Major Release - v9.0
In case you missed it, erwin Collector has been renamed! From this version 8 onwards Collector will be known as erwin DT (Data Transformation). As the product is decoupled from its Casewise roots, and repositioned into erwin's EDGE platform, we feel this name better reflects the products ETL capability.
erwin Mapping Manager Adapter
Pull Mappings and their attributes from erwin Mapping Manager with our new Web Services Adapter and use that data in other applications including the erwin suite*. Users can also bring across hyperlinks for specific Mappings for easy navigation.
erwin Metadata Manager Adapter
Pull data from Metadata Manager with our new Web Services Adapter and use that data in other applications including the erwin suite*.
(*erwin products must have DT Adapter)
CAST HighLight Adapter
•Domains can be read (Name, CHL ID) and used to update the source model, so to provide the context when creating new applications
•All application belonging to a parent domain and its subdomains will be read (Name, CHL ID) and used to update the source model, so to update applications in CAST
•Based on source data (Name, CAST HighLight ID, and the CAST HighLight ID of the Domain which the application belongs to are expected) the domain will be created (ID null or 0) or updated (ID equal to an existing CAST HighLight ID).
•Based on source data (Name, CAST HighLight ID, and the Name and CAST HighLight ID of the Domain which the application belongs to are expected) the application will be created (ID null or 0) or updated (ID equal to an existing CAST HighLight ID).
•Languages other than English used an incorrect encoding
•SQL server authentication

Major Release - v8.3 (Service Release)
This release improves several areas of the product areas, including:
•Now packaged with Adopt OpenJDK 8 to replace Oracle's JDK. Note that DT still supports Oracle JDK 8, but this is not included with the package.
•erwin Licensing support now include Offline Licenses (Note that users of DT 8.1 will need to reapply their license when upgrading to 8.3)
•Increased maximum character length for SQL Queries. It's now easier to upgrade from 7.0, for those with long queries.
•Security and defect fixes.
Major Release - v8.1
This release improves several areas of the product areas, including:
•A new name for Collector.... erwin Data Transformation, or erwin DT for short.
•erwin Licensing now governs the product, replacing the 2 step licensing used by Casewise.
This means that you will need to contact support to receive a new licensing code.
The erwin licensing system does now require the software to have access to the internet, in order to authenticate your license, each time the product is used. Note, if there is no connection available for a short period of time (1 to 3 days).
The software will continue to function, but will eventually request internet access to continue.
•Simpler usage - now no need to logon to erwin EA/BP.
The next thing you will notice, after a new name and upgraded licensing, is the fact that you don't need to login anymore.
Since erwin DT is becoming more central to the ETL landscape of erwin EDGE, and EA or BP are not always part of the workflow, the login to erwin EA/BP no longer made sense. This makes for simpler experience when using erwin DT, only requiring login to EA/BP when an input or output adapter to those products will actually be required.
•We now package the latest Java Runtime release for Java 8 (JRE 8u201). In future releases we intend to upgrade furtherto Java 11, but 8 seems to remain popular with customers, and this release includes all the latest security patches.
•New Adapter Support. We've been busy providing integrations to more products and platforms. So, we can now talk; Veracode, Zendesk, CloudHealth, Open Group File Format, SQL Database schema, and also have improved integration with erwin EA agile and DGc.
oDatabase Metadata adapter (for JDBC databases)
Read meta data (schema) from your favourite JDBC compatible databases. This allows a simple "Reverse Data Engineering" facility directly in Collector, so you can see your schema in other products, including erwin DGc.
oVeracode adapter - read status information about your Applications into your erwin products, to ensure your Enterprise Architecture is telling you the most up to date information.
oZendesk adapter - If you use Zendesk for tickets, it is now possible to read a whole host of information directly into your erwin products. Track tickets against Applications and provide updates inside your erwin product, and feed that back to the ticket in Zendesk. Even create new tickets against your EA, BP or DG project right inside erwin, and have your support team handle them as usual.
oCloudHealth adapter - Being able to know the state of your cloud applications from inside your Enterprise Architecture is critical to knowing the health of your EA as a whole. Now you can bring this information into your erwin products, and include this in your dashboards.
oBasic Generic JSON Adapter - Have an API you wish to talk to that we don't support. We can now handle simple JSON requests without a bespoke adapter. But as always, if you have something you'd really like to talk to, let us know and we'll see how we can help.
oAdded transformation to allow the export of elements and their relationships and properties into the Open Group File
Format (OGFF). Allowing simple export of your EA assets for consumption by other OGFF compatible products.
oAdded transformation to allow the import of OGFF elements and then their relationships into erwin products. Bring data
in from your other OGFF compatible products.
•erwin Workspace and Model Adapters:
oApplication connections and workspace/model adapters for EA Agile, DGC, or EA can be created from within the client.
oFor those who have REALLY complex workflows, you can now use more than 8 adapters in a single workflow
oAn external identifier stored as a property of an erwin EA/BP object can now be used when importing a dataset in EA Agile or DGC. This allows strong binding between objects in the two separate tools. Allowing updates to be more accurate, including the ability to rename in one tool, and see this in the other.
oWorkflows for any workspace/model adapter can be created and run without a separate logon
oLots of other little tweaks and fixes!
