Port of VB Point of Sale to Distributed ErLang
Sat May 7 05:39:18 CEST 2005
I appreciate your thoughts and directions for a new Erlang developer.
I've just recently come across erlang and have become really intrigued by it
and its abilities.
I've read alot of Docs and some of the post on the mailinglist here....
there is alot to comprehend and take in. Coming from a C/C++ and VB
background, it a little different to fully understand and comprehend and
overview of erlang. I'm going straight away to Joe Armstrongs pdf to read
While learning and building on my previous knowledge, I'd still like to make
strides forward with my current programming efforts. Unfortunately, I'm not
in a position to totally stop all forward progress on issues.
What I want to do is Port a server application to Erlang, while still
keeping my Internet/Network Clients on their current VB Apps. I have a Point
of sale that I would like to expand to take advantage of Erlangs distributed
and fault tolerant features......I also have a game server that Erlang would
work well with too.
Is it possible to keep some of the POS Server application in VB and enhance
it with Erlang process to do some of the back end processes.
Any way for this to work to increase the thru put and increase max # of
Any pointers would be appreciated.
