Java Engine Release Notes for Version 16 (Released 10/6/2017)


  • Added the ability to further filter and sort Data Sets within a tag query. This is a new version of the Data Sets feature and replaces the old Data Sets feature. Old Data Sets will not work with this version of Windward. This is supported for SQL, XPath 2.0, JSON and OData based Data Sources.
  • Changed ChartTag Editor for SQL, XPath 2.0 and JSON based Data Sources. The editor now requires Data Sets and limits queries to a single Data Set. This simplifies creating ChartTags by moving the query work into the Data Set. Then the person creating the ChartTag can simply drag-drop the desired fields in the editor. This behavior can be reverted by setting the registry key HKEYCURRENTUSER/Software/Windward Studios/Auto Tag/chart-editor to “classic”.
