Modifying UBE\'s on a Terminal Server with Xe


Does it work ? Anyone tried yet ?

I know the manual SAYS it should work - but any development people out there who could update us on how they finally got multi-user Writable TAM files ?

Map the \\Deployment\B733 to a drive letter (such as q:) on all fat
workstations and terminal servers.

It is possible to Modify UBE\'s on Citrix with Xe

OK - its official.

It is completely possible to run any of the OneWorld Design tools on a Citrix Server - it is obviously not possible to compile Business Functions on Terminal Server (due to the fact that Microsoft Visual C++ is not supported on Terminal Server environments) - but IT IS POSSIBLE to run RDA or FDA on a Terminal Server !

This is a huge step - that JD Edwards obviously still to this day (3 months after realease) don't understand ! The ability to use the JD Edwards Toolset without the necessity of a full client is extremely good news, I am sure, to most customers.

No wonder why Citrix stock is heading up today...!

By the way - its the Token system that allows the tools to be run on Citrix - as I suggested when Xe was Beta !!!! I'd love to see the Java solution try and run the toolset next........

Re: It is possible to Modify UBE\'s on Citrix with Xe

I find this very interesting because when I called response line about this issue - this is the response I got:

Call Number 4068958

<Q> 1. Development on the Terminal Server?
2. What about Report Writing?

<A> 1. No, JDE still recommends doing development work from a workstation (fat client).
2. Yes, but their are limitations. You cannot create templates.
Cannot checkout versions. You have to make a copy of the version or create it from scratch. Then if you check that version back in, then it is lost to the terminal server. You would then have to make a copy of that version and then check it out and make changes.

If anyone can expand on this - I would appreciate it. I am having huge issues with remote report writing (we would need to create templates - not just modify versions). Also, if you can create reports on terminal server - would there be a way to run just the new report locally so that we would not have to do deployments to the enterprise server daily? Any suggestions would help.

Thanks. Melissa

Re: It is possible to Modify UBE\'s on Citrix with Xe

There certainly seems to be some confusion here. Not only that, but I am also currently investigating different behaviours of RDA under Citrix between customers. One customer (without OWDEVELOPER set up as a group) has no issue modifying reports on a Citrix server - whereas the other customer seems to have issues. The only differences seems to be the release of Service Pack the customers are using. Very strange....

I would love to hear an official opinion from JDE why RDA should NOT work under Citrix - especially with the argument that the token system provides now. "corrupt specs" is no longer an argument - its an excuse.

Re: Modifying UBE\'s on a Terminal Server with Xe

Hi Jon,

We have a test lab setup of OneWorld Xe on the following platform:
Enterprise server: Windows 2000 Server (SP1), SQLServer 7.0 (SP2)
Deployment server: Windows 2000 Server (SP1), OneWorld Xe (SP13)
Terminal server: Windows 2000 Terminal Services (SP1)

We have no problems running RDA from Terminal Server Clients after a standard installation of OneWorld Xe (Typical Installation Plan). The only issue is, that after a version of a report is checked-in from a Terminal Server Client, it can't be checked-out again. We use the workaround of the NT User Group OWDEVELOPER to be able to check-out versions again.

Kind regards,
Koos Oostdijck
(Test Lab Administrator)

Re: Modifying UBE\'s on a Terminal Server with Xe

As I said - you have SP13.0 running. From SP13.1 onwards the RDA requires the OWDEVELOPER group to be able to just run any tool. It seems as if when Xe got released - Development let users run the toolset on Terminal Servers then had second thoughts and secured it down AGAIN. As I said last month - an excuse not a legitimate reason anymore.

Re: It is possible to Modify UBE\'s on Citrix with Xe

What modifications need to be made to Citrix servers? AS/400 enterprise server? desktop thin client? To achive such greatness.
