The cdirectmgr utility will no longer be included with product distributions beginning with the Caché 2016.2 release . This was an older VB application (predating the Caché cube) which allowed users to define server connections for Visual M/Caché Direct applications. As VB 6 is no longer supported by Microsoft, we will no longer ship this component. The same functionality is already available from the cube utility.

It is also posted in Compatibility blog.

What is the recommended approach to handle the following scenario: Large number of HL7 messages are serviced via Ensemble. Those messages are then transformed and routed to an Operation which calls a web service which does a number of different activities. If will do address normalization, location geo coding, MPI lookup and resolution, and insert into a SQL Server database to stage for an analytics product. Unfortunately all of this work takes time and the first thing that happens in the web service is a lock taken out on the Patien in SQL Server. Each call can take seconds where the message input is taking milliseconds. This starts to impact the operation queue as the soap calls can be blocked by the locks. The Ensemble operation is waiting on the web service to return.

Zen Reports has offered multiple choices for direct printing including use of Adobe Reader or Foxit reader. Recent changes in Windows 10 and in the readers themselves have made it no longer possible to invoke these readers from background processes in Windows 10 and all future versions. Because of this Zen Reports will no longer support printing with these tools on Windows 10.

Windows 10 support was added for 2015.1 and 2015.2.  On Windows 10, the only option for direct printing with Zen Reports will be Qoppa JPDFPrint.

Installations running on older versions of Windows with older versions of Caché will continue to work but a migration plan should be considered immediately to move to Qoppa JPDFPrint.

Sites running on older versions of Windows will not be affected (even on upgrading Caché) unless and until they update the OS to Windows 10 or lat

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

I'm working on a proposal for a deployment tool development project and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with such a thing.  

We use Healthshare and implementations for new clients are tedius and lengthy.  Lots of ensemble service, registry value, lookup tables, namespaces and other things have to be created and configured. 

I would like to create a Zen or CSP page based deployment tool that can do all this with a few parameters and some custom code.

Has anyone done this?  What are some pitfalls you ran into?  Any unique ideas you included?  Other general thoughts?

Hi all,

I was wondering, what is your favourite public cloud provider?

What is your level of engagement with the cloud provider? Are you testing their infrastructure? In which case I'd expect you being progressing a parallel test with at least a second provider ;-) Or, are you already running a production environment?

--

 

OK, so, let me be the first one to share my experience with one specific cloud provider

Hi,

We do have a production including a SOAP.OutboundAdapter that make a request to a .NET WCF Service. The response from that service vary in size. When it come to large one, we talk about maybe 8000 records (with 6-8 attributes per record) in xml, the adapter always give a timout. Even if we put a high number of seconds or set -1. After 1 1/2h still nothing get back. It's just standing there and waiting for ever.

Our .NET developer have look at it (on the WCF-service)  and from ther point of view they say that it seems like Ensemle can't handle such big responses.

In .Net it.s possible to put the property "maxReceivedMessageSize" when they expecting large size responses.

Is it possible to do the same in ensemble or is it another best practise to solve this problem?

Sincerely, Michael Lundberg

I'm writing some custom functions for use in a routing rule.  I have a few that are working, but right now I'm trying to use one that has no parameters.  Typically this would be a sub instead of a function, but I'm not familiar enough with Cache to know what I need to do here. 

Here is the code

We heard from a customer who wanted to display a version number as a read-only production setting. During the build on the build server, this version number is added to the Production class. This works fine, and the Version is displayed in the Portal, but the customer wanted to write protect it, so the enduser can’t change it. The customer had defined the setting like this:

Property Version As %String;
Parameter SETTINGS = "Version:Info";

We advised the customer to define SETTINGS like this instead:

Parameter SETTINGS = "Version:Alerting:label"

where label is the control to use and Alerting the group where the setting will appear.

For details on this option and related ones, se

The minimum interval between invocations of the adapter by the Ensemble framework. For adapters that poll for external events, this is the polling interval. However, most polling adapters will process all inputs immediately if several are detected at one time. This is also the interval at which each Business Service will check for shutdown requests.

Is it seconds or what?  The default is 15

Do to unforseen circumstances the Atelier build that was distributed with the Cache 2016.2 field test had certain incompatibilites which prevented it's effective use with the server that it was bundled with.

We are working on remediating this regretable situation and will provide a compatible Atelier in the 2016.2 field test refresh which is scheduled for today Monday, 1st of Februrary.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience so caused.

I'm designing a workflow for PHR via FTP.  What I've done is create a single FTP adapter to pick up files from multiple customers.  A router then accesses a lookup table and determines if a particular customer is allowed to send a particular message type to the state.  If not, the message doesn't go out.  It seems like everyone is against this approach (other than my CEO, thankfully), including Intersystems:

Our recommendation though is to create separate interfaces to retrieve PHR data from individual
participants. This configuration ... gives us the ability to disable an individual data feed without affecting other other participants.

This seems like a terrible practice to me, but before explaining my reasons I wanted to see what everyone else thinks.

Hi, 

is it possible to integrate a csp file as the default page in the IIS 7?

I want reach http://localhost/csp/sys/UtilHome.csp over http://localhost/

 

Bill McCormick wrote in the GoogleGroup 

"There was a known problem with this in the 5.0 release and has been 
fixed. It will never work out of the box. You have to define a CSP 
application of the name "/" - the config manager used to invalidate this 
but putting it in the cpf worked - I forget if that is fixed or not. 
After that it should all just work. Feel free to log an issue with 
support if it still fails in anyway. "

 

But I didn´t understand this solution. 
I hope someone can help me.

 

Best regards 

Armin

I am pleased to announce the next in the series of 2016.2 field test kits, 2016.2.0.585.0.

In the two weeks since the last field test posting Development has made over a hundred fixes and improvements in Atelier, Enterprise Manager, Ensemble and Caché.

In Atelier alone there were over a dozen changes including a fix for the incompatibility issue that Jamie Newton described in his posting of February 1.

In Caché major areas of focus include:

  • SQL (ten changes),
  • ECP and mirroring (11 changes),
  • Objects and JSON (13 changes),
  • DeepSee (nine changes), and
  • Documentation (23 changes)

We also continue to focus on problems turned up by our developer community and so this kit contains the fix to WRC 854826, a problem dealing with REST processing of HTTP Accept headers

Hi!

Is there any simple way to query data about processed messages in all Ensemble productions?
What I ultimately would like to do is to periodically export that data to another system and run statistics on it.

I've been digging around in the SQL tables view and Ens.MessageHeader seems to contain most of what I'm after.
Using ODBC I could access that table view and query data, but only for one namespace per DSN it seems.

Can Ens.MessageHeader from different namespaces be mapped into a single namespace so that it can be accessed with ODBC?
Or is there a better way to access this data than to use the ODBC interface?


Thanks
Andreas

This is a nice introductory explanation of MQTT that I thought would be of general interest. The technology used for the broker in this case is not that important as there are several brokers available.

At global summit we will be demonstrating ways to use MQTT with Ensemble to get information from the Internet of Things into your enterprise applications and business processes,

In some project, I found the need to use SMIME format https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3851.txt, basically is an standard used to wrap a message together with its signature using a certificate (usually X509). Ensemble don't have a single class to do that but inside the Ensemble installation we have the openssl utility, so in this example I use the "openssl smime" command to sign or verify a message.

The example has two Business Process that able to sign or verify and in order to test I made a simple production.

Hope this helps

So calling this lookup manually from the console works as expected:

PHR>set key = "WMMC_IMM"
PHR>w ##class(Ens.Util.FunctionSet).Lookup("BlockFeed",key)
1

 

However, calling it from a method with some concatination to build the key is giving me problems

I'm working on some custom utility functions that I can utilize in Business Rules as well as other places.  I saw this line in the docs:

For each function you wish to define, add a class method to your new function set class. There is no support for polymorphism, so to be precise, you must mark these class methods as final.

 but I didn't really know what it meant.  I didn't run into any problems until I tried calling one of my new methods from another method.  Removing the [ Final ] fixed the issue, but I'm guessing that means I can't call them from Business Rules now?

Any clarification would be appreciated.  And just in case, here are the two methods in question

I have a routing rule that processes messages from multiple customers. I would like to create some sort of flag or setting that I can toggle to indicate if a given customer is allowed to pass messages through the router. Should I use a registry entry, lookup table or something else? Which can be accessed from a routing rule and how?

I have a service named FTP_In that is of class EnsLib.HL7.Service.FTPService.   It picks up files from multiple subfolders and sends them to an EnsLib.HL7.MsgRouter.RoutingEngine.   What I want to do is somehow capture the subfolder as a variable for use in the routing rules.  Is this possible?

Let's say I have the following files and directory structure on my FTP Server

/incoming/green/apple.dat
/incoming/yellow/banana.dat

I want the Routing Rule to be able to send anything that came from the /green/ folder to one operation and from /yellow/ to another.

Hi,

In an Ensemble message bus that has a Business Service which extends EnsLib.SOAP.Service, I have the option to support SOAP Sessions by setting the parameter SOAPSESSION=1.

The comments says this also effects license consumption.

In what way  is license consumption effected ?

note this is version 2015.1, Ensemble Elite (without Web-AddOn).

thanks - 

Steve
