Hello All,

Good day!

Having developed few Windows desktop applications for Engineering analysis using UPP, I'm facing a challenge: to embark on developing an ERP system for a medium sized organisation. It is going to be a big task involving lots of databases. While planning for the work, I'm trying to find answers to the following questions:

1. For databases, I'm planning to use MySQL or MS SQL; any recommendations?
2. Being completely new to web development, this question is haunting me: do I have to learn PHP/PYTHON, or SKYLARK can do better than them?

Last few days' research is indicating towards PHP+MySQL combination as most favorite among developers . However, to do it in PHP I have to learn it from scratch, while with SKYLARK I guess the gained knowledge of UPP may provide leverage.

Will be grateful to hear about it from folks.

Thanks and regards,
Pradip

Hi Pradip,

If you don't know any PHP and you're already comfortable with using DBs in Uppm it would seem a good idea to use what you know Smile Skylark can do anything you might need. I have written some webs in it and it works great.

However, there are few points to consider.

1. Are you the only developer? Finding PHP developers for your project in future will be much easier than looking for someone comfortable with Upp.
2. There are also other technologies, in most major languages (nodeJS, python, ...)
3. You could write simple frontend (any language, or even static html+js) in some language and let it access the data through upp/Skylark backend (which would return just JSON data, REST API, or something similar).

Other people might provide more insights... But in the end, you should decide what is most comfortable for you Wink

Best regards,
Honza

Dear Honza,

Thanks a lot for your views.

Me along with 2 juniors, as a team, are learning C++ and UPP; we have already delivered few desktop applications. The problem is, we all are novices in web development Crying or Very Sad, even for static HTML.

I have done some databases work before with MS Access, and have made some test apps with UPP+SQL, I think I can manage it.

Agree that PHP developers will be easier to find. However, being an Engineering organisation, this company prefers hiring Engineers and training them. I may appoint some more Engineers and train them in UPP technologies.

And finally there is demand for delivery Razz, too long learning curve may hurt us.

So I'll give SKYLARK a go.

Cheers,
Pradip.

Sure I will, Xemuth.

But do you have any apprehension about going ahead with SKYLARK for such project?

Regards,
Pradip

Absolutly not,

I'm actually learning Upp and gonna have to deal with the same project as you.
And, before your post I didnt even wonderer about using Upp in this kind of project.
So I think it could be really interesting to stay on Upp if this one with skylark is
enough good to answer my project

Have a good day!

Instead of developing new ERP consider using open source ERP.

I suggest ERPNext. Check features before you start development.

It has active community. And truly open source like UPP.

You may require some customization based on your needs.


Warm Regards

Deepak
