Invoking Cordys method from WCP in Baan

Has anyone had any experience sending a Cordys SOAP request from within Baan code to the WCP Gateway? I'm doing it exactly like their documentation says to but get the message "Couldnt invoke the method in JVM."

Baan: 2.2, 3.1, b40, b50, b51, ERP LN FP3, ERP LN FP7, ERP LN 10.2.1 - DB: ALL - OS: ALL
Hi Steve,

It would be helpfull to know what version of Cordys you are using?
Do you use BCP 4.1 or perhaps one of the Cordys WCP versions?
Also whether the Cordys Business Application Connector for BAAN is being used as well.

Regards,

Edwin

Thumbs up classpath problem

Hi,
IT's because of classpath problem. CBACServer.jar which comes with Cordys BAC - for Baan is not in the classpath. Set this to classpath. Everything will go right.

Not supported

Heard that Cordys is using illegal non supported interfaces towards Baan. So, why should I buy this stuff ?

Smile No

It uses only the features which Baan exposes. It doesnt use any illegal interface as far as my knowledge goes. So start using it instead of getting confused :-)

Hey hdruiter,
I took this name because my normal name was already in use. Normally I only watch and read the discussions, but now I wanted to react as I see big risks for customers. Let me explain.

I work for a big consulting group and evaluated Cordys and OpenWorldX. My customer wanted to have a deep and native integration and the only ones that have that is Baan/SSA. They can change, enhance, build interfaces to make their product better. Integrating from the outside is painfull and complex. In most case you hit private interfaces which can change without any notice of the software vendor. My customer found that a big risk, and they started to implement OpenWorldX (they are up and running right now).

Using a tools like Cordys brings these kind of risks also, because Cordys is not a certified or known Baan partner like for example Crystal reports (BO). Baan did a joint development together with Crystal to build the integration. In that case the integration product is supported. They also integrate deeply into the product.

I am also not interested in the invitation as I saw already demo's and worked with a trial version (or was it a job offer?). As I have a deep technical knowledge about interfacing to Baan, I checked the Cordys to Baan integration and was not very impressed by the way of integration. Even worse, I think that some of the interfaces that are used are outdated and work only with old portingsets. They are also not documented in the public developer manuals but only in the internal developer manuals (yes!, I am lucky and have got the internal developers manual, but I program only with the public interfaces). So, when you do not use public interfaces you will run into big big trouble. That was also the conclusion of my customer.

Steve

Exclamation Pls be more specific

Hi Steve,
Could you tell what kind of illegal interfaces that are used in Cordys? It will be nice if you are more specific while quoting something. Also let me know what you mean by old porting set(i mean in numbers) and what u mean by new porting set?

Regards,

is this really true?

Hi steve,

is this really true? I was engaging a customer yesterday (staying a couple of months in EMEA) and they were interested in Cordys, but if this type of integration will not be supported I need be fair to the customer and maybe redirect them to OpenWorldX.

will wait for your answer!
