GlobalWare Enterprise Nucleus
STATUS ( 07/27/04 ) : Initial Development Work Started

GWEN is an acronymn for the words GlobalWare Enterprise Nucleus.
It is intended to be a toolkit and remote management console for Caché database applications.
Here is a sample screenshot from the initial development work:

This site is a member of WebRing. To browse visit here.


The web server can be any HTTP server, but the database server should be Caché Version 5.0.x ( or later )
and capable of providing Web Services. The web client is built using PowerBuilder 9
and uses the SOAP interface ( pbsoapclient90.pbd ) to communicate with Caché Web Services.

The compiled GWEN application ( gwen.pbd ) and the SOAP interface ( pbsoapclient90.pbd )
should be located on the HTTP server, and should be referenced in the library list within HTML pages.

For example:

<OBJECT ID="test" NAME="PBRX1" WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100%
CLASSID="CLSID:99991304-9999-1000-8000-080009AC61A9">
<PARAM NAME="_Version" VALUE="65536">
<PARAM NAME="_ExtentX" VALUE="9440">
<PARAM NAME="_ExtentY" VALUE="7112">
<PARAM NAME="_StockProps" VALUE="0">
<PARAM NAME="PBWindow" VALUE="w_run_mode">
<PARAM NAME="LibList" VALUE="http://gwen.sourceforge.net/gwen.pbd;http://gwen.sourceforge.net/pbsoapclient90.pbd;">
<PARAM NAME="PBApplication" VALUE="gwen">
<PARAM NAME="CommandParm" VALUE="-soap address='http://geosan.gware.com/csp/gwen/GWEN.GWENservice.cls'">
</OBJECT>

On the client, the web browser needs to be configured to allow unsigned ActiveX controls,
which in this case refers to the PB Window ActiveX Control.
