HL7 and 4D

Has anyone use Mirth Connect with 4D?  The application can directly connect to common SQL databases:
PostGres, MS SQL, MySQL.  Wondering if it can connect to 4D before I invest a bunch of hours.

Thanks

Mitch

13.5 Mac Explorer super-annoying bug

It’s been awhile since I’ve done 4D exclusively on Mac - does anyone else have the problem where the
Explorer doesn’t recognize which type of object is selected? Like when you click on Methods and
double-click a method but 4D pops open the Form Properties dialog? Or you click on a form and you get a method?

This is driving me crazy.  13.5 and 13.5 HF2. Mac OS 10.9.5.

Stability of 13.5

Hi folks,

We have found that 4D server 13.5 crashes once a month in average. In
order to solve the issue, our customers need to quit and relaunch 4D
server. This *seems* resolve the issue.

The app was upgraded from v3 -> 6 -> ...... to v13. We can't even recall
any server crashes for yearssss of continuous uptime on 4D 2003 or v11.

The app is a simple client/server without activation of http server or SQL
server. I'm just wondering if anyone encounter such issue or just us. Or
it's not uncommon on earlier version of 13.5 and have been fixed in later
build? Currently, we are using build 167175.

Any comment would be greatly appreciated.

Alan Chan

P.S. please note that this is not a rant. We simply want to know if it's
not uncommon and later build might have solved the issue.

13.5 (175444) Windows, 4D Server, Source Code Serial Com failed

FYI:

This last week we updated a client from Windows, 4D Server, 12.5 to
13.5(nb175444). Nothing else changed with the configuration.

The application receives serial input on com ports: 3, 4, 5, and 6. It's
been working well for years.

The 13.5 application began showing periodic garbage in the input stream,
making the com port input unreliable.

The purpose of our upgrade was to get away from com port serial input and
use network IP input. We decided to go forward and use the network IP input
and it worked fine. So we did not look back at trying to solve the problem
with the serial com port input garbage.

Re: PDFCreator use by web server

A while back, I investigated all pdf "printers" I could find that used with 4D Server to generate pdf files
from 4D reports that could be attached to an email.

What I found after contacting the vendors was that none of them (except PDFCreator) would work with a 64bit
4D Server on Win.
We *had* to go with PDFCreator.

I has just assumed that it would use the print queue as "normal" printers do.
The current discussion about problems if there is more than 1 print job at the same time is quite alarming.
I am now worried that our system will fail under that circumstance.
Yikes!

Re: 64 bit plugins for 4D Cocoa

> I just wanted to share my plans for these projects.

for my understanding
-	32-bit plugins for 32-bit 4D
-	64-bit plugins for 64-bit 4D
or can they get mixed as of V14.3 for Mac OS X.10?

64 bit plugins for 4D Cocoa

Hello,

as those of you who follow the R release (maintenance) program,
or have attended the Summit last year would know,
the Mac 64-bit "preview" version of 4D Server is available since R3,
and reaching production status after every R iteration.

we also know that 4D itself will be available as a 64 bit cocoa app in the future.

http://doc.4d.com/4Dv14R4/4D-Server/14-R4/Using-4D-Server-64-bit-for-OS-X-preversion.300-1732738.en.html


with that in mind, I have created a project page to inform which of my free plugins are 64-bit ready for Mac.

https://github.com/miyako/4d-plugin-v14-architecture


the latest to join the list is the "curl" portion of what was previously published as "oauth".

I have decided to split the plugin, as some features such as JSON is becoming redundant in 4D.
it is not a bug fix per se, theres should be no need to replace it in a hurry.

I just wanted to share my plans for these projects.

SET QUERY DESTINATION sets OK?

I just noticed some odd behavior with OK when closing a dialog and tracked
it down to SET QUERY DESTINATION. It seems that this command sets the OK
system variable. (13.5, OS X.) I don't remember it ever doing so and the
docs make no mention of this behavior. I tried to get a list of the
commands that set OK in this version of 4D, but the
click-on-picture-for-a-list feature mentioned in the on-line docs doesn't
work. The image for the OK variable seems to be a static image without any
action.

Before wrapping SET QUERY DESTINATION and stashing/restoring OK on my own,
I thought I check in here for words of wisdom.

Thanks.

[RANT]v13 & Yosemite - Grrrr

This is v13.5 running on OSX 10.10.1 - mid 2014 Powerbook.

It seems something has changed - probably on the Apple side of the
equation. Until recently I'd get a random 4D crash every now and then. They
almost always had to do with the Dispatch Que on the Apple side and pretty
much any process on the 4D side could set it off.

In the last couple of weeks I'm noticing the crash rate has risen
dramatically. Now it's around 1 or 2 an hour and they are being set off my
more 4D processes. Sometimes crashing with any user action. My suspicion is
Apple pushed out some tweaks to the OS that have changed the balance.

I really hope we get a certified version of v13 for Yosemite soon.

This is good news!

I’ve worked with Jim for many years and he’s a quality individual. He deserves this promotion. It will
be good to him in a leadership position for 4D USA.

Congratulations Jim!

Mouse-over method

The application I’m working with has the automatic comments option turned on, so when I mouse over a
method it displays a modification history of the method instead of the first lines of the method.
Unfortunately, many of these are corrupted and display random garbage or a blank yellow tool tip that
covers the entire screen.

How do you tell 4D to display the first lines of a method on mouseover in the method editor?

I must be missing something obvious somewhere - I hope… :)
