No need of any installation of BCK

Hi,
There is no need of any installation of BCK(BaaN connect Kit) which will help in developing a BOI.
You can go forward writing AFS without it.
Regards,

AFS is Application Function Server. You can download the document and read on this programming technique.

AFS

The Application function server (or - to be precise: the Baan DLL ttstpapihand) is basically a remote control for Baan Sessions.

You have to write code (programming!) to access those functions. Within that code you can for example:
Open the session "Maintain Supplier Invoice"
Put the value "123423" into the field supplier number,
Put the value "1000,-" into the field value
"Press" the continue button
Put the field "990000" into the field "Account" of the opening subsession
Leeave the sesion again.

So you basically let a software program do what normally a user does with the session. The session never really "opens" on the user screen, but Baan behaves as it would have been and a user would have typed in all the values. So you get the complete application functionality by this. Terminology for this is: To run that session in "Api-Mode".

That is the basic technique. Now, above that basic level, there is a higher level access method:

With DLL ttstpcreatdll you can create a DLL for a session that maps that basic functions (where you use the field name as a method parameter) into a DLL where you have a seperate function for each field (so instead of saying ttstpapi.put.field ("tiitm001.item", "112345") you are now saying mydll.put.field.tiitm001.item ("1112345"). That's not really a great step.
However, from the terminology, I think that is what Baan actually calls the "Application Function Server": A sperate DLL for each session you want to control remotely.

Hope that clarifies that part a bit.
