184.108.40.206. RTI Infrastructure Services
220.127.116.11.1. Use <domain_participant_qos> tag instead of <participant_qos> tag to be compliant with DDS-XML specification
In Connext 7, the following Infrastructure Services products now allow use of the
<domain_participant_qos> tag in place of the
Routing Service, Recording Service, Persistence Service, and
Cloud Discovery Service. This change was already made to XML-Based Application
creation and QoS profiles in the Core Libraries in 6.1.0.
(See Section 18.104.22.168.) Now the mentioned Infrastructure
Services have also applied the change. This change was made to the schema file
rti_service_common_definitions.xsd and its included files to make them
compliant with the
<participant_qos> tag is still supported for backward
compatibility, you should transition to the new tag,
22.214.171.124.2. Removals in Cloud Discovery Service
126.96.36.199.2.2. domain_id_info_seq field in DatabasePeriodic type used in monitoring removed
@optional sequence<DomainIdInfo> domain_id_info_seq field in the
DatabasePeriodic type used for Monitoring, in RTI Cloud Discovery Service,
and defined in
CdsMonitoring.idl, has been removed.
You will not be able to use your
CdsMonitoring.idl file from your release
6.1.2 or earlier application to subscribe to monitoring data published by
your Connext 7 application, and vice versa. If you have Cloud Discovery Service
in both Connext 7 and a previous release, you will need to create different
DataReaders for each monitoring Topic for each release.
188.8.131.52.3. Persistence Service
184.108.40.206.3.1. Durable writer history, durable reader state, and Persistence Service no longer support external databases
See Section 220.127.116.11.1 for details.
18.104.22.168.3.2. Incompatible persistent storage (database) format
In release 7, the schema of the persistent storage files and tables created by Persistence Service to store DDS samples and instances has changed. Therefore, you cannot use the files and/or tables generated with previous releases of Persistence Service with Connext 7. If you have this requirement, contact RTI Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
22.214.171.124.3.3. Default journal_mode and synchronization values have changed
In release 7, the default values for the following configuration parameters in Persistence Service have changed:
<journal_mode>: changed from DELETE to WAL
<synchronization>: changed from OFF to NORMAL
This change provides the best out-of-box performance without sacrificing database integrity in the event of a crash or power failure. RTI does not expect your performance to be affected negatively by this change.
See Configuring Persistent Storage, in the RTI Connext Core Libraries User’s Manual for more information on these parameters.
126.96.36.199.3.4. Web Integration Service no longer installed in separate package
As described in What’s New in 7.1.0, in the Web Integration Service Release Notes, Web Integration Service is now installed with Connext Professional, you will no longer find a separate installation package for it. There are no migration tasks associated with this change. Every file is located in the same path, your XML configurations will work, you’ll find scripts and examples in the same path.
Note that if you need to use Web Integration Service on a platform for which
there is no host installer (e.g., ARM Linux), you will need to install the
Connext Professional target
.rtipkg package for that platform.
