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
  • Ability to configure rules to run concurrently for out-of-order processing of events
  • 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
  • Activity manager to collect and store statistics of all objects across the topology
  • Grid manager to manage deployment, lifecycle, and resilience of runtime components across a grid of physical hosts
  • Ability to run event processing services in standalone mode and high-availability mode
  • Guaranteed event delivery and processing data exchange infrastructure by using Ultra Messaging Persistence
  • Parallel persistence of all incoming events and activations for recovering states across cold restarts in the topology
  • Support for creating multiple stores for guaranteed persistence to guard against disk failures
  • Database support for source controller state synchronization between primary and secondary instances
  • Ultra Messaging support for event processor state synchronization between primary and secondary instances
  • On single host topology - performance improvement up to 2x from earlier RulePoint releases that run on the same hardware, based on an internal benchmarks.


Installation, Security, and Administration


  • Support for graphical and console-based installation, along with bundled dependencies -  JDK 1.7.0_11, Tomcat 7.0.25, Ultra Messaging Persistence 6.1, DataDirect drivers, Real Time Alert
  • Ability to host design-time metadata and run-time data on single or separate databases
  • Ability to create and configure the default topology, with the event processing services, during installation
  • Sample project with all object types, custom service sources
  • Spring 3.1 security enhancements, with support for a wide range of external authentication modules.
  • Configure, enable, or disable LDAP-based security management through the user interface
  • Control deployments to the run-time topology through object-level permissions
  • Bring up and shut down the topology across a grid of hosts using a single command line tool
  • Error codes and descriptions for errors in the design-time and run-time environment
  • Command line tool to collect and package topology configuration and logs for customer support analysis
  • Email alerts for reporting failure in the topology and services
  • Support to reset the topology if there are unrecoverable errors
