I have seen some recent questions about info/experience with NuTech. I'm
not really familiar with it but I know we will be using it for some scanner
functions mapping shipping in ERP LX. I think this is its primary
function. I'm really only familiar with the basic screen mapping APIs
which are available and I have to say they are great. I have found that
you can use the screen mapping APIs with any screens. You can use their
samples as a guide. We are still on BPCS 4.05CD (planning for ERP LX
8.3.3) and we have automated some of those functions. For example, in
BOM500 for maintaining bills of material. This cut quite a bit of manual
intervention. The mapping starts a virtual interactive session that you
don't see. You just have to be prepared for what could be displayed. Your
RPG program would have the input data entered in certain positions then you
could send a function key then read the screen in certain positions for
screen names and error messages. Automating manual entry is powerful but
if something unexpected happens, you could end up with partial or corrupt
data. We have a map for signing into BPCS. Then the other maps call it
before their functions. I know there are more features that what I have
stated. There are others here with more experience and Rob already gave
out the name kevinr in an earlier post as the manager for these inquiries
at our facility.

We have run into a minor bug related to CL screens using the SNDRCVF WAIT
(*NO) then ENDRCV. Something about the "invite" function of the virtual
terminal makes it hang. Just sending another function key works around the
issue.
