Re: World of Watson 2016

Jim:

Sorry I missed you among the 20K or so people! I saw Mr. Waters a few times, but that was about the only familiar non-IBM'er face I saw.

Re: Insight 2015

Hi Jim:

I didn't realize you had to be at the booth both days - that's rough! If you need rescuing or especially refreshments (we'll have cotton candy at the QueBIT booth) let me know. I'll be happy to "buy" you a beer during one of the expo receptions.

Regards,

Re: TM1 SDK JavaExtensions ( Any early adopters )

In general, because you have access to nearly all TI functions in Java Extensions you should not need to access other TM1 APIs, whether it be the TM1 Java API or new REST API, from Java Extensions. Java Extensions are still quite powerful, but I don't think are meant to replace TI process writing a...

Re: TM1 SDK JavaExtensions ( Any early adopters )

Hi Uchow10: First, I don't think the description of Java Extensions on the IBM DeveloperWorks site is accurate: "Most TurboIntegrator functions are supported in Java and can be used like any other Java method. You can create TurboIntegrator processes with Java and use Java’s libraries to further exp...

Re: Automation of Currency data from the open source into TM

As Macsir says there is likely some programming involved here - the data you're looking for can likely be extracted from the web pages you're currently using or through other web services that provide this data.

Re: CAFE and Cognos Express

I've asked this a few times at the Vision conference and the consistent answer is that CAFE is currently not included with Cognos Express.

Re: C/C++ API Function Question

Hi Firefly007: No, I don't know of an alternative. As I said below, this function has been around since 2000, but has never been officially documented by Applix, Cognos and now IBM. Why they haven't documented it is beyond me, but you should be able to use it to disconnect all clients (one at a time...

Hi Laurent: I don't think IBM officially says anywhere in their MDX support documentation that they officially support the available commenting options in the MDX language , but based on what you've found it looks like they might support at least the "--" style commenting (at least in 10.2). You can...

Re: Help for API fuction TM1CubeCellValueGet

Hi: First, if you're doing this from VBA then why go to the trouble of using TM1CubeCellValueGet? Just call TM1's DBR function as noted below as it is much safer and easier in VBA - you're reinventing the wheel if you use TM1CubeCellValueGet from VBA. If this is not in VBA where you must use TM1Cube...

Re: How can I run TM1 ver 2.5 on Windows 7???

Hi All: Agreed with other commenters on the only possibility of running Perspectives 2.5 with Windows 7 being through VMs, and even that's not ideal given the age of that release. Perspectives 2.5 and Server 6.0 were the first releases I started using back in 1997 (both Rev D, I think). What a blast...
