30 October 2020

Functional changes

Ease-of-use updates

    • Order creation/capture: B2C Commerce -> Order Management System (OMS): Taking orders created in B2C Commerce and pushing them to an external OMS.
      • Export schedule is set in B2C Commerce by the administrator user.
    • Order status update: OMS -> B2C Commerce: Keeping B2C Commerce updated with the status of an order, pulled from an external OMS.
      • An administrator sets the schedule for export of order status to B2C Commerce

24 April 2020


Change summary

The focus of release 1.1 is on increasing ease of use and enhancing developer experience.

  • NEW: Scripts for building and deploying all Accelerator assets, in the right order, to simplify and accelerate deployment. Each script is ready to run except for configuration values - look for the string "REPLACE_BY_USER"; all such values are mandatory and must be set to legitimate values to get a useful result.
    • The parent-POM project will build all components of the Accelerator suite, automatically in the right order
    • Included: Bash and Windows scripts to build and deploy all applications with one command.
    • Included: Bash and Windows scripts with each project to deploy that project alone. Building projects individually is possible but take care to use the parent-POM to build everything if any child components (eg. core services) are changed.
  • NEW: Apart from SAP proprietary JARs (which we cannot distribute), the assets in the Accelerator are self-contained; there is no need to download and install anything else. Once the SAP JARs appropriate for your platform are acquired and installed, one Maven command will build all the APIs in one step.
  • UPDATED: All templates were updated with the most current connectors.

*Note: Salesforce topic-listener API was not upgraded

  • UPDATED: Outbound connectors are all configured with retry. Retry-configuration is externalized.
  • UPDATED: All configuration values for connectors are externalized as before. To enable rapid configuration, password-encryption has been removed. All passwords/secrets are configured using hidden properties for CloudHub deployments.Out-of-the-box configuration within the connector simplifies deployments to CloudHub.
  • REMOVED: JSONLogger has been removed. While a helpful resource, we deemed the Accelerator can function optimally without it.

Users who want to use or are already using JSONLogger can easily do so by replacing the standard Logger with JSONLogger and configuring it as desired.
