Joomla and webERP

Joomla and webERP
Hey guys,

New poster here. Great work on webERP, very exciting development in my opinion; now if only we can get the rest of the geek community interested in open-source business applications, haha.

I was just wondering about how webERP works with Joomla. I am pretty familiar with Joomla and its installation, but how do those Joomla add-ons for webERP work exactly?

Like, you install webERP on a server and you install Joomla on a separate one? And then you install the add-ons on Joomla and you associate the webERP server with the Joomla server?

Yeah, any kind of clarification would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

I'm using CARTweberp and looking for another alternative. The idea in CARTweberp is great (no import data, just Joomla using weberp data) but the cart itself has many bugs and you need to dive the code to change basic texts, etc...

So as our online business grows, we are looking for another alternative. Is anyone using a shopping cart (different than Mo's) with Joomla! with data integration?

I would like to know or team up to make any existing shopping cart work integratelly with webERP.

Pak Ricard

RE: Joomla and webERP
I have been working on getting oscommerce integrated - well more than integrated ... basically building it right in to webERP. I have no sponsors for it so it very slow and takes last priority. I am basically taking the code of oscommerce and adapting the fields and structure to webERP database. I've added a couple of new tables to webERP manufacturers and modified salescatprod to have manufacturers in it too. It should be good..... but will take me some time as it is summer here now and piles of other stuff on the go too.

Hi Phil:

Looks good, but the main question (at least for me) is if this osCommerce modification could be used inside a Joomla! website. If I'm not wrong there is a bridge between both of them http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/...ions/19825
but not sure if that will work with your mod.

Also, just a flash idea... should it be enough to take one Joomla shopping cart and modify the CREATE TABLE needed for items, customers, etc for CREATE VIEW reading the data in webERP tables and devivering the view as needed by the shopping cart? Or am I over simplifying the task?

RE: Joomla and webERP
Well I am not that big on Joomla and I was not proposing to have the cart have a dependency on Joomla at all - I am really thinking of an extension to webERP that could potentially be part of webERP that comes already bundled with a shopping cart front end. I know oscommerce is probably one of the ugliest shopping carts ... but also the one written in the procedural style that I can live with! In fact I can see me bringing it into webERP style more as I am removing abstractions wherever I can.

I am tossing up also whether to convert the language translation from defines to gettext as this does have the advantage of having the full text of strings inside the application and therefore adding context.

No doubt it will end up being close to a rewrite of osCommerce - and a very big job indeed. Wish I had more time to do it.

RE: Joomla and webERP
Well, can be an interesting option.. we can always call it from a iframe, so can be workable within Joomla!.

Pls let me know if I could help.

What happens when OSCommerce changes, specifically security changes?

RE: Joomla and webERP
Whilst I started with osCommerce ... it will be very different under the hood - as I said largely a re-write but retaining the visuals - which has never been a strong suite. All the back end functionality for setting up items, pricing, stock quantities, categories etc etc is already there in webERP. I have added manufacturers to the sales categories so now items can be assigned to sales categories/manufacturer as they are in osCommerce.

I am thinking it might become part of webERP to be maintained by us. We'll see how far I get....
