DOWNLOADING AND DEPLOYMENT OF BAPLIE
This version uses the mobile disk based data system , which is slightly slow as each data is verified and placed securely onto the database.
Advantage - Once we have the BAPLIE converted into a data base , data extraction and display becomes very fast .
Disadvantage: Data conversion is a slow process, a BAPLIE containing a 1000 containers will take about a minute to process , if you have 22000 containers in the EDI , it will take about 20 minutes to process all data.
But this is just ONE-TIME OPERATION so the advantages over ride this delay in processing.
Our Advance Version which is 18.0 uses XML data as BAPLIE is also available in XMLformat. If you use the SMDG BAPLIE format this APP converts the EDI into XML.
Advantage you get lightening fast processing of data as all processing is done using ram.
