I am tasked with writing a quick fix replacement for a very old dbase
application running on WinXP. I am considering using LO Base with ODBC(SDBC?)
to connect to a Postgresql-9.1 RDBMS hosted on a Linux server.
Assuming that I can get the connectivity between LO on the MS-Win desktops and
the PostgreSQL-9.1 instance on the Linux server host I intend to use the forms
capability of LO to provide the user interface. Which leads me to my
question. Is there any testunit-like or Rspec-like framework for designing
and building LO user interfaces; particularly for testing input forms and
I am not aware of any testing tool at all.
The only advice i can give, is not to use Forms as a user interface.
Make your connection with your server, then use Dialogs, macros and SQL
statements to build your users interfaces.
Do your printing to spreadsheets instead off Reports
Use the book (and the include macro code) from Roberto Benitez + the
Base Document from Andrew Pitonyak as a starting point
Hope it helps
Are there any issues with respect to Multi-User access via LO forms across
ODBC/SDBC to PostgreSQL that I should be made aware of?
