    September 2021

    Added

    • [cds-dk@4.5.1] cds import introduced option --as which converts EDMX file to different file formats such as CDS, CSN, and JSON.
    • [cds-dk@4.5.1] cds import introduced flag --f, which forcefully overwrite the content of existing cds file when specified with --as option.
    • [cds-dk@4.5.0] cds import supports import of functions, action, functionimport, and actionimport from both OData v2 and v4 edmx files.
    • [vscode-cds@4.3.0] doc comments are automatically aligned
    • [vscode-cds@4.3.0] new command: Restart CDS Language Support
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] to.hdi.migration: Support changes to HANA comments.
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] Support managed associations without foreign keys. Associations targeting a definition without primary keys or with an explicit empty foreign key tuple or with empty structured elements as foreign keys and their corresponding $self comparisons do not describe the relationship between the source and the target entity. These associations can be used to establish API navigations but cannot be used to access elements in the target entity as they cannot be transformed into a valid JOIN expression. Consequently, these associations are not added to the WITH ASSOCIATIONS clause or forwarded to SAP HANA CDS.
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] to.sql/hdi/hdbcds/edm(x)/for.odata: Structure/managed association comparisons (tuple comparisons) are now also expanded in infix filters, all expressions, and all on-conditions.
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] to.hdbcds: Better locations for messages - mostly concerning keywords and duplicates
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The CSV import is now more robust, for example simply ignoring files with empty content.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The Correlation ID is now stored in the Request Context and propagated in outgoing HTTP requests using header X-CorrelationID. On incoming requests the correlation ID is obtained from the SLF4j MDC (ensuring compatibility with cf-java-logging-support) or from headers X-CorrelationID or X-Correlation-Id. If no correlation ID is present when a new Request Context is opened an ID will be generated automatically and also placed in the SLF4j MDC.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The tenant ID is obtained from the UserInfo and placed in the SLF4j MDC on incoming requests (ensuring compatibility with cf-java-logging-support).
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The destination name of a Remote Service now defaults to the name of the Remote Service.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The initial version of the logical messaging layer has been added, enabling applications to receive events on Remote Services and emit events from their Application Services from/to an external message broker.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] Improved resilience of JMS connections, by additional reconnect attempts if the built-in JMS reconnect eventually fails. The default amount of JMS reconnect attempts was lowered from 17280 to 10 as part of this change. To increase the reconnect attempts again set cds.messaging.services.<key>.connection.properties.MaxReconnectAttempts
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The AMQP Idle-Timeout is now configurable for Enterprise Messaging services, by setting cds.messaging.services.<key>.connection.properties.AmqpIdleTimeout. The default has changed from 60000 to -1 (infinite), which is in line with the new default of the updated Enterprise Messaging library.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] SAP Event Mesh service bindings can now be detected in the environment based on the enterprise-messaging tag.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] Support $user values as function parameters in where-conditions of @restrictions. Make sure that the $user attribute has a single value only ($user.<attribute> could be empty or a list of values, in general). Otherwise, the authorization check fails with error code 403.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The Message and ServiceException API has been extended by the following:
      • Message#target(String, Function)
      • Message#target(String, Class, Function)]
      • ServiceException#messageTarget(String, Function)
      • ServiceException#messageTarget(String, Class, Function) These newly added methods allow the generation of message targets with a target parameter. The target parameter defines to which event context parameter the message refers to. Based on this information the OData v4 adapter can automatically add the binding parameter in case of actions or functions to the target, if required.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] Testability improvements for the MessageTarget by having added MessageTarget#getRef() to the interface. The new method getRef() returns a CqnReference, which provides toJson() to return it as a Json string. You can now, for example, use target1.getRef().toJson() and target2.getRef().toJson() of MessageTarget target1 and target2, and compare the respective string values.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The cds-maven-plugin provides the new goal version, which prints detailed version information about a CAP Java project on the console.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] Added support for exists predicate in where-conditions of instance-based authorizations. The new predicate exists conveniently allows to define authorization rules that are derived from associated entities (1:n). For instance, the where-clause exists members[userId = $user and role = ''Editor'']' filters all instances, which have an associated entity in members with matching userId and role.
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support batch selects (beta)
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support deep bulk updates
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support deep searched updates
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support bulk updates with heterogeneous entries
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support updates on structured elements
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Optimize execution of to-one expand all expands
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Optimize execution of nested to-one expands
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Make max batch size configurable via cds.sql.max-batch-size
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support any/allMatch(<predicate>) to apply filters on associated collections in update and delete statements
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Add processing modes for the CdsDataProcessor validator
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Use 100 ns precision for timestamps on HANA and MySQL
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support Java String datatype for @Core.isURL
    • [cds@5.5.1] Support for casting SQL function input
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support for minified models
    • [cds@5.5.0] Messaging: Webhooks use ‘application/json’ as the default content type
    • [cds@5.5.0] Messaging: If senders don’t use data as a property of the payload, then the whole payload is interpreted as data
    • [cds@5.5.0] Messaging: Support for $namespace placeholder in queue name
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support for deletable singletons with @odata.singleton.nullable
    • [cds@5.5.0] Remote requests set the accept-language header according to the original request or the user’s locale
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support for choosing data source names different from names of respective service definitions. Example:
          {"cds":{"requires":{
            "S4": {
              "model": "...", "service": "API_BUSINESS_PARTNER"
            }
          }}}
      
    • [cds@5.5.0] When calling cds.tx() to create new transactions, this now automatically inherits the current event context from cds.context. In case that creates issues set cds.env.features.cds_tx_inheritance = false to restore the former behaviour. You can still overwrite individual context settings, for example:
        const tx = cds.tx() // inherits tenant and user
        const tx = cds.tx({ // inherits tenant 
          user: new cds.User.Privileged 
        })
      
    • [cds@5.5.0] Method cds.tx() now allows to pass a function, which will be executed within a new managed transaction, with tx.commit/rollback() handled automatically. For example:
        await cds.tx (tx => {
          await tx.insert (...)
          await tx.read (...)
        })
      

      is equivalent to:

        const tx = cds.tx ()
        try {
          await tx.insert (...)
          await tx.read (...)
          await tx.commit()
        } catch {
          await tx.rollback()
        }
      
    • [cds@5.5.0] Method cds.tx({user}) now allows specifying a user as a plain string, for example:
        cds.tx ({ user:'me' })
      

      is equivalent to:

        cds.tx ({ user: new cds.User('me') })
      
    • [cds@5.5.0] Newly introduced method cds.spawn() allows correctly and conveniently spawning background jobs from within event handlers. Thereby ensuring a detached fully managed ACID transaction set as cds.context for each execution of the background job, inheriting the current event context from the outer cds.context by default. Usage options:
        cds.spawn (async ()=>{
          await INSERT.into ('Ticker') ...
        }) 
      
        cds.spawn (async ()=>{
          await INSERT.into ('Ticker') ...
        },{ after: 111 /* ms */ }) 
      
        let n=0, handle = cds.spawn (async ()=>{
          await INSERT.into ('Ticker') ...
          if (++n>9) clearTimeout (handle)
        },{ every: 111 /* ms */ }) 
      
        cds.spawn (async ()=>{
          await INSERT.into ('Ticker') ...
        },{ // inherits tenant 
          every: 111 /* ms */,
          user: new cds.User.Privileged 
        }) 
      
    • [cds@5.5.0] Default server is CORS-enabled for all origins if not in production
    • [cds@5.5.0] Default lock acquire timeout for SELECT FOR UPDATE via cds.env.sql.lock_acquire_timeout
    • [cds@5.5.0] Optimized search: Support groupby for localized data (when the environment variable cds.env.features.optimized_search is set to true on SAP HANA)
    • [cds@5.5.0] Out-of-the-box audit logging for deep structures without own association to data subject limited to one data subject per role per composition tree
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support for reading streams via GET /<Entity>(<ID>)/$value
    • [cds@5.5.0] Draft choreography: support of navigation with SiblingEntity
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support for where exists with infix filters in @restrict
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support annotation @Capabilities.ExpandRestrictions.NonExpandableProperties
    • [cds@5.5.0] @Core.ContentID added to OData error responses if content-id header is specified
    • [cds@5.5.0] New OData URL to CQN parser (cds.env.features.odata_new_parser):
      • support of navigation to primitive properties using $value
      • support of not operator with string functions (contains, startswith, endswith)
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support for default values for virtual fields
    • [cds@5.5.0] Payload for non-writable navigation targets removed from req.data
    • [cds@5.5.0] cds build supports i18n message bundles for Java and Nodejs apps and a default CSN format option for Java
    • [cds@5.5.0] View resolving considers renaming of foreign keys and excluding names when columns are explicitly provided in CQN
    • [cds@5.5.0] Resilient acquire for SAP HANA via cds.env.requires.db.connection_attempts = <number> (alpha; hard max of 3 enforced)
    • [cds@5.4.6] Support for nested where exists in @restrict (CRUD-only; beta)
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] Tenant upgrade is now internally called via CDS service TenantPersistenceService that applications can add handlers for:
      @protocol:'rest'
      service TenantPersistenceService {
          type JSON {
              // any json
          }
          ...
          action upgradeTenant(tenantId: UUID, instanceData: JSON, deploymentOptions: JSON) returns JSON;
      }
      

      Please note that this API is not meant to be called by applications but has been introduced to allow applications to create handlers for custom logic to be executed with the tenant upgrade.

    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] (beta) It is now possible to get the EDMX for services with a different OData version than the version configured for the build. API mtx.getEdmx(tenantId, service, language, odataVersion) and the endpoint /mtx/v1/metadata/edmx/<tenant-id>?name=<service>&language=<lang>&odataVersion=<version> now supports a parameter odataVersion. Please note that the output is compiled on-the-fly if odataVersion is specified which has potential impact on the performance. You will also have to run a tenant upgrade for existing tenants (/mtx/v1/model/upgrade) to get a correct result.
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] Extensions can now be reset via API /mtx/v1/model/reset and /mtx/v1/model/asyncReset.
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] The job removal timeout is now configurable using cds.mtx.jobs.removalTimeout.
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] mtx.jobs.maxParallelExecutions can now be used to parallelize asynchronous jobs. The default is 2.

    Changed

    • [cds-dk@4.5.2] cds init uses latest Maven Java archetype version 1.19.0 for creating Java projects.
    • [cds-dk@4.5.1] Marked cds lint as beta again to further investigate issues from ‘extends’ via prettier plugin.
    • [cds-dk@4.5.0] cds init uses latest Maven Java archetype version 1.18.1 for creating Java projects.

    • [vscode-cds@4.3.0] last workspace/symbols are cached now to speed up CAP explorer
    • [vscode-cds@4.3.0] user setting cds.workspace.scanCsn has now three modes: Off, ByFileExtension (new default) and InspectJson
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] Updated OData vocabularies ‘Common’, ‘Core’
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] to.sql/hdi/hdbcds: Invalid (i.e. not expandable) usage of structures is now checked - an error is raised
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] The technical messaging layer no longer replaces . with / in topic names that match the qualified name of an event definition in the CDS model.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] Methods for message target generation in the Message and ServiceException API that accept a target prefix have been deprecated. Instead, methods are provided that enable to specify a target parameter of the event context that the message refers to.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] In both Message and ServiceException the API to pass a prefix and an entity name has been deprecated:
      • Message#target(String, String, Function)
      • ServiceException#messageTarget(String, String, Function) Instead, paths can now also be built with arbitrary parameters (for example, entity-typed action input parameters) using:
      • Message#target(Function)
      • ServiceException#messageTarget(Function) Specifying a prefix is no longer necessary as it is added automatically if required.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] TenantProviderService#readTenants() resp. TenantProviderService#readTenantsInfo() return a List with a single null entry resp. a TenantInfo with null indicating the default provider tenant in case of a single tenant(ST) application. In previous versions the returned lists was empty. There is no change for multitenant(MT) applications.
    • [cds.java@1.19.0] When switching to privileged user with RequestContextRunner#privilegedUser(), not only the tenant, but also additional user attributes from the current user are propagated which contain more detailed tenant information.
    • [cds@5.5.1] Support for casting SQL function input
    • [cds@5.5.0] Messaging: Webhooks will always generate tokens
    • [cds@5.5.0] Messaging: In multitenancy mode, messaging artifacts are only deployed to subscribers (unless the service option deployForProvider is set to true)
    • [cds@5.5.0] Messaging: Incoming messages without corresponding handlers are not acknowledged
    • [cds@5.5.0] If a service executes a query targeting a projection on one of its entities, the query is resolved along with projections to an entity known by the executing service. The result is post-processed to reflect the expected result of the incoming query. The reason is that no handlers of the executing service were executed as they did not know the query target.
      • Deactivate during two month grace period via compact feature flag cds.env.features.resolve_views = false
    • [cds@5.5.0] Use @sap/cds-compiler’s smartId function to determine whether a reference needs to be quoted.
      • Allows the use of non-word characters in column names, for example entity Foo { ![bar/bz]: String; }.
      • Support for columns with spaces with feature flag cds.env.features.spaced_columns.
      • Note: Restrictions in other layers (example: OData’s simple identifier schema) still apply.
      • Note: Expressions in references (example: ref: ['foo as bar']) currently works but was never intended to and will be removed in future versions.
    • [cds@5.5.0] Clear draft data based on their draft UUID instead of via deep delete
    • [cds@5.5.0] Support @sap/cds-compiler’s changes for DB constraints: managed and unmanaged compositions of one behave like associations. This means that only $self-managed composition of one gets DELETE CASCADE constraint. Since all other “2one” cases require extra DELETE handled by the runtime, that constraint is ignored.
    • [cds@5.5.0] Value with regards to date and time functions are not converted to strings in the OData protocol adapter
    • [cds@5.5.0] No placeholders for LIMIT to enable statement caching during pagination
    • [cds@5.5.0] Arrayed elements stringified in DB layer

      • CQN for $select and $expand columns
    • [cds@5.4.6] Support for nested where exists in @restrict (CRUD-only; beta)
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] Tenant updates are now parallelized. You can set the pool size using mtx.jobs.parallelUpgradeLimit. The default is 4.
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] mtx.jobs.intervalTimeout is now deprecated, as the job queue does not require polling any more.
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] The default queue size for asynchronous jobs has been increased to 1000.
    • [cds-mtx@2.3.0] In case of errors, the full hdi-deploy logs are now also printed for the default logging level.
    • [cds-sidecar-client@1.2.0] This package is no longer maintained. Use @sap/cds-dk instead.

    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] Fix dump, which occurred when trying to report that the user has defined an element to be both key and localized if localized was inherited via the provided type, or in the generated entity for a managed composition of aspect.
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] Properly auto-expose targets of associations in parameters and many.
    • [cds-compiler@2.7.0] for.Odata:
      • Fix handling of annotation @cds.odata.valuelist in conjunction with associations in structures using flat-mode and sqlMapping set to plain.

    August 2021

    Added

    • [cds.java@1.18.0] If the new property cds.errors.combined is set to true (default setting) CAP’s default validations are gathered using the Messages API. This allows multiple validation errors to be returned at once to the client. At the end of the Before handler phase Messages.throwIfError() is automatically called to abort the event processing in case of errors. Applications are encouraged to replace places where they use ServiceException for validations with calls to the Messages API to contribute to the set of validation errors and remove explicit calls of Messages.throwIfError() and rather rely on the framework for this.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Multitenant Enterprise Messaging Services now support receiving events through webhooks. They integrate with the tenant onboarding process to create webhooks, queues and subscriptions for each tenant in the enterprise-messaging service instance.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Added initial version of the AuditLogService with a default handler using a logger as target.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Added new feature cds-feature-auditlog-v2 providing a handler to send auditlog messages to AuditLog Service V2.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Added Spring Boot logger groups to group multiple CAP loggers under a well-defined stable name.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Added the possibility to explicitly load a default-env.json file from classpath resources, by prefixing the path passed to the property cds.environment.local.defaultEnvPath with classpath:
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] prefixing the path passed to the property cds.environment.local.defaultEnvPath with classpath:
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support resolving views with literals in the projections
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support session context variables ($user.id, $user.locale, $at, $now) in on-conditions of associations
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Support simple insert and select on structured elements
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Anonymize literals when logging CQN select statements (configurable via cds.ql.logging.log-values)
    • [cds4j@1.23.0] Static evaluation and optimization of predicate expressions
    • [cds4j@1.22.0] Support resolving views with literals in the projections
    • [cds4j@1.22.0] Support session context variables ($user.id, $user.locale, $at, $now) in on-conditions of associations
    • [cds4j@1.22.0] Support simple insert and select on structured elements
    • [cds4j@1.22.0] Anonymize literals when logging CQN select statements (configurable via cds.ql.logging.log-values)
    • [cds4j@1.22.0] Static evaluation and optimization of predicate expressions
    • [cds-compiler@2.5.0] Allow to extend existing array annotation values via the ellipsis operator .... An ellipsis may appear exactly once at an arbitrary position in the top level array of an annotate directive. Only array values can be merged into arrays and unapplied ellipses are removed from the final array value. Annotation layering rules remain unaffected.
    • [cds-compiler@2.5.0] to.sql/hdi/hdbcds:
      • Doc comments are translated into HANA comments (or into @Comment annotation for to.hdbcds). Such comments are possible on entities, views, elements of entities and to.hdbcds also supports comments on view columns. Generation can be disabled via option disableHanaComments. Entites/views (and their elements/columns) annotated with @cds.persistence.journal for to.hdi/to.sql will not have comments rendered.
      • Generation of temporal WHERE clause can be suppressed by annotating the validFrom/validTo elements of the projection with false or null.
    • [cds-compiler@2.5.0] to.sql/hdi/hdbcds/edm(x)/for.odata: Structure/managed association comparisons (tuple comparisons) are now also expanded in WHERE and HAVING - this was previously only supported in on-conditions.
    • [cds-compiler@2.5.0] cdsc now internally uses SNAPI.
    • [cds-compiler@2.5.0] to.hdi.migration:
      • Validate that the two supplied CSNs are compatible.
      • Improve delta-mechanism to not render superflous [ALTER|DROP|ADD] statements for unchanged SQL.
    • [cds@5.4.0] Messaging: Support for format cloudevents
    • [cds@5.4.0] Messaging: Support for @topic
    • [cds@5.4.0] Messaging: Support for subscribePrefix and publishPrefix
    • [cds@5.4.0] Support for ReadByKeyRestrictions annotations
    • [cds@5.4.0] Support for OData omit-values preference in Prefer HTTP header
    • [cds@5.4.0] Object variant of service methods
    • [cds@5.4.0] Brazilian portuguese (pt_BR) is now in the list of normalized locales
    • [cds@5.4.0] Support for actions and functions on Remote Service
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.2] There are new APIs for diagnosing memory, asynchronous jobs, and HDI containers. They can be called via
      • /mtx/v1/diagnose/memory
      • /mtx/v1/diagnose/jobs
      • /mtx/v1/diagnose/container/<tenantId> Note that with this change, the /mtx/v1/model/diagnose API is not available any more. The new API will work out-of-the-box with @sap/cds >= 5.5.0, but you have to opt-in with earlier versions by setting:
        "mtx": {
        "api": {
          "diagnose": true
        }
        }
        

        in your package.json.

    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] working_set and exclude_filter can now be used as HDI_DEPLOY_OPTIONS
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] Job log is now cleaned up with each startup to avoid garbage after application shutdowns or crashes. Maximum age of entries can be configured via cds configuration mtx.jobs.cleanup.regular and mtx.jobs.cleanup.stale (in milliseconds). “Regular” refers to finished or failed jobs (default is 30 min), “Stale” refers to queued or running jobs (default is 7 days).
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] (beta) The tenant specific URL returned to the saas-registry can now be specified via two environment variables SUBSCRIPTION_URL and SUBSCRIPTION_URL_REPLACEMENT_RULES.
      The following example uses the MTX application URL and turns it into the UI application URL by replacing the application name suffix:

      SUBSCRIPTION_URL: ${protocol}://\${tenant_subdomain}-${default-uri}
      SUBSCRIPTION_URL_REPLACEMENT_RULES: [['srv', 'app']]
      

      \${tenant_subomain} will be replaced by the domain of the subscribed tenant.

    Changed

    • [cds-dk@4.4.0] cds init uses latest Maven Java archetype version 1.17.0 for creating Java projects.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] The cds-maven-plugin now installs @sap/cds-dk in version ^4 by default.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] The archetype now generates a project that uses H2 instead of SQLite as in-memory database.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Remote Services and Application Services now both try to project queries targeting entities defined outside of their service’s namespace onto entities inside of their service’s namespace, before dispatching the event to event handlers.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Environment information such as service bindings, application information or properties are no longer statically available through Properties or PlatformEnvironment classes, but can now be accessed through the CdsRuntime via CdsRuntime.getEnvironment(). This enables to create multiple CDS runtimes with different service bindings or properties in a single process. This is especially useful for Spring Boot tests in which multiple different ApplicationContext instances are launched, which is now finally supported with CAP Java.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] Service bindings or application information can now be contributed by ServiceBindingProvider or ApplicationInfoProvider implementations, which are registered on the CdsRuntime through the CdsRuntimeConfigurer. They can be registered on the CdsRuntimeConfigurer using an implementation of CdsRuntimeConfiguration during the environment phase. With this change the internal PlatformEnvironment approach has been removed.
    • [cds.java@1.18.0] The events on the MtSubscriptionService, which are triggered by a callback from the mtx-sidecar (e.g. EVENT_ASYNC_SUBSCRIBE_FINISHED), are now asynchronous to the sidecar’s request. This allows long-running tasks to be implemented during the processing of these events and before the SaaS Registry is updated with the new subscription state.
    • [cds-compiler@2.5.0] - If the first source provided to the compile command has a $sources property (whether enumerable or not) which is an array of strings, use that instead of calculating one.
    • [cds-compiler@2.5.0] Updated OData vocabularies ‘Aggregation’, ‘Analytics’, ‘Authorization’, ‘Capabilities’, ‘CodeList’, ‘Common’, ‘Communication’, ‘Core’, ‘Graph’, ‘HTML5’, ‘Measures’, ‘ODM’, ‘PersonalData’, ‘Repeatability’, ‘Session’, ‘UI’, ‘Validation’
    • [cds@5.4.0] In multitenant enterprise-messaging: If a tenant subscribes, the messaging artifact generation is awaited. In your provisioning service configuration, make sure to set onSubscriptionAsync to true and callbackTimeoutMillis to more than 10 minutes.
    • [cds@5.4.0] In enterprise-messaging: Messages are sent via HTTP

    • [cds-mtx@2.2.2] Fixed an application crash at startup when MTX_DISABLE_META_TENANT_CREATION is set and no Instance/Service Manager credentials are available.
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] Native HANA table data properties files are now supported.
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] MT_LIB_TENANT-*-prefixed tenants are now ignored when requesting mtx/v1/provisioning/tenant. This fixes a compatibility problem when using the CDS_MULTITENANCY_DATASOURCE_HANADATABASEIDS environment variable.
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] To reduce the number of logs, the HDI deployment output is now only logged in debug mode.
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] Tenant metadata request via mtx/v1/provisioning/tenant/ are now cached.
    • [cds-mtx@2.2.1] /mtx/v1/metadata/edmx/ will now throw ServiceMissingError if no name query parameter is passed, instead of defaulting to CatalogService.

      July 2021

    Added

    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds import now supports OData V4 edmx files.
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds-ts executable starts cds CLI with ts-node to allow JIT compilation of Typescript
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds CLI will give you a best guess if a command cannot be found, e.g. in case of a typing mistake.
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds.import as API alternative to cds import command to convert edmx files to csn [beta]
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds.compile.to.openapi as API alternative to cds compile --to openapi to convert CDS models to OpenAPI definitions
    • [cds-dk@4.2.0] cds add data creates csv files with basic header lines for the entities in the project. --for option allows for selecting individual entities or namespaces.
    • [vscode-cds@4.2.0] validation mode ActiveEditorOnly (new default). The new mode reduces number of compilations during editing and thus improves responsiveness.
    • [vscode-cds@4.2.0] new command Visualize CDS file dependencies to analyze using dependencies of CDS model files. Getting an overview of file dependencies can help to keep your project architecture clean. Requires the 3rd party extension Graphviz (dot) language support for Visual Studio Code (joaompinto), which can be installed with a single click.
    • [vscode-cds@4.1.1] This is a quality release focusing on performance for large models. There are new user settings and some have changed their defaults. Best performance is achieved with default settings, except cds.contributions.enablement.odata which should be switched off to speed up compilation, unless feature is needed.

      Additional hints to increase performance:

      • Within SAP Business Application Studio: close CAP Data Models and Services view. Otherwise it will ask for all workspace symbols at every change.
      • Settings: Cds › Contributions › Enablement: Odata: switch off as already mentioned above
      • Settings: Editor › Goto Location: Alternative Definition Command: do not select goToReferences. Otherwise being already on a definition will trigger find references which requires all dirty models to be recompiled.
      • Settings: Workbench › Editor › Limit: Enabled: switch on
      • Settings: Workbench › Editor › Limit: Value: lower the number. If open editors have using dependencies, a change in one editor will lead to a recompile of related editors.
      • Commands Go to References / Find All References will recompile all models that might have changed due to a change in a depending model. If there are index models it often means the complete workspace is being recompiled. Until a further change, reference calculation is reasonably fast.
      • Command Go to Symbol in Workspace will recompile the complete workspace once, then it is reasonable fast.
      • Changing settings in CDS section will currently perform a complete workspace invalidation, i.e. required indexes will lead to recompilations on-demand as described above.
      • Changing certain cds.env settings, for example, folder configurations will invalidate the workspace as well.

    • [cds@5.3.2] Aligned Node.js and Java auditlog APIs
    • [cds@5.3.2] enterprise-messaging: No topic manipulation for outbound events beginning with a different namespace
    • [cds@5.3.1] Task @sap/cds-runtime/lib/messaging/deploy.js moved to @sap/cds/tasks/enterprise-messaging-deploy.js after module merge
    • [cds@5.3.1] Parse OData lambda expression on collection of scalars with equals operator (i.e., .../any(d:d = "<val>")) to CQN with contains (pegjs-based parser only)
    • [cds@5.3.0] Custom build tasks are no longer restricted to @SAP namespace.

    • [cds@5.3.0] Both strings and numbers are accepted as decimals
      • Strict numbers handling can be re-enabled via cds.env.features.strict_numbers
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Solely virtual elements are not considered readonly anymore. By default the CDS Compiler adds @Core.Computed: true to virtual elements, which makes them readonly by default. By adding explicitly to the virtual element, you can now create a virtual element that is not readonly.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Interfaces for features contributing SQL DataSources have been refined and moved to public API. It is now possible to either implement a DataSourceDescriptorFactory, which can provide standard JDBC connection information, or for more flexibility a DataSourceFactory, which can directly create DataSource instances.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Interface implementations loaded via Java’s ServiceLoader (e.g. ServletAdapterFactory or DataSourceFactory) can now get access to the CdsRuntime directly after construction by implementing the CdsRuntimeAware interface. The CdsRuntime is no longer explicitly passed in methods of these interfaces.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Centralized factories required to separate API from implementation into a CoreFactory interface. Application code should use existing static create methods on the respective interfaces (e.g. UserInfo, EventContext, etc.) instead of directly using the CoreFactory instance.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Using autowired Messages in a Spring bean outside of a RequestContext now results in an error. Earlier Messages written like this were unnoticeably lost immediately.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Queries that don’t use a limit (top/skip) are not implicitly sorted anymore to improve performance of these queries. By default OData V2 or V4 requests always either define an explicit limit by the client or an implicit limit through server-driven paging.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] The enterprise-messaging feature can now auto-detect multitenancy-capable service bindings through the instancetype reuse. The previously used kind enterprise-messaging-mt has been removed.
    • [cds4j@1.20.0] Improve performance of to-many expands
    • [cds4j@1.20.0] Improve performance of upserts in deep updates
    • [cds-mtx@2.1.2] File system APIs are now asynchronous
    • [cds-mtx@2.1.2] A failed offboarding will now throw a TenantOffboardingError, instead of just logging the error.

    • [cds-sidecar-client@1.1.21] Replace vulnerable ‘Got’ dependency with ‘Axios’.
    • [cds-sidecar-client@1.1.21] To facilitate debugging, display a few start and end characters of certain secrets in DEBUG output (applies to params that are not user-generated, i.e. short-lived and/or comprising many characters).
    • [cds-sidecar-client@1.1.21] On SAP Business Application Studio, disable keyring storage as it is unsupported (switch to plain-text automatically)
    • [cds-sidecar-client@1.1.21] Hide secret data in token-request URL from log output
    • [sap/ux-cds-odata-language-server-extension@1.2.3] updated comprised OData vocabularies to include HTML5 vocabulary server

    Fixed

    • [cds-dk@4.3.3] Removed internal links in npm-shrinkwrap.json
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds import fix for tag in OData V2 and tag in OData v4
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds import now sets the kind attribute in package.json to the correct odata-v2 value for OData v2 services.
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds import now maps edm.DateTime to cds.DateTime for OData V2.
    • [cds-dk@4.3.0] cds compile --to edmx-v2/edmx-v4 now uses correct file naming when compiling a single CDS service.
    • [cds-dk@4.2.1] cds deploy w/o any file arguments now works again and no longer fails with No cds models found at/in ''.
    • [cds-dk@4.2.0] cds deploy called with multiple sources ignored all but the first one
    • [cds-dk@4.2.0] cdd add mta now sets a buildpack for the server modules (Node.js or Java). This improves deploy performance and avoids issues with buildpack priorities, leading to potentially wrong build packs selected.
    • [cds-dk@4.2.0] On drag and drop of an edmx file, cds watch now imports it in the proper working dir
    • [cds-dk@4.2.0] cds import now moves the edmx file again to srv/external instead of copying it.
    • [vscode-cds@4.2.0] validation mode ActiveEditorOnly (new default). The new mode reduces number of compilations during editing and thus improves responsiveness.
    • [vscode-cds@4.2.0] new command Visualize CDS file dependencies to analyze using dependencies of CDS model files. Getting an overview of file dependencies can help to keep your project architecture clean. Requires the 3rd party extension Graphviz (dot) language support for Visual Studio Code (joaompinto), which can be installed with a single click.
    • [vscode-cds@4.0.4] asynchronous scanning of workspace blocked and led to high cpu usage (mostly on Linux/macOS)
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] Do not remove parentheses around single literals and references on the right-hand side of an in and not in operator.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] cdsc: Option --direct-backend can now be combined with toCsn’s option --with-localized
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] The option testSortCsn was erroneously ignored in some compiler backends.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] for.odata: Propagate the virtual attribute correctly while flattening structures.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] If internal relational types are used directly in CDL (e.g. cds.Association), an error is emitted. In CSN, all artifacts of relational types need a target (/targetAspect) as well.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] In Association to Join translation don’t produce a JOIN node for exposed (transitive) associations in combination with their exposed foreign keys. Also resolve foreign keys correctly against the target entity allowing to expose renamed foreign keys when aliased.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] The option testSortCsn (--test-sort-csn in cdsc) can be used to sort CSN definitions alphabetically. This option is only intended for tests. This will restore the pre-v2.3.0 ordering in EDMX.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] to.sql:
      • for SQL-dialect sqlite, render the string-format-time function (strftime())
        • $at.from with date-format: '%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.000Z'
        • $at.to with date-format: '%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.001Z' (+1ms compared to $at.from)
      • for SQL-dialect hana wrap SESSION_CONTEXT('VALID-TO') and SESSION_CONTEXT('VALID-FROM') in TO_TIMESTAMP(..) function
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] to.hdbcds:
      • Wrap SESSION_CONTEXT('VALID-TO') and SESSION_CONTEXT('VALID-FROM') in TO_TIMESTAMP(..) function
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] Correct auto-exposure in model with unscoped projection on deep scoped entity (from managed aspect compositions: component in component, like they are common in ODM).
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] Internal types cds.Association and cds.Composition are no longer proposed for code-completion.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] Fix various issues with Association to Join translation:
      • Substitute $self.alias expressions and respect prefix paths in foreign key accesses.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] to.hdbcds: In naming mode “hdbcds”, correctly resolve $self backlinks with aliased foreign keys.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] to.cdl:
      • Correctly traverse subelements when rendering annotations for them.
      • Quote element names (if required) in annotate with statements.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] for.odata: Fix regression with detecting collision when generating foreign keys.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] to.edmx: Correctly render final base types in EDMX V2 when called with transformed OData CSN for V4.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] Fix regression: also for associations defined in a service, try to implicitly redirect the provided model target.
    • [cds-compiler@2.4.4] to.edmx(x):
      • The reverted change “array of elements are now allowed for OData V2, too.” introduced with v2.2.0 has caused regressions in various scenarios that used OData V4 processed CSN for OData V2 EDMX rendering. Therefore the error has been lowered to a ‘odata-spec-violation-array-of’ warning.
      • The fix ‘Render constraints only if all principal keys are used in association’ introduced with v2.2.2 has caused regressions in mocking scenarios. With option --odata-v2-partial-constr partial constraint generation can be reactivated. A ‘odata-spec-violation-constraints’ warning is raised.
    • [cds-compiler@1.50.8] to.hdi.migration: Don’t generate ALTER for type change from association to composition or vice versa (if the rest stays the same), as the resulting SQL is identical.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Fixed a bug causing incorrect deserialization of request payloads with content-type application/json and text/plain for file upload requests on media type properties in OData V4.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Fixed a bug causing the OData V2 artificial ID field ID__ of aggregated entities to appear in CQN statements in case it was explicitly selected in $select.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Fixed a bug causing multi-segment service paths to be handled incorrectly in OData V2.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Expanded elements in remote OData V2 queries are now explicitly listed in $select in addition, if $select is used to reduce the selection set. This is due to the OData V2 behaviour that $select takes precedence over $expand.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Fixed a bug causing incorrect authorization configurations in case base paths of different protocol adapter overlapped.
    • [cds.java@1.17.0] Fixed a bug causing HTTP requests to SaaS Registry or Message Brokers to fail with premature close errors.

      }
      
    • [cds-mtx@2.0.1] It’s now possible to provide SAP BTP dependencies in the mtx settings in your .cdsrc.json instead of implementing a custom handler, by setting mtx.dependencies accordingly.
    • [cds-mtx@2.0.0] SaaS provisioning operations GET, PUT, and DELETE on API /mtx/v1/provisioning/tenant/ now require scope mtcallback. Upgrade calls on API /mtx/v1/model/upgrade/ and /mtx/v1/model/upgradeAsync/ now require scope mtdeployment. This is now aligned with the mandatory scope check required for the java runtime.
      To adapt the scope names to the java runtime scope configuration, the scope names can be changed using the following cds configuration:
      mtx: {
        security: {
            "subscription-scope": "myApp.subscription",

      }
      
    • [cds-mtx@2.0.0] Support automatic roll-back for corrupted tenants when MTX_ROLLBACK_CORRUPTED_CONTAINER is set to true. This should never be used in production, but only for integration tests.
    • [cds-mtx@1.2.1] - Size of job queue can now be configured via cds env:
      mtx: {
      jobqueue: {
        size: 10
      }
      

      or parameter CDS_MTX_JOBQUEUE_SIZE=10

    Changed

    • [cds-dk@4.1.0] If cds watch encounters a port that is already in use, it now just runs on an arbitrary port instead of a trying to search the next port available.

    • [cds@5.1.0] cds build is no longer validating Node.js custom service handlers that have been registered using service @impl annotation.
    • [cds@5.0.5] Internal errors are no longer decorated with Please report this. People interpreted the text as to only include the stack trace in error reports and to omit other valuable context information.
    • [cds.java@1.16.0] OData V4 PUT requests on properties of non-existing entities now properly return a 404 response, instead of upserting the entity.
    • [cds.java@1.16.0] Messages written during ETag validations on OData actions are now discarded.
    • [cds.java@1.16.0] All requests or changesets are now executed in an OData V2 $batch request, even if one of the requests or changesets fails. This is in accordance with the OData V2 specification and the expectation of SAPUI5.
    • [cds.java@1.16.0] The CloudFoundry platform feature is now enabled in case either VCAP_SERVICES or VCAP_APPLICATION is present. Earlier both environment variables had to be present.
    • [cds.java@1.16.0] The statically available LocalizedMessageProvider has been moved into the CdsRuntime. In Spring Boot this allows to configure custom LocalizedMessageProvider implementations as Spring beans.

    • [cds-mtx@2.0.0] @sap/hdi-deploy and @sap/instance-manager are now directly required by @sap/cds-mtx. Therefore, they can be left out of your package.json dependencies
    • [cds-mtx@2.0.0] Job IDs are now generated using the uuid package
    • [cds-mtx@2.0.0] The default behavior of the extension-allowlist has changed. If extension-allowlist is not configured, it is not allowed to apply any extension.
      Extensions can be easily enabled for all entities and services by adding the following to the configuration.
      mtx: {
      "extension-allowlist" = [
          {
              "for": ["*"]
          }
      ]
      

    Fixed

    • [cds-dk@4.1.5] An issue with opening URLs on Windows
    • [cds-dk@4.1.5] cds CLI no longer adds cds.compile.to.openapi generically into all commands. This turned out to load cds configuration from wrong folders, introducing subtle side effects. Now, only the cds compile command adds cds.compile.to.openapi. If you use cds.compile.to.openapi in other flows, like at runtime, use cds compile --to openapi instead.
    • [cds-dk@4.1.5] Include @sap/cds 5.1.5
    • [cds-dk@4.1.5] Include @sap/cds-runtime 3.1.1
    • [cds-dk@4.1.5] Include @sap/cds-compiler 2.2.8
    • [cds-dk@4.1.5] Include @sap/eslint-plugin-cds 1.1.4

    • [cds-dk@4.1.0] cds compile --to hdbtable, hdbcds no longer creates duplicate file extensions.
    • [cds-dk@4.0.7] Lookup for eslint during cds add lint
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.8] Fix regression: also for associations defined in a service, try to implicitly redirect the provided model target.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.6] to.edmx(x):
      • The reverted change “array of elements are now allowed for OData V2, too.” introduced with v2.2.0 has caused regressions in various scenarios that used OData V4 processed CSN for OData V2 EDMX rendering. Therefore, the error has been lowered to a ‘odata-spec-violation-array-of’ warning.
      • The fix ‘Render constraints only if all principal keys are used in association’ introduced with v2.2.2 has caused regressions in mocking scenarios. With option --odata-v2-partial-constr partial constraint generation can be reactivated. A ‘odata-spec-violation-constraints’ warning is raised.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.6] Usually reserved names like in in references used as annotation values can now really be provided without delimited identifiers (if the name is not true, false, or null).
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.6] Fixed the implicit redirection of associations to scoped targets (like texts entities).
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.6] Fix regression: Allow virtual structured elements.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.6] to.edm(x):
      • OData V2:
        • Remove warning about scalar return types.
        • Render constraints only if all principal keys are used in association.
      • OData V4: Don’t remove @Capabilities annotations from containee.
      • Allow @Core.MediaType on all types and raise a warning for those (scalar) types that can’t be mapped to Edm.String or Edm.Binary.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.4] to.cdl: Also handle subelement-annotations by rendering a annotate X with Y.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.4] to.hdi/sql/hdbcds: Fixed the database name (with naming mode quoted/hdbcds) and the to.hdi file name of scoped definitions (like texts entities) in services.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.4] Empty enums no longer result in a syntax error.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.4] Do not omit indirectly annotated or redirected sub elements during propagation of expanded sub elements.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.4] Also auto-expose composition targets of projected compositions, not just those targets, which were used at the original definition of the composition.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.4] Improve checks for keys, which are array of or of SAP HANA spatial type (ST_POINT & ST_GEOMETRY) with checking also inside of used user-defined structured type.
    • [cds-compiler@2.2.4] to.edm(x):
      • V2: OnDelete=Cascade was set on dependent instead on principal role.
      • V4: ReferentialConstraints Property and ReferencedProperty for managed composition to one were swapped.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.6] Do not unjustified complain about $self comparisons.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.6] Auto-exposed entities are represented as projections in the CSN.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.6] to.sql/to.hdi:
      • Revert change “Default values are no longer propagated from the principal to the generated foreign key element.” from version 2.1.0
      • Fix regression where localized convenience views for temporal entities used keys in the from clause that did not exist on the texts-entity

    March 2021

    Added

    • [cds-dk@4.0.0] cds watch is now a live reload server, allowing for automatic page refreshes in browsers whenever a file has changed.

    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] All primitive types except for binary are now allowed as enum value types.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] Allow users to define A.B even if there is a definition A, which is not a context or service.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] You can now provide almost all annotation assignments without delimited identifiers: the use of ., @, and # is fine for annotation names, property names of structures, and in references used as annotation values.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] for.odata:
      • All the artifacts that have localized fields get a $localized: true property.
      • Allow the user to define draft actions for annotation purposes
        • draftPrepare(SideEffectsQualifier: String) returns <ET>,
        • draftActivate() returns <ET>,

      • Warn about nonapplicable annotations.
      • Render property default values (only OData V4).
      • Option odataProxies exposes association targets outside of the current service. These EntityTypes do only expose their primary keys have no accompanying EntitySet. The added navigation targets are exposed under their namespace or if not available under namespace root. odataProxies is only available with --format=structured.
      • Option odataXServiceRefs renders an edm:Reference to the service for those navigation targets that are defined in another service. odataXServiceRefs is only available with --format=structured.
      • Duplicate EntityContainer entries with same name will raise an error.
      • array of elements are now allowed for OData V2, too.
        Addendum this change is reverted in cds-compiler@2.2.4, as it violates the OData v2 specification.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] to.sql/hdi/hdbcds: Explicitly render the implicit alias for functions without arguments, e.g. current_date.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] to.sql:

      • New API functions parse.cql (prefer it to deprecated parseToCqn) and parse.expr (prefer it to deprecated parseToExpr)
      • function getArtifactCdsPersistenceName now accepts a CSN as a third parameter (used to be a namespace). With a CSN provided, the name can be correctly constructed for naming modes quoted and hdbcds. Without a CSN, the name is possibly wrong if it contains dots. If the CSN is not provided or the third parameter is not a CSN, the old, deprecated, implementation is used.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] cdsc and other client tools:
      • Added --with-localized to the command toCsn, which adds convenience views for localized entities to the output.
      • A script bin/cds_update_identifiers.js was added. You can use it to update the delimited identifier style in your CDS sources.

    • [cds@5.0.1] Fluent API classes provided through cds.ql also support tagged template strings now in these methods: SELECT, SELECT.from, SELECT.where, UPDATE, UPDATE.with, UPDATE.where, INSERT.into, DELETE.from, DELETE.where Example:
      let Authors = SELECT `ID` .from `Authors` .where `name like ${'%Brontë%'}`
      let Books = SELECT `ID,title` .from `Books` .where `author_ID in ${Authors}`
      await
      
    • [cds@5.0.0] MTX APIs are now automatically served when cds.requires.multitenancy exists. This renders an application-level server start script for multitenancy unnecessary.
    • [cds@5.0.0] Auto-connect to a live reload server started by cds watch.

Especially, when using comprehensive reuse models, like One Domain Model, this significantly reduces both, memory consumption as well as excess tables and views in databases.
    • [cds.java@1.15.0] The method throwIfError() has been added to the Messages interface. You can use this method to throw a ServiceException based on the error messages collected in the Messages container. With this API, you can avoid duplicating errors or to define a general top-level error message.

      • Downgrade message to-many-no-on from error to warning.
      • Default values are no longer propagated from the principal to the generated foreign key element.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] to.sql:

    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] to.cdl:
      • Render maximum cardinality as ‘to one’ or ‘to many’.
      • Return at most two files. The first one (named model.cds) contains all definitions, rendered in order, without namespaces or using. Contexts and services are NOT nested. The second file (named <namespace>.cds) represents the CSN namespace property, simply defining such a namespace and requiring the first file.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] API changes:
      • The API functions compile() and compileSync() return a CSN and not an XSN, compactModel() returns the first argument.
      • If options does not provide a messages property, all messages are printed to standard error.
      • The options.messages is kept throughout the compiler and contains all messages from the compiler and all backends.
      • Messages are not sorted anymore; use the API function sortMessages to have it sorted.

    • [cds@5.0.0] Fiori preview now loads and shows data initially in its list page
    • [cds@5.0.0] i18n template strings now are replaced in EDMX documents such that they retain their surrounding string. For example, the "{i18n>key1} - {i18n>key2}" template results in "value1 - value2", while previously the first match replaced the entire string, leading to "value1". This is helpful for the Template strings of UI.ConnectedFields.
    • [cds@5.0.0] CDS drops compiler v2 support for classic CAP Java runtime projects. cds build returns an error if compiler version 2 is used. For further details regarding migration to CAP Java SDK runtime, see https://cap.cloud.sap/docs/java/migration.

    • [cds.java@1.15.0] Added the new interface CqnService, which will gradually replace CdsService. The benefits of the new interface will be that it avoids name clashes with CdsService from the Reflection API and captures the intent of the interface better. In a future release CdsService might be deprecated. To avoid warnings in your code, consider renaming usages of CdsService to CqnService.
    • [cds.java@1.15.0] When switching to the privileged user in a new Request Context using privilegedUser(), the current tenant context is automatically propagated to the privileged user.

    • [cds.java@1.15.0] The cds-services-archetype doesn’t set a Node.js version in pom.xml anymore, which means that the default version provided by the cds-maven-plugin is used. If required it is still possible to set the Node.js version property in a project.
    • [cds-runtime@3.0.2] Minimum required Node.js version is now 12. Support for Node.js v10 is dropped.
    • [cds-runtime@3.0.2] Draft handlers registered via cds.ApplicationService.registerFioriHandlers(), which gets called in cds.ApplicationService.init()

      • Structured elements in subqueries are now properly expanded.
      • Actions, functions, annotations, and events do not have database specific checks run on them, as they will not be part of the resulting artifacts anyways
      • With --names=quoted or hdbcds, some . in artifact names are turned into _. In general, this happens when part of the name prefix is “shadowed” by a non-context/service; any . after that point is turned into _. This change also affects the filenames and the @cds.persistence.name annotation in the CSN returned by to.hdi.migration and for.odata.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] to.sql/hdi:
      • Fixed a bug, which led to an exception if elements were referenced as types.

      • Nullability constraints on view parameters are not rendered anymore.
      • CDS and SAP HANA CDS types inside cast expressions are mapped to their SQL-counterparts, as the CDS types can’t be used in a cast.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] to.cdl: Correctly render event typed as projection.
    • [cds-compiler@2.1.0] to.hdi.migration: Don’t generate ALTER for type change from association to composition or vice versa (if the rest stays the same), as the resulting SQL is identical.
    • [cds-compiler@1.50.4] to.hdbcds: CDS and SAP HANA CDS types inside cast expressions are mapped to their SQL-counterparts, as the CDS types can’t be used in a cast.
    • [cds-compiler@1.50.2] Correct calculation of dependent autoexposed entity name (fixing a potential regression with v1.50.0)
    • [cds-compiler@1.50.2] to.hdi.migration: Correctly handle “temporal” and other cases when rendering expressions

This bug could only occur, when explicitly changing the tenant context in the Request Context after already starting a database transaction. This situation is now detected with an exception and dedicated database transactions or ChangeSet Contexts must be opened for each tenant.
    • [cds.java@1.15.0] Fixed a bug that caused issues with associations as keys in draft-enabled entities.
    • [cds.java@1.15.0] Fixed a bug that caused the creation date instead of the last changed date of a draft entity to be considered during the draft garbage collection.
    • [cds.java@1.15.0] Fixed a bug that caused getDefinition() of ApplicationService and RemoteService to return the service definition from the tenant-independent model.

    • [cds.java@1.15.0] Fixed a bug in cds-maven-plugin, where using command line argument -Dskip=true skips the goals install-node, install-cdsdk, cds, and npm at once. Now, each of these goals has it’s own skip property: cds.cds.skip, cds.install-cdsdk.skip, cds.install-node.skip, and cds.npm.skip.
    • [cds.java@1.14.1] Fixed a bug that prevented authorized users to read draft metadata or texts of a draft entity (for example, /<draft-entity>/DraftAdministrativeData or /<draft-entity>/texts).

      • Supports various kinds of entity changes: entity addition/deletion/change (the latter including element additions/deletions/type changes).
      • Provides option to render any element type change as ALTER TABLE DROP to prevent deployment issues due to incompatible data (default for length reductions or association/composition changes).
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] to.cdl: Smart artifact references are now rendered explicitly via : notation
    • [cds@4.5.0] cds.server provides an option to switch off automatically generated index.html served at /: Do that in a custom server.js:
      const cds = require('@sap/cds')
      // ...
      module.exports = (o) => cds.server({ ...o, index:false })
      
    • [cds@4.5.0] The default index.html now honors the system’s setting for dark mode.
    • [cds@4.5.0] Former package @sap/cds-reflect is now embedded in @sap/cds
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] The serve configuration of application services now allows to explicitly configure which services are served by which protocol and even allows to use different service paths for different protocols. This is enabled by the new annotations @protocols and @endpoints, which adds to the already existing @path annotation. The same can now also be configured in configuration files in the cds.application.services.<key>.serve section.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Added a new artifact cds-feature-k8s, which implements service binding support for Kubernetes & Kyma. By default service bindings are expected as secrets under /etc/secrets/sapcp/<service name>/<service instance name>, using key-value based secrets files. Additional service bindings with arbitrary secrets paths can be specified under the cds.environment.k8s.serviceBindings property.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] OData V2/V4 PATCH or PUT requests now put key values from the URL into the data map. This ensures that keys are immutable and makes key values available directly in POJO arguments of event handlers.

    • [cds.java@1.13.0] CQN Selects on remote OData services now support inline count.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Pseudo variables like $user.locale are now handled in CQN statements to remote OData services.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] CQN statements using byId() can now be executed on remote OData services.

    • [cds.java@1.13.0] CQN statements using batched updates or batched deletes can now be executed on remote OData services.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Batched or parameterized CQN statements that result in multiple OData requests are now executed as a $batch request on remote OData services. All those requests are combined into a single changeset to ensure atomicity.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Action and function calls can now be executed on remote OData services.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Added a first draft of an Outbox Service API.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Simplified the $batch access log line to omit host, port and service path, which is the same in every request of the batch.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Added a new API to retrieve authentication information, for example the JWT token of the current user. It can be accessed from the CdsRuntime using getProvidedAuthenticationInfo. The new API replaces the former internal AuthenticatedUserClaimProvider.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] The cds-services-archetype now supports the creation of new CAP Java projects with OData V2 support. Add command line argument -DodataVersion=v2 to choose OData V2 support.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] The goal addIntegrationTest of the cds-maven-plugin automatically detects the OData version of the CAP Java project and adds the corresponding integration test class.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] The goal install-cdsdk of the cds-maven-plugin provides a new command line argument cds.install-cdsdk.force=true to force a new installation of @sap/cds-dk.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] The goal cds of the cds-maven-plugin validates the version of the installed @sap/cds-dk against a minimum required version. If the required version isn’t fulfilled the build fails.

    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Draft scenario all active is extended
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Skip integrity checks via:
      • @assert.integrity: false on entity and service level (was only on association level)
      • cds.env.features.assert_integrity = false as global config (private cds.runtime.skipIntegrity will be removed)
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Skip SAP HANA’s localization feature (WITH PARAMETERS ('LOCALE' = '<locale>')) via cds.env.features.with_parameters = false
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Deprecation warning for req.run
    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] finds references for annotations

      Changed

    • [cds-dk@3.4.0] cds init uses latest Maven Java archetype version 1.12.1 for creating Java projects.
    • [cds-dk@3.4.0] cds init allows _ in project name and leaves conversion to Maven Java archetype.
    • [cds-dk@3.4.0] cds init --add notebook and cds add notebook now use a Python venv and offer a default Jupyter Notebook viewer.
    • [cds-dk@3.4.0] Multitarget Node.js applications can now be initialized with multitenancy support by running cds init --add mta,mtx. (beta)
    • [cds-dk@3.3.5] Bump versions of @sap/cds
    • [cds-dk@3.3.4] Bump versions of @sap/cds and axios
    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] extension is now called SAP CDS language support
    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] uses axios@0.21.1
    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] uses @sap/cds-lsp@4.3.0 (see corresponding changelog for details)
    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] uses @sap/cds-compiler@1.49.0
    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] new user options for where-used requests
      until now this functionality was enabled by default and now needs to be enabled via user options:
      • generic annotations - where a certain annotation ‘class’ or ‘namespace’ is used
      • strings literals - where same string literals are used
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] new user options for where-used request
      until now this functionality was enabled by default and now needs to be enabled via user options
      • generic annotations - where a certain annotation ‘class’ or ‘namespace’ is used
      • strings literals - where same string literals are used
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] consumes cds-compiler 1.49.0
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] compatibility with early versions of cds-compiler 2.x
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] simplified consumption of CDS textmate grammar for Jetbrain IDEs
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] OData/EDMX: Change the EntityType precedence of the OData term definition AppliesTo= attribute. If AppliesTo contains both EntityType and EntitySet, the annotation was assigned to the entity type. Extending an AppliesTo=[EntitySet] with EntityType would be OData compliant but incompatible for clients, which still expect the annotation at the set and don’t perform the full lookup. With this change, EntitySet and EntityType are treated individually, effectively annotating the type and (if available) the set. This fixes both extendability and client behavior.
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] to.hdbcds/hdi/sql: Reject using associations or compositions in query elements starting with $self or $projection.
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] OData: Update vocabularies ‘Common’, ‘PersonalData’, ‘UI’.
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] Update vocabularies ‘Aggregation’, ‘Common’
    • [cds@4.5.0] SAP Fiori preview is now disabled if NODE_ENV is production, to avoid any runtime overhead there. You can enable it with configuration cds.features.fiori_preview: true.
    • [cds@4.4.10] cds build for SAP HANA now only filters CSV files if it’s needed, for example, if they contain comment lines.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Entities annotated with @cds.autoexpose are now read-only, if they’re auto-exposed by the CDS compiler (@cds.autoexposed), regardless if they’re accessed directly or through a path navigation. Composition children of such entities inherit the read-only attributes of their parents now. This ensures that auto-exposed value helps (and, for example, their localized texts) are protected from write operations.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Composition child entities (@cds.autoexposed, but not @cds.autoexpose) are now forbidden as the root of a path, regardless if they’re also the target of the path or not. They should always be accessed through a path navigation starting from their parent entity. Draft-enabled entities continue to be an exception to this rule.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] The DraftAdministrativeData structure is only created once for a single draft document (root draft entity with all of its composition children). Earlier a dedicated DraftAdministrativeData structure was created for each entity in the draft document. This fixes issues where the user, who changed the draft last, or the last changed timestamp weren’t consistent across the draft document.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Temporal timestamps from sap-valid-at, sap-valid-from, and sap-valid-to query parameters are now truncated to microseconds, as this is the general granularity of timestamps in CDS.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] The error messages for Constraint Violation errors have been improved, by distinguishing not null constraint violations from unique constraint violations. With that the previous general error code 409001 (CONSTRAINT_VIOLATED) has been deprecated and is replaced by the more specific error codes 409003 (VALUE_REQUIRED) and 409006 (UNIQUE_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATED).
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Renamed send methods in MessagingService to emit to avoid confusions with function names in Node.js.
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Renamed property cds.datasource.serviceName to cds.datasource.binding (previous name is deprecated, but still available)
    • [cds.java@1.13.0] Renamed property cds.security.xsuaa.serviceName to cds.security.xsuaa.binding (previous name is deprecated, but still available)
    • [cds4j@1.18.0] Fix projection resolvement of aliased to-many associations
    • [cds4j@1.18.0] Fix SQL exception on updates having only key values as data
    • [cds4j@1.18.0] Fix NoSuchElementException when using binary elements in where condition

    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] ETag added for expanded entities
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Use cds.log() throughout (incl. odata-server)
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Replace text keys with default text (that is, w/o locale) before logging error
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Read after write on draft activate doesn’t read deep
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] On http error (status >= 400) during remote service consumption: log details and throw gateway error
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] accept=application/json,text/plain is used as default accept header for remote service calls
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Improved custom error message in case acquiring a client from the pool timed out
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Metadata endpoints are protected by default if respective service is protected. Deactivate metadata endpoint protection via cds.env.odata.protectMetadata = false.
    • [cds-runtime@2.8.0] Streamlined module names used in logging

    Fixed

    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] temporary folder for CDS Preview commands is no longer part of project to avoid files being checked in
    • [vscode-cds@3.3.0] re-validates workspace after an initial annotation plugin installation to show annotation errors w/o the need of manual code edit
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] dependency analysis for compilation: if a changed file has dependencies to the roots, but the root models don’t cover it, no longer it will compile multiple times
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] translation code action wasn’t shown in the context of annotations
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] code completion for annotations had a trailing @
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] annotation assignment spanned beyond semantical end
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] code formatting of brackets enclosing multiple elements in annotations had wrong indentation
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] indexing of on condition for elements was broken
    • [cds-lsp@4.3.0] update regex to highlight one and many keywords properly
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] Structured foreign key and forward association reference paths used in ON condition definitions are now translatable into the correct short form ON condition paths in Association to Join translation.
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] to.hdbcds: Aliased mixin-associations are now handled correctly
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] Using a hex literal like x'D028' (in a CSN input) could lead to an error.
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] for.odata:
      • Fix a bug in constraint calculation if principal has no primary keys.
      • Don’t overwrite user-defined @Core.Computed annotation.
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] to.hdi/sql/hdbcds: Fixed a bug during processing of skipped/otherwise not db-relevant artifacts.
    • [cds-compiler@1.49.0] to.hdbcds/hdi/sql:
      • Types aren’t rendered anymore for SAP HANA in quoted mode.
      • Aliases are now respected when resolving $self
      • Association clones are now prepended with three underscores (_) instead of two to prevent shadowing of context names or usages
    • [cds@4.5.1] Update @sap/cds-runtime dependency
    • [cds@4.5.0] cds build now correctly supports multitenant applications defining multiple database modules, for example, one database for tenant-related data and one for shared data.
    • [cds@4.5.0] cds deploy --to hana does no longer fail with an invalid service name error if ‘.’ is used in the MTA ID.
