Fileman and Lab Agile Project (FLAP)

Mission Statement:

To deliver fresh, new versions of the VISTA File Manager and Lab packages to VA, IHS, and other VISTA adopters, and to renew and revitalize the VISTA software lifecycle with agile projects within OSEHRA.

Project Background:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has contributed the Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA) codebase to OSEHRA (Open Source Electronic Health Record Agent), the custodial agent that serves as the central governing body of a new open source community. VA’s adoption of open source practices enables, among other benefits, not only the sharing of VA-developed software with the community, but the sharing of community-developed software with VA. VA is implementing the internal processes required to ingest, integrate, test, and deploy software drawn from OSEHRA; doing so makes it possible for VA and the community to converge on common VistA code wherever possible and beneficial. This project served by this contract takes a significant step in converging core VistA software and enabling VA to benefit from the most current VistA enhancements.

Scope of Work:

The Contractor shall enhance the data structure management capabilities of VistA Fileman, refactor VistA Lab, and support VA in the process of deploying the improved Fileman and Lab software. The Contractor shall bring the features of the “MSC Fileman” software into the version of Fileman residing with OSEHRA and shall refactor the Lab package to move appropriate functions to the Fileman package. Working with OSEHRA and the open source community, the Contractor shall ensure that all software is incorporated into OSEHRA’s open source VistA codebase. The Contractor shall assist OSEHRA in certifying the software and shall assist VA in the process of obtaining, integrating, testing, and deploying the new Fileman and Lab packages.

Fileman 22.2 Presentation at the VCM

At the VISTA Community Meeting in Sacramento in a week and a half, I will be presenting an update about Fileman 22.2, including a preview of our plans for version 22.3 and what will probably be a lively discussion with the audience about what they would like to see in the next few versions of File Manager. We invite you to join us there.

Pictures from the OSEHRA Summit

In the spirit of "openness", I took a collection of pictures throughout the OSEHRA event, all of which are available for download at no cost.  (BTW, I have a lot of pictures of participants in addition to the speakers).

You will find them on my website at http://www.kenrubinphotography.com    Look at the "Featured" albums.

To download, select the images you like from the OSEHRA event and choose "Buy".  You will not be charged.

Comments welcomed and appreciated.

Fix for DDR2 for Fileman 22.3...

Jim Bell found a bug in the Fileman Delphi Components server side routines, where subfile entries were not correctly retrieved under certain conditions. George Timson gave me these examples: Try this in FOIA Vista: K A,SAM S A("FILE")=19,A("IENS")="9",A(" FIELDS")="10*",A("FLAGS")="E" D GETSC^DDR2(.SAM,.A) ZW SAM SAM(1)="[Data]" That's bad. Where's the 'data'?? Here how it should work: K A,SAM S A("FILE")=19,A("IENS")="9",A("FIELDS")="10*",A("FLAGS")="E" D GETSC^DDR2(.SAM,.A) ZW SAM SAM(1)="[Data]" SAM(2)="19.01^1,9^.01^^XUPROG" SAM(3)="19.01^1,9^2^^" SAM(4)="19.01^1,9^3^^25"

Fileman Code Convergence: Testing, Production, and Support

For those new to this project, File Manager version 22.2 is the flagship project for VISTA reunification, a code-convergence movement that aims to get the core of VISTA aligned across all VISTA implementations. Code convergence is on the very short list of the top strategic priorities for the VISTA community - right up there with Meaningful Use, ICD-10, and just a couple other things - because it offers the community a way to leap ahead in productivity, by reducing the amount of reinventing the wheel that goes on across all the VISTA dialects.

Re: [flap] DI*22.2*1 SEQ #1 and DI*22.2*10,001 SEQ #10,001

Will the File Man Delphi Components still work with this version of Fileman? I assume the do or the testers would have noticed something. -- Nancy Anthracite On Sunday, June 23, 2013, toad wrote: > We've been working with OSEHRA to set up the Forum patching infrastructure > we're going to use to release our patches through OSEHRA.

DI*22.2*1 SEQ #1 and DI*22.2*10,001 SEQ #10,001

We've been working with OSEHRA to set up the Forum patching infrastructure we're going to use to release our patches through OSEHRA. That is likely to take some more weeks, maybe even a month or two, to get fully ready. In the meantime, we're going to release the first patches to Fileman 22.2 independently, so we can work in parallel with the OSEHRA Forum-building work.

DI*22.2*1 SEQ #1 Unit Test Framework

Monday I start work on the first patch we will release for File Manager version 22.2: DI*22.2*1 SEQ #1, Unit Test Framework. This patch will absorb the XTMUNIT and XTMUNIT1 routines within File Manager as new routines DMUNIT and DMUNIT1, and it will modify the existing Fileman unit-test-library routines DMUDIC00, DMUDIQ00, DMUDT000, and DMUDTC00 to call DMUNIT instead of XTMUNIT.

Fileman 22.2 Security Manual DRAFT

The Fileman Security Manual is just about done. We got so much good feedback on the Getting Started Manual that I wanted to go ahead and post this here while we are still putting the finishing touches on it. So, if you have suggestions or corrections, please let us know.

We are still working on Chapter 6, and we're still building the Index. The rest of the manual should be about complete.
