Hi all,

Posted a new blog entry regarding some new features coming in Web Connection 6.15 in regards to server loading that should greatly help with startup debugging of servers - especially under COM - and improve startup performance for servers in general.

Check it out, and if you have any thoughts please post them here for discussion.

Haven't had a chance to check out the new startup features, but did run into some issues when upgrading to 6.15. Went through the normal process of copying in the new code, recompiled the PRGs and class libs, rebuilt my project. But when trying to launch the exe I ran into a series of "class definition not found" errors. Ended up adding the following SET PROCEDUREs to my Server::onLoad routine: WebControl, WebControls, WebControlsJquery, webpageparser

Not sure what changed, but up till now I was always able to access those classes without specifically referencing them

Yes that's a change - I've removed web control framework classes from the default inclusion so you have to explicitly add those back in wconnect_overwrite.h with:

#UNDEFINE WWC_LOAD_WEBCONTROLS
#DEFINE WWC_LOAD_WEBCONTROLS        .T.

Make sure you recompile after updating this setting.

Did you pull the Web Control Framework references out of the help CHM, or are they just hidden somewhere?

Some of us still use that technology...

Removed from the help file but still listed in the online docs.
