[U-L] Application server "problems"

We are trying to use the Application server (ASV) to send async. messages
from a form on one machine to a service on another. We have created all the
.ini .asn files (as far as we know) according to the configuration guide.

The sender seems to work, the message arrives to the message daemon at the
reciever… now the problem begins, the message is queued at the daemon and
nothing more happens. If we have understod everything right, the message
daemon should start the ASV and deliver the message to the service; if we
start the service manually the message is not queued but nothing happens
with the service.

We are aware of that the text above doesn’t explain the problem too well,
but if there is anyone that have had some experience with the ASV and have
any idea of what we are doing wrong, please let us know ( or if anyone can
direct us to some document that explains the ASV better than the
installation/configuration guides does)

[U-L] Antwort: using /cpy from the command line with ODBC


generally speaking, it should be possible.

- it should be easier to track the problem by dividing it into two steps:
 a) convert from DBF to TRX
 b) convert from TRX to ORA:

- Have a look at your ASN-Files
— where are the dbf-files directed to
— where is ORA: directed to

- increase I/O-priority to 127 to see which file UNIFACE tries to access.

Thema:    [U-L] using /cpy from the command line with ODBC

Is it possible to copy data from an ODBC Data Source, in my case FoxPro
into an Oracle database ?
For example :-     /cpy od1:Cmocode.dbf ora:
I’ve tried a number of combinations, but I get the error :-
8066 – Copy failed :open error on input file/table ‘Cmocode.dbf’
I believe that my ODBC Data Source settings are ok.
Is there an assignment setting missing ?
IS it possible ??

Tree List Column Width

In a tree view part of a tree control is there any way to find the width of
a column.

You can get the original size of the column from the field properties but
if the user adjusts the column size is there any way to get that.

Thanks Sanchez Mena and everyone else who responded.

The autolabel was on!
When I turned it off it worked fine.

5.2g Y2K Ready?

We have a very stable application written in Uniface 5.2g, I have testing
the system by forward the system date to 31 Dec, 1999 – 1 Jan, 2000 and then
28 Feb, 2000 – 29 Feb, 2000, all the function look work fine, and all the
report show the correct fig., should I converted it to a 7.2.03? Since
migrate to 7.2.03 is a big afford.

Is that any known problem of 5.2g on Y2K issue?
