New configuration properties have been implemented to customize editing in GUI controls:
- iscobol.gui.kbd_case=lower/upper used to force characters casing in GUI controls
- iscobol.gui.entryfield.implied_decimal=true to have implied decimal values on entry-fields, based on the number of decimal digits defined in the picture in the associated variable of the entry field.
New configuration settings and library routines have been implemented to further simplify migration from other COBOL dialects.
The isCOBOL log has been enhanced by adding the ability to include date and time information in both the log file path and the file name. This is useful when logging on isCOBOL Application Server or a J2EE server, where running applications usually generate several log files. Log files, for example, can be grouped in folders based on the date and time in which log entries are created.
Moreover, the Logger object is now accessible to isCOBOL programs, allowing them to write additional information with customizable log levels.
