Baan is diversing it's client interface.

What Client interface do you use (for yourself and/or within your site) to connect to your BaaN bshell process on the server?

OmeLuuk,

You should have enabled the multiple options when creating the poll. I don't if you can still edit the poll - if not can one of the forum moderators do that please. That is because at our site we use three of the interfaces mentioned.

Baan: none (B40c4 was last) - DB: Oracle - OS: Linux (RHEL)
Wrong data from poll

Yep, the results will not reflect the daily usage though: I use 98% of the time the ba6.1 and then the remaining with BW-m.
Now, if I choose both, then looks like I use 50% each... Look like there are no perfect pools

Well Victor, use GTM too to over ride BaaNBoard logic

I have been laughing a while when read that GTM comment.

Maybe I'm with some Friday's night beers. Or Not?

The problem is that I have voted yet, so Can I change my vote to introduce more options?

Thanks

Pat:
Thank you, I have voted again in this poll with more than one option.

OmeLuuk:
I have voted seriously. Good Poll.
Sometimes things do not work in the same direction depending on the interface used. There are some patches specific for BA interface or for BW, etc..

So this is another variable when problems comes. Specially depending on BW version used.

Wink No version conflicts

There are no version conflicts between different BW's or different BA's, always use the latest version

I did however find a problem with the gui. It was solved long way back in bw, but still exists in bx. Both are gui, so within programscripts they are handled the same. In the standard program however they are absolutely different. But as the poll stands now: the bx interface is hardly used.

The perfect poll: it would be uploading your VST info and more, because client information is not included. Might be an idea for Patrick - to have a more clear view on his public for reasons of fund raising. ( I do not mean this serious )

About the 50% each: I only could use 10 posibilities. Otherwise I would have made it 2D - first and second choice. I assume most of the developers use ASCII for building and Gui just for testing. However, for me the use of gvim.exe (Graphical VI Improved with code highlighting for BaanTools, http://www.vim.org) made the difference: at that time I switched to the desktop interface. But that was in the past.

Polls like these do tend to age. A similar poll had been done in the past. But as time passes, a shift will be seen towards bw for reasons of MS taking over the world and ERP eliminiating ba.

ba6.2?

Mmm, here's an idea for discussion: I wonder how hard it would be write an open-source terminal-based client for BaanERP?

There is a ba6.2. Just login as root and start
Code:
ba6.2 ttaad4100
(login as root is needed to eliminate the password popup which ba6.2 cannot handle).

Also other pure asci based sessions do run.

I am afraid the option -- -set GUI=ASCII is not sufficient to run all in ASCII.

Lucas,

I know about the ba6.2 and have used it before for GTM reasons. I really meant a full client like it's older relative 'ba6.1'.

Thanks for the tips anyway. I am sure they will be new to some poeple!

Always up for a challenge

Although it kinda feels like building an Atari simulator so you can play the original break-out on your 100Mhz machine.

Mind you, with Triton 2.nothing on my resume, I share your melancholic remeniscense of days past, but would it really be an asset to the BaanERP community?

Rebuilding ba6.1 for Baan ERP would require knowledge of the complete Baan protocol. I don't see a proper way to reverse engineer that part, but maybe a touch of 'hack-in-the-box' would go a long way.

However, if we do manage to obtain this info (come to think of it, maybe Baan will give it to us if we ask real nice), then why build ba6.2??

Doesn't bshell6.2 leave anything left to desire?

That is true, We obvious do not want to loose Microsoft Products On The DeskTop either...

Still wondering when Baan will come with an All Linux version for Client and Server.

That depends on who you're asking.

But yea, there's been enough talk about it. How about a Linux client? Or a palm one? Or a full web based one?

I've been giving some thought to the question I raised earlier and I think that my definition of the ideal BW would be totaly different from it's current format (of course going from an admininstrator's perspective).

Maybe food for an interesting discussion, so let me kick it off...

1. My ideal client would have a fixed menu structure (so it doesn't take 5 minutes to search for a session). Custom sessions need to be added on the client, rather than on the server.
2. All objects in the client would be modifyable by accessing their properties directly.
3. It would allow me to jump between companies and VRC's without hassle (there's a challenge).
4. It would give me more (well, any) system administration options.

There, just a couple off the cuff. Who's next?
