QAnywhere new features

Transmission rule enhancements
  • Remote message store properties now synchronized   When you set remote message store properties, those properties are now synchronized to the server message store so that they can be used in transmission rules.

  • Enhanced message store properties   The ias_Network property now contains fields you can use to access detailed network information.

    See Client message store properties.

    In addition, you can now create customized message store properties.

  • Rules for deleting messages   You can now specify transmission rules for the persistence of messages in the message stores. You can delete messages on the client side and server side.

    See Transmission rules.

QAnywhere Agent enhancements
  • Connection string   To start the local message store, you can now specify a connection string with the qaagent -c option. This allows you to use Adaptive Server Anywhere connection string parameters.

    See -c option.

  • Quiet mode   The QAnywhere Agent now supports two flavors of quiet mode, which can avoid problems on some Windows CE devices.

    See -q option and -qi option.

  • QAstop utility   When you start the QAnywhere Agent in quiet mode with the -qi option, you must use the new qastop utility to stop it.

    See -qi option.

  • Enhanced verbosity   You can now specify output log file names with the -o or -ot option, and regulate the size of the output files with the -os and -ot options. In addition, the -v option replaces the old -verbose option. With -v, you have greater control over logging output.


  • Initialize database for use as a remote message store   You can use the new qaagent -si option to set up a remote message store. See -si option.

  • Upgrade from version 9.0.1   The QAnywhere Agent has a new option, -su, that upgrades a remote message store from version 9.0.1 to 9.0.2.

    See -su option.
