  • Update installer to fit with branding guidelines.
  • JFinder is not deleting temp files.
  • JFinder database setup utility gives JDBC driver error (remove MySQL support).

 Version 121023

  • Documents regularly stop processing until JFinder Service is restarted.

 Version 111031

  • AUTOFORM DM 7.x compatibility has been introduced.

 Version 111028

JFinder will shutdown after attempting licence activation - you will need to get the activation code from the logs.

  • JFinder could not read DST information on Windows 7 and Server 2008. Fixed by updating to latest 1.4.2 update. This is the same issue which affected AUTOFORM DM.

 Version 110819

  • Ignore hash commands with no value when it comes to the archiving (still pick them up for processing).
  • EMLREC with no Value in command tries to send and causes bounceback to the sender address.

 Version 110818

  • Reverted behavioural change to hash command processing in v110803.

 Version 110803

  • Will no longer log to stdout.txt by default (modified file). Ensure this file is overwritten as part of update, or removed prior to update.
  • Will no longer try to retrieve a file to update if PDMUPD is set to YES but PDMCUK is not set.
  • Will no longer insert '* No Value*' into any commands with unrecognised values, it will just ignore them and log a warning message.
  • JFinder will no longer try and lock a record itself before updating (as the update method in AUTOFORM DM webservices locks it implicitly anyway).
  • Poor database concurrency management leads to loss of data when archiving to V4 (it sometimes reused existing Page_ID).
  • Removed 255 character limit on hash commands.

 Version 110527

  • 'cfu' temp files being leftover by AUTOFORM DM caused by MD5 issues with JFinder as a result of:

- Concatenating 'fusf' temp files when failing to archive.

- JFinder document MD5 not matching AUTOFORM DM's (JFinder corrupting MD5).

- Should no longer experience 'cfu' temp files being left over in AUTOFORM DM (However AUTOFORM DM will need need an update in future fix this fully).

  • Setting the purge timers for PROCESSED files in JFinderV2.xml to 0 will now disable them and cause it to keep the files indefinitely. 
This is now the default configuration for failed files. Successful files remain defaulted to keep for 5 days only.

Version 100412

Released 12th April 2010

  • JFinder email retry leave files behind.
  • Order Acknowledgement

Version 91130

Released 30th November 2009

  • Unable to update settings while using Internet Explorer 8.

Version 90707

Released 7th July 2009

  • Create append functionality.
  • Enforce administrator privileges.


As part of the append functionality there are now two new converters, PDF to TIF and TIF to PDF. The appending functionality has the ability to append TIF to TIF and PDF to PDF. Combined with the two new converters there is thus the ability to effectively append PDF to TIF and TIF to PDF.
