Have just been investigating using PROIV Gateway to provide access to PROIV via web services. But has anyone done any work with PROIV actually calling external web services? If you have how have you set this up?

Hi Mattcarr,


We have developed lots of PROIV task and bus web services using JAVA as a client.We are looking forward to take you through the PROIV and JAVA web services for PROIV version 6 AND 7.I would recommend you to look at what is PROIV's intention for the future,we have written RESTFul web services on PROIV version 8.We have invested our time on developing RESTFul WS and about to convert our B&Ts WS to RESTFul(ness).

PROIV - The Future

PROIV - The Future


The PROIV framework allows us to create and deploy massively diverse business applications on a wide range of user platforms and databases. Indeed, you the champions of PROIV, have built an extensive set of applications covering a wide range of business areas, including enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management, financials, telecoms and logistics to name but a few.

When planning the direction and future major releases of PROIV we consider many aspects including your feedback, product enhancement requests, our vision and the major analystís software industry trends and expectations.

Over the last couple of years the application software landscape has changed dramatically, we have seen the unstoppable juggernaut of tablet based applications continue to roll on and gain even further traction. Couple this with the continued industry trends towards the Internet Of Things and increased Application to Application communication it is clear that PROIV based applications need to be able to participate in architectures of these types.

Indeed many you have asked us exactly this question; how can our PROIV application coexist and work with applications developed and deployed in other technology stacks?

With PROIV Version 6 we introduced PROIV Web Services, a mechanism for exposing PROIV tasks in a standard SOAP interface, whilst this worked well, since then we have seen the wider adoption of REST as the preferred method. Also, our historical SOAP implementation was limited to exposing PROIV as a service provider and it did nothing to assist in consuming third party SOAP services or processing the structured data which is often found in a web service. To take PROIV forward and ensure it can easily participate in solutions that include mobile and tablet deployments we were keen to address this.

I am very pleased to announce that as part of the forthcoming version 8 product, one of the items we will be focussing on will be support for bidirectional RESTful services and providing mechanisms for processing structured data within PROIV. This is a very exciting development for us and a major step forward in the evolution of the product. Not only will it increase the integration opportunities for our PROIV applications allowing them to be utilised from many other devices and systems, but will also greatly enrich the core language by introducing new constructs and techniques for processing data.

Over the coming weeks there will be further more detailed announcements regarding version 8 and its content, watch out for newsletters and product webinars for further details.

Under correction:-

"we have written RESTFul web services on PROIV version 8" - we have written RESTFul web services in JAVA ready for PROIV version 8.

We use web services extensively and have written our own SSO which lets us call web services from other applications. These include Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. We have the SSO working with both Pro-IV Version 6.2 and Pro-IV Version 7.1.
