We have an order management system that makes calls to the AS/400 in two
ways.  We make direct calls for inventory, vendors, etc., anything that is
a direct data retrieval.  This is done with calls from within the order
application, the data is not stored into a Notes db.  We also use one of
the Domino Connectors any time we need processing done by the ERP system,
pricing, credit, etc.  The direct calls are ofcourse faster as there are
less steps in the process.

We also have applications that pull data from the ERP into Domino
databases, however, these are for reporting use, Sales History, Customers,
etc.  I would not look at moving data into a Domino db for a
live/interactive application as being a best case solution.

I've got a client who is in the process of developing a purchasing
application in Domino. The discussion they are now having relates to

Their RPG programmer thinks that they will get acceptable performance by
doing lookups of vendors, G/L account numbers, etc., by passing these
parameters to the accounting system machine and getting responses back.

The Domino programmer is saying that they need to have "duplicate"
databases on the accounting system machine and the Domino machine, and then
just keep them in synch.

When these master files are updated on the accounting system machine, a
program can be written to push this data into work files that can then be
retrieved by the Domino machine using an agent that runs on a frequent

I'd be interested to hear about similar experiences both ways.
