What is the recommended way to convert a %Stream.Object to a Ens.Response message?

First of all thanks for your help.

We have developed a REST Operation. We wonder how could we face that String do have a character limit.

We just need to convert httpRequest.HttpResponse , which is a stream , because $isobject(response.Data) returns 1; which has a JSON inside it, and we need to convert it to a Ens.Response.

This response is structured as same as the JSON's properties: 

   Class Mensajes.Response.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINResponse Extends Ens.Response

    Property data As list Of EsquemasDatos.CConcertadostoPACS.Radiologia.BusquedaOrdenes;



 Class EsquemasDatos.CConcertadostoPACS.Radiologia.BusquedaOrdenes Extends (%SerialObject, %XML.Adaptor)

    Property "ID_SICH" As %String(MAXLEN = "");

    Property "FECHA_DERIVACION" As %String(MAXLEN = "");

    Property "MEDICO_PETICIONARIO" As %String(MAXLEN = "");


We have developed it as:

Class Operaciones.REST.Radiologia.CConcertadosOrdenesNEGRINv01r00 Extends EnsLib.REST.Operation

    Parameter INVOCATION = "Queue";

    Method BusquedaOrdenes(pRequest As Mensajes.Request.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINRequest, pResponse As Mensajes.Response.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINResponse) As %Library.Status
        //Creamos Request y Response HTTP
        Set httpRequest=##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
        set tResponse = ##class(%Net.HttpResponse).%New()
        set claseAux = ##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonProvider).%New()

        set URL        = ..Adapter.URL

        set httpRequest.SSLConfiguration = ..Adapter.SSLConfig
        $$$LOGALERT("URL: "_URL)    

        // El body va relleno
        set httpRequestBody = ""
        //Convertimos el OBJETO devuelto por el Proceso en JSON
        set tSC = claseAux.%WriteJSONStreamFromObject(.pOutput,.pRequest,,,,"aeloqtuw")
        set json = pOutput.Read()
        do httpRequest.EntityBody.Write(json)    
        while (httpRequest.EntityBody.AtEnd = 0) {
            set httpRequestBody = httpRequest.EntityBody.Read()
        $$$LOGALERT("httpRequestBody: "_httpRequestBody)
        do httpRequest.EntityBody.Rewind()
        ;set tSC=httpRequest.Get(URL,0)
        set tSC=httpRequest.Post(URL,0)

        //Lanzamos excepcion si hubo error
        if $$$ISERR(tSC){

        //Obtenemos respuesta
        set tResponse = httpRequest.HttpResponse
        $$$LOGASSERT("httpRequest.HttpResponse.ContentLength: "_httpRequest.HttpResponse.ContentLength)
        $$$LOGALERT("$isobject(tResponse.Data): "_$isobject(tResponse.Data))

        ;set linea = ""
        ;set linea = ##class(%GlobalCharacterStream).%New()
        #dim dynamicobject as %Library.DynamicObject
        set dynamicobject = ##class(%Library.DynamicAbstractObject).%FromJSON(tResponse.Data)
        set json = dynamicobject.%ToJSON()
        $$$LOGINFO("json: "_json)
        //Leemos respuesta
        while (tResponse.Data.AtEnd = 0) {
            ;set linea = linea_$ZCONVERT(tResponse.Data.Read(),"I","UTF8")
            ;do linea.Write($ZCONVERT(tResponse.Data.Read(),"I","UTF8"))
            ;do linea.Write(tResponse.Data.Read())
            set linea = linea_tResponse.Data.Read()
        ;do linea.Rewind()
        ;$$$LOGINFO("linea.Read(): "_linea.Read())
        ;$$$LOGINFO("$LENGTH(linea): "_$LENGTH(linea))
        ;do linea.Rewind()
        ;$$$LOGINFO("linea: "_linea)
        // se transforma el objeto JSON a un objeto local
        ;set tSC= claseAux.%ConvertJSONToObject(linea,"Mensajes.Response.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINResponse",.pResponse,1)    
        ;set tSC= claseAux.%ConvertJSONToObject(linea.Read(),"Mensajes.Response.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINResponse",.pResponse,1)    
        set tSC= claseAux.%ConvertJSONToObject(json,"Mensajes.Response.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINResponse",.pResponse,1)    
        ;$$$LOGINFO("Texto error: "_$System.Status.GetErrorText(tSC))
        //Rellenamos response
        ;set pResponse = ##class(Mensajes.Response.CConcertadostoPACS.Radiologia.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINResponse).%New()
        ;set = json

        Quit pResponse

    XData MessageMap
      <MapItem MessageType="Mensajes.Request.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINRequest">


Our worry is that the method "%ConvertJSONToObject" required a %String as first parameter, so it is being limited to the System's limits for Strings.

We wonder how could we just convert the %Stream.Object to structured Ens.Response, even if it is too big.

Could you help us please?

Thanks for your help

Hi Yone,

I would keep it simple, avoid unpacking JSON here and make pResponse a generic Ens.StreamContainer

Something like this should do it...

set tSC=httpRequest.Post(URL,0)
if $$$ISERR(tSC) return tSC  //no need to throw, the director will handle tSC
set pResponse=##class(Ens.StreamContainer).%New()
return pResponse.StreamSet(tResponse.Data)

Hello Yone,

Why don't you use %Stream.GlobalCharacter stream object to store  Long string instead of %String property. You can extend your class with %JSON.Adaptor and create a JSON object and directly import with your contents like below.

ClassMethod Import()
    set json=[{"ID_SICH":"121212","FECHA_DERIVACION":123,"MEDICO_PETICIONARIO":(tResponse.Data)}]
    set obj = ##Class(Mensajes.Response.Radiologia.CConcertados.BusquedaOrdenesNEGRINResponse).%New()
    set stt= o.%JSONImport(json)
    if $$$ISERR(stt) write $SYSTEM.OBJ.DisplayError(stt)
    set stt= obj.%Save()
    if $$$ISERR(stt) write $SYSTEM.OBJ.DisplayError(stt)
