Most of today's startups are building their solution on the open source
LAMP stack or Open Solaris AMP stack. However, some of the startups as
they grow and expend, look for commercial alternatives. I've seen
startups and smaller companies deploying Oracle back end as their
database of choice. Small and mid size companies may be familiar with
SAP Business One applications, which is an ERP solution for SMB market.
When using the application, often times companies have to customize the
application and develop a web based interface for their users to extend
the ERP functionality for specified business needs. We've simplified
the developer job by easily integrating B1 Web Services into the IDE
via the NetBeans Plugin
The Plugin powers up developers with Business One Web Services
integration, drag and drop visual editor, and Glassfish auto-deployment
features. The details of how to use the plugin, refer to the Building Web Applications with NetBeans IDE and SAP Business One Web Services
article published on SDN site.
