InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

Now let’s enrich the contact application to include an address for each contact. As an exercise, create the application's Address class using the Studio New Caché Class Definition wizard:

Address should contain the following properties:
Property Name Type
Street %String
City %String
State %String
Zip %String
After creating the class definition, click Build–>Compile to compile the class. Then complete the following steps:
  1. Add a Home property of type ContactDB.Address to Contact. The property declaration looks like this
    Property Home As ContactDB.Address;
  2. Use Terminal to delete all of the existing Contact instances. Use the following command:
    USER>Do ##class(ContactDB.Contact).%KillExtent()
  3. Use Terminal to re-populate Contact with contacts that also have address data. Use the following command. Note that the population utility will automatically assign address data to the new contacts.
    USER>Do ##class(ContactDB.Contact).Populate(10)
