  • 1. ODBC to ingres fails
    Hello all I am having trouble linking tables in ingres ii 2.0 to access 2000 via odbc. The connection works in vdba/netutil/dsn but when I try to link a table in access I get one of two errors. Intermittently it does work when I create the link, but after that it seems to randomly give one of these errors: All field headings are displayed but the data is replaced with "#Name?" in every cell. It also displays the following error message: "ODBC--call failed" Alternatively I get nothing displayed apart from an error message: "ODBC--call failed [CA][Ingres ODBC Drive][Ingres]SELECT on table gd(#3502)", and when I clear that message I get "Microsoft Access can't open the table in Datasheet view." It displays the details of the table in design view but just won't open it. Help!! thanks in advance Richard

[Info-ingres] OpenAPI Parameter Place Holders

Postby martin.bowes » Sat, 01 Oct 2005 21:59:39 GMT

Hi Grant et al,

If you have a spare second or two....

Is there any difference between using the '?' place holder for an SQL 
statement and using a '~V'?

eg insert into fred values(?,?,?,?) works.

But if we change the '?' to space tilda V space. The query fails with 
either:
Illegal binarty value in query text
or
OpenAPI function cannot be called in current state.

We get the first if we set queryParm.qy_parameters=FALSE or TRUE 
respectively.

The manual suggests  these are equivalenet and hints that ~V is 
preferred - although we may be reading too much into that...

1.[Info-ingres] OpenAPI Caling a database procedure

Hi Grant et al,

I'm trying call a database procedure synchronously from an OpenAPI 
application. The procedure has no parameters, all I want is the return 
value. My understanding is that I set IIapi_query to say I'm executing a 
database procedure. It will not do anything until the necessary 
parameters (including procedure name and owner) are supplied and 
filled in.

However, the code seems to hang at the initial iiapi_query() call. 

I am using in order the following:
IIapi_query()
	QueryParm.qy_queryType=IIAPI_QT_EXEC_PROCEDURE;
	QueryParm.qy_queryText=NULL;
	QueryParm.qy_parameters=TRUE; 
    I don't wait on gp_completed.

IIapi_setDescriptor()
	setDescParm.sd_stmtHandle=QueryParm.qy_stmtHandle;
	setDescParm.sd_descriptorCount=2;

    I then allocate storage for two parameter descriptors for the 
    array setDescParm.sd_descriptor. In each element of which I 
    set ds_dataType = IIAPI_CHA_TYPE,
    ds_nullable = FALSE, 
    ds_columnType = IIAPI_COL_SVCPARM
    ds_columnName = NULL

    I wait on gp_completed.

IIapi_putParms()
	Fill in the procedure name, owner values described above, call 
the procedure an wait on gp_completed.

At this point I wait on the IIapi_query to complete.
Then I call IIapi_get_QueryInfo to pick up the procedure return value.

2.[Info-ingres] OpenAPI Weirdness

Hi Grant et al,

Sorry to bother you directly Grant, but I'm at my wits end on this one 
and could use some advice. If anyone else in the newsgroup would like 
to chip in 2c worth, I'd be happy too.

I've written a C program which has a subroutine full of API stuff. This 
subroutine controls connecting to three databases in sequence to do 
stuff. From the final database connection it reads in a lot (17511 rows) 
of data to the program before disconnecting and then terminating the 
API before returning to the main program. 

All of which appears to work perfectly well. The data returned to the 
program is exactly what is in the database.

But after the IIapi_terminate succeeds, the subroutine will return a 
TRUE. Diagnostics indicates this is all happening. But the subroutine 
NEVER returns to the main program. Instead it either loops? or causes 
a coredump.

The code is literally:
main (...) {
if (Generate_Analysed_Data(&SayWhat)) {
    printf("Generate_Analysed_Data completed OK!\n");
} else {
    printf("Unexpected Error: Failed to Generate Analysed Data\n");
    printf("Program Aborts\n");
    exit (1);
    };
} /*main*/

int Generate_Analysed_Data ( ParmDetails *buf) {
... stuff ...
/* Initialise OpenAPI */
if (!Init_API(&InitParm)) {return(FALSE);};
... Lots of stuff ...
/* In all cases we an now terminate the API connection */
printf("Terminate me!\n");
if (!Terminate_API) {
    printf("Failure in API termination!\n");
    ret_value=FALSE;
    };

printf("Generate_Analysed_Data returns %d\n", ret_value);
return (ret_value);
} /*Generate_Analysed_Data*/

int Terminate_API (void) {
IIAPI_TERMPARM termParm;
IIapi_terminate(&termParm);
if ( termParm.tm_status != IIAPI_ST_SUCCESS ) {
    printf( "Open_API::Terminate_API. Error in IIapi_terminate: %d\n",
        termParm.tm_status );
    };
return termParm.tm_status;
} /*Terminate_API*/

The diagnostic output is:
Terminate me!
Generate_Analysed_Data returns 1
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


I've run in api_trace mode (5) and the trace file (1.2M) is beautiful:
grep 'status =' $II_SYSTEM/ingres/files/api_trace.log| grep -v 
SUCCESS
!IIapi_appCallback: request completed, status = NO_DATA

All the connects/disconnects are cool. All started statements are 
closed, commits are issued etc.

I've run this on II2.5 and from an II2.6 installation using vnodes back to 
the II2.5 database and the effect is the same. 

Any Ideas gratefully received. I have the core dump and dbx but I have 
no idea what I'm looking for or how to drive dbx....

4.[Info-ingres] OpenAPI error function called in wrong state

Hi Everyone,

As I'm just starting the joy of using API - why?Dont ask! Lets just say 
the curiosity got the better of me.

I've managed to get a connection to the database! Yay! Well at least it 
claims to have connected to the database. There is no sign of a 
connection being started in iircp.log....

Now I'm struggeling to get a non select query to execute. It keeps 
bitching about an API function called in the wrong state.

Anyone got any ideas?

The output from setting II_API_TRACE=5 and II_API_LOG to a suitable

5.[Info-ingres] OpenAPI Calling a database procedure

Hi.

If you are executing a procedure without params then sd_descriptorCount
should be 1. This could be the cause of the hang? The code below is what
I do within the PHP extension to support procedures without params. I
have tagged on the end the code for getting the return code from a
procedure. 

	queryParm.qy_genParm.gp_callback = NULL;
	queryParm.qy_genParm.gp_closure = NULL;
	queryParm.qy_connHandle = connHandle;
	queryParm.qy_tranHandle = tranHandle;
	queryParm.qy_stmtHandle = NULL;
	queryParm.qy_queryType  = IIAPI_QT_EXEC_PROCEDURE;
	queryParm.qy_parameters = TRUE;
	queryParm.qy_queryText  = NULL;

	IIapi_query(&queryParm);

	while( queryParm.qy_genParm.gp_completed == FALSE )
	    IIapi_wait( &waitParm );

	if (waitParm.wt_status != IIAPI_ST_SUCCESS)
	{
        ... handle error ...
	}

	DescrBuffer = (IIAPI_DESCRIPTOR
*)ecalloc(sizeof(IIAPI_DESCRIPTOR),1);
	setDescrParm.sd_genParm.gp_callback = NULL;
	setDescrParm.sd_genParm.gp_closure = NULL;
setDescrParm.sd_stmtHandle = stmtHandle;
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptorCount = 1; /* 	no params just
the name 
								of the
procedure */
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor = DescrBuffer;

	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor[0].ds_dataType = IIAPI_CHA_TYPE;
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor[0].ds_length = strlen(procname);
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor[0].ds_nullable = FALSE;
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor[0].ds_precision = 0;
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor[0].ds_scale = 0;
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor[0].ds_columnType = IIAPI_COL_SVCPARM;
	setDescrParm.sd_descriptor[0].ds_columnName = NULL;

      IIapi_setDescriptor( &setDescrParm );

	while( setDescrParm.sd_genParm.gp_completed == FALSE )
	    IIapi_wait( &waitParm );

	if (waitParm.wt_status != IIAPI_ST_SUCCESS)
	{
        ... handle error ...
	}

	DataBuffer = (IIAPI_DATAVALUE
*)calloc(sizeof(IIAPI_DATAVALUE),1);
	putParmParm.pp_genParm.gp_callback = NULL;
	putParmParm.pp_genParm.gp_closure = NULL;
	putParmParm.pp_stmtHandle = stmtHandle;
	putParmParm.pp_parmCount = setDescrParm.sd_descriptorCount;
	putParmParm.pp_parmData =  DataBuffer;
	putParmParm.pp_moreSegments = 0;

	putParmParm.pp_parmData[0].dv_null = FALSE;
	putParmParm.pp_parmData[0].dv_length = strlen(procname );
    	putParmParm.pp_parmData[0].dv_value = procname;
	IIapi_putParms( &putParmParm );

	while( putParmParm.pp_genParm.gp_completed == FALSE )
	    IIapi_wait( &waitParm );

	if (waitParm.wt_status != IIAPI_ST_SUCCESS)
	{
        ... handle error ...
	}

	getDescrParm.gd_genParm.gp_callback = NULL;
	getDescrParm.gd_genParm.gp_closure  = NULL;
	getDescrParm.gd_stmtHandle = stmtHandle;

	IIapi_getDescriptor(&getDescrParm);

	while( getDescrParm.gd_genParm.gp_completed == FALSE )
	    IIapi_wait( &waitParm );

	if (waitParm.wt_status != IIAPI_ST_SUCCESS)
	{
        ... handle error ...
	}
	getQInfoParm.gq_genParm.gp_callback = NULL;
	getQInfoParm.gq_genParm.gp_closure = NULL;
	getQInfoParm.gq_stmtHandle = queryParm.qy_stmtHandle;

	IIapi_getQueryInfo( &getQInfoParm );

	while( getQInfoParm.gq_genParm.gp_completed == FALSE )
	    IIapi_wait( &waitParm );

	if (waitParm.wt_status != IIAPI_ST_SUCCESS)
	{
        ... handle error ...
	}

	if ( getQInfoParm.gq_mask & IIAPI_GQ_PROCEDURE_RET )
	{
        /* we have a return value */

		returnvalue = getQInfoParm.gq_procedureReturn;

	}

Note if you want to return rows via a procedure a call to
IIapi_getQueryInfo() will destroy the row data being returned. I believe
the same is true for returning byref values in a procedure. I have not
worked out how to deal with this yet other than documenting it in big
neon letters.
