I'm pleased to announce the release of version 1.4.4 of the VS Code extension, which contains the following enhancements and bug fixes. Links will take you to the GitHub issue being addressed. As always, if you already have the extension installed, VS Code should automatically update your extension. If you're a new user, use these instructions to get started.

This example demonstrates the difference you may experience when you write to
Gllobals directly from Embedded Python compared to native ObjectScript.

To make this demo useful I start 2 background jobs that simply write sequentially
to a dedicated global. A common control method signals for a synchronous start.
Similar a common stop & view interrupts data feeding.

That's the principle process:

Time travel is like visiting Paris. You can't just read the guide, you have to throw yourself into it. Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get double the charges, and end up kissing complete strangers.

The Doctor

We are now going to travel through time, that is, we are going to see future and past dates and how to calculate them in different formats. The TARDIS doesn't wait, take the controls and hold on tight.

I have a SQL query that I want to run against MS SQL from cache ensemble using the SQL outbound adapter. If I run this query direct from MS SQL Studio it take about 7 seconds MAX and returns about half a million rows. The row only contains one column it is a number all same size and if I run this query in the production in ensemble it takes for ever the production finishes without getting the response back. The same query run in cache outside the ensemble environment writing results to a file it returns results taking about 3minutes to complete.

Hi all,

I am trying to use a %Status property on some of my Response classes. If the execution of a service goes wrong, I set the %Status property on Response with the value $$$ERROR($$$GeneralError, "pre-defined error message").

When I check the visual trace for this message and look for the %Status (property "status_code" on the image), it is displayed like this:

If I select to display the Body of the Response, I get the 'readable' form of %Status:

Hello fellows, I need you wisdom.

In my organization we code in ObjectScript and .int everyday. When I joined nobody knew barely nothing about classes and their use was almost only for storage definition purpose. During my self-learning in caché I discovered the object oriented programming and class developing was possible in caché and started to code in .cls . Being something self-taught, I may have some basic doubts I'd have missed in my documentation readings.

Is there a straightforward workflow in VS Code for moving a class from one namespace to another on the same server? With Caché/IRIS Studio, it was a (sort of) simple export/change namespace in file menu/import operation. But in VS Code it's not obvious (to me, at least).

I can add multiple namespaces to a workspace, but when using isfs:// paths I see only a "Download" option and no "Upload" or "Import/Compile." When I'm navigating the local file tree, I see Import options, but no way to select the namespace into which I want to import.

Hi Folks,

I created a persistent class as below

Class myclass.DataBase Extends %Persistent

Property ID As %String;

Property Skill As list Of myclass.SerialTablelist;

and Created another Serial class as

Class myclass.SerialTablelist Extends %SerialObject

Property PSkill As %String;

Property OSkill As %String;

Now I will save the id as below

do rs.Prepare("Insert into myclass.DataBase(ID)VALUES(?)")
do rs.Execute(ID)

Hi all - we just released the first episode of Season 2 for our Data Points podcast by Learning Services. This episode features a conversation with @Bob Kuszewski about Embedded Python. If you're a Python developer, or if you're simply interested in the functionality, check it out! For more information, head over to https://datapoints.intersystems.com.

I'm trying to write a method that runs an OS command with $zf(-100,"/ASYNC") and then waits for it to finish before returning, but I can't figure out how to check if the child process (in $zchild) is still running. $System.Process.State($zchild) always returns "RUN" even once the child process is gone. Is there some better way to check this, short of running another OS-specific command and processing the output (which is just really annoying and unelegant)?

I am using VSCode together with IRIS 2021.1.
When using Shift+Alt+F to reformat a class file, it pops up with the below message. When I select install formatter, it routes me to the extensions page, where it shows the extensions as being installed. Any advice will be appreciated.

For some years I missed being able to offer, to everybody interested in ObjectScript, a tutorial more or less complete, to start with ObjectScript. Something that could help more and make things easier to those new developers that come to our technology... something intermediate, halfway between the common "Hello World!", that doesn't really get you further, and the "Advanced Training", that is unaffordable because of lack of time,etc.

If there were something truly helpful not only as an introduction to the ecosystem, but as a starting point, as a boost, to really start to walk into ObjectScript and move forward by yourself... wouldn't that be awesome?
