Barcode Tool helps printing barcodes and associating them physically to an article.
The DB Converter is a universal database converter integrated to the SOClass system kernel. It offers a tool to automatically convert structure and/or contents of tables between databases of different types, generating and executing SQL database-independent object creation and data insertion statements and generating real database statements for external purposes.
The DB Converter is a pure Java application that uses a user-definable properties file containing parameters to be set according to the expected type of conversion:
- From a source database into a target database;
- From a source database into a target plain file;
- From a source plain file into a target database;
- From a source database to target XML file;
- From a source XML file to target database.
The DB Debugger provides a tool to monitor the communication between SOClass environment and the database.
It is very useful for application developers when they add new modules to SOClass and want to test their operation with the database.
The application developer has the option to set a filter which database requests to be monitored by the DB Debugger.
Document Library Import
This tool gathers data about Binders, Shortcuts, Business Units, Accesses and language properties files from the already installed server and inserts them into the file containing information about a module’s installation.
Data Object Model Editor
The Data Object Model is the model used to organize and represent the data of an e-document, as well as the business rules and events that link to the data. The DOM Editor is the best alternative to coding it manually and offers intuitive and fast editing, thanks to its graphical representation.
The Language Editor provides the application developer with a user friendly tool to translate text and labels appearing in a module’s interface.
The Module Manager, the SOM Wizard tool, enables creation of a new empty module with the proper SOClass module architecture.
A new module does not include e-documents, which will have to be developed by the application developers meeting the customer’s requirements.
Visual Page Editor
The VP Editor tool is an alternative to the manual coding of the visual controls creation on a visual page. Controls can be created and positioned visually, and the corresponding Java code is automatically generated.
This tool creates tables and imports their content in an existing database. The mechanism uses XML files to describe the database structure and the records to insert. The method of creation and population requires the generation of separate files: one XML script for creation, another for insertion.
The ENV Export tool gives the developers the option to export the entire environment of an installed SOClass system with all its settings (Customers, Users, Business Units, Accesses, Binders, etc.) Upon export it builds a SOM file ready for installation via the MAST tool. This tool makes the SOClass environment portable.
