RE: POS
Yes.

All sales are created on the local machine - there is no internet connectivity required.

Of course it is not practical to have POS software out in the field, or remote locations that cannot access the internet - this is the beauty of this solution.

When connectivity IS available the POS machine can be populated with the latest items, prices, discounts, customers and sales created on the POS propogated back to the webERP installation.
The POS keeps track of transactions that have been sent back to webERP and only sends those queued for processing.
Communication and webERP processing all happens over webERP's XML-RPC API

RE: POS
Every api function call is just a simple xml file such as the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<methodCall>
<methodName>weberp.xmlrpc_GetCustomer</methodName>
<params>
<param>
<value><string>TIM001</string></value>
</param>
<param>
<value><string>admin</string></value>
</param>
<param>
<value><string>weberp</string></value>
</param>
</params>
</methodCall>

Which would retrieve the details of debtor TIM001 given login details of admin/weberp

These can easily be stored locally and committed once a link to the server is detected. Obviously some data such as stock details and some configuration parameters would have to be retrieved and stored locally and then be updated when connected to the network.

I suggest some reading up on the xml-rpc protocol first. The manual page for the api is also written using the api so can be studied. I wrote a tutorial for using the api which I believe Phil has put online somewhere.

I used sqlite.

You can download it from

http://www.logicworks.co.nz/Counter-Logic.html

and try it against the webERP demo install at http://www.weberp.org/weberp to see how it works

RE: POS
we have integrated webERP with http://www.opensourceposguide.com/, it is multisite capable as well as runs in both standalone mode and/or connected to a cloud based server. I'll see if I can get some screen shots posted soon, but if anyone would like some more information, please feel free to contact me. patrick@qbc.com

RE: POS
So if I would like to make a mixture of software that uses WebERP on top of some Puppy Linux and POS must be integrated. I also hang on to Joomla for some reason, but i guess integration with Joomla is limited to what was working with Joomla 2.5. Current for Joomla 3.5 is THIS

But its a commercial one and my idea was to bundle up a small business server in general for the third world, where small and informal business makes up to more than 50% and they ain't got money :-) At least not much and not any creditcard.

I have asked about PHP7 in another post, but I also wonder at what time it going to be a new release?

RE: POS
Well my POS is pay only and as soon as I give it to one person then it will be a free for all!!
In some ways it needs someone to give it a birthday visually but the guts are there to expand on - I may yet make it an add-on Open Source project.

I am a HUGE Barry Kauler/puppy linux fan - I did actually do an older version of webERP bundled into a .sfs with all the PHP/MySQL infrastructure installed all together.

However, it is more of a desktop OS than a server solution. There is already a good server solution that bundles webERP. Superb Mini Server

RE: POS
SMS looks great. But it does not "spinn around" WebERP. Its not like a mixture of software in order to bring the best out of WebERP as I see it.

Lets see if good old Puppy can still come up with a few new tricks.
