I’ll start with the good stuff. Starting with Jakarta, SNI is supported! If you need to enable it, create a system property named glide.outbound.tls_sni.enabled and set the value to true. After you set this property, it make take up to 30 seconds for the change to take effect. If you’re using a MID server, create a MID server property with the same name and restart the MID Server. If you don’t know what SNI is, don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Jakarta introduces an exciting new feature called the Guided Tour Designer. Guided tours interactively walk users through the major components of an application. Here’s a 30 second animation that demonstrates a Guided Tour in action on the SLA Definition table.
The Guided Tour Designer allows you to build tours like the one you saw in the animation into the applications you create. In this post, I’m going to walk through the process of creating a simple guided tour for the “NeedIt” application used in the Developer Training content.
