Web Services / Re: *plus/web/request with Proxy server
« on: January 27, 2023, 11:45:51 AM »
I'm by no means an expert on the matter, but I do use request program all the time.  For the most part in stock form, it does a good job.  You can open this program and adjust it or a copy.  I had a case where I had to pull images from a remote site and request didn't quite work right with the expected payload, so I made a very small adjustment to the code and it's been flawless.  In another case, I wanted more details like timing and raw data being sent/received, so I added a log file; which turned out to be very help full.
I'm not sure about proxy details, but if this information needs to be included in the HTTP header, check out the "extrahdrs$" field.  I have to use this from time to time if certain credentials need to be passed to the server.

Thanks Mike! 

I read about the Linux tool, but didn't know there may be a Windows version.  Very cool.

This is more of an FYI for some information I came across while researching QR Code generation. 

Someone I know used the Google tool do the generation.


Obvious, but an internet connection would be required too.

Registration and Setup / Re: Moving PxPlus License key
« on: February 10, 2022, 10:32:16 AM »
I did what Mike (in Markham) mentioned and everything worked better than expected (koodo's on that upgrade).
Our old system died and we had to move the app to our backup box (yes, we purchased a spare key).  Once our new server was delivered, we installed/setup the new server and applied the same license key used by the defunct  server.  We assumed the license key was automatically picked up by the PxPlus license server and all was good.  It's been running for a couple months now and no issues.  The reason for my initial post, was back in the day, we'd have to call in the license move to PxPlus support and they would have to manually delete the (same) license key on their end.

Registration and Setup / Moving PxPlus License key
« on: November 30, 2021, 10:05:42 AM »
Well, last week I received a call from a client who's old server (Windows 7pro actually) finally gave up the ghost and my application was off line.  We quickly moved them over to the onsite backup dev. box and we were back in business that same morning.  A new Dell Server (1u, Windows server 2019) is on order and with any luck Santa's elves will have it done by Christmas.

Is there an automated process, much like the license registration process, where someone can simply de-register a license key from one (decommissioned) system and apply it to a new computer.   In the past we've had to call this into support @ Pvx Plus.  Some one would delete the registration at their end and we could then register the existing license key on a new box.

License is for: PxPlus 2017 - e-Comm (Windows).


A couple of suggestions to help with processing speed when dealing with programs that deal with lots of disk IO.  For temporary files where I need to constantly read a file (or write small output), I like to use memory file(s) (*memory*).  On the hardware side, we've installed SSD drives where there is a lot of disk IO - we've found a factor of 10 times faster processing than systems that use SATA hard drives.  In most cases the SSD drive is temporary storage.

Programming / Error trapping
« on: September 16, 2019, 10:53:27 AM »
I want to trap and report back any error set in PxPlus to a calling program (DOS batch file in this case).  This installation is a Windows Server 2012 with PxPlus 11.50 (base).

PxPlus is initiated in a batch file as follows:

echo off
echo We are in the batch file
echo Before: %errorlevel%
echo After: %errorlevel%

My sample PxPlus program simply generates an error (Divide by zero)
0010 CLEAR
0020 SETERR 0080
0030 PRINT "Hello World..."
0050 LET A=2/0
0060 PRINT "ok..."
0065 WAIT 1
0070 END
0080 PRINT "oops..."
0085 WAIT 1
0090 END

Removing line 20 make no difference for me in this case.  Pxplus program will crash hard and return back to the batch file.  In both cases the %errorlevel% variable is still set to 0.

The end game is to inform the batch file there was a problem with the PxPlus program.  This is for an automated process and we're simply looking for a way to know if the test.pxp program generated an error or ran clean.
TIA, Bruno.

Off Topic / RETS Server development
« on: January 27, 2019, 12:44:19 PM »
I'm looking for someone who has worked with RETS (Real Estate Transaction Standard). Specifically, written server software with PvxPlus (eComm/Windows). 

I'm using PvxPlus's webserver (eComm license) to front end a private RETS server.  I'm looking for help with Getobject (to send image requests) to client requests.  I can send one image, but having issues filling multi-image requests.  On the client side, I'm using RETSConnector as a test client (there are other options). 

If the above sounds familiar, we should have a discussion.
