Third Party Updates


WorkItem:237198 - Update the version of Apache FOP used in the Social Program Management application


Apache™ FOP is a print formatter driven by XSL formatting objects and an output independent formatter. It is used by the Merative Social Program Management XML Server in the generation of PDF documents.
The version of FOP used by the Merative Social Program Management XML Server has now been updated from 2.2 to 2.3. FOP 2.3 contains some bug fixes and a number of improvements.


As a result of this upgrade, the following changes have been made in the Java Development Environment deliverable.


  • CuramSDEJ\lib\ - the versions of the specified FOP related JARs have been updated.
  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\ - the version of the specified FOP related JARs have been updated.


The existing avalon-framework.jar file present in previous versions of the FOP deliverable has now been split into two separate JAR files. As a result of this, the following changes have been made.


  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\avalon-framework-4.2.0.jar - this JAR file has been removed.
  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\avalon-framework-api-4.3.1.jar - this JAR file has been added.
  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\avalon-framework-impl-4.3.1.jar - this JAR file has been added.


The changes to the other FOP related JAR files include:


  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\batik-all-1.10.jar - new version of the batik-all JAR.
  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\fop-2.3.jar - new version of the FOP JAR.
  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\xmlgraphics-commons-2.3.jar - new version of the xmlgraphics-commons JAR.
  • CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\xml-apis-ext-1.3.04.jar - this JAR file has been added.


It should be noted that any references in custom scripts and other artifacts to the now removed "CuramSDEJ\xmlserver\avalon-framework-4.2.0.jar" should be updated to point to the two newly added avalon JARs as described above.

WorkItem:236184 - Rest API documentation pages are not being generated by Swagger


Issue Description:

The Rest APIs documentation pages are not being generated by Swagger. An error is thrown during the validation phase of Swagger's build.

User Interface Impact: No

Steps to Reproduce:


  1. Access the APIs documentation URL: "/Rest/api/definitions/v1"
  2. An error message is displayed.


All the Rest APIs documentation are now being properly generated.



WorkItem:236978 - Intake Applications - Rest API - Change IntakeApplicationFormAPI.getFormDetails method to return all fields


Issue Description

In certain scenarios the value of submitOnCompletionInd for an IntakeApplicationType was being ignored. This meant that when clicking "Save and Exit" during a script the user would see the popup allowing them to make a partial submission, which should not appear if submitOnCompletionInd is true.

User Interface Impact

Yes. A popup was appearing where it should not.

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Log in as jamessmith
  2. Start an application that has submitOnCompletionInd set to true (e.g. Rent Subsidy)
  3. Click "Save & Exit" during the script
  4. Choose to save the application
  5. Verify we are returned to the dashboard
  6. Resume the newly-saved application
  7. Click "Save & Exit" button


Expected: No popup appears. Application saves and exits and returns to the user dashboard.
Actual: Popup appears asking whether we want to submit a partial application, save or cancel.


The application now respects the value of submitOnCompletionInd and displays.
