Release 4.2.2 – Notes

My Team just released IBM FHIR Server 4.2.2. Other than the amazing things documented and released with the release tab, I learned a few things.

Replace Tags

If you need to replace tags, force it with fetch

~$ git fetch --tags -f
From github.com:IBM/FHIR
t [tag update] 4.1.0 -> 4.1.0
t [tag update] 4.2.2 -> 4.2.2

Rebuild the Validation Package

export BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE
export BUILD_VERSION=4.2.2
bash build/release/version.sh

mvn ${THREAD_COUNT} -ntp -B clean source:jar source:test-jar javadoc:jar \
install -f fhir-parent -Pfhir-validation-distribution,fhir-ig-carin-\
bb,fhir-ig-davinci-pdex-plan-net,fhir-ig-mcode,fhir-ig-us-core,deploy-\
bintray -DskipTests -pl ../fhir-ig-davinci-pdex-plan-net/,../fhir-\
validation -amd

-amd keeps the build focused only on the necessary packages (not the full fhir-parent)

Idempotent Execution of the Role Creation

su - db2inst1 -c "db2 \"connect to fhirdb\" && db2 \" BEGIN IF (SELECT ROLENAME FROM SYSCAT.ROLES WHERE ROLENAME = 'FHIRSERVER') IS NULL THEN EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'CREATE ROLE FHIRSERVER'; END IF; END;\""

su - db2inst1 -c "db2 \"connect to fhirdb\" && db2 \" BEGIN IF (SELECT ROLENAME FROM SYSCAT.ROLES WHERE ROLENAME = 'FHIRBATCH') IS NULL THEN EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'CREATE ROLE FHIRBATCH'; END IF; END;\""

Shell Pipestatus

Checking the Status of any command in a pipe, it was helpful in some automation where I had to wait on a jar to finish and check the output. Source

Command

curl -L https://google.com | grep response | tee response.txt
RC=${PIPESTATUS[1]}
echo $RC

Output

4
