I cannot comment on the intrinsic merits of BOBS but I am very happy to see a Baan add-on being released as Open Source Software! Well done Carlos!

Thank you Patrick.

I hope many people use BOBS to help their companies and they help to optimize BOBS too.

Note. If your have tested BOBS, i would like to hear from your experience, just drop me an email to carlos.kassab AT gmail dot com


Thank you

Carlos,

First of all let me congratulate you for your efforts in writing a open source connectivity for BaaN.

I downloaded your zip files (both binaries and source) and extracted the binary files and followed your instructions in the BOBSFAQ.html file. Now, when I try to start the BOBS server (BaaNOleBrokerServer.exe) I get the following error.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Files\Baan\lib\user\baantwobsp.bwc Configuration file not found. Please verify the correct file name.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know that I have the baantwobsp.bwc file (which is the default) in the “c:\Program Files\Baan\lib\user” folder. I have double checked it. Not sure what the problem is.

Thanks,
NS

r_nagu,

Thank you for your congratulations i hope more people use it and help BOBS to have more features.

I think the problem is that you installed the baan client in "Program Files", please install baan client in c:\baan or any other folder that does not have blank spaces. I have seen some different problems when you install baan client in a folder with blank spaces.

And please, let me know if it resolved your problem.

Thanks for getting back.

I uninstalled BW client and installed it under C:\Baan. Now when I try to start the BOBS server, I get the following error message:

-------------------------------------------------------
Can not start BaaN Ole Broker Service:
The requested address is not valid in its context
-------------------------------------------------------

Thanks,

More than one client connections

Hello,

we are planning to use BOBS with an e-Commerce site and it should be possible to communicate with different back-end systems based on Baan. BOBS uses the default client connection. Is it possible in some way to select a different connection at run-time with no user interaction? This would perfectly cover our needs...

Thanks for replies

Try to specify here:

BaanIVObj = new Baan4.Baan4Class();

or

BaanVObj = new Baan.BwCOleAutomationServerClass();

At the the moment i do not have access to a testing environment.

Please post your results in this forum.

Regards

bobstest.end()

Hi Carlos,

Can you please explain in a few words, what are the next few rows for?

private void open_connection()
{
String ClientID = "otdslsdllbobsts|bobstest.end( )|" + DateTime.Now + "\r\n";
// The firs part(before the first pipe) is the dll name, in the midle is the end function when running
// an API session, and at the end, just the time


I assume bobstest.end( ) is a dll function, which should exist in Baan, in dll tdslsdllbobsts. But what is it for, and why it is necessary to build up the connection? Can it be left out, and build up connection without this function.

Kind regards,
Gabor

Carlos,

Will your broker for BAAN also work with INFOR Open SOA?
Your open source solution may become very popular among BAAN customers because in the next 12 - 24 months INFOR is going to put a lot of emphasis on their Open SOA initiative to expose all of their products and integrate them seamlessly via a middleware platform.

Good work by the way!

Hi Edwin,

I would want to have information of infor open SOA to know how to integrate BOBS with infor open SOA.

Do you have some information that could help me?.

Thank you in advance for your response.

It is because you do not have created the dll tdslsdllbobsts
