BI Publisher Toolbox 4.5

BI Publisher Toolbox Development Suite Fixes Part III

Last series of updates!!!

A new version of the BI Publisher Toolbox has been released. The following things are fixed in version 4.5
  • Bursting Designer randomly crashes when bursting
There are several reasons why the Bursting Designer crashes. It mainly has to do with incorrect or blank data. So, I've coded so more validation to catch these problems before a control file is run. You will still be able to enter invalid file paths (just not in the bursting designer). The following error messages will be displayed if you have incorrectly keyed data in your control file:
  1. Document output type cannot be null. See deliveries: [ something]
  2. Document key cannot be null. See deliveries: [ something]
  3. Document Delivery Id must be assigned!
  4. Template type must be populated!
  5. Template Location file-path is invalid
If the Bursting Designer still crashes please let me know and I'll fix it.

Download
The BI Publisher Toolbox can be downloaded here. I'm still working on the standalone version of the application. Should be available for download in the next couple of days. I'll update the blog when it's out there!
