Atelier

Syndicate content 73 

I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Atelier 1.0

This is the debut release of our new Eclipse based plugin for developing code on Cache and Ensemble.

Highlights include

  •     Integrated Source Management
  •     Debugging
  •     Context based documentation
  •     Server Side browsing of multiple systems
  •     Compilation and Testing facilities

Atelier will be released independently of various server releases. The first versions of Cache and Ensemble that fully support Atelier are 2016.2 and higher. Facilities within Atelier itself will manage updating as we make newer versions available. You can download the Atelier client for the OS of your choice here:

You  probably have a similar experience.
The more I use Atelier the more I miss INSPECTOR  that I had in Studio!

First for PROPERTIES that can inherit a variable number of Parameters beyond imagination.
take %XML.Adapter as the most obvious.
next:
Where to  find all inherited methods that I eventually want to  overload? Take %Persistent as example.

Or where or how can %OnBeforeAddToSaveSet()  (the correct camel case) be overloaded

Hi,

This is a quick tutorial how to install and use TFS in Atelier. It is based on my self experience and some tricks that I 've noted.

If you are used to using visual studio maybe you feel that is a bit slow and heavy, but you have the same TFS panel as you have in Visual Studio, so don't need any special "training" to use it smiley

It's important don't store the file .buildpath because it has the server definition that you are working in a team, each one have the personal configuration, so the name of the server could be different.

To prevent it, create a file called .tfignore with this conten

A few people wrote to me asking about the infrastructure behind the Atelier Server implementation. Its neat and a worthwhile story to share so I am writing it up here as a post on the community. I want to go in to a little detail on why it was needed and then I will outline in detail how we went about implementing this

There are many good MUMPS developers who want to learn Caché Objects but do not know how to start.

At the same time, InterSystems is pushing the envelope of technology with a new development platform

such as Atelier along with Eclipse.

It is my aim in this book to help those developers bridge the gap into Caché Objects at the same time learn

Hi Community,

I would like to share with you my experience regarding  to debugging via Atelier.

I'm developing a REST API and would like to attach to a process when I call the API via a REST Client tool, for example Postman. The purpose is to inspect values from HEADER and BODY of the HTTP request during the debugging process.

Come on! How am I doing? I am going to demonstrate that by using a class from SAMPLES namespace.

1 - Open Atelier;

2 - Open your REST Service class;

3 - Go to the method related to the URI that you need to debug;

4 - Add a HANG (I suggest between 10 and 15 seconds) enough for you to be able to attach to the Caché / Ensemble process; See the image bellow:

 

 

5 - Change the view to the DEBUG view;

6 - Go to Run->Debug Configurations->Application Atelier Attach;

I have been meaning to make a post about this topic for a few weeks and the other day an issue came in through the WRC about it so it seems this is a conversation we should be having. I want to begin by taking a few moments to explain "Why Atelier" then we can talk about what this means in the general sense for Studio and Atelier and Caché developers. We have wrestled with what to do with Studio for years. When I moved to Product Management in 2008 this was already a "thing". At the time we could not reach a consensus. Some felt Studio was fine as is. Others wanted to investigate a path forward via the browser. Others felt embracing open source and using a tool like Eclipse was the right path. We all agreed on some basic level to the following must have features:

 

Context sensitive help - ie Intellisense for code completion

Debugging

Integrated Source Control

Refactorin

One of the benefits of Atelier is easy integration with source code management tools. Some Eclipse installations include the EGit plugin, or you can install it from the Eclipse marketplace. EGIt makes integration with Git and GitHub easy. Here are the steps I used to connect Atelier to a GitHub repository:

Is anyone in the fine community of developers who work with ISC technologies looking at Microsoft's Visual Studio Code offering?

One of Bill McCormick's recent posts about Atelier referred to Visual Studio being considered the best IDE. Granted, Code is far less of a tool than VS, and probably always will be. But it claims to be open source and cross-platform, i.e. Linux and OS X as well as Windows.

I'm not 100% sure my post belongs in the Atelier group, but didn't see any other group that would be a better home.  Might we benefit from a "Tools" group?

It's been 6 months since InterSystems released Atelier 1.0 and we continue to roll out enhancements and new features through the beta channel (please see the Atelier Download page for details). In the meantime, we have received a lot of messages from the Developer Community with ideas for further improvements. Based on your feedback, we created a roadmap for Atelier 1.1 so you can conveniently track when specific features are going to be integrated.

Below is a list of the major improvements planned for 1.1, which we are expecting to demo at the Global Summit.

1. Legacy File Support – You will no longer have to convert XML files to UDL, though conversion is still recommended.

2. Performance Improvements – Tasks that were slow in Atelier 1.0, such as copying files to a project, will show significant improvements

One of the many benefits of using Atelier for your ObjectScript development is its integration with a wide range of source control systems. This integration enables you to use modern development workflows which increase collaboration while minimizing the risk inherent to volatile code bases. 

Veteran ObjectScript developers can tell you about the workarounds that were needed before they could use source control systems with products like Caché and Ensemble. One of these was to treat the data store itself effectively as a code repository. And so shared development environments became essential for many of our customers to be productive and successful. 

For code shops that rely on shared development environments, adopting Atelier might seem too complicated. This article aims to provide a practical example to guide your team towards success with Atelier. 

You can find an overview of the problems and solutions in this article here, which is a good place to start. This article assumes that you are familiar with the concepts introduced there.

Stable Releases of the Atelier plugin are now available from the Eclipse Marketplace. Just search for Atelier on the Eclipse website (https://marketplace.eclipse.org) or - even better - in the Eclipse IDE.

This is an convenient way to install this plugin, because you no longer have to enter the URL.

ˮ This is one of my articles which was never published in English. Let's fix it!

Hello! This article is about quite a practical way of developing InterSystems solutions without using the integrated tools like Studio or Atelier. All the code of the project can be stored in the form of "traditional" source code files, edited in your favorite development environment (for example, Visual Studio Code), indexed by any version control system and arbitrarily combined with many external tools for code analysis, preprocessing, packaging and so on

The Widgets Direct sample application highlights many aspects of how to use InterSystems technologies to build a modern web application.  Features include:

  • Angular Material + AngularJS + JSON + REST based interactive application with Step by Step instructions on how it was built
  • Example scripts for server-side source control configuration with Perforce
  • %UnitTest logic for automated regression testing
  • %Installer class for automated instance installation from source control 
  • Scripts for Continuous Integration (CI) with Jenkins
  • Docker Manifest for automated provisioning of an instance

We will be adding articles which discuss the above list of features to drill down in more detail on each topic (feel free to  comment if there is something you want to see done sooner rather than later)

Where did the RemoteSystemsTempFiles project come from?

If you're using Atelier, you may have noticed a project called "RemoteSystemsTempFiles" in the Atelier Explorer and Project Explorer views. This project is automatically created by the Eclipse Remote Systems Explorer (RSE) on start-up. The RSE allows you to connect to and work with a variety of remote systems.

You can either hide this project within your views, or remove it completely by following the steps below

Most of projects on Caché, obviously, written not only in Cache ObjectScript, and should contain sources in other languages. Such as js or css for web-projects or any others. And it would be pretty good, if I could see all of files in one project, and possible to edit all of them. How to be in this case ?

And I think it is not a good idea, to place all project's sources in one root folder. Our project contains over 3 thousands classes and routines, and it is too difficult to find anything in such folder. Is not a good for it to use Java-way, and place every package in subfolder ?

There has been some confusion about how to edit Business Process Language (BPL) and Data Transformation Language (DTL) files in Atelier using the graphical editor. The following steps describe how to do this with Atelier version 1.0:

Copy the file you want to edit from the server to an Ensemble-enabled project in your Atelier workspace. To do this, find the file in the Server Explorer, right click and select Copy to project.

Open the file in the Atelier class editor just as you would any other class file.

Right-click in the class editor window and select Open diagram editor from the context menu. This action creates a second view of the same file open for editing with the BPL or DTL graphical editor. This new view occupies a new tab in the editor area

The Eclipse environment persists perspective data to enable layout customization and other features. Sometimes when this data becomes out of date, Eclipse fails to clear references to it. For example, upgrading a plug-in can leave behind data about an earlier version of that plug-in. This mechanism applies to all Eclipse plug-ins and is not unique to the Atelier plug-in.

In light of this: You may find that after upgrading from Atelier 1.1 to 1.2, your Atelier perspective looks something like:

To clean any persistent workbench data in Eclipse, you’ll want to use "-clearPersistedState". InterSystems suggests that after upgrading to Atelier 1.2 that you launch Eclipse from the command line using -clearPersistedState. This option is explained in the Eclipse Wiki here

Hi

I'm starting work with the Atelier. 

Starting from the point that Eclipse uses local files on the workstation, COS development can be versioned with market tools (For example GIT or Subversion).

I would like to know how the community has worked with code versioning, to create a consistent versioning model.

I initially have the following doubts:

  1.  Creation of WorkSpaces and Projects
  2.  Merge files
  3. Change Branch Functional Development
  4. Promotion of Environments: Development -> Homologation -> Production
  5. Generating Historical Tags

Thank you all.

To simplify the upgrade processes and to keep up with industry standards, we decided to make Atelier only available as an Eclipse plugin. Those of you who are currently using a standalone Atelier client will not be able to upgrade to a later version.

Please go to the Atelier Download page or see the sections below for the detailed instructions about installing Eclipse and the Atelier plugin. Feel free to reach out to support or leave a comment down below if you have any questions.

We just faced an issue of the Atelier main menubar being disabled (greyed out) after upgrading the macOS development machine to High Sierra. I would like to share my findings about the issue and how to fix it.

This seems to be a known problem affecting several Java applications including Eclipse if the macOS user's primary language is not English: https://www.eclipse.org/org/press-release/20170925criticalbug.php

I fixed the problem by applying the third workaround (not testing the first and second) listed in the referenced announcement as it seemed the least invasive one (just make sure to modify the Atelier.ini file instead of eclipse.ini in case of a stand-alone Atelier installation). Once Atelier/Eclipse is updated to the to-be-released Oxygen 4.7.1a version, the workarounds shouldn't be needed.

HTH,

Ondřej
