[U2] New XLr8 Tools release 4.0.22 [ad]

2014-05-20 Thread Doug Averch
Since our last announcement which was several months ago, we at U2logic
have been busy updating our XLr8 Tools.  We have just added UV command to
the Control-Space option.  That means those of us that don't know the
syntax of a command can find while in Eclipse and do not have to consult
the documentation.  VPN's we giving us a lot grief.  We have worked out
those pesky network interfaces while our users are using XLr8 tools in a
VPN environment.  XLr8 Tools work with Unidata and Universe databases only
running in the Eclipse IDE.  Check out our web site for more information at
www.u2logic.com.

v4.0.22 - May 20, 2014
  Add UV documentation commands to Control-Space option.

v4.0.21 - May 9, 2014
  Bugzilla [659] - XLr8Editor Label Sorting by Placement

v4.0.20 - April 12, 2014
  Change licensing use java libs instead of the OS calls.
  Added code to look at at network interfaces especially when using a VPN.

v4.0.19 - April 05, 2014
  XLr8Resizer had a divide by zero error on the custom calculation option.
  Bugzilla [654] - XLr8Editor hangs on looking up key words
  Bugzilla [655] - XLr8Dictionary editor does not allow editing of
non-dictionary data
  Bugzilla [657] - XLr8Editor generates a JNP error for unknown reason

v4.0.18 - March 24, 2014
  XLr8Resizer had un-initialized variable on Unidata when gathering
statistics on the custom option

v4.0.17 - March 12, 2014

Re: [U2] Rgarding ED editor

2014-04-17 Thread Doug Averch
If you are trying to use ED or AE in Universe or Unidata these are line by
line editors.   If someone is new to U2 then this is a bad move to try and
teach them something so archaic.

Move into the modern ages using Eclipse IDE from either Rocket Software or
U2logic.  Rocket Software offering is called BDT.  U2logic's offering is
called XLr8Editor.  The both have many more positives than negatives.  If
you have used something like Visual Studio or similar tools then your
learning curve will be quite small.

 Hi Shanmukh,

 Do you really mean ED?

 The ED command in Unidata starts the underlying operating system editor.
 By default, this is vi on Linux and the MS-DOS editor on
 Windows. So, to answer your question, we need to know which system your
 are on.

 I have encountered many users who amend their VOC so that ED actually runs
 the AE editor which is part of Unidata itself.

Re: [U2] Rgarding ED editor

2014-04-17 Thread Doug Averch
I've been doing Eclipse IDE a lot longer than everybody else.  I'm not
bragging here: U2logic was the first with an editor that ran within Eclipse
IDE for Universe and Unidata in 2004.

I would have to save that I have updated many VOC items from XLr8Editor
Eclipse.  But that is not really point I have made in all of these years
trying to explain this technology.  If the U2 database environment is to
survive and grow, all of us programmers have to look like other programmers
in the world.  Very few of us should be using line by line editors for any
reason.

I firmly believe that the ED/AE should be removed from the database not
because the tools are not useful, but because it detracts from what can be
accomplished within the U2 environment.  When I'm at a client, or doing a
web demo, I have Eclipse running with code showing to showcase that U2 is
not a legacy technology.

When I'm coding and somebody who does not know U2 they can see these to
name few things:

   1. the code compiling on the spot
   2. built-in version control
   3. copy and paste capability
   4. dictionary editing in a grid
   5. an outline with all the variables and their respective line numbers
   6. code completion on my code variables
   7. a local search engine to look for U2 variables or subroutines
   8. a local search for just strings using regular expressions
   9. The ability to have multiple sessions open and manage those sessions
   10. The ability to sync your local storage with the database with a
   single click

Those people have a better feeling about the technology they purchase then
seeing some typing OOPS or C/oldvariable/newvarable/g.

 Doug,

 I totally disagree!  Yes, once you get used to a GUI editor, ED/AE can be
 tough, but it has it's merits too.

 One, it's quick - it's ALWAYS available.

 Would you honestly invoke a GUI editor to make a quick change to a VOC
 entry?

 It's a tool of the trade - it needs to be a required learn

combined our announcement into a single one each month.  Only XLr8 tools
continually updates it products several times a month in our U2 world.

U2logic's is an application creator so we use our tool on average about 8
hours a day so we really do know what the tool need to do and how the
perform.  Try it yourself, we do have trial licenses.

Here is our change log:

v4.0.14 - March 6, 2014
  Bugzilla [647] - Project Explorer display is not correct for LD and LF
files on dictionaries
  Bugzilla [646] - XLr8Editor does allow direct access from version control

Re: [U2] Multi-threaded phantom processing

2014-03-05 Thread Doug Averch
Instead of phantoms we us a different approach.

Our middle-ware built on Apache Tomcat and UniObjects for Java replicates
data from Universe to Universe or Unidata to Unidata.  Using the built in
routines in UOJ we are able to handle over 10,000 to 20,000 transactions
per day.  This technology uses a DataSet or a select list of data from a
single file in a single operation.  Then you write the DataSet to the other
machine.

 Thanks David. As they say Bigger than Ben-Hur!

 That's a great idea. The server I have is listening on a predetermined
 port. I trolled through /etc/services and a netstat on the remote host to
 select something that looked unused.

 So then if it the main phantom spawns 1-n children (presumably more
 phantoms?), it would also need to select 1-n ports which I suppose must
 also be predetermined? Or is there a call to the OS that can return an
 unused port? We're on AIX but the remote host is HPUX.

[U2] Unidata Index Failure

2014-02-26 Thread Doug Averch
We have be experiencing a Unidata index failure above 7.3.2 on Windows
2008/2012.  When we go back to 7.3.2 the problem goes away.  The problem is
sometimes the index does not get built for certain items.  If we save the
records or rebuild the index it goes away for a few days to a weeks until
one or two items show up not in the index.  Our customers report a software
failure which takes us hours determine that no application software is the
cause and we rebuild the indexes on the file in question.

We have been working with Rocket Software for about 6 months on this
problem.  Rocket is reporting to me that no one has reported this issue to
them.  We thought we ask anyone on the list if they have seen any problem
that is similar where they have solved the problem by rebuilding the
indexes.

Just a heads up for those interesting in more granularity in a search.  We

BFIND are your really serious.  Is this one of those, we must us only use
UniBasic code?  Because if it is, we U2 programmers are really dinosaurs
not knowing the comet already has changed the world.

We have been using Eclipse since 2004.  The search engine is so fast and
will search my local machine, not the database, in seconds.  The Eclipse
search engine shows not only the program but the entire line that matches.
You can click on the line in the search window and the editor start up and
loads the program focusing on the line in question.

Gee, you should wonder how Eclipse compares to a single telnet window
driven program written UniBasic?

 First off - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

 I'm starting to write a lot of new BASIC (Universe 11.1) subroutines for
 our
 DesignBais application, and since I'll be starting with a blank code
 template instead of modifying existing code, and I thought 'hey why not
 join
 the 21st century' and make the code look more mainstream, and readable.
 (falling back on our last TEXMUG presentation by Clif Oliver on
 refactoring).

 And considering Universe 11.2 now supports local subroutines and functions,
 I should make the code look and behave more object-like.

 Does anyone know of a set of rules or guidelines on how to do this?Just
 experimenting briefly, Universe BASIC compiler will allow any mix of cases
 for keywords, but variables are case sensitive.  Example:

 ED BP TEST
 ABC=1
 Abc=2
 abc=3
 PRINT ABC
 Print Abc
 pRiNt abc
 stop
 end

 RUN TEST
 1
 2
 3

 So, how are developers mixed case in their code these day? Do keywords,
 local variables, common variable, equates follow a standard method?

Re: [U2] Unidata index/query ?

2013-12-06 Thread Doug Averch
Hi David:

In Unidata indexes DO mean faster selects.  I have file with millions
of records with about 14 indexes and most every select on the index
comes back in under a second.   Our disks are 90,000 IO's per second
with a 16GB main memory, without indexes to select and read through
that data takes 5 to 10 minutes minimum.

I have an open ticket with Rocket Software about indexes failing after
7.3.2. I had a similar problem and reduced my version from 7.3.4 to
7.3.2.

 If you are always wanting a combined index lookup on those two values you
 can create an I-Descriptor that combines them and index the I-Descriptor.
 Then use the I-Descriptor in your select statements.

 Remember using an Index doesn't always mean faster selects.  If your index

 and the disk reads will be all over the file.  Whereas without the index you
 are reading the file going through it by groups and it will minimize the

[U2] Unidata error for the ages, so to speak.

2013-12-05 Thread Doug Averch
I was playing with EVAL trying to see why it would work in Universe
and not in Unidata.  I typed in this sentence in Unidata 7.3.6:

list CRM.CUSTOMERS WITH EVAL UPCASE(@RECORD15) LIKE BILL...

UPCASE(@RECORD15)
-^
Virtual Attribute Error: qz1zq syntax error

So what is qz1zq syntax error?  Who would of thought this would help a
seasoned professional like myself figure our my syntax error.  I guess
I really don't understand this database after many many years...

The correct syntax was :
list CRM.CUSTOMERS WITH EVAL UPCASE(CONTACT.NAME) LIKE 'BILL...'

[U2] XLr8Editor Release 4.0.3 [ad]

2013-12-03 Thread Doug Averch
Our current release is 4.0.3. By the way this software has some code for
Universe 11.2 new UniBasic features.

This release is significant in that we have changed the licensing scheme to
a single entry from for all keys.  If you upgrade you will need a new
license key.  When you upgrade send us your new installation id and we will
send you a new key as quick as we can.

We always felt the the Eclipse search engine was not adequate for UniBasic.
 We have create our own search tab for UniBasic and dictionaries.  You can
search for functions, external subroutines, internal subroutines, and
variables. This search engine uses our UniBasic indexer information that is
captured when you start up Eclipse the routine is very fast.

Here is our change log:

v4.0.3 - December 02, 2013
  Updated XLr8 item list spinner from 1000 to 5000.
  Bugzilla [429] - XLr8 Search Option for UniBasic code - part 1.

v4.0.2 - November 24, 2013
  Updated documentation
  Bugzilla [622] - XLr8Object Editor translator kicks off a message
occasionally

v4.0.1 - November 16, 2013
  Bugzilla [606] - XLr8Licenser old licensing code needs to be removed
  Bugzilla [426] - XLr8Object Editor will be multi-language is completed

v3.10.3 - November 14, 2013

[U2] U2logic updates its XLr8 Tools for Universe and Unidata [ad]

2013-11-15 Thread Doug Averch
It been a while since we have posted our updates because we thought we were
a little too verbose.  But we are back again after two months.

We have been very busy as always at U2logic improving our XLr8 products.
 We have had about 15 updates in that time.  Compare this with any other U2
products out in the wild web and you will find we are the leader in
continuous improvement.

For example, our XLr8 Commander allows us to not have telnet window open to
do LIST/SELECT commands.  We can create a stack save locally on our
workstation and call it up hours or days later to do the same thing.
 Almost any command or program can be run from our commander making it an
invaluable tool for any Universe or Unidata programmer while they are using
any of our tools.

Here is our change log for the past three months.

v3.10.3 - November 14, 2013
  Bugzilla [426] - XLr8Object Editor will be multi-language part 2.

v3.10.2 - November 7, 2013
  Added missing preference for XLr8Object Editor
  Changed wording on XLr8Commander and removed unused icons.

v3.10.1 - November 6, 2013
  Bugzilla [549] - XLr8Object Editor will not come up from the Eclipse
search function
  Bugzilla [426] - XLr8Object Editor will be multi-language part 1.

v3.10.0 - October 31, 2013
  Added preference for U2 commands to timeout more than standard for UOJ.
  Updated combined licensing routine
  Updated XLr8Commander menu items

v3.9.20 - v3.9.14 - October 22, 2013
  XLr8Resizer removed more integer math and replaced them with long math.
  Bugzilla [603] - XLr8Resizer does not gather statistics occasionally
  Bugzilla [604] - XLr8Resizer has a divide by zero error.
  Bugzilla [167] - XLr8Licenser needs the ability to license with a master
key
  Bugzilla [602] - XLr8Resizer was skipping large files on Universe
  XLr8Resizer increased timeout to 9 hours

v3.9.13 - October 10, 2013
  Bugzilla [547] - XLr8 Command Interpreter needed more tuning before
release.
  Removed some logging from U2Core functions.
  Bugzilla [601] - XLr8Synchronizer is gettting a JNP
  Bugzilla [602] - XLr8Resizer error on large files when gathering
statistics
  XLr8Resize fixed problem with file revision showing up on resize commands

v3.9.12 - October 08, 2013
  Fixed JNP error on XLr8Synchronizer and others.

v3.9.11 - October 07, 2013
  Speed up the copy and paste U2 files by doing a single garbage collect
for a single segment
  Bugzilla [547] - XLr8 Command Interpreter allows you to run TCL/ECL
commands from a windows and see the results.
  Bugzilla [590] - Update Quartz job processing software to version 2.2.0

v3.9.7 - September 20, 2013

U2logic does replication via UniObjects for Java.  It is built-in to our

Re: [U2] Read and Writing binary files with UOJ

 Doug,

 Looking at my old code, I call a subroutine on the backend to do the
 readblk, and then use the default reverse conversion on the return
 argument's UniString. ( byte[] myBinary = myUnistring.toString().getBytes()
  )..

 UOJ, in its wisdom, does not expose the raw byte array that it gets from
 the back end before it converts it to Java characters in a UniString, hence
 the code above. This might even work if you use the UniSequentialFile
 readBlk() function.

 Technically, it might be better to specify the character encoding, as in
 byte[] myBinary = myUnistring.toString().getBytes(ISO-8859_1), but this
 assumes that one are sure of what UOJ used to convert the bytes received
 from the server to characters, and that the conversion is 100% reversible.
 It is unclear that UOJ even defines an encoding, and if Localization is in
 use, UniStrings may not reverse to an equal byte array.

 Because of that uncertainty, it would be best to call a subroutine on the
 UDT server that did a block read of the file, a base64 encoding of it using
 ENCODE(...), and then, after passing it back to UOJ, use
 sun.misc.BASE64Decoder to convert
 the UniString return argument back to a byte[].  (After, of course, you
 convert the UniString to a String.) -- For a total of 4 conversions per
 source byte.

 Several years ago, I pointed out  to Rocket (IBM?, Ardent?) that it might
 be more appropriate for the UniSequentialFile readBlk method to return a
 byte[] rather than a UniString. Obviously, it was too late for that, but it
 does not appear that U2  has added a readBytes() method, which is no
 surprise, as I recollect the conversation. (Obviously, there needs to be a
 writeBlk( byte[] ) or writeBytes( byte[] ) method too.)

 Good luck,

 Rick Nuckolls

Since we have been running Java 1.7 for many years now, we did not realize
how many of our user base was still running Java 1.6.  With at least 16
updates since Java 1.7 came out in July of 2011, we have incorporated some
new code in our XLr8Editor for Universe and Unidata that is not backwards
compatible with the older Java.  Additionally, our new plug-in
XLr8Synchronizer requires Java 1.7 as well.

[U2] XLr8 Summer releases for Universe and Unidata [ad]

2013-08-21 Thread Doug Averch
Since this summer we have been releasing a lot features with our XLr8
product at a rapid pace, it was decided to not announce everyone.  We are
combining the last three releases into this announcement.  Below is a
summation of a couple of these amazing features we have added to our
products.

1) XLr8Synchronizer allows your local copy to in sync with the database
copy.  In a programming environment where you have multiple programmers
making change to code whether or not you are using version control, you
might want to know what go changed.  With the XLr8Synchronizer, it will
sync you programs files, procs, paragraphs, dictionaries, and even data.

2) Task tags are something that has been missing in UniBasic programming
forever.  You can now put in TODO's, FIXME's, or company specific tags into
your code.  XLr8Editor will read through your code and build what Eclipse
calls a marker view of them.  In a single view you can see what programs
tasks are still open or require changes.  This something Java programmers
have had for years.  No other UniBasic editor can do this.

Here is our change log:

v3.9.3 - August 20, 2013
   Bugzilla [584] - XLr8Synchronizer tries to sync object code
   Bugzilla [319] - XLr8Editor needs the Task Tags option like java editor
supports
   Bugzilla [587] - XLr8Editor basic code indexer freezes the UI
   XLr8Synchronizer allows for color coding the tags
   XLr8Editor indexer now starts in a second or so instead of 3 minutes.

v3.9.2 - August 16, 2013
   Added new quartz library for Job processing
   Updated documentation for tasks tags
   Bugzilla [319] - XLr8Editor supports tasks tags like Java and other
languages.

v3.9.1 - August 08, 2013
   Remove console message on copy DB to local
   Bugzilla [570] - XLr8Installer delete key is not working
   Bugzilla [296] - XLr8Synchronizer is completed

Re: [U2] I am looking for a CRM package on multi-value

2013-08-07 Thread Doug Averch
The reason U2 is such a small player in the database market is, in my
opinion, we are a VAR driven market.  The VAR's can only sell so much.  The
software quality of the applications is dependent on the VAR.  And don't
get me start on telnet applications.  If Rocket Software U2 sold
applications, you would need a business case BS for every reason to get
the database, documentation, and tools moving into the 21st century.

  From: Wjhonson
  I am looking for a Customer Relationship Management application.
 
  I have a client who is familiar with Universe and would prefer that,
 but
  willing to look at other MV database applications.
 
  However they also will want to demo this to their own clients from
  time-to-time and so want a pretty looking face on it.
  The backend has to be multi-value of some sort, so don't pitch me
 non
  multi-value solutions please
 
  What are my choices if any?
 
  Only looking for *already installed* choices, not custom work.
  Some customization is always necessary, but they want to see a working
  application from the get-go.

We have a client with 6,000 dictionaries items and they have no performance
problems  If the dictionary is sized correctly, there generally is no
performance hit.  However, editing it with some tools is a pain because it

Re: [U2] XAdmin wiki?

2013-08-05 Thread Doug Averch
Hi:

The problem is not whether you need a wiki or not.  The problem is the
documentation is terrible and in most cases non-existent. A year ago at U2
University a majority of us discussed this with the board of Rocket U2.
 The agreed with us they would fix this and show some examples as well.

Well, here we are a year and many months later with the same problem.  New
users and non-eclipse users cannot figure out how this tool works.

Since U2logic is a U2 VAR, U2logic does get paid to tell our clients how to
use this tool and the others.  However, since the tools are given away by
Rocket there is little money in the pot for any meaningful help.

Doug

[U2] U2logic's announces a synchronization engine for it XLr8 tools [ad]

2013-08-03 Thread Doug Averch
We are announcing our new synchronization engine built into our XLr8
products. U2logic has put out over 30 releases this year with 15 more
scheduled.  Our current version of our tools is 3.9.0.

Why the need to Sync, you are probably asking yourself?  XLr8Editor is
based on the Eclipse framework which means all of your editing is done
locally and saved in your workspace.  XLr8Editor allows off-line editing of
your basic code so sometimes you want to know if the code you have been
working on differs from the database version.  The XLr8 Synchronization
engine will tell whether your source code has been changed either locally
or from the U2 database.

We have some batch routines that updates all of our HTML in Universe.  If
another programmer runs the batch job our XLr8 Synchronizer will tell you
to update your local source code via our XLr8 Synchronization engine.  This
will save us hours on updating our source code manually for our version
control system that is built into all of our XLr8 products like XLr8Editor,
XLr8Dictionary Editor, XLr8Resizer, XLr8Installer, XLr8Developer, and
XLr8Object Editor.

 The field acts as before the last time I compiled it.


 I've found the new chances will only work after I delete attributes 16 - 20

If you use equates (EQUATE ACTION.DATE TO 12) then our XLr8 Eclipse based
system knows that your destination is 12 and is called ACTION.DATE.   If
you U2 dictionary has 5 references to the position 12, then you will have
to have add a definition file to allow the translation to something other

 It's up to the dictionary, and/or human knowledge of what the date means

 So how do you address that problem by just reading code?

  - Ability to delete indexes
  - Ability to build indexes
  - Ability to save your dictionary file to a tab delimited file which
  then you can print in Excel
  - You can added edit dictionaries that begin with CON.
   2. XLr8Editor

  Unidata only.  (Universe in a few weeks)
  - The outline of variables and subroutines can be sorted

Although we think the Universe and Unidata market does not understand the
importance of monthly updates let alone weekly updates, we think we do at
U2logic.  We are adding features and enhancements as fast as we can to our
XLr8 Tools products.  We have just finished these for our 3.8.1 release:



v3.8.1 - July 04, 2013

   Removed Auto Save, Auto Compare, and Continuous compile consoled on/off
messages.

   Cleaned up XLr8Editor preferences from abbreviations to real words.

   Cleaned up XLr8Dictionary messages to the console.

   Bugzilla [537] - XLr8Dictionary filter changes to align with table.

   Bugzilla [544] - XLr8Editor outline needs to be sorted alphabetically



Thanks again to our staff for their commitment to getting enhancements and
bug fixes out the door on a regular basis.  Hopefully, all of you using our
tools appreciate our team as well.

[U2] New XLr8Editor Update Version 3.7.7 [ad]

2013-06-17 Thread Doug Averch
Although sometimes we think we are not releasing software fast enough, we
look at our competition to see what they are doing.  They mentioned at U2
University that they would be releasing their tools on a monthly basis.
 For about 6 months the only release of their competing product was a
version number update.  That confirmed to us that monthly releases are a
tough nut to crack.  You must be disciplined in what you can finish in 3 to
4 weeks and get the software out the door.

We are glad to report that U2logic has been doing that for many many years
now.  We have just added features like Before Read Call so that you can
call any program before the read.  The was in response to a user that
needed to call their own UniBasic routine before the XLr8Editor reads the
item in.

Here is our change log for the past few months:

v3.7.7, v3.7.6 - June 15, 2013
   Bugzilla [533] - XLr8Editor multiple reads problem fixed
   Bugzilla [448] - XLr8Framework needs to have a create U2 File Wizard.
 Part 1 is completed.
   XLr8Licenser updates with removal of Google pay option

v3.7.5 - May 28, 2013
   Added Before Call option to XLr8Editor

v3.7.4 - April 27, 2013
   Removed log4j update and reverted to prior release.

v3.7.3 - April 27, 2013
   XLr8Licenser will upcase MAC addresses.
   Bugzilla [Bug 382] - XLr8Framework Search brings up local version on
Editor not the database version
   Updated to UOJ to current
   Updated log4j to 1.2.17

v3.7.2 - April 08, 2013
   Bugzilla [Bug 520] - XLr8Framework requires an upgrade to Quartz Job
Scheduler 2.1.7
   Force MAC license key to uppercase.
   Fixed relock on compile issue.

v3.7.1 - April 02, 2013
   XLr8Editor fixed the problem with lock not being released on compile or
save.
   XLr8Editor added relocking after save or compile.
   XLr8Framework update to fixed JNP when trying to determine file type.

v3.6.9, 3.6.10 - April 01, 2013
   XLr8Resizer not handling directory files correctly
   XLr8Installer not creating new files with matching Unidata or Universe
file types and sizes
   XLr8Developer added support for tree grids.

 Hi Dan,

 With respect to BDT version, I installed it a month or two ago, and
 recently applied an update (mine shows version 3.0.6) but note that in the
 text description it still says March 2012 as the date.   Can we assume that
 3.0.6 is the current version or did we miss something?   Also, when using
 libraries like UDO for example, the syntax highlighting flags unassigned
 variable warnings; is there a way to teach it to avoid this?

Re: [U2] revision control with git/github

2013-04-30 Thread Doug Averch
Hi Aaron:

[ad]
We have tested our XLr8Editor with an Eclipse plug-in for github.  This
means you do not have to have procs, paragraphs, or others in directory
files since everything in Eclipse is loaded locally.  One of our clients is
a SB/XA house using XLr8Editor with Team Foundation.  By the way
dictionaries can be source code controlled as well.

This means any version control such as SVN, Team Foundation, github or
Perforce can be used in the Unidata or Universe database.  All of this
power can be had for $79.00 per year per workstation.  We update our
product at least every two or three weeks with new features and bug fixes.

 Can you still get hot standby licences?

 They used to cost a quarter of the full price, or what we did was have a

Hi Brian:

Built into BDT from Rocket Software is a re-factor option.   I have used
that option a few times in testing and found it to be of limited value,
because there is no way to get all of the code locally.  You must have the
code locally to use re-factoring. I have re-factored code in Eclipse using
the Java Editor.  I found that does a fairly good job.

In our XLr8Editor I have not put in re-factoring because the Eclipse global
search and replace does an adequate job for changing the source.  I
generally like to see all of the code and make sure it it what needs to be
changed.  I can copy and paste source to you local work space fairly easily
which solves the local problem for Eclipse.

Our XLr8Editor that was mentioned before is based on Eclipse IDE.  This
means you can get source code control, syntax checking as you type, code
completion, and much much more.  XLr8Editor and the rest of U2logic tools
for Universe get updated about every 3 to 4 weeks with new enhancements and
bug fixes which the free editors cannot afford to do.

We are just about finished adding the ability to add documentation and
examples to code completion.  XLr8Editor is $79.00 per year per workstation.

We have free trials.  Check out our download instructions at

 Does anyone know why UniData (v7.2.12) responds differently to the SETPTR
 command between two different machines? I created a local printer, which I
 share as UDGENERIC, that is a generic/text printer to a file.  I did
 this
 on both machines.

 Machine 1 - Windows 2008 R2 fully updated - UniData 77 user Standard

 7212

 :SETPTR 0,146,61,0,0,1,BRIEF,NOEJECT,**NOHEAD,DEST UDGENERIC

 This command takes exactly 60 seconds to return to ECL.

 Machine 2 - Windows 2008 R2 fully updated - UniData 24 user Workgroup
 Edition.

 UniData RDBMS 7.2 Yes

 This command returns to ECL immediately.

 Both machines are Dell R210 rack-mount servers.  I'm having the

 ...which is caused by one of our subroutines, used everywhere in our

Issue UDT-4104 - Problem Description

UniBasic -- At this release of UniData, the ICONV and OCONV functions

(Masked Milliseconds) has been added.

The internal data storage format is the number of milliseconds since
midnight.

The syntax for the ICONV Milliseconds (MM) function is:

 I guess I am confused on the definition of quantized. NAP 250 seems to
 do what
 I want. Doing a LOOP 1000 and NAP 1 inside the loop, makes it takes quite
 a few
 seconds, where I would assume it would be 1 second (1000 x 1 millisecond -
 1
 second). However, loop 20 with NAP 250 in the loop takes 5 seconds, which
 is
 what I would expect (20 x 250 milliseconds = 5 seconds).

 Also, the OCONV documentation only shows OCONV(num.expr,MT[H][S][c]) as a
 syntax. No option for displaying milliseconds. The only why I know to do
 that is
 to use SYSTEM(12).

 I guess I was just using TIME() not SYSTEM(12) as it was easier to visually
 scan.

 Your napping for a quarter of a second is too long :) I was saying that
 NAP is
 quantized.  You can't actually NAP for a microsecond.
 So loop 1000 and NAP 1
 By the way you can return the microseconds, why are you doing MTS


 I never bothered to dig into it, to see on what it's quantized.

 Without MTS you can see the microseconds.

 Wow, thanks of all of the responses. Unfortunately, none of them will seem
 to
 work on UniData. I will be using NAP on UniVerse.

 PAUSE and WAKE, I had not heard of. This is only on UniData so not a
 UniVerse
 option. It would seem to be a good way to go, except for if the phantom
 process
 aborts, the WAKE is never executed and the invoking process (UniObjects
 subroutine) hangs forever.

 David's openSocket suggestion does not wait at all if the socket can be
 opened.
 If it cannot (for example host name is bad), the timeout is sometimes much
 longer, probably due to DNS lookup of the bad host name.

 I tried these examples in the code below. The results are show below the
 code.


 When I run this, using NAP 250, I get 4 times the same, then another 4
 times the
 same etc. This seems to show NAP 250 does sleep for a quarter of a second.

 Doing NAP 1 for 2000 iterations took 31 seconds. Probably due to overhead
 of
 setting up NAP 2000 times.

 The openSocket came right back all the time.

 Any other ideas, I am open to testing.

 Again, thanks for all of the responses!

Re: [U2] converting D3 to UniData

2012-11-22 Thread Doug Averch
Hi Danny:

We have converted a lot of D3 users to to Unidata.  The biggest part of the
conversion is the dictionaries.  Unidata uses the Prime standard
dictionaries unlike Universe which can use both Prime and Pick standard.
 Unidata conversion utilities want to make all of the dictionaries
multi-valued which complicates the virtual fields or the I-descriptors.

The basic code converts fairly easily except for spooling.  Unidata
supports Windows spooling so you options of SP.ASSIGN are limited and you
should convert the commands to SETPTR which allows you to control all
aspects of the printing for laser printers.  If you are converting to
Unidata UNIX then all printing is pretty standard.

If you are converting to Unidata Windows or Unidata UNIX, there are some
special characters that the OS's do not like.  We have found a lot of Id's
that are problematic but not so in D3.  You will have convert any special
characters out of D3 before copying them over to Unidata.

Good Luck,
Doug

Hi Jerry:

We have been running internally Universe on Windows 2008R2 using the 32 bit
version for years.  We have found that occasionally we have a run away uv
process that consumes the machine. We keep either a Process Explorer window
open or Window Task Manager to kill the run away processes, because you
cannot get them to start on the Windows VM side.  We have not used 10.3
release in so long we cannot say except it is better to be current.  We
have client that is using Universe 11.3 on Windows 2008R2 and is not
experiencing any issues.

Disk I/O is shared so their is a speed hit which we notice on large files.
 We have just configured a replacement machine with a SSD on it.  We think
the speed increase will more than offset the VM shared resource issues.

2012-11-05 Thread Doug Averch
We just added functionality to allow the use the XLr8Editor for dictionary
items that are really not dictionary items, like SB+ definitions on the
last version.  We did not give you a way to refresh the XLr8Dictionary
Editor for new values.  The additional items were added to the dictionary
file in Unidata or Universe as well as your local directory.  By the way
the local directory is used for Version Control, so your dictionary items
are under control.  There is now a refresh icon to re-display the
XLr8Dictionary grid.

Here is the change log as well:

Re: [U2] [BDT] A giant leap forward

2012-10-26 Thread Doug Averch
Hi Dan:

XLr8Editor has a code completion piece that reads all of your code in your
local work space and indexes it.  So, if you cannot remember a local
include does you just start typing and hit control space.  The XLr8Editor
then brings up those variables matching what you have already typed.  This
is very helpful when trying to remember what you called dynamic array
position in the include.

Additionally, both BDT and XLr8Editor support hitting the function key F3
when you are on the include to open it a separate tab.  I find this more
helpful when I have an include that is more than 10 lines long.

 I guess they are trying to use regular parsing tools for what just isn't a
 standard language: UniBasic doesn't follow normal syntax rules.

 And of course, it only works if you're using regular UniBasic - not if you
 have a pre-compiler or want to edit anything else (e.g. a PROC, Paragraph,
 script, or some other asset like an HTML template or data item)..

 That's why mvDeveloper has always had its own hand-built parser and syntax
 definitions that can be customized. The new version extends this to allow
 new syntax types to be added based on standard 'families' and a new plug-in
 architecture to support a wider range of tools. It affects all kinds of
 things from the comment in/out rules, through navigation e.g. by next/prev
 labels to the build/compile commands.

 I'll be officially releasing version 2 early next month - so watch this

[U2] XLr8 Tools Release version 3.5.14 [ad]

2012-10-24 Thread Doug Averch
I was at the U2 University this year in Denver.  In one of the classes I
attended a would be user of BDT suggested to the speaker that it would be
nice to see in the dictionary editor which fields are indexed.  In this
release of XLr8Dictionary Editor that has been done.  Sorry Rocket U2logic
beat your to the punch.

Some of SB/XA users would like to use the XLr8Editor out of the
XLr8Dictionary which is limited to 10 fields.  If you click on a generic
field (those storing data, screens, procedures, or whatever, the
XLr8Dictionary editor will open another window and you can edit this field.
 All of your changes will be saved to the database and locally.  So those
using any Eclipse supported version control (GIT, Perforce, SVN, Team
Foundation, and CVS) will be able to version control these as well.

Another important change for use was the ability to page through program
files.  One of our users of XLr8Editor has over 1000 programs in a
directory.  Building a tree view of that was very painful for them.  You
can set the value through the preferences option to what size your
XLr8Editor view is before paging takes place.  There are arrows to handle
adding to the view at what every size you would like to see.

Here is our changelog:

v3.5.14 - October 24, 2012
   Bugzilla [Bug 516] - XLr8Dictionary item Code field always was blank
when creating new items, which has been fixed.

v3.5.13 - October 23, 2012
   Bugzilla [Bug 324] - XLr8Dictionary Editor allows editing non-native
dictionary fields in the XLr8Editor (SB/XA Request)
   Bugzilla [Bug 483] - XLr8Dictionary Editor shows color coding on
dictionary fields that have indexes.
   Bugzilla [Bug 318] - XLr8Framework Item List View supports paging on
large number of records.
   1) Removed catalog error message for Unidata which does not report a
positive action

 Comma is used to Tab the output, it doesn't seem to like that idea,
 complaining about something or other.

Re: [U2] [u2] Parallel processing in Universe (Unclassified)

2012-10-02 Thread Doug Averch
Only outside of U2 using UniObjects can you achieve any type of parallel
activity. We have through UniObjects got 80 processes working from a single
Eclipse session through the use of threads in Java.

UniObjects creates individual uvapi_slave or udapi_slave for each of these
processes but the system or in this case the udapi_server or uvadpi_server
cannot handle as many threads as we would like.  We never ran out of memory
on our 8GB Windows 2008R2 Server nor did SSD 120GB drive fail to keep up
with the 80 ANALYZE.FILES or the 80 RESIZE commands we were issuing on from
our XLr8Resizer product within Eclipse.

The only way we got this working was to set the retries to 1000 on
reopening the connections.  Although that number seems high it helped and
get us from our previous best of 39 process to 80 process. When we have a
lot of time and cannot think of anything better to do we will try for 500
process.

 I have often thought about this - mostly in an idle moment or as a
 displacement activity for something less amusing that I ought to be doing.
 ;-)


 First of all, Universe is already extremely parallel: there's a separate
 O/S thread for each TTY and for each phantom, and you can't get more
 parallel than that for interactive processing.

 So you want more parallelism for your batch processes.
 Different applications have different degrees of inherent parallelism.
 For example in utility billing systems there is frequently the concept of
 a group of premises - based on the old concept of a foot-borne meter reader
 with a 'book' of readings to get. Each 'book' can be processed
 independently of every other. In payroll, each employee's record can be
 processed independently. Other areas of commerce have different
 characteristics.

 I think that whatever unit of parallelism you settle for, you'd need three
 processes: a 'dispatcher' that selects records for processing and queues
 them into some structure for processing; a set of 'workers' that take
 queued work items, process them, mark them as processed and put the results
 in some common store; and a 'monitor' that looks for unprocessed records
 and indications of stuck processes, and collates the results for final
 output.
 I've seen a couple of versions of this, one for electricity billings and
 another for overnight batch-processing of report requests, both well over a
 decade ago, and neither still in use although their underlying packages are
 still being run.

 The major issue is that these days the whole entity in the general
 commercial world is far more likely to be I/O limited than CPU limited, and
 therefore introducing parallelism will be no help at all if the I/O system
 is already choked.
 Even if the system is currently CPU-limited, multi-threading may not
 produce much improvement without very careful design of the record locking
 philosophy - introducing parallelism will be no help if all the threads end
 up contending serially for one record lock or a small set of locks.


 If you want it to go faster, buy the CPU with the fastest clock you can
 get (not the one with the most cores), and put your database on SSD like
 Ross said.
 The Power7+ chips being announced any day now are rumoured to go to
 5GHz+, maybe even more if you have half the cores on the chip disabled.

 Mike

 If the file were big enough, and already had part files, then I believe
 that you could have a phantom process each of the individual parts.
 Failing that, get an SSD  relatively cheap, and will give your
 processing a reasonable kick along!!

[U2] XLr8Resizer Update and all other Tools [ad]

2012-09-27 Thread Doug Averch
In addition to fixing a couple of XLr8Resizing issues, we have totally
revamped the logging.  This was quite an extensive task.
We updated over 300 java programs to change their logging to a new
standardized class.  This will allow us or you to see
your logs while running in Eclipse.  We should have that documented next
week for those who really need to know what
is going on.

v3.5.11 - September 27, 2012
   1) Fixed Guide in Unidata error reporting modulo 7168.
   2) Fixed XLr8Resizer error in Unidata calculation of the block size
instead of standard

[U2] XLr8Resizer focused release 3.5.10 [ad]

2012-09-13 Thread Doug Averch
U2logic is pleased to announce a new release of it XLr8Tools version
3.5.10.  We have added multi-threading to the XLr8Resizer to speed up
analyze and resizing.   Our XLr8Resizer will be priced until the end of the
month at $99.00 and then will be $149.00 per year per user.  Our XLr8Editor
will be priced until the end of this month for $49.00 and then will be
$79.00 per year per user.  We think we have added a lot of value to both
products and will continue to do so.

Just a side note we had trouble on our test system getting more than 39
users to be used without running out of memory on Eclipse or too many
threads for UniObjects for Java (UOJ) to handle simultaneously.  We had to
slow up our Java code because UOJ cannot handle the management of that many
sessions with commands like ANALYZE.FILE and RESIZE on
Universe.  Curiously, Unidata performed better with guide and memresize
maybe to the fact they are OS commands.

Here is our changed log for this release:

v3.5.10 - September 14, 2012

   Bugzilla [Bug 464] - XLr8Resizer can use all of the connections you want
simultaneously for resizing

   1) Added preference color choice for when Analyze.File fails

   2) Added preference for connection time attempts

   3) Added preference for max attempts to connect

[U2] Quirks in UOJ and resizing

2012-09-10 Thread Doug Averch
I was upgrading our XLr8Resizer to do multi-threading on the analyze and
resizing.  So, my Java programmer asked a simple question:  How much faster
will our multi-threading be than single threading? I found it was anywhere
from 0% faster to 45% faster when testing our 6000 file sample database
with files sizes from 10mb to 2gb.

But this got me to thinking is TCL/ECL resizing slower or faster that from
UOJ as a command.  Oh boy was I surprised. The TCL/ECL resize command on
average to anywhere from 5% to 200% slower.  I was totally dumb founded on
this that UOJ resizing will be faster that typing the command in TCL/ECL.
 In this case the quirk is a good quirk not a bad one.

2012-08-27 Thread Doug Averch
We are please to announce that you can save off your statistics that
XLr8Resizer gathers for you in a CSV file.  This allows you to use other
graphing tools besides the one's supplied by U2Logic in XLr8Resizer.  A
sample file looks like this for Universe:

# XLr8Resizer Statistics 
AcctName,FileName,DateTime,FileType,Modulo,BlockSize,RecordCount,ByteSize,Overflow
XLr8,ACCT.ACCOUNT.CATEGORY,8_18_2012 8:11:8,30,4,8,176,10696,0
XLr8,ACCT.BANKS,8_18_2012 8:11:8,18,3,8,2,6096,1
XLr8,ACCT.BUDGETS,8_18_2012 8:11:8,30,1,8,1,384,0
XLr8,ACCT.CHECKS,8_18_2012 8:11:8,30,49,16,2387,241096,2

Here is our complete change log for this release

v3.5.9 - August 27, 2012
   1) Migrated from actions system to commands system , this includes
deleting Actions related classes not needed.
   2) Disabling certain commands in popup menu when offline (and
toolbar/main menu)
   3) Get marks (subvalue, field etc) from hard coded constants (In
U2Connection statically) not Account settings so that insert commands work
offline
   4) The continuous compile job will now stop when XLr8Editor is closed.
   Bugzilla [Bug 495] - XLr8Resizer has a wizard for the save resize
history and commands

Our XLr8Resizer is priced at $99.00 per workstation per year.   Trial
licenses are available at at no cost.  This release works for all Unidata
releases from 6.0 up and Universe releases from 10.0 up.

[U2] XLr8Editor supports Off Line Editing [ad]

2012-08-20 Thread Doug Averch
We have just released the our flag ship product called XLr8Editor version
3.5.8.  We have always allowed editing of U2 UniBasic code in offline mode
so that if you were at the hotel or on a plane you could change the code
and sync up later.  However, several of our clients wanted to use the same
editor to edit other Basic source code (D3) with our XLr8Editor.

This simply can be done by creating a General Project in Eclipse and
pointing the project folder to the appropriate area on your network or
workstation.  The documentation is at
http://www.u2logic.com/pdfs/XLr8EditorOffLine.pdf. All current users of our
XLr8Editor can upgrade to this release at no cost.  The rest of you can try
it out by emailing supp...@u2logic.com your installation id, see installation
instructions http://www.u2logic.com/pdfs/XLr8Installation.pdf.

UniObjects has two components.  First the unirpc process runs as you have
