Mobile POS for Openbravo POS 3/10

I just have way way too much pressure. I feel, I am going to collapse. The software is not ready yet, I have a list of like 7 critical bugs under the openbravo forge. I just finished testing the full sync through USB. I have not done or tested ftp sync, aka web sync. Keep receiving 2-3 request for keys a day.
 Fernando is doing his best, I have no idea when we will finish. These are the list of bugs I am just dead.

Mobile POS for Openbravo POS 2/10

Well, I worked on starting to update Openbravo POS database from my PDA data, originally tickets and ticketlines. I will publish the results on the Openbravo Development wiki I created, so far so good. Will update sourceforge with the latest code. This means, an end user can create tickets (openbravo pos sales orders) and when sync happens, these tickets can be scrutinized from the Ob POS itself, and exported to the Ob ERP. These relationships on these tables can be very convoluted. I have not found good specs on it. I just basically using pgAdmin III write raw sql and test it inserting/selecting/modifying dummy data. Interpreting the errors, and going back to the drawing board. No wonder I have a beta, this by no means is stable code.
  I noticed also people downloading the soft but they are not registering it. I am sorry but no email, no key. If they think, they can hack the key, look be my guess.

I am also keeping my eye on the Openbravo ERP so when I finish this one, you are next, and Magento I will describe Magento as an unbeilabele piece of code written, I mean the best never seen such a great web app.

Mobile POS for Openbravo POS 1/10

  I guess will need 10 more posts, before I finish. Because actually I am downsizing ( this word is recession friendly) the Mobile POS from QuickBooks to make it works for Ob POS. I have to remove Timetracking, Estimates, Vendors, Bills, Checks and more modules that Ob POS doesn't use. So doing some tests I noticed a menu, with the Timetracking choice enable. This doesn't make sense as Ob POS doesn't have timetracking. I have to make sure I disable, obfuscate, hide all these extra menus, choices, modules because it could confuse an end user.
 Enough, download, remove, re-install, and test to see all data making sense, all menu choices making sense.

 Ob POS has something call tickets. I have to rename the labels to read 'Tickets'

 I know, I know is getting there. I wonder the Spanish translation what will be, and German ? Ob POS runs localized in all these languages, at some point Mobile POS will have to behave/display like his localized master. I will get there, but for now English.

 ...and and you know is coming Mobile POS for Openbravo ERP. I dont know how, when but it will be done. I promise you, you will see OB ERP data on your Windows Mobile phone. Let me finish with this one.

Openbravo Mobile POS

Things are moving along, I added this weekend the posibilty to login to the PDA, with the same user name and password used by Ob POS.
Now, if someone download the app. to run it you need to register it and I will issue a unique key for end users to test it and interact with it. No email, no trial as simple as that.
