    Best practice for refactoring functions in OO?

    Hi all, I'm still new to all things OO and am looking for some guidance. I'm working on a little side project and have a working POC implemented in procedural code. Now I am trying to refactor it using classes and I'm a bit stuck on one thing. In my current code I have some helper functions...

    Question Using :U with character strings

    For some years now our developers have been in the habit of appending ":U" to the end of certain character strings in code. E.g.: if foo = "bar":U then run baz.p The docs say this makes the string untranslatable by OpenEdge Translation Manager. We don't use this product and, to my...

    ProgressNEXT 2019

    ProgressNEXT 2019 Global User Conference Is anyone here attending? I've looked over the agenda and... meh. Heavy on buzzwords and futuristic stuff, short on content that is in my wheelhouse. Like none. I realize the agenda isn't finalized yet but so far there is exactly zero content on OE...

    Question Batch CHUI client and -debugalert

    I am adding -debugalert to the startup params of a CHUI batch reporting client as we're trying to track down the source of an intermittent error 12371. This will give me the call stack in the client log. I typically don't use -debugalert, except temporarily when I'm trying to investigate a...

    Question Index entries in the lock table?

    I'm investigating an issue with excessive locks while running Update Statistics, which I posted about here. (BTW it looks like an issue in 11.6.0 that was fixed in or before 11.6.3; a case is open with TS.) This thread isn't about Update Statistics specifically; bear with me. :) I was able to...

    Lock table overflow during Update Statistics

    I'm preparing to run Update Statistics in a client's prod environment (AIX 7.1, OE 11.6.0). First I ran it in a test DB on a different system (SLES 11.1, OE 11.6.3) and didn't have any errors. The test DB was created via D&L, not prorest. This is the code I run to create a SQL script: /*...

    Question Profiling an AppServer

    Windows Server 2012 OE 11.6.3 32-bit I have an appserver that publishes a web service. I'm connected to the WSA with SoapUI to fire through a message. I'm trying to profile the code running in the appserver but I'm not getting any output. I feel like I'm missing something obvious; I'd...

    Question Field Order In Export Output

    Quick question: the order of fields in an EXPORT statement: is it _field-rpos? Or _field-physpos? I look at this once in a long while and I can never seem to remember.

    Comment Finding Inactive Indexes

    Just passing along a couple of things I learned recently. When you add an index online for an existing table with the "add new objects on-line" option, it will appear to be active but it won't actually be available until it is activated with proutil idxactivate or idxbuild. Until it is...

    Question Kernel Tuning For Aix

    Hi all, A client of mine is experiencing some read performance issues and so is revisiting everything about their system configuration. Production DBs are 180 GB and 90 GB. -B is 50 GB and 19 GB respectively. They are on AIX 7.1, OE 11.6.1. Structure is good, Type II areas. In short...

    Comment Thoughts On Caching...

    I have an idea for a possible DB enhancement that's been rattling around in my head for a bit. I thought I'd write it here, as it was inspired by an idea from Tom Bascom, to solicit feedback from Tom and others. Also, writing it down forces me to organize my thoughts, so if it does have merit...

    Question Failover Clusters

    I've had an inquiry from a client about Failover Clusters. Looking for input from anyone who has hands-on experience with it. The client is on AIX 7.1 and would likely be deploying with a mid-11.x release. They use TDE today and would also likely implement OE Repl Plus at the same time.
