Organize Using

Posted by Thomas Mercer-Hursh on 13-Jun-2015 14:24

Having been reminded of Organize Using by a session at PCA, I thought I would give it a try in some code I am working on that uses Proparse, i.e., it has assemblies.  When I did Organize Using, all the references to the Proparse components went away!  I had picked Group All, Sort alphabetically, Qualified Type Names, and from Assembly/Propath.  I did not have Preserve valid checked because one of the points of trying to use it was that it would eliminate unused ones.

Seems anti-useful.

You should be a little bit more precise in the using you had before and which usings got lost …
 
And log that as a bug. Just ranting here is not going to make it better.
 
Organize usings works well for me generally though.

Before:

using Progress.Lang.*.

using com.cintegrity.Proparse.SetEnvironment.

using com.cintegrity.Proparse.SetSchemaFromFile.

using com.joanju.proparse.NodeTypes from assembly.

using com.joanju.proparse.ProParserTokenTypes from assembly.

using org.prorefactor.core.JPNode from assembly.

using org.prorefactor.core.TreeUtils from assembly.

using org.prorefactor.treeparser.ParseUnit from assembly.

using org.prorefactor.treeparser.Symbol from assembly.

After:

using Progress.Lang.AppError from propath.

using com.cintegrity.Proparse.SetEnvironment from propath.

using com.cintegrity.Proparse.SetSchemaFromFile from propath.

Thank goodness for Ctrl-Z

My "ranting" here is an effort to get a handle on whether this is generally a problem or whether it might be specific to Proparse or IKVM.

I've had Organize Using add USINGs that didn't apply as well.

My practice has been to delete them as they've been generally harmless.

So you are saying it removed USING’s that are needed by your code? How does that code look like?

Posted by Thomas Mercer-Hursh on 13-Jun-2015 15:19

Correct, it removed all usings related to Proparse.

Code includes things like:

      mobJavaFile = new java.io.File(mchFullPath).
      obParseUnit = new ParseUnit(mobJavaFile).
      obParseUnit:treeParser01().
      mobNode = obParseUnit:getTopNode().   

and

    define variable mobSymbol as class Symbol no-undo.
    
    if NodeTypes:getTypeName(ipobNode:getType()) = "ID"
    then mobSymbol = ipobNode:getSymbol().
        
    put stream stOutput unformatted
      skip
      fill(" ",inCurrentIndent)
      NodeTypes:getTypeName(ipobNode:getType()) 
      "    "
      ipobNode:getText()
      .
    if lgShowProparseDirectives then put stream stOutput unformatted  "    " ipobNode:attrGetS("proparsedirective":U).
    if lgShowSourceLineNo or lgShowColumn then put stream stOutput unformatted  "    " string(ipobNode:getLine()).
    if lgShowColumn then put stream stOutput unformatted  ":" string(ipobNode:getLine()).
    if lgShowSourceFileName then put stream stOutput unformatted  "    " ipobNode:getFilename().
    if lgShowTableType then put stream stOutput unformatted  "    " ipobNode:attrGetS("storetype":U).
    if lgShowStatementHeadFlag and ipobNode:isStateHead() then put stream stOutput unformatted  "    statehead".
    if lgShowSecondaryKeyword then put stream stOutput unformatted  "    " ipobNode:getState2().
    if lgShowSymbols and NodeTypes:getTypeName(ipobNode:getType()) = "ID" and valid-object(mobSymbol)
    then put stream stOutput unformatted  "    Reads: " mobSymbol:getNumReads() " Writes: " mobSymbol:getNumWrites().

Case opened

Posted by Thomas Mercer-Hursh on 24-Jun-2015 13:49

Bug recognized as PSC00335347

Posted by Thomas Mercer-Hursh on 16-Jul-2015 16:24

Question:  Does Organize Using work generally for .NET classes or is it broken for anything outside of ABL?  If it works for .NET generally, then I am wondering if the the issue was that the .NET classes I was working with were created with IKVD.

Tim, did you report the cases where you got spurious usings?

A tool like this is immensely less useful if one can't trust it.

Posted by Tim Kuehn on 16-Jul-2015 16:35
I've been running 11.5 and 11.5.1 and haven't had problems with the
tool dragging inappropriate USINGs in.

In that case it must've been the class lookup / add USING
package.class. functionality that was causing the problem because I
know I haven't seen the issue in 11.5.

There are a few niggles I've found that I'm sharing as gotchas. Specifically, if you use the ABL GUID function, a USING System.Guid is added without prompting you for a choice (logged as PSC00325274). In general, I've seen issues where there are classes that match ABL keywords.

One I saw repeatedly was an OE "string" USING being added with no
corresponding reference in the code.

Unless it was confusing STRING(IntegerVar) with a OE.Something.String.

So, Peter, your impression is that mostly it works, but has a few burps where it adds USING statements that are unnecessary and inappropriate?  Including references to .NET assemblies?  I.e., my problem of having all appropriate USINGs for .NET assemblies built with IKVD disappear is an isolated problem?

I am trying to help out the support engineer by defining a box.

Posted by Peter Judge on 17-Jul-2015 09:54
More-or-less, although I think it's less an issue with .Net assemblies, and more an issue with the fact that there might be classes that have the same names as ABL keywords.
 
You can reference Frank's post too in your conversations with the TSE.

Post and thread referenced.  I would say there are two very different issues.  One is that it is finding keywords that could be classes, but aren't and failing to recognize that they are, it creates a USING.  The other, my case, is that for some reason it is having a problem finding the referenced class and so failing to create (or even preserve) a USING when on its needed.  Both seem to be failures of the syntax analysis - the one failing to notice that something is not an external class and the other failing to make the connection, even though the compiler does just fine.

We have two defects filed one is PSC00335347 and another one is PSC00325274 - both of them PSC Dev are working on.

Posted by Thomas Mercer-Hursh on 29-Jul-2015 09:33

Specifically,

PSC00335347 - Organize using is causing all Proparse usings to disappear.

PSC00325274 - Organize USINGs for ABL guid function adds System.Guid - USING System.Guid.

Posted by Thomas Mercer-Hursh on 05-Aug-2015 10:49

Per tech support

The fix for this issue is expected to be in the upcoming release OpenEdge 11.6. As of 04 August 2015, release 11.6 is scheduled to be released in Q4 2015, although dates and content of the release are subject to change.
