InterSystems IRIS is a Complete Data Platform InterSystems IRIS gives you everything you need to capture, share, understand, and act upon your organization’s most valuable asset – your data. As a complete platform, InterSystems IRIS eliminates the need to integrate multiple development technologies. Applications require less code, fewer system resources, and less maintenance.
The Data Platforms team is very pleased to announce the 2021.2 release of InterSystems IRIS Data Platform, InterSystems IRIS for Health and HealthShare Health Connect, which are now Generally Available (GA) to our customers and partners.
This article provides a reference architecture as a sample for providing robust performing and highly available applications based on InterSystems Technologies that are applicable to Caché, Ensemble, HealthShare, TrakCare, and associated embedded technologies such as DeepSee, iKnow, Zen and Zen Mojo.
Azure has two different deployment models for creating and working with resources: Azure Classic and Azure Resource Manager. The information detailed in this article is based on the Azure Resource Manager model (ARM).
Visual Studio Code (VSCode) is the most popular code editor on the market. It was created by Microsoft and distributed as a free IDE. VSCode supports dozens of programming languages, including ObjectScript, Until 2018, Atelier (based on Eclipse). It was considered as one of the main options to develop InterSystems products.
SSH framework is a relatively representative framework of Java, which was popular many years ago. There are Struts+Spring+hibernate and Spring MVC+Spring+hibernate. Of course, I used the second one in college. If I can connect IRIS to Hibernate as a library, does it also mean that IRIS can be developed using SSH framework in theory?
$LIST string format and %DynamicArray and %DynamicObject classes
IRIS, and previously Cache, contain several different ways to create a sequence containing a mixture of data values. A data sequence that has been available for many years is the $LIST string. Another more recent data sequence is the %DynamicArray class, which along with the %DynamicObject class, is part of the IRIS support for JSON string representation. These two sequences involve very different tradeoffs.
Standard error logs in IRIS / Caché / Ensemble are written global ^ERRORS. As this piece dates back some decades back to previous millennium its structure is far from the typical SQL storage structures.
I’m pleased to announce the 0.9 release of the ObjectScript extension for Visual Studio Code. Earlier this year I announced that InterSystems would be joining the community in evolving this already popular tool. Since then, we have been hard at work solidifying the code base and building a slew of new features.
Welcome to the very first Supported Platforms Update! We often get questions about recent and upcoming changes to the list of platforms and frameworks that are supported by the InterSystems IRIS data platform. This update aims to share recent changes as well as our best current knowledge on upcoming changes, but predicting the future is tricky business and this shouldn’t be considered a committed roadmap.
We’re planning to publish this kind of update approximately every 3 months and then re-evaluate in a year. If you find this update useful, let us know! We’d also appreciate suggestions for how to make it better.
Preview releases are now available for the 2020.4 version of InterSystems IRIS, IRIS for Health and IRIS Studio. As this is a preview release, we are eager to learn from your experiences with this new release ahead of its General Availability next month.
InterSystems is pleased to announce a new Developer Download site providing full kit versions of InterSystems IRIS Community Edition and InterSystems IRIS for Health Community Edition. These are available free of charge for application development use.
We are glad to announce that DBeaver has supported InterSystems IRIS out-of-the-box since version 7.2.4. You don't need to configure it manually anymore, just find the IRIS icon in the Connections list.
Recently, I migrated a series of Objectscript repositories from XML to UDL format.
After the migration, I was a bit disappointed by the presentation on the GitLab web interface.
Since Objectscript syntax is supported by GitHub, I thought It would be also supported by GitLab. Unfortunately, the library used by GitLab to highlight the code does not have an extension to support Objectscript.
In the first part, I've shown how to start a new project on Django, as well as define new models and add already existing models.
This time, I'll introduce an admin panel, available out of the box and how it can be useful.
Important note: do not expect that if you try to repeat actions from this post it will work for you, it does not. During the article, I had to do some fixes in the django-iris project, and even in DB-API driver made by InterSystems to fix some issues there as well, and I think this driver is still in development, and we will get more stable driver in future. Let's decide that this article only explains how it could be if we would have all done.
Every now and then you may encounter a situation where for various reasons ODBC is the only option to access a remote system. Which is sufficient as long as you need to examine or change tables. But you can't directly execute some commands or change some Global.
