In Topic: Best method for remote connections to proiv

Yes, our original thought was to use our current applications over the web but the more I've been reading, I guess it's not as easy as that.

Thanks for clearing it up for me!

Thanks for you replies Donald & Tony!

I'm surprised that I didn't get any other suggestions than the Web Client.

I'm obviously missing something since there has to be other methods. Maybe it's because I really only know Proiv and not java?!?!

I see a lot of questions related to java and using bus & task so I'm wondering if most web apps have written their own java interfaces.

Or is everyone using Concerto?

As my questions show, I'm a newbie to the whole web application area so I'm just looking for suggestions on what path to follow.

In Topic: Print to file directory in Linux 5.5

FYI.....(from Milo @ proivsupport)....

"This is a known issue on Linux systems. The Linux system calls handle temporary directories differently than other UNIX systems, causing the PROIV environment settings to be ignored. Because of this difference all temporary files are created in the ‘current working directory’.

The only workaround is to make the ‘current working directory’ the directory name of where the reports should be written. Unfortunately, changing the ‘current working directory’ may have other unwanted side effects, depending upon the PROIV application running. The ‘current working directory’ can only be set prior to starting the ‘pro’ executable. It cannot be changed after ‘pro’ has started.

PROIV Development has a proposed fix submitted for this issue but is currently not available in a 5.5 Linux release. The fix name is: “L083 sort files on Linux not created in PROTEMP”. It should be available in the next 5.5 maintenance release. The fix will require the PROIV environment variable PROTEMP and the Linux system variable TMPDIR to point to the same directory. I don’t have a scheduled date for the next 5.5 maintenance release."

I thought I had set that but I guess not because that was the problem.

Thanks a lot for the help!
