Working without BAAN source code
By tapzho at 23 Jul 2008 - 15:11

Dear All

We have a received a drirective from Infor to pay a colossal amount of money for source code. We can't afford the money and need to start planning to work live without source code. I need to know if there is anyone who has been affected by this directive. How have you managed to live without source code.


 Let me have your experiences out there !




Slow Data Uploading through bdbpost because of two oracle instances
By Gagandeep at 10 Jul 2008 - 00:29


We are using Baan 4c4 on Unix/Oracle9.2 and two companies with two different instances. The rate at which data is uploaded to Baan Database is quite slow (almost double time taken, when the same data is loaded on same setup with one instance). The two Oracle instances are having the similar configuration.

Can anyone please explain what are the parameters etc, if any, that needs to be set for such a setup.


User Setup
By aceituna at 3 Jun 2008 - 14:36


In the current Baan setup, a user has several user names for each company they login too. How do I change it such that each user can have one username and be able to log into several companies.

Start session on logon
By felix.noel at 2 Jun 2008 - 18:26

Hi all,

I think it's possible to set a session to run when a user log in to BaaN. But I don't know how to do this.

Could someone help me?




How do I apply for a job?
By patvdv at 18 May 2008 - 16:47

Only registered users may apply for posted jobs. You can use the following methods to apply for a job:


  1. click on the Apply for this job link at the bottom of the job page. This will automatically inform the recruiter via e-mail that you have expressed an interest in the job. It is then up the recruiter to contact you either via the site or directly. The recruiter will be able to track your job application in his own Job applications screen, see My Baanboard > My Job Applications.
  2. reply to the job posting via the Add comment option at the bottom of the job page.
  3. use the contact details specified in the job posting to directly contact the recruiter (i.e. via e-mail, phone, ...)


Note that baanboard does not guarantee that the owner of a job posting you applied for (i.e. the recruiter) will actually contact you. Baanboard will only inform the recruiter of your potential interest.


Creating Oracle roles manually
By Markus Schmitz at 18 Apr 2008 - 16:47

You can create all needed users/roles manually, but you have to keep the same passwords, because you have only one ora_users file for all databases.


Here we go:


1) You need to create the schema owner. In Unix this is normally baan and in NT often baandb:

create user baan identified by xyz;
grant ressource to baan;
grant connect to baan;


2) You need to create the role which all Baan users belong to. In Unix, this is r_baan:

create role r_baan;


3) You need to create the actual Oracle users for the Baan users, see ora_users file:

create user heinz identified by XYZ;
grant connect to heinz;
grant ressource to heinz;
grant r_baan to heinz;

VB Calling DLL
By gfasbender at 18 Apr 2008 - 16:44

There has been a few posts concerning the process of calling a Baan DLL function from VB code within a Windows application.

The attached zip file contains an example Excel spreadsheet and DLL that extracts Baan Text.

Recursion Example
By afsfan at 18 Apr 2008 - 16:34
What you have shown below is recursion all right - but it's recursion in 3 GL. The issue is when u try to call events recursively in 4GL - Thats when the "recursion not implemented" message has real value. In your code you are pretty much implementing recursion yourself - only using the system stack. It would be intresting to see if the same works for calling "Event Labels" in a wrapper!

As many of you will already know, recursion is possible in Baan. Despite the 'Recursion not (yet) implemented' message that is sometimes shown when you actually try it. For example, the following works (meaning: I got something like this to work recently, the code below is untested as it stands):


Baan OLE Broker Server
By ckassab at 18 Apr 2008 - 15:56

If you want to connect your baan server to Internet or to develop mobile applications that access directly to baan without using a terminal server, baanOle Broker Server (BOBS) is the answer you are looking for.

So, the mision of BOBS is to help the companies to connect their external applications to Baan in a very easy way and from anywhere.



Also visit the BOBSFAQ and the forum topic BaaN Ole Broker Server (BOBS)


I will be posting articles on how to write apps using BOBS in a blog in the next address: Connecting Applications to Baan
