The features of ERP applications can vary slightly depending on the program you are using. If you are currently looking for an ERP system, you should know that an ERP application generally contains a set of web pages and a database. The web pages provide a general overview of the system and what is required from the system. The database contains detailed information about each system and its functions. Most ERP applications come with a management web site (usually the admin site) that enables the administrators to manage the systems within the application.

A typical ERP application interface includes several data sources, or databases, where data that is returned from the database is stored. The application usually can support many different types of data stored in the data sources. The applications typically can provide a command line interface and a graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI may be used to access the data sources and manipulate the data stored in the data sources. Some ERP applications have built-in applications for remote access to the data sources, to generate a report on a given system or to retrieve data from the data sources. ERP applications can be interactive, using text-based input, screen inputs, or any other appropriate input device. When the application is run as a single process, it does not run as a single process. An ERP application consists of an application program that is a client, or the part of the application that is running on the user’s computer, and a server, or the part of the application that is running on the server. Both programs communicate using a high-level network protocol, called a protocol buffer. When the client program sends data to the server, the server is able to determine whether the data is required by the client and whether the client wants to receive the data. If the server determines that the client wants to receive data, the server returns the client a stream of events that describe the data. The client can then use the events to determine whether it wants to process the data. An ERP application can be written in any language that has a reasonably complete support for the TCP/IP protocol stack. A common protocol stack that is used for both ERP applications is the SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) stack, a superset of the REST (Representational State Transfer) protocol stack. ERP applications written in a language other than this one can still use the REST protocol to communicate with a SOAP server.

These SOAP applications also rely on the use of XML documents to store data. The application program can then use the same tools that the client program uses to process a SOAP document to process the ERP XML document and convert it into a format suitable for the client program. ERP applications written in Microsoft XML Studio can read, write, process, and maintain the XML document in either XML or.NET format.

By using the XML interface of Microsoft XML Studio, ERP applications can build and manage XML documents. The ERP applications need to know how to construct an XML document, including, for example, how to handle attachments (such as lists of objects) and how to translate one XML document into another.

Microsoft XML Studio works on all platforms that support Microsoft XML Studio. Microsoft XML Studio can be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=140797.

  1. I like Steve Nash’s comment-in hockey, your own team would have beaten you up for a punch like that.

    This entire thing is overblown. It happened in New York and the
    press is a bunch of bored, frustrated writers. As long as the fans don’t get hit, it is not a big deal.

  2. d’alessandro is the best in the nba. (in mlb i’ll go tim marchman of the ny sun, in the nfl mike sando of the tacoma (WA) news-trib.) in addition, i became an NBA fan because of hubie brown. i was strictly a college guy before hubie joined the TNT broadcasts. so anytime hubie speaks i listen.

    if you read the article hubie subtly, but directly, chastises isiah for not instructing collins on how to give a hard, “professional” foul–from the elbow down.

    hubie also hints at something a buddy of mine said the day after the brawl. “giving consistent effort on defense–no matter the score–is a sign of respect for your coach.” (i may have already posted that comment but don’t recall.) this team’s propensity to drop its head and stop playing–particularly on defense–as soon as it gets hit with a little 8-0 run is mind blowing. it’s a big part of why the team is consistently down 18-20 points. it’s also the surest sign that they’re not buying what isiah is selling any more than they did larry brown.

    i suppose this is the last comment i’ll make on the matter. then, i’m done. i could swallow the tough-guy routine from collins, jeffries, robinson, et al. a little easier if the knicks hadn’t spent the whole night not caring whether denver scored. where is all this pride in the midst of those 30+ point quarters this team routinely gives up?

  3. Isiah’s mistake was saying the words directly to Anthony. If he wanted to send a “message” he should have told Collins in the huddle, away from the television cameras. He had to know that his conversation would have been captured on TV and the words though not heard could have been deciphered.

    I disagree with Hubie. If I perceived a team was purposefully embarassing my team, I would have no qualms about instructing a hard foul as well. I think that is part of the game, just like a pitcher throwing at a hitter in retaliation for a player stealing a base with his team up x amount of runs. The question becomes was Isiah justified in thinking that Karl was running up the score. I do not know.

    Collins was 100% wrong, cannot foul above the shoulders as a pitcher should never aim for someone’s head.

  4. Hubie nailed it.

    The same goes in life. As soon as you start worrying about what the other guy is doing, you’re screwed. Worry about doing the best you can every single moment, regardless of the score or what’s going on all around you. Then, you’re attentionwill be where it should be, and you’ll be at your best at all times.

  5. I don’t think that pointing to similar behavior in other sports justifies behavior like this in basketball. Besides, beanballs provoke “brawls” in baseball just like this one (but usually with less contact, 50 or more guys running onto the field glaring angrily at each other). Baseball has degraded to the point where if you get hit in the butt with a changeup, it’s justification to charge the mound. Basketball doesn’t need that. (And intentionally throwing at another player is stupid. It may be part of the “tradition” of baseball, but that doesn’t make it less stupid.)

    I’m with Dave Crockett on this one. Isn’t it a little more important to stand up for yourselves during the first 46 minutes?

    I’m guessing Nash hasn’t watched the Coyotes recently (nor have many others, for that matter). Hockey put in a bunch of rules specifically to prevent these shenanigans. Of course, they provoked the same kind of backlash … fighting is a “part of the game”, blah blah blah. I think the end-of-game five-on-five brawls weren’t quite a part of the game that the NHL needed to keep.
