Events from database

Startbeitrag von Tor-Bjarne am 08.10.2013 09:05


I recently got som VS projects running against Sybase that I`m working with.

The guys writing this projects has managed to get events into VS from the database, cind of, like a trigger - but - all the different apps that are connected get`s a event when tables are changed.

The way they solved this was greating an Insert/update/delete trigger on every table - then - the trigger code sends a message via the connection to all connected apps. (Event-Message is someting like: Insert,tablename,recordid)

This way allication A will notify application B that a change was performed on table X (If application B care or are started).
If application B need to react on a table insert from application A it gets an envent that trigger App B to do something.
(and if app B has some action perhaps app A need to be notifyed (if it care or are started)
If I like to write Application C at a later stage I only need to listen to for an event if I need to react on a table-insert.

I solved similar functionality in WinDev agains MS-SQL where I create a table and let the trigger insert a record into a sync table (synctable is Tablename,action,recordid) - then I can check this table to see if another app/user has added or modified a record - But I need to check, the first approach I only write an On-event - do something, in my second solution I need to check the sync table at a regular time(r).

Now I like to use same functionallity in an Hyperfile C/S solution and my question is: Is there a way to send events/messages via the connection in Hyperfile C/S ?



never done it but maybe HSendMessageToClient, HOnServerCall functions and server triggers can help you.

I think this is possible in PostgreSQL. So if you can change you database then try to adopt pgSQL :)

Thank you for your reply Yogi and Paulo :)

Yogi - PosgreSQL is not an option on this project since I want server sync., easy server install etc. already in the box from PCSoft.

Paulo - This might do the trick, since HOnServerCall actually can run a procedure, this procedure can check a synctable and produce events :)

I Get back to you when class is written and tested ;)

Nope - HSendMessageToClient, HOnServerCall functions can not be used in a server-side stored procedure. :(

as a workaround, instead of having all the apps checking a sync file, you could have a small app running on the server (or a service, even) always checking that file and sending the messages to each client...

Best regards

Thank you Fabrice - Yes, this would be possible.

Not shure however, how I could send an event from the server to the different PC`s (that I dont know the IP addres to), but I guess there is a way? :)


von Tor-Bjarne - am 09.10.2013 14:42
Hi again

yes, with hsendmesagetoclient and all the associated hxxx functions allowing you to list the clients

ie exactly as described in the previous answer, just NOT from a stored procedure

Best regards

Again Fabrice, Thank you :)
