Hi Arnaud,

I found an errore in SynDB.pas : for MySQL , the sql returned for table and views contain the  keyword concact instead of concat.

I'd also like if GetTableName and GetViewName function could take care of value stored in ForcedSchemaName : actually they always return tables for all schemas.

tx very much and a special greeting in this  sad period.

Sorry but , if I'm not wrong,  Z indicates that the time value is the time in Greenwich, England, or UTC time.

What I was trying to say is that the function doesn't work with simple ISO 8601 time (without date).
Is there another way to handle this ?

Hi AB,

if I try to convert an ISO8601 time expression (10:30:47.0Z), the function fails because doesn't start with an year (4 digits) but the standard allows this format.

I don't agree with the fact that as is 'well' documented this stream is only for append. There isn't any line in the SAD saying that tRawByteStringStream may not be used as any other one derived from tstream class.

Hi AB,

sorry but i don't remember how to open a ticket.

The write methof of this object doesn't work well if one want to write before the end of the buffer, changing the stream position to do it.

function TRawByteStringStream.Write(const Buffer; Count: Integer): Longint;
  if Count<=0 then
    Result := 0 else begin
    Result := Count;

I have made this change and now seems to be right.

// before 
SeltLength(fDataString,(fPosition + Result))
 if fPosition+Result > Length(fDataString) then SetLength(fDataString,(fPosition+Result));

tSynNameValue in syncommons has these two methods:

      ItemSep: AnsiChar=#10);


    function AsCSV(const KeySeparator: RawUtf8='=';

are there reasons to maintain  different default values for itemsep , or is it possible to uniform them ?

To separate logic and storage. You may use for instance a remote DB later on.

Don't create an external SQLite3 database.
TSQLRestServerDB has already a Sqlite3 engine running, and its own database: no need to use SynDB here.

Sorry but I don't understand what you are telling me. I imagine how busy you are, but could you be so kind to show me an example ?

On server side , i'm using a tSQLRestServerDB to access the data , created using two distinct approach owing to the case :

         fModel := CreateModel(aRoot);
         fProps := nil;
         if aDNS > '' then  // ODBC

              // optionally execute all external DB requests in a single thread
              AcquireExecutionMode[execORMGet] := amBackgroundORMSharedThread;
              AcquireExecutionMode[execORMWrite] := amBackgroundORMSharedThread;

it seems to work , in the sense that the tables are created, updated etc... but , when i started to use an external database i've found some issues :

using server.transactionbegin and commit or rollback doesn't work : on external database transactions are not started.
mainengineretrieve is not called : i have found in mormot.pas  :    /// overridden methods for direct sqlite3 database engine call: 
Obviously I need to override it using sqlite or external tables.

After days I've found a workaround to solve the first using fProp.Mainconnection.StartTransaction /commit/rollback for estrernal db and transactionbegin for sqlite.
But i don't know how to solve the second.

Is there anybody knowing a solution ?

I'm sorry to return to this issue , but i'm accidentally seen that the problem persists.
This is how i define the connection to a postgres db via odbc on server side:

       fProdConn := tODBCConnectionProperties.create(DNS, '',User, Pwd);
       .....  // add all table to model.
       fModel := CreateModel(HTTPRoot);    
       VirtualTableExternalRegisterAll(fModel, fProdConn);                 
       fServer := tSQLRestServerDB.create(fModel, databasename);  // databse name is the sqlite3 db.

I'm updating db only on server side via the tSQLRestServerDB (clients uses only services via interfaces).
In this example i'm changing the row ID in same tables reding from Jobs the tableindex, oldID and newID.
Every change is immediately visible in db, and even if i change commit with rollback, the db doesn't revert to old state.

fServer.TransactionBegin(tSQLCD_Queue, 1);
   Jobs := tSQLCD_Queue.CreateAndFillPrepare(fServer,'status=1 order by id', []);
      while Jobs.FillOne do
           aSQLRecordClass := fServer.Model.Tables[Jobs.TIndex];

           aSQLRecord := aSQLRecordClass.create(fServer, Jobs.OrigID);
              // erase original record
              fServer.Delete(aSQLRecordClass, Jobs.OrigID);

              // Insert with new ID
              aSQLRecord.IDValue := Jobs.NewID;
              fServer.Add(aSQLRecord, true, true, False);
	fServer.commit(1, true);
	// fServer.rollback(1);

Please say me where i'm mistaking.

Hi AB,

sorry for delay and tx very much.

Now it works, but i had to upgrade to last revision. Nothing of bad , except that now i'm encountering another problem in tSQLRestServerDB.Executelist .

This is the line that doesn't work no more on postgres DB via ODBC :

        rows := DataBase.ExecuteList([tSQLCD_Params],'select data from ' + tSQLCD_Params.SQLTableName); 

the error reported is : TODBCStatement.GetCol: "data" column had Indicator=1376

data is a blob and , debugging, i've found that the error is fired because of a modification in function GetDiagField of unit SynDbODBC, line 1848.

Before it was  :

     if ODBC.GetDiagRecW(SQL_HANDLE_STMT,StatementHandle,1,
       Sqlstate,NativeError,MessageText,1024,StringLength) = 0 then
          i := 0;
          while sqlstate[i]> #0 do
               result := result + sqlstate[i];

GetDiagRecW returned 0.
Now it is :

  if ODBC.GetDiagFieldA(SQL_HANDLE_STMT,StatementHandle,1,SQL_DIAG_SQLSTATE,
     @Status,sizeof(Status),StringLength)=0 then
    SetString(result,PAnsiChar(@Status),StringLength) else
    result := '';

The GetDiagFieldA doesn't return 0.

tSQLRestServerDB.TableMaxID only works with Sqlite db?
In postgret it returns an error : rowid column doesn't exists.

sorry for delay.

i'd like very much to use a single Database.Db instance !

A little resume.

I started project using only sqlite3 and ORM.

When I switched to ODBC , I reailized that some queries were too complex for ORM , so I introduced the TSQLDBConnectionProperties (also for Sqlite, to have a unique way to access data).

This introduced transaction and locking problems owing to the way I created the connection.

Now , thank to you, i've understood how to do it for sqlite3.

Using an external db , via ODBC , i've attempted  various ways, but I cannot resolve how to register the virtual tables before creating the ODBC connection.

Could you , please , tell me how to create the Database without creating , before, the ODBC connection on wich register the virtual tables ? I cannot solve how to do it (i always obtain exception because external engine is unknown).

Hi AB,

i'm having trouble using a connection to access database (else sqlite or external).

Certainly i'm doing something of wrong, but cannot resolve the issue, so i've reproduced this little example in which I show how i'm defininig a TSQLDBSQLite3ConnectionProperties, used to access data when queries are too complex  and a TSQLRestServerDB for ORM

Till when I don't fire a select (i.e. till when i don't use directly the connection) , all works fine, but, after the usage of a dbConn.execute, accessing data with ORM results in a unpredictable error : in this example , trying to update a blob field (only a blob) via ORM results in this error : Error SQLITE_BUSY (5) [Step] using 3.13.0 - database is locked, extended errcode=5.
Using ODBC also i've similar problems.

Coud you tell me how i should correctly define this scenario ?

in my project one can decide to use sqlite or an external db via ODBC.

On server side, to uniform db access , I create a TSQLDBSQLite3ConnectionProperties or a TODBCConnectionProperties to access data and use theirs Mainconnection to start a transaction when needed.

        if Params.ExternalDB then
             fProdConn := TODBCConnectionProperties.Create(Params.DBName, '', Params.DBUser, Params.DBPwd)
            fProdConn := TSQLDBSQLite3ConnectionProperties.Create(StringToUtf8(DataBaseName),'','','');

        fConn := fProdConn.MainConnection;

fConn is the connection used by the server to start a transaction.

The project initially used only sqlite as database, so there was no a connection, but the transactions where started via the TSQLRestServerDb.TransactionBegin, now it uses fConn.StartTransaction.

When installing , the program asks to define where host the tables, then creates and populates some of them with data , in a whole transaction : start a transaction, insert all rows and finally commit.

There are minus then one thousand rows to add and the inserting time was of few seconds using sqlite and TSQLRestServerDb.TransactionBegin.

Now , using fConn.StartTransaction , via ODBC take the same little time, but using sqlite , the inserting time results in more than two minutes and  I've noted that it continuosly creates and deletes DatabaseName.journal on disk.

Probably there is something that i'm wronging , may someone help me ? Tx.

I'm using last revision of the framework.

Hello everybody,

I switched tables from sqlite to an external db via ODBC.

A statement worked fine in the sqlite engine , but now raise an error calling tSQLRestServer.InternalAdaptSQL.

The statement is (T is  a tSQLTableJSON):

T := aRest.ExecuteList([tSQLCD_Company], 'select ID from ' + tSQLCD_Company.SQLTableName +
                                            ' where ownerco=0 or id in (select id from ' + tSQLCD_Company.SQLTableName +
                                            ' where ownerco=' + inttostr(maincompany.ID)+')');

maincompany.id is 0, so the resulting statement is
select ID from CD_Company where ownerco=0 or id in (select id from CD_Company where ownerco=0) (It seems not having a sense, but is only because the table is empty, so maincompany.id is 0 instead to be >0).

ownerco is a  tID field.

The error is raised in TSynTableStatement.Create when processing the second where condition :  id in (select id from CD_Company where Ownerco=0).

I've debugged and found that it seems dued to an unknown type for  (select id from CD_Company where ownerco=0) , but i was not able to arrange it either patching the source or finding a workaround.

May anyone help me ?

Thanks in advance

bonjour ab,

problably i'm trying to do something of wrong (as often i do), but i'd like your opinion.

i've defined an ancestor class derived from tSQLRecord : tClass1.
This class is a common ancestor for other classes : tAClass1, tBClass1 etc.
In a unit i've defined some common tasks on tClass1.

I pass to this unit instances of tAClass1, tBClass1 as a  parameter , fData (obviously defined of type tClass1) and the exact derived class type in an other parameter  fDataClass.

All works fine except that when i  do a copy of such instance in this way : fDataCopy := fData.CreateCopy as fDataClass.  On destroying it, i obtain a memory leak.

My question is : i cannot use createcopy in this a way and must define methods on each derived class, using the exact class (instead of fData of type tClass1), or the record destructor should anyway release correctly the data ?

Hi AB,

we may agree on fact that audit trail is an half DELorean : it permits to move only to the past.

In some situations i need to determine the future.

So i've thought to do a new class with

   an array storing only properties to be changed , one row for each future date.
   an EndOfValidityDate , storing the last date of validity of properties actually stored in properties.
   a StartOfValidityDate (optional)
   methods to manage them

obviously i need a OnAfterRead event on server side , to verify EndOfValidityDate and , if the case, apply pending changes. It could be fired only for classes with audit trail enabled or, also, be independent from it, but associated to the class, to avoid unneeded calls.
I've looked , without success, for it. Can you help me , please ?

No, httpserver threads end normally : remain only other unnamed threads.
Im investigating....

yes but, the unnamend threads end after one minute, non so do the httpserver worker that stay alive forever : i haven't killed the last process and they are still running.

In thread status  panel stay these threads in state runnable (while destroying form they are in statu stopped)

Main thread :
tSQLHttpServer worker : 32 threads.

sometimes there are other 3 unnnamed  threads (only id).

objects destroy order is :

Hi AB,

first of all : finally my interfaced based service works !  tx very much !!!

The server application has a main form wich ownes a tSQLRestServerDB an also a tSQLRestClientURI, created only on need : this to permit some administration customization.

All works fine but, shutting down the process , if I've created and used the interface methods from client, some threads remain active after all objects have been destroyed : consuming over a 30% of cpu resources.

When starting the program , without using the inside client, shutdown works well.

I'm in this situation because initially, the application used vcl objects and direct calls to the server : then , adding services and  permit use of your great tSQLGTableToGrid,   I've introduced the client.

I have to create two distinct program ? The server and a client for administration tasks ?

i'm confused.

i've asked you to fix my sample and not to refer to documents i've already read many an many times...

#46 Re: mORMot Framework » one to many how to » 2015-07-27 06:26:05

Hi AB,

sorry but i can't retrieve the data.

After a long period  i'm yet a beginner, so,  i've used a sample project : Sample 02 -Embedded Sqlite3 ORM with these changes :

in Sampledata :

  TSQLSampleRecord = class(TSQLRecord)
    fQuestion: RawUTF8;
    fName: RawUTF8;
    fTime: TModTime;

            fOwner : tSQLSampleRecord;   

    property Time: TModTime read fTime write fTime;
    property Name: RawUTF8 read fName write fName;
    property Question: RawUTF8 read fQuestion write fQuestion;

    	property Owner : tSQLSampleRecord read fOwner write fOwner;


In Unit1 :

procedure TForm1.AddButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
var Rec [ins], Rec1[/ins]: TSQLSampleRecord;
[ins]    Ok : Boolean;[/ins]
  Rec := TSQLSampleRecord.Create;
    // we use explicit StringToUTF8() for conversion below
    // a real application should use TLanguageFile.StringToUTF8() in mORMoti18n
    Rec.Name := StringToUTF8(NameEdit.Text);
    Rec.Question := StringToUTF8(QuestionMemo.Text);
    if Database.Add(Rec,true)=0 then
      ShowMessage('Error adding the data') else begin

             Rec.Owner := Rec;
             Database.Update(Rec, 'Owner');
             Rec := tSQLSampleRecord.Create(Database, 1);
             Rec1 := tSQLSampleRecord.CreateAndFillPrepare(Database, 'Owner=?',[Rec]);
             Ok := Rec1.Fillone;

      NameEdit.Text := '';
      QuestionMemo.Text := '';

Well : this are fields values after  Database.Update :

ID = 1 , Owner = 33247792 : I think  this is normal owing to refrerences and so on…..but , deleting database and reexecuting the code , Owner's value changes everytime, also inserting same values in name and question (???).

However : Fillone returns Ok = False.

The Sql generated by ORM is :

Select ID, Time, Name, Question, Owner from SampeRecord where Owner=:(''tSQLSampleRecord''):

So I've changed query with

Rec1 := tSQLSampleRecord.CreateAndFillPrepare(Database, 'Owner=?',[Rec.ID]);

and deleted database.

Now ID=1 and Owner = 35869232

Fillone returns OK = False.

The Sql generated by ORM is :

Select ID, Time, Name, Question, Owner from SampeRecord where Owner=:(''1''):

AB, please, don't say me to read you huge documentation or posts : at this point  we can assume that  I'm not able to understand  them !

My you correct the lines i've changed to let them  to work as expected ?

Tx very much.

I've two tsqlrecord classes : the second having the first as property.

class1 = class(tsqlrecord)
  fDescription : rawutf8;
  property Description : Rawutf8 read fDescription write fDescription;

class2 = class(tsqlrecord)
  fDescription : rawutf8;
  fOwner : class1;
  property Description : Rawutf8 read fDescription write fDescription;
  property Owner : class1 read fOwner write fOwner;

class 1 contains some owners.
class 2 contains some children for every owner.

Now i know a class1 instance (Pippo) and i want to display in a grid all class2 children whose Owner is Pippo.

If I code : (aRest is a rest client .., aTable a SQLTable ecc. .)

          aWhere := 'Owner=' + inttostr(Pippo.ID);
          aTable := aRest.List([Class2],

aTable (as I expected ) , is empty.

I've change filter in these ways :

            aWhere := 'Owner=' + inttostr(Pippo.recordreference(aRest.model));

aTable is empty.

            aWhere := 'OwnerID=' + inttostr(Pippo.ID); 

catch an sqlite exception. So do :

            aWhere := 'Owner.ID=' + inttostr(Pippo.ID); 

Please , may you help me to do this SIMPLE query ?

Tx very much.

Hy Ab,

you are right !
I hope it's due to this oppressive heat and not to age....

#49 Re: mORMot Framework » changed properties » 2015-07-14 08:45:44

Hy Arnaud,

After a while....

I've changed in mormot tSQLRestClient.BeforeUpdateEvent (and related calls and update methods to eliminate const from CustomFields)


    function BeforeUpdateEvent(Value: TSQLRecord): Boolean; virtual;


    function BeforeUpdateEvent(Value: TSQLRecord; Var CustomFields : tSQLFieldBits): Boolean; virtual;

then i have overriden the method in my own tSQLRestClient :

function TMySQLRestClient.BeforeUpdateEvent(Value: TSQLRecord; Var CustomFields : tSQLFieldBits): Boolean;
var I : integer;
    Empty : Boolean;
    OldData : tSQLRecord;
    ChgFields : tSQLFieldBits;
     OldData := Value.RecordClass.Create(Self, Value);
        ChgFields := CustomFields;
        Empty := IsZero(CustomFields);
        CustomFields := [];
        Result := false;
        with Value.RecordProps do
             for I := 0 to high(SimpleFields) do
               // compare not TSQLRawBlob/TSQLRecordMany fields
                  with SimpleFields[ I] do
                       if Empty or (I in ChgFields) then
                          if CompareValue(Value, OldData, false)<>0 then
                               include(customfields, I);
                               result := true;

Obviously, could be implemented on clients but  so, i don't lock data from clients when reading first and save some bandwidth when reading data before update.
Do you think that could be implemented in mormot ?
