Using the northgate-proiv-api.jar

15 November 2006 - 10:22 PM

Has anyone had any experience with the bus and task java api class northgate-proiv-api.jar supplied with concerto, when using it to perform bus and task calls to a pro-iv application?

Is this a class which duplicates the bus and task 'C' api, so that you can use it to write java applications that talk to a pro-iv installation?

Does it require a seperate Concerto licence, just to be able to use bus and task with pro-iv reliably?
(See this thread re the supplied dll's being non-thread-safe: http://www.proivrc.c...showtopic=3385)


Easy function comparison tool

27 October 2006 - 03:13 PM

Here's something I threw together, when I needed to do a comparison of two versions of a pro-iv function.
Its written in python (http://www.python.org) and generates a side-by-side comparison of any two files in a web browser.
Sorry its not in pro-iv, but its easier to use someone else's diff module than to code my own.

To use it, print out the function documentation with a windows client, and save to a text file (ie c:\temp\old.txt, c:\temp\new.txt)
Then run htmldiff.py c:\temp\old.txt c:\temp\new.txt, and it will generate a comparison file, and open a web browser.


max users on windows server

12 October 2006 - 01:34 PM

Can those of you out there using windows servers give me an idea of what the maximum user sessions that can be supported under windows might be, and what kind of server /server farm is used to support that?

We are looking into what would be required to support from 500 to 750+ user sessions, with a seperate mssql database server. We still use pro-isam lock files and odometer files, so pro-isam record locking needs to work as well.

Is anyone running this size of installation under windows?

(I've tried searching the forums, as I recall something like this posted once, but either I'm wrong or I just cant hit on the correct search terms)


@date not matching windows server date?

02 October 2006 - 06:28 PM

Has anyone had any issues with @DATA on a windows server not keeping in sync with the actual server's date after a time change?
This is with releasee 5.5 r302, on a windows server( dont have the version of the server) where the time changed due to daylight savings, but the time within pro-iv is unchanged.

I'm hoping that restarting the kernel will fix this, but am asking here out of skepticism.


mssql ignores rollbacks second time

18 April 2006 - 03:19 PM

We are porting our application to mssql, and have found another fine feature.

I found this while trying to find a way to force a rollback in mssql, which is something we use in oracle.

Update function
reads mssql file DC1REC, which has 1 record in it.
reads mssql file 2 ROLLBACK, with the following SQL statement in before read
reads mssql file 3 ARCF (customer file) before read set the key, and read no error umsg(ARCF_NAME)

The first time the function runs, I get the SQL error message, then get to the @RFUNCT rollback screen.
I F3 out of this, then run the function again.
I get the SQL error message, then my umsg with the customer's name :o

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there some sort of flag or something we need to reset when a rollback occurrs, or an environment setting that will make pro-iv treat ALL rollbacks as rollbacks?
