PTV xServer internet update – Update of PTV xServer to API Version 2.16

We plan to perform maintenance on January, 13th 2020 that does not require any downtime.
The following tasks will be completed in the scope of this maintenance.

PTV World City Map [Here]- production/test/integration – cluster with API version 2:

  • PTV xServer update from version 2.14 to version 2.16
  • This update includes some changes in time out handling:
    We deactivated the computationTimeout (https://bit.ly/2PZE2gG) for requests.
    This will have the effect that all requests even on long lasting requests will be executed until the computation is finished, or for asynchronous requests until they will be stopped on request of the client.

Please test your application and report any problem immediately.
