Corretto FAQS

Q: Can I use Corretto as a drop-in replacement for other JDKs?

A: Corretto is designed as a drop-in replacement for all Java SE distributions unless you are using features (e.g., Java Flight Recorder) not available in OpenJDK. Once Corretto binaries are installed on a host and correctly invoked to run your Java applications (e.g., using the alternatives command on Linux), existing command-line options, tuning parameters, monitoring, and anything else in place will continue to work as before.

ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and Business Process Improvement

Traction Software partner impi! Solutions uses TeamPage as a framework to deliver client specific ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and general Business Improvement Services, see impi! and TeamPage Reduce Administration of Document Control and Aug 2018 | TeamPage ISO 9001:2015 Solution adds integrated Risk and Improvement Project Management.

Unlike traditional consulting and business improvement firms who deliver reports that are too often tossed over a wall and ignored, impi! experts work side by side as members of their client's secure TeamPage community to quickly answer everyday questions, spot potential problems or opportunities, and provide mentoring for effective definition and use of an improved business process tailored for that client. This is particularly valuable for small to mid-size business who don't have a dedicated staff or experience to handle introduction and use of a ISO 9001:2015 continuous improvement process. Impi! clients learn by doing - with impi!'s expert support.

Some TeamPage elements of a full impi! solution are also available a la carte, such as the impi Standard Meeting Plug-in for TeamPage, please contact us for information. Winter 2020 TeamPage impi! solution bug fixes and improvements include:

  • Improvement Project Dashboards now split display of Issues into Open Issues and Closed Issues sections.

Other Highlights

  • Improved full text search performance for queries that have multiple search terms.

  • Fixed a bug that could sometimes prevent TeamPage from sending email notifications to all the users who should receive them when a new event entry is created.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented TeamPage from determining the dimensions of images added via a Status Update form, which could prevent the image's dimensions from being properly constrained for display purposes in various contexts.
  • Added support for custom filter search expressions that reference attachment file properties.
  • Added a server level setting that allows administrators to customize which sources should be used to generate type-ahead suggestions for TeamPage's search box.
  • Improved styling for SDL tags and other inline elements.
  • Updated the version of Apache Commons Lang3 library that ships with TeamPage to 3.9.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause rotated log files to be deleted or archived (compressed) before they should have been according to the log file archiving and deletion policy.
  • Fixed a bug in the Signature Requirements add-on module that prevented the signatures summary from being displayed in email digests.
  • When a user is looking at a project or milestone dashboard, and uses one of the Add buttons to create a new entry (e.g., a new task or a new related article), TeamPage now refreshes the dashboard rather than navigating to a single entry view of the newly created entry.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent type-ahead completion from being able to use a connected external search engine to resolve queries that requested multiple specific types of entries (e.g., milestones and projects).
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent unexpected errors from being reported when an administrator attempts to deactivate a space or user.
  • Optimized the queries used for Updated and Discussions pages, and the corresponding Updated and Discussions sections; and optimized the way searches are applied to the results from those queries.
  • Improved optimization for native TeamPage queries by removing redundant search terms and detecting cases where no results would ever be returned without executing the query.
  • Improved the logging of certain types of administrative operations, such as activating or deactivating a space or a user account, or activated draft mode for a particular space.
  • Improve web admin interface. Server settings > General > Current Journal > Journal Info now shows some basic statistics about the current journal, including the total number of journal entries, total and active user and space counts, and the byte size of the main journal database.

  • Improved the error messages displayed to users when external search engine queries fail.

  • Improved defenses against cross-site request forgery attacks when handling certain kinds of requests.

  • Added the ability to download all content of a folder from a Documents page as a single .zip file. The .zip file download link now appears at the top of each Documents view.
