ReadMe Last Updated: December 2, 2009. Any updates to these notes will be available at docs.embarcadero.com.
Thank you for using Embarcadero ToolBox. The ToolBox enables you to access a wide range of applications from a single launch point. You can launch, install, update, and select product versions, all from a single user interface.
The ToolBox provides a primary entry point for the various products configured with the ToolCloud. The ToolCloud lets you centrally provision, manage and update software and licenses inside your own firewall. You control what applications and software versions are available to end users via their ToolBox. With network licensing, you can use the ToolCloud to centrally control the list of authorized users and their product licenses.
For more information, see the ToolBox User Guide at docs.embarcadero.com.
What's New in ToolBox 1.7
What Was New in ToolBox 1.6
What's New in ToolBox 1.7
Product List Changes
The following products are updated in 1.7:
Automatically Detecting Proxies
When it starts, the ToolCloud now detects internet proxies on your system. If it finds a proxy configuration, it updates the catalina.properties file with the proxy information, and restarts the ToolCloud.
The standalone ToolBox handles this in a different way than the ToolCloud. It detects internet proxies on your system and creates an aaclient.properties file that includes the proxy information. If an aaclient.properties file already exists from a previous configuration, then that file will be used.
Resuming Interrupted Downloads
New Pause and Resume options help you manage interrupted product downloads. If the connection drops, use the Pause button. Restore the connection and then use the Resume button to continue.
What's New in ToolBox 1.6
Product List Changes
DB Optimizer 2.0 has been updated.
Provision A La Carte Products (All-Access Pass Not Required)
You can now license individual products (outside of All-Access) to run from the ToolCloud, with InstantOn. Please contact Sales for more information.
An a la carte license is listed in the Current Licenses page. Using the ToolCloud web console, an administrator can assign licenses to users. When a user connects to the ToolCloud, the ToolBox displays products assigned to the user. When a user launches a product, the appropriate license is copied to the license directory on the user's machine.
Automatically Update Licenses When Updating the Product Catalog
Prior to 1.6, you had to manually update the ELC with new .slip files when new products and versions were added. Now the licenses automatically update, instead of requiring the administrator to import new .slip files.
Product Name ChangesThe name "All-Access Client" is now "ToolBox" and "All-Access Server" is now "ToolCloud". The All-Access ToolCloud and All-Access ToolBox support the products and licensing model as provided with the All-Access Pass. The Embarcadero ToolCloud and ToolBox also support the "a la carte" licensing model.
The ToolBox is a Windows application with no significant requirements.
Products available in the ToolCloud have the same approximate memory and disk size requirements as they do independent of the ToolCloud. For the requirements of individual Embarcadero products, consult the product documentation at: http://docs.embarcadero.com.
