Question about Data Format Version

bruno.buzzi
Alex/Erik,

Is there any documentation about difference in the data format in Orbeon ?

https://doc.orbeon.com/configuration/properties/persistence.html#persistence-layer-configuration

Difference between 4.0.0 and 4.8.0.

I'm upgrading my persistence layer for GemStone/S and some services (since
2017.1) have added this new url parameter (data-format-version).

So far my persistence layer work ok with 4.0.0 format. But if i want to add
support from 4.8.0 ? Is there any documentation ?
Or it will be better to switch the format version and see what is the body
in the request ?
(is this applied to Form Instances only ? )

regards,
bruno

Hi Bruno,

By default, even newer versions of Orbeon Forms use the old format. While
the way repeated grids is more consistent in the new format it is really OK
to keep the "old format" in the database.

The increased consistency simplified code that manipulates the data in
Orbeon Forms, but again, it is fine to store the old format, and Orbeon
Forms will covert back and forth when it reads/writes data from/to the
database.

This to say that if I were you, I wouldn't be too concerned by supporting
the "new format" ;).

Alex
