I have tried to install the B1i Integration Component today (SBO 8.8 PL12, MS SQL 2005, Windows Server 2003, JDK 5.0).. After installing the DI Proxy Service, I get every 4-5 seconds an unhandled exception (JIT Debugger of Visual Studio opens). I can stop the DI Proxy Monitor Service to avoid the JIT debugger, but I don't think this was meant so.
After that, the EventSender should be configured. But after step 3 of 5, nothing happens, only the information that some configurations are made.. after a while, I quit the process through the task manager.
I can login to the B1i framework and after setting some other parameters for the xcelsius part, the connection test is successful with it. But the connection test to the company database fails.
If I try to run the event sender setup manually, I receive a strange error message due to a Java exception, that the code page of the sql server is not compatible (Latin1_General_CI_AS ....)
So I give up for this week, hopefully my 11 friends in South Africa are more successful tomorrow...
