Informatica RulePoint - 6.0.1 - Release Notes - (English)

Informatica RulePoint 6.0 ships with the following new features and benefits. 


Feature summary

  • Separation of design and runtime environments, new UI
  • Grid ready runtime Topology and components that support vertical, horizontal scaling
  • Design repository to hold multiple enterprise CEP projects, deployable on single runtime Topology
  • No loss data exchange infrastructure built on Ultra Messaging Persistence
  • System managed failover, fault-tolerance


Unified web based development, administration user interface:


  • Role-specific segmentation of views for developers, administrators, and other user-defined roles
  • Projects support to build and manage multiple applications in a single design repository
  • Workspace views for multi-object authoring for sources, rules, and responders
  • Graphical view of related objects across object types for impact and lineage
  • Dynamic loading of custom sources, analytics, responders into the design-time and run-time environment using OSGi
  • Filtering of objects by all related objects
  • Integrated run-time topology management to manage hosts, nodes and components
  • Live deploy, undeploy, re-deploy, re-assign of objects across topology
  • Define deployment policies for rule templates
  • Integrated run-time dashboard with service and object states, activity info over time series, resource utilization and incoming events and outgoing alerts.
  • Integrated Real-Time Alert Manager


Programming model enhancements


  • New object type, called connections
  • Dynamic schedules for all sources
  • Pluggable marshallers to enrich events
  • Pluggable unmarshallers to enrich responses
  • Additional geospatial, math, and string analytics, which amount to 57 built-in analytics

  • New object lifecycle states to support topology deployment, policies and re-assign
  • Rule language (DRQL) changes – slide, tumble support, group by, distinct selector, remove post operators


Runtime performance, scalability and reliability

  • Ability to build a run-time topology that consists of N hosts - each host with N nodes, each node with N event processing components, and each component with N user deployed application objects
  • Source controller to vertically and horizontally scale, partition, and isolate source executions
  • Event processor to vertically and horizontally scale, partition, and isolate rule executions
  • Responder controller to vertically and horizontally scale, partition, and isolate responder executions
