Everything must come to an end

I finally got my new laptop after having a loaner for over a month so I can now resume blogging (at least more easily).  I’ve been excited about all of the new features and functionality of Essbase 11.1.2.4 and there has bee a flurry of blogs that have described that functionality. Today, Tim Tow posted one feature going away the VB API.   There are a number of other features that you might not be aware of as either completely gone or depreciated so they won’t be supported in the future.

Avoiding Memory Leaks in Exalogic when using the SDP Support from JDK 1.7
