    6.0 to 6.1 upgrade causing backslash characters '\' to duplicate from server to postgres 10

    Postgres driver postgresql-42.2.2.jar (Postgres 10.4.1)
    SmartClient Version: v11.1p_2019-08-10/Enterprise Deployment (built 2019-08-10)
    SmartGWT EE 6.1p Nightly
    Tested in FF 68 and IE11

    Seeing an issue where backslashes are duplicated upon save to the Postgres database. I realize this is very platform-specific but was wondering if there were any changes made between version 6.0 and 6.1 involving Isomorphic's JDBC driver and its interaction with Postgres. We have verified that direct insert statements are not causing this behavior. Also we have verified that our servlet (which extends IDACall) inspecting the data is not showing any duplicating backslashes. Everything seems to work up until our dsRequest.execute(). Do you have any idea what could be causing this behavior?

    Our best guess is that you upgraded both SmartGWT and Postgres (or its configuration). This could potentially cause a problem where we applied workarounds for differences between Postgres versions, but those were imperfect. Since your report we made changes addressing these workarounds. So, we recommend you to download latest 6.1 nightly build and see if the issue is gone. Let us know please how it worked for you.


      This was fixed in an August 2019 nightly, thanks
