RE: Trigger issue with authority



fixed

This is why you should make sure your trigger program actually does as little as possible. If I need to do more than a simple calculation, I will generally just have the trigger write the needed information to a dataque and have a server job listening to that dataque. That way, the jobs generating the i/o are not delayed and I can ensure that the calculations are done sequentially.

Good question. I haven't used trigger programs much, so I can't say what happens if the file is updated again while the first invocation of the trigger program is still running. However, it does seem like a bottleneck waiting to happen. What happens if you have, say, a batch job that makes hundreds of updates to the file within a few microseconds?

just on the point about the collision. Once i fix the authority issue.

If one user enters a change to the Physical file, lets call it PF1, and the trigger gets kicked off. The CL takes about 20 seconds to run. recall the CL, clears the PF used to hold latest data then re-populates via RPG prgram.

After 5 seconds another user makes a change to PF1. the trigger kicks off again, and it wants to clear the file. Which is still going to run 15 more seconds. Does the second trigger wait, those 15 seconds and then kicks off?

is there going to be any problem with this?

I much prefer the message queue idea but if the current way will work, they seem to be ok with the current way.

I had a case happen that the trigger would not run.

the trigger is on a physical file which has 2 logicals to it. I
have a
PF
that will be updated when one field in the PF changes.

When change made and trigger is invoked i run a CL program which
clears my work file and then rebuilds it via RPGLE program.

that is all the CL does, CLear and run the RPG.

But got an error CPF3137 NO Authority to clear, initialize etc.

Do I need now to change the authority on that Temp file I created?
the
current is

*PUBLIC * CHANGE

There is another way to 'clear' the table; use SQL. DELETE FROM
TABLE.
