XSLT 2.0 support

Uniface\’s support of XSLT 1.0 through XALAN only gives access to the limited number of functions available in the XSLT 1.0 specification. In today\’s environment where integration is high on the agenda, more tools are required to aid integration.
Please can we have a supported XSLT 2.0 implementation in Uniface?

Support for Oracle and MS SQL CLOB/NVARCHAR(MAX) in stored proc call

The idea is that when signature stored procedures are used in Uniface to call a stored proc that generates a lot of data, either in Uniface list format, or XML that we can get this information back into the Uniface layer to do some work on it.
There are a number of instances where it\’s a lot faster to hold simple logic or multiple table joins/queries to build a data packet in SQLland, but for example, you may want to pass the packet back to the caller, through your Uniface layer because this is where you hold your interface, security and other logic.
In some cases, you can bundle information together into a response packet, and this can minimise your round trips to the database that may have been required through the Uniface driver.
This would be for Solaris, Red Hat and Windows on Oracle or MS SQL server.
