MV CONNECT 1.6.3 RELEASE NOTES
For summary of new features in MV Connect 1.6.3, see Release Notes.
GETTING TO KNOW MV CONNECT
MVConnect is a cross platform Web/Rest api development package. MVConnect has two components.
- A small web server to handle inbound web calls
- A set of pick subroutines to build out your web/rest application
On jBASE 5.6 and newer we have built a web server into our multi-protocol jAgent service. jAgent on jBASE is used for most communication into jBASE by external programs. This includes C#, JAVA, and ODBC. This is the recommended way to build web/rest services on jBASE 5.6+. Follow the instructions below for installing jAgent and then jump straight to "Get Started with MV Connect" below.
For all platforms we have a cross platform webserver called MVAppsvr that allows access to pick by running the Pick executable. The primary difference is with MVAppsvr a MVDB account is installed to hold the Pick side subroutines. Since MVDashboard uses the same MVAppsvr web api kit we combined the two installers. Therefore if you are installing on other platforms the MVConnect installer is the same as the MVDashboard installer. When you are done you will have a free one user copy of MVDashboard along with the Rest subroutines. You only use this version if you are not on jBASE 5.6+. This version can be installed side by side with the jAgent version but keep in mind it has it's own licensing. On jBASE 5.6 all the pick side subroutines required for rest are built in and available in any account. With the MVAppsvr version you will have to follow the instructions on how to setup q-pointers to files and code for other accounts.
