  • ZPM Package deployment
  • Docker container usage

See the details below.<--break->

InterSystems Globals (key-value) - 2 points

InterSystems Globals are multidimensional sparse arrays that are being used to store any data in InterSystems IRIS. Each Globals node could be considered a key, which you can set a value for. InterSystems IRIS provides a set of APIs, including ObjectScript commands and Native API to manage Globals.

Introduce any of the new data-model API and collect 2 bonus points.

ZPM Package deployment - 2 points

You can collect the bonus if you build and publish the ZPM(ObjectScript Package Manager) package for your Full-Stack application so it could be deployed with:

zpm "install your-multi-model-solution"

command on IRIS with ZPM client installed.
