What can happen in 24 hours? Major product improvements are originating from FedEx Days winners include:
FedEx day #1 - on Viking Line, September 2011
First place: Workflow Profiler
Workflow profiler was a project building a visual tuning assistance tool build-into the desktop GUI. When a Workflow is executed using "Workflow Profiling", MediationZone continuously samples the load, i.e. the amount of processed UDRs, or raw data, per second. The average load for a Workflow is calculated on a regular basis and the status for all routes and agents will be determined based on the average.
The Workflow Monitor visually shows the load status for agents and routes using symbols to indicate which agents that are the slowest and which routes the data usually takes though the Workflow. This way, it is easily possible to find bottlenecks in the Workflow. This tool significantly helps the performance tuning challenges seen in any project and secures optimal usage of the hardware. This functionality has been included as a standard feature in MediationZone 5.1 FR5.
Second place: Link from APL Code to APL Profile
The team working with this idea wanted to improve the usability for our APL Editor through new navigation capabilities. The APL editor now has a shortcut from the Analysis and Aggregation agents to the APL profile. From the APL editor it is now possible to find all places where a function is being used. This functionality has been included as a standard feature in MediationZone 5.1 FR5 and helps all developers using our product to build their projects faster.
Third place: Tabbed GUI
Avoiding a cluttered desktop with many open windows, this project provided MediationZone Desktop with a tabbed user interface, which allows for having more than one Configuration open in the same window and to easily switch between different Configurations. The functionality provides a modern, browser like look and feel and helps separating test and live environments in a structured way. This functionality has been included as a standard feature in MediationZone 6.0’s new Developer User Interface.
