Release

Syndicate content 3 

InterSystems is delighted to announce the support of Docker container technology as a platform from the moment 2016.1 will be released.


Docker is a disruptive system technology that has many benefits and offers many advantages for those investing in infrastructure-as-code or immutable-infrastructure provisioning & deployment scenarios.
Like any new technology that appears, there is a learning curve, and many considerations need to occur when using it. However, Docker container technology has already proven to be successful by a huge follow-up with many companies already using it in production. Furthermore & FYI, all public cloud providers already support it.


InterSystems validates and supports its technologies on Docker container engine from v1.8 and above with CentOS, Ubuntu, RedHat and SUSE based containers from the official Docker Hub repository or their respective projects and sites.

Have fun with it

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.

I'm pleased to see this in the documentation of the just-published 2017.1 Field Test of Ensemble:

"In certain circumstances, it is useful to create namespaces that are not enabled for Ensemble. In this release you can do this by clearing the Make this an Ensemble namespace checkbox when creating a new namespace. "

It's been 6 months since InterSystems released Atelier 1.0 and we continue to roll out enhancements and new features through the beta channel (please see the Atelier Download page for details). In the meantime, we have received a lot of messages from the Developer Community with ideas for further improvements. Based on your feedback, we created a roadmap for Atelier 1.1 so you can conveniently track when specific features are going to be integrated.

Below is a list of the major improvements planned for 1.1, which we are expecting to demo at the Global Summit.

1. Legacy File Support – You will no longer have to convert XML files to UDL, though conversion is still recommended.

2. Performance Improvements – Tasks that were slow in Atelier 1.0, such as copying files to a project, will show significant improvements

The Cogs.JsonClass library is now available in the Cogs project on GitHub.

https://github.com/SeanConnelly/Cogs

Please see the README and the /docs folder on how to use the class.

Overview

The Cogs.JsonClass class provides a one step serialisation and deserialisation to and from Caché registered and persistent classes. It is not dependent on any other code and should be compatible with older versions of Caché.

The unit tests have been included in the update, but until I release the dependent Touchstone unit test solution it won't be possible to run these tests.

Please report any issues on the GitHub issues log.

I will post some benchmarks later in the week.

Sean.

It's almost a year since I have published a series of articles explaining how to configure Cache instance as a client / resource server / authorization server. By that time, the implementation of OAuth 2.0 was still a pre-release software.

With the advent of Cache version 2017.1 a lot has changed. OAuth 2.0 implementation is fully completed and supported. Numerous new features were added (e.g. dynamic client registration)  - see release notes here for full details - and configuration pages have been redesigned to a great extent as well

Those of you who keep an eye on developments in the mainstream of IT will be aware that a major upheaval has been occurring over the last 5 or so years, in which JavaScript has exploded in popularity and importance.  Largely as a result of its server-side incarnation - Node.js - it has broken free of just being the scripting language that you use in web browser, to becoming the world's most popular language and enterprise technology of choice

November 22, 2016 – Alert: Database Integrity on UNIX® and Linux Platforms

InterSystems has corrected a defect that may, in rare circumstances, result in database degradation on UNIX and Linux platforms.

This defect affects Caché, Ensemble, and HealthShare distributions beginning with Caché version 2012.1. It is only a possible risk on UNIX and Linux platforms that are using asynchronous I/O for database writes. The following table specifies if asynchronous I/O is always on or optional for the affected platforms and releases:

Platform

Versions 2012.1 to 2015.1

Version 2015.2 and later

Caché process failures on RHEL V7.2

InterSystems WRC has investigated several issues of process failure that can be attributed to a recent change in Red Hat Linux.

A new feature implemented in RHEL V7.2 (systemd-219-19.el7.x86_64) can cause O.S. IPC (Inter-process communication) semaphores to be deallocated when a non-system RHEL user logs out (system users, i.e. with a UID number < 1000, are excluded)

Internally, Caché makes use of IPC semaphores to control the operation of Caché processes (for example when trying to wake-up a Caché process). It does this by using the “semop” system service and if the operating system unexpectedly removes semaphores that Caché relies upon for IPC, then processes can fail. If this occurs the following evidence will be found in the cconsole.log:

“System error while trying to wake-up a process, code = 22€

Question:

What version of Caché supports TLS v1.2? 

Answer:

Caché 2015.2 announced support for TLS v1.1 and v1.2.  In this version, the SSL/TLS configuration page provides checkboxes for TLS v1.1 and v1.2, which allows the versions to be configured individually.  This allows sites to, for example, require TLS v1.2 only.

Additionally, some earlier versions of Caché provide undocumented support for TLS v1.1 and v1.2, specifically Caché 2014.1.3 and above and 2015.1, on Windows, Linux and Unix

In this release we added new functionality that marks postings with either a "new" icon or an "unread" icon depending on when you came to the site last and the age of the postings.

Here are the rules as currently implemented:

- If a user hasn't viewed content which was posted less than 2 weeks ago, then the label "new" is displayed.

- If the user hasn't viewed content which was posted more than 2 weeks ago then the label "unread" is display.
