      Hello everyone...

       

      I have discussed this earlier on the chat but now I need to check if anything new has happened on this front...

       

      I’m looking into the creation of a “realtime” invoicing system that fetches information from the same service I was trying to connect to when I first looked into this.

       

      At that time I and another developer over here looked at a few solutions.

      The MBS plugin, which my colleges did not get to work.

      The BE plugin which I didn’t get to work

      The Scriptmaster framework which we got to work by creating a set of Java functionality to translate the packages from one form to the other and back. The problem with using Scriptmaster was that the Mac kept asking for Java 6 while the libraries used needed Java 7 or newer.

       

      So we ended up creating a standalone gateway service which is running on a virtual machine.

       

      Then everyone using FM and needing to connect to the service in question was able to do so using this gateway.

       

      ===

       

      Now we need to expand on this service so I would like to ask:

       

      "Is using a gateway, like we did, still the proper way to go or is there some new software or new methods we should be looking into?"

       

      Kind regards

      Hans
