I built a journal extraction tool many years ago that did just that - it provides the ability to specify where the file structure is. Even that isn't perfect, because one journal receiver, or a range of receivers being extracted, can have entries from both before and after a file structure change. I never took the time to attempt dealing with that situation. Journal entry extraction also gets difficult when the receivers contain CLOB, BLOB, Datalink, and potentially some of the other, newer, special data types. I never took the time to attempt dealing with those special data types either. Even with those limitations, having a journal extraction tool that yields easily query-able data has been of huge benefit in diagnosing production and testing/debugging issues.

Hi Frank,

"* Journal Explorer (This will be a big step forward for all who are using journals and have the need to search for specific records. Field JOESD will be broken into the single fields)"

Graet idea!

I would like to underline a detail about JOESD into single fields. Thomas Raddatz did a great job in EXPJRNE but there is a problem. Since file's structure is retriverd using the ACTUAL file definition if you query a period in which the file had a diffrent structure (less or more fields) you get a mismatch copying JOESD into the actual structure. So I think would be a good idea having a parameter to choose the library/file name as the source of structure retriving.

Buck,

here are some features we plan to implement. This is also the order we
plan to implement.

* Feature requests with low efforts e.G. specifying from and to column
when starting the compare editor.

* Better support for filter pools in iSphere RSE Filter Management.

* Adopting Messages Subsystem from RSE Extensions Plugin.

* Import and Export feature for RSE Compile Commands in the way the
iSphere RSE Filter Management provides this.

* Import and Export feature for RSE User Actions in the way the
iSphere RSE Filter Management provides this.

* Journal Explorer (This will be a big step forward for all who are
using journals and have the need to search for specific records. Field
JOESD will be broken into the single fields)

* Data Area Editor

...

You see there is a lot to do.

Just for all who are thinking I am Nerd and having nothing better to
do than spending all my time in developing open source products. This
is my job and I earn my money with this. All our open source products
are seamless integrated into our other commercial products.

Here is an announcement for another open source project of Task Force
which will be released probably in two weeks. It`s called Rapid Fire.
With Rapid Fire you can convert files with billions of records without
having the users to leave the application except in the final stage.
This reduces downtime of your system from hours or even days to
minutes. There are other tools out there providing such a feature like
MIMIX Promoter, Arcad WAP and Turnover PDQ. But those ones are not for
free.

Frank

Hi Frank,
The whole idea of enhancement to open source is interesting to me
personally. I see there's a list of ideas here:
http://sourceforge.net/p/isphere/wiki/IdeasForImprovments/ Will this
be maintained as you continue work on iSphere? I'm not asking you to
do extra work; if you have a Kanban board that you use to organise
your work, I'd love to have read-only access to it :-)

It's all very cool, thanks!
