Hi Dave,

 

Yes, it can EASILY be done, you need your JAVA development to just QUEUE requests and process the files sequentially.

 

I would be delighted to continue this off-line if you like.

Thanks for the offer Kevin. Unfortunately queuing requests is not acceptable for a (multi-user) web-based system so I guess we'll stick with OLE-DB.

 

Kind regards,

Dave.

Crumbs Dave - of course you are 100% correct - insofar as you are only intending to READ data from ACT, ACTOLEDB will be the best answer with PHP. No question about it.

 

FWIW - it may be a devil of a lot faster though, to squirt the data from ACT into MySQL on a regular timed basis (as ACTOLEDB is jolly slow and has a tendancy to time-out on occasion) and create a nice direct link using ODBC in your PHP instead.

 

Then you could (as needs and wants change in the future) permit comments or additional data to be added to your MySQL tables for subsequent updating into ACT and/or your other system(s).

 

Good luck!

Feedback MiddleWare does not require Premium - Works on ACT Standard Edition

 

OK Folks - I have some feedback.

 

I am now given to understand that MiddleWare SDK for ACT by Sage does NOT require Premium -and it has been run successfully under ACT STANDARD. (2008 Version 10).

 

Best regards,
Kevin

Hmmm - you know what - if somebody has a standard version and could try that out - it sure would be neat to know.

 

I guess it should work.

 

Every single PC that can actually run ACT in our network and on ALL of the laptops - we have Premium installed.

 

And although we could uninstall premium and install the cheaper version - I always feel that the PC is no longer a "Virgin" and some enabling stuff may have been left behind.

 

Do you happen to have the standard (non Premium) version on any PC Yan?

 

If so - feedback would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,
kevin

The LATEST version of Middleware now works with Act! 2010 and above.

 

It is fully documented and tested to Act! Version 2014.

 

It is still Royalty-Free, and can be downloaded from http://MiddlewareSDK.com

 

No registration is required.

 

Kind regards,

Kevin

Hi Kevin,
I just put the .net v4 version middleware.dll into the Plugins dir of 2 computers and restarted Act! 16.
Then I created the %temp%\v8software\ directory and issued a simple command like CPAD into JobControl.txt 

On neither of the 2 systems this command seems to be followed up. Nothing's seems to be happening. How so?

On 1 system I tried to delete middleware.dll while Act! was active, but access was denied.

Hi Peter,

 

You should not need to create the V8Software folder.  If you do, then it is not one that Middleware is using :-)

 

When Act! Starts... it runs Middleware.dll

 

If you cannot delete that DLL - then clearly it is running.

 

Which means that it has created the V8Software folder somewhere.

 

By default, it will be in the CURRENT WINDOWS USERS temp folder.

 

If you cannot see it, then might I suggest that you do a Windows Search for V8Software.

 

BTW... you *MAY* have to turn off the User Control or Run Act! as Administrator to enable it.

 

Please feel free to email me at Support@V8Software.com Peter

 

Cheers,

Kevin
