Start.
  • Java 1.7.0_45 -- BASIS implemented new requirements for JAR files used by Web Start applications to protect end-users against unauthorized use of third party code.

BASIS strongly recommends installing the latest Java 7 update 45. In addition to the latest security fixes, this version includes support for the Mac OS X Retina Display. BBj and all of your GUI and SysConsole-based Business BASIC applications now display at native resolution on retina-capable devices, resulting in razor sharp text and increased legibility.

AddonAddonSoftware - 14.0 Preview Features
The Shop Floor Materials and Subcontracts files contain a new alpha-numeric reference number field that gives the user more control and flexibility when correlating materials and subcontracts to drawings. When processing materials, there is also a new "auto-number" function that lets the user specify the beginning and ending row to auto-number, the first alphanumeric number to use, and an increment, making it possible to quickly and easily auto-number (or re-number) an entire list of materials or subsets of the list.
The Work Order Detail and Traveler reports are re-designed for efficiency, producing more compact output while maintaining readability by adding a "green bar" effect.
AddonSoftware JasperReports now offer one-click saving in .pdf format, as well as an email button to launch the Barista fax/email form so you can add Jasper-based .pdf documents to the Document Processing Queue. Jasper documents saved as .pdf are also now recorded in the Barista document archive so they can be recalled from Document Inquiry.
