CAST Database Extractor
The CAST Database Extractor now supports:
- (by reference) the extraction of schemas on Oracle 18c and above in line with Oracle's updated release cycle, however the extractor will handle the schemas as Oracle 12c schemas and no new syntax or features introduced in these newer releases is supported.
- Case sensitive passwords (introduced in Oracle 12c R2).
SAP / ABAP rules
"CX_ROOT" should not be used in TRY .. CATCH.. ENDTRY block (8412)
The parent technical criterion for this rule was incorrectly set to "61020: Programming Practices - Modularity and OO Encapsulation Conformity", but it has been changed to "61014: Programming Practices - Error and Exception Handling". See also Changes in results post upgrade - 8.3.16.
