VK created the topic: TAFJ and I-descriptors

Hi to all TAFJ users;
I'd like to know how you cope with inability of TAFJ to handle I-descriptors based on subroutines, like (see attached 2 examples from T24 R13 TAFC core):





How these 2 are now looking at TAFJ? How many your own I-descriptors you had to abandon? What were the workarounds, if any?

For local ones we just get an override, but in the future we might need to go to TAFJ (TAFC is rather aggressively phased out)...



Looks like TAFJ is Temenos's Windows 10 :(((

Thanks
VK

Cheers

It's even worse: from R15 onwards using SUBR in TAFC is restricted to ENQ.TRANS, all other routines are no longer allowed.
Looks like renaming your local routines to e.g. ENQ.TRANS.FULL.DATE.TIME is a working trick but not the final solution!

Thanks JPB, I knew if someone would answer then it will be you... :))

So so-called J-descriptors still work..
Interesting how they made the internal TAFJ-compatible replacement to call ENQ.TRANS... It was told from the very beginning that the code can't be written anywhere in the data in TAFJ (that was the explanation for cutting off this I-DESC-related functionality).

Do other things work? Like:
DEBIT.AMOUNT;CREDIT.AMOUNT;IF @1 EQ '' THEN @2 ELSE @1

Also, does EVAL still work in jQL?

Thanks again.

I'm not sure ENQ.TRANS will work with TAFJ (I suppose they won't) - I have no access to a TAFJ installation at present.
Looks like J-desc will continue to work, not sure about EVAL.

Hi JPB,

from R15 onwards using SUBR in TAFC is restricted to ENQ.TRANS


How is this check done? On commit stage of SS record or deeper?

Also, if you have R15 TAFC, could you post here what is there in SS for ACCOUNT and CUSTOMER that corresponds to my screenshots in the initial message? TIA.

Will be grateful for any info... At least if my guess it correct (no low-level check, just VERSION hook), I know how to make a workaround...

Hi JPB, you are a great influencer. Please, I suggest to create a new section in this t24all site, just for TAFJ questions or discussions. Thanks.
