First Update to Swingbench 2.5

Just a small update to swingbench... You can download the new build here

It fixes a few of bugs
  • Incorrect partitioning defaults specified in the oewizard and shwizards configuration files
  • Incorrect profile of transactions for “sh” benchmark
  • “sh” benchmark transaction generated queries for future values that didn’t exist
  • Checks not performed on allowed partitioning values in configuration files for wizard when run in command line
I’ve also added some functionality that should have been put in a long time ago. A drop down list of values for the connection properties. In previous versions of swingbench unless you knew the key values for a connection property it was impossible to add one. The new drop down list should make it much easier.

So the next obvious question is “What are all the connection properties and why did it take you so long to tell us?”. I have no idea why it took so long to tell people what they were. Consider it an over sight but let me try and correct that now.
