We at George James Software are pleased to announce that our acclaimed code debugger and editor Serenji is now available as a Visual Studio Code extension.

As well as supporting the latest InterSystems IRIS platform Serenji also works with earlier platforms, including versions lacking the server-side Atelier API support required by other VS Code extensions.

Serenji connects you directly to the code in your namespaces, resulting in an experience more familiar to existing Studio users. No need to export and import classes and routines.

We believe Serenji is the first extension to bring VS Code's powerful debugging features to ObjectScript developers.

At the George James Software booth at Global Summit last year we took the wraps off the work we've been doing to make our popular editing and debugging tool Serenji available on the Visual Studio Code platform.

Rather than requiring you to pull code from your namespaces into local files, then push the changes back to the namespace to run it, you work directly in the namespace. In other words, the editing experience is like Studio rather than like Atelier.

As well as editing code you can also debug it directly from VSCode.

Using our cool new debugging extension for Visual Studio Code I'm trying to debug a CreateProjection method of a class, but when I compile it the work apparently gets done in one of the worker jobs, so my breakpoint never triggers.

Is there a compiler flag or qualifier to force the compilation to be done in-process rather than getting handed off to a worker job?

Documentation here lists the kinds of members a class definition may contain. In summary:

  • Parameters
  • Methods
  • Properties
  • Class queries
  • XData blocks
  • Projections
  • (and some that are relevant only for persistent classes):
    • Storage definitions
    • Indices
    • Foreign keys
    • SQL triggers

Later in the same document, a section headed "Class Member Names" contains this warning:

When defining a server connection in Atelier we are required to enter a username and password because these are mandatory fields in the dialog. However, if the /api/atelier web application definition on that server has only the "Unauthenticated" checkbox set in the section titled "Allowed Authentication Methods", then our Atelier connection will succeed even if we supply an invalid username and/or password.

In part of this post in 2016 @Eduard Lebedyuk asked if anyone knew what is meant by an "expanded class", as referred to in the text that appears when we run the ShowQualifiers classmethod of %SYSTEM.OBJ thus:

SAMPLES>DO $system.OBJ.ShowQualifiers()
...
            Name: /checkuptodate
    Description: Skip classes or expanded classes that are up-to-date.
