Release 2.1 - April 12, 2016

posted Feb 15, 2016, 3:22 PM by Max Tardiveau   [ updated Feb 16, 2016, 3:01 PM ]

Tomcat 8.0.32 is NOT supported -- there is a bug in org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoaderBase.filter which prevents the proper operation of the DBaseTypes resource. The bug is that, if the Tomcat classloader is asked about a class named "org" (as will happen if the JavaScript engine requests a class), there is an exception:

java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 3
at java.lang.String.charAt(
at org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoaderBase.filter(
at org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoaderBase.loadClass(

The Tomcat team are aware of this problem (, it should be fixed in the next release.

This is the initial release of CA Live API Creator.  It contains:

  • API Server - RESTful server
Known Issues:

 Issue    Work around
 In the API Creator, you cannot create a new Authentication Provider (EGL-402) The only way to create or edit an auth provider is currently to use the REST API directly. See this page for some related hints.
 Under some circumstances, importing multiple resources can result in duplicated sub resources This page explains to identify the problem, and correct it by deleting / re-importing the resource.
