GetSwizzled error in cache

 I  keep seeing  <INVALID OREF>zMypropertyGetSwizzled+3^myClass.2  in the error log.  In my case,  Myproperty   is a property of  myClass. And Myproperty points to the the object of other class in the system. This error happens to 2 properties in the same class, and they are both object properties. This error pops up occasionally, and make the debugging harder.

Anyone knows what the issues are?

the code causing the problem in looks most likely like this:

Set oid=$select(i%Myproperty="":"",1:$listbuild(i%Myproperty_""))


you are inside an ObjectMethod   and miss the actual Object  reference.
This happens when you try to access a property inside a Classmethod.
 classic mistake:

ClassMethod MyMethod(1,2,3) as %Status {
 set x=..Myproperty


correct use: 

ClassMethod MyMethod(oref,1,2,3) as %Status {
 set x=oref.Myproperty

Those codes are not real codes, just give an idea what is happening ( I can't post real codes). The real codes works fine until couple days ago I start seeing those errors.

the $zv returns:

Cache for UNIX (IBM AIX for System P5-64) 2010.2.4 (Build 802_1_17238) Tue Apr 4 2017 19:48:24 EDT

ClassMethod myfuct( id) As %String
  set ref=##class(myClass).%OpenId(id)
  If '$isobject(ref) quit "no object 1, no return"
  if '$isrobject(ref.
Myproperty1) quit "no object 2, no return"
  set str="my return: "_ref.Myproperty1.OtherClass1Property
  quit str


Please post this line of code (Open myClass -> See other code -> zMypropertyGetSwizzled routine, third line) :


class myClass extends (%persisten)


Property Someproperty As %String;


Property Myproperty1 As   OtherClass1;

Property Myproperty2 As  OtherClass2;

... some more other property total 215 properties in this class


class OtherClass1 extends (%persisten)


Property OtherClass1Property As %String;


ClassMethod myfuct( id) As %String


set ref=##class(myClass).%OpenId(id)

set str="my return: "_ref.Myproperty1.OtherClass1Property

quit str


Above is a  similar situation and codes. When myfuct is called, sometimes it throws a  <INVALID OREF> zMypropertyGetSwizzled+3^myClass.2

myClass is  a very busy table.

You need to press "View other code" button (or Ctrl+Shift+V) and post zMypropertyGetSwizzled routine.

zMypropertyGetSwizzled(%this) public {
If $zobjval(,/*i% Myproperty */163,0,3,163)="" Quit ""
Set oref=##class( OtherClass ).%Open($select($zobjval(,/*i%Myproperty*/163,0,3,163)="":"",1:$listbuild($zobjval(,/*i% Myproperty */163,0,3,163)_""))) If oref="" Quit ""
Set modstate=$zobjval(,0) Set $zobjval(,/*r%Myproperty*/164,0,3,164)=oref Set $zobjval(,0)=$e(modstate,1,$l(modstate)\2)_$e($zobjval(,0),$l(modstate)\2+1,*)
Quit oref }

In the above sample, Myproperty can be Myproperty1 or Myproperty2. Any thoughts?

you do 

set ref=##class(myClass).%OpenId(id)

but you don't check if you really got an object.  the id might be invalid
continue with 

if '$isobject(ref) quit ""

It is valid in the db, just not getting it.  Don't know why. I am new to this.

you need an oref in ref 
and also in Myproperty1, ... 
So you have to check both . see answer

Thanks! very Interesting find. I will try that tomorrow. GetSwizzled  means getting object from memory or what? I don't quite understand this.
