OpenJournal + CK-ERP Demo

Postby ckwu » Mon Feb 23, 2009 2:46 am

Hi, folks,

I have just completed the preliminary version of a (OpenJournal <-> CK-ERP) connector. A demo of (OpenJournal 2.2.2 + CK-ERP 0.29.1) is available at,

http://ck-erp.org/ojs/ (please login using, username=demouser, password=demouser)

As far as I can tell, an (OpenJournal + CK-ERP) installation will be most useful to educational institutes and/or publishing houses. They will be able to maintain an online journal publishing operation's accounting book within OpenJournal's login environment.

Best Regards,
CK

Hi CK,

That's very interesting -- I've never actually used ERP software myself. Does your software actually interact with OJS in any way (say, in handling subscriptions etc.)? From the demo, all I can ascertain is that there's a link to the ERP at the top, and that authentication bridges between the two. Are you planning on (or have you already implemented) any further integrations? We'd be happy to hear any comments you might have on the work you've done.

Cheers,
James

Hi, James,

Thank you for your interest in the (OpenJournal <-> CK-ERP) integration.

Based on a stepwise approach, creation of the connector (embedded link + authentication bridge + some other minor linkages) is a first step. Other things like syncronization of processing logic and harmonization of processed data are future enhancements to be carried out in the distant future (perhaps rather distant future). However, in the spirit of open source collaborative development, I would encourage any interested developer to carry out these enhancements his/her-self and contribute the developed codes back to OpenJournal's and CK-ERP's main codebases. At the same time, it is important to note that a lot more system integration tests need to be performed before the connector, in its current form, can be formally released.

Best Regards,
CK

Hi, tamarax,

I am afraid this is really off-topic here. However, moderator permitting, I'll just add a short comment. With your mechanical engineering background, if you are interested in ERP consulting, I would suggest gathering a broad understanding of business operations and how computer is being used to facilitate such operations. Most importantly, home in your specialty focus on faculty management aspects of a business.

Best Regards,
CK

PS - moderator - thank you for your patience.
