Ok, I've just posted a few weeks ago a question about linking erlang with
legacy systems using ODBC or similar. My goal is a bussines suite in Erlang,
probably with an interface in other language more suitable (Java?).
I'm very interested in a project wich name can be ;) Open-ERP ...

I know it is a very big work, but it must be started in some point someday

Fantastic, I have no too much time, but I'm VERY interested.

I don't have played too much with Erlang, but in a bussines environment we
must deal with legacy databases (Oracle, Informix,...)

I don't know

The same for me.

I know a place where we can test it in a real production environment.

It's nothing.
