Hi Ken,

There are number of ERP packages that use PxPlus, but I don't want to show any favoritism, so I will leave it up to them to either contact you directly or perhaps post their contact information here for anybody else interested.

Now, if you are interested in developing your own application, you might want to have a look at our Webster+ "Testdrive" demo system (see https://forum1.pvxplus.com/index.php?topic=870.msg2914#msg2914).

While not a full ERP system, it has many of the components of one and we would be glad to provide the code to you or anybody else interested. 

As it is based on Webster+ it is designed to run on the Web and therefore can be run on any browser.  The host can be Windows, Linux, Mac or AIX -- heck it will even run on a Raspberry Pi if you are looking to keep cost down. 

While we did our best to make sure all the application logic is correct, we make no guarantees on the coding nor do we provide support for the application code. 

Fundamentally our goal with the application was to make sure the features we added to Webster+ both worked and were suitable to address the various needs of application development and design.  As such we included Smart queries, charts, grids, file/image uploads and downloads, even use of the Report Writer. 

With the release of v19, we will be updating the Testdrive application to include some of the newer Webster+ features such as Dynamic Wiki creation for online documentation, the Google Maps interface, and more use of the File Maintenance generator to build additional screens.

Anyway, it might be something to consider or, if nothing else, give you some ideas as to how to add Web functionality, enhancing the PxPlus application you currently work with.

Looks like a great example of what's possible!
I'm interested in knowing about the other opportunities as well.



Thank you Mike!

Ken,

Here is the link to a zip file of the demo site which includes the programs, files and pages.

https://www.pvxplus.com/downloads/misc/demosite.zip

You should be able to run the *webster/install then unzip this file over the installation directory.  When running the install we suggest you initially try the *EZWeb server and use a port such as 8080.  Once installed you should be able to run EZweb (either by the Shortcut the install program created or the shell script if on Linux).  From their you should be able to connect and access the demo application.

This has a user of Admin preset with a password of Admin1234.  You would likely need to adjust these once you have it setup.

Note the images in the demo site for people and products are copyrighted so should not be used elsewhere other than in this demo.

mike,

Thank you very much for this contribution, for days we have wanted to experiment with webster to rebuild our erp directly for the web.

so this helps us to take the first steps.
