    This is a coding example working on IRIS 2020.2 
    It will not be kept in synch with new versions 
    It is also NOT serviced by InterSystems Support !

    My demo video is now also available to watch the demo in operation.


    Hi folks,
    It's time now for a Micro Service Demo with a total fresh IRIS Image and an image that you both PULL with
    docker  and run with only 4 lines of docker commands. 
    June 1st, 2020 - rcc

    There is now a compact All-in-1 version available that combines all parts in a single container image.
    For details see: IRIS-NativeAPI-Nodejs-compact
    May 24, 2020 - rcc

    I have added a simplified installation using Docker, see context
    May 25, 2020 - rcc

    There are enhanced scripts suitable & tested for Linux & Windows available here
    May 26, 2020 - rcc

    This demo is a redesign of the WebSocket Client based on Node.js existing already for Caché. The major changes:

    • use of the new IRIS Native API for Node.js  especially Working with Global Arrays
    • change from a directly triggered client to a server design
    • put the result into a separate docker image as an example for a MicroService / MicroServer
    • add a simple interface in IRIS to control the MicroService execution.

    In the past, reading information from a bar code was limited to a simple alphanumeric code. The creation of a bar code with more than one dimension (2D), especially the QR Code, allowed to increase the amount and variety of data stored in a bar code. While conventional bar codes are capable of storing a maximum of approximately 20 digits, the QR Code is capable of handling several tens to hundreds of times more information. This revolutionized the markets. Now QR codes are everywhere and can be very useful for storing textual, numeric, alphanumeric and even binary data.
