I was a little intrigued that I had never heard of it before, since the resident databaseadministrator described it as the Final Answer To All Problems. The thing I miss most about it is the hierarchical database backing it. That ihtersystems not exist. After a sufficient number of years have passed, you’ll either love or hate to death the tools you’re using, especially if they are the only ones you’re working with.

I appreciate that MUMPS has its enthusiasts, but we just don’t sell it any more, and we haven’t since the s. Really slow queries when compared with any variant of SQL I have tuyorial, data I expect in sub seconds can take minutes!

The structure is schema-less and the data is stored in multidimensional hierarchical sparse arrays also known as key-value nodes, sub-trees, or associative memory. No exception handling, no encapsulation, no typing, and so on.

What I found is really astounding. Turned out that that particular class wasn’t converted to the new OO system and that you gutorial to use the old calling method, but this information was nowhere to be found it didn’t differ one bit from other classes I used.

Compilation does not always work first time despite what studio reports.

So I’m running into this error that while it is briefly mentioned in their documentation I hate their documentation or undocumentation doesn’t make any sense, because it shouldn’t be handled by them. I even had the ‘pleasure’ of going to one of the sales spiels on the ‘new’ Cache with tjtorial its OO features and so on An improved successor version is actively marketed by InterSystems Corp.

Of course, I’m not kntersystems at the code, but the number of bizarre bugs, glitches, general weirdness and WTF-inspiring bits of interface design makes me want to get my hands on whatever stuff their QA guys are smoking.

What the Daily WTF?

But it’s not line in your code! He can be reached at:. It was a great write-up. I can advise that the new code editor is an improvement over the older in that the syntax highlighting is no longer so slow that it grinds your system to a halt. Oh, yeah, good luck trying to find any sort of querying tool that can give you a useful execution plan; “Query tuning?


So you have these tables, that you can’t really see, and you have data, which is like no where. Smells like a macro-language if you ask me.
