API Handler accessing baan sessions outside baan
we are in the process of automating retail to baan back-office.
we opted for AFS DLLS using "ttstpcreatdll", which has #pragma used dll ottdtpapihand.
well while as per baan, the definitions are:
AFS-DLL : A Baan DLL, which contains the calls to the API-handler for a specific Baan 4GL application session
API : Application Program Interface
API-handler : The program, which serves outside application to call the functionality of the Baan 4GL application sessions.
CAN WE ACCESS THESE BAAN SESSIONS AFS functions from outside baan, say from VB. Because it says here API Handler is a program, which serves outside application to call the functionality of Baan 4GL application sessions.
Simply I wan to create a sales order from outside baan using these created DLLs of session tdsls4101m000.
Has anyone attempted calling these fucntions outside baan using baan created dlls, OR the API Handler. How it is done pls, ur info will help.
