IDSC's with ClassDescribe()

#1 Post by rdonnay »

Lately, I have been having many IDSC's after running a SQL query on ADS.

It appears to be related to ClassDescribe().

I determined this because the IDSC's occur when converting an array of DataObjects to JSON or XML.

The process is:

1. Perform a SQL Select statement and get a cursor.
2. Step thru the work area and create an array of DataObjects using DC_DbRecord().
3. Convert the array of DataOjects using Var2Json() or Var2Xml().

This causes an IDSC and the error info is different every time.
It doesn't even need to be a large array of objects.

After I quit the program and start it again, then any call to ClassDescribe() will fail with an IDSC.
I have to reboot the computer.
Sometimes I even have to unplug the Thunderbolt or I won't get an internet connection.
This is a very serious failure. I haven't seen IDSC's in years and I have never seen one that crashes the OS.
Years ago I wrote my own DC_Var2Json() function and it requires ClassDescribe(),
It fails now too.

I am trying to isolate this.
It doesn't seem to happen in SqlQuery but it happens in a WebService program using HttpEndPoint().

I want to get this conversation started to find out if anyone is converting ADS SQL cursors to arrays of objects and then to JSON or XML.
The eXpress train is coming - and it has more cars.
