JSON

I'm not sure how to actually interact with the result set I get from doing something like this.  I want to return something like:

[{"field1":1, "field2":2}, {"field1":2, "field2":10}]

I'm finding it very difficult to get it in this format, since %Print appends a newline onto the end of the {} object it prints.

Here's the closest I've gotten:

set query = "select JSON_OBJECT('field1': field1, 'field2":field2) from MyTable where x=? and y=?"

    set tStatement = ##class(%SQL.Statement).%New()
    set qStatus = tStatement.%Prepare(query)
    if qStatus'=1 {WRITE "%Prepare failed:" DO $System.Status.DisplayError(qStatus) QUIT

Hi Dev Community,

My team is currently working on a project where we need to post pdf documents to a 3rd party REST API.

The API specifies a field in the JSON request message to contain the 'physical content' of the file as an array of bytes, example of the JSON request as follows - data truncated for readability purposes:

{
    "CaptureSource":2,
    "RecipientID":"ID34",
    "Document": {
        "Guid":"5D847A4E9CC1485382DC4A5F5DC80D6C",
        "EventDate":"2019-01-14T13:23:46",
        "FileExtension":"pdf",
        "FileContent":"JVBERi0xLjQNCiXi48/TDQoxIDAgb2JqDQogIDw8DQogICA......"

      },
    "ActionRequired":false,

Hi All

It's been 6 weeks since my original article sad
- - - - -but I have been busy on this project smiley

I have been looking at/thinking about a replacement for ZEN for around 12 months but only really started in depth 4 months ago.
Also been in IT for long enough that I can "get a feel" for a product/technology and make decisions accordingly without going into great detail. 
Any new technology has a learning curve and I don't want to waste time and effort on something that won't fly. 
And, as always, I am looking to minimise the learning curve as I want to concentrate on delivering business benefit.

Hi All

I this article I detail some strategic issues that a new development UI will need to address - these are the ones that I can think of now - others may come to light during this journey.

See the webinar by Eduard Lebedyuk here from the last Global Summit describing  modern web development and Caché

And, as always, if I have missed something please comment....

Hi All
This is the index to a series of articles I hope to create over the coming months.

ZEN and ZEN Mojo are no longer being actively developed by Intesystems - this is a great shame as it is a fine product that works so well for business applications.
However ZEN is a 15 year old product and I need a path forward to replace the ZEN UI with a supported development framework.

This article is an index of the other articles I have, or plan to write. - the articles will be subject to change as I develop my thoughts and climb the learning curve.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

is there any indication that the .NET object representation of Cache objects (i.e. InterSystems.Data.CacheClient.dll) complies with .NET Standard? I'm planning to extend our existing .NET client/server solution with a mobile option by Xamarin Forms and can't find any significant hints in the internet.

I'm just fooling around a bit and made some expreiments with a REST API and a generic object-to-JSON tier

Hello folks,

I have an JSON object that need to be updated before being parsed into a JSX component.

Source JSON obj:

var Obj = { "data": [
  {"id":1, "text":"Task #1", "project":"10", "sub_project":"10-1" },
  {"id":2, "text":"Task #2", "project":"10", "sub_project":"10-1" },
  {"id":3, "text":"Task #3", "project":"11", "sub_project":"11-1" },
]};

 

Required JSON obj result:

var Obj = { "data": [

  {"id":10, "text":"Project 10" },
  {"id":11, "text":"Project 11" },

  {"id":10-1, "text":"Sub Project 10-1", "project":"10" },
  {"id":11-1, "text":"Sub Project 11-1", "project":"11" },

  {"id":1, "text":"Task #1", "project":"10", "sub_project":"10-1" },
  {"id":2, "text":"Task #2", "project":"10", "sub_project":"10-1" },
  {"id":3, "text":"Task #3", "project":"11", "sub_project":"11-1" },

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

Hi All,

I am trying to get JSON data from a REST api.  I am using my web browser to get the data by hitting the URL.

The data is receiving properly, but the JSON contains a few HTML tags.

These tags are not not receiving in the browser while hitting the url. Is there any way to overcome this issue ?

Thanks,

Hello.

I just noticed that whenever I parse a JSON using %FromJSON, it always return the property values as primary data types, including long strings.

I did a quick stress test to measure it's capabilities and found out that characteristic,  this is something I needed to figure out beforehand  to implement my REST lib.

What I concluded is that %Dynamic depends solely on volatile storage? What if the user doesn't have long string support enabled or if the server has not enough memory to handle long strings?

Is there a fallback for handling it?

Please note that is an extreme and unusual use case, specially the last one, but I wanted to figure how to handle it accordingly.

This post is intended to guide you through the new JSON capabilities that we introduced in Caché 2016.1. JSON has emerged to a serialization format used in many places. The web started it, but nowadays it is utilized everywhere. We've got plenty to cover, so let's get started.

I created the Process to extract the required data from ADT message to a Dynamic Object. I wanted to send the JSON stream to EnsLib.File.PassthroughOperation operation and generate a file with the content of JSON stream.

Here are the codes for Process:

set oMetadata = ... /// metadata is from ADT message which is dynamic object

set jsonRequest = ##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonProvider).%ObjectToJSON(oMetadata)
set tSC = ..SendRequestAsync(..JSONOperation,jsonRequest,0,,..MetadataContext)  /// send the jsonRequest to operation

Here are the errors in the operation: "ERROR <Ens>ErrGeneral: No MessageBody classname for MessageHeader

There are several options how to deliver user interface(UI) for DeepSee BI solutions. The most common approaches are:

  • use native DeepSee Dashboards, get web UI in Zen and deliver it in your web apps.

  • use DeepSee REST API, get and build your own UI widgets and dashboards.

The 1st approach is good because of the possibility to build BI dashboards without coding relatively fast, but you are limited with preset widgets library which is expandable but with a lot of development efforts.

The 2nd provides you the way to use any comprehensive js framework (D3, Highcharts, etc) to visualize your DeepSee data, but you need to code widgets and dashboards on your own.

Today I want to tell you about yet another approach which combines both listed above and provides Angular based web UI for DeepSee Dashboards -  DeepSee Web library.

Developing a Full-Stack JavaScript web app with Caché requires you to bring together the right building blocks. In the previous part, we created a basic front-end React application. In the second part of this article series I will show how to choose the right back-end technology for your application. You will see Caché allows you to use many different approaches to link your front-end to your Caché server, depending on your application's needs. In this part we will set up a back-end with Node.js/QEWD and CSP/REST. In the next part we will enhance our basic web app and connect it to Caché using these technologies.

So, one day you're working away at WidgetsDirect, the leading supplier of widget and widget accessories, when your boss asks you to develop the new customer facing portal to allow the client base to access the next generation of Widgets..... and he wants you to use Angular 1.x to read into the department's Caché server.   

There's only one problem:  You've never used Angular, and don't know how to make it talk to Caché.

This guide is going to walk through the process of setting up a full Angular stack which communicates with a Caché backend using JSON over REST.  


This is a parent page for the multipart series on creating a Material-Angular1x-REST-JSON-Caché application.  The current list of articles is

Hi all,

I have an incoming JSON message with a string field exceeding in length the 'caché long-string limit' of 3641144 characters.

Using {}.%FromJSON(instream) I am able to create %DynamicObject properly. However, I am unable to access the long property, as in every assignment, I get the <MAXSTRING> error.

Is there any way for me to obtain contents of the 'too long' string field as a stream?

Thanks

Jiri

When using the JSON_OBJECT() function in Caché SQL on a %String property that contains JSON syntax, it converts the %String into a JSON object instead of escaping it as a string literal. How can I prevent this? (without ridiculous hacks like "add a space to the beginning of the value" as we don't always know which properties will contain these values and I certainly don't want to have to check for nulls and add/remove a space every single place this value is used in the application)

I don't want these strings automatically marshalled into JSON objects.

For example:

SELECT ID, JSON_OBJECT('ID': ID, 'Name':, LastName || ', ' || FirstName, 'Options': Options) as Item FROM Whatever.Whatever

Should give me:

1, '{"ID":1,"Name":"Smith, John","Options":"{\"Color\":\"Blue\",\"Count\":20}"}'

And instead is giving me the marshalled version:

1, '{"ID":1,"Name":"Smith, John","Options":{"Color":"Blue","Count":20}}

I am trying to use the automated unittest class for a %CSP.Rest service.

So my Unittest code set's %request and %response from %CSP.Req/resp respectively

I build a tProxy with the fields I need for the post and set it %ToJson... I have tried seting %request.Content = tProxy (and not)

 

I call the method for the post url directly... 

  When that method calls %fromJson to set an object with the info. I passed... 

      - when I don't set %request.content.. I get a error '5035 - premature end of data code 12'

      - when I set %request.content=tProxy.. I get an errror Method Does not exist 

Any tips on what may be going on?

Full-Stack JavaScript development allows you to create state-of-the-art applications with Caché. With any (web) app you build nowadays, one has to make a lot of architectural decisions and you want to make the right ones. With the Node.js connector available for Caché, you can create a very powerful server side application server, allowing you to use the latest JavaScript technology and frameworks client- and server-side.

With all these new technologies, the most important is to integrate them in the most efficient way and to create a very productive development experience. This article willl get you started step-by-step with Node.js technology.

Recently, a partner company started to develop an Angular client for their Cache application. Together, we decided to leverage the power of Caché dynamic objects to exchange JSON encoded data between client and server parts. However, we realized that currently there is a gap in Cache JSON implementation that prevents simple use of traditional registered and persistent classes to exposed their data with the same ease as with XML. I wrote a small JSON adapter, that does the job and bridgers the gap. It's purpose is simple expose data described by a regular Cache class in a one-to-one fashion to a %DynamicObject. On the other hand, when a serialized JSON data comes in, it can be easily deserialized into dynamic object and subsequently bound to regular class by the newly created adapter.

Hello everyone,

i already asked this question in another post (https://community.intersystems.com/post/how-can-i-import-my-json-formatt...) and i'm sorry for creating a new post but i still didn't get an answer so i try it again. Now i know how to import my JSON formatted data from my API to my DocDB but now i have the problem that my JSON formatted data from my API is imported only to the %Doc  column and not to the columns that i created with my properties.  I'm not really sure but i think that the document database only puts my information from my API to the right columns if my JSON is in a JSONArrray format. But the format of my API is JSONObject and looks like this
